"And the idea of just wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing and seeing where that takes me for awhile is just bliss."

The Christmas Presence
by Carol Kinnee
Mistletoe kisses, snowflake wishes . . .
Noelle Ryan thrives on Christmas—tinsel, mistletoe, eggnog—what's not to love? When her ex-husband, Jake, arrives on her doorstep unannounced, her ho ho ho's fizzle to bah humbugs.
Her Christmas blues multiply when she witnesses a violent robbery and becomes the target of a killer. Now Noelle must choose between police protection, or the spell-binding watch of the delectable Detective Jake Ryan.
Ten years ago, she kicked Jake out without telling him why. Now she's running for her life, and falling for him again. Even a raging blizzard can't cool the flames between them.
Jake promised to keep Noelle out of trouble. He never expected to be snowbound at a cozy cabin set for seduction. He needs to keep Noelle safe. Can he do it without risking his heart?
Stalked by a killer, confronted by memories, will Noelle and Jake find their Christmas miracle?
by Carol Kinnee & Kim McDonald

Luke used moonlighting as a stripper to pay his way through university. Now he’s a superstar chemistry professor , but his bad-boy side won’t let him give up stripping — even if it puts his career at risk.

The tall, dark bad-boy is just Fran’s type — if she had one. When Fran goes home with Danger, their explosive chemistry leads to a sexcellent weekend. Fran knows a relationship with Danger is crazy — he’s a stripper, where can it go? For once in her life, she’s ignoring her rational voice and living in the moment. Big mistake.

Luke wants Fran gone from the lab but Fran’s fiery Sicilian blood isn’t going to let her go quietly. Training under Dr. Tanner takes on a sizzling new meaning.
Can Fran bag both her internship and her Professor, or will sizzle lead to fizzle?

Great read, just in time for Christmas!
The Christmas Presence is a romantic suspense novel that alternates between the viewpoints of the two main characters Noelle and Jake. The author instantly developed a strong voice for both characters and I found the flow of the story and switch between them to be seamless. The past that Jake and Noelle shared created a great sense of conflict between them and I loved the chemistry and build-up of sexual tension. The Cobra was a sinister but believable villain that kept the story moving and the reader in page-turning suspense. I thought it was genius how the author threw the two main characters together into an abandoned cabin in the woods; of course when its cold and snowy outside and there's a fire sizzling inside, naughty things are bound to happen ;) A nice, easy read that took me away. I really enjoyed this book, highly recommend!
