Gabriella Torres loves returning to her hometown of San Antonio for the holidays–the decorations, the magic and her large family. As icing on the cake, she will serve as midwife for one of her cousins. Her Christmas visit also provides a temporary distraction from a looming obligation. 

Luke Davenport has traveled half-way around the world to accept the role as town doctor in San Antonio. But when he arrives to complete domestic chaos, the sheriff offers his hospitality, Luke, who’s grown up alone on the rough streets of London, can’t turn down the offer and enjoys the glimpse of a large and friendly family. While he’s embraced by all, Luke tries to keep his distance. His past remains a threat and the alluring Gabby Torres makes him dream of a brighter but impossible future.

When Gabby learns that Luke has never truly experienced Christmas, she sets out on a mission…to make this Christmas the best that Luke could ever have. As they spend intimate moments together, Luke begins to lose his heart to the woman who is showing him what life as part of a family could be like and Gabby finds it challenging to deny her attraction to the handsome, skilled, and kind doctor.

When the ghosts of their pasts rise up to haunt them, will Christmas magic and love be strong enough to guarantee the happiness they’ve always dreamed of?
