On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me … a Santa Claus.
It’s the holidays. A time Deacon Brady spends with his family in New York City during the most wonderful time of the year.
This year, things are different for the former Hollywood Soap Opera star and A-Lister. Now, Deacon Brady is unemployed, and at the brink of losing everything due to the Global Financial Crisis.
All he wants to do is enjoy the holidays, be with Brodie, and try to get his life back on track. That quickly changes however, when he meets the attractive and mysterious stranger known as Kris … Kris Kringle that is.
With news from Brodie that will change Deacon’s life forever, can he find happiness with Kris for the holidays?
The Santa Claus is told through the eyes of multiple character points of view who appear in the Men of the World Series. The main character, Deacon Brady, his sister Kate, Brodie, his boyfriend, the mysterious and gorgeous looking Kris, and producer of Tainted Love, Dante. It serves as a prequel to the Men of the World Series and ties in to the events of the first book.
