Nice is about to meet Naughty…
When Aussie Naomi Spencer hears her uncle’s American friend is coming Down Under for a short visit, she can’t wait to be rid of him. Aaron’s “Bah Humbug” attitude drives her crazy…and so does his incredibly sexy smile, and the way he pitches in to help her get ready for all her relatives. Okay, so maybe he’s not a total Grinch. But when Naomi’s uncle warns her to stay away from his playboy friend, Naomi’s simple holiday gets even more complicated.
When a volcano grounds all flights back to the States, Aaron Cade finds himself stranded in Oz. For Aaron, family holidays are to be endured, not celebrated. Only Naomi brings magic to the simplest things: shopping for gifts, finding the perfect decorations, and making him feel at home in the bizarrely tropical December heat. His sudden, overwhelming attraction to Naomi will turn his idea of home upside-down…but can he change everything for one white-hot love?
