I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
"Skylar Tempest has never understood Alec Hunter’s appeal. So what if he’s a world-renowned historian? He’s also cynical, aloof and determined to think the worst of her. So when a twist of fate finds her spending the lead-up to Christmas with Alec and his family, she’s not expecting the season to be either merry or bright.
Alec has learned the hard way not to trust beautiful women—and Skylar is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. But as he watches her throw herself into his family’s festive chaos, Alec realises there is far more to this blonde bombshell than meets the eye.
With Christmas around the corner, Alec and Skylar return to Puffin Island, a tentative bond forged between them. Neither intends to fall in love but as the nights become darker, and the fire between them grows hotter, could this be the chance for Alec and Skylar to find their own happy ending?"
This book makes me want Christmas to start now! The descriptions of both an English Christmas in the countryside and Christmas on Puffin Island are fantastic; I could practically feel the freezing cold outside and the beautiful heat and smell of the log fire inside.
The characters were vibrant and likeable and the story was really romantic. I loved that they were both really passionate about their fields of interest and that they found common ground.
My only criticism of this book is that some of the conversations between Alec and Sky started to feel slightly repetitive as they kept talking about why they couldn't be together. However, the ending was absolutely lovely.
This is the perfect book to snuggle up with as the weather gets colder. 4 out of 5 from me.
