Beachcomber Santa - a Beachcomber Investigations Novella
Ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise needs to rest his soul and find his Christmas spirit with the help of his new partner, the scorching hot bane of his existence, Shana George. They team up to find a missing Santa--and the money he collected for the church--in time for the church Christmas party. But will Dane get the Merry Christmas he's hoping for?
Dane finds the perfect excuse to celebrate the holiday season with Shana when Jim the butcher hires Beachcomber Investigations to find the Missing grocery store bell-ringing Santa--Rusty Gates. The local cops may think Rusty took off with the money he collected for the church to give the needy, but his family wants to keep him out of jail. Dane and Shana need to find him--and the money before the church Christmas party in three days.
Meanwhile Dane wants more than a kiss under the mistletoe for Christmas from Shana, but when he realizes she's homesick for Australia, will he let playing Santa at the church party go to his heart and give Shana her wish?
