Julie Brannagh’s delightful Love and Football series returns in time for Christmas ...

Holly Reynolds has a secret. Make that two. The first involves upholding her grandmother’s hobby of answering Dear Santa letters from dozens of local schoolchildren. The second ... well, he just came strolling in the door.

For the last two years, Holly has not been able to stop thinking about gorgeous Seattle Shark Derrick Collins. His on-field exploits induce nightmares in quarterbacks across the NFL, but she knows he has a heart of gold.

Derrick has never known a woman he wanted to bring home to meet his family, mostly because he keeps picking the wrong ones—until he runs into sweet, shy Holly Reynolds. Different from anyone he’s ever known, Derrick realizes she might just be everything he needs.

When he discovers her holiday letter writing, he is determined to play Santa too. And as the pair team up to bring joy to one little boy very much in need, they discover the most precious Christmas gift of all: love.

Review Time:

You will enjoy this sweet Christmas novella with lots of fun, great characters, and romance and you will love NFL star Derrick and sweet Holly. This is a feel good story filled with warmth and heart as well as a sense of small town community. The lead characters bring Christmas happiness to a special unselfish little boy while they fall in love during the magic of the Christmas season. I have never read a story by Ms Brannagh before, but I will be looking to pick up stories on her backlist.


She sat down at the table and got to work, making notes on places she could start looking for Michael and his family. The printing on Michael’s letter looked more like a junior high student’s than a child in elementary school; she could call the principal later today. Noel’s Santa Claus was a friendly, retired gentleman who’d been doing the job for twenty years now. The kids who had come to see him in previous years were now bringing their own kids, and he remembered them all. The owner of Noel’s candy shop knew a lot of local children too. There had to be more places that kids hung out in this town besides the playground in the town square. She’d ask her grandma later if she had any more ideas.
