Christmas is around the corner…
And love might be right next door.
Hope Crossing, Texas, is just what Jillian McKenna needs. Here, she can recover after a terrible attack…and create a home for her baby-to-be. But she also has a complication next door. She once saw a future with veterinarian Gabriel Vaughn—a future that feels impossible now. But with love, faith, a support dog and some Christmas spirit, maybe it’s not too late after all…
From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.
Moving at a more leisurely pace, Jillian approached Gabriel. “What are you working on?”
“Clearing one side of my garage—which pretty much serves as a catchall anyway since neither of my trucks will fit—in case you need space to store some stuff.”
Her vision blurred as tears filled her eyes, spilling onto her cheeks. She quickly turned around, not wanting him to see her. But it was too late.
“Hey, what’s going on?” He was in front of her, his palms cupping her elbows.
“Nothing,” she sobbed, feeling absolutely mortified. “Just stupid pregnancy hormones making me melt down over a random act of kindness.” She swiped at her cheeks. “Ugh. This is so embarrassing.” She sniffed, finally meeting his gaze. “Thank you. That was very sweet of you. Not to mention unexpected.”
“Well, with you getting bigger every day, you’ll need space to move around the house.”
“Wait. Did you just say I was big?”
His expression was priceless. “Uh, no. I probably should’ve phrased that differently. The baby is getting bigger every day. And you’re smiling again.”
“I am.” A chuckle bubbled from her. “Thanks. Now I need to change clothes and see about making some space in the house.”
“Oh, no you don’t.” He picked up the ball Aggie had dropped at his feet. “You can formulate a plan, but I’m in charge of execution. No heavy lifting for you.”
He tossed the ball as she started toward the house. “I’ll stay out here and entertain the Aggster for a while. Don’t forget to take the ground beef out of the freezer. Rest of the stuff’s at my place.” He poked a thumb over his shoulder as Aggie trotted toward him with a ball in her mouth. “May as well leave it there until we need it.”
Pausing on the porch, she glanced back at Gabriel. How many times had she dreamed of him since her assault? Of being held in his strong arms again and him feeling the same way about her as he once had. Picking up where they left off, only with her living in Hope Crossing.
But that was nothing more than a pipe dream. Everything he’d done for her since she’d arrived—going out of his way to make her feel safe, helping her out around the house—that was Gabriel’s modus operandi. When he saw a need, he went to any length to meet it. Meaning she couldn’t allow herself to read anything more into his actions. No matter how much she might want to.
