All Mandy Carson wants for Christmas is a distraction…and maybe a date to her friend’s New Year’s Eve wedding. Ghosts from the past always loom larger this time of year, and Mandy’s having a hard time faking her usual fun-loving demeanor. But when her much-needed distraction arrives in the form of the man who rocked her world the long-ago night of their junior prom, she’s forced to confront the painful scars that caused her to bolt back in high school.

Wildlife rescuer Calvin Rocha always regretted letting Mandy slip out of his life, so when fate brings them together on a snowy mountain road with an injured hawk on Christmas Eve, he’s determined to make the most of this second chance. He agrees to be her wedding date, hoping the romantic weekend will bring them back together. And as the clock counts down to midnight, Cal and Mandy might just discover that the best gift they’ll receive this season is each other.


Short, sexy and oh so sweet! A sweet novella taking place around the holidays does a great job of wrapping up Rachel Lacey’s Risking It All series as well as tying in her newest Almost Royal series so we get a glimpse into two worlds at once! The characters were as well developed as they can be in a novella length book, and the plot, though fast paced, was sweet and enjoyable.

Mandy Carson finds herself taking a walk down memory lane when she least expects it when she runs into Calvin Rocha by chance. The sexy wildlife rehabilitator rocked her world once upon a time before life sent them in different directions. She’s trying to bury the past by enjoying the holiday season and the upcoming wedding she’s attending.

Cal had a crush on Mandy long before their one night of passion and he’s regretted letting her slip through his fingers many times over the years. He’s happy to step up and offer to be her date to this wedding if it means getting some one on one time with her again. She might only be looking for right now, but he’s hoping to convince her to take a look at forever!
