THE CHRISTMAS MARRIAGE MISSION
Mitchell Grey is determined to lead a life free of emotional entanglements, and that includes marriage and children. But when he meets divorced mom Kay Sherwood, that resolution goes out the window. Kay is determined to stay far away from Mitchell, but he's persistent. When a flu bug takes down Kay, her mother and her daughters, Mitchell steps in and finds he enjoys the family life. Helen Brooks' The Christmas Marriage Mission (2) is a cute romance with some very tender scenes. However, its sweet and conservative feel makes it an odd fit for the Presents line. The tale lacked the emotional and physical intensity and larger-than-life heroes for which the line is known.
