Can one man’s crowded, messy life fill another man’s empty heart?

Raising a family was always Adam Mills’ dream, although solo parenting and moving back to tiny Garnet Run certainly were not. After a messy breakup, Adam is doing his best to give his young daughter the life she deserves—including accepting help from their new, reclusive neighbor to fulfill her Christmas wish.

Though the little house may not have “the most lights ever,” the Mills home begins to brighten as handsome Wes Mobray spends more time there and slowly sheds his protective layers. But when the eye-catching house ends up in the news, Wes has to make a choice: hide from the darkness of his unusual past or embrace the light of a future—and a family—with Adam.


A delightful holiday romance filled with life lessons and happily ever afters! I was thrilled to dive in to the first ever gay romance from Harlequin’s Special Edition line and Roan Parrish did NOT disappoint! With a precocious 8 year old leading the charge, the characters of Knockbridge Lane bring a fulfilling storyline to life with adorable interactions, emotional revelations and an overall awe inspiring sweetness between this child, her father and the man they both are falling for. There’s a tad more heat here than this line generally puts out, but I highly enjoyed Adam, Wes and sweet lil’ Gus!

Adam is a sweetheart. He’s a gentle soul with his heart on his sleeve who feels thing deeply and loves hard. I adored the father that he was to Gus.

Wes was an unexpected surprise. He comes across as standoffish, but in reality he’s misunderstood and protecting his heart. I loved seeing the joy that true love opened up for him.

August AKA Gus is the type of person everyone should strive to be. She’s energetic, hungry for knowledge and she embraces “different” wholeheartedly and with open arms. She’s a joy to read.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an emotional backstory as these two guys use the magic of the holiday season to fall hard for each other.
