When Renee McClendon was a teenager, she made a list of all the qualities her perfect man would have, but no matter how many handsome guys have ticked the boxes, she has yet to find the man for her. She wants a regular guy who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty, and she’s given herself a deadline. If she doesn’t find Mr. Right by New Year’s, she’s done searching.

Patrick Dunlap is used to woman looking at him as a lowly chauffeur…until they realize he owns the whole company. All he wants is a woman who’ll want him for who is, and not only see dollar signs. He hits it off with Renee right away, so while they get to know each other, he withholds some small details instead of risking what they’re starting to build.

But when the truth comes out, how forgiving will Renee be?

Each book in the McClendon Holiday series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

“Ms. Young managed to convey a ton of realistic emotion in a classically uncomplicated story. The most gifted of artists are not remembered for the words they say or the things they do but the magic they leave behind. That is how A Husband By New Year's made me feel. Like I was standing in the presence of something special.” –Isha C., Goodreads

“Another installment in the McClendon daughters finding love was thoroughly enjoyable!” –Krystal K., NetGalley

“The story slowly sneaks up on you and by the end you aren’t ready for it to be over. This is a sweet little cute love story.” –Curious Reader, Goodreads

“Definitely a blissful read!” –Elaine B., NetGalley

“At heart, this is a sweetly romantic book about not making judgements based on a first impression, about forgiveness, and about love.  Definitely recommended if you’re looking for something cozy and sweet to curl up with!” –Lauren S., Goodreads

A Husband by New Year's (McClendon Holiday) by Sean D. Young  
The best way to sum up Patrick and Renee is through the words of a familiar melody. The first line of an old Keith Whitley song fits this couple perfectly. I have always loved the tune, When You Say Nothing at All and in the opening verse ...more

This is another story concerning the McClendon family, with the focus of this story being on Renee. The story could easily been entitled 'Don't judge a book by its cover!' because it goes on to show how making assumptions based on first impressions can cause problems when those assumptions are inacc ...more

What a lovely surprise! I’m usually not a fan of romances where one character lies to the other character, but the cover was just so gorgeous and the premise so interesting that I just had to request an ARC to review. And, I’ll readily admit, there were times where I wanted to grab Patrick by the sh ...more

This is a sweet nice romance as another McClendon sibling finds their HEA. The story is well written but the pace was a little slow for my taste. The characters are very well developed and enjoyable. Overall a good read.

About the author

Sean D. Young

Sean began writing romance at the encouragement of her dear friend Christian Fiction Author Jacquelin Thomas. After the release of her first two novels TOTAL BLISS and WITH THIS RING in 2005 & 2006, Sean continued to work diligently at her craft and her next novel. FROM THIS MOMENT, the second installment in the Hearts and Flowers Series, was released in January 2011. At an early age, Sean found that she loved words and tried to read everything she could get her hands on. She joined her first book club “Sweet Pickles” at the age of 7. Writing would come later, when she wrote short stories for her own enjoyment, then she wrote the Easter play for the youth at her church at the age of 12. Sean, a graphic/web designer loves building websites and graphics almost as much as she loves writing her stories. She loves working in her church and lives in Northwest Indiana with her family.
