BLURB

 

Fromย New York Timesย bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward comes a love story about taking chances and the surprises that come with them.
ย 
My love story all started with a letter.
ย 
Only it wasnโ€™t from the man Iโ€™d eventually fall in love with. It was from his daughter. A sweet little girl named Birdie Maxwell whoโ€™d written to the magazine that I worked for.
ย 
You see, once a year my employer fulfilled a few wishes for readers. Only that column didnโ€™t start up again for months.
ย 
So I fulfilled some of her wishes myself. It was harmlessโ€ฆso I thought. Until one day I took things too far.
ย 
While anonymously granting yet another of Birdieโ€™s wishes, I got a look at her father.ย Her devastatingly handsome, single dad father.
ย 
I should have stopped playing fairy godmother then. I should have left well enough alone. But I just couldnโ€™t help myself. I had a connection to this girl. One that had me acting irrationally.
ย 
Like when I showed up on their doorstep.

EXCERPT

Copyright ยฉ 2019 by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward
ย 
โ€œI cannot believe we are doing this.โ€ Devin and I took the C train to Columbus Circle and stopped at Starbucks before walking over to the carousel. My partner in crime came dressed for surveillance, wearing head-to-toe black, dark sun- glasses, and a wool cap . . . in July. We were lucky it was New York or she might look like the weirdo she is. I, on the other hand, had on jeans and an Aerosmith T-shirt. Because . . . you know . . . Steven Tyler and those lips. I didnโ€™t even care he was probably pushing seventy. Iโ€™d still suck on those babies.
We took a seat on a bench located to the right of the carouselโ€”not directly in front of it but where we could still see everyone who walked in and out. As we got into position, I started to feel really bad about what we were about to doโ€”invade little Birdieโ€™s privacy.
โ€œMaybe we shouldnโ€™t do this.โ€
Devin put her hand on my shoulder and applied pressureโ€”just in case I tried to get up. โ€œWeโ€™re doing this. Donโ€™t even try to make a run for it.โ€
I slouched back onto the bench. โ€œFine.โ€
We sat for the better part of an hour, sipping coffee, gossiping about work, and looking around for a little girl and her dad. When I caught the time on my phone, I said, โ€œItโ€™s after eleven. I donโ€™t think theyโ€™re coming.โ€
โ€œLetโ€™s give it until eleven thirty.โ€
I rolled my eyes. But screw it, we were in this farโ€”I might as well go along with the rest of the ride. Otherwise, Devin would never let me hear the end of it. At eleven thirty on the dot, I stood. โ€œLetโ€™s go, Lacey.โ€
โ€œWho?โ€
โ€œCagney & Lacey. It was a show my mom used to watch when I was little. It had two women detectives.โ€
โ€œWell, which one was hotter? Maybe I donโ€™t want to be Lacey.โ€
I laughed. โ€œYou can be whichever one you want to be.โ€
I turned to throw out my coffee cup in the basket next to the bench and was just about to start to leave when I spotted a little girl and a man who had just turned into the entrance of the park. They were pretty far off, but I thought it could be Birdie. โ€œOh my God. Sit! Sit! I think thatโ€™s them.โ€
The two of us planted our asses back on the bench at the same exact time. Devin leaned forward and squinted. โ€œAre you sure?โ€
I grabbed her arm and pulled her to sit back. โ€œDonโ€™t be so obvious.โ€
We watched, while completely failing at looking casual, as the man and the little girl moved closer. The man was tall, broad-shouldered, and had on a pair of jeans and a T-shirt. He was holding the hand of the little girl. And she had on . . . a bodysuit and tutu. It was definitely Birdie!
โ€œOh my God. Itโ€™s them!โ€
Neither of us said a word as the father and daughter approached the carousel. When they got close enough so I could finally see their faces, I gasped. โ€œOh my God. Heโ€™s . . .โ€
Devin grabbed my hand. โ€œI call dibs. I want to have his babies.โ€
I couldnโ€™t believe my eyes. While I was expecting a modern version of my dad twenty years ago, the man standing before me was anything but. For the record, my dad is awesome, and heโ€™s not too shabby-looking. But this man . . . was . . . drop. Dead. Gorgeous. Wow. Just . . . yeah. Wow.
Sebastian Maxwell had dark hair, bone structure to die for, and full, beautiful lips. Iโ€™d joked how Devin thought the guy was a super- model, but this man could actually be a supermodel. He had that longish, messy hairโ€”the kind that he could drag a hand through, and it would look like heโ€™d been both thoroughly fucked and just finished a photo shoot. Yeah, that was him. I was absolutely, positively speechless.
