A kitten saved her…
Broke, pregnant and deserted by her boyfriend, Maddie Barrymore swerves to avoid a kitten while driving in a Wisconsin blizzard—and her life takes another turn. Like Puss in Boots, she stays in an empty house. She has the baby, the kitten, gets a job and a degree…yet every day she’s ready to flee if the real owner shows up.
Five years later, he does…Dumped by the woman he loves, film producer Logan MacLeesh’s heart is as dark as one of his movies. He plans to hole up in his grandmother’s old mansion and throw himself into his work…until he discovers the sexy squatter and her four-year-old son. Before he can call the sheriff, Maddie’s tale of how she ended up there entertains him. They make a deal that as long as she tells him a story every night, she and her son can stay. Even the cat, though Logan’s always been a dog person.
A dog in need of saving…Far away in another state, a homeless dog lifts his head, sniffs…and smells him. The human who’s meant for him. As he heads through the snow toward the scent, his journey seems impossible, even though it’s Christmas, a time when miracles happen.
Christmas at Angel Lake was fanfreakingtastic. Maddie and Logan’s sexual tension is combustible. I love the “rescued hearts” theme to the book and I’m definitely going back and reading the first book in this series.
Logan is in a dark place, he decides to spend some time in his grandmother’s mansion that he hasn’t been to in over a decade when he finds someone actually living there. Maddie knows what she’s doing isn’t right but she’s done the best she could do with her situation, when her biggest fear of the last 5 years is suddenly staring her in the face, the owner of the house she has been staying in without his knowledge.
Logan is trying to regain his spark, to write again. He reaches an agreement with Maddie that they can stay in the house as long as she tells him a story every evening. Through the stories and day to day activities, Logan gets a one two punch of reality, as Maddie’s stories start to melt the ice around his heart. Keeping his hands to himself is becoming increasingly difficult, after they finally give in, Maddie’s second biggest fear slams her, when Logan leaves taking her heart with him. Only a Christmas miracle will repair it.
