Josh and Annie find out if love really is better the second time around.
Romance author Liz Flaherty
Annie Houston has a lot to celebrate this Christmas. Her bookstore is thriving and she owns the coziest house in town. Still, something is missing from her life--until her single ex-husband comes for the holidays with his stepsons in tow. There's a lodging crisis and Annie invites them all to stay at her place.
Josh thought leaving Annie was the biggest mistake he'd ever made, but this was worse. Living under the same roof with her has stirred cherished memories and delicious feelings. But it's too late for him and Annie. Or is it?
...Josh's love for the boys left Annie on the outside looking in. Just as she had been ten years ago when he buried himself in his work. It separated them as effectively as the divorce had. Annie loved children, she liked Aaron and Gray, but she wanted to raise her own babies, not teenagers another mother hadn't wanted. The babies did not have to be of her flesh--adoption was fine with her--but they did need to have smaller shoe sizes than her own and they needed not to have belonged to Josh's other ex-wife.
