MAID UNDER THE MISTLETOE
By USA Today bestselling author
‘Tis the season for a sexy holiday!
Single mom Joy Curran needs this temporary holiday housekeeping job working for a reclusive billionaire. But her sexy, aloof boss pulls at Joy's heartstrings—and her long-denied desires—in unexpected ways…
Sam Henry never got over the loss of his wife and son, and he's shut himself off from happiness, love—and the holidays. But Joy and her sweet daughter bring laughter into his life. And living with his new maid ignites a passion he can't ignore. After one glorious night in Joy's arms, will this beauty be the Christmas miracle that changes the beast forever?
Review: If you read one Christmas romance this year, this is the one you absolutely have to read.
Maureen Child, Hallmark Channel is calling, this book has to be made into a Christmas movie. It absolutely has to!!
I'm not sure how this book ended up in the Desire line, because the heat level is low, but to be perfectly honest, I don't think I would have loved it as much as I did. Joy's daughter Holly is really the star of the show. She's absolutely precious and its really her, that draws Sam out of his cranky anti-social shell that he imposed on himself when tragedy struck him several years prior.
Holly's love of puppies and fairies and her absolutely sweet nature chip away at his shell, which in turn opens his heart to Joy, who is falling hard for him. When they build a fairy house...well, my heart just filled to bursting.
How can you not fall in love with this brooding hero?
There's no arrogance in this man, just a man that's hurting, a lot.
This book gave me faith in romances again, but that's to be expected, because Maureen Child tends to write the best Harlequins. This one is staying on my shelf.
