Nicholas Klaus is a master pastry chef, a strict disciplinarian, and the eldest son of the legendary Santa Claus. One look at café owner Lucy Brewster sends him into an unexpected tailspin of lusty desires. When Lucy is injured, Nicholas makes a decision that catapults both of their lives into turmoil ....
Lucy Brewster, the free-spirited proprietor of Sweet Inspiration, has a flair for concocting sugary confections but no time for adventure. She gets more than she bargained for when she awakens in the North Pole...rambunctious elves, a fitness-obsessed Santa, and the man of her dreams. Does she have what it takes to become the next Mrs. Klaus?
REVIEW: Penny Watson has crafted a Christmas series that so embodies the magic of Christmas in a unique North Pole to refute all stereotypes. I crave these kinds of books during the holiday season so other readers who enjoy immersing themselves in the holiday, even with their romance books, will want to try this series.
This first book is focused on Santa's eldest son, Nicholas who is set to follow in his father's foot steps only that's not really what he's good at. Through a series of scenes, his true passion comes out. And when he meets Lucy and then tragedy strikes, everything falls into perspective.
Sweet Inspiration is sweet with a little touch of spice. The pacing is steady as the relationship progresses. The combination of fantasy (the North Pole) and fiction (the romance) works well. I found myself smiling throughout the book - it's a good Christmas read.
