A holiday hook-up leads to a lifetime of love in this charming story continuing the adventures of the Masters of Maria series.
Alex Cavanaugh is used to fielding odd requests at her waitressing job. She would have never predicted, though, that she’d get brazenly propositioned for a one-night stand with a needy werewolf—or that she’d be lonely enough to tell him yes.
Ben Swain’s inner wolf has been howling for him to take a permanent mate, but he’s terrified of change. He’s clawed his way to status and respect from his pack and doesn’t want to sacrifice that for anything. A short tryst while he’s visiting Maria, New Mexico, before the holidays is supposed to be a stopgap measure to keep his wolf hormones in check, but Ben’s animal side wants more of Alex.
Although she’s a human, quirky Alex’s go-with-the-flow, practical personality perfectly complements Ben’s wild intensity. But after being burned by men before, her budding horticulture career has become her number one priority. Sure, she wants love, but she’d rather be alone than with someone who isn’t fully committed. So why can’t she seem to resist Ben?
If the two can’t figure out a way to balance the two most important things in their lives, all they’ll be getting for Christmas is regret.

Characters you can have fun with. A great read by HT.
My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! I bought this book because I wanted to read it before reading book 4, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I will collect this whole series eventually! The cover is sexy! I love that both beasts are on the cover! This is the 3rd book in this series! It is for adults only due to the steamy content. I highly recommend reading the books in order because they are much better when you do! This is about 128 pages long and a quick read. This was a great story, and the wolves are quirky and hilarious! Alex is a waitress, and she is a rare human who is in the know about all the paranormals in Maria. Ben is a sweet wolf who works hard, and he is looking for a fix and instead finds a mate. I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who love mixed worlds with witches, fae, shifters, angels, and demons! Holley writes awesome stories that are hard to put down because they are that good!
Fruitcake Fix Most people hate eating fruitcake but you have Alex that can't or won't live without it. She love the cake made by Clarissa the queen of elves with just the right amount of alcohol and maybe a little magic. Enter Ben a wolf having issues keeping his hormones in check that will keep his inner wolf under control. If he does not find temporary relief or a mate soon he will go wild. Enjoyed this book and the interactions of the all the characters kept me entertained to the very end. I have voluntarily read and reviewed this book without obligation to do so.
