51uZJTKCEqL._SY346_THE LIGHTKEEPER’S DAUGHTERS

“Jean Pendziwol’s beautifully written novel captured me from the very first page. Its descriptions of the windswept lightkeeper’s station of Elizabeth’s and Emily’s youth are so crisply rendered I felt I was standing on its shores watching the great ships cross the stormy waters of Lake Superior. Even more than its vivid evocation of a unique time and place, The LightKeeper’s Daughters is a sensitive and moving examination of the nature of identity, the importance of family, and the possibility of second chances.”—Heather Young, author of The Lose Girls

There’s a legend in Twilight, Texas. If you sleep with a kismet cookie under your pillow on Christmas Eve, you will dream of your one true love.

51CFJ27O50L._SY346_RELENTLESS PURSUIT

Relentless Pursuit is the fifth installment in the Bluegrass Brothers series.

Sometimes you have to fight for love…

Pierce Davies watched as his older siblings fell in love—something this bachelor was not ready for. Though Pierce enjoyed the single lifestyle, his life has been his work and that hard work is set to pay off big time with the unveiling of a secret project that is big enough to change his life forever. However, this work hard, play hard attitude may have also landed him in hot water as he finds himself arrested for a brutal murder with a mountain of evidence pointing to him.

Tammy Fields has been suffering from the crush to end all crushes. But her flirtations have fallen short as Pierce Davies seems to only see her as a friend. Tammy decides that now is the time to move on, and move on she has. But everything changes quickly when Pierce is arrested and Tammy, a paralegal, is called upon to help with his case. While working closely with Pierce to prove his innocence, she realizes her feelings for Pierce are far more meaningful than just a crush. Will they finally find love or will the increasing danger prevent their happily ever after?

51z9j47XJwL._SY346_HOW THE DUKES STOLE CHRISTMAS

From the ballrooms of London, to abandoned Scottish castles, to the snowy streets of Gilded Age New York, four bestselling authors whip up unforgettable Christmas romance.

“Meet Me in Mayfair” by Tessa Dare
Louisa Ward needs a Christmas miracle. Unless she catches a wealthy husband at the ball, the Duke of Thorndale will evict her family from their home. When Louisa finds herself waltzing with the heartless Thorndale, she’s unnerved by his handsome looks—and surprising charm.

“The Duke of Christmas Present” by Sarah MacLean 
Rich and ruthless, Eben, Duke of Allryd doesn’t care for the holidays. But when Lady Jacqueline Mosby returns to town after a long absence, Eben falls under the spell of Christmas—and the woman he never stopped loving.

“Heiress Alone” by Sophie Jordan
When Annis Bannister finds herself stranded in the Highlands during a Christmas snowstorm, she must fend off brigands terrorizing the countryside. Her only hope falls on her neighbor, a surly hermit duke who unravels her with a kiss.

“Christmas in Central Park” by Joanna Shupe
Mrs. Rose Walker pens a popular advice/recipe column. No one knows Rose can’t even boil water. When her boss, Duke Havemeyer, insists she host a Christmas party, Rose must find a husband, an empty mansion, and a cook. But Rose fears her plan is failing—especially when Duke’s attentions make her want to step under the mistletoe with him.

51clhLlbukLALASKAN HOLIDAY

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Debbie Macomber brings us to the Alaskan wilderness for a magical Christmas tale about finding love where it’s least expected.

“Picture-perfect . . . this charmer will please Macomber fans and newcomers alike.”—Publishers Weekly

Before beginning her dream job as sous chef in one of Seattle’s hottest new restaurants, Josie Avery takes a summer position cooking at a lakeside lodge in the remote Alaskan town of Ponder. Josie falls for the rustic charms of the local community—including Jack Corcoran, the crotchety keeper of Ponder’s famed sourdough starter, and, in particular, the quiet and intense Palmer Saxon, a famed master swordsmith.

Josie and Palmer become close during the long Alaskan summer days, but Josie knows that, come fall, she’ll be returning to reality and the career she’s worked so hard for. Palmer, on the other hand, would like nothing better than to make Josie his wife and to keep her in Ponder. But Josie can’t imagine abandoning her mother back in the Emerald City and sacrificing her career to stay in this isolated town—not even for a man she’s quickly coming to love.

Fate has other plans. Josie misses the last boat out of town before winter sets in, stranding her in Ponder and putting her dream job at risk. As the holidays approach, Josie and Palmer must grapple with the complications that arise when dreams confront reality, and the Christmas magic that can happen when they put their faith in love.

51Mu1Jq0VELCHRISTMAS CLICHE

‘Twas the week before Christmas
and all through L.A.,
Allie Parker’s famous twin sisters
were driving her cray.
She fled to the mountains
with a hostage in tow,
hoping to sleep through the holidays,
which were a sh*t-show.
A crash in a blizzard,
and a hot mountain man,
definitely wasn’t part
of her evacuation plan.
Santas, and stockings,
and creepy nutcrackers too,
everywhere she looks,
it’s a crazy Christmas zoo.
But there are hugs, and smiles,
and a beautiful view,
kisses and laughter,
and no time to be blue.
Maybe this family,
with their hot mountain man,
will make this a Christmas
Allie can actually stand.

After going to the police, he discovers his father is involved in even more nefarious activities than he’d suspected.

And when he saves Nina from near assault at Dragonfly Pointe, they share a magical connection the week before Josh disappears, supposedly sent to prison.
Now a nurse at the wounded warrior home, Nina Chandler helps Josh confront the demons from his abusive past, and in the process she discovers the attraction she felt for him all those years ago has never gone away.
But does an attempt on Josh’s life mean that his tarnished past has finally caught up with him, or will fate allow Josh and Nina to find love at Christmas?
