Overview

Twas the night before Christmas
and Noelle wanted so much,
just one burning night
of Mark's kisses and touch.

Wearing nothing but a red bow. That's how social worker Noelle Bradenton wanted to find Chicago cop Mark Santori under her Christmas tree. Delicious Mark could jingle her bells any time, except he was investigating the disappearance of toys from the women's shelter where she worked. And all signs point to the thief being St. Nick himself!

Following a lead, Noelle and Mark set out for a town called Christmas to track down the Santa impersonator. With both of them staying at the Candy Cane Inn, Noelle had visions of naked Mark dancing in her head. And she doubted she'd be able to wait until Christmas morning to find out just what a delectable package Mark was....

Meet the Author

Leslie is a stay-at-home mother of three, who started writing as a creative outlet after one too many games of Chutes & Ladders. After meeting a group of other women with a similar interest in writing, she became part of a critique group and started spinning the story of a sexy radio D.J. That book, the first she ever wrote, was purchased off the slush pile by an editor at Harlequin Temptation.

Night Whispers (Harlequin Temptation #747) earned Leslie the NONA (Notable New Author of 1999) Award from OV-RWA, several Reviewer's Choice Awards, the award for "Best Romantic Suspense of 1999" from Romance Communications, second place in the Short Contemporary category for VCRW's Laurel Wreath Award for Excellence in Published Romance Fiction, and the National Reader's Choice Award for "Best Short Contemporary Romance of 1999."

Leslie's second book, Suite Seduction, was released in December 2000 as part of Harlequin Temptation's popular The Wrong Bed miniseries. It was recently named a finalist in the Colorado RWA's Award of Excellence competition. Her latest Harlequin Temptation, titled Relentless (August 2001) is part of the Heat miniseries.

Leslie is one of the founding members of SpacecoasT Authors of Romance (STAR) in Brevard County, Florida, and served as its first full-term president. She has presented workshops and programs at several writers' conferences and chapter meetings throughout Florida and Georgia, has appeared on television and radio talk show programs, and has judged writing contests from around the country.

Leslie's recent success has not distracted her from her main priorities: her husband of 15 years and her three youngdaughters.

## This book was OK but not as good as I'd hoped. I read 'Overexposed' which is Nick Santori's story and loved it, so I bought this one. Sorry to say I was a tad disappointed. Mark and Noelle's story was cute and I absolutely loved the fact that the hero was not portrayed as a man-slut like so many authors do, but there was so much other unnecessary stuff in there. Too much about Christmas, the hometown and the cousin....etc. Boring. But one thing is for sure, the sex was hot, ergo 3 stars.
