Be Mine This Christmas Night by L.A. Sartor


Amazon Barnes & Noble | iBooks | Kobo

This is the #1 bestselling book that started the Star Light ~ Star Bright series.

The lit star on Boulder’s Flagstaff Mountain is real. It’s been lit at Christmas since I was a young child.

      This story came about one snowy night as I was sitting in my office watching the snow fall and talking to my mother on the phone, telling her how much I still looked forward to seeing the star every season.

      She told me a story about an incident at a neighborhood party where a man was grousing about the star and how it was too Christian to be used. Mom looked at him and said that she never thought about it being particularly religious in tone, but more a symbol of hope and light.

      Thus, my story was born. Annie lives in approximately the same distance from the star that I do, and the same proximity to Chautauqua Park. Guess what, I have the tall Linden tree in my front yard!

      The series happened when I had quite a few readers contact me and tell me they wanted more from the characters.

      Incredibly exciting stuff for an author to hear. I hope you enjoy this book that started it all.

Christmas is the perfect season to fall in love and find a family. Unless you’re hiding a secret.

Annie Hamilton, author of a beloved children’s series, is about the flip the switch on her home’s annual Christmas light show when the sight of a lone boy among the crowd reminds her of what she wants most. A family of her own. But after Annie’s secret has already caused a groom to flee, she knows that wish is only a dream.

Cole Evans may be a brilliant scientist, but raising two sons as a widower is beyond his expertise. When Cole moves next door to his youngest son’s all-time-favorite author, she becomes another complication, albeit a pretty one. But the boys’ beloved uncle doesn’t like Annie and makes no attempt to hide his distaste from anyone, including them, and creating an impossible choice for Cole, as choosing Annie means cutting ties to his late wife’s brother and hurting the boys.

Can a Christmas star bring Annie and Cole a beacon of hope during this magical season?

Be Mine This Christmas Night is the first book in the Star Light ~ Star Bright series set in the charming town of Boulder, Colorado. If you like holiday romances filled with characters facing what they believe to be impossible hurdles, in a series where characters make repeat appearances, then this book is the place to start.

About L.A. Sartor

I started writing as a child, really. A few things happened on the way to becoming a published author … specifically, a junior high school teacher who told me I couldn’t write because I didn’t want to study … urk … grammar.

That English teacher stopped my writing for years. But the muse couldn’t be denied, and eventually I wrote, a lot, some of it award winning. However, I wasn’t really making a career from any of this.

My husband told me repeatedly that independent publishing was becoming a valid way to publish a novel. I didn’t believe him even after he showed me several Wall Street Journal articles. I thought indie meant vanity press. 

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I started pursuing this direction seriously, hit the keyboard, learned a litany of new things and published my first novel. My second book became a bestseller, and I’m absolutely on the right course in my life. Email me at Leslie@LeslieSartor.com. I’d love to hear from you.

I wish you all a happy holiday season.

    Happy Holidays to all,
