Gingerbread & Jingle Bells

A Novella by

You never get a second chance at a first kiss… or do you?

She’s a big-city executive with a cool head for business.
He’s a small-town veterinarian with a passion for saving injured wildlife.

As children, they’d been the best of friends, until the day Eve had so determinedly—and somewhat disastrously—kissed Daniel on the lips, just before his family moved back to England.

This December, they're both back in town, and Eve's grandmother is on a mortifyingly obvious matchmaking mission. What good would it do for Eve to fall for the tall, dark, and British version of her childhood sidekick? Daniel has come back to stay; Eve is leaving as soon as the holiday rush at her family’s bakery is over. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to resist the temptation to take a second chance at that first kiss.

After all, one little kiss before Christmas won't change their lives…will it?
