Strong. Sensible. Dependable. That was Evie Dunn's type. Certainly not young, fearless, gorgeous firefighter Scott Jones. She knew the wisest course was to keep her distance, but she couldn't resist the allure of a holiday fling. Now the widowed single mom found herself with an unexpected post-Christmas gift—she was having Scott's baby!Scott came to Crystal Point to see hi ...more

Marriage Under the Mistletoe (Harlequin Special Edition)

MARRIAGE UNDER THE MISTLETOE is by author Helen Lacey for the Harlequin Special Editions, releasing November 2012.

Evie Dunn was a widow with a young son. She was the strong, sensible type everyone went to for advice. Then she meets her best friend and sister in law's younger brother.

Younger being the operative word here! He was younger than her. But she couldn't deny Scott Jones was hot and gorgeous and did something to her heart every time

Marriage Under the Mistletoe (Harlequin Special Edition) by Helen Lacey

In the second book in the series we watch Evie and Scott fall in love. Readers will remember Evie Dunn “Noah’s sister” and Scott Jones “Callie’s brother” who we first met in the book Made for Marriage.

Evie Dunn runs a B and B in the coastal town of Crystal Point. Ten years ago she lost her husband Gordon in an accident during a storm. Now Evie’s focus is on raising her son Trevor and running the Inn. She has loving family an
Good book. I liked both Evie and Scott. Evie has led a pretty quiet life since her husband's death ten years ago. She doesn't date, just runs her B & B and takes care of her son. She is the one everyone goes to for help. When she met her new sister-in-law's younger brother she didn't expect to be attracted to him. She felt it was terribly inappropriate, given his status as a member of the family and the fact that he is nine years younger than she is. He is also a firefighter like her late hu ...more
I can honestly say that the thought of a older woman getting romantically involved with a younger man has never really interested me on any level as it seems more than a little unbalanced.

However I am never one to judge true love , not can we decided whom we fall in love with,and I never ever judge a book by it's cover or the back blurb.

Also knowing that Helen Lacey is a superb author I had no problem getting lost and entranced by this fabulous story of love and romance at it's best.

I loved this book! Scott Jones is so hot he made my toes curl. This crystal point series is just getting better and better. I'd been looking forward to seeing who single mother Evie ended up with and had no idea it would a spunky (younger than her) fireman from L.A. The sexual tension is this story is awesome, and not only that, the love between them is so heartfelt. I ached when they were apart, especially for poor Scott who was just crazy about Evie. This book has scorched its way into my top ...more

A copy of this book was provided to me by Kat at Book Thingo for an honest review at their website (

“Marriage Under The Mistletoe” is the second book in Helen Lacey’s Crystal Point series for the Harlequin Special Edition line, and although this was a new author and series for me, I had no issues following the story of Evie and Scott without having read the previous book. Evie Dunn is the sensible sister of the Preston family, the one who others depend upon even as she shoulde
Very wonderfully written. Sweet and intense at the same time. Not overly sweet as some seem to be, just Realistic.

The only thing that got on nerves was something that seems to be a pattern. Both in the first book and in this one, the heroines were toooo stubborn and constantly denying their feelings and any attachment to the heroes near the middle and the end. And her complaints and decisions about staying alone were getting on my nerves. Soo stubborn that by the end, I couldn’t even remember t

This was sort of slow for me. It wasn't that I didn't enjoy it, but it felt like it just missed something.

About Helen
