Jingle Spells Short Story Collection

I adore Christmas, and I have been totally loving reading all the new Christmas romances that have come out this year, but I have to admit that this is my first real paranormal Christmas book. And I adored it. It was so much better then I could have ever expected. I have heard of most of these authors before, so I had faith that this was going to be a good read, and I’m glad I picked it up. This collection of stories all takes place in the same world, and each author tackled the romance on one sibling in a family of wizards who are basically responsible for Christmas and all that goes with it. Naughty or Nice? by Vicki Lewis Thompson So this is about Cole, CEO of Evergreen Industries (the cover operation for the wizard family) and his college girlfriend Taryn. Taryn it seems is a hacker and she hacks into the Evergreen database, so Cole hires her to fix the holes in his system. Of course Taryn and Cole have a lot of unresolved history, and Tayrn is determined to get the answers to the questions that she’s been carrying around for years.

I digress. I liked Ivy, she definitely goes for the wrong kinds of guys, which is how she ended up back in her small hometown trying to do some repair to her public image. She made it big off a song called “Size Matters” written about her ex, and while it wasn’t about the size of what was in his pants, I don’t think she minded that everyone thought it was. Although she did feel a bit bad when the media figured out it was him (can’t help but feel bad for Blake on that one). Blake hasn’t had it easy, but he has really made the best of the situation. He made a mistake when he was with Ivy and he lost her for it, and then he had to deal with the song that made her famous. And then of course his future didn’t work out when he injured himself, and that’s how he ended up back in his small town. But he seems to have made his life turn […]
