    A Charming Holiday Tale!

    What a wonderful holiday romance! I am glad that I read this.

    The plot had romance galore, a few bumps in the road to the HEA, a girl and guy that you can't help but want to get together, and of course, some Christmas spirit! :D

    I would gladly recommend this book to all romance readers, especially those looking for a holiday read.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly loved it. I didn't put it down until I was finished.

    I can't wait to read the next book in this series!

    Sexy, well written, passionate, romantic, with a few twists and turns thrown in to the make it interesting, is the best way to describe Ms. Gail's book. Beth despite her strong facade has her vulnerable side and insecurites we can relate to. Plus, she is harboring a secret. What more can we ask for? Except maybe a handsome, confident hunk, with a few flaws of his own to show her that love is possible if you are willing to take a chance. Nick fits the bill perfectly.

    The book is well crafted, sensual, has engaging characters, and keeps the reader entertained from start to finish.

    A book suited for the holidays, but it can be read and enjoyed at any time of the year.

    Kudos Ms. Gail. Looking forward to more from this tallented author. BJ. Scott author of Highland Legacy and Highland Quest

    For twenty-nine year old Beth Sergeant, growing up in a middle c

    For twenty-nine year old Beth Sergeant, growing up in a middle class Nashville family and attending a wealthy private school, had left her feeling like she never really knew where she truly fit in. And now with the success of her new five star salon and spa, La Bella Vita, she still doesn't feel like she fits in with Nashville's elite crowd. Beth's track record with men has been dismal. She has only had three serious relationships in the past ten years, each one had left her even more insecure and distrustful of men. She vows to never give anyone the opportunity to judge her worth or make her feel like she didn't measure up. Never again. Plus a closely held secret makes her think that she wouldn't be enough for any man to want to marry her.

    Thirty-four year old building firm owner Nick Chester was born into the wealthiest family in Nashville. Every woman he has dated over the years has wanted something from him: status, money, influence ... but never just him.

    When Nick enters Beth's salon and spa, a spark of attraction is ignited between them ... but is it enough to blossom into some passionate Winter's Magic when a scheming ex-boyfriend and ex-girlfriend, Nick's past and Beth's secret threaten their fledgling relationship? Or will the magical time of the season bring them everlasting love?

    Winter's Magic is a feel good romance story about love at first sight and believing that true love really does conquer all. In her debut novel, author Cynthia Gail weaves a sensuous and passionate tale of romance between a man and woman during the magical Christmas season. Written in the third person narrative and set in the heart of Music City, the reader is transported to scenic Nashville to follow Beth and Nick's story of falling in love. Winter's Magic has a delightful mixture of sexual chemistry, sensuous love scenes, and passionate romance; personal issues; drama and scheming exes that will keep the reader engaged and turning the pages.

    With a realistic cast of characters; engaging dialogues and sassy interactions; and a richly detailed description of the glittering holiday setting and sensuous romantic scenes; Winter's Magic is a wonderful romantic story that will simply touch your heart. It is a story that beautifully expresses the sentiment that love really is the greatest gift of all!

    Winter's Magic is the first book in the Music City Hearts series.

    "No more dates with men where the anticipation doesn't exce

    "No more dates with men where the anticipation doesn't exceed an evening with chocolate."
    Now having that sentence within the first page is a way to make any woman keep reading your book....way to go Cynthia!!!!!!

    So, how do you love and hate a book .....just read this one....wholly boogers!!
    At times you just know that Lauren and her minions are totally up to something and you just want to scream....then the other times you like "oh how sweet"
    The main characters are so sweet...not the spoiled rich kids that you would plan on them being....aka LAUREN (Can you tell-I Don't Like Her?!?!?)

    The story is full of bumps that our sweet,chocolate loving, but insecure Beth must over come to reach the love of her life.
    As our hunk Nick, finds out exes are a real pain in the butt!!!! is worth all the hassles and in this story the best present did come in the stocking :0)

    Curl up next to the fire with some chocolate of your own and start reading this book for sure!!!
