Home for the holidays… 
Or home for good? 
Once upon a time, Ben Cooper left his hometown to follow his dreams of becoming a big-city doctor. Now he’s back to run his father’s clinic and spend Christmas with his daughter, not to fall for McKenzie Price, the woman who broke his heart. But when McKenzie steps in to help Ben reconnect with his little girl, and old sparks begin to ignite, will Ben give up city life for a second chance at love? 
From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

“I don’t understand you,” blustered McKenzie. “You asked me to go to college with you in front of the whole band.”

“So?” Ben interrupted.

“It took a lot of nerve. You opened yourself up to rejection, jeers.”

“And you rejected me,” he blurted. There was no bitterness in his tone, no blame, but McKenzie wondered if she heard something else—a morsel of lingering regret—the same regret that’d been suffocating her since he’d come back to town.

They stared at one another, and his eyes became dark and deep. There were red highlights in his lashes, and it took McKenzie back to the flashing tangerine-brown hair of his childhood. It’d been a beautiful earthy shade that reminded her of red-gold summer sunsets. His colors, inside and out, made her happy. Made her smile. Like the Cardinal flowers that grew along the summer road sides, he’d flowered into a striking specimen, quiet but rugged with wider shoulders, a thicker throat, and a neckline that made her want to brush her fingers along its outline. This made her happy, too, and strangely achy. She swallowed and looked away.

“It was my fault, Ben,” McKenzie whispered. “I was scared. You were my best friend, and I didn’t want to lose that.
