What do you get when you cross a head-strong assistant with a workaholic CEO over the Holidays? You get stuck in an ice storm miles from your mother’s turkey and pumpkin pie. You can stress about the crisis or you can make the best of a bad situation by puckering up and Kissing Mr. Scrooge!
Maddie Timms’s and her workaholic, type-A boss are heading on a business trip where she’ll miss Christmas at home, but it might just be worth disappointing her family if she can convince the tall, dark, and sexy humbug to embrace the season…and her.
The elevator doors close, and I can’t help the giggles that erupt from my chest. That was the most insane, fun thing I’ve ever done in my life. Even if it was a little harrowing at times.
Mr. Scorge, his face once again shuttered, looks at me speculatively. I laugh out loud, hoping to entice him into some elusive, emotion-laden expression—something that reveals he can grasp the humor of the situation—but his serious, no-nonsense glare stops me mid-cackle. He doesn’t look happy—he looks…something else. My heart trips over itself, trying to beat faster but falls to its knees instead. Heated desire rolls off Scorge in masculine waves.
Like a hungry predator, he prowls closer, turning to face me directly. My breath tries to help my heart off the ground but it fails.
He takes one more step and is rising over me. So close I can see grey-green flecks in his hard blue irises and feel the even brush of his breath against my temple. I gulp loudly, not sure if I’m excited or scared. Do I have to choose? He’s leaning closer still. Our noses are about to touch. A hint of a smile plays at the corner of his lips right before…
I hope you check out this story. It’ll make you smile and feel good, I promise. **fingers crossed behind my back**
