Anna Wesley stops by the office late on Christmas Eve to pick up a decoration for her grandfather. She sees that her new marketing assistant, Cole Mansfield is still there. She gives in to the impulse to invite him home with her for the evening. After all, nobody should be alone on Christmas Eve.
Cole is a man with a secret. He told Anna he wants her job eventually, but that isnít the truth. He hesitates before accepting Annaís offer. He has not viewed her as a woman until tonight. He finds her extremely attractive, and realizes she feels the same.
This is the first time Anna has brought a man home with her. Her family naturally assumes he is her boyfriend. She tries, though not very hard, to fight the impression, but Cole doesnít cooperate at all. He canít seem to keep his hands off her.
Darlene Gardner has written a fun, sexy book about what happens when we donít wish, but still get what we want for Christmas. The chemistry between Cole and Anna is hot enough to melt snow, and her family members are delightful. If you like your Christmas stories spicy this is the book for you.
