Attempting to save her from her matchmaking family, he announces they’re a couple. His good deed backfires when they’re instantly included in each and every holiday event in town. So much for solitude.

Only the more time he spends with the beautiful, cheery brunette, the more he yearns to make things real between them. But he and Amber want different things, and Michael could never be the family man she’s looking for.

The Twelfth Night Bride by Kelly McClymer

From USA Today Bestselling Author Kelly McClymer…a Christmas tale of love and redemption with a touch of the fey…
Christmas is a time for miracles, or so Kate Fenster, the youngest of the Fenster siblings, hopes when she heads to Ireland to confront her absentee bridegroom.
The Earl of Blarney had called in her childhood promise to marry him. It had been a lighthearted bargain, she would marry him if he let her ride his prized stallion Diablo. Charmed but not quite trusting the silver-tongued Irish lord, Kate sets him to prove he is more interested in her heart than her dowry.
The courtship takes a dark turn when, just hours after their wedding, her bridegroom is called home to Ireland and refuses to return to her in England or allow her to come to him in Ireland. Kate, tired of waiting, must travel to another country to face her husband — and the fact that everything he had told her was only half-true. Now it is her turn to prove herself to him. To prove that she is the right wife for him. The one who will stand by his side while he rebuilds his lands, regains the trust of his people, and keeps his mad, fey sister safe.

Introducing Dr. Aaron Kendall

Age: 36
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Tennessee
Profession: pediatrician/neonataology

Please provide a physical description of yourself.

I’m tall. Six three and I have athletic build. I inherited my mother’s black hair and blue that were passed down from her Irish ancestors.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

I live in Lafayette Falls, Tennessee where I practice medicine. I’m a partner at the Lafayette Falls Childrens’ Clinic. I completed a fellowship in neonatology and I’m the medical director of the newborn nursery at the medical center. I love sports and I played college baseball. I live in a large log-and-stone house on a wooded lot in the country. I bought with the intention of raising a family there. After my divorce, I kept the house and now my cranky widowed father lives with me and my youngest brother, a frat boy/con artist, comes and goes.

Who is the significant other in your life?

After my painful divorce, I decided to take a break from love and serious relationships. That was before my life got upended by Lia Montgomery.

How do you dress?

I wear scrubs at work. Tee shirts and jeans at home. I like pin-striped dress shirts and slacks when I go out.

Do you get by, live comfortably, live extravagantly?

I live comfortably and I don’t really want for anything in the way of material items. My heart longs for what money can’t buy: true love.

What is your family like?

My mother, a nurse, has passed away. My dad, Frank, is a retired cop and he is very outspoken at times. I have three brothers. I’m the oldest. Two of my brothers live out-of-state and my youngest brother, Stevie, is still in college. He’s been in college several years now. Stevie is something of a con artist and I never know if he’s telling me the truth, but he’s fun to be with and I love him.

Do you have children?

No, but I am in the process of adopting an unwanted baby. I have always wanted children and I had hoped my wife and I would have a large family, but that wasn’t to be.

Now I have a second chance at having a son and I’m thrilled.

What past event causes you the most fear?

The day I came home and found a note from my wife. She had left. She loved another man whom she had been seeing and who was the father of the child she was expecting. I had no idea and I was shattered to lose her as well as the baby I thought was mine. I never want that to happen to me again.

Who in your life has the power to hurt you the most and why?

Lia. She’s Baby John’s aunt and when she arrives, everything in my world changes. All my plans for adopting John are in jeopardy because, well, she showed up during a bachelor party my dad was having for a friend. Needless to say, she got the wrong impression of me because I’d had a few drinks, the house was mess and we had several blow up dolls and porn on TV. She was horrified with me and the fact that I was single makes me totally unacceptable. Unfortunately, I am attracted to her, like love-at-first-sight, so I may be in trouble. You can read Chapter 1 to see what I mean.
