Most lovers can’t wait to celebrate their first Christmas together –
but for Suzy and Garrett, the special season comes with a few surprises
I got the happily-ever-after that I had always hoped for. My life in New York seems like a fairy-tale – though my knight is not a white one. He is all the colours of the rainbow, and I love him more and more with each passing day.
Despite my happiness, I miss my home. I miss my parents. I miss my friends.
I wish I knew of a way to combine my past life with my present.
Maybe I can wish for a little Christmas magic?
She’s my light – the only one who can see into the depths of my soul. I’ll do anything to keep her happy. I wish she would let me inside her mind so I can help erase the shadows from her eyes.
Our happiness is interrupted when my family find themselves in trouble. I have to help them get back on the right track before it’s too late.
All they want is a Merry Christmas, but how is that possible when the outside world won’t let them?
***Author’s Note: This is a novella in the Believe Series and it is important that you read Fool for Love first.***
When Karen Ferry announced that she would be writing a Christmas novella, the thought of reacquainting with any characters from her Make Me Believe Series had me giddy with excitement. Finding out it was Suzy and Garrett; and the possibility of Christmas in New York, set up the scene for what I knew would be a perfect read.
Christmas Wishes is both a mixture of hot and heavy. Reminding readers of the undeniable chemistry between Suzy and Garrett, Karen Ferry effortlessly weaves in an intriguingly complex storyline. Not often seen in a novella, Christmas Wishes is action packed. Garrett and Suzy, amidst a multitude of secondary characters, face some very life changing obstacles. With Christmas supposed to be a time of joy and cheer, it seems this festive season wants to test Garrett and Suzy; trying to taint their happiness with heartache.
Karen Ferry once again shows how she is growing as an author and storyteller. Exploring Garrett and Suzy’s sexual chemistry, highlighting their compatibility as a couple and keeping readers engrossed from beginning to end, this novella is so much more than it’s compact word count. Christmas Wishes will have readers falling in love with the old characters, new characters and even those not so prominent characters. Christmas Wishes but confirms Karen Ferry’s status as an instant go-to author for many readers.
“Never thought it would happen,” he whispers. His hand moves from my breast, up my neck, then finally rests on my jaw. He traces my lips with his fingers, and a delicious shiver runs down my spine. The pads are rough, but his touch is as light as a feather.
My heart melts.
“You never thought what would happen?”
His eyes roam my face as he makes me wait for his answer. The heat in them makes my breaths grow more shallow, and it feels as if every part of my being is singed from his fire.
“Never thought I’d find a woman who’d be able to pull me out of the darkness.”
I stop breathing for a moment. My eyes prickle as tears gather in them.
It’s so rare that he talks about his past now, that it always takes me by surprise when he mentions it.
His eyes stop their perusal as he touches his forehead to mine for a short moment.
“Never thought I’d be so lucky,” he murmurs.
My arms constrict around his neck.
“Never thought one woman’s smile would light me up from within like yours always does.”
“Please stop,” I whisper, my voice trembling from the love that I can feel touching my soul in his every word.
“My love.” His lips brush mine, and I lift my head, trying to deepen his kiss. He won’t have any of it, though. Both of his hands come down to frame my face, and his thumbs sweep my hair away, baring me completely before him. As always, I yield to his will, even though patience is the last thing on my mind right now.
“You’re going to make me bawl like a baby,” I sniffle, trying to smile.
He laughs low, the deep rumble that I love so dearly, but it’s gone as quickly as it started.
“I hope I’ll never stop being worthy of the love you have given me so freely.”
Even before he’s done talking, I shake my head.
“I promise – I swear – that’ll never happen, honey.”
