Novella / Short Story | Romance Holiday | Romance Anthology
A group of best selling authors come together to write a funny,
uplifting, emotion filled book of four novellas in A Season to Celebrate. These stories run the gamut of
four couples who unexpectedly find love during the holiday season.
Fern Michaels' story, A Christmas Homecoming, follows a returning Air
Force PJ who hasn't been home for Christmas in 6 years and the newly
arrived pediatric orthopedic doctor who's moved to town with her little
girl to start her career. They cross paths at church and the
misunderstandings start from there. Will they come together for the
holiday season with a little matchmaking from his mom?
Kate Pearce's An Unexpected gift brings together Billy and Bella,
friends forever who find a late in life romance when he comes to her
rescue. Bella needs help at her bar/restaurant and Billy helps her out,
as well as help arrange her son's wedding reception. When a threat
comes back to town, it is up to Billy and Bella to work together to stop
it. They also have family and personal issues that could keep them
A Christmas in Blue Hollow brings Donna Kauffman's Mira and Hudson
together in an unusual way. Hudson is catering her brother's wedding,
but Mira isn't in a celebratory mood. When he's sent to make sure she's
alright, she's got a problem she's trying to handle. Their attraction is
strong and like nothing they've ever felt before. As they spend time
together, their attraction turns into something more...
Priscilla Oliveras' story, Holiday Home Run, is the story of Julia and Ben
coming together to work for a charity event, and if it goes well, then
Julia will stay in Chicago permanently. Ben is a former baseball player
who's still dealing with his career being cut short due to injury, is very
interested in Julia, but she's been warned to never date a baseball
player. Neither can deny their feelings, but while their passion grows,
Ben reveals an unexpected surprise to Julia that leaves her questioning
everything she thought she knew about him...
A Season to Celebrate will have
you laughing, crying, and feeling festive this holiday season as four
couples unexpectedly find the loves of their lives. Only these authors
can have you showing such a range of emotion. I'd love to read more
holiday stories by these authors.
CHRISTMAS HOMECOMING * Fern Michaels
Former Air Force Pararescueman Kevin Matthews is back home
in Texas, working at his family’s Christmas tree farm while
deciding his next move. Or maybe he won’t move at all, if
sparks keep flying with the town’s new surgeon, Kate
Stafford . . .
AN UNEXPECTED GIFT * Kate Pearce
Widower Billy Morgan wishes his grown children still needed
him. Good thing his longtime friend, Bella, does. She’s
planning her son’s Christmas wedding and Billy is happy to
help. Along the way they just might discover their own
occasion to celebrate . . .
CHRISTMAS IN BLUE HOLLOW FALLS * Donna Kauffman
Attorney Moira Brogan expects her brother’s Christmas
wedding to be a peaceful affair. She doesn’t expect to be
cornered by an unwanted lothario, rescued by a gorgeous
Aussie chef—or be swept off her feet by said chef. Nursing a
broken heart, the last thing she wants is a new romance. But
Hudson Walker has other ideas . . .
HOLIDAY HOMERUN * Priscilla Oliveras
Event planner Julia Louisa Fernandez dreams of a life in
Chicago. But her family in Puerto Rico expects her to take
over the catering business. Former pro baseball player Ben
Thomas knows what that’s like—and when they meet, he might
be the one to inspire a winning strategy, just in time for
the holidays . . .
