A Groom for Christmas by Cara Marsi
This sensuous romance is like a Hallmark Christmas movie, with some intense love scenes.
When a young woman hires her hometown’s former bad boy to be her pretend fiancé for the holidays, she finds she can’t wrap up her feelings as easily as a Christmas gift.
New York jewelry designer Graceann Palmer has two days to find a fiancé to bring home to Pennsylvania for the holidays so her matchmaking mama will quit fixing her up with jerks. The Falcon, a motorcycle-riding, leather-clad former high school crush, helped her out once before. Maybe he'll do it again.
Jake Falco, man of many mysteries, is back in town on a mission—one the people of Spirit Lake most likely won't appreciate. When Graceann presents him with her crazy scheme, it gives him something he's always wanted—a chance to get to know Graceann. It also gives him the perfect opportunity to add fuel to his project of revenge.
But as Jake and Graceann grow closer, their engagement-of-convenience begins to feel like the real deal—until Jake’s secrets are revealed.
Can a relationship that began with lies and secrets bloom like a rare Christmas rose into happily-ever-after?
It was so cute and hilarious to read that I could not put it down at all. It is a short story that it would be perfect a cozy weekend. Graceann family are too involve into her romance life that she needed a fake fiance to help her out so she can show her family that she is perfect fine with her self. She is cute throughout the book that she keeps saying that she does not need a man in her life, but ends up falling for Jake. I definitely love Jake as a character because he is so funny and lovable that he clearly has deep feeling for Graceann. He has some issue but he opens up with Graceann as the story progress. Of course, they definitely felt the spark between them that it did not appear to pretending at all.
