Meet the Author



USA Today bestselling author Heidi Rice lives in London and is married with two teenage sons (which gives her rather too much of an insight into the male psyche). She also works as a film journalist but loves being a romance writer because it involves sitting down at her computer each day and getting swept up in a world of high emotions, sensual excitement, smart feisty women, sexy tortured men and glamorous locations where laundry doesn't exist ... Not bad, eh.

Then she gets to turn off her computer and do chores (usually involving laundry!).

    A Holiday Must Read!
    I received this book for review from the publisher and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  

    You’ll find that you’ll get a little jealous of how Kate and Ryder spend their Christmas.  This would be a great read for Christmas Eve.  And what a great way to celebrate with your significant other – think role-playing.  This story will have you smiling at the end.  It’s a great holiday tale.  It also has me wanting to check out some of her other books.  This novella series is turning out to be a great holiday find.

    Ryder Sinclair is back in town to visit is daughter fro Christma

    Ryder Sinclair is back in town to visit is daughter fro Christmas and is visiting his father’s store for a present. In walks Kate, the new PR manager for the store. She knows of Ryder and what she knows does not impress her. Having to spend an evening locked up in the store waiting out a storm is not what she had planned, especially in the company of the playboy-heir of the company.

    This was such a fun story. I enjoyed watching as Kate’s assumptions about Ryder were put to rest and in its place an irresistible attraction to the man developed. Ryder was sweet, caring and flirtatious. His first impression of Kate thrown out the window as soon as put down her walls and let herself enjoy the moment. I loved Kate’s flustered state and her hesitation to give in to her attraction to Ryder.

    I liked that Heidi Rice brought some emotions to the mix and revealed a significant amount of Ryder and Kate’s story. I felt connected to them, which helped me accept and thoroughly enjoy the moments these two spend together and the final outcome.

    All in all, a romantic and hot story with interesting characters who I would love to read more about.

    Somehow, even though 'Tis the Season to Get Lucky is even shorte

    Somehow, even though 'Tis the Season to Get Lucky is even shorter in length than the first book in the series, 'Tis the Season to Kiss Santa, it didn't end up feeling nearly as rushed. I found the initial antagonism between the two characters much more believable, and their gradual giving in to their attraction more realistic. Plus, they got to indulge in every woman's secret fantasy--"shopping" in a closed department store. (Seriously. With a hot guy, too. Who doesn't want that? Dream. Come. True.)




    The ending falls victim to the it's-a-novella-end-it-quickly syndrome, but was still eminently enjoyable. (Have I mentioned the secret shopping fantasy? Yes? Well, then...) I'll definitely be picking up more from this author in the future. B+ rating.




    I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Katherine and Ryder were a very difficult couple for me because

    Katherine and Ryder were a very difficult couple for me because at first I couldn’t connect with neither. Kat was a bit cold and everything was mechanical for her, so I liked halfway into this novella the way Ryder showed some freedom. Their night together was extra hot and I think she needed after the way her boyfriend dumped her with an e-mail. At first thought you think Ryder is just another playboy, but in reality his life is completely different and he showed a nurturing side talking about his daughter. I liked these two together in the end and they match.

    A Christmas romance NOT to be missed!

    Reviewed by Kim
    for Read Your Writes Book Reviews

    I loved this story. ‘Tis the Season to Get Lucky was so much more than I was expecting. This is definitely a Christmas romance NOT to be missed. Appearances are not always as they seem and this story is a perfect example of that. ‘Tis the Season to Get Lucky made me laugh, smile, and fall in love with Ryder and Kate.

    Ryder Sinclair is the heir apparent to the Sinclair department store. He doesn’t make a lot of appearances at the store but he pulls down a pretty nice paycheck. Ryder is seen as a jet setting playboy without a care in the world. Kate Braithwaite is spending her first Christmas in America. Her new job as a PR manager for Sinclair’s is very important to her and she loves it. She loves it so much so....she’s willing to go to work on Christmas Day, without being asked to.

    Ryder happens to be in the store on Christmas Day looking for a present. He doesn’t expect anyone to be there and is surprised to find Kate there. With a large snow storm approaching, the two end up being trapped in the store, waiting for the storm to pass and the lights to come back on. But in the midst of everything, these two discover that they made rash judgements about each other and this Christmas they are going to receive one of the best presents ever...a love like no other.

    So far this is the 2nd of the 'Tis the Season books I've read fr

    So far this is the 2nd of the 'Tis the Season books I've read from Entangled and it's currently my favorite. I'm normally not a big novella reader because I always want to know more or read what happens next but this one was really enjoyable as is. I don't care how plausible this or that was it was just a really fun story. Who wouldn't want to be trapped in a huge department store overnight and you throw in a hot guy who's been overseas embedded with the military and hasn't seen a woman in months? Their meeting set the stage for the story. They antagonized each other and were attracted to each other at the same time. It was a lighthearted, funny, sexy read. Def a holiday fav!

    With a crazy snow storm outside, Kate has to deal with her phobi

    With a crazy snow storm outside, Kate has to deal with her phobia of being afraid of the dark. When the lights go out she latches onto the first safe thing in her path, which happens to be Ryder Sinclair and of course, Ryder doesn't mind having a sexy voluptuous woman plastered to his chest, even if it is from fear. Kate and Ryder are stuck in his father's department store because there's a freak snow storm outside and of course, they make the best out of the situation. When the storm's over and they go their separate ways, will one night have been enough?

    You must read this totally sexy Christmas story! I'm surprised the department store's windows weren't steamed up completely. I love the fact that Ryder's character unfolded so beautifully. He started out as the spoiled son of the owner (or so we thought) and ended up a fun, loving, serious-about-life, amazing father, kind of man. Thank you Heidi Rice for writing such an amazing, feel-good story. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author in the future!

    I received a copy for an honest review.

    Kate Braithwaite is not having a very merry holiday. She is spending Christmas day at work rather than stay in her apartment alone. She was just dumped by her boyfriend by email. Getting caught in a New York blizzard might be the best thing that every happens to her. She is snowed in with Ryder Sinclair the sexy son of the owner. They may have started off on the wrong foot but that quickly changed. The heat between these two is off the charts. Will her Christmas wish come true? I loved this holiday novella. Kate and Ryder have intense chemistry, but they also connect on a personal level which I love. I want them to find a HEA because I care for them. This story definitely put me in the holiday mood. The author did a wonderful job in this short story.

    This was such a perfect Christmas novella, that it made me want

    This was such a perfect Christmas novella, that it made me want to read more of it. Unfortunately, it’s a novella which means, short and sexy, and boy was it sexy. First let me say this cover completely fits with our hero in the story. I mean, have you taken a look at those abs?
    As I’ve said with every novella I’ve read, I’m not really a novella person, but this one just had all the right words and feelings. I really liked how Kate went from instantly disliking Ryder, to all the chemistry that tingled my senses in the space of a few minutes. 
    This story is easily read and can be devoured in a matter of minutes. And it’ll get you in a whole different type of Christmas spirit in a very short time. ;)
