Last night, Anna Gardner was the life of the office Christmas party—right up until she threw herself at gorgeous advertising executive playboy, Hugh Munro. Again. Last year, Hugh let her pretend their passionate kiss never happened, but this year he’s determined to make Anna admit she wants him as much as he wants her.
Except, Hugh doesn't know the office party is the only night of the year his friend lets her hair down. That every hour she’s away from the office is spent caring for her sickly mother. That her mother’s condition, early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, is hereditary.
When Hugh finds out what she’s been hiding, he’s forced to do some serious soul-searching. It's not fair to Anna or her mother for him to get involved casually, but casual relationships are all he knows. Can he prove to himself—and to Anna—that she’s all he wants for Christmas?

Having worked with elderly and their families in the past, I was easily attached to Anna’s plight. This is a sweet, short romantic story between Anna and Hugh. Hugh has pursued Anna over a period of time to only be rejected once again. When he learns why she’s been hiding away from romance, Hugh quickly embeds himself into Anna’s life like a real life knight in shining armor. This was a very easy read but entertaining. A sweet holiday read if you need a simple romantic pick me up.
