Nurse Shelly Westbrook has returned home to Marietta hoping to give her son and niece a Christmas holiday to reboot a disappointing year. Christmas is magic and Marietta is the perfect place for them all to start over. 

Dr. Peter Davidson has never indulged in the Christmas spirit, but he thinks he’s hallucinating when he reaches the city limits and sees a sleigh driven by a white bearded man in a red suit. The minor collision is inevitable, as is his slight concussion. His obsession with the beautiful angel of a nurse who stops to render aid is unexpected, but just what the doctor ordered. 

Can two people nursing broken hearts find love in a quiet mountain town that has always promised new beginnings?

Just about anything can happen in Marietta, Montana, and usually does… especially around Christmas time.  So a car vs Santa’s sleigh?  Not beyond the realm of possibilities in this town!

Dr. Peter Davidson is heading to Marietta to visit with his sister Lucy (Resisting the Doctor), and brother Edmund (Challenging the Doctor) with his newly discovered twins for the Christmas season.  His life has turned upside down, and all he’s looking for is to get to his family and figure out what happens next.  The last thing he expected was to actually run into a Christmas sleigh driven by a man in red or the lovely angel who tended to him right after the wreck.  Both will play a large part in his life from this moment on.

Shelly came home to Marietta hoping to find some of that famous Christmas magic for herself, her son and her niece.  It’s been… well, it’s been quite a year, one she’ll be glad to see the back end of that’s for sure.  Probably the last thing she expected was to come upon a wreck between Santa’s sleigh and a car involving one handsome man with an obvious concussion and two children.  She also probably couldn’t have imagined that she’d just met her future… but she’s back home in Marietta so she should have known better.  *wink*

If you’re looking for a fun, sizzling, family loving, magical Christmas story, and happen to love anything Marietta, Montana — then Doctor for Christmas is perfect for your holiday reading list.  Shelly and Peter each have very good reasons for not risking their hearts ever again.  Yet one accident, one small town with a track record of happy ever afters and the magic of Christmas are about to change lives once again.  I had fun with this story, enjoyed catching up with old friends as well.  If you love a good romance, interesting characters, have a Marietta Montana obsession or simply love a good Christmas Romance… then you’ll want to pick up Doctor for Christmas this season.  Indulge yourself and enjoy.
