Alex Corrigan is in love with his boss, Judge Lawson Daniels, and thinks those feelings are returned. That assumption is sorely tested two days before the court holiday party they’re organizing together, when the venue calls and cancels, followed by a snafu with the caterer. Alex could handle that, but after an intimate dinner followed by a decidedly unromantic e-mail, he’s left wondering about the future of his employment as well as his relationship with the debonair older man.
Law can’t wait to see his clerk again. But Alex is cold and distant in the light of day, and Law doesn’t understand. The party looms in the background, but Law’s excitement is turning to dread. On top of that, someone is sabotaging them, trying to get Alex fired and drive Law off the bench. If there’s any chance for a happy holiday for Alex and Law, they’ll have to find out who.
This is a sweet, slightly mysterious, Christmas novella by Jayce Ellis. Alex is a court clerk and Judge Law is his boss. They are both head over heels for each other and neither realizes.
Through hijinks there’s drama but it doesn’t linger. This is short and fast paced. There’s love and joy and Merry times for Alex and Law.
In this short story there was actually quite a bit of secondary characters. Some smitten, some ruthless, some perfectly lovely. Either way they all play an integral part in this tale.
Even though it was short it was special and sweet and just what I was in the mood for. If you’re up for a quickie with all the fixins’ look no further.
