Krista Hartley never expected the unrequited love of her life, the irresistible Derek Weston, to work as the groundskeeper at the apartment building she just moved into. They barely spoke in high school but now, three years after graduation, they tore at each other’s clothes and jumped into bed together at every opportunity. After all, how could a hot-blooded woman say no to a sexy man with an eyebrow ring, a dragon tattoo and a deadly swagger?

A Christmas miracle drew Krista back into Derek’s life. He kissed her for the first time under mistletoe, pampered her with romantic candlelight dinners and memorized every inch of her delectable body with his tongue. He refused to let his dream girl slip through his fingers again but then another woman threatened their whirlwind romance. Hurt once before, Krista broke off their relationship and then Derek made a drunken mistake that could destroy their love forever. With just days to Christmas, he vowed to win back her heart and trust, and prove his innocence once and for all.

Story 3 in the best-selling series, Handmade for Christmas.


I have read a few of Ms. Daulton's stories and this book is no different. It lives up her easy to follow and enjoyable style of writing.

This time of year people enjoy those books that give you the happy ending and make you feel all warm and fuzzy and this book gave me that. I smiled more than a few times while reading Krista and Derek's little love affair.

I would have liked to see this story a bit longer so I could have gotten to know more of the characters. The cover I think doesn't do Derek's character enough justice. He is much more bad boy than the cover model. Which was a bonus for me.

Often times the 'happy ever after' books to me feel cheesy and I usually am let down. With Ms. Daulton's novella I didn't feel that at all.

All in all I would say this was a solid 3.5 star read. Had there been more of Krista and Derek then I easily could have seen this moving in the 4 star range.
