Looking for Christmas magic, romance and sparkle? Then stop right here as ‘Moonlight over Manhattan’ offers all of this and more. Dog walker and exceedingly shy Harriett challenges herself to face her fears, and finds herself in more than one sticky situation during the month of December. Dr Ethan Black agrees to look after exuberant Madi the dog, but he's taken on so much more than he bargained for. Sarah Morgan knows how to capture your heart, and I do love her stories that are brimming with friendship and romance. Characters from previous books step in and out of the pages, and potential new ones are introduced. ‘Moonlight over Manhattan’ gathers you into a warm hug and invites you to settle down, make yourself comfy, and step into its delightfully warm and engaging pages. ~ Liz Robinson
A message from Sarah Morgan
One of my favorite quotes (and I’ve used it in the front of this book) is from Eleanor Roosevelt, who said ‘do one thing every day that scares you’. That quote is perfect for the heroine of this story. Harriet is a twin, and she is the shy twin. Life wasn’t easy for her growing up and now her confident twin sister has moved out of their apartment, she is forced to make a new life for herself. And it’s hard. She knows she has to push herself out of her comfort zone, and so resolves to do one thing every day that challenges her.
Like most people, Harriet is a mixture of strength and vulnerability and I loved watching her grow in confidence and find her own path.
As some of you know, I wrote a number of medical romances before writing longer books, and I still can’t resist a sexy doctor. So my hero in this story, Dr. Ethan Black, works in the emergency department (as I did, many years ago before I changed careers and started writing stories while wearing my pajamas.) He is my favorite type of hero – strong, kind, smart and patient. I don’t blame Harriet for falling in love with him (I hope you do too!), but in the end loving Ethan becomes her greatest challenge of all.
This is a story about pushing the boundaries. It’s about courage, friendship and of course romance, all against the snowy, sparkly backdrop of New York City.
I hope you love it.
She'll risk everything for her own Christmas miracle... Determined to conquer a lifetime of shyness, Harriet Knight challenges herself to do one thing a day in December that scares her, including celebrating Christmas without her family. But when dog-walker Harriet meets her newest client, exuberant spaniel Madi, she adds an extra challenge to her list - dealing with Madi's temporary dog-sitter, gruff doctor Ethan Black, and their very unexpected chemistry. Ethan thought he was used to chaos, until he met Madi - how can one tiny dog cause such mayhem? To Ethan, the solution is simple - he will pay Harriet to share his New York apartment and provide 24-hour care. But there's nothing simple about how Harriet makes him feel. Ethan's kisses make Harriet shine brighter than the stars over moonlit Manhattan. But when his dog-sitting duties are over, and Harriet returns to her own home, will she dare to take the biggest challenge of all - letting Ethan know he has her heart for life, not just for Christmas?
