The dream she wants

The love she found

Lauren Shepherd has traded her hectic office job for a quiet life working on an elderly friend’s farm. Risking everything to move to Alaska might just be the perfect opportunity for her—if Lauren can convince handsome and fiercely protective Patrick O’Shea that she’s not swindling his grandmother. But when financial troubles threaten her dream, Lauren and Patrick unite in a hunt for a legendary treasure…only to discover something between them more precious than gold.

Spritz dragged her leg back and forth across the straw and gave a sound that was halfway between a bleat and a human groan. A blob appeared. “It’s coming,” Lauren whispered. Several groans later, the blob slid onto the straw, wiggled, and a miniature hoof tore the sac away, exposing a tiny black-and-white goat. It was like a magic trick.
Spritz curled her neck around to sniff the baby, and then gave it a good lick across the nose, like any mom washing her kid’s face. Gran handed Lauren a towel. “If it doesn’t upset her to have you nearby, you can help her dry the kid.”
Lauren stepped inside the stall. She stroked Spritz’s neck and then slipped over and wrapped the towel around the new baby goat, all the while murmuring about what a good mother Spritz was. If Patrick didn’t know better, he’d assume Lauren had done this dozens of times before.
Spritz seemed to welcome the assistance. In fact, Patrick could have sworn she was basking in the compliments about her mothering abilities and her new baby’s beauty.
“It’s a girl,” Lauren announced, holding up the white goat with dark speckles. “What shall we name her?”
“Are you sticking with the pastries theme?” Gran asked.
“Why not? Chocolate Chip Cookie?”
“Chip for short,” Patrick declared.
One of the goats in the pen bleated, presumably in approval. Spritz lurched to her feet and came to lick the baby in Lauren’s lap. A few minutes later, she began groaning again. Before the day’s official end, Chip, Pizzelle and Snickerdoodle crowded under their mother, enjoying their first meal.
“Congratulations,” Gran told Lauren. “You’ve just doubled the size of your herd.”
Lauren laughed. “I guess so.” Covered with dirt and grime, Lauren brushed a strand of hair back from her cheek, leaving behind a smear of something Patrick chose not to identify, but a proud smile lit up her face, and her green eyes sparkled. “They look good, don’t they?”
“Beautiful,” Patrick agreed. “Absolutely beautiful.”
