I truly enjoyed this book!! It was a great feel good Christmas romance and a marriage of convenience story. Carina Briscoe and her family run The Texas Hill Country Resort an elite events and wedding destination that boosts "The Mistletoe Effect". Any marriage there during the month of December lasts forever. James "Decker" Decker Forman of the Briscoe stable has been Carina's dream and resident bad boy for ten years. Haylie, Carina's sister is getting married to kick off this years "Mistletoe Effect" but gets mad at her husband to be and storms out of the chapel. With the church filled with on lookers and Wedding magazines reporter and photo journalist the Mistletoe Effect is about to implode. Carina and Decker become the sacrificial lambs and enter in to a sham of a marriage. Decker agrees with one request...they spends the month as true husband and wife and Carina in his bed. Decker is one hot cowboy!!!

One steamy Christmas!!!
Carina and Decker are pushed together and try to make the most and the best of their situation. Do they EVER! Decker is one hot cowboy in his Wranglers and cowboy hat. Now that he has what he wants, he needs to figure out how to keep it. He has a special way of pushing Carina to take what she wants out of life and she wants him but he's leaving after the holidays for a new job 4 hours away. She's also been offered a job on the west coast. Will they ask each other to go or will they go their separate ways?
I do love a sexy cowboy! Thank you Melissa Cutler for this fantastic Christmas romance. I look forward to reading more from this very talented author.
