Sugar, Spice, and...a Gingerbread Man? The clock is ticking for Chance Graham. If he doesn’t find his mate by Christmas, he’ll be forced to live life as a giant gingerbread man forever. But finding a mate isn’t as simple as it sounds…

Holly Berryman dreams of a romance like in the movies she loves to watch every Christmas season. When fate brings a chance meeting with a sexy man dressed as Santa, Holly finds herself the star of her very own holiday movie.

Official published review:

A little holiday magic

I absolutely love obscure shifters, and this has to be one of the best! The story is super sweet and made just for the holiday magic. The author created this fantastic world where her amazing characters live and love. I enjoyed the sappy love story between the main characters, and the author incorporated the best sidekicks who I really hope get love stories of their own. This book is an amazing way to grab that Hallmark feeling and delve right into the holiday spirit.
