Holy mistletoe…this was one crazy, danger filled, wildly romantic holiday read!

When Haley arrives in Pointe Hope to hide out, the last thing she wanted was to land on the local sheriff’s radar. But she’s more than on Spencer’s radar, she immediately captures not only his desire but his suspicions. Haley Quick is running and fortunately, she’s run right into Spencer Lane’s life.


Haley isn’t a kick tail heroine. Her strength comes from a past that is determined to catch up to her. As her

2.5 Shockingly Disappointed Stars

I'm a big Cynthia Eden fan, but getting through this book was kinda hard, it's been a while since I've read any of her books, which happily sit in my kindle, but this felt like a amalgamation of key tropes from previous books - something that I usually wouldn't mind, but this time around, the characters and the dialogue made me feel it painfully. There was a lack of energy when it came to the main characters' interactions, and it just generally felt meh.
I was determined to read a holiday themed story this year before Christmas. I decided to pick up one of Cynthia Eden’s books because I have always enjoyed her work! This one was just ok for me. I think I prefer her paranormal stories over contemporary ones. This one wasn’t terrible, but it was just ok for me. If I’m being honest, I would say that I will forget the details of this book within a month.
Even as far as the main couple went, I just wasn’t feeling their connection much at all. I also

This was a fabulous story with a relationship that developed fast and boy did I enjoy the dialogue. Spence might be a small town sheriff but you underestimate him at your peril ! This story starts a it meant to go on with Elves, snow ( well almost) and all the warm feels that made me think of Christmas. I mentioned Spence because he truly shone for me but Haley was no slouch when it came to snagging her man !

Spoilers ahead

Well I actually saw this book at the back of another book and didn't even realize it was part of a series smh but either way I don't think today was my day to read this because it didn't really work for me and I'm hard pressed to figure out why. This author has a basic formula but sometimes it just doesn't quite hit the mark

H has been celibate a while u think(3 books in one day makes details harder to recall lol)
h has been on the run from her ex for 6 months he makes a reappearance

Cynthia Eden takes us to Point Hope, Alabama for her seasonal offering this year, with a side order of the Wilde Securities team as back up, when Sheriff Spencer Lane, meets, saves from a pack of Elves on bicycles and then falls in love with Haley Quick. He knows from the start that this is a woman in trouble, and as the book progresses, he realises just how much danger she is in.

Those who follow me know how much I love holiday stories. They are just the best! It's even better when it's written by an author I love. It's the best holiday treat I could ask for!

There is something about a story by Cynthia Eden that always makes me happy. She writes this wonderful hot sexy hero's that you want for yourself. Very alpha but also they want their women to be strong and stand on their own two feet.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
One Hot Holiday by Cynthia Eden is book 6 in the Wilde Ways Series. This is the story of Haley Quick and Spencer Lane. I have read the previous books (and Loved them!) but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Haley has left the city for a small town on the map called Point Hope, Alabama. Haley ex is out to really get her so she is trying to lay low and thinks this is a great place. Then she finds that Spencer Lane is the person she will be renting from which puts the ...more

Haley is on the run from her ex and lands in a small town in Alabama. She meets the sheriff, ex Seal, Spencer. Spencer knows Haley is scared but he needs to get her to trust him before she will tell him what or who she is afraid of. Spencer will do anything to protect Haley when danger follows her to town.

This is a sexy sweet romance with suspense thrown in. I was rooting for Spencer and Haley to have a happy ending. Haley’s ex was a creep and a manipulator, and his true colors eventually

Another great, suspense filled story! So enjoyed the story between Spencer and Haley. Haley is running and Spencer is immediately drawn to her. Spencer is a great alpha hero. Loved the appearance of some of the Wilde Security folks as well as the suggested reference to another character who gets his book soon! Great dialogue between characters as usual.

For a long time now, every Cynthia Eden book is my last one, or so I tell myself. Nostalgia for the potential of her older books has me coming back but it looks like it's not going to be enough soon.

I'm sorry but let's be real - writing the same basic story time and again will eventually get too much even for the most resilient fan when it is as badly crafted as this one was. Eden has a trusted formula - the hot, often rich and always tortured hero meets a beautiful, hunted by her secrets woman

One Hot Holiday was packed full of drama and action and kept me on my toes with every page. I absolutely could not put it down!!!

Spencer can instantly sense that something is off with Haley and makes it his mission to protect her and make her feel safe.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Cynthia Eden offers another steamy romance that includes a page-turning intrigue with malicious villains.

Haley Quick is running for her life from an abusive ex-boyfriend. She stops in Point Hope, Alabama, a small Southern town, where she hopes to hide for awhile. There she meets Sheriff Spencer Lane, a former SEAL. They have an instant attraction to each other even though Haley wants to keep a low profile,

One Hot Holiday is a suspenseful sexy read by Cynthia Eden just in time for the holiday season. No time like the present to make a better choice in life. Hiding out in a small Southern town sounds perfect to me and by the end of this book it does Haley Quick too.

A bad guy chasing after a woman alone in the world, this story could have had a much different ending. However, you can count on this author to have just the right good guy waiting in the wings. With a bit of small town quirkiness, Haley

Safe except for her attraction to the sheriff who is her new landlord, Spencer Lane.

I think you (CE) and me it’s time we part ways! It was fun while it lasted! Loved your books because you wrote strong heroines and good heroes but lately you’ve let me down. This will be my last book from you.

I hate heroines who loses their train of thoughts because the hero is hot. I hate tstl heroines. I hate how many authors write OWs. No woman would talk about how a man would “fuck, hot and dirty” without even knowing if he really does to another woman after meeting her literally 5 minutes

Haley is on the run from an ex and runs to the small town of Point Hope. There, Sheriff Spencer Lane's first sight of her he has to save her from elves on bicycles. Their romance develops quickly and dialogue between the two is awesome. It was a great Christmas read and I love the town of Point Hope.

I loved this book! A suspense filled storyline with a protective Alpha hero and a cop-fearing heroine who is just looking for some anonymity. The instant and steamy hot sexual attraction between small town cop Spencer and petite and feisty Haley starts on page one and gets even steamier as the danger that Haley ran from follows her to Point Hope, Alabama. I loved this fast paced insanely sexy suspense filled story just as much as the colorful characters and I’m definitely going to be reading ...more

I loved this book. Spencer sure fell quickly for Haley. But what is she hiding? He’s so protective and definitely possessive, it’s very hot. Just how powerful is her ex? Loved staying on edge. But will she leave once she’s safe? He really loves his town, would he give up everything for her? Will she choose to stay with him? Loved being emotionally connected with the characters. There’s an awesome happy ever after. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book.

Loved it!!

Absolutely loved this book and I always look forward to the next Cynthia Eden because I know I won't be disappointed. She has never let me down and this was no different. I love the Wilde series and glad they were included. The suspense and romance aspect are on point. Loved that the h was both vulnerable and strong while the H was the perfect alpha. You could literally feel the connection.
