Home for Christmas by Melissa McClone
$2.99 - Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon...the smells of Christmas. The smells of home.

Rachel Murphy longs for home and family. Since childhood, she's dreamed of owning her own pastry shop, but after being burned by a celebrity chef and losing her lease in Arizona, Rachel's spending the holidays with her brother in Montana. To keep her dream alive, she's creating custom gingerbread houses and selling them around town. All she needs is a bigger kitchen...and to stay away from her brother's handsome boss.

Former venture capitalist Nate Vaughn has embraced his inner cowboy and now runs a successful dude ranch where Rachel's brother works. Nate's commercial kitchen is perfect for Rachel's baking needs, and seeing the cute blonde's business acumen, Nate knows she'd be the perfect partner for a new business. When he makes her an offer she can't refuse, he discovers he's interested in more than her gingerbread.

While Nate could make her dreams come true, Rachel's heart, as well as her head, tells her mixing business with anything else could be a recipe for disaster. Should she return to Arizona, and leave Nate and her new eager-for-more customers behind? Or can Nate convince her that, here with him in the mountains of Montana, she's already home? For Christmas...forever.


Mistletoe Wedding by Melissa McClone
$2.99 - Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Event planner at the Bar V5 Dude Ranch, Meg Redstone is dreaming of a white Christmas with twinkling lights, sparkly decorations and strategically placed mistletoe. She loves making dreams come true for others, whether planning a holiday wedding or giving her young daughter the best Christmas ever.

Ranch foreman Tyler Murphy loves the holidays, but his newest employee has taken over his barn with her over-the-top decorations. He admires Meg’s desire to give her daughter the perfect Christmas while planning a winter wonderland wedding, but he wants to show her that a Montana Christmas is more than glitter and lights.

After raising his younger sister, an instant family is not on Ty's Christmas wish list. But he finds himself falling hard for the single mom and her little girl. Meg, however, is not interested in a romance with a cowboy like Ty, or any man. Getting her under the mistletoe is going to take a Christmas miracle . . . or a little help from Santa. 


Family & Fortune by Tracy Ellen

Hello Readers! If you are new to The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod ongoing series, read the first book, A Date with Fate for FREE.

Prepare for laughter, sighs, tears, and shocking surprises in Family & Fortune, Volume V in the dangerously delicious ongoing series, The Adventures of Anabel Axelrod.

Floating on drama-free air, Anabel and Luke are reveling in their time spent together like a normal couple over the holidays before the Las Vegas weddings. But their sensual idyll can’t last forever, especially when contrary to all the promises made in the ads, what happens in Vegas starts in Northfield. As the family weddings draw nearer, so does trouble. Anabel has to be on her toes like never before when confronted with a blackmailing ex-cousin, troubling behavior from her niece, strangers asking strange questions, an irritatingly consistent foretelling of her future, wedding havoc in the family, Vegas gangstas, jealous girlfriends, and a seriously freaky fan boy who may be more bite than bark.

If Anabel doesn't play her tarot cards right, not even the talented Mr. Tricky can alter the fortune destined to take her breath away--for good!
