Snuggle up in front of a blazing fire, your favorite quilt, and a piping mug of hot chocolate as you delve into this sweet, holiday romance.
On the other hand, forget the hot chocolate, or it will end up coming out your nose from all the chuckling and laughing you're going to do.
Kylie Dennis, one of the top sales associates for the department store where she works, has given up on men. Not a one can live up to her standards. And they're not even that high: be an interesting, kind person whose main goal in talking to her is to get her into bed with him.
When the H.R. department asks her to work in appliances for a couple of weeks, until Christmas, she seethes at the inconvenience. She's always worked in women's apparel, and knows nothing about appliances. But then, she begins to see the manager of appliances, Michael, in a different light. He's kind, fun to be around in a quiet way, and handsome.
She lets her feelings for him grow.
Until the day she catches him kissing one of the temporary sales associates.
Oh, how she would love to drop him from her life. Except for two things. She needs to keep working in appliances in order to earn more commissions due to a family crisis.
The other problem? She drew Michael's name during the annual staff Secret Santa meeting.
Michael Harrison knows that a woman like Kylie Dennis is way above his pay grade. Especially since he has to walk with a cane, thanks to an old accident. But when he draws her name to be her Secret Santa, he wonders if giving her the right kinds of gifts might be a way to subtly woo her.
Problem is, Kylie alternates between warm and cold in her treatment of him. And like a typical man, he has no idea what he's done to deserve it.
This clean and wholesome holiday romance novel is the first of six novels in Emily Josephine's "Christmas Sisters" series. Although it's not strictly a rom-com, the wild misunderstandings between Kylie and Michael, helped along with the intrusion of the zany Luna Bell, the temporary associate in question, will have you giggling and tittering, sometimes outright laughing. Get ready for heartwarming moments as well, that will have you letting out holiday cheer-filled sighs of satisfaction.
