|Nicholas Klaus is a master pastry chef who scours the world perfecting delectable edibles. Lucy Brewster is the owner of a bakery called Sweet Inspiration which is known for outstanding sugar cookies. She's a workaholic who dreams of adventures in foreign lands. Nicholas is heir to the Santa Claus empire and is usually driven by work and family obligations but one glance at the laid-back pātissier and he's yearning for more than Lucy's homemade sweets. When she is injured he makes a hasty decision and the couple ends up in the North Pole. Can this strict future Santa and an easy-going proprietress have their own magical fairytale?
What a sweet Christmas treat! The whole idea that Santa has a sleigh full of sexy sons really intrigued me and I was eager to delve into this book which did not disappoint me. This scrumptious tale was realistic yet fantastical. The location of Glasdorf was so well described that I felt like booking my next vacation there. All the delicious characters were wonderfully developed. Fabulous dialogue kept me laughing out loud at the outrageous comments from the brothers and some rather humorous elves. I loved the relationship between Lucy and Nicholas they complimented each other perfectly. They had so much in common and those characteristics that were opposite counter balanced. I think they truly were made for each other. I never really was hot for Santa but those Klaus brothers really cranked my Christmas tree; I didn't need a mug of hot chocolate to warm me up although I'm sure Nicholas could do wonders with whipped cream and sprinkles. I'm hooked on this series and cannot wait to read the next instalment. It has been a few days since I finished reading this magical tale and I'm still grinning from ear to ear.
