“Loosely linked by the Christmas season, these racy novellas from three of Brava’s more popular authors get the holidays off to a steamy start.

"Emma Lafferty agrees to house sit and pet sit for an eccentric billionaire over the holidays, knowing the pay and references it would generate would be a hefty boost to her new pet sitting business. When she arrives at his country home in the middle of an ice storm, the last thing she expects to find is the gorgeous great-grandson of the CEO, and although she doesn’t quite believe the story he’s telling about why he’s there, she finds his charm irresistible.
Trevor Hamilton knew his great-uncle was going out of the country for two weeks and was certain he could pay off whoever had been hired to pet sit so he could search the mansion for clues to a family secret – a secret that has eaten at him for several years. It immediately becomes clear that Emma isn’t budging. It isn’t long before Trevor is totally captivated by Emma and he finds himself questioning the importance of the supposed family secret in comparison to his desire to build a relationship with Emma.
Emma and Trevor are absolutely charming together, despite a slightly rocky start. The sparks fly immediately, although they’re a little hesitant to trust each other. Trevor’s questions and doubts about his place in his family is heartening, as is Emma’s gentle persuasion for him to do whatever is necessary to ease his mind and allow him to find the peace he has desperately wanted for several years."
“Emma Lafferty is doing what she’s always wanted to: be a pet sitter. Hired by billionaire Lionel Hamilton to watch his animals over the holiday season, Emma arrives at his isolated estate to discover a man in residence, Lionel’s nephew, Trevor Hamilton. He refuses to leave, and Emma feels obligated to do her job, but it’s all taken out of their hands when a snowstorm leaves them stranded. Together. With a serious case of attraction for each other. What Emma doesn’t know is that Trevor is after something and will do anything to get it.
An unlikely couple clashes amidst a furious snowstorm with a menagerie of pets. Emma doesn’t want to get involved with Trevor, but he is terribly hard to resist. She doesn’t understand why he seems bent on getting rid of her, or why he’s there. Trevor has made a life of his own outside the family empire, but there is something left over from childhood he wants, and nothing, not even Emma, will get in his way. Yet, there is desire and more between Emma and him. With little to do while stranded, will they figure out a way to while away the time?
Donna Kauffman again delivers a scorching read that is charming and sexy with Unleashed.”
