MISTLETOE MAGIC

Major Mark Riley plays Court Jester to Janelle Walsh's Snow Queen at the Christmas Parade and is instantly captivated by the cute redhead whose grandpa just happens to be Santa. When Mark learns she's the tenant he evicted from his newly purchased property, it's going to take a little bit of Santa's mistletoe magic to save their romance.

EXCERPT:

She gave him a quick half-smile and sidestepped toward the wagon. “It was nice to meet you, Major. Thanks for doing such a great job as the jester.”

“You’re welcome, and you can call me Mark, you know.”

“Major’s safer.”

The briefest flash of consternation in her expression told him she hadn’t meant to say that out loud. When her foot landed on the step so she could pull herself up into the driver’s seat, Mark caught her arm and turned her around. She grabbed hold of his shoulder to keep her balance on the narrow step.

“If I don’t do this, it’s going to drive me crazy until I see you again,” he told her in a low voice.

Her throat muscles worked in a hard swallow. “Do what?” A downward flick of her gaze said she knew the answer to her own question.

He let his mouth relax in a slow, confidant smile. One step closer brought him close enough to brace a hand against the wagon on either side of her. “I gotta tell you, pretty as you were as the Snow Queen, elf suits you better—although I do miss those cute, pointy little ears.”

She rolled her eyes. “Oh, please.”

He took a moment to let his gaze roam over her face. Snow drifted down silently and their breath mingled in the frigid air. Mark drew out the anticipation of what was to come, enjoying the awareness that warmed the space between them.

“You look like Christmas,” he murmured.

One corner of her mouth twitched. “I’m guessing it’s the costume.”

He shook his head and reached up to twirl a red curl around his finger, watching the silky length wind against his skin before holding her gaze with his. “Red and green, and all wrapped up like a delicious, cinnamon scented present.”

She laughed softly.

Mark closed the remaining few inches, pressing the length of his body to hers. “In fact, I think I need to go find Santa and tell him I’ve been a real good boy this year.”

He spoke the last words a hairsbreadth away from her lips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Christmas romance This was a good romance to read at Christmas time. Mark Riley and Janelle Walsh met when they were last minute fill-ins for the Court Jester and Snow Queen parts in the Christmas Parade. Their attraction for each other was a problem when they realized Mark was the new owner of the property Jannelle used for rescue animals and was evicting her on Christmas Eve. This Christmas story definitely helped put me in the holiday spirit with the mistletoe, parade and Santa Butch. Janelle is a loving woman who cares deeply for the animals in the rescue center and everyone else in her life. She's a smart, hard working woman and very far from the old lady Mark thought ran the animal rescue. After leaving the military, Mark bought property in the small town of Pulaska planning on building a resort to bring tourists and their money to the area. It's a good idea but doesn't work with Jannelle's plans. He's a good guy who is kind and charming most of the time. But sometimes he's short tempered and not so easy to be with. Are Jannelle and Mark going to be able to build on their feelings? Maybe Santa Butch and some mistletoe will help them resolve their property problems and find romance.
