CHASING CHRISTMAS EVE is the next book in the Heartbreaker
Bay series about an eclectic group of friends. What
makes this series so great is the way that Jill Shalvis
gives each character a unique personality. Even though they
are not what a traditional family is, there is no question
that they consider themselves a family. There is a
protectiveness for one another -- even if on occasion they
may get on each other's nerves. This group will no doubt
keep you entertained with their unusual wit. The
billionaire, genius geek meets an author with her own brand
of swear words that are hilarious.
Bestselling YA author Colbie Albright flees New York for San
Francisco looking for some peace away from her crazy family
that depends on her for everything and the pressure from her
agent. Her first time meeting Spence Baldwin will be at the
infamous fountain that is a very memorable moment. Colbie
wants to keep her true identity a secret just so she can
enjoy a few days of peace and Spence is continually
attempting to dodge the press and the avalanche of offers
from women all over the world. So when Spence shows interest
in Colbie his eclectic group of friends wants to do
everything to protect him, especially "take no mess" Elle.
Elle has always been very protective of Spence and has no
problem using intimidation to get information when she wants it.
This is a wonderful series about family, biological or one
created. Colbie has always taken care of her family, doing
everything for them and never taking time for herself. When
she is at her breaking point she has to decide whether she
can finally put herself first for once. Spence trusted
someone who he thought was a friend who ended up betraying
him. Now he finally meets someone who makes him happy but
can he trust his feelings?
(A standalone Heartbreaker Bay novel)
Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie
Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco.
Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling
YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short,
Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under
the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an
hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out
has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But
she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.
Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of
Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the
powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie.
Just because she can laugh at anything, especially
herself... just because she’s gorgeous and a great
listener…just because she “gets” Spence immediately doesn’t
mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?
…and hope for a miracle.
Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to
cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out
how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.
