CHRISTMAS HOMECOMING * Fern Michaels

CHRISTMAS IN BLUE HOLLOW FALLS * Donna Kauffman
Attorney Moira Brogan expects her brother’s Christmas wedding to be a peaceful affair.

Still nursing a broken heart, the last thing she wants is a new romance. But Hudson has other ideas . . .
HOLIDAY HOMERUN * Priscilla Oliveras
Event planner Julia Louisa Fernandez dreams of a life in Chicago. But her family in Puerto Rico expects her to take over the catering business.

Christmas is coming! What’s underneath your tree?
Making Waves – Donna Kauffman
“Burke Morgan is aghast when his friend, first mate, and cook, Dorsey Apolo, tells him that he won’t be sailing with Burke on his maiden voyage. Dorsey has always had itchy feet, but Burke expected him to at least stay with him on his first charter as captain and owner of the boat. The guests certainly won’t enjoy eating hot dogs for the next two weeks at the price they paid. But not to fear, Dorsey has talked his granddaughter, a chef, into taking his place. When Burke gets a look at Kamala, he knows the kitchen won’t be the only place where something is cooking on this voyage.
Add one gorgeous captain, one sexy chef, and a cruise through the Caribbean and you have a wonderful recipe for love and romance in Making Waves . Get the fans ready. The tropical sun is not the only thing generating heat in this story.”
Let it Snow – Nancy Warren
“There’s nothing like a near death experience to make you sit up and take notice of life. Weather girl Marisa Langley is upbeat and perky as she reports the wintry conditions, even though she’s freezing to death in her thin coat and gloves in the middle of a blizzard on top of the WLPX station building. When the electricity goes off and the roof door automatically locks, Marisa is not too happy about being trapped with a cameraman who hates her. Or does he?
Hmm…winter’s coming but the nights are getting warmer as Marisa and Rob make their Christmas wishes under the stars. Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow …”
You, Actually – Erin McCarthy
“Josh Black and Cassidy St. George have been best friends forever. They’ve always spent Christmas Eve together, and although this year is no different, something has changed between them. Cassidy has been reading Josh’s nationally syndicated cartoon strip, which usually parallels his life. She is heartbroken because the strip indicates Josh is in love, and Cassidy, who has been in love with him for years, is afraid to lose him. If this is the last Christmas they will spend together, Cassidy intends to make it one to remember.
Tight jeans, a game of twister, an attack reindeer, and Christmas panties all work together to make sure this is one holiday neither Cassidy or Josh will ever forget. Christmas wishes really do come true in You, Actually.”
Undercover Claus – MaryJanice Davidson
“Corinne Bullwinkle (that’s right, just like the moose — laugh now and get it out of your system) can’t believe she’s stuck in a Santa suit ringing a Salvation Army bell as she watches out for a serial purse snatcher. The mayor has been up in arms about the crimes ever since his wife was victimized by the mugger. Now Corinne is stuck in the cold until he or she strikes again. Still, it’s not all bad. A handsome businessman walks by every day, and he definitely improves the scenery. When a patch of ice brings these two together, the sparks start to fly.
Scrooge, Moose, and Squirrel, and a Gucci-stealing thief come together in a hilarious tale of romance and fashion faux pas in Undercover Claus , one of my favorite stories in the anthology.”
Silver Bella – Lucy Monroe
“Bella Jackson is a model with a bad-girl reputation that lands her a lucrative deal as the cover model for Lexi Creations, a line of ultra sexy clothing. Unfortunately, as a twenty-six year old virgin, Bella’s image is totally undeserved. She’s worked so hard to get to the top of the business that relationships took a back seat. No man has ever turned her on enough for her to risk exposure…until now. Catching Jake Barton’s eyes as she walks down the runway sends a bolt of heat racing through Bella’s body. Has she found the man of her dreams?
Sexy and heartwarming, Silver Bella is a must read. Readers will immediately fall for the innocent but sassy model as she hopes Santa puts something really sweet in her Christmas stocking.”
Snow Day – Susanna Carr
“Karen Price has always felt like an outsider. Insisting on staying in the small town that was just one of the many stops in her nomadic family’s life, she has broken soundly with tradition by settling down. But that sense of home still eludes her, along with any sense of direction. Tyler Stevens, the man she had a crush on when they were both teenagers, has returned to town. Karen is determined to avoid him, especially after the fiasco of his last visit when, trying to surprise her boyfriend Max, Karen went into the wrong room and was discovered naked in Tyler’s bed by all of their friends, including Max. When another wrong turn puts Karen in Tyler’s path and his bed once again, she has to ask herself what her personal compass is trying to tell her.
A thoroughly engaging look at the search for a home and the realization that home is not necessarily a physical structure but a place where love lives. Snow Day is a wonderful ending to an uplifting anthology.”
