A heartwarming holiday story that has special meaning in today's world.
Gina Reyes had embraced her inherited role as "Miss Santa," a major fund-raising event for San Antonio's needy families, but this year she must overcome Mr. Corporate America: the despicable, brilliant, warm, witty, delectable Lalo Navarro. TWO HEARTS, ONE GIFT Gina Reyes takes her job as Miss Santa seriously. There are more needy families in San Antonio than money to help them, especially around the holidays. This year she receives an incredible donation that comes with a price, her new co-chair. Her family has felt the sting of his company's Big Picture for the Greater Good philosophy, and the man represents everything she abhors. Lalo Navarro, a son of privilege, wants nothing more than to improve his beloved San Antonio. Imagine his surprise when he learns he's a demon and not a do-gooder. Pushed into accepting the Miss Santa co-chair to raise his political visibility, Lalo is soon humbled by Miss Santa herself, the shapely Gina Reyes, who somehow becomes everything he wants. On opposite sides of just about every issue imaginable, the only thing that could bring them together would be to follow their hearts...and then a Christmas miracle.
Cumming, Georgia journalist Jessica Holland isn't feeling the joy of the holiday. Recently dumped by someone she didn't even love, she's more fa la la la blah than fa la la la la. So when her best friend Ashley forces her to sit on Santa's lap at the local mall, the Scrooge in her comes out. Jessica doesn't believe in Santa - that silly myth is only for children. Or is he? When Santa tells Jessica he'll give her whatever she wants for Christmas and that she'll finally believe in his magic, she asks for the one thing she knows he can't give. She asks for true love. But can Santa make that happen?
