No matter to what lengths the challenge makes her go. Only she didn't expect to find Santa almost catching her in her wrongdoings. Then she finds that the handsome Santa is Jay, her old high school friend. Now he's changed from a gangly geek to an attractive stranger. After missing out on the dating scene for a long time after losing Pete, she feels the first stirring of desire. But Jay is playing hot and cold, refusing to admit the attraction sizzling between them.

He’s back in Goa just for Christmas

He’s home only to help revive his brother’s toy shop. When he finds himself making excuses to stay, he knows he’s crossing the limits he’d set himself. What’s the purpose in taking this further when he knows he cannot be the one to give her the happiness she deserves? But no matter how hard he tries, the scorching flames of wanting only seem to get stronger. How can he keep on denying the attraction between them when she insists on coming close?

Behind the book

About the author

Summerita Rhayne writes sensual romance which is sheer escapism with lots of emotional conflict. She first got published in 2013 and has won contests with prestigious publishers such as Harlequin and Harper Collins India. Writing, she finds, is the only way to deal with the numerous story ideas bubbling in her brain which pop up more rapidly than her keyboard can do justice to. Her pet belief is that even when writing time is in short supply, if the inspiration is strong enough, the story characters get a life of their own and will find a way to make the writer pen them down. When cerebrally confronted with the sizzling interaction of two Alpha characters, the only way to get peace is write their book!

At heart, she's a family person and even though she loves her medical teaching profession, she happily becomes a homemaker when not at work. She loves winding down with music, movies, cricket (strictly watching only) and social networking.

Me thinks

Having read Summerita Rhayne's work before I knew what to expect when I picked this up for review. She has this wonderful ability to weave romance and ensure a perfectly breezy entertaining read leaving you with a feel-good feeling when you are done with the book. This is something I really like about the author.

In romance usually the plot is wafer thin and very rarely something radically different. It is the treatment of the plot that changes the whole dynamics of a book and here Summerita scores a brownie point. Purely for the treatment of the book as once again she made me feel heady in the magic of love and for few moments captured me from my real world and transported to her imaginary world of words. It is a commendable feat.

The characters Myra ( Ah! I so love this name!) and Jay are beautifully etched and clearly defined, sharply enough to carve a niche of their own in your memory. They warm up your heart with their story and take you along on their journey of discovering each other along with love.

A strongly recommended book to all romance lovers and others who are looking for light reads this will add some coolness to your other hot dull summer afternoons. 

Foodie Verdict

This book is like Italian Risoto - perfectly balanced flavours of spicy, tangy and sour deliciousness in every scoop (read: word).
