It’s so nice when he’s naughty

Stella Jackson would rather stab herself in the eye with her own stiletto than return to England. Especially in winter. But to fulfill her grandfather’s last wish, she has to spend Christmas at the estate she inherited from him…with the one man she wishes she could forget.

Self-made millionaire Evan Foss wants one thing from Stella—her estate. But thanks to their rocky past, he’s the last person she’ll sell to. So when she takes him up on a bet, with the estate as the prize, Evan can’t believe his luck. The only problem is that seeing her now, sexy and all grown up, tempts Evan to finish what started years ago between them.

 

Review

I’ve enjoyed every book by Ms. London that I’ve read, so I jumped at the chance to read this story. MILLIONAIRE UNDER THE MISTLETOE is a lighthearted and sweet season-appropriate story and my favorite thing about it was the English setting.

Stella Jackson is not happy to be returning to England after her last trip left her with a broken heart, but she needs to return to settle her grandfather’s estate and she hopes to do so very quickly and return home with little drama. Unfortunately, luck isn’t on her side when she finds herself on the same flight as the man she was hoping to avoid. 

Evan Foss regrets the way things ended between him and Stella but she has something that he wants so badly that he willing to brave her anger to secure it, but what he does not expect is that the chemistry between them is still as explosive as it was. He’s got a major task on his hands trying to keep his desire for Stella in check while negotiations between them are in progress, but it’s not possible.

Ms. London combines really fun and flirty dialogue with passionate interludes in a very engaging way usually, but that did not really work here for me because of the characters. Evan had a major chip on his shoulder about his poor beginnings and Stella was quite dull and boring and also very stubborn. I couldn’t understand why she held on to her grudge against Evan for so long and her refusal to sell to him. The stories about Stella’s late grandfather made him more interesting me that Evan and Stella.

Overall, it was an okay read, if a bit predictable.

 

 

About Stefanie London

Growing up, Stefanie came from a family of women who loved to read. Her favourite activity was going shopping with her Nan during school holidays, where she would sit on the floor of the bookstore with her little sister and painstakingly select the books to spend her allowance on.  Thankfully, Nan was a patient woman.

Thus, it was no surprise Stefanie was the sort of student who would read her English books before the semester started. After sneaking several literature subjects into her ‘very practical’ Business degree, she got a job in Communications. When writing emails and newsletters didn’t fulfil her creative urges, she turned to fiction and was finally able to write the stories that kept her mind busy at night.

Now she lives with her very own hero and dreams of travelling the world. She frequently indulges in her passions for good coffee, French perfume, high heels and zombie movies. Recently she gave up her day job to write sexy, contemporary romance stories and she couldn’t be happier.
