Book Description

What if the legend of Santa Claus is in fact, true? What if Santa has five big strapping sons who help him run his empire? Five single, sexy sons looking for romance...

Nicholas Klaus is a master pastry chef, a strict disciplinarian, and the eldest son of the legendary Santa Claus. One look at café owner Lucy Brewster sends him into an unexpected tailspin of lusty desires. When Lucy is injured, Nicholas makes a decision that catapults both of their lives into turmoil.

Lucy Brewster, the free-spirited proprietor of Sweet Inspiration, has a flair for concocting sugary confections but no time for adventure. She gets more than she bargained for when she awakens in the North Pole...rambunctious elves, a fitness-obsessed Santa, and the man of her dreams. Does she have what it takes to become the next Mrs. Klaus?

About the Author

PENNY WATSON is a native Pittsburgher whose love of romance started at the age of twelve when she discovered Gone With The Wind in the middle school library. This resulted in numerous attempts at a first novel involving a young lady with windswept hair who lived in a tree house. A biologist by training, Penny has worked at various times as a dolphin trainer, science teacher, florist, and turfgrass researcher. After taking time off to raise her two spirited children, she decided to rekindle her passion for storytelling with the support of a wonderful writer's group, The Quirky Ladies. Now she gets to incorporate her wide array of interests, including gardening, cooking and travel into her works of fiction. Penny lives outside of Boston with one fly-fishing crazed husband, two lively Filipino kids, and a wiener dog.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fluffy, cozy, cookies and latte Christmas romance January 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Santa made sexy December 18, 2010
By Dee18
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
`Sweet Inspiration' is the first e-book in a Christmas romance series from Penny Watson. The series is contemporary romance and based around the sons of St. Nicholas. . . Santa! There are five sons in the rambunctious Klaus family, and `Inspiration' is the story of Nicholas Klaus, Jr.

Nicholas is the North Pole's master baker - he runs a very efficient bakery called Klaus Küche, with the help of his elfin employees. But Nicholas is expected to follow in his father's footsteps and don the red-suit. As the eldest of the Klaus boys, it's up to Nicholas to give his parents the retirement they deserve and take over the sleigh-handles. . .

But one day Nicholas is side-tracked by a cute little baker and her sugar cookies. Lucy Brewster owns the bakery Sweet Inspiration, and her cookies have caught the eye of Nicholas Jr. . . to the point that Nicholas is willing to risk the secret of Glasdorf (the North Pole) and jeopardize his Santa-suit.

I've got to hand it to Penny Watson; she has some seriously big baubles. It's not easy making a sexy contemporary romance out of pop culture's most un-sexy man. And let's be honest, between the obesity, glaring red suit and ancient-age, Santa Claus really aint' all that smokin. Of course, Watson isn't writing about *the* Santa (who just so happens to be a marathon-runner with a six-pack!), she's focused her series on the offspring of the fat man. But still, Christmas isn't generally associated with `sexiness' and I certainly wouldn't have thought such steamy sex scenes could go down in the North Pole. Penny Watson has done the seemingly impossible and made Santa sexy.

Be warned, this is still a Christmas story. . . so it's filled with the requisite mush and sugarplums - there are even freakin elves, for cryin out loud!
