Their paths cross again when Jake and his millionaire employer visit Victoria's hometown of Tyler, Tennessee before opening a Haley's Emporium there and stay in Victoria's home. Their old attraction flares again but both know Jake isn't staying for long. But when his boss tumbles down some icy stairs injuring his back, and an approaching snowstorm threatens to bury the town, Jake and Victoria are stuck together, forcing them to look at their pasts and into their hearts to see if they have a second chance. And with a legendary comet possibly headed their way, one that has always brought Jake's boss good luck, how can they not have a happily-ever-after?


Christmas Stockings

Picture
_Holly Chamberlain can write love letters for others, but no decent young lady would dare write one for herself. So when her secret beloved, Grayson Clark, vicar at St. Martin in the Pines, arrives at her office with a request to write love letters for a shy friend, she suspects he is actually the friend and the letters are to the granddaughter of a baronet known to admire him. His request for her to replace an injured cast member of St. Martin's production of A Christmas Carol delights her, but the baronet's granddaughter is also in the cast, dashing any hopes Holly has for her own Christmas love story.

Grayson Clark can speak eloquently from the pulpit, but not to Holly Chamberlain, the woman he secretly loves. After all, he's just a vicar while she is the daughter of one of London's wealthiest merchants and known to be admired by an up and coming barrister. Dictating his own love letters to her may be folly but what else can he do? Having her join the cast of A Christmas Carol seemed like a miracle, but now his predecessor is insisting Grayson be attentive to a baronet's granddaughter in order to pay for St. Martin's new roof. Can't vicars have their own happily-ever afters?
After all, it's Christmas.

Set against a backdrop of late Victorian London, and a production of Charles' Dickens beloved, A Christmas Carol, Christmas Stockings brings together two people who are only shy when they are together, and whose fondest wish is about to be granted-and they don't even have to use mistletoe!

When her daughter's whimsical story and a friend's legend gives her a bit of hope, practical Eleanor must truly believe that Christmas is about the the very best magic there is: love.
