Description:
Firefighter Jamey Tucker knows
three things in life to be true: an honorable man doesn’t go back on his word;
never hurt a woman; and lasting love isn’t a myth. But with his recent move to
a new job at Appleton Fire Station, the long hours don’t offer hope of finding
the love he’s looking for.
When Jamey meets beautiful
pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst after hearing her sing Santa Baby in a
supermarket aisle, he offers her a promise he discovers he can’t keep. Heather
has been betrayed by men in the past, making it hard for Jamey to gain her
trust. Determined to find a way to win her heart, Jamey uses firefighter
engine-uity and Heather’s favorite song to prove he’s got Christmas spirit she
can believe in all year.

Excerpt:
She laughed out
loud this time, and the sound of her voice rang through the air, pure and
clear. He could listen to that voice for hours. “These are for my kids at the
hospital. I’m an R.N. at County. We’re decorating the pediatric ward. And spoiling
the children too, a bit. I’m baking cookies for our holiday party on Saturday.”
She held out her
hand for a handshake. “I’m Heather Longhurst.”
Jamey introduced
himself and took her hand. He told her what he did and where he worked. Her
skin felt soft against his palm, though her grasp conveyed confidence and
strength.
He cocked his
chin. “What kind of cookies?”
“Chocolate chip,
of course. Is there any other kind?”
Jamey shook his
head. He could almost taste melted dark chocolate and smell the aromas of fresh
baked flour, eggs and sugar filling her kitchen. His mouth watered. He hoped
she couldn’t hear his stomach rumble. He hadn’t eaten in over fourteen hours.
“No ma’am.”
Heather returned
a lopsided grin. “You’re not from around here, are you?”
“Southern
Indiana, born and raised.”
She moved out of
the way of an elderly couple trying to pass with their half-filled shopping
cart. Jamey moved too and they strolled together toward the exit. “I’ll make a
plate of cookies for you, if you stop by the hospital to pick it up.” She said.
Jamey smiled at
her, his heart lifting at the turnaround in his day. “That’s the best offer
I’ve had since I moved to Appleton.”
“You’re new in
town?”
“Been here
almost three months.”
“Glad to meet
you, Jamey Tucker. See you about one o’clock?”
“I’ll be there.
Count on it.”
“I will.” She
smiled back and their gazes locked. His mood soared with the realization she
was flirting with him. The day had definitely taken a turn for the better.
