Summary

Twenty years ago, badass military commander John “Viper” Mendez lost the love of his life. But fate brought them back together when he discovered she was still alive. Now they live a happily married life—and Kat’s pregnant. As Christmas approaches, they’re more in love than ever and looking forward to welcoming their new baby.

But old secrets begin to resurface, and old enemies might be coming back to haunt them. The only way to know is to hire rogue mercenary Ian Black to do some dirty work while Mendez stays close to his wife and keeps her safe—and keeps the investigation a secret from her.

Christmas is a time of miracles. A season of snowy promises and gifts from the heart. When the holiday lights twinkle brightest, Mendez will either go on the offensive to save his family—or discover a truth that’ll change their lives forever.

This story is a sequel to the events of HOT Valor. I highly recommend you listen to that book first. Start listening to the Hostile Operations Team series Strike Team 1 today and enjoy an action-packed, seriously romantic, and steamy-good-fun military romantic suspense.

A festive treat.

A great Christmas novella following Mendez and Kat. I really enjoyed catching up with these two, they so deserved their HEA and I can listen to their stories again and again.

Perfect HOT Christmas Story!!!!

I absolutely adore the Hostile Operations Team books and all the spinoff series of books by Lynn Raye Harris. John "Viper" Mendez remains my absolute favorite character in the series, with Ian Black as a close second, so when I saw Viper had a Christmas story this year, I was totally and completely over the moon. Seriously, Ms. Harris gave her readers the very best early Christmas present this year!

I loved every single moment of A HOT Christmas Miracle. As the story centers around Mendez and Cat and the pending birth of their new baby, I was so happy to get to revisit these characters and see where life had taken them since HOT VALOR. I also loved getting to spend time with all the HOT family members, and especially Ian Black. I feel like I'm spending time with friends when reading each new installment in this series. Ms. Harris totally delivered with a family Christmas story with a few surprises thrown in along the way. I can't wait to see what happens next with the Hostile Operations Team and their families in upcoming books.

Both Logan McAllister and Melissa Moran did an amazing job with A HOT Christmas Miracle!!! Mendez and Cat are absolutely 2 of my favorite characters in the series, so getting to revisit them gave me all the happy feels. I felt like the change between narrators happened seamlessly, and both did an amazing job giving the various characters their own distinct voices. The HOT series remains one of my favorites from Ms. Harris, and listening to the audiobooks only makes me love the stories and the characters even more!

So Good

This is a lovely novella. It was nice to revisit a favorite couple. I thought the plot was unique, interesting and perfect for a Christmas story. If you are looking for a feel-good story with some action this is the perfect audio for that.

So much HOT goodness

This is a different style book than the traditional HOT books, but still very good. Traditionally, there is either a war zone or threat of some kind to a loved one of a HOT team member. In this case, there is a potential threat that turns out to be a blessing.

Kat and Mendez are preparing for the arrival of their new baby as the holidays approach. Will Johnny be able to keep Kat and his baby safe? Will Kat deliver the baby on the side of the road? Will their past come back to haunt them?

This book is a continuation of Mendez's book published a few years ago. We see several of the HOT guys throughout and most of the HOT women. It is nice to see them in a fun and festive time instead of in times of stress and turmoil.

I have since listened to the audiobook. Melissa Moran is a new narrator for me but she did a good job with Kat. I think it's hard to have a Russian-American accent. And since she has traveled all over the world, it's even harder. Logan played a good, anxious Mendez.

Wonderful Christmas story

Absolutely love Mendez and Kat. This Christmas story is one of my favorites and comes with the best of Christmas surprises.

Lynn Raye Harris does such an incredible job in the selection of Narrators for each of her books, and Logan Mcllister and Melissa Moran do an incredible job of bringing this story to life.

This is a short sweet listen and a wonderful story. Highly recommend!!!

Great Holiday Story!

Revisiting Mendes and Cat and their family was so much fun! This was a short and sweet story that still had excitement. We also got to reconnect with this amazing couple and of course the rest of the HOT family. Ian was there to lend a hand, too. This was a great novella to put you in the holiday spirit!

The narrators did a great job.

A Hot Christmas Miracle

This was a great story about John Viper Menedez and Kat after a long time, separated through
manipulation of them through people up to no good.

John and Kat finally get their Happily Ever After, along with their bundle of joy and other wonderful surprises.

You will have to read the book to find out what happens.

HOT Christmas miracles

Mendez and Kat get more of a Christmas miracle than they bargained for in this short story. I loved the outcome of this story...but to not spoil anything I won't say much more...but a must read for anyone who loves the HOT books. And the narration was pretty good too.
