Kit Jefferies, a part-time department store Christmas elf, is an artist who loves life and his family. Unfortunately, his car dies at a rest stop in the middle of nowhere as he is heading home for Christmas. Enter Nick St. George.
Nick is a very unhappy man—he's achieved his professional goals only to find the rest of his life bleak and empty.

He's arrogant, conceited, and honestly, yes I felt for him , having such stupid, bigoted par...
2.5 starsI didn't like this story much. I didn't hate it, but I definitely didn't enjoy it -- the thing is, I have to agree with some of the things that Susan mentioned in her review (she wrote the review few hours before I posted this one, funny how we thought alike when I didn't even know she was ...
