Image of Moonlight Over Manhattan (From Manhattan with Love)

In the sixth From Manhattan with Love tale, Morgan once again makes New York shine — this time with a sexy, unpredictable holiday tale about a doctor with a heart of ice and the woman who’s hot enough to thaw it. Using her expressive, clever, titillating narrative and her brilliant dedication to even the smallest detail, she weaves an unforgettable story that’s funny and heartfelt, showing off Manhattan in all its Christmas finery and cleverly connecting another series. Her two- and four-legged costars are exceptional, but it’s her compassionate, resilient heroine and cynical, driven hero who make this the perfect must-read on a cold winter’s night.

When shy Manhattan dog walker Harriet Knight’s Christmas challenge to find Mr. Right lands her in the ER with a sprained ankle (while escaping her latest date with Mr. Wrong), she knows she needs a different strategy. When the hot ER doc who treats her becomes an unexpected client she wonders what fate is trying to tell her. Dr. Ethan Black is in total control in his chaotic ER, but he’s in way over his head temporarily caring for his sister’s precious pooch. But when the pet professional his sister hires to help him turns out to be a beautiful former ER patient, things start definitely looking up. (HQN, Nov., 400 pp., $7.99)
