You've all met the children and Eleanora and Tom English…but how exactly did down-on-her luck waitress, Eleanora Watters, meet trust fund hottie, Tom English?

You won't want to miss this Christmas novel that tells the story of how Eleanora met Tom, while he was visiting Vail in the 1980s. 

Exclusive Excerpt

“I didn’t know you were an only child.”
Tom gestured to a double chaise by the pool’s edge, and Eleanora sat down, swinging her legs up on the canvas seat as Tom sat down beside her. “Technically, I’m not. I have a little brother, my father’s son from his second marriage. But he’s only eighteen. We barely know each other.”
“I see,” she said, her voice kind and warm. “So lots of brothers sounded ideal.”
“A big family sounded ideal,” said Tom, putting his arm around her shoulders and pulling her against his side. “Still does.”
“Is that what you want someday?”
“Mm-hm,” he breathed softly. “A gaggle of kids so they’re never lonesome, so they always have each other.”
“Sounds nice,” she said. “Coming from four, I always thought—well, when I thought of having a family, which wasn’t very often—I always imagined it big. I don’t know any different.”
“A working mom?” he asked. “Managing your bookstores and a big family?”
She looked up at him and grinned. “Something like that. Maybe.”
He stared into her eyes for a long time, one hand caressing her shoulder as the other reached for her face. Finally he lowered his lips to hers, kissing her gently, reverently, without the heat from their previous kiss, but with ten times the tenderness.
“I hope you get everything you want,” he whispered, his breath soft against her lips. “I like you so much, Eleanora English.”
“I like you too,” she answered, nestling against his chest and closing her tired eyes.
In no time at all, they were asleep, held fast in each other’s arms, their dreams mingling and marrying under the fathomless desert sky.
