Saturday Santa

In Saturday Santa a "Beast," scarred, ex-arms consultant Jack Ryker finds his "Beauty," Mari Lynch, at a small boutique mall in a Southern California beach town. Together they vanquish an enemy Jack has unleashed from the dangerous world of arms dealing and earn the merriest Christmas of their lives together. (Warning this story is heartwarming and humorous, but the hero’s past introduces some dark, definitely un-Hallmark elements.)


"Saturday Santa by Kate Moore is a contemporary romantic suspense story with a 'Beauty and the Beast' theme...I found this book intriguing. It is not my usual kind of story, but there was something about Jack that drew me in. ... I never thought imminent danger and mysterious men were my cup of tea, but Saturday Santa kept my attention throughout. It contains an alluring combination of danger, intrigue, and sexual attraction that keeps readers turning the pages. 4.5 Stars"--Novels Alive Review by Diane K. Peterson

"I could not put this one down. Kate Moore has crafted a compelling story filled with action, suspense, poignant moments, and heart-tugging romance that held me enthralled from start to finish. The story begins at a steady pace, ramping up gradually as Jack and Mari come to know one another then growing more intense as the life-or-death stakes of Jack's life become more immediate...and Mari is caught in the middle.

"Moore's character development, dialogue, and depth of emotion pulled me in, eliciting my emotional responses right along with the characters. The secondary storyline involving Mari's grandfather added another emotional layer that caused me to be even more invested in her character while the gradual unveiling of Jack's past as well as the effects of his experience overseas created a character who so deserved a happy ending."--The Romance Dish

"So much more than I expected from a new-to-me author in this suspense, mystery, and love story -- along with a bag of Santa's magic!"--Anne OK

"At a time of year intended for the best stories, Saturday Santa does it all...Great dialogue and wonderful images move the story quickly. Add in mystery, suspense, and the friction between Mari and Jack, and presto—we get a story of love prevailing over evil, and the happily ever after we all hope for."--Amazon review

"Saturday Santa is an unputdownable contemporary holiday romance you need to read. While there are parallels to one of my favorite fairy tales, it’s so much more than that. The hero is a wounded man who suffers from scars both mentally and physically. His body rebels against his simple commands while his brain moves at a rapid pace. The heroine is your average woman who has a big heart and is tired of the dating scene. Both have been hurt in the past but together, they navigate through their circumstances.

"The romance between these two is slow-paced but so satisfying. The writing is exceptional and one of the best books I’ve read this year. I can’t wait to read more from Kate Moore. If you’re looking for a holiday romance with depth, pick up Saturday Santa. If you like your holiday reads to contain some suspense, pick up Saturday Santa. If you want to be whisked away, you’ll want to read Saturday Santa. I can’t recommend this book enough!"--N.N. Light
