Always authentic, Assistant Mall Manager Joy Danser insists that her mall Santas must have real beards so children can believe. But even she is unprepared for the very real Santa who visits her bed invisibly this Christmas season. Is she dreaming, or has she gone mad? Joy consults Sophia Nardiz, manager of the Magical Gypsy shop at her mall. Sophia reads her palm and gives her a cryptic message: Joy is at a crossroads, and she must trust her intuition.
Owner of the Magical Gypsy chain and a true Gypsy himself, Nick Polaris is thrilled to play Joy’s Santa, in the mall and in her bed, but he knows it’s only a lark. For true love, he’ll need someone with Gypsy blood. Must he renounce the Scottish redhead he enjoys so much?
EXCERPT – PG
Sophia and Joy have just shared their first lovemaking.
“Who said anything about moving in?” Sophia shook her head. “I may be too fatigued for this conversation. Oh! You think I still live with Nick, don’t you?”
“Not for two years or so.”
Sophia sobered. “Nick needs to find a wife and have a family…”
“…I can’t have children. I love Nick and always will. But our people expect, need him to have heirs.”
“We still get together now and then, but we’re clear about what we have and don’t have.”
“I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”
“That’s fate.” Sophia shrugged. “So Nick’s not a problem for you or for us.”
“Apparently.” Joy shuddered. “In an off handed way, he asked to escort me to the Christmas Ball. I thought he was kidding.”
“Nick doesn’t do off handed very well. He only says what he means.”
“But he’s looking for a wife.” Joy felt her eyes round. “I’m not wife material.”
Sophia laughed. “I could debate that, but you don’t have to worry. Nick can only marry a woman with at least some gypsy blood. You don’t have gypsy blood do you?”
“No. I highly doubt that. So that makes me safe. I’m Scottish through and through.
