Peppa Grant’s fellow employees may call their new CEO Mr. McSexy, but she’s also heard that he’s aloof and distant. Cameron McCormac certainly seems cold toward Christmas when she meets him at the company’s annual party…but he’s also the sexiest man Peppa has ever seen. And when he offers to forgive the damage she accidentally caused to his expensive car in exchange for accompanying him to his family’s holiday get-together, she agrees.Cameron needs a date to the family party to get his matchmaking relatives off his back. Their chemistry is instant and undeniable, leading to an incredible one-night stand. But Peppa wants love and family, while Cameron’s only interested in temporary pleasure. When their relationship takes an unexpectedly serious turn, will he run the other way—or will he give love a second chance?



When the entertainment for her work’s children’s Christmas Eve party cancels, Peppa quickly runs out and rents a fairy costume. On her way back she accidentally side swipes the CEO’s car in the parking lot. When she approaches Cameron to fess up to what happened, he doesn’t seem at all worried about the car. Instead he is more interested in taking her to his Aunt’s Christmas Eve party.

Cameron dislikes holidays and being around the family. They make him uncomfortable and remind him of the things that he lost. When he was still a kid he lost his parents in a plane crash and only a few years ago lost his wife as well. When Cameron sees the sexy hired entertainment he comes up with a plan to get his persistent matchmaking family off his back. He makes a deal with her, if she goes to his Aunt’s Christmas party with him, he will forget about the dent she put in his vehicle.

This is a story about two people who were hurt by love. Penelope’s ex-fiance dumps her and remarries almost instantly when she miscarries their child and finds out that she might never conceive again. Cameron is still scared of opening up and loving someone just to lose them. Even though there was nothing really different with this story, it was still a pleasure to read.

When Peppa calls in sick, Cameron takes the rest of the day off from work and rushes to her house with his version of a sick kit. He bought a bunch of different medicines, ginger-ale and a stack of chick flick romance movies to watch with her.
