This Excerpt from The Billionaire’s Christmas Contract Will Pull You In
Leah Rendell parked her parents’ van filled with four teenage boys in front of the Mardale, Colorado, secondhand store. On this Friday after Thanksgiving Day, she should’ve been overjoyed to start preparing for the Christmas season. Instead, she felt numb inside.
She gripped the steering wheel and took a deep breath. She wouldn’t let her broken engagement spoil the holiday celebrations.
“Hey, guys, let’s do some shopping, and remember, we’re buying clothes you can wear to church.” Forcing a smile, Leah looked over the back of her seat into the dark eyes of the foster boys her parents were raising on their ranch. Taking the boys shopping was the distraction she needed from the last few months when she juggled wedding planner appointments with the English literature classes she taught at an east coast college.
Those wedding plans crumbled to dust that last day of class when she walked into her fiancé’s law office and realized Charlie was doing more than preparing court cases with his assistant.
Shell-shocked, wounded, and unable to speak, Leah could only stare at the blanching couple. Then she did the only thing she had the strength to do―she pulled off her engagement ring, set it on Charlie’s bookcase and stepped into the paneled hallway.
Now Leah sat in the van and swallowed the emotion welling in her throat. The boys shifted in their seats and stared out the van’s windows, clearly eager to stretch their legs and explore a town smaller than their inner-city neighborhoods.
Except Zeke. The distrust in the eyes of the boy who had arrived at the Rendell Ranch for Boys last night showed he was plotting his escape to the Denver neighborhood he’d called home until his mother disappeared.
“We’re going into Tara’s shop,” Leah said, her voice steadier than she felt. “You can pick out a shirt, a pair of pants, and a pair of shoes, then we’ll head over to Danielle’s bakeshop for a treat. Deal?” She pressed the button that opened the van’s doors.
Frankie, Harry, and Carl cheered and tumbled out of the van.
“Yippee,” Zeke said, his voice flat. He stepped out of the van and into a puddle.
Water sprayed back into the van, over the curb and against a powerfully built man striding down the sidewalk, a cell phone pressed to his ear. The man froze, his gaze dropping to the pants and tweed jacket now dripping with muddy water.
Be safe and blessed!
