Finance genius Meredith Klaus prefers numbers to people, especially around the holidays. At least the large sum of money that’s mysteriously vanished from the company accounts will distract her from the ghosts of Christmases past. Until her sexy boss asks her to be his last-minute date to a fundraiser gala, that is, and the promise of a special evening calls to something long-buried in her. Andrew Stanton, Manhattan’s best-known philanthropist, has worked hard building his reputation in the industry. He offers to work closely with Meredith to fix his company’s financial crisis, but the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to look at her as just a colleague. A beautiful dress. A handsome man on her arm. A challenge she can’t refuse. Can they find the missing money and fulfill their holiday wishes, or will Meredith be unable to overcome the demons of her past and lose her chance at happiness?td>

This was such a cute romance and one of the few contemporary romances where I loved both of the main characters. Meredith was a breath of fresh air-she had a crummy childhood, but was able to overcome it and is now the CFO working for Andrew Stanton. I loved how Andrew had to work to get her to like him, and how she slowly gave in.

I've got to be honest-I read this awhile back and can't remember much of the storyline except for the fact that it left a smile on my face! I remember thinking that I wished it were longer because it just made me sigh with contentment. It had a holiday theme, and I read it in one sitting. This was a novella I just plain loved. ;)
