Christmas comes just once a year . . . but true love lasts a lifetime

Kitty Shakespeare moved from London to LA to make it in the film business - but unfortunately talent isn't enough when interviews make you crumble. When she's finally offered a job as a nanny to a major producer's son, she snaps up the chance to at least make some contacts over the holiday. But she hadn't counted on getting drawn into the Hollywood mogul's messed up family, nor on his sexy-and-grumpy-as-hell brother, Adam.

Adam Klein may be sexy, but he's also gruff, rude and completely impossible. Love at first sight this is not . . . but since when did the road to a Hollywood happy ending ever run smooth?

A heartwarming Shakespeare Sisters romance from the bestselling author of Summer's Lease and Fix You.

'Perfect for a cold winter's afternoon.' Linda's Book Bag
