Heat up your holiday with some sexy suspense…
Everyone in town thinks that Jemma White is as sweet as the delicious treats she makes at her chocolate shop—but they’re wrong. Jemma is ready to let her wild side out, and she’s just found the perfect man to make all of her fantasies come true.
Grayson Cole is a too-sexy-to-be-true stranger who has escaped to Holly for the holidays. He is her perfect temptation, and Jemma can’t wait to steam up the cold winter nights with him. But when danger from Grayson’s past follows him to town, she realizes that the man she is falling for has been keeping some very dark secrets…secrets that may just get them both killed.
Author’s Note: CHRISTMAS WITH A SPY is a sexy holiday romance with a touch of suspense. It was originally published as THE SPY WHO CAME FOR CHRISTMAS in the ALL HE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS collection back in 2015, but it is now available as a stand-alone title.
If you’re looking for a sweet like chocolate Christmas reading treat then this could be the short book for you. Chocolate, romance and bit of danger thrown in for good measure, what’s not to like. Who wouldn’t want a hero to come rescue them when the need arises?
Jemma is all ready to close up her chocolate shop having had enough for one day when something sweeter than everything combined walks right in. A fantasy come to life in the form of Grayson. He might just be meeting a friend but soon sees the merit for them picking this shop in town. One look at this handsome stranger and she is starting to want to let her hair down and have a little fun. Good job he feels the same by asking her out.
Grayson might seem sweet and sexy but he has a secret, one that might be about to bring some trouble to the quiet town of Holly. He needed a break and when an old friend, the Sheriff, told him to come if he ever needed to get away he finally jumped at the idea. Never more glad after seeing the lovely Jemma. He can see that she has some secrets of her own and longs for her to trust him and tell all.
Chemistry flying as high as the sparks but nothing ever runs that smoothly. Danger following one or the other causes a stir so I guess it’s a good job Grayson has that protective streak in him as it looks like he’s going to need it to keep Jemma safe.
A fun quick read that had romance and suspense mixed together to create an interesting story. Chocolate too and that can’t hurt! Getting you hooked on the town and making you want to get to know all the other people in town, especially the Sheriff. Time to book a trip to Holly soon I think.
