Harlequin Holiday Spotlight…Love Lessons Learned with Allison Leigh, author of A Child Under His Tree



By New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

Allison Leigh 

‘Tis the season for second chances…and secrets!

Forget the mistletoe maneuvers. Kelly Rasmussen isn’t planning on having that reunion kiss with Dr. Caleb Buchanan any time soon. Things had long ago gone south for these former high school sweethearts. Except for that one night six years ago—which resulted in an explosive secret Kelly’s kept till this very day.

Now career and family have brought them both back to Weaver, Wyoming. Their unavoidable clashes—and instant chemistry—make them realize this town isn’t big enough for the two of them. Or three of them—counting Kelly’s son. Because there’s something about that little boy… For one thing, he has Caleb’s eyes…

Love Lessons Learned: Real life romance lessons learned from the book.

I think the most important lesson to take from Kelly and Caleb’s relationship is that love isn’t some perfect, ribbon-wrapped gift that is bestowed on people with no expectation of challenge or work.  Love, like anything worth having, takes work.  It takes tending.  Kelly and Caleb had to get to a point where they could accept their own responsibilities in the things that went wrong in the past as well as each other’s, forgive the hurts–and let them go—so they could embrace all the good that was—and could be—between them.


allison-leighALLISON LEIGH’S high point as a writer is hearing from readers that they laughed, cried or lost sleep while reading her books. She makes her home in Arizona where she’s blessed with an immensely patient family who doesn’t mind (much) her time spent at her computer and who gives her the kind of love she wants her readers to share in every page.
