With only a few days before Christmas, single parents Jason and Leah both happen to grab the last “Little Family Dollhouse” off the shelf at the very same time. Neither is willing to cede the hard to find item to the other, so they come up with a solution: they will split the cost of this one and spend the rest of the day together finding a second one.
Their mission has them traipsing to every toy store in the area, from the city to the suburbs, to find the must-have toy of the season. They already had a mutual attraction at first sight, and now spending time together, they each learn what lengths they will go to for their daughters.
When their efforts are fruitless, the hunt will extend to Christmas Eve. As the time ticks away, the chances of them completing their search is nil, but Jason has an idea that will give Leah a Christmas that is memorable for both her and her daughter in more ways than one.
Alexander (Reluctant Prince) paints a reliable, feel-good romance for the season that hits all the right notes, which is exactly what readers will seek for the holidays.
