Twelve Days by Teresa Hill
The first contemporary romance in the series readers describe as "unforgettable."
TWELVE DAYS (The McRaes - Books 1, Sam & Rachel)
Twelve Days before Christmas, Rachel McRae opens her front door and a social worker puts a baby in her arms, one abandoned along with her four-year-old brother and eleven-year-old sister, all in need of a temporary home.
Rachel and her husband, Sam, have dreamed of a home filled with children -- but their efforts to have a family have led to repeated heartbreak.
Sam McRae loves his wife. Devastated at how unhappy she is and unable to fix it, he’s decided the only thing left to do is leave her — right after Christmas — and hope she can find happiness with someone else.
Neither of them expected to find their home suddenly full of children, to be living the life they always imagined. But they’ve been warned not to fall in love with these children. No one knows where their mother is. No one knows if or when she’ll be back.
Sam and Rachel promise to try to give the children a happy small-town Christmas. Despite it being a season of miracles, they try not to get their hopes up that these children will stay, and that their marriage will get a second chance.
