Fool's Gold, California, a charming small town that's short on men, has captured thousands of readers' hearts in Susan Mallery's New York Times bestselling series. Fall in love with Fool's Gold's beloved characters and heartwarming romance in Only Us: A Fool's Gold Holiday Novella!

Pet groomer Carina Fiore wants nothing more than to confess her feelings to the man she loves. She's drawn to veterinarian Cameron McKenzie's good looks, caring nature and especially his devotion to his young daughter. But he's also her boss and a good friend. Putting her heart on the line could cost Rina both her job and their friendship forever.

Since his divorce, Cameron hasn't been willing to trust his heart--or his daughter--with anyone else. For months he's pushed away all thoughts of taking Rina in his arms and kissing her, unwilling to risk their friendship for a single night of pleasure. But when a kiss under the mistletoe unlocks the simmering passion between them, Rina and Cameron may just find love for the holidays after all....

My thoughts: As much as I love the full-length novels in this series, I love the novellas, too! They are very quick reads, but still pack the perfect amount of story and romance with a little bit of tension thrown in, too. Some romances are quick and the author can get to the heart of their story without needing a full-length novel and I think that was definitely the case with Cameron and Rina. True, they definitely didn't have an easy path to their happily-ever-after, but their story wasn't so complicated that it couldn't be told quickly. Add the holiday, some cute pets and Cameron's adorable daughter to the mix and you have a great story that can be read in one sitting.

The Fool's Gold series is quickly becoming one of my favorite series - and I'm really enjoying getting to know all the townspeople. I love the full-length novels, but these little novellas work for me, too!
