Oh baby, it's cold outside...
Austin Bishop doesn't want a lot for Christmas. He especially isn't looking for love.
But romance shows up anyway, in the form of the most beautiful, curvy redhead he's ever seen.
Suddenly, canoodling under the mistletoe seems like the best Christmas activity this side of eating homemade snickerdoodles. A fling with no strings attached? There's no better way to celebrate the holidays.
Except, partway through the twelve days of Christmas, it stops being a fling and starts feeling like a whole lot more.
But Ivy has secrets, and so does he...
Christmas of Love is the fifth novel in the Long Valley Romance series, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It has some strong language, and oh my, sexy times. Enjoy!
NOTE: In October 2020, this book was re-released after a major expansion and update was done. The new edition is clearly marked with an "Expanded and Revised" red medallion on the cover. I hope you enjoy this new edition!
Christmas expanded version
I struggled through this until I realized that I know what it’s like when kids are so mean. I could understand what Ivy was feeling. It was cathartic when I cried. I like when she realizes that she needs to forgive- for herself.
Christmas of Kove
Loved this sweet romance! This book also brings in abuse - teenager to teenager and the long lasting hurt it leaves. Good life lessons with this sweet love as the prize.
Christmas of Love
This expanded and revised book has wonderful characters. Ivy and Austin have issues to get over. Ivy came home for her parents anniversary party only to have to change her plane ticket because her sister Iris fell. Austin received a job in Long Valley and trying to be nice went out with the waitress from the diner. Tiffany is clingy and thinks her and Austin are in a relationship after one date. It was great reading them getting to know each other.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
