Book Description:

When I was a little boy, the best thing about the holiday season was unwrapping presents on Christmas morning — tearing off the paper and tossing it on the floor. Now that I’m a man, I like to unwrap slowly, deliberately, taking my time to savor what lies before me. I still like to throw the wrapping on the floor, but now I know the best gifts come wrapped in lace.

And unlike when I was a kid, I won’t get sick of this present by New Year’s. I’ll definitely be playing with this girl day after day after day.

After six years avoiding my hometown, the last thing I expected when I returned was a wannabe bad girl to unwrap my heart and rip open my soul. But that’s exactly what happened. Now if I can just get the hell out of my own way, maybe I’ll finally get the best gift of all — her!

Come get unwrapped by Drew this holiday.

Book Excerpt:

“There was this guy.”
“OOH, a guy.”
“Shut up,” I said, laughing.  “We flirted and drank all night, and he was so hot and sweet and. . . .”
“You are totally gushing over a boy.  I can’t believe it.”
“I am not,” I protested, but I knew I was.  “I don’t even know his name.”
“Why not?”
“I threw up before we got that far.”
Sabrina fell back on my bed laughing.  “You did not.”
I hid my head back under my pillow.  “I did.”
“Girl, you are hopeless,” she said, still laughing.  “How hot was he?”
I came out from hiding.  “Pretty damn hot.”
“As in you’d shave for him?  That hot?”
“As in I’d wax for him.”
Sabrina started to fan herself, and I got up and headed to my bathroom, looking for some aspirin.  “We’ve got to find this wax-worthy gentleman,” Sabrina called out.

My Book Review:

Wrapped In Lace is a wonderful holiday romance story about two childhood best friends who are unexpectedly reunited in their hometown during the Christmas holiday after being apart for ten years, and their discovery of the holiday season's magical gift of receiving a chance at love.

Author Prescott Lane weaves a beautiful romantic tale that takes the reader on a emotional roller coaster ride as they follow Drew and Piper's love story. Their story is set in the small southern town of McAdenville, North Carolina, nicknamed Christmas Town USA. Told in alternating first person narratives by Drew and Piper, their reuniting is wrought with family drama, hurt, betrayal, forgiveness, and the amazing discovery of unrequited love fulfilled, it is a story that tugs at the heartstrings, but will also make the reader a believer in the ability of finding true love.

The story has enough drama, romance, angst, betrayal, difficult personal and family issues, and a swoon worthy best friends reuniting and discovering true love theme that will easily captivate the reader's attention. You can't help but feel compassion for Drew and Piper as their story unfolds with intriguing twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages, and hoping that they will get their chance at love. I loved how the author draws the reader into Drew and Piper's story with flashbacks to their childhood past intertwined with the present filled with emotional family drama, and a slow smoldering craving and build up of sexual tension that leads up to a passionate romance that will send tingles down your spine. I would be remiss if I didn't mention the author's rich description of the setting, she easily transports the reader to the small southern North Carolina town known for its holiday decorations, it is sure to get them in the holiday spirit.

Wrapped In Lace is a beautiful holiday romance story of true love and moving forward in life that will resonate with you for a very long time.
