Title: Christmas Sparks
Author: Ginny Frost
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Kindergarten teacher, Margaret Porter, is looking forward to the best Christmas holiday in years. Without her irresponsible ex-husband causing chaos, she and her two children can finally have a fun, peaceful celebration. Everything looks picture perfect until her living room catches fire. Volunteer firefighter, Ryan Kramer, never knew what hit him when he rescues a reluctant and quick-tempered Margaret from her burning home. But it’s more than sympathy for her situation that gets under his skin. Her sassy, no-nonsense attitude bowls him over. Margaret finds her family rescued by Ryan again and again. Something about him speaks to her soul, and she discovers it hard to resist him. Unlike her careless and manipulative ex-husband, Ryan’s nothing but wonderful throughout the entire ordeal. As Ryan investigates the damage to Margaret’s home, he discovers his family’s business, Kramer and Sons, worked on the fire-ravaged room. Did shoddy work by his family put a single mom and her two kids out in the cold at Christmas? Can Margaret see beyond his last name and fall for him too?
The surrounding air sizzled. Then a huge boom filled their ears. A wall of pressure smashed into them. His feet left the ground, and the universe clicked into slow motion. Acting on instinct, he twisted, curling the woman into his chest. She squeaked as they tumbled headlong into the snow.
His back crashed against the piled snow on the lawn. Her weight smashed against his torso, forcing the breath from his lungs. He closed his eyes for a beat, screaming a mental “Oww.” When she groaned in his arms, his training kicked in.
Rolling over quickly, but gently, he placed the woman on the snow. He knocked off his helmet and shoved the SCBA to the side, scanning her up and down for injuries.
Haloed by the gleaming snow, the thirty-something woman with pale skin stared up at him. Her pretty face shone pink with exertion. Her brown eyes sparkled with unspoken fury, or maybe fear, as she gasped for breath. Papers scattered around her like rose petals on a bed.
Something deep inside him opened up and his heart called out. He swallowed hard, trying to resist the call of insta-love.
Leaning over her, restraining the rush of lust, he asked, “Are you all right, miss?” Her gaze remained blank, her lips twitching. He should’ve been concerned about a head injury, but his testosterone-soaked brain said, “gorgeous.” It didn’t help they were pressed together in the snow. “Miss?”
Slowly, her liquid brown eyes fixed on his, the faraway stare fading. With seemingly great effort, she raised a hand to his cheek, her face tilting slightly.
The instinct to kiss her surged in his chest and other areas, but he held back. Her lips opened, and Ryan believed he'd found the woman of his dreams. Rescuing her from a fire, saving her life…
She placed her whole hand over his face and shoved him away—rather unexpected, considering the romantic tension in the air. Thank God, she didn’t dig her nails in.
Ryan’s mouth hung open, words failing.
She, on the other hand, had no problem speaking her mind. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?” She heaved him off her and stood up.
“The fire, miss. I… I was rescuing you.”

What I love most about the holiday season:
My love for Christmas stems from family. It’s a time when families come together and celebrate love, joy, and hope. Arguments and ill will are forgotten and we can just be. It’s the one time of year I get to actually see my extended family in person.
