The Best Gifts Are Given From The Heart

When spirited Maeve O'Malley stumbles upon an unconscious man one snowy night in December, she doesn't think twice before coming to his rescue. But her good intentions are no match for her brother's sense of propriety, and before long Maeve is married to the nameless--and irresistibly attractive--stranger. It doesn't matter who he is, because she is certain that he's a gift from above. . .one she means to keep.

When his memory returns, Charles Rycroft, an art collector from one of Boston's oldest and wealthiest families, is astounded to learn that he's a married man--and that his lovely Irish wife is one of Boston's serving class. Intending only to give Maeve a bit of polish before ending their hasty union, Charles's primary concern is finding the valuable sketch of St. Nicholas that was stolen when he was assaulted. Yet Maeve's presence in his home is a dazzling ray of light, and as Christmas nears, he suspects her love may be his greatest joy.

Fern Michaels, who is originally known as Mary Ruth Kuczkir, grew up in Hasting, Pennsylvania, and is fondly known by family and friends as Dink. After her last child entered school, her husband forced her to get a job, when all Michaels knew was motherhood. Instead of approaching the world with no skills, she turned her love of reading into a career and began to write books. After four years of partnering with Ballantine Books in the production of her books, she left her agent, sold her home in New Jersey and moved to South Carolina, where she has remodeled a 300 hundred year old plantation house. Michaels books consist of scrappy heroines, much as she herself was, and the perserverance of the female soul. She considers her true day of prevailance, the epitome of her perseverance, to be the day she was inducted into the New Jersey Literary Hall of Fame. In order to give back some of what she's received, Michaels has set up The Fern Michaels Foundation which allows grants of four year scholarships to needy students. She has also opened affordable pre-school and day care centers for single moms in financial distress. Michaels does not consider herself a writer, merely a good story teller, who has written sixty seven books, most of which appear on the New York Times Best Sellers List, such as Breaking News in 2012 and What You Wish For in 2013.
