Michael is desperate for a new roommate. His last roommate skipped town without paying rent, and his parents are getting tired of the constant handouts. So he puts out a roommate-wanted ad, and with a week before the new month, he’s willing to take any willing candidate. Terri seems like the perfect applicant. She has a stable job, she loves to cook big meals, and she’s kind of cute, too. Except there’s a catch: she’s actually a cross-dressing boy. And to sweeten her application, she adds that she would be interested being ‘roommates-with-benefits’.
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!

A fantastic debut novel that takes a refreshing look at family, modern life, and the joy merits of quinoa. Monday morning can't get any worse for harassed mum-of-four Jools Campbell when, after a frantic school run, she's cornered in the supermarket by pompous celebrity chef Tommy McCoy, who starts criticising the contents of her trolley. Apparently the fact that she doesn't make her own bread or buy organic is tantamount to child abuse. In a hurry and short of patience, she berates McCoy for judging her when she hasn't the time or the money to feed her family in line with his elitist ideals. Unbeknownst to Jools, her rant has been filmed and immediately goes viral on YouTube, making her a reluctant celebrity overnight.
With McCoy determined to discredit her by delving into her personal life, Jools decides it's time to fight her corner in the name of all the fraught mums out there who are fed up with being made to feel bad by food snobs like him. Armed with some fish fingers and her limited cooking repertoire, Jools must negotiate the unfamiliar world of celebrity while staying true to her instincts as a mum.
