Candy Caine, author of CHRISTMAS WITH A STRANGER, proves you can find love anywhere, especially when you are not looking. Graphic artist Allie Benson receives a call from her boss asking her to use her pilot experience to pick up a very important client. Although she is a licensed pilot for her own enjoyment, it is her day off, and two days before Christmas, she relents and assists her boss.

When she arrives in Maine, she picks up the very handsome and sexy Roy Colby. They both seem to have an attraction for each other at first sight. But all is not well in the friendly skies. The small plane is experiencing problems that will lead this young woman, who lives with her boyfriend of two years, to do something out of the ordinary.

Stranded, these two people find they are having a problem containing the burning passion inside of them. Although they both have someone they love at home. Will they ignore the fire igniting in their bodies or will they die waiting to be rescued?

CHRISTMAS WITH A STRANGER is a good story. Unfortunately it is too short to develop a strong plot. The story moves too fast. I recommend this story because it is romantic and will hold your attention to the end of the story.

PLOT: Allie receives a 5 a.m. call from her boss to fly in an important client, Roy Colby. Allie is immediately attracted to Roy. When they are forced to make an emergency landing, rescue is delayed by snow. They take shelter in a small shack. They are both involved with someone else, but give in to their mutual attraction as they don't know if rescue will come in time. Once she's home, Allie can't forget him.

PROS: Told in the first person point of view from Allie's perspective, Christmas with a Stranger is well-written. The attraction between Roy and Allie feels real. They don't just immediately jump into bed together. You get the sense that in a short time, they got to know each other really well and fell in love. I liked them both.

CONS: It could be longer so that the plot has more time to unfurl. I especially thought the time after Allie returns home could have used more development. The passage of time was difficult to gauge. I couldn't tell if it was a few days or a year between the beginning and the conclusion. Allie does sleep with her boyfriend and with Roy within a matter of days and it just feels wrong although you know she has feelings for Wesley going in. I rather expected this to happen when I purchased the book but still . ...

4 STARS: Christmas with a Stranger is a quick enjoyable read.

This story was a very good read. It was short story that moves rather quickly. The characters are interesting. Great steamy romantic scences. It's worth the purchase!

Worth the price and not a penny more. This article was less than 26 pages long and within that small amount of time the female slept with two men without any qualms. If I was the male I would be sure to get a strong prenupt. Still trying to figure out how they were able to get busy on a small cot. Terrible picture of female lead also.

This story would have been better if the characters had not tried to go back to the past after their affair! In a way the end justifies the mean but it leaves the reader hanging.
