This holiday themed anthology is sugary sweet!

Beth Monroe is on the run… from her feelings! The feelings Levi Masterson, her ex-fiancé's best friend, invokes in her. After discovering her fiancé cheating on her, Beth wanted to hit back, so she used Levi. It was only supposed to be sex, not a wild, lusty weekend of new emotions and discoveries. Now, Beth is determined to leave Levi in the dust, but he is not having it in Lori Foster's The Christmas Present.

Always a sexy storyteller, The Christmas Present is a fun, typical Foster story.

In Karen Kelley's It's a Wonderful Life, movie star and playboy Jeremy Hunter needs to clean up his image for his upcoming movie in which he portrays a traveling preacher. Jeremy's agent suggests going incognito as a preacher and seeing if he can pull it off. Becoming Trey Jones seems to be going well until an accident in Two Creeks, Texas, sends him into a tailspin, and into the guesthouse of Bailey Tanner, fourth grade teacher and all around woman. Suddenly, Jeremy is getting the education in love and life he never expected.

Karen Kelley charms and touches the heart in this small town romance.

Finally, Dianne Castell introduces readers to LuLu Cahill and jilted groom Sebastian Moore in Home for Christmas. After being dumped and left pregnant by her ex-boyfriend, LuLu is definitely not in the holiday mood. A spontaneous tryst with Sebastian, aka Handsome, leaves her feeling a tiny more cheerful but it is certainly not an answer to her problems. She never expects to see him again, but suddenly they are being thrown together by well meaning relatives. A natural attraction may lead to something more for this jilted pair.

Another warmhearted story; LuLu and Sebastian definitely have enough heat between them to keep the cold winter at bay.

All in all, I'm Your Santa is an adequate read. None of these stories is particularly original or extraordinary, but they do provide a pleasant afternoon of reading and will certainly help you relax in the busy holiday season.
