For small-town cop and single dad Hawk Savage, Christmas tends to be more hassle and worry than mistletoe and magic. His daughter, Heather, is ten going on teenager, while his son, Henry Lee, has decided he needs a mommy, ASAP. HL’s constant matchmaking ...more
The blurb for this book caught by eye and honestly who can resist a story about a little boy who wants a Mom for Christmas, not me and I did enjoy Wanted: A Mom for Christmas even though it was a bit too easy considering all the circumstances surrounding this couple and the hero’s two children.
Seven years ago Hawk Savage’s life was turned upside down when his wife died leaving him the single parent to a 3 year old daughter and an infant son. He managed with help of family and friends, b ...more

This is a Christmas story with lots of spirit and a sweet romance. It's about family and second chances.
It reminded me of a Hallmark Christmas movie.

WOW, just WOW!!!
I LOVED this book! I could go on, and on, telling you why I loved this book. I loved the way the author created the characters in the book. I love the way she built up family dynamics, even through the loss of a spouse/parent. I love the way the author created ...more
Lee Kilraine is a new author to me. Recently I have found myself gravitating to stories of single dads and when I saw the premise for this story I jumped at the chance to read.
Although not a particularly long story and part of a series, (I didn’t know that when I requested) I had no difficulty reading Wanted: Mom for Christmas.
Hawk Savage is a single dad of two, daughter Heather who is 10 and son Henry Lee (call m ...more
**I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you**
This review is going to be short as I am going to try to sum my thoughts up as briefly and concisely as possible.
This book was written for those, like myself, who are Christmas fanatics and love everything about the holiday season (well I may have a slight issue with Christmas music but that aside, love everything e ...more

Second chance at love for an Olympic medalist and a small town cop that were once high school sweethearts – will they find a HEA – probably ;)
Nora Joy had a no good very bad day that continued downhill with one hit after another until she felt she had hit rock bottom – and then – a job in her old hometown appeared as if by magic. She grabbed the job with both hands and headed to Climax, North Carolina to become rent-a-mom to the childre ...more
Did I request this because the hero's name is Hawk Savage and it reminds me of my two favourite KA characters Hawk Delgado and Indy Savage? Yep.
Anyway, this is my first Lee Kilraine book, and it's a short and fast read. While I think the writing could be a little stronger, I really like Nora and the Savages, especially little Henry Lee Savage who is super adorable and a show-stealer. Hawk and Nora were high school lovers until Nora moved aw ...more
This is actually my very first read from this author and I AM NOT DISAPPOINTED!!! I'm actually questioning myself why I missed this. Because this is exactly what I needed after being burnt out reading dark books. Yep! A light but definitely sweet romance is what this book is.
You'll be sure to enjoy this book albeit a quick read because, boy, do you wish for it to be long. Or better yet a follow up book from this couple/family. A single dad raising his kids that is growing up quite fast thrown in ...more
I can't say I didn't like it. But I also can't say I loved it. I don't really know how I feel about it. It's kind of one of those books where you're just like "yeah, I read it" and that's it.
I love single dads so I think that's why I really stuck with it. But it was just okay... I don't have an overwhelming need to tell people "OMG YOU HAVE TO READ IT," you know? ...more
This is a sweet, sweet story. No worries, there are plenty of people that you can boo, but this family will warm your heart. I am so happy I picked up this book and it will put you into an early Christmas spirit, too!

I enjoy second chance romances and this was a great one! I loved that Hawk and Nora were each other's "firsts"! Due to threats, Nora could not contact Hawk again, and later heard how he became a manwhore so she left him in the past. Fast forward to years down the road, they meet again.
It was great that Nora became a Rent-a-mom, and went to the client's house only to find her old love, Hawk (she knew him as Jackson) and his two children. There is a b ...more
Every year, despite my mostly grinchy attitude, I pick up a handful of Christmas books trying to find what seems to be a needle in a haystack. Unfortunately, Wanted: A Mom for Christmas by Lee Kilraine only served up more hay. The novel, in and of itself was ok, just WAY too sweet for my tastes (if a Hallmark movie and aspartame had a baby…). Maybe it’s because this is my first read by Ms. Kilraine. Maybe it’s because I unwittingly jumped into this series at book #5.5, and had no prior connectio...more
Nora is at loose ends and thanks to a little holiday magic she finds herself on Hawk’s doorstop just when he needs her. While she’s definitely not Mary Poppins she does have a HUGE heart and finds herself quickly drawn ...more

Just when he's about to send her packing, work circumstances change and he's all but begging her to stay. This is the story of Hawk and Nora's romance.
My first read of Kilraine's, I was very excited about this book, but there were a couple of parts that did ...more
This is the first I've read by this author.... I'm glad I took a chance, as this author will be added to my never ending TBR list lol!!
I loved reading this beautiful, short, warm and a little OTT but who cares?? I absolutely adore Christmas stories & this one certainly hits the spot!

Wow, poor Nora. She loses her boyfriend; her best friend and volleyball partner; her mother as her manager; all her savings and gains $20,000 in debt all in one day! However her luck changes when she receives a job offer in her hometown of Climax, North Carolina. Not with her parents that she knows anything about parenting but the Rent-a-Mom offer is the only job she can find; the big surprise is that she finds herself working for her first love, now a widower with two childre ...more
