Book Blurb

When Greyson Hayes envisions the perfect first Christmas with Mica Cruz he sees twisted sheets, a bottle of wine and a roaring fire. What he doesn't see is a holiday spent with the uproarious Cruz family. Grey hasn't taken part in a family Christmas since the death of his parents. Despite his misgivings, he can't seem to form the word no when it comes to Mica.

Mica knows that Grey's not a grinch. Hell, the man shares so much Christmas cheer during the holidays that he leaves no time to experience any for himself. Not this year. Mica plans to make a few changes, starting with a few wicked and whimsical gifts. He enlists the help of his co-workers at Firehouse Six. They band together and strive to provide Grey with the same joy he gives to everyone else--with five a.m. tree hunts, strategically placed mistletoe and Mica playing Santa's not-so-little helper.

But while Mica is busy being nice, Grey has plenty of time to be naughty…

Book Review

Ahhhhhh, my firemen are back. What a yummy way to welcome the new year. I so enjoyed Grey and Mica when I first met them in 'Grey's Hidden Fire', so a chance to spend more time with them could not be passed up. Plus, in 'Fire and Mistletoe' I got to watch Grey interacting with Mica's family, and since Grey is an only child and both parents are deceased, it was quite the entertainment for me. Thanks for that, Draven!

Mica is determined that Grey is going to spend Christmas with him. It's not that Grey doesn't want to, it's just as a single man he always covered extra holiday shifts for the family men and he feels guilty for not doing it this year. With all of the extra holiday charities volunteering that Grey does it means they are also counting on him, although Mica has promised to help with that.

Grey is wary of meeting Mica's large family as he never had that type of upbringing and he's nervous. It doesn't help Grey's insecurities either that this will be the first time he's out in public as a gay man, and Grey doesn't handle change very well at all.

What a lovely holiday sequel for Grey and Mica. They are still insanely hot for each other and very much in love. I loved it that Grey got to add new memories instead of feeling like he was giving up the ones he has from his childhood and before his parents died. Thank you, Draven, for another good story from the firehouse. Please tell me you'll be writing one about Michael and Simon?
