Publisher Description

Harley Reid

My holiday plans? Boxed wine, flannel pajamas, and Netflix minus the “chill”. I hadn’t planned on getting off my apathy until after New Years—until I accidentally crash into my ex’s new girlfriend’s car. But it’s the motivation I need to flee to my Aunt Nora’s place in NYC for Christmas.


Colliding with a typically grouchy New Yorker isn’t my best foot forward. But sweet Jesus on a cracker, he’s a lickable, Viking-size hunk of hotness. As we somehow keep running into each other, I begin to believe I can shed the hurt and humiliation and be fearless.


Nils Axelsson

My holiday plans? Spending my hockey team’s break alone. My friend Nora, however, won’t let me escape her vortex of holiday cheer, and I find myself agreeing to take her niece to a Rockettes show.


I was expecting an awkward teenager in braces, but it’s the same woman who plowed into me in the elevator. A knock-me-sideways stunning blonde whose beauty and kindness hits me like a puck to the chest. The more time I spend with her, the more I want as much as I can get before she has to go back home. Unless I can give her a reason to stay.

Shimmers With A Magical Touch!

This is a beautifully well written story that will get you into the Christmas spirit. It is so much more than a beautiful, cozy romance with hot chemistry and a fun, flirty, sweet connection between these two strangers. It’s full of symbolism regarding family strength and hope after loss. But it also is brimming full of what Christmas is all about. Family. Giving. Love. Selflessness. I didn’t want to put this down. From beginning to end I was consumed in this heartfelt romance, making this book a must-read that effortlessly blends humor, passion and self-discovery.

“The cocoon epitomizes both visible outer transformations and personal inner ones. It also tells us that for life to change, we must also change ourselves.”

Sweetly satisfying holiday hockey romance

MERRY PUCKING CHRISTMAS is part of Kelly Jamieson’s Bears Hockey series. Player Nils Axelsson and accountant Harley Reid meet when Harley accepts her aunt Nora’s invitation to spend Christmas with her in New York City. While her life back in small-town Ohio is fine, her recent divorce and her ex’s subsequent new relationship aren’t exactly cheering her up, and getting away from that to be with family sounds just the ticket.

Nils and Harley’s relationship is definitely a bit of insta-love, though neither is really ready to call it love. They are both cheered to discover they genuinely enjoy each other’s company, and giving Harley a chance to enjoy the Big Apple’s Christmas festivities lifts both their spirits.

Kelly Jamieson’s characters charmed me, although I confess at times I wanted to gently shake all of them. They do eventually find their way past the issues that trouble them, and it’s a sweetly satisfying journey indeed. Well done, Ms Jamieson!
