This was such a sweet book. I enjoyed the the small town feel with the added bonus of the Christmas holidays making Under The Mistletoe an even more enjoyable read. I have never read a book from this author that I didn't enjoy.

Sweet and sexy with a huge helping of Christmas! Just a touch of angst and a beautiful happily-ever-after!

Spencer is not a relationship guy. But this is not because he is against one. Spencer just hasn't found a woman he can honestly see himself spending the rest of his

This book tells the story of Spencer and Georgie, who become colleagues when she moves to Last Stand to start afresh after the break up of her relationship with her ex co-worker Cole, because of his refusal to commit even after 3 years dating. Because of this, when she meets Spencer under the Mistletoe and sparks fly, she remains resolutely determined to never date a colleague again, and makes sure Spencer has no illusions in that regard.

What I really like about the two main characters is the

We head back to Last Stand, TX again in Under the Mistletoe and what a wonderful trip back it was indeed. You might be familiar with the McBride family in Last Stand, they are doctors, paramedic, and yes some work with horses. In this book we get to know up close and personal Spencer who works as a firefighter/paramedic and Georgie Durant a newly arrived paramedic in town. They met under the mistletoe but things don't happen like Spencer would like them too right away in spite of nature's ...more

Wounded after giving her heart to a man who wouldn’t commit, paramedic Georgie Durant has come to Last Stand, Texas, for a fresh start. Though tempted by the handsome Spencer, she’s too leery of his easy charm

UNDER THE MISTLETOE is the third story in the Heart of Texas series which is part of the Last Stand, Texas group of series. I love connected series, they give me a wider sense of community plus I enjoy seeing characters from other series just show up now and then – so, yeah, I am a huge Last Stand, Texas fan.

This time around we get Spencer McBride’s story with Georgie Durant, a newcomer to town as well as a co-worker. Spencer is one of the good guys, he’s loved within
Mistletoe does mean you have to kiss but it doesn’t mean you have to actually fall in love….

Welcome back to Last Stand, Texas, and the wonderful created by the authors of Tule Publishing. This book is all about Spencer McBride who just happens to be a firefighter and a paramedic in addition to being drop dead gorgeous.

Spencer and Georgie’s love story in Under the Mistletoe by Eve Gaddy, book three in her Heart of Texas series, was a wonderful, sexy, emotional and enjoyable tale. Firefighter and paramedic Spencer McBride enjoys being a bachelor and not getting serious about anyone. That is until he physically runs into newcomer Georgie, under the mistletoe; not once, not twice, but five times. Paramedic Georgie Durant moved to Last Stand, Texas for a fresh start after the man she gave her heart to, and worked ...more
Eve Gaddy is one of my ‘go to’ authors whenever I want a heartwarming romance with great characters, plenty of twists and a HEA – and this is an excellent example of just such a read.

They’d never met, but their eyes met across a festive party and then they literally bumped into each other not once or twice but five times under the mistletoe. Initially paramedic Georgie Durant refuses to let firefighter and paramedic Spencer McBride kiss her – until that fifth ocassion. That’s when they both knew

Spencer met Georgie at a Christmas party that had tons of mistletoe everywhere. Every time they ran
into each other she was standing under a piece of Mistletoe and didn't even know it. Spencer kept pointing it out and she said the kiss would never happen. After the fifth time of being caught under the mistletoe she agreed to the kiss. And Wow what a kiss it was. Neither one expected that

While I like all of this series, Under the Mistletoe by Eve Gaddy may be my favorite of her Heart of Texas Series. It is book three in the series but has such wonderful characters in Spencer and Georgie. I enjoyed the Christmas setting and the way that these two meet but also visiting Last Stand, my favorite fictional Texas town.

Georgie has recently moved to the area so seeing the town through her eyes was enlightening as well as entertaining. Seeing the two of them develop their relationship

The characters are fantastic with a great story line. Georgie and Spencer are both paramedics working at Last Stand Fire Department. Georgie is coming off a broken relationship did not date co-workers. Spencer is not a relationship person but he has not found a woman that he can settle down. They are working together for the annual Christmas children’s Toy gala and they get to know each other. Georgie comes to know what a fantastic person Spencer is. I loved both Georgie and Spencer’s character, ...more

I love just about anything written by Eve Gaddy, she’s got a way about telling a story & tugging on all the emotions while doing it. In Under the Mistletoe she has us rooting for firefighter/paramedic Spencer a popular bachelor trying to win a date with a beautiful woman he met under the mistletoe who also happens to work with him. Georgie is gun shy after a workplace romance ended & she’s not sure she wants to go through that again. It was sweet watching Spencer woo her & wear her ...more

He is a stranger and her new co-worker. While they share an instant attraction Georgie does not date co-workers - been there, done that, been burned. When they work together on the annual toy drive she realizes that Spencer really is the all around good guy. What she thought might be an act is actually the kind of man ...more

A sweet read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Spencer is a guy that is almost too good to be true. Or at least that's what Georgie is thinking. It has a small town theme where he's loved by all, so dang freely helpful to others and loves the Christmas season. Spencer has never met anyone who made him want to give up the single status until he sees Georgie under the mistletoe. I laughed out loud at his persistence with it and him trying to get her to kiss him. Burned once Georgie is weary of ...more

This is a book that is enjoyable any time of year. For Spencer, it was almost at love at first sight. For Georgie, although she was attracted to Spencer, she refuses to date a co-worker. Their first kiss under the mistletoe was sizzling. Georgie can't believe how sweet Spencer is. As they co-host a toy drive and work together, Georgie starts to believe that Spencer is an incredible guy. I received a free copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntarily given review. I love ...more

This is such a sweet and romantic book. It takes place in a small town. This book is about Georgie and Spencer. The chemistry between these two is hot. They both try to resist what they feel because neither of them is looking for a relationship. Georgie has a rule that she will not date co-workers. They are thrown together to do the annual toy drive. Spencer does everything in his power to try and win her over. There is just something about Georgie that pulls him to her. Will he be able to ...more

A lovely holiday story about Spencer and Georgie. Working together they of course are friends but Spence would like the opportunity to ask Georgie out. Georgie already had a workplace romance that ended poorly so is afraid to enter into another one. Spencer doesn't give up easily and try all he can to get her to notice him. Of course with help from the people in Last Stand step up to help it along. Ms. Gaddy writes such a lovely story and leaves you with a wonderful sigh. Last Stand Texas series ...more

The story of Spencer and Georgie.
He falls for her the first time he sees her, and now he just has to convince her to give him a chance.
She is set against dating anyone she works with after being hurt before, but the more time they spend together the more she is thinking of giving Spencer a chance.

Great christmas read

Under the Mistletoe by Eve Gaddy is book number three in the Heart of Texas series. This isSpencer McBride andGeorgieDurant's story.

Georgie and Spencer were wonderful and fun characters. Spencer stole my heart. He was a kind and thoughtful guy. Georgie needs to learn to trust again if she wants to have a chance at finding happiness. Spencer and Georgie will never look at mistletoe the same again.

Eve Gaddy takes us back to Last Stand, Texas with Under the Mistletoe, the third book in her Heart of Texas series. I very much enjoyed the latest McBride brother's romance. Spencer and Georgie are a wonderful match I couldn't help but want to see together. Under the Mistletoe is a wonderfully sweet holiday romance.

This is book #3 of Heart of Texas series, I was given an advanced copy in return for my review.
Loved the characters, the Christmas settings and the romance of Georgie and Spencer. However I wanted Georgie to quit expecting Spencer to act just like her ex, it made me fret they would never find happiness.
I have enjoyed other books by Eve Gaddy and will be watching for her next one.

Sometimes you just can’t outrun love. Love of family or love of friends.
Georgie moves to a new town to avoid the awkwardness of a bad breakup. Spencer wants to get to know her better. Unfortunately, Georgie puts up a big wall as she won’t date a coworker again. But slowly and surely, Spencer melts that big wall. But it’s how he does it that’s so sweet. Nothing like a little romance to melt a girl’s heart!

Such a sweet love at first sight type romance. It was a little on the mushy gushy side but perfect for a Christmas novel. I enjoyed the characters and hope to hear more in future books about where they are now.
