Save $2 today with this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"An ingenious rendition of the Santa Story. D. Thrush's imagination comes through on every page. Many times I laughed when song lyrics from music we all love are evoked. I loved "Have you ever seen the Northern Lights!" Thrush captures this beautiful natural phenomenon perfectly during the story. I also loved the semi-subtle references to modern life. I loved the ending too! Who would have thought a story about Santa would capture my attention. But this one did and the story made me a believer....in Santina Claus!" -- Amazon reviewer

Get in the mood for the holidays with this fun story for adults of all ages. Tina Claus has daddy issues. Santa is a workaholic who has focused all his attention on Nicholas, Jr. assuming he’ll take over the family business. This has been the tradition for generations of Claus sons, but Nick wants no part of his legacy. He just wants to be a rock star. Santa’s wife, Clara Claus worries about his health and thinks they should retire to their condo in Florida. Tina can’t seem to please her father and just wants to step out of the shadow of her famous family, finish college and have her own life. But during a family emergency, it’s up to Tina to temporarily take over at the North Pole while Nick’s band is on tour.

Now she finds herself dealing with outdated machinery, the demands of the union, belligerent reindeer, a long distance relationship, the charm of an old boyfriend, her best friend’s drama and too many Peppermintinis at the Pub. Christmas is quickly approaching and she’s counting on her undependable brother to do the delivery. How did she get herself into this mess and how can she get back to her own life? It’s not easy being Santa’s daughter!

Humor, girl power and a little Christmas magic make this story a must for your holiday reading!

The Christmas Bake Off, by Abby Clements. (Still free?)

"I enjoyed this short Christmas story of a small village in a bake-off competition. The characters were certainly realistic and I liked how they interacted in a believable and clever way. I can't say more without giving away what happens, but it is definitely worth the read." -- Amazon reviewer

With Christmas just around the corner, the residents of Skipley village are gearing up for the annual bake off, and tensions are high.

Winning means a lot to everyone involved--talented cake-shop owner Katie dreams of baking stardom, Rachel wants to prove she's more than a stay-at-home mom, and John hopes his culinary skills will impress the woman he loves.

But when the judges discover that some cakes have been tampered with, the villagers' loyalties are called into question--whose ambition would stretch to sabotage, and why?

The Christmas Bake Off is an exclusive short story from Abby Clements, author of Meet Me Under the Mistletoe. This edition also includes bonus recipes for cinnamon cookies and vanilla and almond biscuits.

A Christmas Charade, by Karla Hocker. (Still free?)

"A tender beginning and an interesting story. I love the atmosphere, the romantic story and being in a fairy kind of dream." -- Amazon reviewer


Charming, romantic, and painted with gorgeous Regency detail, Karla Hocker’s romances will delight readers from the very first page.

Elizabeth Gore-Langton was hardly in a position to refuse to accompany Lady Astley to the Christmas party at Stenton Castle. After all, a paid companion must follow her employer's wishes. It scarcely mattered that Elizabeth would be forced to face the man who had unknowingly broken her heart years ago during her first season. Most likely, the Duke of
Stenton wouldn't even recognize her. But once she looked up into his dark, piercing eyes, she knew this was a man who forgot very little and forgave even less. Well, she was no longer a blushing schoolgirl, and the dashing duke would soon find that a broken heart, once mended, could be formidable, indeed!

Clive Rowland, Fifth Duke of Stenton, was in no mood for a holiday gathering. But the Christmas gala would provide the perfect cover as he investigated reports that French agents were doing a brisk trade in stolen documents along the Sussex coast. It would be devilishly difficult to play the host while tracking down traitors, but Clive was up to the task—provided he kept his wits about him and didn't get distracted by yule logs and Christmas folderol… or the delightful charms of the disturbingly familiar Elizabeth. She was hiding something, to be sure, and Clive liked nothing better than unveiling a lady's secrets!

Bah, Humbug! (A Christmas Street Romantic Comedy Novella), by Heather Horrocks. (Still free?)

"I absolutely loved this book, and I will definitely be reading it again...I was shocked because even though it was a short story, it ended perfectly!! My favorite part of the story was the reason they got off on the wrong foot ended up being the start of something new for them. This book made me laugh, (almost) made me cry, and it really got me into the Christmas spirit, and I loved every minute of it." -- Amazon reviewer

PG-RATED FUN

BAH, HUMBUG! (A Romantic Comedy Christmas Novella)

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block--until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it’s the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain’s weapon will fit inside a snowman's body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi’s next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.
