If you're like Carla Neggers, you don't consider the
holidays complete without watching "White Christmas," the
highest–ranking film at the box office in 1954.
Starring Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kay and
Vera–Ellen, the movie was the first ever shot in the
VistaVision widescreen format? And who could forget the
colorful costuming in the song–and–dance
The lucky winner in Carla's Holiday contest will receive
the Two–Disc Holiday Edition of "White Christmas,"
along with an ARC of her February contemporary romance from
Harlequin MIRA, THAT NIGHT ON THISTLE LANE. In this second
book in Carla's Swift River Valley series Phoebe O'Dunn
discovers a secret room in the small–town library
where she works. The room is filled with vintage
Hollywood–style gowns, reminiscent of those worn
in "White Christmas." Phoebe wears one of the gowns to a
Boston masquerade ball and meets a handsome swashbuckler.
Who he is and how those gowns came to be in that secret
room will keep the winner turning the pages.
O'Dunn deals in stories, but her passion for history has
taught her that happy endings are rare. Her life in Knights
Bridge, Massachusetts, is safe and uneventful...until she
discovers the hidden room.
Among its secrets is a cache of vintage clothing,
including a spectacular gown—perfect for a gala
masquerade in Boston. In the guise of a princess, Phoebe is
captivated by a handsome swashbuckler who's also adopted a
more daring persona. Noah Kendrick's wealth has made him
wary, especially of women: everybody wants something.
When Noah and Phoebe meet again in Knights Bridge, at
first neither recognizes the other. And neither one is sure
they can trust the magic of the night they
shared—until an unexpected threat prompts them to
unmask their truest selves.
After all, it takes more than just the right costume to
live out your personal fairy tale. It takes heart...and the
courage to be more than you ever dreamed.
