For a man called Chris Kringle, Christmas is the most magical time of the year.  But this year, there’s something about a certain elf that’s grabbed his attention in the best of ways. 

Leah Ward didn’t start the day intending to be an elf in Santa’s Village, but to help her sister she’d do anything, including an impersonation and squeezing into a too-tight elf suit.  But Leah didn’t count on the boss discovering her deception – or that he’d be enchanted by it. She certainly didn’t count on Chris deciding all his future kisses would belong to her.

A firm believer in Christmas magic, Chris knows the sparks that fly when he meets Leah are the once-in-a-lifetime kind, and he sees no point in wasting any time. All he has to do is convince a soft-hearted cynic that all magic is real – and that Christmas magic is the most powerful of all.

Review

Shortly after finishing A Touch Of Frost I found out that there was another book in the series and I had to get my hands on it. Turns out it was on Netgalley so I immediately requested a copy.

This book follows Chris and Leah. Chris is one of the owners of Frosty’s Snowmen and is in charge of the hiring and firing. Chris is confused when he notices an elf he didn’t hire. No one else is involved in the hiring so he starts to worry.

Leah’s sister had interviewed for the role of the elf but when her daughter is sick on her first day Leah offers to step in and take her place.

When Chris meets Leah he falls for her hard and isn’t afraid to tell her. Leah is a little overwhelmed at first with Chris’ honesty but she agrees to dinner.

I enjoyed this festive novella and hope there will be more to come from Rhian.

About Rhian Cahill

Rhian Cahill is the alter ego of a stay-at-home mother of four. With motherly duties rapidly dwindling Rhian is able to make use of the fertile imagination she used to keep herself sane for all those years of slavery. Having spent some years living overseas and visiting tropical climates has helped inspire some steamy stories. Multi-published in erotic romance, Rhian, with the help of Mr. Muse, spends her days and nights writing.
When not glued to the keyboard you’ll find her book in hand avoiding any and all housework as much as possible.

This Christmas

This year, if Hadley wrote her dream Christmas list, it would go something like this: 1. Spend every waking – and sleeping – moment with her incredibly gorgeous boyfriend, Will. 2.

Enjoy a sparkling Christmas in New York City, gazing at the Rockefeller tree, going ice skating, and drinking steaming mugs of cocoa in Central Park.
