I really like it when an author has characters from one story show up in another, even if they are only peripheral to the story. Most of A.A. Nemo's stories are like that, but not always with the same cast.
"A Christmas Wish" shares characters with two other stories. It is highly recommended that “Heart Condition” be read before reading this story. Reading “Concordia” would be helpful, but not really necessary (even though it's a great story).
Dr. William Fitzhugh ("Fitz") Jameson is a widower with twin teenage daughters. Cassandra Wallace is a young attorney. Even though they both live in Chicago, they meet briefly in a London hotel when Fitz helps Cassandra out of a tight spot.
Fitz pulls a couple strings and helps get Cassandra a position with a better law firm, but can't get her out of his mind despite thinking she is too young for him. Likewise, Cassandra can't get Fitz out of HER mind, but because of a small prank, she has no idea who he really is. A good deal of the story has the two living their lives while obsessing about each other.
They finally come face to face again at a Christmas party. The rest of the story will appeal to anybody with a romantic bone in their body (me included). This is another story that stays in my permanent collection.
