Title: The Fireman’s Christmas Wish
Author: Nan Reinhardt
Genre: Holiday Romance, Small-town contemporary romance
Her heart is wide open, but he’s nailed his shut.
Preschool teacher Harley Cole has always viewed life through rose-colored glasses. With a career she loves, friends she enjoys, and a home that is her haven, there’s only one thing missing—finding her soul mate. As the holidays approach, Harley is inspired to help her former high school crush rediscover his holiday joy. It’s just a good deed…until the feelings she thought were gone come rushing back.
Fire Chief Becker Lange returns home to River’s Edge with a heavy heart. His divorce has emotionally ravaged him, leaving him more confused than ever about what women want. So to protect himself from another failure, he closes his heart. And then Harley Cole makes him a flirty dare that she can help him overcome the holiday blues. Beck’s not sure he wants to, but Harley’s a hard woman to tell no.
Can the magic of Christmas and a sweet stray kitten bring these two lonely souls together?
Can two battered souls embrace the holidays as well as love this Christmas? Harley’s life is going great, and she has everything she could possibly want. Well, except for love. She hasn’t found the man to spend her life with, yet. With the holiday season fast approaching, she’s full of joy. Her friend Becker…not so much. He’s not been the same since his divorce. So, she decides it’s her mission to show him the holidays are a time for cheer, not gloom. Feelings she thought were long dead resurface as does her love for Becker. Does he feel the same? With the help of a stray kitten, Harley shows Becker it’s time for love this Christmas.
The Fireman’s Christmas Wish is a delightful holiday romance sure to warm your heart. I love a good Christmas romance set in a small town and this story has everything you want and more. Sexy fireman? Check. Bubbly heroine? Check. Small town? Yes. Quirky townsfolk? You bet. Holiday season? Triple check. Heartfelt romance? Ticks all the boxes. The story starts out and I connected with both Harley and Becker right away. While he has some issues to work through, she’s pure sunshine. The banter between these two is flirty fun. There’s plenty of romantic tension peppered throughout but it’s not overdone. Nan Reinhardt balances falling love and real-life problems with witty dialogue and superb descriptive narration. The plot moves at a great pace, and I found myself enjoying Christmas in this small town. Nan Reinhardt has penned a heartfelt holiday romance. If you binge-read romances set during the holidays, pick up The Fireman’s Christmas Wish. Highly recommend!
