"Heating Up The Holidays" is a book I really enjoyed. I liked how Nicky was not afraid to speak what she thought but she was kind also. And Chris was kind and protective and cared a lot. I liked how Chris and Nicky got back together. The romantic scenes were exciting. Holly was Chris's little girl and she was cute and fun. I liked their family's set-up and the Christmas parts made this a fun feel good book. I am glad that Chris and Nicky talked things out and made their holiday and future much more bright.
Nicky Paxton is up to her pointed elf ears in work—filling in for a sick Santa’s helper, corralling kittens in a mechanical winter wonderland and running her family’s department store chain. With only twelve shopping days until Christmas, the last thing she needs is the return of her high school heart-breaker.
Lawyer and single dad Chris Spencer leaves the Los Angeles rat race to raise his five-year-old daughter, Holly, in his sleepy Virginia hometown. His first goal is to make sure Holly has a Christmas to remember. His carefully laid plans don’t include a second chance with his first love.
When Holly asks the store Santa for a “fairy pony puppy”, Chris enlists Nicky’s help to track down the elusive item. Despite Nicky’s resolve not to re-gift her heart to Chris, their sexual attraction could power the town’s holiday light display. With the help of mistletoe, a hairless dog and a lonely child, Chris and Nicky just might get their Christmas desires.
