Overview

What if the legend of Santa Claus is in fact, true? What if Santa has five big strapping sons who help him run his empire? Five single, sexy sons looking for romance...

Nicholas Klaus is a master pastry chef, a strict disciplinarian, and the eldest son of the legendary Santa Claus. One look at café owner Lucy Brewster sends him into an unexpected tailspin of lusty desires. When Lucy is injured, Nicholas makes a decision that catapults both of their lives into turmoil.

Lucy Brewster, the free-spirited proprietor of Sweet Inspiration, has a flair for concocting sugary confections but no time for adventure. She gets more than she bargained for when she awakens in the North Pole...rambunctious elves, a fitness-obsessed Santa, and the man of her dreams. Does she have what it takes to become the next Mrs. Klaus?

RATING 4.5 STARS Sweet Inspiration is book one in the Klaus Brothers series by Penny Watson. I have only read one of Penny’s books previous to this, Apples Should Be Red, and I loved it, so I went in to this one pretty sure I would love it as well and I really did. This is such a sweet Christmas tale with an adult twist as we get to know the oldest of Santa Claus’s sons. Nicholas Sebastian Klaus is the oldest of the five sons of St. Nick. Nicholas has taken a vacation and is in Eston, New York where he found a little bakery, Sweet Inspiration, where they have the best sugar cookies he has ever tasted. And once he saw the owner of the shop and the baker of these scrumptious cookies, he was smitten. After two weeks, though, it’s almost time to go home and he still hasn’t spoken to her. He wants to find out what her secret ingredient is for the cookies but more than that, he wants to see if she tastes as good as the cookies she bakes. Nicholas is a baker and works in his own shop in the village at the North Pole. He loves what he does but as the oldest son of St. Nick, he is expected to transition into his father’s role when his father is ready to retire. He can’t imagine not being able to work in his kitchen, but it’s his legacy, his responsibility, to be the future Santa. Lucy Anne Brewster is living her dream owning her own shop. But with her parents gone and no siblings, she wished she had someone to share it with. When her assistant unexpectedly has to take time off during her busiest time of year, and the oh so sexy Nicholas steps in to help her out, she is at first hesitant, but is quickly bewitched by this handsome giant of a man. Maybe this Christmas won’t be so lonely. When circumstances arise that force Nick to take Lucy to his home at the North Pole, he has to reveal who he really is and who his father is. But Lucy is a hit and is quickly adored by the elves and by his family. But by bringing her here, Nick broke one of the most important rules of the village, never bring a human to their village without prior authorization and divulge their secrets. This was such an adorable and also sexy story as we met the first of the Klaus brothers. Lucy was so sweet and I loved the influence she had on Nicholas. This book was so much fun and I loved meeting the other brothers. I can’t wait to start the second book in this series, Sweet Magik, where we will meet the youngest of the sons, Oskar. This book was a perfect addition to my Christmas reading this year!

This was a very enjoyable holiday read! I was looking for something fun and easy with a bit of magic and a dash of romance and this book completely delivered. In this book we are introduced to the delightful Klaus family and the eldest son Nicholas who is destined to take on the reins of "Santa" when his father retires. Sadly for Nicholas, however, his true love lies in cooking rather than toy production and delivery and when he falls in love with a baker from the South...it throws all of the North Pole into a bit of a talespin! I loved all of the characters in this tale from the independent Lucy, to the moody Nicholas, his band of younger brothers and his delightful parents. The pacing of the novel is perfect and the author's descriptions of the North Pole are simply magical. Add in a healthy dose of some steamy romance and it's a perfect read for a cold winter's eve! I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun quick holiday read and who doesn't mind the steamy bits!
