Issues: Bereavement; Divorce; Miscarriage; Parenthood
The Capulets and the Montagues had nothing on the Ryders and the Morgans! But despite the fact that each one was from one of the rival ranching families, Jenny Ryder and Win Morgan had a passionate summer affair four years ago—one that resulted in pregnancy. They got married and promptly lost the baby. Heartbroken, Jenny let herself be talked into divorcing Win…without ever having revealed the marriage to her family—or his.
Now Jenny’s back, and one impulsive night means that Jenny and Win are about to be parents again! This time, they have to fess up. Their future happiness and child depend on it. But Win is keeping his own secret—that “divorce” he and Jenny supposedly got might not be worth the paper it (wasn’t!) printed on…
An Early Christmas Gift is a story about second chances – a do-over, if you will – except that the second time around comes after years have passed, maturity is achieved and clarity is more possible.
Jenny Ryder and Win Morgan were born into rival cattle-ranching families. A relationship between seems impossible. But when love is involved, is anything possible? It takes strength to embark on a forbidden journey with someone, even for love, but sometimes your heart has to dictate your actions no matter what your head says.
I hope you enjoy Jenny and Win’s journey. And I wish you the best holiday possible!
