The Yuletide season brings something très magnifique to Austin, Texas, in the form of sexy French entrepreneur Amersen Beaudin. The sexy but standoffish playboy has zero interest in meeting his newly discovered Fortune relatives, least of all the man who is his biological father. But when matriarch Kate Fortune dangles an all-too-attractive business proposition, he is too intrigued to stay away. And once he meets Kate's beautiful gardener, Robin Harbin, he starts to rethink his holiday plans…

A spicy affair with the blonde, blue-eyed Texan is now at the top of Amersen's wish list. But all Robin wants for Christmas is the flirty Parisian's heart and soul. Can she convince him that love—and family—can lead to a joyeux Noël?


Sparks fly and tension mounts as temptation arrives on her doorstep! A great continuation to the Fortunes of Texas series. If you’ve read any of these books previously, you know the premise … and more illegitimate siblings are coming out of the woodwork every time we turn around. The characters were enticing and kept us entertained as their story played out. The plot was fun and fast moving. The only downside of this delightful book for me was the haste in which they reached their happily ever after … overall, a real pleasure to read!

Frenchman Amersen Beaudin has no interest in meeting his newly found Fortune family, but when Kate Fortune contacts him for a seemingly unrelated business venture, he is intrigued enough to make the trip to Austin, Texas to see what she has in mind. He’s planning a quick in and out visit so he doesn’t run into any of his half siblings who have been reaching out to him, but the second he sets eyes on the vision in white outside Kate’s home, he might be rethinking the rush!

Gardener Robin Harbin might be attracted at first glance to the handsome visitor, but the last thing she needs is another womanizing man! She can tell he’s interested by his heated perusal, but there’s no way she will allow herself to be interested in this playboy! She finds he’s persistent though, and after a few times spent getting to know the man beneath the exterior, she finds she likes him way more than she should … can she convince him that love isn’t as bad as he seems to think it is?
