This is a nice collection of stories that have a couple themes running through them all. Christmas and Christmas Movies. If you enjoy either of those or both….this could be the collection for you. Here is just a small random selection of the stories.
Jingle With my Princess
By Mona Risk
Talk about instant attraction! Wow! I loved how open Charlene is…not afraid to shower him with affection. Very nice! Problem is she live most of her life across the pond. He in the US. How can they come together?
Scott has been burned before by a princess but there is just something about Princess Charlene that he can’t resist. Too bad he brought his current lover along on the business trip. Not only that but he is there to help his ex-fiancé and her husband (a Prince) who stole her from him. Now what to do? Can he put his feelings aside for his Ex? Can he move forward?
Can She Get Home for Christmas
by Rebecca York
On a snowy night all it took was a small accident and Samantha’s night was changed forever. This is a quick read with a ton of action. With a backdrop themes of danger and christmas. This kept my interest.
Miracle on Christmas Tree Street
By Alicia Street
Well this is just an enjoyable story! I loved all of it. It’s sweet and has the mystery of Christmas. Even though it’s a short story I didn’t feel rushed or cheated while reading. I didn’t feel thrown into the middle of a story. This has a nice beginning middle and end. I chuckled at the name of Hannah’s business partner….very creative!
The Holiday (Christmas) by Nancy Radke
House swapping! What a neat idea for a story! That leaves all kinds of possibilities available. This one involved smugglers, and stalker and a sunken sailboat. That made the story lively and interesting.
Love Letters from a Snowman
By Katy Walters
This is a sweet sweet story. It’s set back in the time of Lords, Barons and Governess’. Surprisingly there was a bit of magic back then as well. This started off with a bang. I loved all the characters and the story flowed very nicely. Definitely a good read.
The Polar Express by Dani Haviland
This is a typical story of a couple stuck in a cabin. But this has the added twist of being in Alaska! The characters were sweet and the story was good. My only issue was I felt the relationship was rushed. It seemed to go from hate to friendship to relationship (which is the right order) but most of the story was the first two then the last was after 1 kiss. Then the end. I know I know short story so things happen faster. Anyway I enjoyed the meeting and the information of living where she does with just the dogs.
The Ref-er-ee by Taylor Lee
Troubled marriage, troubles teen and an possibly absent Christmas. Aly and Logan have moves up in the world with the security business. While business boomed with relationship went downhill. Dylan/Nick uses the Christmas season to get himself some presents….by stealing them. This Christmas will change for the Starr family and Dylan.
This is a nice story that seemed complete. Good characters and teenagers that seems so realistic. Not to mention the troubled marriage…losing feelings over the year I’m sure happens more than not.
Boyfriends Wanted for Christmas
By Melinda De Ross
Ha haha! This story is a great one! Poor Andrea is looking for a boyfriend for Christmas. Oh and she only has 7 days to find one! Let’s just say hilarity ensues.
This story flows very nicely and easily kept my interest. There is funny times along with sweet times. The characters were great! Her parents included.
This one is a favorite.
