Can a sexy rancher give a young woman hope?

MY REVIEW:

Wow, this short story had it all going on. Someone to feel sorry for, someone to hate, people to cheer for, those you "boo", those you feel you love, others you could fall in love with. But, for sure you will be sad because it does happen like this in the real world. But, glad to know that there are heroes like in this story that can make it right part of the time. To give you your HEA at Christmas this story does.

Yale University freshman Ally Brown is spending her first Thanksgiving away from home. Feeling alone and restless in a deserted dormitory, she sets off on an adventure to tour the amazing holiday window displays along New York City's Fifth Avenue.

But her plans get sidetracked as she switches from tourist to stalker after spotting her crush, Jack Prescott, who is taking the same train into the city. He's the handsome Editor in Chief of the Yale Daily News and the man of her dreams—if only she could work up the courage to speak to him.

Certain that it would take a miracle for Jack to notice her, Ally experiences her own "Miracle on 34th Street" when things take an surprisingly romantic turn, thanks to a little Magic at Macy's.

MY REVIEW:

What a fun way to start the holiday season off with this sweet romantic short story. Sorry folks no sex scenes but all the stuff of a "ah ha" moment. A romantic story of …

Single mom Ellie is lonely and struggling to find a job. She takes her little boy to a Christmas tree farm to see Santa and runs head on into a blue-eyed Viking with a winsome smile.

Reece opened his Christmas tree farm after the accident that nearly took his life. But it left him with the vision of a woman who would heal his heart.

A 13,000 word short story/novelette.



MY REVIEW:


HEA at Christmas is just what the doctor ordered. What a fun Christmas short this is. A single mother struggling to raise her son who wants what every child wants at Christmas starting with a Christmas tree. Not having the money & not liking her answer, her son runs off. As she goes looking for him she runs right into her most sexy future. For him she is his Christmas angel. A fun read & was free on amazon when I got it.

Emma Turner feels like her life ended with the death of her husband. Three years later she’s doing the best she can for her children and moving through life on autopilot. She doesn’t believe true love can happen twice in a lifetime. As a matter of fact, she doesn’t believe in much anymore. Putting her trust in one honest man might be just what she needs to move forward.

Bound by duty Jake Nicklaus never imagined he’d cross the line and fall in love with the woman he swore he’d watch over. If only he’d died on that chopper instead of her husband, she wouldn’t be hurting. The only way to heal her heart is to show her how to live again. Finding the magic in Christmas is the perfect way to start.  Will one kiss under the mistletoe change their lives forever?

MY REVIEW:

I am so glad I read this book. It is so easy to get into self. That we forget about those we love especially when times are hard, like for this mother of two whose husb…

When it comes to love, she's a professional skeptic. Is it too late for a career change?

If there's one thing Georgiana Down is an expert in, it's bad relationships. That's what inspired her blog, Down on Love, where she gives snarky advice--usually along the lines of "dump him." In fact, George is abstaining from men all together. At least that's the plan--until she makes a trip back to her tiny hometown in the Catskills, where meddling is an art form. . .

George loves helping out with her new baby niece, but she's counting the days until she returns to Boston. Then she runs into Casey Bowen, her high school crush. The boy she once loved is now a handsome grown man--and suddenly George needs a little advice of her own. She's in the right place, because when she drunk posts on her blog, everyone in Marsden has something to say about George and Casey. It's like high school all over again--but maybe …
