Santa Snippets

There are so many fun holiday romance stories. From the Hallmark channel to the library bookshelves–you can find them most anywhere–including our very own Main Street. Do you have a holiday romance to share? It can be from a novel to a personal experience. (If it’s a novel, be sure and leave a buy link! Don’t tease us with a snippet and leave us hanging.) Please limit your excerpt or blurb to 150 words. Here’s mine:

bcf34-christmas2blie2bwhiteCarson Trent doesn’t know the beautiful Millie Cruise who literally falls into his lap is really Camille Harper,  a bestselling romance writer.
Millie doesn’t know she’s headed for Carson’s grandmother’s inn in a quaint New England town.
Neither Carson nor Millie know that their lives are about to spin out of control thanks to a patch of black ice, a cow, and a little white Christmas lie.

    Dylan is the bassist for Jake Lindsey’s band, but not when he’s in his hometown. It’s Christmas Eve and a sudden, strong blizzard has left the mountain submerged in snow, wrecking his plan to drive back to Los Angeles in time to attend Jake and Beth’s party Christmas Day.

    Jennifer’s family was coming to spend the holiday at her cabin, but the storm is keeping them off the mountain. Resigned to entertaining herself for the night, she’s startled by someone pounding on her front door–a handsome man needing shelter from the storm. Dylan is sweet, funny, and so damn hot she can’t resist learning what he has to offer.

    Was this a single night of passion, or the beginning of lasting love?

    This story is intended for readers over the age of 18 due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

    The More The Merrier

    Fed up with a string of bad blind dates, health blogger Alyssa Wu wants to drown her sorrows in ice cream. But there’s one more evening she must endure–a fake date with her best friend Barry Chang. They must convince her family they’re in love, an act which may (or may not) be easy to pull off, thanks to the magic of some mistletoe.

    This 10,000 word short story is perfect for your lunch break, workout, or while you wait in line at the mall. Read it today to get into the Christmas spirit any time of the year!

    Thanks for your graciousness in opening up your blog. My Christmas story is called Hearts Landing.

    A week before Christmas, Keziah Steelman has to convince the small town of Hearts Landing to approve construction of Galaxy Corporation’s mega casino. Since the town has lost its major employer, it should be an easy sell.

    Unstoppable force meets immovable object in the person of Ric Hudson, Christian leader of the opposition. Armed with handmade posters and mimeographed fliers, Ric seems woefully lacking to take on Galaxy.

    But so did David against Goliath. Although Keziah views Christianity as a flawed belief system, she grew up in a Christian home and doesn’t underestimate the threat posed by a true believer. Her plan: go to Hearts Landing, masquerade as a tourist, infiltrate the opposition and destroy it from within.

    Keziah left the Lord in her past. Secrets from Ric’s past threaten to destroy his future. Can the hearts of this unlikely couple land in a love only God can give?

  6. Thank you for the chance to post about my Christmas book! I have downloaded yours and can’t wait to read it!

    Santa Claus isn’t who, or what, you think he is!

    Santa Claus is an Arctic Wolf Shifter, and the mantle has always passed down to his sons. But this Santa didn’t have any boys, he has 4 girls!

    His eldest daughter is supposed to marry the son of the pack’s Beta wolf, Rock. But she has refused. Lizzy wants to marry for love, not pack standing.
    You can pick up a copy here for .99c before it goes up to $2.99 next week!

      An arctic wolf? Well that would explain his hair and how he can handle all that cold. But what about the elves? I would think they would be afraid they’d be the next meal. 😉
