Dear Santa by Nick Chester of Cynthia Gail’s ‘Winter’s Magic’

000009In order to kick the holiday season off right, Literarily Speaking will be hosting authors from November 14 – December 14 with a fun way to celebrate the season called “Dear Santa.” Yep, lots of crazy, fun, sentimental, what have you, Dear Santa letters by authors of all genres. Only, this will be a little different as the Dear Santa letters won’t be from the author’s POV, but from their character’s POV. What a fun way to get inside the minds of some of these characters during the Christmas season!

Today’s guest is Nick Chester from ‘Winter’s Magic” by Cynthia Gail.

After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. When he chooses to socialize, he has a never-ending list of exclusive events and beautiful women vying for his attention. Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda.

1111Dear Santa,

I’ve met the most beautiful woman. She has long auburn hair and gorgeous green eyes. And those curves …

As the owner of La Bella Vita, she spent an hour taking me on a tour of her elegant day spa and treated me to a sample temple massage. She has the most amazing fingers. I was so mesmerized that I almost forgot about the present I was there to purchase.

Grandfather tells me that our mothers were friends growing up. If not for the accident, I would have met her a long time ago. Oh, how my life might have been different, if I had. I’ve spent years dating beautiful women who only cared about being seen with me. Wanting the things I could buy them. Assuming I had my grandfather’s money.

But the laugh is on them. Grandfather paid for my college education, giving me a foundation in life. But Brandon and I have sacrificed and built our business without a dime of help from either one of our families.

This woman is different. I can feel it all the way to my soul.

Next Friday’s Christmas party is the first event Grandfather has held at the family estate in over twenty years. He’s going to make a phone call to ensure she joins her parents. I can’t get her out of my head. She makes me think about things … want things … that I’ve barely allowed myself to ever dream of.

I know now what I want in life. A wife and a house full of children. The white picket fence and a dog named Buddy. I want it all.

So, Santa, I’ve been a really good boy this year and I promise I will be for the rest of my life, if you’ll grant this one request.

Give me Beth Sergeant for Christmas.

I’m a believer,

Nick Chester

Cynthia GailAbout the Author:

My husband and I live in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee with our teenage son and three dogs. Life is busy, but when I have free time, I love to read. A math/science girl at heart and a retail analyst by trade, I never thought I’d be writing romance. But one day, a story popped into my head and I had to write it down. The fantasy, escape, and wonder of just reading multiplied by ten-fold and I couldn’t stop my fingers from typing my own fairy tales.

I hope you enjoy my stories. Each one touches on modern day issues, fears, and challenges that women face every day. And each one illustrates that love is within reach if you let down those walls and allow your heart to open. Our lives and experiences are so much more meaningful when we have someone to share them with.

Cynthia’s latest book is the contemporary romance, Winter’s Magic (Book 1 in the Music City Hearts series).

Winter's MagicAbout the Book:

Beth Sergeant and Nick Chester come from opposite ends of the social food chain. While he sees a beautiful woman without an agenda, she sees a wealthy playboy. Can he convince her to let go of her insecurities and take a chance on love, when challenges from his past force her to reveal her most guarded secret?

Owner of La Bella Vita, a five-star day spa nestled in the affluent suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, Beth Sergeant knows her elite clientele first hand. She attended their private schools. She was even engaged, although briefly, to one of their most recognized bachelors. But she never fit in to their social-elite world.

After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. When he chooses to socialize, he has a never-ending list of exclusive events and beautiful women vying for his attention. Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda.

Beth can’t resist Nick’s charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she’s nothing like other women Nick’s dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick’s past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.
