How fast this year has flown! Here we are in Christmas week, my favorite time of year. Our youngest daughter and I looked at Christmas lights last night. We do this every year. There’s a neighborhood not that far from us that has an amazing display. So many carloads of people come to enjoy the lights that police are necessary to regulate traffic. This is only one of the areas where we look at lights, but it’s the most elaborate. Do you enjoy looking at lights? Do you have a lot of lights at your home?

I don’t need that sort of event to put me in the Christmas spirit. I read Christmas books and watch Christmas movies all year because I enjoy them so much. If you love reading Christmas stories, I have a selection for only 99¢ each!

Two are contemporary and the others are western historical romances. Each is a sweet romance novella.

ANGEL FOR CHRISTMAS Suzi Stephens’ late father left her with a huge balloon note due by the end of the year. She only has a month to raise the funds or the orphanage she now manages will face foreclosure and the children displaced. She needs a hero to help. New employee Jake Porter surprises her with his resourcefulness. But he has a secret that puts their budding relationship in jeopardy.

HOLIDAY HEARTS Laura is a compassionate and efficient woman who works for an ad agency. When she sees an older woman fall on the icy sidewalk, she comes to her aid. Her kindness leads her to her dream relationship with her boss—but office gossip can ruin her career and the relationship.

MISTLETOE MISTAKE Shannon Callahan worked hard to become a doctor, but she works in vain to be accepted and her skill respected. She hopes taking a job in a small western town will mean she is accepted.

STONE MOUNTAIN CHRISTMAS – Celia wants to restore the town’s Christmas spirit after an attack of renegades burns the church and leaves townspeople dejected. Eduardo Montoya is determined to help the lovely young widow.

WINTER WISH Serena Winters wishes at the town’s wishing well. When the wish comes true, secrets are revealed that rip apart her family.  

There you have a selection sure to bring you hours of enjoyment and keep you looking forward to Christmas.

Three Coins

by Kimberly Sullivan

Genre: Women's Fiction, Romance

One Eternal City. Three women. Three wishes. Three coins.

Emma, an American expat living in Rome for twenty years, can’t count on her ex-husband to help out with the kids when things get tough. Dario Rinaldi, famed plastic surgeon to the stars, is too busy gallivanting around Europe with young women to take an interest in his family.

Beautiful Tiffany, born and bred in Iowa, is desperate to get a spot as a dancer on an Italian television show. But is she willing to do whatever it takes to make her dreams of TV stardom come true?

Annarita, from an Italian-American family in Yonkers, teaches English to over-privileged Italians and regularly has her heart trampled by boyfriends all wrong for her. As her mother is always quick to point out, nothing has gone right for her since she moved to Italy. And she isn’t getting any younger, either.

Emma, Tiffany and Annarita all meet up by chance at a 1950s movie night while on a restorative holiday at a beach resort off-season. The triumphs and hardships of these three very different women become intertwined as they form an unlikely friendship and work to better their messy lives.

Holiday Hopes

A Starlight Inn Novel

by Jessica Anne Renwick

Genre: Sweet Holiday Romance 

She's tethered to her past until he rescues the horse of her dreams . . .

Kelsey Simone can’t wait to have a tradition-filled family Christmas. When the vet school dropout’s sister invites her and their mom to stay at the idyllic Starlight Inn, Kelsey plans a holiday just like Grandma used to create in hopes of bringing their family together again. But she didn’t have a handsome stable manager with a Grinchy attitude on her Christmas list—nor the sick mare who reminds her of a past she’d rather forget.

Dane Clark has no time for seasonal frivolity. He has a stable to run, a lame horse to look after, and more than enough family drama to deal with. But the more the chatty guest with the pretty brown eyes and a way with horses gets under his skin, the harder it is to remember why he put himself out to pasture in the first place.

While helping the mare together, they start tearing down the fences of their pasts—until a storm hits and the Simone Family Christmas plans go awry. With the mare’s future in jeopardy, will Kelsey’s and Dane’s old wounds rear their heads, or can the warmth of Christmas melt their frosty hearts?

Holiday Hopes is the third title in the clean and wholesome Starlight Inn series. If you like flawed but hopeful heroes, charming small town romance, Christmas cheer, and family ties that sometimes bind, this is the book for you.

Help me celebrate a wonderful Book Birthday! Today is release day for AMY, book 25, Angel Creek Christmas Brides Series. This is the fourth and final year for this popular mail-order bride series set in Montana after the Civil War.  With so many young men killed and others homeless and going west to seek a new start, young women in the east—both north and south—far outnumbered marriage-age men. 

What’s a woman to do? Does she stay at home with her parents? Does she even still have a home, or was it destroyed in the war? Is she destined to be alone instead of a wife and mother? And then there are the women who don't fall into those categories, women like Amy...

 Amy Gordon had a hard life, first in a poorly run orphanage, and then as the pawn of dishonest men. Her spirit refused to be crushed. Get your copy here:


Here’s the book description for AMY:

A desperate woman on the run…

An overwhelmed sheriff who’s guardian of 3 nieces…

Events that threatens their fragile relationship…

Amy Gordon is a swindler escaping from a deal gone bad and the former employer who blames her. Determined to stay out of trouble and out of his clutches, she takes the first train leaving Chicago. When the train derails, she steals the ticket and identity of a crash victim headed to Angel Creek in Montana Territory.

Amy believes if she can make it to Angel Creek, she can evade the vengeful former associate. But as a lifetime Chicago resident going to Montana, Amy had no idea such a desolate landscape existed. She decides to play her part as Bethany until spring, but then she will head for civilization and a new life.

Sheriff Spencer Wood has become guardian of his three young nieces and needs help caring for them. In addition, he admits he’s lonely and is ready for a companion to share his life. His solution is to send for a mail-order bride who will be a good example and caregiver for his nieces, and for the future children he and his wife will have. When Spencer is severely injured, he wonders what will happen to his family if he doesn’t recover.

Spencer is the kind of man Amy had hoped existed, but never thought she’d meet. He treats her with respect and charm. But raising children is confusing, and she’s a novice at managing a household. How long before she can move on? She hardens her heart against her husband and the girls, but finds herself slipping under their spell. Just as she believes she’s found the perfect life, disaster arrives.

Will she have the courage to stay or will she run?


Enjoy an excerpt from AMY:

Amy picked up her spoon, but she realized the girls had bowed their heads. Without drawing attention to herself, she rested the spoon on the table and folded her hands in her lap.

Spencer folded his hands and bowed his head. “Dear Lord, we give thanks that Bethany arrived safely. Bless her as she joins our family. Thank you for the food we are about to receive. Thank you for giving us this day and our many blessings. Help us remember to treat one another with kindness and keep your commandments. Amen.”

Amy stared at her bowl. Had anyone ever given thanks for her safety? She doubted she’d ever even been mentioned in anyone’s prayers before. In fact, she wasn’t certain she knew anyone who even believed in prayer.

She’d heard of the Ten Commandments when she was at the orphanage. Not that the staff lived up to them. Well, Nurse Kathryn did. She’d been patient and understanding—the closest Amy had had to a mother. She wondered what the nurse had thought when Amy had run away.

Many nights after she’d fled, she’d cried herself to sleep, careful no one else knew, and wished for Nurse Kathryn’s arms around her. No matter how she’d tried to harden her heart, she failed. Sap, you’re such an easy mark yourself. This time, though, you made out all right—if that oldest girl doesn’t ruin everything.


Many women became mail-order brides. Chris Enss, author of HEARTS WEST, collected true stories about mail-order brides. Not all of them turned out happily. Don’t worry, though—all of the Angel Creek Christmas Brides books guarantee a happy ending. The fun is the twists and surprises in getting there.

Stay safe and keep reading!

Claire can’t remember a time when writing wasn’t part of her life. Growing up, she used to write stories with her friends. As a teenager she started out reading fantasy and science fiction, but her diet quickly changed to romance and happily-ever-after’s. A native of Massachusetts and cold weather, she left all that behind to move to the sun and fun of California, but has always lived no more than twenty miles from the ocean.

In college she studied acting with a minor in creative writing. In hindsight she should have flipped course studies. Before she was published, she sold books on eBay and discovered some of her favorite authors by sampling the goods, which was the perfect solution. Claire has many book-irons in the fire, most notably her urban fantasy series, The Elementals’ Challenge series, but writes contemporary and shifter romances as well as.

While she’s not a movie mogul or actor, she does work in the film industry with her office firmly situated in the 90210 district of Hollywood. Prone to break out into song, she is quick on feet and just as quick with snappy dialogue. In addition to writing she does animal rescue, reads, and goes to movies. She loves to hear from fans, so feel free to drop her a line.
