Mistletoe and Cookies: A Romantic Christmas Novella -Erika Washington and Sebastian Romero are pastry chefs who are co-owners of a bistro in Grand Bay, Ohio.
He’d given his heart for Christmas; only for it to be given away…
For Sebastian, Christmas is an ugly reminder of a disastrous attempt at a proposal several years ago on Christmas Day, and the aftermath has spoiled the holiday for him.
She’d didn’t have the right ‘ingredients’ to be a wife…
At this time of the year, Erika is haunted by her ex-boyfriend’s harsh words that she isn’t ‘wife’ material. He may have been shown the door, but the words are harder to shake off. The holidays are a time when she is especially hard on herself, comparing her life to her sister who has a perfect family life. Right now, Erika is slowly enjoying Sebastian’s company, making quips and banter over their mixing bowls in their much-loved business. The last thing she wants to do is to tarnish that relationship – no matter how badly she begins to crave something more profound with him.
It’s the most beautiful time of the year to take a chance.
When a large cookie order comes through from a client, Erika and Sebastian roll up their sleeves and take to the kitchen. While the gentle heat from the oven and being elbow deep in dough keep them close, will new feelings be brought to light in the glow of the holiday season?
