Ellie McKenna urgently needs a temporary home and a few weeks’ work to get her life back on track. A short term Christmas contract tutoring twin daughters on a huge coastal farm sounds ideal – until, too late, she meets the billionaire owner.
Ellie’s dream job turns into her worst nightmare once she discovers the man she’ll be working for is her long-ago holiday fling. He gave her the hottest memories of her life – and a son he knows nothing about. Now she’s trapped on beautiful Wharemoana Estate, torn away from her wonderful boy while she tries to resist his still-so-tempting father.
Tony Robinson is grieving and guilt-stricken after the slow death of his unsuitable wife. He’s shocked to see the temporary teacher is the beautiful holiday lover he’s never forgotten… that he’s been given a second chance to romance the woman he should never have lost touch with. To his displeasure he finds that although their fierce attraction still rages red-hot, she’s determined to keep him out of her life.
Ellie fights him any way she can, but Tony is so much more of a man now – and could undoubtedly steal Callum away with his wealth and power. She knows he’d love a son after having two daughters. An older son who’s the absolute image of him. Concealing her secret baby’s existence gets harder and harder as the long summer days grind by.
Note from Kris: CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY HEARTS is the second in my Heartlands trilogy. Set in the spectacular rural scenery of New Zealand, these novels take you to faraway places where real men and women seek lasting love – sometimes against daunting odds. If you enjoy romance that leaps off the page – funny, furious and feel-good – then download this sizzling hot story now – and be sure to read the other two – MELTING HER HEART and COWBOY WANTS HER HEART.
All my books can be read as stand-alones, and there are no cliff-hangers. The Heartlands books are best read as shown here, but you can read the Wellington stories in any order. If you would like to know when my next book is published, please go to my website krispearson.com and sign up for my newsletter. Thank you for your wonderful support!

About the Author
Kris writes sizzling contemporary romance, pure and simple. Well, maybe not that pure! They're sexy stories about couples who fall in love, and into bed along the way, just like real people do. The first novel in her new Scarlet Bay trilogy - SUMMER SPARKS - is a lusty romp with a heartbreaking backstory threaded through it. The best of both. The second is SUMMER SECRETS. She's currently writing SUMMER SPICE, and this is available on pre-order. Five of her Wellington books have been published in sweeter editions under the author name of Kerri Peach. If it's fine, Kris gardens. If it's wet, she writes. And if the writing's going well, the garden can look after itself. She's an advertising copywriter and a decor specialist, and the author of 'The Boat Builder's Bed'. More than two million copies have now been downloaded free, and giving away a taste of her work with this one kick-started sales of all her others. Her seven Wellington Series novels are set in the capital city so she can make use of the beautiful harbor in the plots. Her three Heartlands novels follow couples who live in more remote country areas of New Zealand. Her all-time best-seller is 'Taken by the Sheikh'. There's now also 'Desired by the Sheikh', and these are not quite your usual sheikh stories. Four books are now available in Spanish. There's a Spanish version of her website http://www.krispearson.com - click the flags at the top right of it to change languages. Five are currently being translated for China. ~ ~ ~ Kris es una chispeante autora de romántica contemporánea, pura y simplemente. ¡Bueno, quizá no tan pura! Se trata de historias sensuales sobre parejas que, a medida que avanza la trama, se enamoran y acaban en la cama, exactamente como en la vida real. Cuando hace buen tiempo se dedica a trabajar en el jardín y si llueve, a escribir, y cuando está inspirada y no puede dejar de escribir, el jardín puede cuidar de sí mismo. Es redactora publicitaria y decoradora especializada y autora de “La cama del constructor de barcos”, de la que se descargaron gratis más de un millón de copias en inglés, lo que permitió dar a conocer su trabajo e impulsar las ventas de todas sus demás novelas. Precisamente ahora, la versión española de esta novela se encuentra disponible gratis para los lectores de habla hispana, así que descargaos una copia ya. Visit her website - http://www.krispearson.es
