Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Jenny Holiday follows A Princess for Christmas with another delightful contemporary Christmas romance between a playboy baron and a woman who has said good-bye to love.

“[A] master of witty banter.” (Entertainment Weekly)

There’s a royal wedding on, and things are about to get interesting.

Meet the man of honor.

Maximillian von Hansburg, baron of Laudon and heir to the duke of Aquilla, is not having a merry Christmas. He’s been dumped by a princess, he’s unemployed, and his domineering father has sent him to New York to meet a prospective bride he has no interest in. In the city, he meets Dani Martinez, a smart (and gorgeous) professor he’s determined to befriend before their best friends marry in the Eldovian wedding of the century.

Meet the best woman.

Newly single, no-nonsense New Yorker Dani is done with love - she even has a list entitled “Things I Will Never Again Do for a Man” - which is why she hits it off with notorious rake Max. He’s the perfect partner for snow angels in Central Park and deep conversations about the futility of love.

It’s all fun and games until their friendship deepens into attraction and, oops....

Falling in love was never part of the plan.

Typical Chic Lit

Spoiler alert - if you like stories where the two main characters pretend not to like each other (we’re just friends!) for every chapter but the last few, this one’s for you! The main female character drove me crazy by the end playing dumber than dumb that the guy didn’t like her and then she has an epiphany (shocker! After she runs out on him!) that she, too, loves him. It’s just an over told story but if you like that kind of story, you’ll probably enjoy this one!
