It Must Be Christmas

Three Holiday Stories

This book contains three very different stories by three excellent authors. None of the stories are

connected and each is totally unique. The only thing that ties them together is they are all set at

Christmas. They are all contemporary romance and contain either a SEAL or a special agent. What is great is if you don’t like one story, there is always the other two to try. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed two of the stories and the other was just okay. None were bad. Though none of the stories were terribly long, all had fairly developed characters and a firm plot. From chaos to heart-warming, each story brings something to the table.

Hot Toy starts off this book. You know that toy that you have to have for Christmas. This is a story

about that and Chinese agents who use toys to send codes. You’re not sure who to trust until near the end. Figuring out who to trust involves defensive spray and drunk sisters.

And, if you ever needed a sweet heartwarming story, Christmas at Seashell Cottage is perfect. An

abandon baby is found in a manger by the local doctor and a retired Navy SEAL. Not only do they bond with the baby, but they bond with each other. However, they have different life plans. Can they figure it out?

This book is followed by Christmas with the Billionaire Rancher. At first I was confused as to why Chloe needed money but that was soon revealed. The romance that follows their first meeting is a wild ride that I loved. Misunderstandings happen and brotherly love offers a quick knock in the head.

The second two books are both part of a series but you don’t have to be reading either series to enjoy both stories. They may have you wanting to read more in them though.
