Publisher's 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 Very Merry Christmas

It's a very Merry Christmas in the Mendez household. Not only is their Christmas becoming brighter with the expected arrival of their daughter, but Ian Black has a Christmas present for them too. If Ian Black is involved, you know things are about get interesting.

I just loved this book. The miracle of birth is so precious and getting their supposedly dead son back is an even better one. 😍

Loved This Story!

Let me start by saying Logan McAllister(new to me narrator) did an absolutely wonderful job as "Viper" Mendez. As always Melissa Moran is a joy to listen to. Below is my review of this story.

This story was just what we needed. A follow up with "Viper" aka Mendez and Kat. I loved the story line of this book. The Hot Christmas Miracle that they get is great. There is just enough mystery and intrigue as well as steamy hot passion between Mendez and Kat. I liked how we get to meet up with some of the members of Hot as well. At times I found myself tearing up at the touching and heartfelt scenes in the story. And of course it's always fun to read the banter between Mendez and our favorite leader of the mercenary group known as the bandits. I thoroughly enjoyed this latest addition from page one to the very end. Outstanding HEA!

Second Chances and Miracles!!

John “Viper” Mendez is happily married and expecting a child with the woman he was told had died years ago. Kat is enjoying the decorating and the cookie baking, as this is her happiest Christmas ever.

A lovely vignette of the team enjoying the season, and the upcoming arrival. Still some intrigue and surprises to be found here.

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.

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.
