About the Book:

Fall in love this holiday season with this heartwarming story about finding romance, the magic of Christmas, and the importance of family…
Children’s bookstore owner Addie Mayberry believes in the magic of Christmas. Or at least, she used to. So when a young customer needs some seasonal optimism, Addie sets out to give the vulnerable, heartbroken little girl the best Christmas ever. Which means helping the hottest man in Shadow Creek, Bella’s surgeon father, find his holiday spirit. Addie’s up to the challenge, but between tree decorating and late night talks, she realizes she’s starting to fall hard for the one man she definitely shouldn’t.
Drew Barrett drastically changed his fast-paced life when he moved back to Shadow Creek, but it was all worth it to give his daughter a better life. He wasn’t exactly winning dad-of-the-year awards before, so he’s determined to make it up to Bella. And with Addie’s help, he’s slowly repairing his relationship with his daughter. The last thing he wants is to fall in love, since that road only leads to pain, but he can’t stop thinking about Addie. Not only is she gorgeous, sweet, and great with Bella, she fills something in him he never knew was missing. But Addie wants forever, which is more than Drew can offer…

BLITZ! IN HER SPACE by Amie Knight

BLITZ! IN HER SPACE by Amie Knight

In Her Space, the stunning conclusion to the Stars Duet by Amie Knight is LIVE!

I was reunited with Livingston Montgomery in the broad sunshine of a Carolina morning, right where she belonged; in the light.

It’d been too long since I’d seen her face.

She had changed, but so had I.

I was Adam Nova, reformed bad boy. Now, successful business man.

I had it all, except for the one person I’d always wanted, and now I was back to claim her.

She was living in the shadows, just a shell of the former girl I knew.

But it didn’t matter that she tried to hide from me in the dark.

I’d follow her into the deepest depths of hell.

I just wanted to be In Her Space.

About the Book:

The weather forecasters said the snowstorm would miss the eastern seaboard. They were wrong. When Ally Henderson’s flight from Southern California to finally marry her fiancé in New York City on Christmas gets diverted to the tiny Midwestern town of Bethlehem, she’s desperate to get back in the air and to the Big Apple. But with all the airports closed, she’s forced to rely on Midwestern hospitality to wait out the storm.Living with a welcoming stranger is one way to spend a snowed-in Christmas, but when she meets the local diner owner, the kindhearted and surprisingly sexy Jake, sparks fly. Only, Ally’s a big-city girl with big-city dreams, and Jake will always be a Bethlehem boy.

Just do it, she thought. Kiss me. Why do you have to be such a gentleman when I really just want your lips on mine?

 

“Hey guys.” Ally looked over to see Tina standing on the edge of the porch, hugging her bathrobe tightly about her. Jake quickly stood up. A little too quickly, Ally decided.

 

“Oh hi,” Jake said. Terrible actor, Ally thought. He didn’t even try to play it off coolly. Ally wondered what would have happened if Tina hadn’t interrupted them. Curse my timing. Ally stood up on her own. Jake seemed too busy distancing himself from her to offer his hand.
“Hi sis,” Jake said. Ally noticed the curious smile on Tina’s face. It was clear that Jake’s sister knew full well she’d caught them in a compromising position.
“Hope I’m not interrupting anything,” Tina said.
“Oh, no!” Jake said much too quickly. “We were just finishing up Snowman Bob.” Ally was amused as Jake gestured to the snowman as if that might distract his sister from what she’d seen.

 

“Well, welcome back, Snowman Bob,” Tina said. “He looks especially robust this year. I’m sure that was Ally’s doing.”

 

“Yes,” Jake said. “She was a big help. Right, Ally?”

 

“I guess so,” Ally said. “I just packed on snow. Not a lot of skill involved.” She exchanged a furtive glance with Tina, and it was as if they could read each other’s minds. Jake’s acting funny, huh?

 

“Maddie’s going to be so excited,” Tina said. “She’s been jabbering about it for days. Kinda sad, though. Once she morphs into a poopy teenager, she’ll be too cool for Snowman Bob.”

 

“I’m sure I’ll be ready to retire him by then,” Jake said.

 

“So, Jake. I hear you’re going to have competition at the Great Christmas Cookie Bake-off tomorrow night,” Tina said. “Mom says Ally and Noel have an unbeatably delicious cookie entry.”

 

Jake shot a look at Ally. “I’m not really expecting competition.”

 

Ally gave him a playful punch on the arm. “You know what they say. An arrogant bug is a cocky roach.”

 

“Oh wow,” Jake said. “Now I’m an insect. Very nice, yoga lady.”

 

Ally looked at Tina. “Tina, is your brother always this impossible to deal with?”

 

“Pretty much,” Tina said.

 

“Well,” Ally said, “just so you know, Noel and I are in this to win.”

 

“Be warned, Ally,” Tina said. “Jake’s a pretty fair cookie-baker.”

 

“Not afraid at all,” Ally said. “We welcome the competition. With Peggy in our corner, we’re unbeatable.”

 

“Wow,” Jake said. “Can’t believe my own mother’s helping the enemy.” He shook his head in mock dismay. “All right then. I guess it’s on.”

 

“Yep,” Ally said. “On like Donkey Kong.”
“So, okay,” Tina said, “I’m freezing my bunions off, so I’m gonna go back inside.”

 

“Night,” Ally and Jake said in unison.
Tina turned back just before disappearing inside. “You can go back to your kiss now.”
After the door closed behind her, Ally and Jake exchanged a look. Ally relished the sheepish smile on his handsome face.

 

“Not sure what she’s talking about,” he said.

 

“No idea,” Ally said. The clock in the town hall tower started to peal.

 

“Well, I should get you back,” Jake said.

 

“Right,” Ally replied. “Don’t want to turn into a pumpkin. Night, Snowman Bob.”

GIVEAWAY! STRANDED IN THE WOODS
by Noelle Adams

A surprise snowstorm. A grumpy recluse. One very hot night. When the snow finally melts will Penny Holiday and Kent Matheson find their happy-ever-after or are they destined to remain friends? Contemporary Romance fans will love this charming holiday romance from New York Times Bestselling Author Noelle Adams!

A surprise snowstorm. A grumpy recluse. One very hot night.

 

When Penny Holiday gets stranded during a snowstorm, she has to seek refuge with Kent Matheson, a childhood friend who lives like a hermit and has never forgiven her family. Kent is everything she shouldn’t want, but feelings are awakened in his cabin in the woods that don’t disappear when the snow finally melts.

Excerpt:

 

“Oh, Kent.” Her voice was gentle, almost tender. “You know that’s not true, right?”

“What?”

“You can do relationships. You were friends with me for eighteen years, and you never let me down.”

For no good reason emotion caught in his throat at that. “Not eighteen years. We weren’t friends when you were in the cradle.”

“Pretty much. I remembered having that contest over who could draw the better dog when I was like four years old. We were friends for all those years. You can do relationships.”

“That’s only because I pulled away before I had a chance to mess our friendship up.”

“You can keep telling yourself that if you want, but I know it’s not true.”

She was so beautiful in the candlelight, with her eyes deep and her lashes thick and her lips curved sensuously that Kent had to fight a wave of arousal that almost matched the power of the clench in his heart.

“I think it is,” he said thickly.

“And I know it’s not. You’ve always been a good friend to me until you decided that you didn’t want to be.”

“I did want to be. I just didn’t want to mess it up. And don’t tell me I wouldn’t have eventually ruined it because I’m about to ruin whatever’s left between us right now.”

She blinked. “What do you mean?”

“I mean I’m about to kiss you, and what would that do to our friendship?”

He wished he was better at guarding his words, hiding his feelings, but he’d never been good at that like Scott and Phil were. He was almost as bad at it as Penny.

Penny’s voice was hoarse now. “You’re about to…”

“Kiss you.”

Her cheeks flushed in the flickering light, and she met his gaze in something like a challenge. “Then why don’t you?”

“Why don’t I what?”

“Kiss me. What the heck do you think we were talking about?”

“You want me to kiss you?”

“Why wouldn’t I?”

“Because we’re friends.”

“And that means I’ll never want to kiss you?”

He was breathless now for a different reason. Things were happening so fast he couldn’t keep up. “You want me to…”

“Kiss me.” She swallowed down the last of her hot chocolate. “If that’s what you want. If it’s no good, then we won’t do it again.”

He stared at her, breathing heavily until he couldn’t hold back anymore.

She was asking him to kiss her, and everything about her was kissable.

Kent was going to kiss her even if it was the worst thing he could do.
