I was only supposed to pretend to be Trent’s fake girlfriend for Thanksgiving. But I should have known better. Navigating the waters of festive family drama is never easy. Especially when your best friend’s father has cancer, and everyone wants to make his potentially last holiday season the best ever.
So here I am, on the arm of my gay best friend yet again, this time for Christmas. For a whole week I’ll be juggling matchmaking schemes, the attentions of his twin niece and nephew, and all the peppermint hot chocolate I can get my hands on. Good thing I love this family. Well, except for Trent’s twin brother. . .
He and his smug smile can choke on a Santa cookie for all I care. I am not letting anything—or anyone—mess up the Pruitt’s holiday season. Especially not Duncan, the ridiculously handsome former pro-hockey player who I swear knows Trent and I are faking it.
Full of festive fun, a full BIPOC cast, and cultural diversity, this double dose of fake dating rom-con shenanigans will have you craving hot chocolate, latkes, and hanging mistletoe everywhere you go.

"A delightful holiday romance with a diverse cast of characters and two fantastic love stories... and you will absolutely fall in love with Duncan and Trent's whole family. There is so much to love in this book and the author did an amazing job with it. Thoroughly recommend for a spicy holiday read!"
"I am typically more of a fantasy reader, but MMPK has me falling in love with contemporary romance. Cathrine has a real talent for writing real characters that make you feel every bit of love, happiness, uncertainty, concern and so much more."
"One of the highlights of MMPK is the unforced chemistry between the characters... you can feel how they fit together; how they love each other, and the sense of family of when they are all together."
"Loved this so much that I read it in one single sitting! I need the Pruitts to adopt me ASAP."
"Cathrine makes responsible rep look easy and feel so natural. Loved the exploration of holiday traditions beyond just Christmas and what it can look like in a family of mixed religions and cultures."
