Step out of the winter chill and into the warmth of Fool's Gold, California, the charming small-town setting for a new holiday novella from New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery
Famous former NFL stars don't date single working moms like Bailey Voss. She'll allow herself to daydream about Kenny Scott's muscles and killer smile, but wanting more would lead to post-holiday regret. Then Kenny volunteers to run a toy drive with Bailey, and she learns that he's not just hot…he's also generous, funny, nice. The whole package—tantalizingly out of reach.
The ache of past loss reminds Kenny why he needs to avoid getting too close to anyone. Especially to a gorgeous redhead and her adorable little girl. Mess it up, and he'd lose them both. Yet Kenny can only resist Bailey for so long. And as festive spirit spreads throughout the town, he's all wrapped up in Bailey's sweet, sexy kisses and determined to make this the first of many Christmases together…
Back to Fools Gold, California! In a new holiday novella we finally get to see what might happen between Bailey and Kenny. Kenny has been a bit of a enigma since he arrived in town. He was one of three former NFL stars now retired and running a PR firm with another friend. He comes across as this lovable guy but whenever it came down to kids he balked a bit. Apparently it's really hard to ignore cute little girls when they engage the heart because Kenny finds himself helping out Bailey's little girl. When Kenny finds himself helping out the annual toy drive with Bailey thanks to Mayor Marsha he's all in until he freaks out. This is a quick fast get to your heart strings story. Love and loss are a part of life and Kenny and Bailey have had to deal with both and that changes you. It's how you deal with it that matters. I have always loved Kenny and Bailey and while i loved this novella i had hope for a full novel. In any case though it was well done by Susan Mallery and i look forward to see what's in store for them in future books.
