Love Christmas blog post 12 – We Need A Little Christmas by Leanne Banks #mgtab #holiday romance

1-we-need-a-little-christmas-author-leanne-banksThe song “We Need A Little Christmas” has an interesting past.  I remember it from when my mother put the vinyl record album (yes, it was that long ago!) on our stereo system as we decorated our white aluminum Christmas tree.  The Percy Faith orchestra and chorus really knew how to get us into the holiday spirit.

Years later, I learned that this song was written by Jerry Herman for the Broadway musical MAME!  We need a little Christmas was first performed by Angela Lansbury in 1966.

I believe the sentiment of the song still holds true today.  Many of us can get a bit cranky and cynical, and we need a change in attitude.  That’s what has happened to my wealthy hero.  He doesn’t mind writing checks for Christmas, but he doesn’t want to get personally involved, and he has reason for his cynicism.

When handsome cynic, Justin Dane Burgess, rescues big-hearted Lilly Johansen in the snow, his life is turned upside down.  Accustomed to avoiding intense relationships and the whole sticky Christmas season, he finds himself drawn into her life and he learns to enjoy everything from drinking hot chocolate to decorating a Christmas tree and helping Lilly’s elderly neighbors.

Orphaned from a young age, Lilly has learned to create her own family wherever she is.  Although Justin seems anti-Christmas, he is generous and thoughtful to her. But she has been misled by men before.  Can she trust her feelings for Justin?

Or will a bad choice Justin has made ruin their chance for forever love?

  1. Here’s another story that has me sitting on the edge of my patience waiting for the book to be released. Even though I could read the formatted files, I’ve forced myself to wait until the collection hits my kindle. Then the lamp will be burning for a few nights reallll late 🙂
