A lump of coal landed in Sylvie Stark’s stocking. Bad enough she’s been passed over for promotion, now she learns her new  boss is none other than her old love, Chase McCann. No  matter. She refuses to let him distract her from her job.

Easier said than done. The more office time they share, the harder it is to fight the undeniable attraction and soon her long-ago wishes are coming true. But their clashes over the fate of the business  threaten the festive spirit between them and one of them could end  up on the naughty list. Or maybe this Christmas she will  get everything she wants. After all, it is the most wonderful time  of the year

Chase ran the back of his hand along her cheek

Sylvie could hardly breathe. Everything in her waited to hear what he would say, what he would do.

He gave in and pressed his mouth to hers, holding motionless, as if waiting for the spark to flare. And oh, did it flare. Just like all those years before, pure desire poured through her.

They were reliving a memory, fixing it. For once in her life, she was going for it. Arousal sparked along her nerves, like strings of twinkle lights. She felt light-headed and pulled back just long enough to take in a gulp of air. With their hands on each other’s faces, their upper bodies close, the embrace was tender and hungry and wild all at once and she never wanted to stop.
