Borrowing Christmas by Kat Bellemore

(Borrowing Amor Book One)

Love is a nuisance when all you want is to do is disappear.

Two weeks before Christmas, Katie is kicked out of her apartment. Again. Rather than wander the streets and continue to work for a dirty cop, she decides to leave the city and disappear for good. But her car breaks down in a New Mexico town, and everything is threatened when she falls for the charming mayor.

Sam Freedman is the first bachelor mayor of Amor. After convincing the locals that having a mayor without family responsibilities means he can dedicate all his time to the community, townspeople watch his every move. Then Katie Andersen shows up. Against Sam’s better judgement, he hires her to replace his event coordinator. Now he can barely think straight, let alone run a town.

In the midst of half-truths and outright lies, Katie and Sam desperately search for the place where honesty and trust lead to love. Can they find it before the past catches up with them?



I was honoured to read this book prior to publication following a request from the author, Kat Bellemore.  Borrowing Christmas is a beautiful clean romance set in a small town in New Mexico.

The author has penned a short heart-warming and uplifting tale which gets right to the heart of the story quickly and you can feel yourself simply whipped up and taken on a winter wonderland tale of love and romance.

Brilliant book which I read in an afternoon – on the sofa with a few cups of tea and a nice fluffy blanket (and my dog!). Recommended reading for the festive season approaching.

Thank you to Zoe Haslie of for putting me in touch with Kat Bellemore where I was given the opportunity to read and review this novel prior to publication.

Kat Bellemore is the author of the Borrowing Amor clean romance series. Deciding to have New Mexico as the setting for the series was an easy choice, considering its amazing sunsets, blue skies and tasty green chili.  That, and she currently lives there with her husband and two cute kids. They hope to one day add a dog to the family, but for now, the native animals of the desert will have to do. Though, Kat wouldn’t mind ridding the world of scorpions and centipedes. They’re just mean.
