“Be Mine This Christmas Night” By L.A. Sartor is the first book in a series. It is yet another book that has a best-selling author for a heroine.
Annie is a best-selling author of children’s books that feature stars. She teaches young children that human beings were created by stars. Each of us has star dust in us, and that is how the stars guide our lives.
Her father was a country doctor, and he started the tradition of hanging Christmas lights on the house. Annie still continues the tradition, and hosts a lighting party when she turns them on. The new neighbor, Cole, comes over and introduces himself and his two young sons. One of his sons, Josh, is a big fan of her books. They soon become friends.
Neither of them wants to be more than friends at the beginning. Cole is still trying to recover from the death of his wife two years ago. Annie has her own issues from her ex-fiancé.
The story is well written. The love scenes are hot, but tastefully described. While the story is nothing new, it is pleasantly told, adequately foreshadowed and motivated, and comes to a nice ending. However, I disagreed with the religious message of astrology mixed into a book that was being marketed to Christians that celebrate Christmas. While I liked Cole, I didn’t respect Annie.
