Overview

The weather outsideis frightful,but kisses by the fireare so delightful . . .

Sue Ann Simpkins is workinghard to rebuild her life andfind some holiday spirit.A weekend away fromDestiny in a cabin on nearby Bear Lake seems like the perfect Christmas gift to herself—until her ex’s best friend, Adam Becker, shows up at the door, claiming the cabin is his! And if that’s not trouble enough, how had she never noticed how gorgeous he was?

Alone for the holidays and forced to play a reindeer at the local department store, Adam’s been feeling rather Scrooge-ish himself. But finding the smart, sexy woman he’s admired since elementary school waiting in the house he rented is helping to brighten his humbug mood. And when a sudden snowstorm strands them together in very close quarters, leading to one very hot night together, Adam soon realizes that what he really wants for Christmas is a second chance at love. Now all he has to do is convince Sue Ann . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Blake’s sugar-sweet fourth Destiny contemporary (after Whisper Falls) piles on the pathos as single parents Adam and Sue Ann shyly explore romance and attraction while coping with custody arrangements and money woes. Sue Ann’s daughter, Sophie, keeps asking for Christmas presents that Sue Ann can’t afford. Adam’s twin boys are spending the holiday with their mother, leaving him woeful and alone. When Adam makes Sophie’s Christmas dreams come true, Sue Ann is deeply touched but terrified that he’ll let her down the way her ex did. Blake balances cinematic imagery (a live reindeer in the backyard) with silliness (Adam in a reindeer suit inviting Sue Ann to play “reindeer games”) while tugging on readers’ heartstrings like a virtuoso harper. (Nov.)
