Just days before Christmas, a mysterious and sexy stranger arrived at Claire Franklin's bed-and-breakfast--and awakened her every desire. So the pretty innkeeper decided it was high time to bring a little holiday cheer to her cozy home--complete with mistletoe. Then, one starry night, bullets started flying--and Claire wondered if more than her heart was at risk....

Secret agent Zane Hunter vowed to protect Claire from the killer who wanted him--and anyone he'd ever cared about--dead. Because somehow, over the holiday, Zane had come to care way too much for the achingly vulnerable beauty. And now he longed to hold her close--not just for Christmas, but forever....

Claire Franklin finds her orderly life in her Bed & Breakfast upended by her Christmas guest Zane Hunter. Much of the book is spent traveling through parts of Washington State evading the assassin, "The Ghost." Of course, there's also the inevitable chemistry between the 2 main characters. Here's a Christmas read that will get your heart pumping in more ways than one. Thanks to the Inner Circle for the copy of this book.

This was a sweet, well-written book. Claire owns a bed and breakfast and is enjoying celebrating the season by adding some holiday decorations. Zane is a secret agent who has booked a room for a few nights while he recuperates from a recent injury. However, he discovers he is being pursued by a killer, which puts Claire in danger. Zane vows to keep her safe. The interactions between Claire and Hunter seemed very natural and it was fun to read about them getting to know each other. I enjoyed this book very much.

This is the story of Claire and Zane. Claire is a woman who wants to create the home she never really had and share it with others as her bed-and-breakfast. Claire has her own issues with Christmas as she attempts to make the house festive for Zane. Zane is a hunky Native American who is injured inside and out. He is looking for a peaceful place to hide out and recover. He thinks he's found it at the quaint bed-and-breakfast. Then a phone call that Claire receives from a French woman shatters the peace and sends them both running for safety. Can the attraction they feel for each other bloom through all the chaos? Will it and will they even survive past Christmas? This isn't your average Christmas romance story. It does have some romance in it, but it has a hefty dose of suspense, guns and people on the run. It was, however much to my surprise, still a very enjoyable, worthwhile read. I was given a complimentary copy of this book.

One of those don't judge by the cover situations. The cover art would lead the read to believe this is a sweet hallmark type of story - and it's not. Minor quibble over cover art not matching the tone of the book, but one that tends to make me grumpy all the same. My preferred read is generally light, happy, fluffy romance. This one is not quite that. Much more spy on the run type of story - dodging bullets and getting thrown into life-threatening situations. I would tend to categorize this author's work as more women's fiction, but this felt more romance than the author tends to write, making it more up my alley. I liked the characters being real with each other and the situation they found themselves in. The female MC was strong and vulnerable - but entirely believable. The male MC struggling to see the humanity in himself after what seems like a lifetime of spy type work. I found myself very engaged and enjoying the story. I would definitely recommend. *ARC provided by author's Inner Circle of Awesomeness reader group
