I slipped out of bed and padded across the hall, stopping in
the doorway. My chest tightened at the sight before me.
Richard, tall, broad, and bare chested, cradling his
daughter close, and dancing with her. She was tucked high on his chest, with his
cheek resting on her head. Her tiny hand was encased inside his, and he held
her protectively. No doubt his humming was soothing to her, rumbling through
his chest and lulling her into peace.
Tears filled my eyes watching them. The cold-hearted man I first
knew was gone and replaced by this protector who would do anything to care for
his child. To care for me.
New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland,
lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved
husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means
more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged
with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking,
and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties,
and also enjoys travelling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always
the best part of any trip.
Melanie delights in a good romance story with some bumps
along the way, but is a true believer in happily ever after. When her head
isn’t buried in a book, it is bent over a keyboard, furiously typing away as
her characters dictate their creative storylines to her, often with a large
glass of wine keeping her company.
