He’s making a list. He’s checking it twice. He’s going to know if you’ve been naughty or nice.
Holly Haynes is pretending to be naughty this Christmas Eve.
All nice has ever gotten her is jobless, carless, and dumped. Desperate to prove that she can still have fun, she agrees to go to a party with her best friend. There’s one slight catch. She has to pick up a nice guy while rocking her naughty persona, take him home, and jingle his bells. This won’t get her kicked off Santa’s nice list, right?

Cable Jones is as naughty as they come. An American in Australia, he’s sworn off women after his last conquest landed him in hot water with his boss. No small task since he might as well be wearing Rudolph’s red nose with the way women gravitate to him. Pretending to be a nerdy guy seems to do the trick until a mysterious girl lands in his lap.

Now Santa won’t be the only one coming this night.

Two complete strangers pretending to be something they’re not. One last fling. No questions asked. No names. He can’t say no to her candy lips or her pretty blue eyes. She can’t say no to his seductive touch or the dirty things he says. It’s just one night. Never to be spoken of again.

Until they find themselves forced to celebrate Christmas together.

*This is a quick read full of instalove, Christmas, and puns.
