Ellin Bennett had a daughter to raise, a career to save and a newspaper to run. Rescuing a stranded Santa Claus from the roadside was not on her To-Do list. Worse yet, "Santa" was none other than sexy Jack Madden, schoolteacher and part-time writer for Ellin's paper. The man's smile could stop traffic… dangerous for a single mom temporarily stuck in Smallsville! A wife and daughter were not tops on Jack's Christmas list. He'd been a content bachelor until he met Ellin. Getting her to settle down would be no easy task, but this small-town hunk was about to give his sophisticated editor a crash course on love…and family.
