Marrying Miss Kringle: Lux by Lucy McConnell

A wedding should have solved the North Pole’s energy crisis; however, Lux Kringle soon realizes that it’s going to take more than one wedding to feed Christmas Magic. All the Kringle sisters must find true love or the magic will die forever. 

But, there’s a snag. If they get married too quickly, they’ll flood the system with too much magic and fry the electrical system which powers everything from the toy making machines to the candy ovens. What the Kringle’s need, is a substation and they need it before Christmas Eve. 

A normal substation takes two years to build and Lux has 365 days. The one man on the planet with the know-how, the education, and the time to help her finish the substation in time, is also the one man who sends sparks through Lux’s heart and surges through the power system. 

If Lux kisses Matthew Quik—again!—she could blow up Santa’s workshop before she has a chance to save it.

It was hoped by all the Kringles that Ginger and Joseph’s marriage would solve the problems that have been experienced with Christmas Magic lately.  It’s a start but it’s not the entire solution.  For Santa has other daughters to find husbands, and all that power invoked by their romantic encounters will blow the North Pole operations sky high.  Lux has to come up with a solution, and she has… sorta kinda.  She needs the help of one man who, considering how their one kiss sparked things up, probably isn’t the man she should be wanting to spend time with for this particular problem.  But tell that to her heart, and that organ is convincing her brain to take the chance – now she simply has to get Matthew to agree to help build the substation, and that is not going to be easy.

Marrying Miss Kringle: Lux is a funny, tender, magical adventure into the sparkles of Christmas Magic and the sparks of human love.  Both are pretty powerful things.  We met Quik (Matthew) in the previous story and it would be safe to assume that he is a wild, mountain man who avoids people like the plague.  Well, we should know by now not to make assumptions.  There is a very good reason that Matthew is hiding out in the wilds surrounding the small town of Clearview, Alaska.  He’s hiding for his life.  Matthew is far from the loner we met, he’s a top class engineer with super intelligent capabilities – and  he is exactly what Lux needs, in more ways than one.

Lux and Matthew’s romance is rocky indeed.  Matthew makes so many blunders – I mean, when you can make Santa fume that’s something.  What Matthew doesn’t realize is that his brushing off of anything Christmas Magical, including Lux and her abilities, he’s wounding her deeply – and setting himself up for heartache.  It will take some magic called love to solve this couple’s problem – then they have to work on the substation.

I had such fun with this story.  If you love Santa romances then this is a story you will enjoy.  Just enough romance, a sprinkling of magic and a satisfying story.  If you haven’t picked up the first story then I’d recommend Marrying Miss Kringle: Ginger as well.
