Wow, it's taken me nearly a year to get around to reading this! Free in November 2016 Ides of Matt I believe. I do love Matt's White House stories, they remind me of that wonderful world of The West Wing when the President and his staff were fighting the good fight and always had the best intentions. Cornelia Day was the Vice President's Assistant, but now he's the President Elect she is moving up in the world as his nominated Chief of Staff. In her first day in the Situation Room she meets Marine Corps Situation Room Duty Officer Damien Feinman. Damien is an anomaly, a Marine who has served 10 years in a job that should be rotated every two years. Damien is just as fascinated by the unusual woman before him and the puzzle she poses. This is most definitely a meeting of minds. Two highly intellectual, driven individuals at the peak of their careers, analytical and thoughtful they see far more than others around them. TBH, that would be enough for me but, because it's Christmas Matt gave us more. A mysterious meeting with an old enemy in an infamous New York deli provides clues to a potential terrorist attack. But where? And when? This was deeply satisfying both as a Night Stalkers White House novella, a romance, a mystery AND a holiday story. Loved it.
Okay book but several editing problems. I did like that so many of the DC charactors were back. Silly plot and I won't reread.
Although I have read many of M.L. stories, I have not read many of the 'The Night Stalker's White House" Series. With that said, "Damien's Christmas" stands alone quite well. I love strong men and women, and with the story of Cornelia and Damien, you get a strong pairing of two people that work in the White House. Cornelia's mind, as incoming chief of staff, is quick and never stops thinking on how to solve a problem, and is on a par with Damien's equally quick mind. Damien, a Marine Corp. watch officer for the Sit room is a bit bowled over by Cornelia. Together these two minds make for a great suspenseful story with a romance that has them falling in love, and a wonderful conclusion to 'The Night Stalker's White House' series. The diplomacy is as it should be when dealing with dignitaries, the action quick and exact, the romance subtle and sweet, and the book an all around winner. Thank you to the author for gifting me with "Damien's Christmas" and asking for my honest opinion. This is mine. 4.5 Stars!
