It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!

When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.

The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.

But as the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after, and he wants it with Lotti. But will she open her heart to him again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, he can only hope love and magic are in the air.


A delightful and sweet holiday novella from our Heartbreaker Bay gang, featuring (Sweet Little Lie’s) Finn’s younger brother Sean as our hero.

This was a cute second chance romance for Sean and Lotti when Sean and the gang and up at Lotti’s B&B for some Finn and Pru pre-wedding partying.

It was nice to see Sean prove not only to Lotti but his brother and friends too, that he’s matured and become a hero worth rooting for.

I always love seeing the gang and all the fun shenanigans they get into. And Elle still has the best quotes.

“We’re all angels,” Elle, another bridesmaid, said. “And when someone breaks our wings, we simply continue to fly . . . on a broomstick. We’re flexible like that.”

If you’re a fan of this series or just sweet, fun holiday reads, this is a perfect quick pick-me-up for the season.
