Release day: Santa and the Saddler
Today is the official release of Santa and the Saddler by Cathryn Hein (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
He’s found the girl of his dreams, but she’s just passing through. Can he turn fleeting Christmas magic into forever?
Windmill fabricator Danny Burroughs doesn’t have time to wait in line at the local saddler—no matter how pretty the girl behind the counter—he’s juggling two jobs as it is. But his little sister has her heart set on a special piece of saddlery for Christmas and he can’t let her down.
Expert saddler Beth Wells has no idea that when she comes to small town Levenham to look after her grandfather’s shop she’ll be swamped with customers. Overrun by day, Beth is forced to work late into the night on Christmas orders. The last thing she needs is another.
When super-cute Danny arrives at the saddlery after midnight wearing a Santa suit, a broad grin and pleading she make his sister’s present, Beth makes a deal—she will take the order in exchange for Danny’s help. Except this flirty Santa’s idea of helping involves more than stacking shelves, and in the confines of the saddlery their smouldering attraction soon becomes a blaze. But no matter how hopelessly drawn she is, Beth has a job interstate and a mum who needs her. Anything more than friendship is pointless.
Will these two chance-met strangers find the courage to gamble on their love? Or will the girl Danny’s been looking for all his life leave nothing behind but a sweet Christmas memory?
Cathryn dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
If you adore a sweet Christmas story full of fun and family, then Santa and the Saddler is for you. Danny and Beth are so cute with their banter and games, and were an absolute delight to write. With Beth only being in town for a short time and Danny desperate to convince her to stay, the ticking clock on their relationship adds extra spice. This is a romance full of Christmas magic that I promise will make you smile. It certainly did me!
