Dylan Maxwell is a busy man. His no-nonsense approach to life and business keeps him balanced – and alone. His life is bland – devoid of any kind of sweetness or light.

An unexpected business trip close to Christmas, however, brings three people into his life he never expected. 
An oversharing teenager.
A lisping little angel.
A sexy, unassuming woman unlike any he has ever met. Her bossy attitude challenges him, while her green eyes melt the frost around his heart.
They draw out something in him that he has never experienced.
Are they the Christmas miracles he needs – or will he walk away from the sweetest gift he has ever been offered? 

I must say I’m a bit of a grump when it comes to Christmas, it takes a lot to get me in the Christmas spirit, so when the chance of reading this little number from Melanie came along I jumped at the chance, her books always bring a smile to my face, so was hoping she could work her magic and put a little Christmas spirit in me – I gotta say I really loved this story, soo good, a holiday must read!!!

Dylan Maxwell, billionaire businessman, used to being catered for in every way, getting his own way all the time, grumpy, cold, rude, demanding, and a person no-one said ‘no’ to!! He’s worked hard to get where he is today, completely committed to his work, no family life, no one who knows him except his assistant who has been with him from the start and is used to his outbursts, but she is retiring and leaving him, much to his disgust!!

A piece of land he has been after for a long time comes on the market, its the last piece in his puzzle to creating a new resort, and he just must have that land, even though he has had to agree to go meet the owner in person and spend a few days there before the owner will decided whether or not to sell – not Dylan’s usual style, but he is willing to do this in order to get what he wants. What he didn’t expect was to meet a woman who would turn his world upside down, a little girl who would make his heart melt, and a young boy about to reach manhood looking for some guidance.

Alex is a single mum and in charge of running the Sleepy Moose Inn. Life is difficult and trying at times, but she is hoping to have a nice Christmas, knowing her world is about to change as the land she lives and works on is to be sold, no if or buts about it. Dylan Maxwell is cold, demanding and aloof, with no regard for anyone but himself, yet she manages to see past this to find the man inside, vulnerable and looking for love, but they are from two very different worlds, a relationship that could never work.

This was a wonderful read, full of hope and an engaging romantic storyline that’s sure to fill you with Christmas cheer, along with the most adorable four year old you will ever meet!!! Funny, witty and heartwarming – one of the best holiday reads yet this year!!

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.
While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.
Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She’s learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
