If practice makes perfect, I should excel at pretending that Heath Miller doesn’t affect me. That I’m immune to that wide jaw, taut body, and the unique woodsy-aftershave-engine-oil scent that makes my ovaries explode.
Since before I could walk, he’s been my champion. My best friend. The one problem I can’t solve. Why? If I tell him I love him, I’ll lose him and his adorable daughter. Maybe the best Christmas gift I can give him—and myself—is to turn in the keys to my B&B and put some distance between us.
I’ve made my share of mistakes. Lost my MIT scholarship, came home to fix cars and romance Kentbury’s female tourists—until I wound up a single father. For all eight years of Cassie’s life, Knightly’s been my anchor.
I’ve changed. Cassie’s the best part of me, and Knightly’s been there every step of the way. But as Christmas lays its mantle of magic over Kentbury, she drops a bomb—she’s following a dream to New York City. I’ve got one week to do everything, say everything I’ve never dared. To convince my best friend to be mine—ours—for all the holidays to come.
Christmas in Kentbury is like my favorite Hallmark Christmas movie. It’s actually perfect timing for me because it took me until this year to really start watching those movies. I know, I’ve been missing out. The reason I’m telling you all of this is because I’m obsessed this year. I’m talking recording everything on three different channels obsessed. My favorite ones have a little bit of angst. And who is the queen of angst? Claudia Burgoa. She gave just what I needed in this Christmas novella.
Lee and Heath have been best friends since they were kids and they have secretly loved each other for just as long. Neither one of them wants to mess up their friendship so they’ve continued to hide their feelings. When Lee makes a decision that might rip them apart, Heath has to man up and show her how perfect they would be for each other.
I dare you not to fall in love with both Lee and Heath. Lee is sweet, loyal and has a great sense of humor. Heath is protective, loyal and a single Dad that will melt your heart. His interactions with both Lee and Charlotte could chip away at an Ice Queen’s heart.
If you are looking for a Christmas romance with the right amount of sweet that is balanced with a dash of angst, then you need to drop everything and read this baby. You can thank me later.
