October Kiss

Based on a Hallmark Channel original movie

He's a brilliant businessman,
but there's one thing she can teach him:
how to enjoy the moment.

Poppy’s tried a lot of things. Yoga instruction. Pizza making. So far, none of them have seemed like her thing. Still, she doesn’t have to know where her life is headed to live it with enthusiasm.

Ever since his wife’s death, Ryan’s thrown himself into his work. Launching a successful new app will secure his children’s future…even if it means he can’t spend much time with them now.

As a short-term nanny for Ryan’s children, Poppy brings some much-needed fun and laughter. She’s never been one to commit, so why is she feeling so attached to these children…and even more, to their dad? Could it be she’s found her place at last?

This funny, feel-good romance contains a free Hallmark original recipe for Pumpkin Soup with Parmesan Croutons.
