A Very Merry Christmas Romance

A Heartwarming Friends to Lovers Holiday Short Story

After a Christmas Eve blizzard snows the town in, tearoom assistant Charlotte Cradduck is expecting a quiet Christmas with her best childhood friend Will.

However the shy Charlotte is horrified to learn that not only is Will staying with his large and exuberant family, they are also hosting their extended relations this holiday…

As the two friends slowly realise they have fallen for each other during the exuberant festivities and Charlotte gradually overcomes her initial nervousness, will they finally confess their feelings?

Or does Will’s high-spirited family and the unexpected appearance of his ambitious ex eventually drive the couple apart?

Author's Notes

I love a feel-good romance especially when it is set at Christmas. And coming from a large and exuberant family myself, I wanted to write a sweet friend-to-lovers romance story that features our traditional over the top Christmas celebrations.

So while revelling in the joys (and acknowledging the awkwardness!) of friends and families at Christmas, I hope this sweet romance gives readers a festive HFN to enjoy as the holidays loom.
