Emotion (Laughs/Tears): 1/5
I liked the first story well enough. It was cute once I got past the fact that the hero was an alien and over-bearing at times. Pace is good. Character development seemed a little one-sided. I knew a lot about Claire and her family for the majority of the story, but almost nothing about Philip. I give 3 stars. As for the second story, it was okay, but not really my thing, but I did read all of it. I'd give it 2 stars.
Overall, the book was good. I'd never read the second author, so it was a nice intro to her style. The second story was more holiday-y than the first in my opinion. The book is just one of those "It is what it is" deals. Not much I can say really.

The Prince Who Stole Christmas by Leslie Kelly
Starts out with how a prince is trying to find a bride but all the maidens are only interested in his crown and palaces.
He's agreed to marry one of his parents choices if this last trip to find one for himself proves nil. He heads to New York.
Claire Hoffman runs the candy shop but her brother Freddy could easily eat all the profits.
He owes $10k = his gambling! She's just about making ends meet with the shop. she can't help him again.
Prince Philip Nadir and his bodyguard have arrived in NY and Phateen doesn't want him to rent the apartment cuz it was very shabby.
Freddy had rented the condemned apartment above the shop to the prince.
She thinks Philip is the thug coming to collect the money for Freddy's debts and he, from another planet finds her interesting and loves the chocolate she is melting.
After he licked the spoon he started kissing her next...
Besides sightseeing Philip is around to watch out for her so the thugs don't come and beat her up...
Wow the things he does with chocolate, talk about hot steamy erotic sex, whoa!
Deadline is Christmas eve, will she go to his world or will she stay with her brother at the candy shop???
My True Love Gave To Me by Jannifer LaBrecque
Gertrude Brown and Knox Whitaker were longtime buddies, she was raised next door to his grandmother. Now that she had died Knox feels they should just move on with their own life's. His girlfriend doesn't understand their relationship so he just wants a clean break from Trudy.
Love hearing of all the towns traditions and the legends of the holidays.
Years later they meet for the festival and he's now a vet and she runs a flower business. His girlfriend Elsa is in the fashion industry and is a material type person.
While setting up the tree display she was so happy to see that his grandmothers ornaments had not been just tossed out. They almost kissed then but she pulled away. On the way to get her car he did stop the truck and kiss her and she wonders now if that was a wise thing to do.
They were scheduled to go visit the bison range, fly in and spend a few hours there.
When Trudie finds out Elsa and Knox had broken up over a week ago she felt better about kissing him.
Love the chat they have about what happened with his grandmother and how he was reluctant about things. She's just glad they are able to discuss it in the open.
Love how they resume the 12 days of Christmas presents for one another...
Love of love scenes in this one also, hot and steamy.
