Hunter Wood wants to be respected. A talented cook, he’s ventured out on his own, opening a breakfast and lunch diner in Charity, Montana. He’s got a lot to prove—mostly to himself—and more than a few people to convince he’s a changed man.
Tracy Blevin is a registered nurse and pie baker extraordinaire, who is drawn to a most unlikely man, Hunter Wood. A nurturer by profession, she likes to feel needed, but the only thing Hunter needs her for is her pies. Their friendship has changed over the last six months as business partners. The more time Hunter spends with Tracy, the more he finds things to like about her. She’s smart, organized, and…those bright green eyes and delicate mouth are really starting to get to him. Maybe it’s time to move beyond just partnership…
When a Montana winter car crash leaves a baby an orphan, Godfather Hunter, lives up to his promise, taking in the ten-month old. With the season of miracles upon them, Hunter can no longer deny his strong attraction towards Tracy. Is her life-long wish for her own family finally being answered this Christmas?

Their Christmas Miracle is a tender Christmas romance that centers very much on second chances in life. When I think of the phrase “second chance” as a reader my first thought is often geared toward romance, two parted lovers reuniting for their happy ending. But that’s not the only way to think of second chances – and this story makes that very clear. Hunter, Tracy and one innocent baby all need second chances in so many areas of life. As basic as survival and as complicated as falling in love – second chances are all around us, we sometimes simply have to look for them.
An accident, a mistake cost Hunter so much that he can never regain. Now he’s only looking for a chance, a second chance to rebuild his life, operate a successful business, gain a decent reputation and keep his head down and tend to his own life. He has a partnership of sorts with Tracy who is a caring urgent care nurse by profession and the baker of sinfully delicious pies by calling. They have a mutually agreeable relationship she bakes tasty pies, he buys them for his hungry for more customers. He has happy customers and a profit, she makes some extra cash. And maybe they get to spend time together for a bit, each wondering if there might be more.
When the unthinkable strikes, and the title most people really only think of as honorary (and pray never, ever has to be taken on) becomes reality Hunter’s life will once again go through major changes – and this time he’s going to need some help.
There is so much to enjoy about Their Christmas Miracle. One precious, infant Godson will bring Hunter and Tracy closer. As a brand new parent, Hunter has no clue about babies, how they work, how to make them be quiet and happy… so he heads to the one person he trusts for help. Tracy. With the help of one adorable baby these three are going to form an unusual family – but one that works based on love, and second chances.
