The Vera's Christmas Elf collection by Sarah Makela includes two short books, Her Christmas Elf and Vera's Christmas Wish, both featuring the same characters. I don't consider either to be separate stories, but more like parts one and two of the same storyli

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Vera is on holiday in Finland but it's not off to a great start.

He is one of Santa's elves and so he has to help her have a great Christmas :) In book 2, Vera is back to look for Pekka for the next Christmas but she is having trouble.

Vera's Christmas Elf is a saucy quick read. I really liked Vera and the build up of the scenes. Vera definitely got her Christmas presents. I did think that the first story ended a little abruptly. However story two is in this bundle ready to go. As much as I liked the story and Vera, I just couldn't like Pekka. .It is the main reason that I give this a 3.5 star rating. That didn't stop me from reading this bundle.

Short and sassy, this two part tale of how Vera found herself believing in Santa Claus all over again, will have you a bit hot and bothered on a cold winters night. Perfect "bedtime" read, this tale will have you believing too!
My only dislike would be that I hoped it would go on for much longer. Vera and Pekka would definitely be a couple I could read so much more of!

This is a sweet. Fun. Light. Short box set.
The plot is set over 2 Christmas eves. 1 per book.
The story is fast paced and full of heat. The back story gives some depth to the characters. And the secondary character in book 2 brings some interesting folklore into the mix.
I enjoyed the book and would like to read more about the continuing story of these characters.

Believing in Christmas again
Vera goes alone on the vacation that her and her Ex were supposed to go on together. Traveling alone to Finland around Christmas wasn’t what she imagined her holiday to be. After talking a walk and getting lost, Pekka “the Elf” finds and saves her. But to warm her up they got to get close and personal. Best vacation ever!
The following year, Vera decides to try her luck again, wanting to find Pekka again. But with no way of contacting him, it might be a lost cause. Th

This is a set of two stories about a woman who goes to Finland by herself after her fiance calls off the wedding and discovers a magical world and that Santa and his elves are very real.

It is a light-hearted story and a fun Christmas read. Both stories are short and quick to read. The first finds her in danger and rescued by an elf that works for Santa as a herder. The second book finds them reconnecting a year later. In both books, Vera and Pekka pursue their attraction very quickly.

A bad breakup has Vera taking a vacation in Lapland of all places, a vacation she quickly regrets when she gets lost in the woods and almost run over by a herd of reindeer, until she is rescued by a very hot stranger. Pekka and Vera have wild chemistry and he turns out to be an Elf. In book two Vera returns hoping to run into Pekka again but ends up needing saving again from an evil spirit. Sexy short with some very interesting characters, humor and Christmas cheer.

VERA'S CHRISTMAS ELF

This was both an interesting and a bit of a weird read for me. I loved the concept of this story and the storyline, but I did find it moved a little fast in some areas. The characters were likable, warm and sweet, but because the stories were so short I don't think we had enough information on them to get a really good handle on Pekka and Vera. It felt a bit choppy at times. So overall the story was enjoyable but I w

Great Christmas story with enjoyable characters that has a chemistry to die for. Alone on a vacation her ex boyfriend wanted and meets Pekka the elf and sparks fly. A great book to take you away from everyday life and back to Christmas time
