Christmas Cupid by Ilsa Madden-Mills is now live!


From #1 Amazon Bestselling Author Ilsa Madden-Mills comes a brand new enemies to lovers holiday novella (40,000 words) about finding love in unexpected places.

Dear Sneaky Santa

I’d like to have a word about your sense of humor. Was it really necessary to stick me, a professional hockey player nursing an injury and avoiding the media, in an isolated cabin with a bratty, boot-designing princess who seems to have made it her mission to despise me? I mean, come on, what did I ever do to you?

And let’s talk about our first encounter. Was it your intention for her to barge in on me while I was enjoying a soak in the tub? It wasn’t exactly my finest moment, and I’m sure she didn’t appreciate the view of my massive body floundering around as I tried to grab a towel.

Now, I’m stuck with her, thanks to a mutual acquaintance, in the middle of a snow blizzard, navigating through bear attacks, sketchy neighbors, and whole lot of tension. I had plans, Santa, plans to escape to Cabo and forget about the world, not to be trapped with a woman who thinks I’m unworthy of her time just because she can’t stand hockey players.
Oh, and speaking of our delightful Iris, she’s stingier with her food than Scrooge was with his pennies! I’m not asking for a feast, but a guy’s got to eat! And could you possibly turn her yippy dog into a reindeer or something? It would certainly add to the Christmas spirit and save my eardrums.

I’m trying to rediscover the meaning of Christmas, and you throw me into this chaos? Is this some kind of test, or are you just having a jolly laugh up there in the North Pole?

So here’s my Christmas wish, Santa: sprinkle a bit of your magic and either get me out of here or be a Cupid and ignite a fiery, undeniable passion between us, because right now, this scenario is frostier than a snowman.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Christmas Cupid is a Christmas novella by Ilsa Madden Mills which had me laughing out loud, swooning and smiling a lot. It’s an enemies-to-lover, close proximity holiday story. Some of my favorite tropes! Kyler and Iris are stuck in the mountains, in a cabin, in the snow. They do not like each other and it’s not a secret. Over the course of the few days they are there, they warm up to each other as the temperature outside drops. Before they know it, they are decorating, knitting, cooking and really enjoying each other’s company. Once the lust-filled tension takes over, and they give in to their attraction, will they regret it in the morning. Or will they realize they have more in common than they thought and they are actually really great together? Oh boy! I really enjoyed this story. Kyler is sexy and freaking hilarious and Iris is nutty and funny. Together they had me laughing and cheering for them! Wouldn’t mind seeing them again, wink, wink!



Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Christmas Cupid is Ilsa Madden-Mills newest novella. Christmas with a sprinkle of Valentine’s  thrown in. It’s a such a fun story. 
Iris just needed a few days of quiet with her dog. Maybe some crafting, reading, and hot tubing too. It’s been a hard year and some time alone being spending Christmas with her brother and mother might be just want she needed even if it meant that her brother was right about it. What she didn’t expect was to walk into the cabin and see a very naked man in the bath tub. 
Kyler thought he was going to be alone nursing his injury and drinking his troubles away. Apparently not, now he was stuck with a princess and her little dog too. A princess who doesn’t want him there. Too bad a blizzard didn’t get that message…
You guys don’t want to miss this one! It’s so much fun, flirty, and and will get you in the holiday spirit. It’s a novella that packs a punch!
