Blurb: Gentle Fawn longs to give her husband a baby, but when yet another child is stillborn, she begs the Great Spirit to give the love in her husband’s heart to a woman who can give him many sons.

Grieving along with his wife, Hawk Catcher overhears Gentle Fawn’s desperate plea and vows to ease the pain in his beloved's heart.

Through the magic of the season, their prayers are answered by two bumbling trappers... and a goat.

Review: You know, I really enjoy a sweet feel good story anytime of the year but for some reason during the holiday season they just seem to stick with me a bit longer.

This one was filled to the brim with a couples love for each other and their grief over the loss of another child. Ms Scott wove a tale that is just bursting at the seams with magic. I got misty more than once while I was reading. The wonderful way she describes the journey of the trappers, this loving couple and the season miricle was just pure poetry for the eyes. :) Well Done!!!

Blurb: Playing around with ways to let a co-worker know she wants to share more than just the look over the staffroom coffeemaker, a nervous newspaper employee inadvertently sends him a made-up classified ad. Will her colossal mistake put her in next week's gossip column or land her the best deal of her life?

Review: A super-sweet, but refreshingly fun story. I smiled from the cheeky opening to the last flirtatious paragraph. For a buck, this is a sweet and romantic was to spend a couple of minutes. A nice lunch time pick me up.
