"No Mistletoe Required" by Jeanette Murray (aka Kat Murray)

Author's Book Description : Dan Beckins isn’t sure how he let his best friend con him into volunteering to build Santa’s Winter Wonderland at the local hospital. He’s got no problems with charity work, but anything Christmas-related is off-limits ever since he lost his parents on Christmas Day years ago. The only bright spot is working with smoking-hot Anna Smith.

Anna Smith loves Christmas and volunteering at the hospital is one of her yearly highlights. She had leukemia as a teen and then a breast cancer scare in her mid-twenties, and is now operating under a self-imposed rule that she can’t have a relationship until the doctors give her a clean bill of health.

A little fling might be permissible, though, and sexy lawyer-turned-carpenter Dan seems like the perfect candidate. But when chemistry flares and the two start forming a real connection, will Anna run away before like turns to love?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, one Ebenezer Scrooge-type of guy meets the one Holiday Cheer-filled woman who is able to turn his life upside down and show him what the spirit of Christmas is all about.

This sweetly written contemporary romance keeps you laughing the whole way through. I liked how Ms. Murray handles both Anna and Dan’s background stories, making the readers sympathize with the characters while still getting into the holiday spirit of it all! Together I found Anna and Dan to be a great pair. Plus their sex scenes were just steamy enough to keep a reader engrossed while leaving their relationship believable enough that you were rooting for them from beginning to end!

My only wish was that the ending could have been less rushed through, yet overall I DO recommend this novel to those looking for a slightly erotic sweet Christmas romance!

Dan's first few Santa visits had been touch-and-go, but the kids were so young that they didn't look past the costume to see if Santa had any actual enthusiasm for the job. With each child that left his lap with a smile, he relaxed just a little more. Joked just a little more. And after a little bit, started developing his own dramatic Santa voice and belly-deep Santa laugh. The entire thing was completely charming.
And, she had to admit to herself, more than a little erotic. The laugh and the attitude that went with it were doing things to her. And, oh God, she was totally hot for Santa. ~ within Chapter 4
