They both need a Christmas miracle
Holly Jansen, a young orchestra conductor down on her luck, is secretly hired by an alien king to conduct The Nutcracker on Kwadra Island as a Christmas present for his American wife. This big break seems like a Christmas miracle . . . but after she meets the lead dancer, she wonders if it’s a curse, instead.
For the Kwadran queen has secretly ordered idealistic nationalist Rafael Sekwa to produce a Christmas potlatch honoring Kwadra’s tribal ancestors—on same day and time as Holly’s Nutcracker. He’s determined to do so, no matter what, and Holly finds her ambition melting in the face of her growing admiration . . and love.
Then Rafe asks Holly to pretend to be his girlfriend to make another woman jealous. When the magic of Christmas conspires to make the playacting feel too real, Holly tries to back out of the concert. But is it too late for escape — and for her heart?

About the Author
Edward Hoornaert is not only a science fiction and romance writer, he's also a certifiable Harlequin Hero, having inspired NYT best-selling author Vicki Lewis Thompson to write Mr. Valentine, which was dedicated to him. From this comes his online alter ego, "Mr. Valentine." These days, Hoornaert mostly writes science fiction—either sf romances, or sf with elements of romance. After living at 26 different addresses in his first 27 years, the rolling stone slowed in the Canadian Rockies and finally came to rest in Tucson, Arizona. Amongst other things, he has been a teacher, technical writer, and symphonic oboist. He married his high school sweetheart a week after graduation and is still in love … which is probably why he can write romance.
