Newly single, Heather Morgan gathers her courage and decides to take a Christmas ski vacation on her own. However, the festive holiday atmosphere reminds her how dispirited and alone she feels. When she meets a mysterious stranger, her lonely vacation takes an unexpected turn.
Sam is at the resort at the urging of his brother, who thinks he needs to get out and have a little fun. Having no desire to get involved with anyone, Sam needs a way to get his brother off his back. The intriguing Heather seems like the perfect solution to his dilemma, so he makes her an offer she can't refuse.
Sam restores the joy of the season to Heather. Their time together is magical, something she'll never forget. Soon her feelings for him deepen beyond their romantic holiday fling. But Sam has a secret, one that could prevent the fantasy from ever becoming real.
Sam's gaze drifted up, and his lips quirked. “Well, this may help my cause.”
Her glance rose to the mistletoe dangling over their heads, darted to his, then briefly down to his lips, before meeting his again. When his lingered on her mouth, a tiny hitch tightened her stomach.
“So, why do people kiss under the mistletoe?” he asked softly, his voice as mesmerizing as his eyes.
“I-I don’t know.” Her words were as breathy as they had been up on the mountain earlier. This time she couldn’t blame the altitude.
Sam tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. “Something to do with Celtic tradition, isn’t it?”
A shiver slithered down Heather’s spine. “Maybe.” She’d be hard pressed to come up with her own name right now, let alone the ancient history of some plant.
“It’s a nice tradition, don’t you think?” His thumb brushed her cheek.
Her lips parted.
“Did I ever mention I’m a very traditional guy?”
She shook her head. A wave of dizziness washed over her as he leaned closer. Her surroundings blurred, until her vision narrowed to only his rugged features drawing nearer to her in excruciatingly slow degrees.
His mouth finally closed over hers as his hand splayed across her back to draw her to him.
Sizzling Hot Book Reviews
A Christmas to Remember was one of the best Christmas books I have read in a long time. Debra St. John does such an amazing job bringing it to life. The ski resort, the Christmas theme, and the romance between Sam and Heather is brought to life for the reader.
Heather is dumped by her boyfriend just days before Christmas, so she decides to go on their planned romantic holiday at a ski resort by herself. Sam is coerced to come to the same sko resort by his brother, who thinks Sam works too hard and needs a diversion of the female kind.
They meet, fall in love, and also into bed, but Sam can’t commit to Heather because he carries a secret he thinks will drive her away anyhow. He does, however, promise to meet her Same Time Next Year like the old movie with Alan Alda.
Heather waits all year, not dating, just hoping to see Sam again, and she hopes the ending of the holidays this year will be different than last year when he left her without explanation.
Will Heather be able to handle Sam’s secret? Will Sam show up in time for Christmas? A Christmas To Remember is a cute little love story, with a predictable ending, but with a twist or two in between. A very nice fireside read, at Christmas or any time.
