Win an Amazon Gift Card


Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Kari Lee Harmon!


National Bestselling Author Kari Lee Harmon writes romantic comedies, emotional women’s fiction, and dark women’s fiction. She also writes fun cozy mysteries as Kari Lee Townsend.

If you’re looking for an author who will make you laugh out loud one minute, shed a tear the next, and sigh as you reach The End, then I’m the author for you. I love to go on adventures, play with my two big fluffy Samoyeds, drink a great glass of wine, pretend I’m a professional photographer, and curl up with a good book. I used to love a hot bubble bath, but now I’m all about a hot tub. My favorite holiday is Christmas, and, yes, I start watching Hallmark Holliday movies just as soon as they start showing the new ones.

What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:

  • A great sense of humor
  • A mushy heart who loves the feels
  • An adventurous spirit
  • Is all about the holidays
  • Loves wounded alpha heroes who need saving

JINGLE ALL THE WAY by Kari Lee Harmon

Merry Scroog-mas #3

Jingle All the Way

Dashing through the hills, jingling bells, and laughing all the way is anything but fun with Scrooge MacGruff riding shotgun.

Boston advertising exec, Ellen Patterson, has always been a devilish elf, landing herself in trouble more times than not. As big as her personality is, her heart is even bigger. She can’t help taking in wounded strays and trying to fix them. She’d love to find a man of her own like her best friends and coworkers, Samantha Darling and Amber Evans. But so far no one she’s met has been man enough to handle her. But then she meets Detective MacKenzie Johnson who stuns everyone by showing up at Sam and Nate’s wedding. Mac, aka Scrooge MacGruff, is the angry wounded half-brother to Sam’s husband Nathan Snow. His father abandoned him and his mother couldn’t handle him, so he grew up alone in an orphanage in Boston. Instantly melting, Ellen tries to heal Mac’s wounds, but he won’t let anyone get close to him. Doing what she does best, she leaves a lasting impression by kissing him under the mistletoe and then getting into as much trouble as possible so he can’t ignore her. If all goes according to plan, she intends to ring in the New Year and make his spirit bright, but she underestimates the street smart, tough as nails cop and is stunned to discover she may have finally met her match.
