    A very sexy and heartwarming read!

    Just as I've come to always expect with Leah's writing, she has written a great emotional, sexy, and heartwarming story. Megan and Ryan have been together since college, but as she followed her dreams to become a Mountie, he had to stay and take care of his siblings after his parents died. This Christmas they are both determined to get what they want, and they are willing to make great sacrifices to make that happen. For Megan she is willing to give up one dream for a bigger one, and Ryan is willing to uproot his entire life just to be with her. Problem is that neither one has told the other about their plans. The chemistry between these two is very steamy, and Ryan's artistic inspirations in the bedroom make this novella one Red Hot Holiday read! But aside from that it is a very sweet and romantic read that leaves the reader with a smile. I highly recommend you read this!

    I will start off by saying that Leah is one of my favorite autho

    I will start off by saying that Leah is one of my favorite authors so anything she releases I will read.

    This was a wonderful story about enduring love,overcoming obstacles and true devotion. Ryan Porter did something that so
     many wouldn't do today, he gave up his own life in order to devote himself to caring for his siblings after the tragedy of losing
    their parents. He put himself second and put everyone else first, you just don't see that very often and it's so nice to read about it.
    This story touches so many places in my heart that it might just become my favorite of all of hers.
     And the steam is HIGH HIGH HIGH in this one. I knew what to expect having read so much of Leah's work but I was still surprised
    and the level of dominance shown by this sensitive artist. I think the unexpectedness of it made it even steamier.

    I would recommend this to anyone that wants a good love story, a lot of steam and just a good book to warm
    you up on those cold winter nights.

    LOVED this short; so many things made me want this story to cont

    LOVED this short; so many things made me want this story to continue. As I've come to expect, Leah can truly illustrate scenes to the point of actually feeling as if I'm there and witnessing the story unfold. The scene at the lake was one that will forever be imprinted on my mind. The drama, the stress, the emotions for all involved in that scene were so real. I felt that Meg and Ryan were well communicated as individuals and a couple; and I can understand the need for the hot scenes after being away from each other for so long. The marble and swing scene-- all that needs said lol. The family (especially the brothers) had me laughing; Christmas morning especially. And my favorite gift was the last one that Ryan gave was a sweet moment and a wonderful way to end the story.

    I love these characters

    You can feel the love Ryan and Megan have for each other.

    Quick setup, Ryan and Megan met when Ryan’s brother Derek started dating Megan’s college roommate Amy. Ryan and Megan pretty much had their life together planned out until a horrible car accident changed their lives. Ryan’s father and stepmother were killed in a car accident and Ryan at the age of twenty-two, was left to be the guardian of his two brothers and sister. Ryan knows what it’s like to have your dreams taken away from you. He knows Megan’s dream has been and is to be a Mountie, thus he can’t ask her to give that up just to be with him.

    Now seven years later, he’s finally ready and able to live his own life. Remarkably, all of this time, Ryan and Megan were able to keep their love for each other alive, even though they were far apart. Now this Christmas, they each plan on giving the other the best Christmas gift ever, themselves. No more lonely nights. No more a week here or there, when they have the time. How romantic is that? Did I mention neither one has told the other about their plans?
    I really loved both the main characters and most of their supporting cast. This was one of those books where I wasn’t yelling at either the hero or the heroine to get their acts together. Well, maybe I was just a little bit.

    Did I mention that this book was HOT? I know I’ve said this already, but I really loved Ryan and Megan. I love the fact that they are each willing to give up their dream to be with the one person they love the most. What could be better than that?

    Rating: 4 ½ (I really liked it.)
