 All Quinn wants for Christmas is quiet. She can’t afford a tree, and she doesn’t have any family to celebrate—except for Tara, the little sister she inherited from her mother. She especially doesn’t want to have anything to do with Morgan, the guy across the hall who broke her heart. But when Quinn finds out that Tara still believes in Santa, she must put aside her feelings for Morgan long enough to make a little Christmas magic. The only problem is, he keeps finding ways to make her crazy. If she makes it through the holidays without getting her heart broken, it will be the best Christmas ever.

“The Santa Pact” is a standalone short story that takes place between Crazy Comes in Threes and the second novel in the series.

Keywords: new adult, holiday, christmas, winter, romance, coming of age, mental illness, depression, bipolar disorder, growing pains.
