I keep coming back to this author because she does great relationships. Especially married couples relationships.

This novella is a sweet take off of the O.Henry classic The Gift of the Magi. Eric and Nia are young marrieds who aren't exactly rich. He is a resident at a local hospital, she is working two jobs so they can pay off their student loans and keep debt low. They are also stupid in love with each other, with each not quite believing their luck having landed their soul-mate. At Christmas,

I want to start by saying WOW this book is great. After chapter two I thought if the book ended here it would be a great five star short story. Of course I am thankful for more story, more fun, and more table rocking hot scenes from Ms. Matthews.

The main thing that set this story apart from others is the H/h are already married. Not only are Nia and Eric married but they are married with school loans to pay, overtime to work, and Christmas coming right around the corner.

Another great read from Lena Matthews!

Description: While poor newlyweds, Nia and Eric spend their first Christmas together in the cold city where he’s doing his residency, they heat up the winter nights with love and passion.

The Good: Ms. Matthews does a wonderful job of making married sex very hot. She sets up great situations for the couple, and the love scenes are very well-executed. Nia is lovely and sweet and easy to root for. I was also a big fan of Eric’s best work friend, Dominic, and Lena’s best work friend, Julia. Can’t wa
eric can't believe that his wife, nia, loves him, because he's dragged her across the country, he has little to no money while he completes his residency and nia has to work a couple of jobs just to keep them afloat. as a result, eric isn't happy with the christmas preparations that nia is making. nia loves eric and would do anything for him, including living in their sometimes warm and sometimes freezing apartment with little to no complaints. when she can't understand why eric won't s

Nia and Eric Athers are young and in love. Thanks to Eric’s student loan debt, they live paycheck to paycheck but as long as they have each other nothing else matters. Nia works two jobs to help make ends meet and saves for everything. This year Nia has saved enough to buy Eric a flat screen TV for Christmas. However, Eric’s sentimentality may not only prevent Nia from buying his special gift, but ruin Christmas for both of them.

Priceless is Lena Matthews’ adaptation of The Gift of the Magi and

This story is a decent depiction of a working marriage between two active participants. Eric and Nia demonstrate their love and devotion to each other through acts of kindness, selflessness, and intimacy - even when misunderstandings and hurt feelings occurred. I enjoyed this story. Good job Ms. Lena!
I am big fan of Ms. Lena Matthews' romances and this one is no exception! Once again she has created lead characters, Eric and Nia, you will love and the same goes for the two secondary characters, Julia and Dominic, who are surely going to get their own story!
The story itself was really good, along with the great characters both H/H and supporting, there was a lot of snappy dialogue. I would have enjoyed it more without all the public places they have sex.

A modern, rather sexy retelling of "The Gift of the Magi". Cute. I'll probably read it again around the holidays.

Lena Matthews spends her days dreaming about handsome heroes and her nights with her own personal hero. Married to her college sweetheart, she is the proud mother of two children, three evil dogs, and a mess of ants that she can't seem to get rid of.

When not writing she can be found reading, watching movies, lifting up the cushions on the couch to look for batteries for the remote control and plot
