Four classic Christmas romances — no cliffhangers
The Unlikely Santa — In the retail business, Christmas isn’t a holiday, it’s an endurance contest – and as manager of the Tyler-Royale department store in a major Chicago shopping mall, Brandi Ogilvie knows that surviving December will be a challenge. Merchandise is going astray and her staff is decimated by flu, but at least Brandi has a full roster of Santas. Then Zack Forrest shows up in her store, insisting he’s the perfect candidate to fill Santa’s red velvet suit.
Brandi’s new Santa is too tall, too lean, too dark, and way too sexy for the role. But he’s enough to make a jaded department store manager think twice about what she’d like to find under her tree on Christmas morning – if only she wasn’t so certain that Zack is hiding something.
The Unlikely Santa was a finalist in the Romance Writers of America RITA contest for best sweet traditional romance of the year.
Strictly Business — The friendship between Gianna West and Blake Whittaker has never interfered with their business partnership, Westway Cosmetics. But when Gianna’s brilliant ideas for marketing their newest perfume throw Blake into the arms of the world’s most gorgeous model, Gianna begins to wonder if he’s involved in monkey business instead.
Brittany’s Castle — Brittany Bridges and Ryan Masters no longer have anything in common; their marriage is doomed. But Ryan demands that Brittany go along with the pretense for a few weeks more, in return for his cooperation in the courts. So Brittany allows him to move back to the house they once shared – Brittany’s Castle, which soon feels more like a prison.
The Only Solution — Wendy Miller adores the baby girl her dying friend left in her care, but when she loses her job, she has no choice but to call on Rory’s family for help. What she doesn’t count on is that Mack Burgess wants to raise his niece.
Mack’s wealthy and powerful, and he could take Rory away from her in an instant. But Rory’s attached to Wendy – so Mack’s solution is to propose that they build a family for the baby’s sake.
In order to keep her baby, can Wendy actually marry the man she’s come to love – even though he doesn’t love her?
