Joy Winters lives for Christmas. Maybe because as a child growing up in foster care, she never experienced the true meaning of the season. That’s why the charity she began with her best friend to help make under privileged kids’ Christmas wishes come true is so near and dear to her heart.

But this year, those wishes may be derailed wh

Santa’s Special Delivery is Sierra Hill’s contribution to the Sleeping with the Scrooge series, and it’s a fun short story. In truth, this one was more of a three-point-five-star rating rather than the three-star rating I have given it, but things were fixed a bit too easily for me to round this one up.

Although things were fixed a bit too easily for me, I did enjoy the story. It pulled me in from the start and I happily devoured it in under an hour. It’s a sweet story with festive cheer, one sur

What a wonderful Christmas novella that made me cry and laugh. Sierra writes fantastic puns and sexual innuendos that make you giggle like a school girl. Highly recommend.

Joy lives for Christmas, while Gabriel does not, in fact, he's the hot Scrooge of the season. These two meet when some packages she was looking for, ended up at Gabriel's house, and since it was a hundred boxes, the company who delivered them to him, well, they wouldn't take it back. They end up spending time on a night out, and the chemistry they were sportin', it just wouldn't be denied. Gabriel is finding "Joy" finally, until a family emergency has him taking steps back, and I was just droppi ...more

Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:

I could read Santa's Special Delivery again and again and never tire of it. This short story was sexy fun with two great characters and a plot that had me feeling the Christmas spirit!

With this story I felt happy and like I needed a glass of eggnog, my favorite warm pjs and my throw as I devoured every word. I fell hard for the way this story was written and how it made me feel. Very addicting.

What started out as a way of ensuring that other children didn’t feel the way Joy did as a child takes a turn when the parcels were delivered to the wrong address. When she heads to the house where they were delivered she didn’t expect to run into Mr. Grinch himself.

Gabriel has a lot on his plate so the last thing he needs is to be bombarded with parcels that don’t belong to him. When the owner of the parcels shows up at his door will he realize that she is the Joy of the season?

Gabriel finds Joy this Christmas
Joy has the Christmas spirit. Gabriel does not. A delivery mishap provides the introduction and a night out provides a steamy night of 'wrapping presents' giving Gabriel some Christmas spirit. Then a family emergency has Gabriel right back where he started. He just needs to find his Christmas Joy. Romantic, sexy, holiday short story that is sure to warm your heart. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Santa’s Special Delivery by Sierra Hill a snowy five-star read. Please take me away to Snowdon, I need the magic in my life. Gabriel Frost is a man who may very well have icicles growing from his fingertips he is such a grump. But all he needs are some delicious cookies and his Grandad. Who wouldn’t love a bunch of extra parcels delivered to them? My postman is like my bed friend some days. This story will melt those icicles and warm your heart.

Santa’s Special Delivery is a package well worth unwrapping. It was full of joy, cheer and just enough frost to ensure the full Christmas experience. This short steamy holiday romance will have your eyes twinkling, your heart singing as Gabriel and Joy discover that Christmas is all about making wishes come true.

This was a cute and corny very short Christmas novella. I loved how Sierra weaved a story with cute Christmas sayings and reminders of the Christmas spirit. She gave us a quick read with just the right amount of romance and laughter to put a dorky smile on your face.

I love little cosy reads that you can just curl up with and with this book by Sierra Hill, that’s exactly what she’s given you. I’m not a huge lover of short quick reads, but honestly I think that she has nailed this book perfectly. There was nothing that I could fault and considering this is the second book I’ve read of hers, I’m honestly impressed with what’s she’s written. It has everything you could ask for in a short, hot book and honestly it was well worth read. If you are a huge fan of Ch ...more

Loved this story. A cute and quick Christmas novella. What started out as an address snafu turned into something much more. Gabriel and Joy were so good together. Their chemistry was so hot. Gabriel was a bit of a scrooge but all he needed was a little Joy in his life and he was able to embrace the Christmas season and get the HEA he needed, that they both needed. Ms. Hill didn’t disappoint and I can’t wait to read what she has next.

Such a fun quick holiday read from Sierra Hill. Unexpectedly writing the wrong address for Christmas packages might just bring you to someone you want to know, but when Joy Winters meets Gabriel Frost she can’t help wonder if his Scrooge like tendencies is really that man or he’s just hiding behind it all.
Gabriel & Joy are perfect for one another, her happiness most definitely balances out his ornery ways but when push comes to shove you want them to find a Christmas miracle and be the couple t

Totally put me in the holiday spirit! There is some real sexy chemistry between these 2. This was a great short read that gives all the sexy holiday feels. And the story behind the actions is really a great one! I love that Joy was doing something good and then was hit with a total grouch in her process. I really could have read a lot more about these 2 and had no problems staying interested. I think their dynamic along with the back stories really made for a great and interesting match!

Who would think that misspelling an address for 35 holiday boxes for charity would bring Joy to Mr. Frost.

Gabriel wasn't always a mean one. He's dealing with alot but getting to know Joy is melting the Frost. I liked these two, as they grow closer you feel the realness of it.

Joy and her friend love this time of year but now she has a whole new reason to add to her list. The names of these characters are very fitting. A cute, steamer to keep you warm on a long cold night. I received an ARC for a

Gabriel is quite the scrooge and Joy just wants to make Christmas special for as many children as possible. When these two are brought together by chance, sparks fly between them. Will Joy's infectious holiday spirit change Gabriel's sour mood? Definitely recommend this cute and fun holiday novella that will leave you with a smile on your face. ...more

Wow! My first book by this author and I loved it! It’s a quick read but chocked full of great banter, sexiness, and the holiday spirit. Joy is sweet and loving and Gabriel, we’ll he’s had a rough year and let’s just say he’s a little grumpy these days. When these to meet due to an address error he’s mesmerized by Joy and the spark between them is contagious. I loved this quirky, fun loving read for the holidays. I received a copy of this book.

Gabriel the “Scrooge” Frost can bahumbug me any day! This story was jam packed with laughter, heat and enough Christmas cheer to put a smile on anyone’s face!

I absolutely enjoyed Joy and Gabriel’s whirlwind romance! Each page had me craving more and before I knew it I was done with this amazing story!

Fantastic short read. Sweet and sexy all in one, that will put you in to holiday spirit. I loved Joy and Gabriel story. This is my first Sierra Hill book, I definitely want to read her other books!

This is a rather short story all about Christmas feelings and things Christmasy. Scrooge has a big part in the story as does the lovely Christmas spirit - i.e. the leading lady of the story who is a true representative of all things good after her hard life. This story is short enough to be read in an evening and still complete enough that it doesn´t really lack in context due to it´s shortness. So overall it is quite a good story and I am really glad that I can give it four beautiful stars.

Who doesn't want more holiday cheer this time of year?
Meet Joy Winters, the sweet and generous charity co-founder for under privileged children. But an error in a delivery address sends her gift donations to the wrong address!
Can she spread some joy to the grumpy, icicle-hearted, Gabriel Frost?
