A child’s Christmas wish…
Gives love a second chance
Becky Tullous has never forgiven boy-next-door Bo Goodnight for breaking her teenage heart. Now the SWAT sergeant is back in Horseshoe, Texas, and getting far too attached to her three-year-old daughter. Becky never wanted Bo in Luci’s life, but her developmentally delayed little girl is making great progress with him around. Will Bo prove he’s worth a second chance this Christmas?
BECKY STOPPED OUTSIDE the door when she heard Bo’s deep smooth masculine voice, which touched her skin like cashmere, soothing, comfortable and deliciously rich. The baritone made her want to lean her head against the wall and absorb every nuance of his voice into her skin.
“You have a lot of stuffed animals and dolls,” Bo was saying.
“This. Is. Bear. Soft.” In Becky’s mind’s eye she could see Luci rubbing her face against the stuffed animal.
“What’s this one’s name?”
He wasn’t worming his way into Luci’s life. She stepped into the room and Luci ran to her.
Becky picked her up and kissed her cheek. “I need to talk to Bo.”
Luci ran to the kitchen and Becky faced Bo with steel-like determination. He stood from the bed and his tall frame looked out of place in this pink little girl’s room. Dark eyes stared back at her with a heat level that matched hers and she didn’t know if there was a way to win against him. It would be better if he wasn’t so darn good-looking. With his longish hair and growth of beard he reminded her of Keanu Reeves. And Bo was just as big a daredevil as the characters the actor played.
“You want to talk? Talk. I’ve been trying to get you to talk for years so this is a momentous occasion.”
“Stay away from my daughter.” Becky was tired, so tired, and this bickering was not helping. “Bo, please go home.”
“Okay.” He took a step toward her and she had to resist taking a step backward. A musky scent mixed with Irish Spring soap drifted to her, weakening her resolve. “I’ll go, but first, I want to know who Luci’s father is.”
“I’m her father, aren’t I? You’ve kept it from me all these years.”
