What if the legend of Santa Claus is in fact, true? What if Santa has five big strapping sons who help him run his empire? Five single, sexy sons looking for romance...
Nicholas Klaus is a master pastry chef, a strict disciplinarian, and the eldest son of the legendary Santa Claus. One look at café owner Lucy Brewster sends him into an unexpected tailspin of lusty desires. When Lucy is injured, Nicholas makes a decision that catapults both of their lives into turmoil ....
Lucy Brewster, the free-spirited proprietor of Sweet Inspiration, has a flair for concocting sugary confections but no time for adventure. She gets more than she bargained for when she awakens in the North Pole...rambunctious elves, a fitness-obsessed Santa, and the man of her dreams. Does she have what it takes to become the next Mrs. Klaus?
“Surrounded by howling winds and a relentless fall of snow, Nicholas Klaus studies the storefront across the street.”
This was a very enjoyable holiday read! I was looking for something fun and easy with a bit of magic and a dash of romance and this book completely delivered.
In this book we are introduced to the delightful Klaus family and the eldest son Nicholas who is destined to take on the reins of “Santa” when his father retires. Sadly for Nicholas, however, his true love lies in cooking rather than toy production and delivery and when he falls in love with a baker from the South…it throws all of the North Pole into a bit of a talespin!
I loved all of the characters in this tale from the independent Lucy, to the moody Nicholas, his band of younger brothers and his delightful parents. The pacing of the novel is perfect and the author’s descriptions of the North Pole are simply magical. Add in a healthy dose of some steamy romance and it’s a perfect read for a cold winter’s eve!
I recommend this to anyone who is looking for a fun quick holiday read and who doesn’t mind the steamy bits!
