All the billionaire wants for Christmas is her, in his bed!

Smouldering Dante Acosta has got to be physiotherapist Jess’s sexiest client yet. Even injured, the playboy polo champion exudes a raw power that makes Jess giddy…until she discovers he’s bought her parents’ farm out from under her!

Jess’s indignation only adds fuel to the fire raging between them, as they try — and fail — to resist each other. Dante is prepared to fight for their chemistry this Christmas — is he prepared to fight for Jess’s heart?


Captivating and delicious! With a return to her heated Acosta’s! series Susan Stephens brings Dante to the forefront as he deals with an attraction he can’t resist. The storyline was interesting and though the relationship was a bit rushed I enjoyed their connection quite a bit. I missed a reconnection with the Acosta’s however since Dante’s family was not well developed and only slightly mention in this story. Overall a solid read.

Jess is a sweetheart of a character. She has been a great daughter to his father as he fell apart during his grief over her mother’s death several years ago and she’s trying everything in her power to pull the pieces of his once thriving horse farm back together. Seeing her once teen crush show up unexpectedly takes her breath away a bit.

Dante is rich and powerful but very down to earth and easy to like. He’s fighting the therapy he needs to recover from an injury, but once Jess is onboard as his physiotherapist things begin to move forward quickly in many aspects of his life.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an unlikely connection with a rich storyline.
