When Sheriff Nick Grey is talked into playing Santa at the local mall by his devious sister, he fully expects to have a miserable time. What he doesn't know is that she has convinced Peter DeKell to play one of his elves. Peter's the town's librarian and has been the object of Nick's affection since they were both children. The only problem is that while the entire town knows that the Sheriff is head over heels for the quiet librarian, Peter seems at best oblivious and at worst not interested.
After being faced with the temptation of Peter in tights, Nick finally breaks down and asks Peter to dinner and is elated when he accepts. When disaster strikes in the form of an ill-timed kiss, Nick has to make a choice. Is he willing to finally give up on being with Peter? Or will the lawman fight for his librarian's affections?

This particular short story starts with a bang - funny, erotic with amazing sexual tension where a sheriff/ Santa lusts after an oblivious librarian/elf. I was chuckling along, loving the stuttering lawman and impatiently waiting for that moment when everything is revealed and they get their happily ever after.
While everything pretty much does happen in that order, the second part of the story pulled out all these unrealistic and, at certain moments, even cruel situations that the magic for me just evaporated and I was left there reading a simple and predictable story.
I disliked the side characters and that was probably what colored my whole impression of the book. It was one of those situations where enemies would have been preferable to friends and family, and that's not something I like to read about.
The main characters were pretty cute, just not developed as well as they could have been, but they did make for a simple enjoyable story that will give you a bit of a Christmas boost.
