The mistletoe is out, and the gloves are off . . .
'Tis the worst season to be single, but Kara Hastings won't
let a little Christmas funk spoil the festive season. Sure,
running her own bakery is a little harder than she expected,
but she can handle it. And she'll prove it to a certain
infuriatingly handsome, bossy Big City guy. She may be sugar
and spice, but she can kick his butt twice.
Nate Griffin is in Briar Creek only for the holidays, and he
refuses to fall for the whole "small town, candy
cane-scented Christmas Wonderland" thing. He's more
interested in the fresh-faced cookie chef who always knows
exactly how to get under his skin. So when Nate challenges
Kara in the town's big holiday contest, it's not just the
competition that starts to heat up. If he's not careful,
Kara won't just melt his icy resolve against a small-town
Christmas . . . she'll melt his heart too.
