A CHRISTINE FEEHAN HOLIDAY COLLECTION

by Christine Feehan

After the Music

Terrified by mysterious threats, Jessica Fitzpatrick takes her twin wards to the island mansion of their estranged father, Dillon Wentworth, a famous musician who shut out the world after a fire claimed his wife's life and left him disfigured. With Christmas approaching, the spark between Dillon and Jessica might light the future, but the evil machinations of those who share his late wife's love of the occult may plunge the family into darkness -- unless a Christmas miracle occurs. . . .

The Twilight Before Christmas

Bestselling novelist Kate Drake, one of seven sisters with amazing powers of witchcraft, wants to open a bookstore in a charming but run-down mill in her California hometown. Decorated former U.S. Army Ranger Matt Granite, now a contractor, doesn't mind helping -- and getting closer to Kate. But when an earthquake exposes a crypt in the mill's foundation, a centuries-old evil threatens to destroy both Christmas and the gift of soul-searing passion Kate's hometown hero wants her to keep forever. . . .

Rocky Mountain Miracle

When Cole Steele, a womanizer rumored to have killed his father, meets Maia Armstrong, a veterinarian rumored to practice magic, the sparks that fly could melt all the snow on his Wyoming ranch. And when an injured horse brings them together, Cole can't help but believe that Maia casts spells on animals and men. What else could explain the burning passion he feels for her and the thawing of his heart around the holidays?

Mysterious and magical, like the holiday itself, these novellas reveal Christine Feehan to be a writer of extraordinary gifts.

A winning story that will have you believing in the magic of Christmas all over again!

 

Chris Kringle is once again, after his son, Christopher, to take over the family business…that of being Santa Claus. But Christopher cannot do that without a missus by his side; only Christopher has other plans for his life. His life is being a doctor and he loves his life just the way it is. He wants to help people by healing them, not pushing presents.
 

Christopher has his whole life planned out and things are going smoothly until a motorcycle accident victim is brought in late one night and turns his merry little world up side down, faster than you can say, “jingle bells”.

 

Candi Kane has left home to find herself, traveling on her motorcycle to where she really does not know, she just needs to get away and think. No sooner does she decide to stop in the small town of Wadeville, than a car pulls out in front of her and she lays down her motorcycle and ends up in the care of one very handsome doctor--Doctor Christopher Kringle.

 
During the holidays, these two will find out the true meaning of giving, sharing and the magic of Christmas in the most unusual of ways. This will be the coolest and most erotic Christmas ever!

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT

by Rebecca Anderson

Diana Christmas grew up hearing her jovial grandfather, Sparky, talk about the family’s indomitable “Christmas spirit.” She assumed he meant a general attitude of humor and determination. When she inherits Christmas House, however, the family’s rambling turn-of-the century home high on a seaside cliff in North California, she discovers Sparky might have been talking about more than attitude when he referred to Christmas spirit...

Christmas House has a ghost! And not your run-of-the-mill specter moving furniture and rattling chains. This earthbound spirit, Alex White, is playful, handsome, and very sexy.

Alex haunts Diana’s days...and eventually her nights, causing her serious concern about her sanity. After all, love with a ghost is a dead-end street.

Enter Josh Marley, a wealthy, charming, flesh-and-blood man who wants to marry Diana. Is Josh the answer to her prayers and the means to the life she’s always wanted? The moment she accepts Josh’s proposal, Alex disappears. Will Diana marry Josh and join the living? Or will she find a way to reunite with her Christmas Spirit?

CHRISTMAS LETTERS

by Debbie Macomber

Katherine O'Connor often spends her days at a cozy cafe on Blossom Street in Seattle -- where she writes Christmas letters for other people. She's good at making their everyday lives sound more interesting. More humorous. More dramatic.

But for Dr. Wynn Jeffries, who also frequents the cafe, Christmas means lies and deception. In fact, the renowned child psychologist recommends that parents "Bury Santa Under the Sleigh." Katherine, however, feels that his parenting philosophy is one big mistake -- at least, based on her four-year-old twin nieces, who are being raised according to his "Free Child" methods.

She argues with Wynn about his theories, while he argues that her letters are nothing but lies. They disagree about practically everything -- and yet, somehow, they don't really want to stop arguing.

As the days -- and nights -- move closer to Christmas, Katherine and Wynn both discover that love means accepting your differences. And Christmas is about the things you share . .

SUGAR AND SPICE

by Fern Michaels, Joanne Fluke, Beverly Barton, Shirley Jump

 

Sweet is the word for this anthology from four top Kensington writers. Barton's contribution, about two strangers snowed in after a Tennessee storm, is the steamy standout. Michaels creates a paean to childhood disappointment, but the romance gets short shrift. Fluke's near-innocent tale of two teachers is clunky, but the dessert recipes make up for it. Jump's office romance gives the collection a kick, with fiery writing. (Nov.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS
Though the weather outside is frightful, the hunky men are SO delightful. And these three ladies are about to discover that Christmas is not only the most wonderful time of the year . . . but also the sexiest . . .

Do You Hear What I Hear, Lori Foster

The holiday season heats up when Sergeant Osbourne Decker is asked to watch over pet psychic Marci Churchill. Sure, the woman is nutty, but she’s also a knockout. And when she’s accused of stealing a donkey from the local nativity scene, he can’t stop thinking about frisking her . . .

Bah Humbug, Baby, Gemma Bruce

The last thing ad exec Allison Newberry wants this year is to spend the holidays with her former flame, the unreliable-but-sexier-than-hell photojournalist Lee Simonson. Hang stockings? She’d rather hang him. But when a blizzard hits their ski lodge, there seems to be only one way to keep warm . . .

By Firelight, Janice Maynard

But when she gets stranded with mountain man Grant Monroe in his secluded cabin, she feels her Christmas spirit -- and her temperature -- start to rise. Grant has a tantalizing secret, and what he asks Maddy to do by firelight sparks a Christmas adventure she’ll never forget . .

BLUE CHRISTMAS

by Mary Kay Andrews

 

It's the week before Christmas, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley is in a frenzy to garnish her shop for the Savannah historical district decorating contest, which she intends to win. But suddenly things start to go missing from her display, and there seems to be a mysterious midnight visitor to her shop.

Still, Weezie has high hopes for the holiday-maybe in the form of an engagement ring from her chef boyfriend. But Daniel, always moody at the holidays, seems more distant than usual. Throw in Weezie's decidedly odd family, a 1950s Christmas-tree pin, and even a little help from the King himself (Elvis, that is), and maybe there will be a pocketful of miracles for Weezie this Christmas Eve.

This is a time for families, for togetherness, for memories. On Christmas Eve, Maryanne and Nolan Adams tell their kids the story they most want to hear--how Mom and Dad met and fell in love. It all started when they were reporters on rival Seattle papers...and next thing you know, Here Comes Trouble!


Christmas is also a time for...fruitcake. Rookie reporter Emma Collins hates fruitcake; for that matter, she hates Christmas, too. When three Washington State women are finalists in a national fruitcake contest, the story is assigned to her. That's bad enough. It gets worse when she has to fly in a small plane (scary!) with a smart-aleck pilot named Oliver Hamilton (sexy!) and his scruffy dog (cute!). In the end she meets three wise women, falls in love and learns There's Something About Christmas.

Ten years ago Dixie Bonner was the favorite wild child of a powerful Texas oilman. But after uncovering a dark family secret that cast suspicion on everyone close to her, she took off for a new life and never looked back.

Chance Walker was the cool-eyed cowboy hired to bring her home by Christmas. But after catching her, he couldn't decide if she was a blackmailer or a victim. Was he tempted to protect her because she told the truth—or was he falling for her? Holed up in a remote Montana cabin with the bad guys closing in, two stubborn souls needed to trust each other if they hoped to survive the season.

CHRISTMAS IN HAWTHORN BAY

by Kathleen O'Brien

 

Mayor Nora Carson knows that council's plan to bulldoze the Killian family's mansion won't just stir up bad blood—it will attract the last person on earth she wants to see: Jack Killian. Run out of town when they were high school sweethearts, the big city lawyer is back to protect his turf—but what he'll find is Nora's eleven-year-old secret.

Her worst nightmare is that he'll put two and two together and start asking questions. But there's no way she can tell him how she came to be a single mother. Or why her son has the Killians' blue eyes and curly black hair...
