Dani will not allow The Grinch to hide from Christ­mas. She will cure Hunter of his nasty mood, even if it kills her. But who will save her from his pas­sion­ate kisses.

War hero, Hunter Gra­ham, has seen enough dev­as­ta­tion to last a life­time. At the end of his lat­est Army term, he accepted his dis­charge papers and never looked back. His uncle’s home is tucked away in the majes­tic moun­tains, a per­fect place for him to hide from Christ­mas and his own mem­o­ries. But he can’t hide from the delec­table Dani. The last thing he needs is a female in his life. But this one has the face of an angel and eyes you can drown in.

Dani Wimer left the Col­orado moun­tains and relo­cated in the bright lights of New York City. Every Decem­ber she returns to the vil­lage of Wyattsville. When a hunky mil­i­tary guy enters her aunt’s shoppe, he seems lost and angry. His scowl is intim­i­dat­ing, but that doesn’t bother the spunky girl who cel­e­brates the hol­i­days like it’s Christ­mas every day. She decides to put a smile on his Grinch face and ends up los­ing her heart in a pas­sion­ate whirlwind.

A Hero Grinch for Christmas is the first book by Samanthya Wyatt that I've read so far. It was definitely an entertaining and fast read, perfect for this time of year when you want to escape from all the hustle and bustle. Dani was not a shy girl, and she was pretty brazen when it came to Hunter. She made herself seem very easy. She said she wasn't normally like that, but as the reader, this is the only side of her we get to know. Grinch was very fitting for Hunter. He was moody and withdrawn, but it's completely understandable why he's that way. This is a short book, so everything happens quickly. I enjoyed reading it.

The ARC of A Hero Grinch For Christmas by Samanthya Wyatt was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.

Dani stood under the spray of hot water chasing the chill from her bones. She was warm and safe and thinking about her gruff host, remembering the night Hunter came into Fay’s shop. He seemed like a lost soul, but she’d felt a strong pull toward him. Tall, blond, muscular, all the things that attracted a woman. But she’d seen something else in his eyes. A surge she couldn’t explain, and she’d felt herself drowning.
She’d taken a risk by touching him. Covering his hand in compassion. But she was glad she’d initiated the move. He hadn’t pulled away. At least not right away.
She knew his brusque demeanor must be because of his uncle’s death. And today? He didn’t seem too happy to find her on his doorstep. To be fair, she had been in an accident. Just a spin—a very scary spin—off the road. But she’d been in danger from the cold and snow.
He’d taken one good look at her and acted with real concern and caring.
Yes. There was more to the man than his gruff exterior.
Dani snapped out of her daydream and turned the knobs shutting off the water. All she had to do was come up with something to make him smile.

Samanthya lives with her husband in the Shenandoah Valley. She left her accounting career and married a military man traveling and making her home in the United States and abroad. Once she found historical romance novels, she couldn’t put a book down. She fell in love with the characters and needed to know their happy ending.

One day she put words to paper creating a story of her own. The more she wrote, the more she became involved with the characters, and they seemed to take a life of their own. She relishes the challenge of penning a story with strong characters, a bit of humor, and active scenes while creating new characters and bringing them together in a romantic tale. It took years of writing, joining RWA, joining chapters, entering contests, submissions & rejections which created the author she is today. By keeping her spirit and turning criticism into drive she has achieved her career as a published romance author.
