Caitlin McIntyre’s heart stops when her best friend drops to one knee and proposes. Kyle Lockhart never once hinted over the years that he has any idea she’s in love with him. Not wanting to jeopardize their friendship, she’s never let it slip. Good thing, too, since it turns out he’s only practicing—he’s about to propose to someone else.
A business merger might not be the most romantic reason to propose to a woman he barely knows, but Kyle’s determined to win the respect of the dying father who’s never seen him as quite good enough. Kyle’s always depended on Caitlin’s friendship, while trying to ignore the physical response she arouses. So he turns to her when it comes time to craft his proposal, not realizing his decision will affect their relationship, forever.
This Christmas, Kyle and Caitlin get one last chance to admit their feelings for each other, and find a mutual happily ever after, before he commits his life to another woman and Caitlin leaves town and him…for good.
Ask Her at Christmas is a sweet short novella perfect for a quick holiday read.
What would you do if the man you love is your best friend, and he is asking for your help to propose to another woman? Well this is Caitlin’s dilemma. She has always done everything to hide her feelings from him not trying to jeopardize her friendship, but now she may just loose him to someone else.
Kyle has always been looking for his father’s approval. Now he thinks he can get that by marrying a woman to help their companies merge. But he is a geek and knows nothing about how to propose, although, his best friend Caitlin is the perfect person to help him craft the perfect proposal.
When I read this story a saying came to mind, it goes something like this, “When you really love someone you only want their happiness, even if it’s not with you.” I think this is the way that Caitlin loves Kyle and it’s very beautiful the way that she will try to help him, even if her heart is breaking on the way. You have to read it to find out how Kyle and Caitlin get their HEA, but I can promise it’s a very interesting road for them.
If you are looking for a short and sweet holiday romance you will find this story to be very fulfilling.
