Whatever possessed Emma Braithwaite to move to Silver Glen? She had no illusions that being in Aidan Kavanagh's hometown would reignite the love they'd shared in England years ago. But now that Aidan's returned for his brother's Christmas wedding, it's clear Emma's explosive attraction to the billionaire has lost none of its power. She is the cool English beauty whose betrayal once shattered his heart. So Aidan's not looking for reconciliation—all he wants is Emma in his bed! Needless to say, Emma has other ideas: she's not settling for anything less than commitment this time…
I've loved Harlequin for many years, I'm a huge Yule junkie and I absolutely love Christmas/Yule Romances, so when I got the chance to read Janice's book, I was on it like tinsel on a Christmas tree.

Janice always manages to make her character relateable, they make you love them, fall for them, lust after them and of course want to kick their butts into gear when they act out.

I love happy endings, but Christmas happy endings are always better, I love when Christmas magic works to help bring our protagonists together.

These two are former first loves torn apart by youth and family and are brought back together when their friends get together and get married over the holidays.  Even though they are no longer together, Emma has moved and created a home for herself in her former love's hometown, of Silver Glen, the former English lady, has created a thriving business and finds happiness by being apart of the community even if the piece of her heart is no longer with her.  I loved that she was willing to become more and move on from the past somewhat even though he wasn't there.  Aiden doesn't come home much if he can help it, each time he comes home something else bad happens.  Faced with a looming wedding Aiden is shocked to see the woman who broke his heart  and made him doubt love is friends with his family.

Even though he can't trust her, he is still attracted to her, and decides to use her as a distraction from the past.  They get together and have some seriously steamy moments.  Even a few that make you feel for them and understand where they are coming from, why they feel the way they feel.  They both have secrets and reasons and when it all comes out and boy the emotions.  I loved it and man it totally helped to pull me out of my reading slump.  I loved it.  A good christmas story.

It's apparently a part of a series, it doesn't read like a book in a series, You only get glimpses of the other characters, but this story really focuses on Emma and Aiden and their story.  So you don't have to read in chronological order to get the story.  I do however want to look into the other books to see how those stories unfold.
Happy Reading
