Hard-edged fireman Dean Mulligan has never been a big fan of Christmas. Twinkly lights and sparkly tinsel can’t brighten the memories of too many years spent in ramshackle foster homes. Although he’s established himself as one of the top firefighters at San Gabriel Station 1, he doesn’t think he’s good enough for someone like gorgeous Lizzie.

Lizzie Breen is used to fighting—from her alpha male brothers, who try to smother her in the name of safety, to the life-threatening childhood illness she overcame. She knows what she and Mulligan feel for each other is a lot more than a fling, but she can’t get him to see that. The only gift Lizzie wants to give him this season is her love, but he’s not willing to accept it.

When Mulligan is trapped in the burning wreckage of a holiday store, a Christmas angel arrives to open his eyes. But is it too late? This Christmas, it’ll take an angel, a determined woman in love, and the entire Bachelor Firemen crew to make him believe … it is indeed a wonderful life.

smartfunny SEXY ROMANCE
IT’S A WONDERFUL FIREMAN is a cute, sexy and heart warming contemporary romance where fireman Mulligan hates Christmas. So where would be the “funniest” place for a fireman like Mulligan to get trapped on Christmas Eve Eve? A Christmas store named Under the Mistletoe.

While on a call, Mulligan and his fire squad are called to a fire at a local shopping center. Mulligan is the last to get off the roof and gets trapped in the store after a fall. Mulligan has hallucinations where his girlfriend Lizzie visits him via Clarence (angel from It’s a Wonderful) style. But instead of an angel Lizzie is dressed as a naughty elf. But she not there to kiss Mulligan under the mistletoe, she’s there to show him that he is a good guy that deserves love.

Mulligan had a hard childhood with a mother that was in and out of rehab, a stepfather that beat him and moved from foster home to foster home. Mulligan has been told he’s no good for most of his life that he believes it and doesn’t think he is good for Lizzie and tells her to forget him and find someone that deserves her.

Lizzie is the little sister to one of fireman in Mulligan’s station. So they’ve been trying to keep their relationship a secret so they are not the gossip of the fire station. But when Mulligan is the one being rescued it all comes out that everyone but Mulligan and Lizzie knew the two were in love.

Jennifer Bernard brings you a fun and sexy holiday themed romance in IT’S A WONDERFUL FIREMAN that is sure to stoke your fire.

 


EXCERPT

“You shouldn’t be flirting with the new probie. If Fred was here, he’d tell you.”

Mulligan looked very sure of that fact—arrogant, even. She assessed the bump in his

nose, the way his biceps bulged from the sleeves of his T-shirt, his air of absolute

assurance. Another girl might be intimidated, but Lizzie had grown up with four brothers

who’d become soldiers and a firefighter. She’d outgrown intimidation by the age of six.

“Why are you so suspicious of Ace? He’s part of the brotherhood, isn’t he?”

“Not yet,” Mulligan said with decisive finality, as if everything had now been

settled. “You stay here, and I’ll tell him to get lost.”

“You will not!” She grabbed his arm as he brushed past her. It felt like grabbing a

log, that’s how thick and strong his forearm was. “It’s none of your business.”

“It is my business. Freddie’s my business. We’re tight.”

“If you were that tight, you’d know that his only involvement with my love life is

feeding me ice cream after a breakup,” she snapped. “Stay out of it, Mulligan. You have

some nerve, you really do. I’ve never even met you before, and you’re trying to tell me

who to sleep with.”

He stopped dead. She kept her hand on his arm because it felt so good. His

tendons tightened under her touch, and she saw his jaw flex.

A quick flick of his wrist, and suddenly she was pressed against him, chest to

chest, thighs to thighs. Sensation poured through her; it felt like standing next to a

volcano. “I’m not telling you who to sleep with. I’m telling you who not to sleep with.”

“Oh, really?” she snapped, furious. “Who should I not sleep with?”

“Anyone but me.”

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).

    • I’ve only read this novella and another novella at the beginning of the series. I have all the other books (but one) in print, ebook and audio format. It’s a series I’ll be reading in 2015.
