Passion and a Pear Tree By Tawny Taylor Book 7 in the Twelve Quickies of Christmas series What does a prudish, self-proclaimed loner do when a nearly naked man jumps out of an oversized Christmas gift, sings a slightly racy version of the Twelve Days of Christmas, and promises to make her deepest desires come true? She goes for it, of course, and has the best twenty-four hours of her life. But at the stroke of midnight, the spell ends, and her happy holidays take an unexpected turn. Alone again, there's only one thing she wishes for: a little Christmas magic to bring back the man who taught her the joy of giving.

Fifteen years later, she whispers her deepest wish into Santa's ear at a Christmas benefit, only to discover he is someone who was part of that unfortunate and embarrassing time of her life. Mortified, she plans an early exit from the party, but Santa has different ideas. Sam Coble always wanted to get to know the girl behind the reputation, and now that she is an accomplished, independent woman, thatdetermination spurs him to action.

Cole's Christmas Eve invitation, (a thrilling night of eggnog and movies), is the wake up call Amy needs to get over her crush. Little does she know that Cole has planned a seduction, (complete with erotic Christmas gifts), that will turn her into his willing holiday slave.
