Several years ago, my husband got hooked on Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. “Why am I watching these?” he asked.
“Because we’re tired of bad news,” I said. “And we want something less negative, more optimistic.”
Romance writers like to provide that touch of optimism this time of year and give you Christmas romance novels to read.
I wrote my newest Christmas novella last year during the pandemic lockdown and while I took chemotherapy. A BookBub reviewer said this about SANTA’S WISH: Sweet Christmas magic and second chances abound in this adorable romance story. Just what you need to curl up to on a cold winter day…or any other day!
I have two (actually three) other Christmas stories. The older series is about a family named Winchester who live in a small town called Legend. These older books are a bit steamier than my most current story.
The first book contains two novellas that are set in 1968 and 1969. To some people those dates are history. Some of us remember that time. LOL! The main characters are the parents of the main characters in later books in the series.
So, dear readers, if you are looking for a touch of optimism and good cheer, please consider my Christmas offerings.
Will Christmas magic help them overcome Roz’s career ambitions and Cooper’s grief, and bring them together for a second chance at love?
A Groovy Christmas revisits 1968 and 1969 in two novellas.
1968 – In a year where women are burning bras and men are burning draft cards, strait-laced Kathleen wants to do something about being a virgin before it’s too late.
1969 – Avoiding home at Christmas, is high on Frank’s priority list until he meets his mother’s houseguest, a girl with a past…and maybe Frank’s future.
Actress Dawn needs someone to turn to when her world crumbles, but she’s avoiding her family. When her high school boyfriend Clint shows up on her doorstep in a snowstorm dressed as Santa, she welcomes him. Will their night of lovemaking bring Dawn more heartache or can Clint convince the lonely actress that it’s time for her to come home for good?
