Santa Claus is going to have a rough season… Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That’s why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. But delivering Daddies isn’t Santa’s bag.
But this Santa has a plan…
Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.
Building a house is easy. Building someone’s trust is a whole other story. But a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.

I saw this books a part of a post from one of the book readers I follow in Facebook. She posted the link and the book description. I like the book description, so I click the link and I was happy that it was Free at Kindle. So why not?
The plot was very simple and straightforward. There were no frills or beating around the bush. It was so straight that i was able to read this in a span of one hour.
It’s not like I did not enjoyed it…I did it just I’m too fast of a reader.
The opening of the book was really heartwarming. Of course it is Christmas time in the book so, it was a bit of a shock that the little girl in the story did not ask Santa for herself, but for her mother.
The scene was so cute and endearing, that the following scene was hilarious and heartbreaking. From there on, the story began to unravel.
As I said, simple. This is not a complicated read wherein you need to focus your attention just to get in to it. All you need to do is to understand why the heroine act like that, and why the hero bears the tenacious personality.
All in all, this is one of those CR reads that i enjoy reading. After reading PNR, it’s nice to read something like this every now and then.
