International bestselling author Rhian Cahill kicks off a steamy new holiday series about a very Christmassy company and the three directors who need more than a little mistletoe.
Jack had a great reason to be over Christmas: it’s not seasonal blues, it’s his family business, and there’s only so much tinsel you can have in your life without feeling bah humbug about it.
But this year is different. He’s home after a long absence, with fences to mend, bridges to build and a commitment to change he intends to keep.
Elle loves Christmas, and she is not about to let an arrogant Scrooge like Jack Frost ruin it for her. He might have her libido flashing like fairy lights, but she’s been burned by a guy on the rebound before and she doesn’t need a Boxing Day-bargain boyfriend.
But there’s more than a little magic in mistletoe, and it may just see Elle and Jack ringing in a very happy new year.
I first discovered Aussie Author Rhian Cahill last year around Christmas time and quickly devoured her Christmas and New Year novellas. So this year when I discovered she had a new Christmas novella out, I simply had to have it and it didn’t disappoint.
Every year I make this HUGE list of Christmas books I want to read and yet somehow every year I barely make a mark on the list as I have a tendency to leave too many to too late. This is part of the reason why I love the Christmas novellas that flood the market each year. Short by definition and thus a guareenteed quick read full of Christmas cheer and holiday spirit I rely on this books to get me through the busy period of December retail period and to pick me up when my Christmas Spirit is sometimes lacking. With each themed novella, I find myself smiling like a lunatic as I read about lovers reunited, and people who’ve just met celebrating a special moment under the mistletoe or a family meal. They just make me happy.
A Touch of Frost is the story of Elle and Jack, who meet at work just prior to Santa’s Village opening for the year. Elle is a free spirit, who manages the place and loves Christmas. Jack isn’t sure what he’s doing there and is used to corporate law, so the atmosphere and world of the Christmas themed play centre is a as foreign to him as another language. Taking notes from the book, he’s not happy with how the staff are goofing off before open and is just starting to get worked up about it when he firsts sees and meet Elle, quickly he finds himself falling for the woman before him, and the rest they say is history.
At 53 pages, there’s no doubt that A Touch of Frost is a quick, fun an flirty read. It’s the perfect kind of book to read when you have a spare few moments at Christmas and want something light and fun. I will warn you however, although the author doesn’t go into as much detail as some, the romance in this novella is closer to the steamer side of the scale with the characters clothing disappearing very early in the book. Ultimately though, A Touch of Frost is a fun holiday romance read that is bound to have you feeling festive.
