A red-hot holiday
Pro football publicist Martha Blue has something to prove. To protect the image of the Las Vegas Slayer-and stay employed-she has to shed her party-girl reputation. Fast! So no more mistakes. No further scandals. And absolutely no falling for the one man who can give her everything she wants…and nothing of what she needs.
Danger and desire never mixed well for undefeated prizefighter Joaquin Ryder. A friend of the Blue family, he’s a man who knows his boundaries…boundaries he has secretly crossed only once before. Now that he’s back in Sin City to train for the biggest fight of his career, he can’t afford to let a sexy distraction like Martha put him against the ropes. Revisiting their sizzling past is something he isn’t willing to risk-until a steamy Yuletide encounter, where for just one night, they’ll surrender completely…
Sleigh bells. Crisp, pine-scented breezes. Mistletoe. These are all tiny somethings I adore at Christmastime. Beyond that is what I treasure most: hope. During my journey with Just for Christmas Night, I lost someone who was precious to me-and I spent countless hours grieving. In myriad ways, I still am. But I believe in little miracles, in hidden blessings and holiday magic. I believe that on the other side of the unknown and the unexpected, of changes and surprises, are hope and opportunity.
The wildest of the Blue daughters, freewheeling flirt Martha, has plans for herself. But as her life jumps the rails, she gets a spectacular holiday surprise of her own: brooding boxing champ Joaquin Ryder. Watching Martha and Joaquin figure each other out showed me just how steam the holidays can be!
Here’s to hope, opportunity and little miracles.
