'It's always been a dream of mine to get locked in a cool departmentstore overnight (yes, I've watched many 80s movies with that scenario!). But not only was it super fun, it was also super steamy. Let's just sothat alpha male Ryder knows how to thaw Kate out. And though their lives may seem worlds apart, these two will find a way to make it work.'Andrea, Goodreads reviewer (4 stars)

'A well-written, sexy, fun, romantic, captivating read which flowswell, has wonderful loveable characters and a witty yet completelytouching storyline. As someone who admits they aren't a huge fan of novella's unlesslinked to a series, I was chuffed to bits with this. If you have anhour, festive frolics with Kate and Ryder is the way to spend it.'Nicola, Goodreads reviewer (4 stars)

Full review on my blog, Becky on Books.

Somehow, even though 'Tis the Season to Get Lucky is even shorter in length than the first book in the series, 'Tis the Season to Kiss Santa, it didn't end up feeling nearly as rushed. I found the initial antagonism between the two characters much more believab ...more

I've been reading a lot of Christmas themed novellas for reviews & this is my FAVORITE one so far. It was perfect in so many ways! I loved that while there was an instant attraction between Katherine and Ryder, they had almost a "distrust" of each other because of their preconceived ideas. Secondly, ...more

I received this book for review from the publisher and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.

Katherine and Ryder were a very difficult couple for me because at first I couldn’t connect with neither. Kat was a bit cold and everything was mechanical for her, so I liked halfway into this novella the way Ryder showed some freedom. Their night together was extra hot and I think she needed after ...more

This was such a sweet, romantic, and easy read. Sometimes we get too wound up in the lives we believe are meant to be for us that we lose sight on what we really need. This is how it was for Ryder and Kate. Ryder is a playboy, of sorts, the owner's son. As far as Kate can tell, he doesn't care about ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Heidi Rice

USA Today bestselling author Heidi Rice lives in London and is married with two teenage sons (which gives her rather too much of an insight into the male psyche). She also works as a film journalist but loves being a romance writer because it involves sitting down at her computer each day and getting swept up in a world of high emotions, sensual excitement, smart feisty women, sexy tortured men and glamorous locations where laundry doesn't exist ... Not bad, eh. Then she gets to turn off her computer and do chores (usually involving laundry!)
