This Christmas, she's got her very own St. Nick!

With her business sold and her family out of reach, Abby Hayden's at loose ends.

But if Abby doesn't have enough to occupy her time, Dr. Nick McIntrye has too much. So many people rely on him for help and guidance…. No wonder Abby calls him "St. Nick."

Nick has a proposition for Abby, one he thinks will benefit them both. He persuades her to work at a home he's established for pregnant teens, girls who'll be giving up their babies for adoption.

That's where Abby learns she has a special gift: she knows how to make these girls feel loved and valued, despite their mistakes, despite their fears and lost confidence. And she receives a special gift herself—her very own St. Nick. Not just this Christmas, but for all the Christmases to come!

"Tara Taylor Quinn is, without doubt, one of the rising stars of romance. Watch her shine!"
—Jennifer Blake, author of Kane

The Heart of Christmas is the companion volume to Father Unknown, both books by American author, Tara Taylor Quinn, both of which feature the Hayden sisters. Abby Hayden lives in a beach house in California, alone since Anna, her remaining triplet left for New York after the tragic murder of their sister, Audrey. Abby is distracted enough by her concerns (did she drive Anna away? Will Anna recover her memory? Who is the father of Anna’s baby?) that she is only vaguely aware of being followed, until she is attacked in the street. Her rescuer is Dr Nick McIntyre, a man whose career of charitable deeds seems too good to be true. Nick needs a new housemother for his halfway house for pregnant teens. He asks Abby, although he’s not sure it’s a good idea: he’d much too attracted to her and he doesn’t have time for relationships. This romance has a charming hero, a heroine who seems determined to overthink everything (making the novel quite a bit longer than necessary), and a touch of intrigue that is solved just a bit too quickly and conveniently at the end. It can be read as a stand-alone, but readers planning to read Father Unknown should do that first to avoid spoilers. A sweet romance that would have benefitted from some judicious editing.

This is one of the most wonderful books I've ever read. I felt Abby's pain.She's strong, independent but vunerable.I couldn't put this book down.
