Overview

Nicky Paxton is up to her pointed elf ears in work--filling in for a sick Santa's helper, corralling kittens in a mechanical winter wonderland and running her family's department store chain. With only 14 shopping days until Christmas, the last thing she needs is the return of her high school heart-breaker.

Lawyer and single dad Chris Spencer leaves the Los Angeles rat race to raise his five-year-old daughter, Holly, in his sleepy Virginia hometown. His first goal is to make sure Holly has a Christmas to remember. His carefully laid plans don't include a second chance with his first love.

When Holly asks the store Santa for a "fairy pony puppy", Chris enlists Nicky's help to track down the elusive item. Despite Nicky's resolve not to re-gift her heart to Chris, their sexual attraction could power the town's holiday light display. With the help of mistletoe, a hairless dog and a lonely child, Chris and Nicky just might get their Christmas desires.

Editorial Reviews

The Romance Reviews - Jenn Shanks Pray
"Park this girl under the mistletoe and sign her up for elf duty. Marcia James' HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS serves up a dish of romance and second chances with panache! Full of sass and fun, this holiday heart-warmer guarantees heat like flannel sheets on a cold winter night."
Dear Author - Jayne n/a
I enjoy a good 'second chance at romance' story and the blurb, which mentioned the heroine standing in as an elf and later corralling kittens, sounded cute so I gave "Heating Up the Holidays" [novella] a shot. Mrs. Giggles 83 grade review didn't hurt either. You manage to suck me into Chris and Nicky's budding reromance... The writing is good, it's got humorous moments...it's a great little holiday truffle.
Mrs. Giggles' blog - Mrs. Giggles
"Heating Up the Holidays is a very pleasant and readable story...a fine read..."
