A Short Holiday Story by New York Times Bestselling Author H.M. Ward

There's no such thing as second chances, and Brooke would know. This Christmas will be spent alone and celebrated, same as the last. It doesn't matter that she's a disgruntled mall elf, standing next to a chimney-scented Santa with the most annoying co-worker ever. It doesn't make Christmas more magical. It's just another day to endure, and the holiday can't pass fast enough. That is, until her old flame, Chris, spots her.

After taking a picture with Brooke in her elf costume, things take an unexpected turn. Maybe getting through the night won't be so difficult after all.

This is a Christmas novella. The print edition is 75 paper pages.

Editorial Reviews

GR - Jessica Brown
I loved A Little Christmas romance..I want more..I loved the built up angst between Brooke and Chris.
GR - Melanie Anne
The story has all the ingredients of an H.M. Ward romance: snarky & sarcastic humor, a sexy-as-hell main male character & lots of teasing, steamy moments that leave your heart beating hard.

Another delightful story from HM Ward! With just a few words, the author once again paints a picture for us that we will not soon forget. I loved how these two characters meet after a hiatus of a few years at the mall. This is brilliant! She is dressed as a Sexy Elf helping Santa and he is stopped dead in his tracks during his last minute hunt for presents. You will have to read this story to find out what happens next. Just know, you will laugh, cry and walk away with the Spirit of Christmas!

I was lucky enough to get an ARC copy of this great holiday novella full of love and Christmas cheer. Even though Brooke does not like her job she is really good at it, how she interacts with the children is great, she has a way with them. I love how she describes how Santa smells to a child by saying he was working earlier delivering gifts and he smells like that due to coming down chimneys. I love when Chris pays to have his  picture taken but not with Santa, but with Brooke. I always like the second chance stories, how the girl secretly loved the boy, and years later they get together only to find out he loved her back then too. Her family is rowdy and fun to read about but reading about her mother and how hard it is  for Brooke not having her there for Christmas brought my emotions crashing down. I love how they are joking around, decorating the tree, and  reigniting their feelings at his apartment while it snows outside, so romantic. I feel myself holding my breath when the first kiss happens, waiting  to see if her biggest fear comes true. I love when he picks her up and spins her around and says “That was the best Christmas present I’ve ever  gotten”. It is great reading about her seeing his family after all of this time and her finding out the truth about Chris and what he has been like over these past few years. I was so happy with the ending, it was perfect, I was glad that it didn't end the way most would have, it was still a very HEA ending but more realistic to what would really happen. Once again, great book by H.M. Ward.

Reading one of Holly's books always keeps my emotions on overload. This short story is no different. This book is the sweet sensual that will keep you smiling. It is just a great book that is perfect for the season. You can't help but keep smiling with the back and forth jabs between Brooke and Chris. True moments of laughing out loud. You will want to find some hot cocoa and your sexy guy and reenact that scene! If you are looking for a feel good....feel VERY good read..this is the book. Beside the fact that it is a H.M. Wads book alone should be reason enough, but you will love this book!

Great book. A little different that what I am used to from H.M. Ward but it was definitely about a little Christmas Romance. A good reprieve from the normal sexual angst in her other books. Loved it!

H.M. Ward does it again! I love Brooke and Chris and their reunion is just heart stopping adorable. I was able to feel for the characters and I even cheered them on. Holly you continue to amaze me with your storytelling and I love that this book is a stand alone.
