STORY: ‘We’ll Be Home for Christmas’ by HelenKay Dimon
No man likes having his bedroom skills described as forgettable, but that’s just what Lila Payne does when she runs into Spencer Thomas again. When she discovers that he’d lied about his name during their brief three-day romp a few months before, she’s so angry that she pretends she doesn’t remember him.
Spence regrets his deception, but not as much as he regrets that their time together didn’t last longer. When she shows up in his town, looking to revitalize her uncle’s mountain resort, Spence is determined to help. Maybe rescuing Lila from a hopeless renovation project will get him in her good graces—and back in her bed.
Lila has no interest in being rescued, and Spence is insulted by her stubborn rebuffs and her “faulty” memory. But when rehab work turns into an after-hours meeting, the two of them are in for a night that just might prove unforgettable…
REVIEW: ‘We’ll Be Home for Christmas’ by HelenKay Dimon
Since I have never read the other books in this series, and never read this author either, I surprisingly found the story easy to follow. The hero was Beta all the way and I found his nerdiness cute, funny and entertaining while the heroine was a total opposite of the hero and I found her very endearing and sharp.
Together they made this an entertaining, sexy and fun story that was too short, yet cute!
STORY: ‘The Best Thing’ by Jaci Burton
A year ago, Tori let her guard down and Brody Kent slipped right in, planting one hot, unforgettable kiss on her in a dark corner at the company Christmas party. Though the kiss surpassed her wildest dreams, she can’t let it happen again. She loves Brody, but he’s got a reputation for loving and leaving. She’ll have to keep her heart—and her libido—in check.
Brody can’t get the time of day from Tori—ever since that impulsive kiss, she’s avoided him with the same brutal efficiency she uses to manage his family’s construction company office. The company can’t afford to lose her, and Brody’s come to realize that he can’t live without her. But how can he convince Tori that he’s a changed man?
It just might take a Christmas miracle.
REVIEW: ‘The Best Thing’ by Jaci Burton
This is another novella that is a part of the series and I found it also easy to follow without reading the earlier books.
The story was cute and fun and now I am in love with this whole family, so I need to stock up on the rest of the books with them.
Hero is an Alpha and too sexy for his own good, while the heroine is smart, sexy and too sharp. Together they make up for a sweet and sensual love story that will keep you up.
STORY: ‘Ask Her at Christmas’ by Christi Barth
Caitlin McIntyre’s heart stops when her best friend drops to one knee and proposes. Kyle Lockhart never once hinted over the years that he has any idea she’s in love with him. Not wanting to jeopardize their friendship, she’s never let it slip. Good thing, too, since it turns out he’s only practicing—he’s about to propose to someone else.
A business merger might not be the most romantic reason to propose to a woman he barely knows, but Kyle’s determined to win the respect of the dying father who’s never seen him as quite good enough. Kyle’s always depended on Caitlin’s friendship, while trying to ignore the physical response she arouses. So he turns to her when it comes time to craft his proposal, not realizing his decision will affect their relationship, forever.
This Christmas, Kyle and Caitlin get one last chance to admit their feelings for each other, and find a mutual happily ever after, before he commits his life to another woman and Caitlin leaves town and him…for good.
REVIEW: ‘Ask Her at Christmas’ by Christi Barth
It was short, well written and cute. Some of you may think the hero a bit off because of being ‘under’ his father’s influence, but I found it very plausible.
All of the stories can be found in ‘Romancing the Holiday’ Anthology and recommend them all. These authors are new to me but I now can say that all three have piqued my interest in their work and I’ll be sure to get their future work and stock up on the series they’ve already written.
