MISTLETOE MAGIC, book 2

Major Mark Riley plays Court Jester to Janelle Walsh's Snow Queen at the Christmas Parade and is instantly captivated by the cute redhead whose grandpa just happens to be Santa. When Mark learns she's the tenant he evicted from his newly purchased property, it's going to take a little bit of Santa's mistletoe magic to save their romance.

EXCERPT:

She gave him a quick half-smile and sidestepped toward the wagon. "It was nice to meet you, Major. Thanks for doing such a great job as the jester."

"You're welcome, and you can call me Mark, you know."

"Major's safer."

The briefest flash of consternation in her expression told him she hadn't meant to say that out loud. When her foot landed on the step so she could pull herself up into the driver's seat, Mark caught her arm and turned her around. She grabbed hold of his shoulder to keep her balance on the narrow step.

"If I don't do this, it's going to drive me crazy until I see you again," he told her in a low voice.

Her throat muscles worked in a hard swallow. "Do what?" A downward flick of her gaze said she knew the answer to her own question.

He let his mouth relax in a slow, confidant smile. One step closer brought him close enough to brace a hand against the wagon on either side of her. "I gotta tell you, pretty as you were as the Snow Queen, elf suits you better--although I do miss those cute, pointy little ears."

She rolled her eyes. "Oh, please."

He took a moment to let his gaze roam over her face. Snow drifted down silently and their breath mingled in the frigid air. Mark drew out the anticipation of what was to come, enjoying the awareness that warmed the space between them.

"You look like Christmas," he murmured.

One corner of her mouth twitched. "I'm guessing it's the costume."

He shook his head and reached up to twirl a red curl around his finger, watching the silky length wind against his skin before holding her gaze with his. "Red and green, and all wrapped up like a delicious, cinnamon scented present."

She laughed softly.

Mark closed the remaining few inches, pressing the length of his body to hers. "In fact, I think I need to go find Santa and tell him I've been a real good boy this year."

He spoke the last words a hairsbreadth away from her lips.

Mistletoe Magic by Stacey Joy Netzel Romancing Wisconsin Series Book 2 In this book we are introduced to Major Mark Riley, plus Santa Butch & Judy’s granddaughter Janelle Walsh, and other family members. Major Mark Riley is there to play the Court Jester to Janelle Walsh’s Snow Queen at the Christmas Parade and he is captivated instantly by the cute redhead. Only much later he realized that she is the tenant he is evicting from his newly purchased property and that does not play well in his trying to make points with her. He may need some of the Santa mistletoe magic in order to save their romance. Mark played the job as the jester wonderfully. He helps her down from the wagon and he figures then he tries for the kiss now or he might not get another chance. Mark is buying the property where Janelle lives. She wanted to have it be a shelter for animal’s no one wanted and Mark plans to turn it into cabins with some for veterans and their families and some for others. The bad news he will be evicting her on Christmas Eve. Will the definite chemistry between Mark and Janelle survive all this turmoil? Could love again prevail with that little help from Santa? At this point I am thinking this Santa must be real. When he first met the animals he had some look into his eyes and it made him think of his time in the military and he had flash backs from the military. But he does change his mind about the animals are realizes they can help the Veterans that stay there also mend. Mark and Janelle do not stand a chance once Santa Butch has cast that spell. Plus, Janelle helps Mark lose some of the rough edges from his time in the military. I love Stacey Joe Netzel’s writing style and Book 3 will prove just as good as Books 1 & 2.
