Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, but lust refused to settle in for a long winter's nap. She might be all nestled, snug in her bed, by why, oh why, do visions of the wrong guy dance in her head?
Jessica, (not Jessie), figures that nothing could be better than a trip to the Emerald Isle for Christmas break. So she takes a flying leap and follows her boyfriend home for the holidays, not only sure that he will finally agree they're destined for each other, but also that Ireland will provide the perfect backdrop to the beginning of their happily-ever-after.
But it turns out his family--and his gorgeous ex-girlfriend--don't feel the same way, and even the family goat seems to be conspiring against her well-laid plans. The only person making the trip worthwhile is the very last one she should be thinking about, but Grady, the local farmhand, has a way of showing up when Jessica needs him most...and least.
USA Today bestselling author Lyla Payne wraps up the perfect holiday novella, ties it with a ribbon of romance, and tops it with a light dusting of snow. Perfect to curl up with under the tree. Just add hot cocoa!
Mistletoe & Mr. Right was basically written about one of my fantasies, lol. The main character, JESSICA (ahem!), goes to Ireland during Christmas (yes!), and falls in love with a hot Irishman (yes, PLEASE!). Ok, so maybe it’s not a current fantasy, seeing as how I’m engaged and all, but who hasn’t fantasized about this type of scenario?!
It wasn’t quite that magical for Jessica though. She actually goes to Ireland to surprise her boyfriend, who doesn’t seem all that excited that she’s there. Then! His family doesn’t get her, and THEN there’s the hot, super easy to talk to farm hand who is also an amazing photographer. What is a girl to do! Oh, but to top things off? A certain character gets added to the mix mid story that can’t possibly make things better for Jessica.
The characters are great fun, and the story has just the right amount of emotion to make you feel connected to these characters. I completely enjoyed it! And it’s totally perfect for the holidays.
