You’ve probably heard of me.
Reclusive fantasy author turned famous when his series got developed into a mega TV hit.
Except now I’m way behind deadline, and the whole world is waiting to see what I’ll write next.
The pressure is getting to me, and I. Can’t. Write.
Cue: small town where people don’t recognize me.
Cue: my assistant insisting on a personal chef to keep me fed and nothing more.
Cue: finding the first bit of inspiration I’ve felt in months whenever she’s around…
Am I a walking cliche now, or what?
Dani Cooper seems to have her own hurdles to jump this holiday season. Newly divorced, looking for her next move. She’s the first person who’s seen me for me in way too long. And I see her, too--as way more than just an employee, a divorcee, a cook. She’s becoming my muse…
But when my Christmas deadline hits, will it spell the end of us, too?


A wonderful holiday read.” --Natasha W., Goodreads

“This is an adorable story with lots of Christmas cheer. And cookies!” --Liz S., Goodreads

“This was a fun and sweet book. It had romance; it had food; it had fantasy, but it had no dragons! This was a fun mental escape during the holidays!” --Elizabeth C., Goodreads

“What a cute story to read right at the holidays! I loved these characters and had a hard time putting it down so I could get some sleep! This book made me want to cry at times, gave me butterflies at times and had me wanting to stand up for the characters at times.” --Adrienne B., Goodreads

“If you’re looking for a quick holiday read that will make you feel all warm & fuzzy inside, this is it!  Definitely could see this made into a Hallmark movie.” --Ashley S., NetGalley

Matt is an author stuck in a writer's block. Like George R.R. Martin, he's penned a series of books that were adapted into a successful TV series. Now he's on a deadline to produce the last book before the last season of the TV series starts filming. But he's out of inspiration, and the TV people wa ...more

Thank you to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing for kindly providing me with a digital copy of this book for review.
This was a very cute story and I enjoyed it very much. I particularly appreciated seeing a couple in their mid 40’s as the romantic leads- we need more representation like this in roma ...more
