Christmas Day delivers
Santa's sweetest surprise!


Emergency room physician Mark Holiday thinks he's seen just about everything life can deliver. That is, until twin baby girls land on his doorstep on Christmas morning. At a loss to explain where these babies came from, Mark's even more perplexed to learn from a pretty social worker that county paperwork lists him as Mary and Bryte's dad. Though he long ago gave up believing in Santa, Mark can't shake the niggling feeling that Old Saint Nick had something to do with this special delivery. Especially since it leads Mark to meeting the woman of his dreams.

Feisty social worker Natalie Church is sick to death of deadbeat dads. She certainly can't believe a guy would deny his own kids at Christmas! But the more Natalie gets to know Mark Holiday, the more she starts to wonder if his story is for real. When the pair becomes stuck at Mark's house during a blustery snowstorm, Natalie and Mark are forced to work together to care for the twins, while trying to solve the mystery of their unexpected arrival. As the holidays unfold, new facts emerge--exposing Mark and Natalie's minds to new possibilities. Will the magic of the season help them open up their hearts as well?


Mark set his mug down on the kitchen counter, thinking the morning paper should have arrived by now. Even though the snow was piling up quickly outdoors, the news carriers in this western North Carolina town were accustomed to making their rounds in all kinds of weather.

Jingle! Jangle!

Mark tilted his head, his ears alerting at the unaccustomed sound. He didn’t think it was his doorbell.

Jingle! Jangle!

There it is again.

Mark cut through the kitchen on long, brisk strides, emerging in the front hall beside the staircase.

Jingle! Jangle! Jingle!

It was the most peculiar noise and it seemed to be coming from right outside the front door. Just as he thought that, Mark spied movement through the front door’s decorative glass pane. The oblong window contained colorful blue, green, and yellow stained glass encased in ornamental gold wire. Yet, on the other side of that, Mark thought he saw… What? Someone in a red and white hat…? A Santa hat?

Mark walked toward the door at a clip and yanked it open.

The moment he did, a shocking cacophony assaulted his ears.

Crying! No, it’s wailing!

Mark stared down at the stoop and blinked.

Two tiny babies were nestled side by side in car seats on his front porch. They were covered with blankets, and small red hats sporting white pom-poms on dangly pointed tips perched on their miniature heads. Their cherubic round faces burned bright red, as the infants called out like a pair of startled seagulls.

Waahhh! Waahhh! Waahhh!

Mark’s heart thudded in his chest. Then it pounded harder.

What on earth is going on?

He scanned the road in front of his house, but there was no sign of tire tracks anywhere. Mark’s gaze traveled back to the screeching infants. Next, he noticed the huge stack of stuff that had been off-loaded beside them. A portable, pack-and-carry furniture contraption of some sort… Hefty canvas bags stuffed with… Mark inched forward and braved a peek. Baby food and formula? And, in another pile next to that… Package after package of disposable diapers. A very large red denim diaper bag decorated with a smiling white snowman leaned against the porch railing. The diaper bag was bedecked with a set of enormous jingle bells attached with sparkly red cord to its shoulder strap.

It suddenly dawned on Mark what was happening.

Nooooo. No way!

Someone had dumped a set of twins on him at Christmas!
