Dani will not allow The Grinch to hide from Christmas. She will cure Hunter of his nasty mood, even if it kills her. But who will save her from his passionate kisses.

War hero, Hunter Armstrong, has seen enough devastation to last a lifetime. At the end of his latest Army term, he accepted his discharge papers and never looked back. His uncle’s home is tucked away in the majestic mountains, a perfect place for him to hide from Christmas and his own memories. But he can’t hide from the delectable Dani. The last thing he needs is a female in his life. But this one has the face of an angel and eyes you could drown in.

Dani Wimer left the Colorado Mountains and relocated in the bright lights of New York City. Every December she returns to the village of Wyattsville. When a hunky military guy enters her aunt’s shop, he seems lost and angry. His scowl is intimidating, but that doesn’t bother the spunky girl who celebrates the holidays like it’s Christmas every day. She decides to put a smile on his Grinch face and ends up losing her heart in a passionate whirlwind.

Main points

I really liked this book! It was really cute. It was pretty cliché and predictable, but we all need some of that every now and then. It was a cute story with a very happy ending. You can pretty much tell what happens in the synopsis, but this book isn’t all PG. It has its steamy moments. Very well done. Not too excessive either.

I loved the dual POVs. Very important in romance novels, if you ask me. They didn’t go back and re-do scenes from the other person’s perspective, but it was easy enough to tell the other person’s emotions. Thus it was satisfying.

The characters were great. Hunter did a fantastic job resisting Dani and trying to be a Grinch. I was surprised that she was a bit forward, considering that at a few points she even said it wasn’t like her, but that’s what he responded to so I can understand it. Anyway, his opinions of her highlighted how wonderful Dani was, and she truly did seem like just what he needed. She was caring and compassionate and full of energy and relentless cheer. His opposite, but opposites attract. He was edgy and brooding but also passionate. His mood swings were annoying at first but Dani knew how to handle him. All the other characters were great too, for their brief appearances.

All in all, super short story, so a fast read. Very cute AND steamy. Not all light, as Hunter has his demons, but overall it’s very much a fairytale romance.

About Samanthya Wyatt

Samanthya lives with her husband in the Shenandoah Valley. She left her accounting career and married a military man traveling and making her home in the United States and abroad. Once she found historical romance novels, she couldn’t put a book down. She fell in love with the characters and needed to know their happy ending.
One day she put words to paper creating a story of her own. The more she wrote, the more she became involved with the characters, and they seemed to take a life of their own. She relishes the challenge of penning a story with strong characters, a bit of humor, and active scenes while creating new characters and bringing them together in a romantic tale. It took years of writing, joining RWA, joining chapters, entering contests, submissions & rejections which created the author she is today. By keeping her spirit and turning criticism into drive she has achieved her career as a published romance author.
