Bah, humbug! All Cara Talbot wants for Christmas is for it to be over. The workaholic accountant has good reason to hate Christmas, along with charmers like actor Nick Gallagher, playing celebrity Santa at the failing London department store she has the thankless job of managing.
She’s determined to save her staff’s jobs, Hollywood golden boy Nick just wants to live up to his Mr Unattached reputation and enjoy life. They couldn’t be more opposite. But if accepting Nick’s dare – dates showing her the magic of a London Christmas – can raise enough publicity to keep the store open, she’ll do it. Even if she risks falling in love with him in the process.
Can this surprising Santa allow love to deepen his untested faith and learn to commit, while helping Ms Scrooge believe in Christmas, and in God, once more?
Includes Santa costumes, kissing, and past heartbreak to overcome, as well as British spelling.
