Fired from her retail position for saying Merry Christmas to a customer, Sonya Simmons chafes at the over-commercialization of the season and the difficulties of finding a new job. If only she'd actually said Merry Christmas instead of Merry Kisses to the tall, good-looking man buying enough toys for at least a dozen children. How embarrassing!
It was fun to fluster the pretty toy store clerk, but Heath Collins, the mall's volunteer Santa Claus, hadn't meant to get her fired. When his elf assistant comes down with a bad cold, Heath offers Sonya a few days' work, only to discover she believes Santa is nothing but a liar and a fraud instead of an opportunity to make a difference in children's lives.
Can Sonya and Heath embrace each other — opinions, traditions, and all — in time to share merry kisses for Christmas?
"An uplifting, wonderful love story."
"I honestly would love to see this as a movie. I enjoyed it that much."
