Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.

Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.

But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.

When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to change his mindset and help him spread Christmas cheer. Charlie finds Candice too chatty, too sweet, too much. Do people like her really exist?

Why yes, yes they do. The more time they spend together—along with a few kisses under the mistletoe—the more they start to like each other. Hopefully Charlie can convince Candice he doesn’t have a heart that’s two sizes too small before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.

    So much goodness in this book! I absolutely loved Charlie and his grumpiness. Candice was perfect for him. She brought out the good guy lurking underneath all the grumpy. This is such a charming and wonderful holiday story that will give you all the feels.
  • Charming Holiday Romance!

    By Astroyic
    I loved this charming, Christmas romance. It was filled full of christmas wonder, parties, and cheer, as well as some cheesy christmas traditions, heartfelt moments, character vulnerability, and a sweet romance story. It will make you smile, mad, tingle, laugh and swoon and maybe shed a tear or two. I loved Candice. She is just so full of cheer and goodwill. Christmas is her favorite time of year. She is on all the charities committees donating her time and money to make them a success and to fill the void in her life. No one would know it but, she has been feeling lonely and bored, trying to forget about the her mother and the fact that she has no significant other to spend the holidays with. But this year she has been asked to help Charlie Sullivan. The Sullivan Tree Farm family’s new spokesperson. Candice is hoping that he could be a fun project. She can reform the grinch man into a smooth sophisticated gentleman who people will admire and respect. He could be on her arm at all the parties and functions, she could introduce him, help him make connections, and then he will be forever in my debt. Charlie Sullivan might be the future of the Sullivan Tree Farm but he is going into his mother’s request kicking and complaining. He doesn’t have time for such nonsense at their busiest time of the year. He is also afraid that he will ruin everything. Little does he know that the woman that would be helping him is the stunningly, beautiful woman he met outside of Sweet Dreams. These two have a sizzling connection from the moment they meet. But they are opposites in every way. So snuggle up tight and hold on for their christmas filled adventures. Because the ride has a few bumps in the road. If you want a story that will fill you up and make you happy, that’s entertaining, with a lot of christmas spirit, and just the right amount of spice and love, this is it.
