Struggling film student Kitty Shakespeare is determined to make the most of her new job as nanny to major producer Everett Klein's son, Jonas. It might not be exactly the career she'd hoped for when she moved from London to LA, but thanks to her habit of freezing up in interviews, this is her last chance to impress a key player in Hollywood - if she can get this right, then surely he'll take a moment to look at her work. However, what Kitty hasn't allowed for is Everett's sexy-as-hell brother, Adam - but love at first sight this is not.
Adam Klein may be sexy, but he's also gruff and rude and in no way ready to make a fool of himself over the nanny - not after the year he's had. All he wants to do hole up in his cabin and hide from the brother who destroyed his life. If only he could find it easier to ignore the way Kitty makes his heart race . . .
As Christmas approaches, Kitty and Adam come to realise that the course of true love never does run smooth - and just maybe, it's more interesting that way...
A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters Christmas romance from the bestselling author of Fix You.

This is the first book of Carrie Elks that I’ve had the pleasure of reading. It was a wonderful combination of heartwarming, sad and funny. I found myself laughing out loud at some points in the story and crying at others. A Winter’s Tale pulled me in and had me falling in love with it’s characters. I couldn’t wait to find out more about their stories. Kitty is down to earth, kind hearted and determined. She’s a film student try to land an internship in the industry. Kitty has had no luck so far but even after receiving rejection letter after rejection later she refuses to accept help. She is determined to prove herself and get an internship on her own. Chance presents Kitty with and unexpected opportunity. It may not be one she was hoping for but it might just be one that’ll get her that much closer to achieving her goal. An unexpected incident had Kitty meeting the tall, handsome and growly Alex. Even though she knows it would be best to stay away from him something draws her to him and has her wondering if there’s more to him than his rough exterior. Alex has had a rough year. An incident happens that lands Alex back in West Virginia staying in a cabin on his parents property. All he wants to do is be alone but life has other ideas. It has him crossing paths with the beautiful Kitty Shakespeare. There’s something about Kitty that has her invading Alex’s thoughts and dreams.

Kitty really wants a chance to break into the film industry but takes a job as a nanny hoping it may put her in a position to get it. Little does she know that's not the only thing that will come out of it. But before it does she has to be seen for who she really is, break down some of her own barriers, get to know a little charmer and figure out what she wants. That's if she can get tall, dark and angry Adam to go along with it. Great read with good characters with a story that holds some secrets, some anger issues, some romance and passion. This is my first read by this author and I like it and her style. Each story is a standalone with carryover characters as we get to know the Shakespeare sisters.
