THE WINNER IS....................................LISA WILLIAMS

The Reluctant Santa

Book Blurb:
Colin McDermott has one last chance to get Christmas right. Since his mother dropped him off on Christmas Eve never to return, Colin has hated Christmas and sworn never to have children. But this year fate is giving him everything he didn't want. A Santa suit, a child and a chance at love again.

From the Book:

He moved to the side and Brooke felt her mouth fall to the floor.
Oh Damn! Oh Damn! Oh my God, she hadn’t seen that face in years.
There in front of her stood her college sweetheart, the man she'd thought she would marry. The man she’d fallen in love with and dreamed of spending the rest of her life with until that fateful day when he’d rejected her, and unknowingly, the baby she’d carried.
Tall, strikingly handsome, muscular, with a boyish grin and sparkling honey-warm eyes, Colin McDermott grinned at her like she was lunch and he was starving.
Colin stared in disbelief at Brooke Warren, the girl who'd dumped him in college. Right before graduation, she’d abruptly stopped seeing him, refused his telephone calls and disappeared from campus. Later, he’d learned she had finished her exams and hadn’t waited on graduation but immediately left town, leaving him bitter and disillusioned.
Shocked, he studied her as the memory of that time seemed to rise from the shadows. Didn't he deserve an explanation? A reason why she'd ended their relationship so abruptly that she couldn't even say good-bye?
Memories of the way her gorgeous red hair had fallen across his shoulders when he’d made love to her flashed through his mind and left him aching.
Yeah, he'd do her again given half the chance. This time, he’d just disengage his heart. Because she'd left his fragile organ bloodied, bruised, and sporting a no admittance sign.
Emerald eyes focused on him in surprise as she held out her hand. All the anger at her disappearance threatened to surface and choke him, but he pushed it down deep. He needed this sale, even if it meant kissing up to the girl who’d lied and said she loved him one moment and played Houdini the next.

Angie E's Review:

This has got to be the SWEETEST holiday book EVER! I LOVE the blast from the past type stories and Colin gets a HUGE blast. Lol. I got so into the story of Brooke, Olivia and Colin I totally forgot that Gabriella and Devon had a story going on as well. I enjoyed how the author took me away and drew me into the story so deep that I forgot about other characters. When Colin finds out about Olivia, I was on pins and needles. BITING NAILS NERVOUS at his reaction. It was an emotional part of the story. I love watching how his relationship with Olivia and Brooke grew. It was touching. I laughed, had a few tears, and smiled a lot during this book. A few time I felt downright HATRED for Devon, but Gabriella was “a breathe of fresh air”. When Colin learned of his past was probably one of the most emotional parts (HAVE TISSUES HANDY). The SPARK between Colin and Brooke is undeniable after all these years and Sylvia can write one HECK OF A LOVE SCENE *fans self* .
"10% goes to Puppy Rescue Mission. They bring home dogs from Iraq and Afghanistan that our soldiers have adopted. The stories of these dogs and the men who love them is amazing. They help our solders with PTS.  Check out Puppy Rescue Mission on Facebook. It takes about $1000 to ship a dog home from Iraq or Afghanistan. I can't imaging leaving behind a dog I'd become attached to, who'd helped through bad days and comforted me when I missed home".    - Sylvia McDaniel
