Thoughtful and determined characters,
a tightly woven plot with a fun premise and some scorching romantic activities elevate Burton's latest from good to great. She doesn't take her plot on wild tangents; rather, she keeps the story focused on Maria and Colin and lets some natural character development carry the story. A strong work relationship evolves artlessly and sensually into
a deeper bond in this breezy holiday-themed story.

Dedicated domestic violence counselor Maria Perez has seen the worst life has to offer. For once, she'd like to experience the joys of love, sex and men. That's where an explicit letter to Santa Claus and Detective Colin Maguire come in. He has plans to fulfill every naughty desire on her wish list, but will Maria regret letting her desires go unleashed? (, dl $2.99)
