A woman determined to spread the Christmas spirit…

Former socialite turned community centre worker Candice Kane loves Christmas. In the run down area she works in, economics and rising unemployment mean that there isn't a lot of Christmas spirit to go around. Determined to do something about it, for the last couple of years she's arranged a Christmas Party, complete with a visit from Santa for the neighbourhood kids. This year though, a break-in and damage from vandals means the party could be cancelled.

A Santa who hates Christmas…

Rhod is…was…a Santa. For years he joined the other men in his family delivering presents, until the attitude and ungratefulness of the rich children he delivered to made him hang up his red suit. Working for the Paranormal Protection Agency, he's convinced himself that he's happier without being the big guy anymore.

When he and his partner rescue Candy from an attack in a secluded alley, all Rhod's decisions are put to the test. Can he hold out against a woman with Christmas spirit in her heart, or will he lose his own in the process?

Meet the Author

Mina Carter was born and raised in Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England). After a slew of careers ranging from logistics to land-surveying she can now be found in the wilds of Leicestershire with her husband and young daughter…the true boss of the family.

Suffering the curse of eternal curiosity Mina never tires of learning new skills which has led to Aromatherapy, Corsetry, Chain-maille making, Welding, Canoeing, Shooting, and pole-dancing to name but a few. A veteran Star Trek RPGer, she’s run both games and groups of games but now finds her home in Bravo Fleet, one of the internet’s oldest Star Trek simm groups.

She juggles being a mum, working full time and writing, tossing another ball in the air with her cover artwork. For Mina, writing time is the wee hours of the morning before anyone wakes up and starts making demands, or any spare minute that can be begged, bought or conned.

Her first stories were penned at age 11, when she used a stationery set meant for Christmas thank you letters to write stories instead. More recently, she wrote for her own amusement and to save on outrageous monthly book bills. Now she’s totally addicted and needs her daily writing fix or heads roll!

    Read this as part of the PPA volume one anthology

    I loved it. A well written and thought out story. I don't like to give out spoilers and so I won't, but I will say that it was a fantastic read. 
    Compared to the others this one was a bit more unique. Less run of the mill creature but santa? I loved it still though. Woman saved
    by man, man protects and cares for woman. It was great. 

    Definitely suggest this to anyone who loves steamy romance.
    Go... Buy... Read. You won't regret it

    This is the fourth book in the Paranormal Protection Agency seri

    This is the fourth book in the Paranormal Protection Agency series. I believe that I got in a blog hop during Christmas time. I have not read anything by Mina Carter before, but was willing to give it a try since it was more like a novella with only five chapters and about 86 pages. I was looking for something short to fill in some time one evening, and this fit the bill very nicely. 

    We are introduced to Candy Kane as she is trying to figure out how to save the Christmas Party at the Chapel Community Centre, that she runs. The kids will be expecting a Santa with toys, but with repairs needing to be made due to a break in and vandalism, it doesn't look like they will be able do both. After calling to cancel the supplies, she found many willing to offer them at a discount or alternatives for free. Except for Santa. She is short 1 Santa Claus for the party. It is at this point, I kinda guessed where we would be going with the story.

    Next up, we are introduced to Rhod Claus, a bodyguard at the Paranormal Protection Agency. Everyone at the agency thinks he is a snow elf, because all elves who leave the North Pole take the sur-name Claus. Be he is the real deal, one of the actual bloodline of Claus' who become Santa on December 24th each year to help deliver presents to all the good girls and boys. But he hates Christmas and has hung up his belt forever. They meet when Candy is being mugged not far from the Agency headquarters and she is saved by Rhod and his partner, Stone. 

    There was a lot packed into this little story and it moves fairly quickly. Coming in on the fourth book, I do feel like I missed some things, especially dealing with the world building, but I didn't really mind, because I was quite wrapped up in Rhod and Candy's story. I think this could have probably been expanded into a full length novel, with more world building, more back story, the characters dragging their feet about the relationship and the action strung out, but I liked it as it was. I am going to find the first 3 books in the series and check them out. The concept is great and I think I am going really like Ms. Carter's world. It got 3 Stars on Goodreads.
