A wealthy guest who pushes past his defenses and into his heart.
A Christmas party with polar bears and adorable children to bring them together.
Joe Cantonelli has a chip on his shoulder the size of The Grande Pearl—the pre-war building where he serves as doorman. He doesn’t fraternize with the residents or their guests . . . until a nor’easter blows in Josie McFarland—the grandniece of The Pearl’s most influential occupant.
It’s been two years and Josie hasn’t stopped missing her beloved great-uncle. When she returns to The Pearl to see for herself how his widow—her favorite great-aunt—is coping, she doesn’t expect love at first sight with grumpy Joe.
As they work together to decorate The Pearl for its annual shindig benefitting leukemia patients and their families, can Josie smash the wall Joe’s spent years building between him and the rich?
Christmas at The Grande Pearl is a short, interracial bwwm holiday romance.
