would think Chrissy Wallace’s attention would be on
the giant Santa being hoisted into the sleigh on top of her grandparents’
house, not on the perfectly proportioned, jean-clad backside of the hunky man
doing the work. In her defense, standing on the ladder as he was, the man had a
damn fine ass to look at—the perfect peach shape a woman could sink her heels
into and ride to the finish line. She’d bet he’d dig those long, thick fingers
of his deep into her butt and hold her in place while he pounded her into the
hand clasped firmly around the steering wheel, she used the other to fan the
heat from her face. This was what happened when she hadn’t had sex in nine
months. With her grandparents on vacation and her house-sitting for them, what
were the odds she could get lucky? An hour away from home with none of the
small-town ogling that went with it? It’d be so much easier than looking for a
hookup in one of the clubs on Palm Canyon Drive. If he was helping out her
grandparents, he’d already been vetted. So…hell yeah, she was going to go for
it. Providing he was available, of course.
Please, let him be
available. He can be my Christmas present.

These must be “the nice young men who moved in next door” her grandmother had

handled the decoration like it weighed nothing, and she knew for a fact the
thing weighed a ton and was awkward as hell. Much as she loved it, Santa and
his sleigh had been the bane of her family’s existence for as long as she could
remember. A chore to be avoided at all cost, only to be done under duress and
pleading from Grandma to put the decoration in place. Someone always caved.
With her grandparents heading out for a Baja cruise, everyone thought they’d be
spared this year, especially since Chrissy’s parents were going too. Well…they had been spared. Someone else had been
pressed into service.
Probably fell prey
to Grandma’s charming smile and bright blue eyes. For a woman nearing seventy,
Grandma still knew how to work it. Oh, to have a snippet of that power.
man on the ladder joined his partner on the roof, taking a stance on the other
side of Santa. Seeing their matching smiles made her mouth drop open. Twins. Decisions, decisions. Surely one of them
was unattached. Maybe both? Oh, the fantasies that wrought.
snapped her jaw shut and pulled into the driveway next to Pops’s Prius. Grandma
waved at her, love beaming from her eyes. Chrissy was embarrassed to admit she
hadn’t seen her standing there until that moment. Her attention had been
riveted elsewhere. She sneaked a final mouthwatering glance upward, then cut

Grandma hurried her way, arms open.
was conscious of the men above, wondering if they were looking, possibly

check her breath, flash them a smile that broadcasted her need. She hugged
