This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.
I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling Ahren.
Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life. Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.
He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays. A recluse of the worst kind, Sterling makes Scrooge look like a generous soul… except Ebenezer was never this sexy.
He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and forget to use condoms. I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him. Between my overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out.
Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go. He wants me home for the holidays… and this is my last chance to make a Christmas miracle happen.
One thing I know for sure: when Sterling and I collide, it’s going to be anything but a silent night.
Funny, touching, and delightful, this smoking hot billionaire holiday rom-com by Claudia Burgoa will make you feel the magic of Christmas.

Juniper “June” Spearman’s life is not working out as she had hoped. By now June was hoping to be married and starting to have a family… instead she is painfully single and longing for a baby so she decides to take matters into her own hands unbeknownst to her overprotective family. Deciding to try IVF to have a baby, June decides to head to Denver for a doctor who specializes in it. While trying to find a place to rent for a month, June has a run-in with sexy voiced, rude man at The Art of Real-State. He may be rude but June is enjoying sparring with him.
While in Denver June spends time with her family for Thanksgiving but first ends up meeting a mysterious guy in a bar and decides to have one last fling before hopefully getting pregnant. What she doesn’t know is that he is the same sexy voiced, rude man who also happens to be Sterling Ahren, a renowned artist, and owner of the house she is renting while she is in Denver!
When arriving at the rental, she accidentally locks her keys in the car and is left out in a blizzard while waiting for someone to show up. When Sterling finds her almost frozen to death, he decides to bring her back to his penthouse instead to take care of her. When June finally wakes up she realizes that he is the man from her one night stand but doesn’t realize that he is Sterling Ahren, so he introduces himself and that is when the fun begins.
Sterling is so drawn to her and wants her to stay with him but she keeps fighting him all the way. When he finally convinces June to stay he feels content. As June and Sterling spend more time together things heat up really quick. They find contentment in each other. Just when it looks like things are going perfect between the two of them, a little wrench gets thrown into the mix and everyone’s well planned out lives take a one-eighty degree turn!
It will take a whole lot of soul searching between these two to finally get to their happy ending but when they finally do it was well worth it! I just loved June and Sterling. The one thing June always wanted, Sterling thought he never did but it’s funny how life can change. Together these two just worked. This was a wonderful holiday story!
