Back Cover Blurb:
Catarina Merrill has had quite a year—with the shotgun marriage and the baby on the way—but she certainly never expected to desire her husband as much as she does. Dreaming up naughty, sensual things she'd like to try with him is easy, but actually telling him about her fantasies is hard. So Catarina comes up with a plan to act out her deepest desires—only not as herself...
Jace Merrill knows his wife is itching for something. Trouble is, he can't figure out what that is. But when just before Christmas he finds a stranger in his bedroom—one wearing his wife's face—he's eager to play a game of seduction with her, just so long as they play so that they both win...
But Jace and Catarina will discover that desire—and love—can't flourish behind disguises. And that Christmas is a time for giving, not games—no matter how sinful...
It was a short, sweet return to one of my favourite couples in historical romance. The characters aren’t overly developed here, the author assuming readers have read the 1st novel in the series. That said, even if you haven’t, you do get to know them well enough to enjoy the story on its own.
This short story was a cute & spicy look at Cat & Jace’s married life. It is a look at Christmas the way it should be, and then some.
