December 25th

Christmas Morning

Jenn did a double take when the taxi pulled up at the huge, wrought?iron gates. ‘This doesn’t look like a restaurant,’ she mumbled.

‘It’s the address you gave me, love,’ the grisly old driver snarled. ‘Are you getting out or what?’

‘Oh, yes, sorry, what do I owe you?’ She fumbled in her handbag for her purse, but before she could pull out her money, the door next to her swung open and a hand appeared in front of her face, waving a fifty dollar note.

‘I’ve got it.’

Morgan.

Her gaze darted to the side just as he stuck his head in the cab. ‘Morgan?’

‘Hey.’ He smiled as he leaned in further and thrust the money between the front seats. ‘Here. Keep the change.’

‘But that’s thirty dollars!’ Jenn argued when she glanced at the meter.

‘The man is working on Christmas day, Jenn. Shouldn’t he get a little something extra?’

‘Oh, well, yes, but — ’

Morgan grabbed her hand and tugged. ‘C’mon. Let’s get you out of there,’ he said as he pulled her from the back seat to stand on the driveway.

He slammed the door shut and the taxi sped off down the street disappearing around the corner before Jenn could bat her eyelashes. She stared after the car, her brain a whirlwind. What was Morgan doing here? And where the hell was here? Before she could form her questions into words, he was ushering her through a small gate beside the two larger ones spanning the driveway of the biggest property she’d ever seen.

‘Oh my,’ she breathed as the gardens and house came into full view on the other side of the enormous front fence. ‘What is this place?’

Morgan glanced over his shoulder when her feet slowed and she lagged behind. ‘Technically it’s mine, but my grandparents are in residence, so I think of it as theirs. I live in the guest cottage out back.’

‘Guest cottage?’ She’d fallen down the rabbit hole. ‘You live here? Wait. You own this place?’

Jenn couldn’t wrap her head around that. She knew Morgan’s was successful, but she had no idea the restaurant was doing that well.

Morgan laughed. ‘Yes. But it’s not what you think. The place is held by the family trust and it’s worked in a way that the youngest first born inherits the place at birth, but the generations before him or her live in it for life.’

She shook her head. That sounded far too complicated for her currently muddled mind to deal with. ‘Okay.’

His laughter rang out across the lawn as he continued to tow her in the direction of the imposing front doors. She dragged her heels until she realised she was digging up the manicured grass and leaving a trail in the pristine yard.

‘Wait. Wait.’ Jenn yanked on her hand until it came free. ‘Why am I here? I don’t understand…’ But then she did. ‘Oh my God. You’re my Secret Santa!’

He had the good grace to blush.

‘Why? Why would you do that?’ Tears stung her eyes. She’d refused his invitation to spend Christmas day with him and his family and he’d tricked her into it by giving her a Christmas lunch at what she thought was a restaurant as her Secret Santa gift.

‘Hey, hey.’ Morgan slipped his arms around her and pulled her close until she was tucked snugly against his warm chest. ‘You don’t have to stay. I just thought it would be a better idea if you were around people today. At least come into the house. If it’s too much you can head out back to my place where I promise no one will bother you.’

She shook her head. She’d been thrilled when she opened her present and read the certificate. As much as she’d believed it best to be on her own today, she’d been dreading it to the point of feeling sick to her stomach. The gift of not being alone — of not spending the hours dwelling on why she was by herself — had given Jenn’s depressed mood a boost until she could barely contain her excitement.

Morgan rocked side to side while he tightened his hold. ‘I’ll take you home now. I didn’t mean to upset you. I just couldn’t bear the thought of you all alone with no one to turn to if you wanted — or needed — to.’

At some point her arms had snaked around his waist and her head nestled into the side of his neck. She could smell soap and pine and Morgan. He always smelled sweet. Jenn

was sure it was all those sinful desserts he made. Taking a deep breath she saturated her senses with his tantalising aroma. With her body curled against his, it was hard to remember why doing this with him was a bad idea.

‘Jenn?’ he murmured into her hair and she could have sworn he pressed his lips to her head. ‘Do you want to go home?’

‘No.’
‘Are you mad at me?’
‘No.’
‘Okay.’ His arms loosened and Jenn gripped his waist tighter. ‘Okay, not letting go

yet.’
Just a few more seconds. A few more heartbeats to pretend it was all right to be in

his arms — to feel his body pressed against the length of hers. She squeezed her eyes shut and etched every single sensation into her memory. She’d take it out on those rare occasions when she allowed herself to think about Morgan as something other than her boss. A sigh raised and lowered her breasts against him.

Her boss.

It didn’t matter how good this felt — how right — being in his arms was wrong. With great reluctance, and a strength she didn’t know she possessed, Jenn let go and stepped back. She tried for a smile, but her lips wobbled and her eyes still held the sheen of tears. Not sad ones. And that was another reason to cry. It had been so long since anything had moved her other than grief.

‘T?thank you.’ She blinked rapidly to disperse the moisture gathering on her lashes. ‘I don’t really want to be alone today.’ It was hard to admit, but Morgan deserved to know where her head was at.

‘I still shouldn’t have pushed the issue.’

‘No. But I’m glad you did.’ Jenn smiled and nodded towards the house. ‘So are we going in?’

Morgan glanced over his shoulder towards the mansion. ‘There’s going to be a lot of people in there. They’ll definitely get overwhelming at some point. Jeez, they overwhelm me and I grew up in the middle of the madness.’

‘I’m sure they won’t be that bad.’ But Jenn was a little worried. As an only child she didn’t have much experience with large families.

He brushed the back of his fingers down her cheek. ‘If at any stage you want out, tell me. I’ll take you down to my place and we can hang out there for a while or you can stay there by yourself.’

She couldn’t help herself. She moved into his touch. The shout from across the yard snapped them both out of the moment. They jumped apart and Jenn had to take several deep breaths to calm her racing heart. Her palms were damp and the soft, gooey warmth swirling in her lower belly left her with an all?too familiar, Morgan?related tension.

‘Someone is calling you.’ Jenn couldn’t get a good look at the person waving at them, but she knew it was a woman. If the flowing dress hadn’t given it away, the slight frame and flamboyant, red, curly hair draped over bare shoulders would have.

    My favorite holiday movie is When Harry Met Sally. I read a book where the hero lived in Alaska. Kinda funny when he found the heroine sexy in long johns. And the place I would like to go is anywhere warm and by the ocean. Hawaii sounds perfect.

    My favorite holiday movie is A Christmas Story

  3. Carolyne
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 10:27:31

    The most unusual historical location I’ve read? I guess I’ll have to say romances set in authentic-seeming ancient Rome or Egypt, since there are so few. Or, at least, I’m not so good at finding them!

  4. Justine
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 10:35:56

    I don’t have a favorite holiday movie. I haven’t read any particularly “unusual” historical locations because all history feels foreign to me, even historicals set in my own country. I’d like to visit Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand.

    Favourite holiday movie? Miracle on 34th Street – doesn’t matter which version

  6. LauraB
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:05:38

    My favorite holiday movie: How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the Chuck Jones cartoon only, please).

    I love romances set in NZ. I’m trying to figure out how to move there one of these days.

  7. Amy R
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:06:49

    Favorite Holiday Movie – White Christmas & original Miracle on 34th St
    I haven’t read any historicals that I would consider the local unusual.
    I want to visit Scotland, Ireland, France and Italy.

  8. Jolanda
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:08:09

    Thanks for these giveaways!
    My favorite holiday movie: While You Were Sleeping. Funny and such sweet romance.
    The most unusual historical location I’ve ever read about was an Aztec romance (so what is now Mexico). The place I would like to visit most is the UK – even though I’ve been there multiple times, I’ve never seen enough.

  9. Jennifer

  11. Jess
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:14:32

    My favorite holiday movie is Love Actually. I haven’t gotten to many historicals in exotic locales because I just started reading historicals less than a year ago and I’m still catching up on the classics.

  12. KellyM
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:20:03

    My favorite recent holiday movie is Elf. I’m also a total sucker for those made-for-TV holiday movies that they have on ABCFamily, Lifetime, and Hallmark.
    I’ve read some fun action adventure romance historicals set in Greece and Egypt.
    Where do I want to go? Someplace where I wouldn’t get to suffer through six months of winter every year. St. Lucia would be lovely.

  13. Kelley
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:23:30

    The place I’d most like to visit is France or Ireland.
    And I’ve never really read a historical with a setting I’d consider unusual.

  14. Laurie Cooper
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:30:35

    One of my favourite holiday movies is Prep & Landing. If you haven’t seen this endearing short, you absolutely must this Christmas Season. Truly, you will fall in love with it. “No one does stealth, like an elf!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHIVnMwODo4

    Favorite Christmas movie is Bill Murray’s Scrooged, now and forever.

  18. Gwen
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 11:47:20

    Most unusual historical location? Gosh, I’m actually not sure…I want to say the Viking romances that take place in Scotland, but more because the ones I’ve read have had such, err, unusual plots not because the location itself was unusual! :P

  19. library addict
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 12:07:33

    My favorite holiday movie is White Christmas. But the one I rewatch the most is Love Actually. (Well, except for the storyline with the British guy in the states and most of the stand-ins scenes which I tend to fast forward through :p But I love Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, and Alan Rickman in this film.)

  20. Karen
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 12:19:35

    My favorite holiday movie is “While You Were Sleeping.”

    I’ve always wanted to see the terra cotta warriors in Xi’an—-and I will next June!

  21. Katie
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 12:49:55

    Favourite holiday movie: that would be Annie, most unusual location: … hm hat would be China, I guess, and I would love to visit the Highlands again

  22. JenM
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 12:52:16

    My favorite holiday movie is still Home Alone, even though I’ve seen it quite a few times. Place I’d most like to visit – right now the top of my list is Egypt/Jordan to see the pyramids and Petra, but unfortunately, the political situation is such that we are putting that one off for the moment.

  23. Kim
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 12:57:57

    My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Carol. I haven’t read about any unusual places, but I’d like to travel to Hawaii.

  24. leftcoaster
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:01:19

    Favorite holiday movie…hmm…maybe “It’s a Drink! It’s a Bomb” Nothing says the holidays like a goofy HK movie

    Most unusual historical read location…sadly (as in why aren’t there more choices) India

    Place I want to visit…for places I most want to go back to, a tie between Sciacca, Sicily, or Nakhon Si Thammarat, Thailand; for places I have never been and want to go, Ireland or Egypt

  25. Natasha R
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:03:26

    Favorite holiday movie: Home Alone comes to mind….but I can watch any holiday movie. Haven’t come across a bad holiday movie yet.

  26. Tammy
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:18:04

    National Lampoons Christmas Vacation :) I haven’t read any unusual historical locations. I need to visit anywhere tropical and warm.

  27. Lori S
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:25:53

    Place I’d most like to visit? Alaska and Australia are both high up on my bucket list. (and my son has been to both, darnit)

    Most unusual historical setting? I always find India and Egypt interesting. The mix of (usually) British and native cultures are a great source of conflict.

    I can’t decide which is my favorite holiday movie. I’d be stuck between Miracle on 34th Street, It’s a Wonderful Life, and A Christmas Story.

  28. Janina
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:28:49

    I would most likely love to visit the united emirates. My favorite holiday movie is home alone.

  29. Demi
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:29:50

    Favorite holiday movie is hard to say, but I’ll go with “The Grinch” (not sure of the full title) with Jim Carrey. He’s delightful.

  30. jules
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:33:08

    The most unusual historical setting? I read a Love Inspired historical set in 1919 Liberia. I picked up the book for the setting alone because how many historical romances do you see set in Liberia? Didn’t really like the book but I was fascinated by the setting.

    Favorite Christmas movie: Love Actually.

  31. Demi
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:34:20

    Oops, forgot to answer the second question…

    The most unusual historical setting I’ve read….recently, it was Barbados (Sharon Cullen’s ‘The Notorious Lady Anne’)

  32. Demi
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:35:18

    There are some fantastic reminders here about awesome Christmas movies!
    Home Alone, Love Actually…must rewatch now.

  33. Cassandra B.
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 13:53:35

    My favorite holiday movie is Elf, followed closely by White Christmas. I think the most unusual setting I have read is 900-ish Baghdad. There are many places I would like to visit. I think Australia and Japan are near the top of my list.

  34. cyclops8
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 14:00:12

    I love Elf and Home Alone. Can’t think of an unusual location historical setting I’ve read. I would love to visit Tahiti.

  35. LineJ
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 14:09:04

    Thanks for the give away :)

    My favourite holiday movie is Three Wishes for Cinderella.
    I think the most unusual historical location I have read was Novgorod

  36. Lindsay
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 14:27:51

    Thank you for the giveaways! I love to watch Gremlins on the holidays because honestly it’s good from Halloween on.

    I can’t recall an unusual historical location but I’d like to read some — it’s mostly been England, Wales, Ireland, France and China.

  37. EvelynS
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 14:52:56

    Favorite holiday movie is The Sound of Music.
    I haven’t read anything that took place in an unusual holiday location.
    The place I would like to visit most is Paris, France.

    Thanks for the giveaways!!

  38. Carolyne
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 14:54:02

    The third bundle started looking appealing, so I entered for that one too, so here’s my other answer :)

    Place I’d most like to visit (not counting places I think I might actually get to in 2014)? Antarctica. And Istanbul. Maybe not in one trip.

  39. sula
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 15:04:07

    My favorite holiday movie is probably gotta be “It’s a Wonderful Life”. Utterly schlocky, wonderful goodness. And the underlying theme of the little guy against plutocracy is even more relevant today than ever.

    Most unusual historical setting is the alternative history found in Kate Elliot’s Spiritwalker series. A celtic/mande europe was totally fascinating to me as someone who has lived in West Africa and has also traveled all over Western Europe.

    I’ve been fortunate enough to travel a lot (34 countries and counting) but one place I have yet to visit and am dreaming about is New Zealand.

  40. martins
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 15:05:46

    Favorite holiday movie: While You Were Sleeping!
    Unusual Location: Not sure so unusual, but for whatever reason, romances set in/focused around Egypt/the Pyramids tend to stay on my keeper list.
    I’d most like to visit Tokyo, Japan.

  41. Billie
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 15:07:37

    White Christmas is wonderful with all the lovely music.
    Italy is the place for me, if I could only find a way to get there.

    My favourite holiday movie? The Nightmare before Christmas.

  47. Julaine
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 16:30:02

    It’s a toss up between Miracle on 34th St and Love Actually. On is part of my childhood so it gets the nostalgia vote and the other one is the best contemporary Christmas movie made. IMHO, that is. I think the most unusual historical setting I recall was actually set on another planet. Even aliens have pasts, after all. Where I would most like to go? A tour of the Far East, definitely.

  48. michelle w
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 16:51:54

  51. Shelley D
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 17:50:27

    I would love to visit London, Paris and Amsterdam.

  52. Mary Preston
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 17:51:43

    HOME ALONG still makes me laugh.

    Ancient Egypt while not that unusual was certainly beautiful & exciting to read about.

    I’d love to travel extensively throughout Great Britain.

  55. Danielle West

    My favorite holiday movie is definitely Christmas Vacation. Weirdest locale, probably one that was set in the Amazon during Columbus’s time.

  56. vicky
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 19:14:03

    My favorite holiday movie is The Christmas Story, perfect for remembering all the angst surround a kid Christmas. I would most like to visit Florence, and most unusual place read about is Nepal.

    Nov 14, 2013 @ 21:02:54

    The Sound of Music. It’s not *really* a holiday movie, but it used to be on every year between Christmas and New Year’s, so I’ve always associated it with the holidays. My husband always had to watch A Christmas Story, though, so I guess that could serve as my stand-in. ;)

    Most unusual historical location I’ve read? Not sure–maybe Roanoke colony?

    I’d love to visit so many places! Top of my list are Greece and the ruins at Macchu Picchu.

  62. Ashley

    Favorite holiday movie, Miracle on 34th street. Place I would love to go, Ireland. Haven’t made it there yet…and most unusual setting is a hard one. I have read books set on other planets, moons, realities, in fairie mounds, hell and many other places

  67. Nadia Lee
    Nov 14, 2013 @ 22:52:03

    Most unusual historical location – I was given a copy of Polar Reaction by Claire Thompson. The book begins in Antarctica with much ice melting action. m/m/m

    Fav holiday movie? Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire in Holiday Inn …. love, love, love. Also adore Love, Actually but then again, who doesn’t???
    In our family, Singing in the Rain is considered a holiday movie as it was always on Christmas Day, late at night after all the adults had gone to bed. I still have lovely Christmas memories of that movie!
