Publisher's Summary

Retired military colonel Caleb Edgington has spent two long years trying to achieve the most important mission objective of his life - but not behind enemy lines. He's trying to capture a woman with a broken heart. Having lost at love once, he understands being gun shy. The residual fears from Carlotta Buckley's nasty divorce have stood between them, but he's done with that. And he's got the perfect strategy to lure her in... Carlotta never thought she'd fall in love again. Once bitten, she's now more than twice shy. And Caleb is everything she can't handle - fierce, relentless, uncompromising... sexual. She's managed to mostly avoid him, but now his son and her daughter need their help. Can Caleb and the spirit of the season convince her that she's ready to take a chance on love again?
Contains mature themes.

The Naughty Wickedness Continues......

This is the story of the patriarch of the Edgington family and their friends (each has a full-length book available in the wicked series).

This will review WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS so do not read further unless you do not care if you are listening in order.

The author does a good job, making this a standalone, although I enjoy listening to books in order when it comes to series.

Colonel Caleb Edgington's son has married Kata and throughout the marriage Carlotta (Kata's mother.) Since the He 2 years of their first meeting he has become very fond of and in lust with her.

This romance of an "older" generations is playfully thought out with a bit of past drama rearing its ugly head.

Contains mature themes including intimate scenes, BDSM and very strong language. Be advised if this is not you.

Short pleasant story to add to series

Not much to this story. It brings in other characters from the series and is a nice Christmas story though I can't imagine being thrilled about not being able to choose and decorate my own home. Not much of a plot but it moved the series forward a bit.
