From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her With Me In Seattle series…

Reed Taylor doesn’t pay much attention to the holidays—until he receives a surprise present. Four-year-old Piper is the daughter he never knew about, and with the death of her mother, is also now the roommate he never expected. He’s determined to make their first Christmas together one she’ll never forget.

Noel Thompson has gotten her share of strange requests in her career as an interior designer. The call to design a beautiful home for Christmas is more like a dream come true. And that was before she met her new employer—sexy and mysterious, he’s everything she ever hoped Santa would bring her.

As Noel showers his home with holiday spirit, Reed showers Piper with love. And the busy life he’s created for himself no longer seems nearly as important as the one Noel is helping him build with his daughter. But if he can’t convince his decorator to stay, this could be the only year he feels the true wonder of the season.


I usually take my phone into the bathroom with me so I can listen to podcasts while I bathe, and this time is no different. I’ve just started my favorite show, My Favorite Murder, which never fails to both creep me out and make me laugh when another text comes through.
Reed: We’re at my condo in the city, having pizza for dinner. You should join us.
I smile at the mental image of the two of them eating pizza with the skyline in the background. I have no idea what Reed’s condo looks like, or even where it is for sure, but I like the image in my mind.
Me: Thanks for the invitation. I’m in the shower, so I think I’m in for the night. I hope you enjoy your dinner!
Several minutes pass. The hosts of my podcast talk about a serial killer in Hawaii as I lather up my hair and then rinse it. Finally, when I’ve finished with the shower and I’m drying off, another text comes through from Reed.
Reed: It’s not fair to tell me you’re in the shower when I’m hanging out with my four-year-old daughter. 
I laugh and snap a photo of myself in my towel and send it off to him. Yes, I’m flirting with a client. No, I don’t have time for him.
Yes, this could get messy. I’m well aware of the what-ifs and how it could all go wrong.
But you know what? I don’t care. I’m not usually a risk-taker. I always follow the rules.
But something tells me Reed’s worth it. And you only live once, right?
