Centuries ago, by a scaffold in Manhattan, rose petals drifted gently to the ground like snow on a wintry Massachusetts night. Melody Tarleton is driving home for Christmas when a man - clad in Revolutionary War-era costume - appears out of nowhere, right in the path of her car. Shaken, she takes the injured stranger in, listening with concern to Jake Mallory's fantastic claim that he's a Patriot soldier, sentenced to death by British authorities. The last thing he remembers is the tug of the noose.
Safe at her parents' house, Melody concocts a story to explain the handsome holiday guest with the courtly manners, strange clothes, and nasty bump on the head. Mark, her close friend who wishes he were more, is skeptical and her family is fascinated - though not half so fascinated as Melody herself. Jake is passionate, charming and utterly unlike anyone she's ever met. Can he really be who he claims? And can a man from the distant past be the future she truly longs for?
With the aid of enchanted petals, ancient potions and the peculiar magic of the season, Melody and Jake embark on an unimaginable Christmas adventure - and discover a love that transcends time.

"A Mom Everyone Wants"
This is my last book from this author. This is a 6 hr book that is going around in circles and I am determined to finish it, but can barely make it. Good outline and great sentiments, but lacked the descriptive drama in this romance. Nora Roberts can write a story with recording time of 2 hr + mins and it is so much better. Ms Roberts uses very descriptive phases, that can be in the "Ernest Hemingway" style, brief but powerful.
I purchased this author due to Ms Dawe recording it. I love Ms Dawe, but even she could not save this book. I am going to finish this book as I love her male voices. She brings the father character to real life!
I have purchased a few of this author's works and all lacked the punch to make them an irresistible romance. She may need a better editor who will tell her what is needed.
