25 Books of Christmas – Mine For Christmas

On the tenth day of Christmas…

Mine for Christmas by J.S. Scott

Simon and Kara are back!

Kara Hudson has been married to her billionaire husband, Simon, for over two years, and she loves him even more desperately than she did when they first married. Unfortunately, there was a distance growing between the two of them, and the passion between them wasn’t flaring as red-hot as it used to burn. Was it possible that Simon wasn’t as crazy in love with her as he used to be, or did their problems go much deeper than that?

Simon Hudson loves his wife and his infant daughter so much it hurts. And he was getting tired of holding back his emotions from his worn-out, exhausted wife who had seen their baby girl through her first year and a half of life without complaint.

Will their differences and emotional distance tear the two of them apart? Or will a precious gift from Santa help them heal their misunderstandings and have the merriest Christmas they’ve ever had?

** Not suitable for children under 18 **

25 Books of Christmas – Video Vixen

On the ninth day of Christmas…

Video Vixen by Elaine Raco Chase

“Good girls finish last, Daniel, and I’ve always been at the head of the class.” That’s what Vixen Mallory would say, and Vikki Kirkland was saying it now — to Dan Falkner, ace reporter who’d come to do a story on the soap opera and the star that had taken the cable network and viewer-ship by storm.

Welcome to Sodom’s Crossing, just south of the equator — well actually downtown Manhattan! From her billboard in Times Square to her rare vertical photos in Playboy – the world was finding it easy to be Vixen-ized.

Vikki had sworn to her fellow cast mates on Always Tomorrow that she would protect their secrets by being the sexy, unscrupulous siren on-camera and off – to the hilt. Making sure that investigative reporter Dan Falkner would focus on the illusion rather than the sweet, shy woman Vikki really was.

There was just one problem — Vikki never imagined how easy it would be to enjoy being a vixen and take what she wanted. And she found she wanted Dan Falkner more than she had ever wanted any man.

About Elaine:

If you like sassy, laugh out loud, contemporary romances – some more explicit than others – you have found the right author!

Reviewers have called them: “cat & mouse” – “slowburn” – “hot and steamy” – “highly addicting” -“solid characters & lots of humor” – “amazing reads!”

I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren’t looking for a man – until the right one comes along!

And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don’t know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

I also write erotic mystery/thriller’s and the Agatha Christie nominated non-fiction “How to write the Amateur Detective Novel” which is in the FBI Forensic Library at Quantico.

On the fifth day of Christmas…

Tennessee Tinsel by Bethany Strobel

What’s not to love about a tender Tennessee Christmas tradition?

Jillian and her twin brother, along with her parents, love to spend the holidays in their favorite little Tennessee town in the mountains. But this year when her mom booked the cabin, she invited some extra guests and Jillian’s arch rival.

Jax McKay. The super sexy, wanna-be cowboy is home for the holidays from Montana. When Jillian’s mom invites her brothers best friend, Jax, and his family to their cabin, Jillian can’t believe her bad luck.

Making matters worse, Jillian and Jax are the only ones who make it to the cabin before the snow storm strikes. With no way of telling how long they’ll be stuck together, alone, Jillian fears they may come to blows.

Or will the new and disturbing feelings she finds herself denying for him be enough to squash their rivalry and land the cowboy a place in her heart?

Make a way for this witty and comical story to find a place in your heart this Christmas season!

Tennessee Tinsel

About Bethany:

Hello Lovely Friends,

I’m Author Bethany Strobel and I write New Adult Paranormal Steamy Romance, NA Contemporary Romance, and have recently started to dabble in YA Dystopian. My breakout series is The Destiny Series which consists of two published novels and one novella, and books four and five are scheduled for release in early 2018.
My contemporary series Country Roads Romance had its first release in November of this year and will continue to grow in 2018.

Speaking of growing, I grew up in the intense heat of the Florida sun and moved away to the North Georgia Mountains in my early teen years. Although the mountains were beautiful, I am happy to say that I have returned to my sunny birthplace and love spending days in the salt air and at the beach with my hubby and two children.

I went to school at Reinhardt College and majored in English, then worked in management for almost twenty years. My passion has always been writing, and I’ve been doing it since I was a young girl. My favorite assignments in school were always the ones where I got to tell a story, and I made more than one teacher laugh with my silly antics. I fall in love with each and every one of my characters and my hope is that I’ve woven them so beautifully that you will too.

Happy Reading, xoxo

25 Books of Christmas – The Christmas Bargain

On the fourth day of Christmas…

The Christmas Bargain by Shanna Hatfield

One Old West Cinderella discovers Prince Charming is a. . . Cowboy?

The death of her mother left Philamena Booth grieving and at the mercy of her drunken father. After spending more than a decade held captive on their run-down farm, she’s left speechless when her father strikes a bargain to settle a long overdue debt. In lieu of payment, a handsome cowboy agrees to take Philamena. Mortified yet relieved to leave the farm, she finds herself married to the charismatic, caring man.

Luke Granger might own Hardman’s bank and the fanciest house in the Eastern Oregon town, but he’d much rather be outside riding his horses or wrangling his herd of cattle than keeping his account books straight. In a strange, unsettling turn of events, he finds himself accepting a farmer’s daughter instead of money to cover a loan. If the man hadn’t threatened to sell her to the saloon owner, Luke might have refused. He has no idea what to do with the beautiful Filly or their marriage of convenience, but he’s about to get far more than he bargained for.

Full of Victorian and western charm, The Christmas Bargain is a sweet holiday romance filled with the spirit of the season.

Christmas Bargain

About Shanna:

After spending her formative years on a farm in Eastern Oregon, hopeless romantic Shanna Hatfield turns her rural experiences into sweet historical and contemporary romances filled with sarcasm, humor, and hunky heroes.
When this USA Today bestselling author isn’t writing or covertly hiding decadent chocolate from the other occupants of her home, Shanna hangs out with her beloved husband, Captain Cavedweller.

25 Books of Christmas – In Christmas Falls

On the third day of Christmas…

In Christmas Falls by Melinda Curtis

Twelve unlucky years ago, rumors flew about Lexi and Kevin. And now? Well, not much has changed, except this time neither can run away. Not from Christmas Falls. And maybe . . . not from each other.

As a political strategist at Dunlop Bennet & Associates, Lexi Townsend’s career is going nowhere. She’s a cubical dweller writing speeches for freshmen senators in DC. But if she can hitch her career wagon to a rising political star, she’ll be on her way to a corner office in no time. When she’s offered a plum holiday assignment-an ideal candidate with deep pockets, someone who could make the leap from local to national politics-she starts to dream about that corner office.

Until she realizes her candidate is Kevin O’Malley, aka Kevin the Hottie, Kevin the Heartbreaker, Kevin the Coward, the same guy who shattered her high school reputation back home in Christmas Falls with a rumor. Assignment in hand, Lexi braces herself for the most difficult political race of her career–because this time it’s personal.

Rumor Has It

About Melinda:

Award winning, USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis writes the Harmony Valley series of sweet and emotional romances for Harlequin Heartwarming, and the sweet romantic comedy Bridesmaid series.
