Who needs mistletoe? 

Most people wouldn't think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn't most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she's been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that — but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once...

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don't mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he's shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly's brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can't believe he's drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who's the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he's ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he's been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

Review: Hot Winter Nights was my first Jill Shalvis book and boy was it a fun ride, it is the sixth book in the Heartbreaker Bay series but for someone who has not read the previous books, Hot Winter Nights can easily be read as a standalone since every book focuses on a new couple.

Going into the book I expected a Christmas romance and from the blurb I knew there would be some type of suspense but what I didn't anticipate was falling adorably in love with Molly and Lucas, these two made such an awesome pair and had me smiling ear to ear so many times not to mention I found myself laughing out loud at quite a few of their antics as well. Shalvis couldn't have written a better pair, the chemistry between the two was off the charts and they just gave me all sorts of feels.

I also really liked how Shalvis had two heavily flawed characters, both Molly and Lucas have their own baggage and scars to deal with, things that happened in the past that neither one of them have fully dealt with which prevents them from getting close to anyone. So it was interesting seeing the two grow and trust and eventually love again.

Overall I really enjoyed reading Hot Winter Nights it was a perfect blend of romance, suspense, and humor and I'm actually looking forward to the next book in the series and might even go back and read a few of the previous novels, I'm especially curious about Archer so definitely going to pick that one up.

About the author
Jill lives with her family in a small town in the Sierras full of quirky characters (Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is mostly coincidental). She does most of her writing on her deck surrounded by more animals than humans. Which is quite astonishing considering she’s a city girl who was plucked from the wilds of L.A. to the wilds of the Sierra’s. Most of her books come from a combination of hard work, cookies, and hot guy pics, and not necessarily in that order.

Jill often travels to reader weekends & conventions where she LOVES getting to meet and hang-out with readers. The only problem being she tends to get lost in her hotels. So if you ever see NYTimes Bestselling author Jill Shalvis roaming the halls, someone please return her immediately.
