Synopsis:

Music teacher Holly Jones is in a festive predicament. Her boyfriend just dumped her the week before Christmas, so why is she only depressed he made off with the mince pies? When the charming science teacher next door overhears the dreaded call and suggests she accompany him on his Scottish holiday retreat, she accepts, eager to spend a quiet week rediscovering herself.

Noel Coward‘s wife died on Christmas Eve three years ago. To bury the memories of that day, he spends the holidays getting drunk and watching action movies---which makes him perfect company for a fellow teacher in need of solitude. Except, instead of wallowing in his grief, Noel finds himself comforted by Holly’s presence, fascinated by her mind, and after one innocent kiss, on fire for her touch. As the snow piles up outside, the temperature inside soars, while together, they discover the human heart’s amazing capacity to heal...and love.
Have I mentioned how much I love novella's and especially Christmas themed novellas?  Well if I haven't - I'm going to now!!!   This was such a cute read and I couldn't pull myself away from this once I started.  I didn't want the story of Holly and Noel to end. 

Holly's been dumped.  And it's the week before Christmas.  She breaks down crying, only to be found by science teacher Noel.  Who takes her out for coffee to vent about what happened.  Coffee ends with Noel inviting her along on his trip to Scotland.  These two are so cute, with all the innuendos and chemistry they are trying so very hard to hide.  Both of them have been badly hurt and haven't quite healed.

Noel lost his wife three years ago, and feels guilty having feelings for another woman.  Will he overcome his fears?  Snowed in at a friends cottage they learn more and more about one another and as each day passes they fall for each other.  How could you not love this story?

Faye's story had me laughing and hoping that the characters would have their H.E.A.  Anyone who loves cute, sexy, funny contemporary romance will love this story.  I will definitely been on the lookout for more books by Faye Robertson!
