Description: Being the only mortal in a world of magical elves isn't easy for Chrissy Star, especially at Christmastime. Feeling as if she's in the way, she escapes Christmas Town and her duties as CFO for a week long vacation on a Greece isle. If she could have her Christmas wish, she'd meet a man who would not only heat up her love life, but understand her unusual family. Nick Christopoulus has met Chrissy before, but a lot has changed in five years. She may not remember him, but he's never forgotten her. He wants more than just a holiday fling. When she leaves after a hot night of magical sex, he's determined to track her down. But how can Nick, a non-believer, find a magical place called Christmas Town?

As she tipped her face up for his kiss, her heart thundered and she wondered if another moment in her life would ever again be this perfect. She knew it wouldn't. This was what she had. Tonight, tomorrow, and the rest of her vacation, but then it all had to end, just like the holidays.
The idea of never kissing Nick again, never making love with him again, made her cling harder to him. He groaned and wrapped her tighter in his arms, his hands cupping her rear end through her sundress and lifting her up against him. When neither could breathe properly, she broke away and raked her fingers through her windblown hair.
Nick caught her hand again and pulled her down to sit with him on the beach. She drew her knees up and wrapped her arms around her legs, tucking her dress around her. Her bare feet dug into the still warm sand.
"What's wrong?" he asked.
Chrissy turned to look at him. Her heart leapt as she studied his strong angular features, his dark hair, and even though the moon shadowed them she knew how brown his eyes were. He was so good looking. "Why do you hate Christmas as much as you do?"
Nick furrowed his brow and leaned back on his elbows. "Does it matter?"
She chewed her lip, wondering the same thing. Why was she pushing an issue that she knew was going to drive a wedge between them? Was that what she was trying to do? Push him away because she knew in a few days she'd have to let him go anyway?
