DESPERATELY SEEKING SANTA
Red Rose Publishing
Rating: 4 Cups
Mandy is a girl from the wrong side of the tracks made good. She has risen through the ranks at her company to become assistant manager, and is line for the manager’s position. Memories of her almost marriage spur her onward.
Tate is the son of a successful businessman and his aristocratic wife. After being left at the altar on Christmas, he started his own business and is a success in his own right. He can not forget or forgive his former love.
Forced into the humiliating position of having to wear a skimpy costume as Mrs. Claus on Christmas Eve, when the hired one is too drunk to work, matters only get worse when Mandy and the very sexy Santa are locked in the store overnight. Santa turns out to be her former fiancé, and it turns out that the feelings they once had for each other are still very much alive.
I really liked the premise of this story: two people being locked into a store on Christmas Eve during a snowstorm. Mandy and Tate have a lot of feelings, both good and bad about each other, and neither knows the whole story. Their mothers have a lot to answer for. The love scenes between the two are scorchers and the Mrs. Claus outfit makes for a few chuckles. This is a great holiday story.
