Holly Hart is a sweet and unassuming woman, lover of all things Christmas. She has always been sure of two facts since she got old enough to understand life: it was scientifically impossible she could meet someone who could make her sick of the Season to be Jolly and most of all, she was never ever going to meet a man who would make her wish to change her permanent status from nice to naughty, but this Christmas is about to prove her wrong, because she is going to meet both in the huge, hunky and sexy person of Xander Halls, billionaire CEO of Halls Tech. Xander is currently her major client and the absolute bane of her existence. Apparently, he doesn’t know the meaning of the word “no” even though he is so fond of barking it in her face. She is pretty sure he could make Santa’s elves cry with a single well-placed glare and yet she can’t stop from gaping at him. Throwing a Christmas party is Holly’s ultimate vocation, but Xander is arrogant, brooding, unsociable and bossy and he is making things impossible for her. The stubborn bastard hasn’t got a single ounce of peace on Earth and good will to men to spare for her! It seems no matter what Holly does or says, Xander has to contradict her. Veto should be his freaking middle name or Grinch, maybe —yes, that would work too. All he wants for Christmas seems to be driving Holly nuts. She should hate the sight of him, but boy, the man can kiss and looks like sex on a stick or better yet: a candy cane she can’t stop herself from drooling over! The more Xander bosses her around, pissing her off and looking at her with those killer baby blues that could incinerate mistletoe and melt snow —if Phoenix would be bed with any, that is—, the more she wants him hanging his stocking all over her and trimming her Christmas tree with his own hot brand of decorations, way better than those bought at Tiffany’s! Dear Reader: This is a standalone, no cheating and HEA-guaranteed holiday marshmallowy-sweet novella with a secret punch, where NAUGHTY might even be wrapped-up in NICE, but it’s still definitely there. Bad things are about to be flagged on Santa’s list around here, ‘cause it looks like this kindle-melting alpha is one Halls this Holly will have some trouble decking! Get tangled in this intricate mess more than you do when attempting to unravel strings of twinkling lights. You won’t regret it and your Christmas this year will not only be more bright, but tropical hot too! *ahem* sweetie, either you’re naughty or nice, you’ll still get a super cute —and downright dirty— Christmassy surprise at the end of the book in just a couple of clicks, don’t miss out!

Call it the forgotten rivalry. The Cincinnati Reds and the Los Angeles Dodgers may not share geographical boundaries, and today they don't even play in the same division, but for a period of time in the 1970s Dodgers vs. Reds was the best rivalry in Major League Baseball. They boasted the biggest names of the game--Johnny Bench, Steve Garvey, Pete Rose, Don Sutton, and Ron Cey, to name a few--and appeared in the World Series seven out of nine years. In Cincinnati Red and Dodger Blue: Baseball's Greatest Forgotten Rivalry, Tom Van Riper provides a fresh look at these two powerhouse teams and the circumstances that made them so pivotal. Van Riper delves into the players, managers, executives, and broadcasters from the rivalry whose impact on baseball continued beyond the 1970s--including the first recipient of Tommy John surgery (Tommy John himself), the all-time hit king turned gambling pariah (Pete Rose), and two young announcers who would soon go on to national prominence (Al Michaels and Vin Scully).
In addition, Van Riper recounts in detail the 1973 season when both teams were at or near their peak form, particularly the extra-inning nail-biter between the Reds and Dodgers that took place on September 21 and effectively decided the divisional race. Cincinnati Red and Dodger Blue includes never-before-published interviews with former players from the rivalry, providing a personal and in-depth look at this decade in baseball full of upheaval and change. Baseball's realignment in 1994 may have rendered this great rivalry nearly forgotten, but its story is one that will be enjoyed by baseball fans and historians of all generations.
