Title: Heating up the Holidays
Author: Marcia James
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Nicky and Chris were high school sweethearts, but parted unhappily. Now, thirteen years later, Chris is a widower with a six-year-old daughter. He's given up on life in the big city and has come home to stay. As luck has it, he meets Nicky while she is helping out with the Santa display at her family's department store, Paxton's, and sparks fly, not all of them nice.
I loved this story of second chances and love reignited. I also loved that Nicky Paxton is not a wilting wallflower, but a strong-willed CEO of the department store. She doesn't just get bowled over by hotshot Chris, but let's him know she's a woman to be reckoned with. Chris is humbly chastened and pursues her while trying to fulfill his daughter's Christmas wish for a special pet.
The search for the pet lets Chris and Nicky spend enough time together to overcome their fears. The story is sweet with a happy ending. I enjoyed it very much and want to know more about this special pet.
