Ian has likewise been warned not to mess with Tessa's vulnerable feelings. The pair take the reader on a delightfully fun tour of Seattle, one of the highlights of this story!

Since Ian is returning to Scotland in a matter of days and their relationship doesn't have a future, they are each torn about pursuing it further. When they throw caution to the wind and decide to become romantically involved, the story steams up and becomes highly erotic and hotly sexy! How will they bear the pain when Ian must leave???
In The Single Girl's Guide to Christmas by Jennifer Ashley, Angel is about a highly-acclaimed journalist who gives self-help advice meant to empower single women. After being humiliated on national television by a mean-spirited talk-show host, Angel returns to California to spend Christmas in the bosom of her large, supportive but quite overbearing, family. When a stranded motorist rings the family's doorbell asking for help, Angel is surprised to be staring into the face of the handsome vintner she shared a thoroughly satisfying romance and friendship with 5 years earlier. She often wondered if she made a huge mistake pushing Sean away when when she headed to New York to pursue her career dreams, especially considering that she hasn't connected in the same way with any other man since. Sean has no Christmas plans so Angel's family invites him to join their celebration, not knowing of the past he and Angel shared. Now, as Angel and Sean rediscover each other and re-evaulate their choices, Angel faces some heavy competition for Sean's affections from her sexually aggressive cousin Cerise. This homecoming, and facing her past, teaches Angel priceless lessons about men, love, family support and what's truly important in life.
In O Little Town of Kettlebean by Naomi Neale, Broadway stage manager Riley and wardrobe manager Angel, have traveled to upstate New York to bring back has-been Broadway actor from his drunken escapade in time for the show's opening on December 26. Their van breaks down in the rural town of Kettlebean, and the mechanic Hector and his son Leo slow down their efforts to fix it in the hopes that the trio will put a professional spin on their town's Christmas pageant. Not happy with the delay, Riley adopts a humbug attitude, but the attractive Leo finds a way to soften her heart. I sort of plodded through this story - while full of Christmas spirit, it was neither as interesting nor as funny as the previous two fast-paced and very sexy ones.
