Karen Wallace's festive spirit has gone A.W.O.L three days before Christmas. Her perfect solution? Take a road trip to spend the holidays with her friend's family. Then a broken down car leaves Karen stranded at her friend's brother's house, along with his Grinch-like but kind-of-cute, roommate, Art. Short of Santa's magic direct from the North Pole, nothing will make the next few days bearable. Not even Art's stolen kisses beneath the Christmas stars.
Art Donnelly doesn't believe in magic anymore-the Christmas kind especially. As a scientist working at one of New Zealand's most picturesque star-gazing observatories, he believes that what you see is what you get. Planets, solar systems, and black holes are more reliable than joy, peace, and love. But love doesn't play by the rules of the universe, and Karen might just change his perception of the Silly Season forever.
Praise for Tracey Alvarez's books!

"Just as the must-read series of Donna Kauffman (The Bachelors of Blueberry Cove), Jill Shalvis (Lucky Harbor), Terri Osburn (Anchor Island), Marie Force (The McCarthys of Gansett Island), Sherryl Woods (Chesapeake Shores) have entranced me with their seaside settings and caring communities - so has Tracey Alvarez - and I'm adding her series to my must-read shelf too."~ Fab Fantasy Fiction

Fuelled by copious amounts of coffee, she's the author of sexy and sweet romances set predominantly in New Zealand. Small towns, close communities, and families are a big part of the heartwarming stories she writes. Oh, and hot, down-to-earth heroes--Kiwi men, in other words.
When she's not writing, thinking about writing, or procrastinating about writing, Tracey can be found with her nose in her e-reader, nibbling on smuggled chocolate bars, or bribing her kids to take over the housework.
