Candice Gaines loves Christmas. Not only does she bask in the twinkling lights, sing Christmas carols and go crazy with the decorations, she’s also in the giving spirit, donating much of her time and wealth to various charities in the local area.
Charlie Sullivan despises Christmas. Though it keeps his family afloat, considering they own Sullivan Family Christmas Tree Farm, the main provider for Christmas trees on the Monterey peninsula. He’d much rather work among the trees versus have to deal with people.
But Charlie’s parents are taking on more philanthropic projects—and as their oldest child, they want him to be their official public representative. He just has to play nice and convince everyone he’s not a total holiday hater.
When Charlie’s mom asks Candice to accompany him to a variety of holiday parties and events, she reluctantly agrees. She thinks Charlie is a big ol’ Grinch, but is determined to change his mindset and help him spread Christmas cheer. Charlie finds Candice too chatty, too sweet, too much. Do people like her really exist?
Why yes, yes they do. The more time they spend together—along with a few kisses under the mistletoe—the more they start to like each other. Hopefully Charlie can convince Candice he doesn’t have a heart that’s two sizes too small before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.
A stand-alone, contemporary romance.

Holidate by Monica Murphy is the third book in The Dating Series. This fun, dynamic series is based on the complications of the modern day dating world, alpha heroes who are clueless with the world of relationships and romance but experts in the bedroom. It takes a strong willed woman to put up with these heroes.
Candice Gaines may seem like a meek heiress spending her time working on one charity after another but that is only a general impression. Beneath the sugar and spice is a strong willed woman who is compassionate, organized, and sensible. She’s very reluctant when she’s recruited to help introduce Charlie Sullivan from the Sullivan Family Tree Farm into the community holiday events and festivities for philanthropic purposes. After a hearing a lot of negative opinions from her “girl posse” she’s inclined to refuse her help. After an unfortunate incident she finds herself guiding grumpy Charlie through the holiday season. He makes the Grinch look cheerful and Scrooge seem generous.
Spending his life working on the farm and making their fortune off the holiday season, the last thing Charlie wants to do is spend his free time celebrating the season. He would work through all the holiday festivities if it wasn’t for his deal with Candice and his mother. Here’s hoping there’s lots of spiked eggnog and an overabundance of mistletoe. What Charlie doesn’t know is it’s his season to fall head over heels in love.
Holidate is another fun, charming romance by Monica Murphy. This book can be read as a stand alone romance or in series order. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the holiday season. I only wish we had a sexy tree farmer in our community.
