Enjoy the Half-Moon Hollow Christmas novella, I'm Dreaming of an Undead Christmas by Molly Harper from Audible.com - for free! I really love this author's humorous (and ever so slightly snarky take) on all things paranormal in her Jane Jameson, Half Moon Hollow, and Naked Werewolf series - and thought you might enjoy this holiday gift from her.

It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow. And then there's the small matter of the handsome, frustrating vampire who keeps appearing in Gigi's peripheral vision, then disappearing before she can talk to him. Can the Scanlon sisters negotiate romantic problems, vampire politics, and Christmas cookie disasters and enjoy a relatively normal holiday?


M. Malone has a very special present for all her readers. That's right, she's written a holiday novella and is is giving it to all of you for FREE! Christmas with The Alexanders is a really nice read, and falls just after book three in her The Alexanders series. However it's not a stand-alone story, so you really should read the rest of the books too (and Teasing Trent, the series prequel is offered free right now too (click on link, or download Surrender collection below). So Merry Christmas a little early from bestselling author, M (Minx) Malone.

Kaylee Wilhelm knows what she wants for Christmas--for Elliott Alexander to notice her. Unfortunately, he doesn't like her much, so she's spending the holidays with her disapproving parents.

Elliott Alexander is finally in the position to come home for good. Home means bittersweet memories and the only woman who makes him feel things he isn't ready for.

When Kay's car skids out of control on Christmas Eve, she's forced to reach out to the only man she trusts to save her. Eli's a protector, so she knows he'll come for her, but this Christmas Kay is hoping for a little bit more.


All I Want for Christmas is You (Fate with a Helping Hand) by Lisa Mondello is a sweet contemporary holiday romance. I read it last year and had to grab a few Kleenexes. It's the first book in Mondello's, Fate with a Helping Hand, eeries and is offered for FREE right now.

Sometimes fate needs a little hand...
Santa Claus is going to have a rough season... Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That's why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn't Santa's bag.

But this Santa has a plan...
Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.

Building a house is easy. Building someone's trust is a whole other story. But with a little helping hand, a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.

Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the hour Eleanor's baby will arrive, to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match.

Events take place after the close of The Duke's Perfect Wife (before the Epilogue).

Kenna's court docket is full, Dani's hiding from her in-laws, Paige and Annie are about to burst from pregnancy, and Marshall is breaking up fights at the PTA Christmas Concert. The sweet potato casserole is made, the ham and biscuits are on the table, and men are losing their shirts - and not because of bets placed with the Rose Sisters! All the while, the entire town is wondering one thing: who is the Secret Santa that showed up with special gifts for everyone?



I read this holiday novella, Bah, Humbug! (A Christmas Street Romantic Comedy Novella), last year and just found it a tremendous amount of fun. It was the first book, but not the last, book I read by Heather Horrocks and I do recommend it this holiday season to you!

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block--until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it’s the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain’s weapon will fit inside a snowman's body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi’s next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.
















This was one of the first holiday collections that I read this season and it's still one of my absolute favorites. I know I'll be re-reading Love on Main Street: A Snow Creek Christmas by Adrienne Bell, Juliet Blackwell, Cecilia Gray, Rachael Herron, Lisa Hughey, Ruby Laska, and LGC Smith season after season as these heart-warming tales just are so enticing. Each of these novellas offer you a different perspective of one of the wonderful residents of Snow Creek - and I hope that these authors will revisit this locale again and I want MORE! So treat yourself to the perfect holiday gift and visit this little California town that offers love, magic, and more! (see review)

Unfortunately, her hunky cowboy landlord, Joe, has other plans for the space, which hasn’t turned a profit in years. Neither Joe nor Serafina believe in magic, much less romance. But when a Yule log is tossed on the fire, Serafina begins seeing things in her aunt’s deck of cards, and Joe’s niece goes missing…they might just have to change their minds.

THE HOLIDAY SHOW BY LGC SMITH

SECOND CHANCES BY ADRIENNE BELL
There’s no doubt in Eileen Ledger’s mind that the last time she saw hockey superstar Paul McAlester she made the biggest mistake of her life.

But ten years later, Paul is back in town for Christmas, and Eileen has a second chance to make things right…as long as she can keep herself from falling in love again.

Knitting has always served as a distraction, something that Clara can hide behind. After a significant weight loss, though, she's still not sure if she wants to be noticed.

Cynthia Eden's holiday novella A Vampire's Christmas Carol is a wonderful retelling of Dickens' story - with the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future portrayed by a demon, angel (or is she?), and shifter. Here's my review.

It's time for a dark and sexy take on a classic holiday tale...

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden heats up the holidays with...A VAMPIRE'S CHRISTMAS CAROL.

This holiday season has bite.

Ben Prescott hates Christmas--he's a vampire, and to him, there's certainly nothing jolly about the holiday season. While the humans are running around being merry, he's hunting in the shadows. Ben plans to spend the holidays his way...by stalking deadly prey.

But fate has other plans for Ben.

Three visitors are coming Ben's way...A demon who will force Ben to face his past, a ghost who will show Ben the present he could have, and a shifter who will reveal the darkness that waits in Ben's future. Unless Ben can change his ways, he may just turn into a real monster, one who can't be saved by anyone or anything.

'Tis the season...to be undead.

Ben's redemption rests in the hands of the one woman he loved and lost--Simone Laurent. If Ben is going to have a chance at being more than just the beast in the darkness, he has to prove himself to the lovely Simone. A very hard task, considering that, once upon a Christmas Eve, Simone died in Ben's arms...

Now, Ben will do anything necessary in order to possess Simone once
again. He won't lose her. Even if he has to fight heaven and hell.
