Can a kiss under the mistletoe be the beginning of a beautiful relationship?

Firefighter and paramedic Spencer McBride has never been tempted to change his happy-go-lucky bachelor status – until he literally runs into cute newcomer Georgie under the mistletoe.

Wounded after giving her heart to a man who wouldn’t commit, paramedic Georgie Durant has come to Last Stand, Texas, for a fresh start. Though tempted by the handsome Spencer, she’s too leery of his easy charm and the pitfalls of a workplace relationship to risk one with him.

But as they spend more time together amid the Christmas gaiety and Georgie sees Spencer’s dedication and devotion to the people he helps, she begins to wonder if this beguiling co-worker could be different.

Spencer has always been a man who knows what he wants – and he wants Georgie. But when the man from her past comes to town, determined to win her back, can Spencer convince Georgie to take another chance – with him?

UNDER THE MISTLETOE is the third story in the Heart of Texas series which is part of the Last Stand, Texas group of series.  I love connected series, they give me a wider sense of community plus I enjoy seeing characters from other series just show up now and then – so, yeah, I am a huge Last Stand, Texas fan.

This time around we get Spencer McBride’s story with Georgie Durant, a newcomer to town as well as a co-worker.  Spencer is one of the good guys, he’s loved within the community, really good at his job, never met a stranger and is always willing to give a helping hand.  On the surface, it may look like he’s a heartbreaker since long term relationships have not been his habit – truth is, Spencer simply hasn’t found the woman he can see himself with for the rest of their lives.  Until Georgie.  Now convincing her that taking a chance on him, even though they work together, is going to be intriguing, and sometimes, frustrating endeavor yet Spencer is definitely up to that challenge.  Georgie’s been burned badly by her past and she’s not about to just jump into another co-worker’s arms – even though it’s tempting like wrapped presents under the tree.  Watching them come together, deal with a few bumps in their road to happiness was a charming, entertaining, and simply fun adventure.  I’ll say this about Spencer, he is stubborn especially when mistletoe is involved.

I had such fun returning to Last Stand, Texas with this couple.  If you’re in the mood for a really good story, with a couple you’ll be rooting for, and lots of mistletoe then you’ll want to get your hands on UNDER THE MISTLETOE right now.
