Release day: Six Geese for Monica
Today is the official release day for Six Geese for Monica by Brenda Gayle (ebook, The Wild Rose Press). Here’s the blurb:
Seven years ago Monica Stevens left her home town with no intention of returning. Her inability to conceive a child not only devastated her fifteen-year marriage, it made her doubt her appeal as a woman. When her mother has to undergo surgery, she reluctantly agrees to come back and run the Mother Goose Daycare.
Luke Donovan is struggling to balance his career with his duties as a single father to six adopted children. The death of his wife has thrown the adoption of their two youngest sons into limbo. He is further stymied by a dogmatic social worker who questions whether a single parent can adequately care for so many children.
Initially brought together by the children, Monica and Luke quickly surrender to their growing passion. But when she learns about the threatened adoption, Monica wonders if Luke’s interest in her is only as a mother to his children. Is history about to repeat itself, or will a Christmas miracle finally give Monica the family she’s always dreamed of having?
Brenda dropped by today to tell us a little about her book.
I love Christmas stories, so when The Wild Rose Press asked me to contribute to its Twelve Brides of Christmas anthology, I jumped at the opportunity. What could be more wonderful than a series that involves brides, Christmas, and one of the ‘gifts’ of the famous Twelve Days of Christmas song? Many of my books deal with the concept of what constitutes ‘family’—what you’re born into or what you create for yourself. It’s also a question faced by the hundreds of thousands of infertile couples around the world—one my husband and I also wrestled with. Technology can only do so much. But miracles do happen; I am proof. And so this Christmas, I was happy to be able to give Monica a second chance to be a mother. I hope you enjoy Six Geese for Monica as much as I enjoyed writing it. Merry Christmas.
