The Holiday Couple by Ella Emerson

Gavin McDermott has had a rough couple of years. He met a girl, who ended up falling for his kid brother, and then his mother died. Things were not working out quite as Gavin had hoped for his future. With the holidays approaching, he is invited back to his childhood home to spend time with his brother, the girl that got away, and his new niece.

Not wanting to appear to be a failure in love, Gavin gets the idea to bring a “fake” girlfriend home, only problem…who?

Holly Mathis is having a rough time during the holidays. Her mother and step-father are on vacation and Holly is drowning in bills. Her sexy, neighbor stops by one evening and asks her to fake being his girlfriend for the holiday. Appalled, Holly refuses, but when Gavin offers her the one thing she most desperately needs, she finally relents. Only problem is, they hate each other and have hated each other for years.



7 Days of Christmas by Olivia Howe





Alicia Hanson is a very single woman whose life revolves around her job at The National Gazette. Everyday is like a broken record on repeat… Until she meets Cole Castello—a wealthy and handsome man who tries to restore Alicia’s holiday spirit. Can he pull her away from work long enough to enjoy the Christmas agenda? Can the holiday season bring two people together who are so utterly different?









A Season of Hope by AJ Matthews

Winn blames herself for everything. Her brother’s injuries. The fact that he’s in a wheelchair for heaven-knows-how-long. And that her nephew Tyler, who has autism, has had to adjust to so many changes in the last year. Her own holiday revelry last Christmas left her unable to drive—and so her brother was at the wheel when a drunk driver collided with their car. Winn’s never been a huge fan of Christmas, but this year she downright dreads the upcoming festivities.

Leave it to her brother to relocate their family to the one place in North Carolina that goes all out for Christmas, attracting visitors from all over the southeast.

Eric loves two things: training service dogs, and celebrating the holidays, because nothing made his deceased sister happier than spreading joy, especially to children in need. Children like Tyler. And his aunt could use some Christmas cheer too. Despite the undeniable chemistry Winn and Eric share, her belief that she doesn’t deserve happiness because she’s made so many lives miserable gets in the way.

Can a cute kid and an adorable dog bring this damaged pair together, or will Winn’s guilt continue to drive her to deny her own happiness?



Ghost of Christmas Past by Joy Eileen

Esmerelda Tussaud was born with the ability to talk to spirits. 

Jake Delassixe loved her the moment he saw her sipping chocolate milk through a straw at his grandma's bar. 

Jake didn't think anything could tear them apart, especially after they endured the cruelty of high school. Esmeralda proved him wrong when she left him, on the night of their graduation after his proposal. With nothing tethering him to New Orleans, Jake moved to New York to revamp an old bar his grandma gifted to him. 

Now things are starting to happen in his bar. Things that only Esmeralda can help him with. As Esmeralda comes to Jake's rescue to rid his bar of unwanted specters, she also raises the love he thought was dead. 

Can Jake forgive her?

Will she be banished from his heart like the ghosts in his bar?


Christmas at Cross Purposes by P. Mattern



CHRISTMAS AT CROSS PURPOSES—A STAR CROSSED LOVERS ROMANCE BY P.MATTERN A FIERCE FIRE OF ATTRACTION REKINDLES FROM THE EMBERS TO HEAT UP THE HOLIDAYS.


Cami Blake and Reno Fortuno fell in love to fast and to young. Cami’s disapproving and wealthy family forced her to break off her romance with Reno and enter into an early and disastrous first marriage that ended in divorce. Four years later a chance encounter reconnects the two star crossed lovers and Cami realizes that she has never forgotten her ’first’—but can she come to terms with the fact that Reno’s successful business goes against all her strongly held religious beliefs?




Lights of Pemberley by Addison Kline


Jocelyn York is not prepared to celebrate the winter holidays. With many presents still to buy, a tree still to decorate and travel plans to make, Jocelyn's to-do list is a mile long. Add to the top the seemingly insurmountable grief from learning that her husband Grant, an infantryman for Her Majesty's Army, was killed in action just six months ago. You can safely guess that Jocelyn is not in a joyous spirit. 

Andrew Barrington has been honorably discharged from the army and is re-entering civilian life for the first time in seventeen years after a serious injury has left him unfit for active duty. Coming home with a promise from his best friend who was killed in action, Andrew has one final mission he must compete: Return Grant York's dog tags to his widow, Jocelyn, along with a final letter. Andrew considers this his final tribute to his friend; a duty he must fulfill. The last thing he expects to happen is to fall for his best friend's widow. 

As these two broken souls collide under the lights of Pemberley, their hearts must decide if their common bond will bring them together or tear them apart.



Rocking Around The Christmas Tree by Casey Harvell

When Becca drags Felicity to the top of a mountain to celebrate Christmas, Felicity humors her.

 When Becca and her boyfriend Will include his pal Eric in the plans, Felicity still promises to make the best of it. Who would’ve figured that Felicity would meet somebody who’s actually kind of okay while there? Definitely not her.

Is Felicity really ready to let someone in?

Unwrapped by CJ Pinard


Being the center of attention isn’t exactly my favorite thing in the world. Being the center of attention at this holiday awards party, when the guy who royally screwed me over this past summer is in the room watching me ranks even lower than that.

My ideal month-long holiday break will be spent trying to avoid eye contact with the infuriatingly still-sexy Landon and all his pompous ass friends, while I instead seek out Finn. He seems nice, normal, and cute, and his parents own the best ski lodge around.

These are my intentions, but sometimes the best-laid plans become unraveled, and while I will try not to become too tangled up in drama on what is supposed to be a relaxing Christmas break, I just may end up unwrapped.


Gifted by Cait Reynolds

When you have love, what's left on the Christmas wish list for an immortal?

- ADD TO GOODREADS - 
- EXCERPT -
I groan as I open the car door and pull my body to standing. I rub my eyes, so happy I ditched the contacts and shake out my legs before going to the trunk to pull out my go-bag. Every vehicle I own (even the boat and four-wheelers) has a small duffel bag stashed somewhere in them. They contain cash, clothes, one day of rations (beef jerky and a flask of Jameson, don’t give me too much credit), and a new identity.

The identity I probably won’t need just yet, but I do need the set of clothes. My suit jacket was lost to some poor male patron with a gut shot, and my pants and shirt are ruined by some lady’s blood and the remnants of what I did to Thad during his interrogation. I feel guilty for not using the Morganite knife and killing him for real since I know he’ll heal in the next couple of days. My only solace is that it will take a few days to regrow his whole fucking head.

Dick.

I knew I shouldn’t have gone to my stupid exhibit. I swear it’s the last time I let Evan talk me into anything.

I mean it this time.

Rhys has been quiet most of the drive, and it’s a blessing because I have no idea what to say to him. But it’s a curse as well due to the barbed guilt running through my veins. I’ve spent little time with him that hasn’t included me trying to rip him limb from limb, so a conversation might be impossible. I’m also a little disturbed having him so close hasn’t been the hardship I thought it would be. He’s been quiet, considerate, and he pumped the gas when we stopped because me getting out of the car would have caused a stir.

We both get out of the car and walk to the trunk, which I’ve popped with the key fob.

“You want me to carry that?” he asks, chivalrously reaching past me to lift my duffel out of the trunk. The bastard. I really wish he’d cooperate and be an asshole so I could hate him appropriately. I grind my teeth together in an attempt to avoid screaming and give a jerky nod, letting him take the bag. It takes some effort, but I gently close my trunk, careful not to hurt my baby even though I want to smash something.

I stride towards the front door behind Rhys, vigilantly trying not to stomp my feet and pout like a Goddamn toddler. My anger only grows when I notice how fucking spectacular he looks in a suit. Holy shit balls. He’s easily six foot three, maybe taller. I’m five-three on a good day, so he’s at least an entire foot taller than me. The crisp dark charcoal gray suit emphasizes the wideness of his shoulders and the line of his body as it flows from his strong neck to his lean waist and tight ass. People I hate are not supposed to be this fucking hot in a suit.

~~~ BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY~~~ The Fall Up by Aly Martinez



Maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall

in love at rock bottom—up.

 

NOW AVAILABLE!




 
I wanted to jump.
He made me fall.
 
As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight. 
 
Until he found me.
 
Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.
 
But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.
 
Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?
 
Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.
Excerpt One
“Thank fuck!” Sam said, swinging the door open before Devon even had the car in park.
“Oh, this isn’t my place. We’re just dropping Devon off. I’m about twenty minutes across town?”  I tossed him a sugary smile then boldly shifted my hand into his lap, purposely brushing the bulge under his denim.
Grabbing my wrist, he narrowed his eyes and called out, “Devon, I’m gonna need to borrow a bedroom.”
I burst out laughing as Devon cursed loudly.
“Fine. This is my place. No smoking inside though,” I snipped as I climbed from the SUV.
“You better have some seriously exciting extracurricular activities to keep me distracted, then.”
“I have Ping-Pong!”
“Not exactly what I was thinking.” He mischievously cocked his head. “But I guess paddles and balls are as good a start as any.” Dipping down, he hoisted me over his shoulder. “Point me to the Ping-Pong table, my lady.”
I didn’t. I laughed hysterically as he carried me inside. Then I directed him to my bedroom instead.
I heard Devon locking up the house as Sam deposited me on the bed.
“Jesus. This view.”  He pushed the curtains back. “Why the hell would you ever go up to the bridge when you have this here?”
“I don’t know,” I answered, pulling my earrings off and placing them on my nightstand.
Oh, but I knew. It might not have been what had originally sent me up that bridge, but it was why my feet carried me back every night. And that very reason was currently standing in front of me with entirely too much clothing on.
“You want a beer?” I asked, sliding my shoes off.
“Nah, I’m good.” He faced me, and I could tell something was off with his demeanor. He didn’t inch any closer. Instead, his lips were tight and his eyes uncomfortably flashed around the room.
It suddenly didn’t feel like Sam standing in front of me at all.
He felt like a stranger who had just come face-to-face with Levee Williams.
Damn it.
“Why are you looking at me like that? Are you about to freak out?” I whispered, nervously moistening my lips.
He shoved his hands into his pockets. “I’m not really sure yet. But I’m gonna need you to stop licking your lips long enough for me to figure it out.” His mouth cracked into a wide grin, and my shoulders relaxed.
Now that was a flash of my Sam.
“Want to tell me what’s going on?” I asked.
“It’s just… I think this is the first time I’ve realized that you’re some big-time celebrity. I might be in over my head here, Designer Shoes.”
“I just make music, Sam.” I returned his smile and very slowly prowled in his direction. “Imagine how I feel though. You’re Samuel Nathan Rivers. A tough, tattooed furniture designer who makes six figures a year but is too afraid to tell his mommy he votes democratic.” I giggled as he frowned humorously. Stopping in front of him, I dragged a fingernail down his chest then teased the waistband of his jeans. “Have you considered that maybe I’m the one who’s in over her head here?” I leaned forward to nip at his lips, but he spun us around.
“Excellent point. I’m going to need you to try really hard to keep it together, Levee. You haven’t even seen my six-pack and huge cock, yet.” He smirked and attempted to return my nip, but I stepped out of his reach.
“You brought beer and chicken?” I feigned excitement.
That one corny joke was all it took to bring my Sam back completely.
With a sexy smile and a coy shrug, he seductively backed me toward the bed. “What can I say? I like to be prepared.”
“Clearly,” I breathed.
He moved in close so his lips were only a centimeter away, but for as much as I wanted him, it was agonizing. “Clearly,” he repeated, his smoky yet sweet breath breezing across my mouth.
His strong arm looped around my waist, tugging me against his chest, while I stared into his hooded eyes, eagerly waiting for him to make a move.
Any move.
Every move.

Lisa Helen Gray (1987) born in Birmingham. All Lisa has ever 
wanted to do in life, apart from be a mother, is to read and write, and at a certain age she wanted to be a princess.We can all dream, right?


Serious note though, she has been a passionate reader ever since her Nan first handed her The Three Gollywogs by Enid Blyton. After that, she lived in a land of fantasy. 
First came Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then Angel, and it went on to Twilight and The Hunger Games. Some would say she is a daydreamer, but she is just a firm believer that there is a happily ever after. Hence, her huge love of romance novels.
She got into reviewing other author’s novels, and then decided to publish her own work. Bringing us to her first novel, If I could I'd wish it all away (2014). 

She always has her head stuck in a romance novel and is often (too often) reminded of this. When she hasn't got her head stuck in a book or writing her next novel, she is glued to the TV series Pretty Little Liars, walking dead, The Originals, The Vampire Diaries and of course, Veronica Mars. Just an ordinary girl surround by extraordinary books
