4 stars-- Hot Winter Nights (Heartbreaker Bay #6) by Jill Shalvis

Hot Winter Nights was so dang fun. And had some good snort-worthy moments. I do love when characters get a little bashful and when creative terminology is tossed about...

“You’re still looking,” she said. 

“I’ve seen it all already, remember?”

“Actually, no, you haven’t. We played assault with your friendly weapon in my dark living room. And then in your dark bedroom. You haven’t seen anything.” 

He turned toward her in the driver seat, brows arched so high, they vanished into his hairline. “Assault with my friendly weapon?”

“Just close your damn eyes!”

Ah so good! Hot Winter Nights provided exactly that. Woo! Yes, it heat things up real nice and gave some good laughs along the way. 
The Gist: Molly is tired of just being the office manager at a security firm. She wants to work a case just like the guys. And she has one-- her neighbor thinks something hinky is going on with the local Christmas village. And Lucas--poor dumb bastard--has been tasked with secretly keeping her safe. 
Yes, I liked these two. Molly and Lucas are a handful. They give each other a bit of hell, turn each other on, frustrate and charm each other. Molly's a determined lady. She's overcome a lot in her life and is a force of nature. Lucas a strong silent (somewhat) type. A protector at heart and a good guy. 

Their romance was fun, too. They have some fantastic chemistry and heat up the sheets. She did try to pull a runner, though. Lord help her because Lucas is not a man to run from. lol But they also work well together and it was nice seeing them grow closer as they tried to figure out what the 'bad Santa' was up to. 

A little mystery and danger rounded things out nicely. They worked well together and it was fun watching them grow closer as they tried to figure out what was up with the "bad Santa" at the village. 

Overall, a fabulous time was had. Hot Winter Nights was full of fun, sexy romance, wonderful friends, and a little Christmas goodness (complete with a hero in elf tights!). You really can't go wrong with a Jill Shalvis. 

Most people wouldn't think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn't most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she's been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that--but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .

Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don't mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he's shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly's brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can't believe he's drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who's the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he's ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he's been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.
