From the moment I read the premise I was intrigued. I mean who doesn't want to read about a sporty hunk Santa and his 5 grown up gorgeous sons? I was instantly curious about Penny Watson's original approach to the holiday legend and I can say it was utterly charming. As soon as I started reading the novel the festive athmosphere enveloped me: I could smell baking cinnamon cookies, see the snowy streets lit with Christmas lights and feel the holiday spirit.

I didn't find Lucy a heroine I could understand: she teared up every 3 minutes then sometimes became so fierce and feisty I wondered if she had a weepy twin. She is a sweet and kind character, but for me the highlight of the novel were the supporting characters: all the adorable funny elves, some cute, some grumpy but all so unique and entertaining. The North Pole village created by Penny Watson is a wonderful place where everything is permeated by the magic of Christmas.

I love the idea that each son of Santa is in charge of something to make Christmas the success it is: Nicholas is the pastry chef (and expected to take over as CEO of Klaus Enterprises), Sven is Chief Toy Designer and Woodworker, Wolfie is Director of Chraitable Donations for Klaus Enterprises, Gregor is Director of Finances for Klaus Enterprises, Oskar is Director of Elfin Resources. :-D I can't wait to read about the other brothers and get to know them better!

Verdict: Sweet Inspiration is a fluffy, cozy, cookies and latte Christmas romance. Don't expect much angst and dilemma, Sweet Inspiration is the ultimate light romantic reading for a Christmas afternoon. I would have prefered a bit more depth, "meat" added to the romance of the hero/heroine, but Penny Watson's world building and unique universe is completely spellbinding! Best enjoyed with some crunchy dessert and hot cocoa :-)

Lucy Brewster is feeling a bit lonely as Christmas approaches. Running her own bakery, Sweet Inspiration, keeps her busy, but with no family to speak of the Holidays can feel a little...empty. But all that's about to change.

Santa's oldest son, Nicholas Klaus, Jr., has heard that the best sugar cookies can be found at a little bakery in a tiny town in upstate New York. He visits Sweet Inspiration in search of the secret recipe and finds himself completely smitten by the bakery's pretty owner. Since Nick can't exactly reveal his identity to Lucy it doesn't appear that their romance will ever get off the ground. But fate intervenes and Lucy is introduced to a whole new world...and a family of gorgeous Klaus brothers to go with it!

This is one very cute Christmas fairy tale for grown-ups. There are elves and magic. Flying sleighs. Smokin' hot men. Love scenes hot enough to melt the polar ice cap. Ladies, this is NOT your mother's Santa Claus! Granted, it's a little "out there" but I thought it was a lot of fun.

Now they say time seems to speed up around the Holidays, and you certainly feel that way while you're reading this story. Lucy and Nick fall in love in near record time and Lucy becomes the darling of the North Pole in all of 48 hours! But hey, this is a fantasy, right? And who doesn't over- indulge in the sweet stuff just a little (OK - a lot) during the Holidays? It's a warm, charming and spicy little story - Enjoy!

Some strong language and sexual content. This is one Christmas story that's definitely not meant for the kids.

Penny Watson's Sweet Inspiration is chock full of Christmas cheer. This is an adorable, sexy story that should be wrapped in a big red bow and given to any reader as a present. Penny takes the Santa Claus myth and gives is a nice sexy twist where Santa is jolly, but not with a belly that looks like it's filled with jelly. Nick Sr. has five strapping sons who would make any woman swoon. The first in what looks to be an annual holiday series showcases Santa's eldest son, Nicholas, last name Klaus, who loves to bake. Poor Nick Jr. is expected to take over to role of Santa, one he doesn't want since he feels his calling is making sweet treats for children and adults alike.

Nick is taking some time off before he returns to the North Pole, better known as Glasdorf. While in the "charming little town of Easton, New York", a woman catches his eye. Lucy Anne Brewster owns a bakery/cafe in Easton called Sweet Inspirations, and the moment he tastes this freckled, blushing redhead's sugar cookies, Nick is lost. He wouldn't mind tasting Lucy (you know I just had to throw that in there) and plans to seduce the adorable baker. Nick isn't too thrilled with his attraction to Lucy. He's the type who sees most things cut and dry, and doesn't like surprises. But Lucy has gotten under his skin and he must fix this before his lust becomes too hard to control.

Lucy has noticed the huge, towering bearded aloof Nick. Oh, and he wears wire-rimmed glasses as well. At first she thinks he may be a food critic from the way he analyzes everything he buys and eats from her. Finally they talk, and Nick decides to go out of his way to help Lucy after her Goth wearing assistant, who loves to listen to Celine Dion, ups and leaves her to and elope with her boyfriend.
