Warrior Grim Mackintosh understands why his friend Archibald MacNab has decreed there be no trace of Christmas in his castle. After a devastating attack destroyed everything-and everyone-in Archie’s life, he prefers to stew in his own misery until the holiday passes. But Duncreag has seen enough tragedy. Grim decides to throw a grand Yuletide feast, one that the bards will sing about for years to come, one that will remind his laird how beloved he is. He can’t do it alone, though. Grim needs an accomplice . . .

There’s nothing Breena O’Doherty won’t do for Archie, so she’s thrilled to help Grim with his plan. Yet she has a Christmas wish all her own-to win Grim’s heart-and this might be her only chance to make it come true. As Breena and Grim work together to bring the joy of the season to the cold, gloomy castle and to the heart of the cantankerous chieftain, an undeniable passion ignites between them. But when a shocking secret about Breena’s past comes to light, threatening everything she holds dear, will it ruin Christmas in Duncreag forevermore?

If you said yes to one or more of those questions will this book is for you!

Seriously, this book oozed cuteness. Warrior Grim Mackintosh  has a crush on Breena O’Doherty, but he doesn’t think a pretty lass like her would go for a guy like him. Breena O’Doherty has a crush on Grim Mackintosh, but doesn’t think a warrior like him could ever fall in love with a girl like her. Seriously, they are perfect for each other. Both are soooo adorably lovable. And than there’s Archie, who is the best ol’ cranky Scottish warrior ever. He’s being the Grinch and Breena and Grim decide to bring back his Christmas spirit by bring all his friends celebrate!

I love that this is a novella and it doesn’t take forever for the two of them to confess their love for each other. That’s all you really need to know about this book. Now go forth and enjoy this ridiculously adorable holiday read.

  1. Awwww how cute, I love the whole Christmas spirit thing here! Sounds like such a cute novella. I don’t read much straight romance, but this sounds good.

    1. It was so adorable! If you’re not much for straight romance, I totally recommend novellas cuz they’re nice condense version haha. You just have to take the possible insta-love with a grain of salt 😉
