I love books! I also write them. FYI: I use this space for recs of books I wholeheartedly love only. My recs are honest, but I have social relationships with some of the romance authors whose books I rec.
Full disclosure: Susanna is my critique partner.
A sweet, passionate, charming (and festive!) Christmas novella. I loved Cat immediately and she and Gabe deal with a painful and complicated situation (Gabe was sent into the army 5 years ago because he and Cat were found in a compromising situation, and now he's back for Christmas and she's engaged to someone else) with surprising maturity. Also Gabe's adorable orphan is SUPER adorable. And Cat's Boring Fiancé wasn't boring at all! A+++++
