This was a great story but only left me wanting more. It was an extremely short novella that ended abruptly and did not have an epilogue.

Robin and Ian are both ex-cons or thieves to be exact. They grew up together working in the business with Robin’s dad and uncle. They became best friends and eventually lovers. Ian was Robin’s only true love until he made a mistake that threw her dad in jail two years before. That mistake not only landed her dad in jail but also cost them their lifelong frien

Short, sexy with a little bit of suspense! Ian and Robin are reunited after a misunderstanding that separated the two lovers. Christmas finds the two thieves reluctantly working together again. Loved the sexual tension and play between these two! Would have like a little more story but overall a great little Christmas romance! Look forward to reading more books by Jill James!

It was a nice short story of a sort of romance, off again, on again.It was about not trusting or trusting. It seemed more like a prelude to a bigger story.I enjoyed it but felt like I was left hanging for more. It was the 6th book in Christmas On Main Street Set.
