Two people need the most amazing holiday miracle of all: love.

Enzu is determined to offer his orphaned niece and nephew the family he’d craved but never known, even if he has to pay a few million for a “loving mother.”

Audrey learns of her CEO’s crazy scheme and sees it as an opportunity to provide the high end education her brilliant brother deserves. Besides, she knows you can’t buy love and those orphaned children deserve better than the women Vincenzo Tomasi is going to draw with his multi-million dollar offer.

My Opinion:

I loved the book!

But let me tell you a little bit about it first...

 When she was just a 21-year-old student at a great University - her strict parents kicked out her 12-year-old brother Toby - because he said he was gay!
And because she chose to side with her sweet brother of course, her parents disowned her too - and she had to find a job to support the 2 of them
She found work at the TOMASI BANK. She only caught a glimpse of the Mr. Tomasi once, and ever since then she had a total celebrity crush on the hot billionaire.

And now six years later - with money problems on the horizon, because Toby got accepted to MIT - she overhears her boss's PA in an office bathroom: Mr. Vincenzo Tomasi needs to find or buy or hire a wife.  Because he wants his orphaned nephew and niece to have a wonderful childhood. Not like the absent parents he and his brother grew up with.

At their first meeting sparks are already flying.
Enzo is extremely intrigued by this pretty woman.

He invites her into his life to meet with the kids and to see if there is more between them to build a marriage on.

Is there?? Or will this be a marriage in name only?

 I won't tell you that ☺
I don't want to spoil your reading pleasure ☺

BUT - I could be convinced to tell you a few tiny little thingies ☺

There will be some really romantic and sexy moments

and there will be moments where you should have a box of tissues close by. ☺


I really LOVE Christmas - all those snow and cookie baking and hot cider drinking moments ☺
That's what I didn't like about this book - all those ^^ things were missing here :(
There was NO christmas mood at all - no snowy NY streets - no hot chocolate in front of the fire place etc. We have a Thanksgiving dinner and on the last pages there's Christmas - so I would say the title is a bit mis-leading - BUT that didn't stop me from enjoying the book ☺
Oh and another tiny little thing I didn't like - there was A LOT of talk about business... made me feel like I was back in school ;)

But other than that it was a really sweet and moving and romantic and sexy and wonderful story ☺

Enzu is really adorable. He wants to be this tough business man - and he always has been up till now - but now he has Audrey and those cute little kids! He doesn't stand a chance.

Little Franca is really adorable - and the Nanny is sweet too - and the major-domo!
We also meet Enzu's not-so-likable Dad ☺

If you like sweet and adorable Romances - go and get this book!
