Here are two holiday novellas from the popular Copper Mountain Christmas series for FREE:
Annie Prudhomme never expected to be back in Marietta, MT and her family is fond of reminding her that she left them and the town behind in search of better things. A humiliating divorce that cost her everything she’d gained has driven her back home and her family isn’t about to welcome her back into the fold. She’s in town to rebuild the old home that she inherited and to move on once again.
Carson Scott never forgot Annie or the way she left. Now that she’s back in town he’s realizing that the old flame still burns hot but he can’t risk his heart the way he did last time now that he has his son to think about it. Being trapped together during a December snowstorm gives them a chance to rekindle their romance but is Annie back for good or is she just looking for a cowboy for Christmas?
Spending a quiet Christmas housesitting and reading novels about hot cowboys sounds perfect to Caitlin Butler. Until a stray kitten brings her face-to-face with Noah, her crush from college. Watching the handsome vet in action melts Caitlin’s heart and brings back long forgotten emotion. She would be safer back at the house lost in the pages of a book. But a toe-curling mistletoe kiss tempts her to stay. Maybe she won’t be spending this Christmas… alone.
Veterinarian Noah Sullivan isn’t a Scrooge, but the Christmas Eve tradition of hanging mistletoe in the clinic’s waiting room annoys him. Kissing doesn’t belong at the Copper Mountain Animal Hospital. Noah rethinks his position when Caitlin arrives with a stray kitten she found freezing in the snow. All he wants now is to maneuver the pretty preschool teacher under the mistletoe. If he’s not careful, he’ll wind up on Santa’s naughty list.
I’m totally hooked on Alexandra Ivy & Laura Wright’s HOT HOT HOT paranormal Bayou Heat series. Here’s a holiday novella, Bayou Noël , that is their gift to you!

She has no idea that writing a letter of resignation will bring Garrick back to the Wildlands.
It will take a miracle to bring them together
Garrick can’t believe that Molly is willing to walk away. She’s not only become irreplaceable to his mother, but he’s become addicted to her letters when he was far away from home. He’ll be damned if he is going to let her slip away. But once back in the Wildlands, Garrick is forced to choose between opening his heart to the female he loves or risk losing her forever.

I really enjoyed Lisa Plumley‘s newest contemporary romance, So Irresitible, so am really pleased to see that her Josie Day Is Coming Home is being offered for FREE! (I count this as a gift from Amazon & Plumley to me, thank you!)
USA Today bestselling author Lisa Plumley does it again with another sparkling, sexy novel of crazy coincidences–and crazier love…
Her name was Josie, she was a showgirl…
…until the night she Heimliched a martini olive out of fabulously wealthy and eccentric casino owner Tallulah Carlyle. Now Josie Day–proud new owner of one of Tallulah’s spare estates–is leaving Vegas behind for…Donovan’s Corner, Arizona? Ironically, her “reward” has brought her right back to the dusty hometown she thought she’d left behind forever. Still, Josie’s ready to prove there’s more to her than feathers and a wicked rumba. She plans to sell the old mansion and use the profits to open a dance school. But first, she’ll have to figure out some fancy footwork to avoid knocking heads–and other things–with caretaker and local bad boy Luke Donovan…
It isn’t every day a woman like Josie comes strutting into town–which is fortunate, since her presence on the estate has Luke hotter and more bothered than he’s been since, well, ever. He’s a little annoyed with his Aunt Tallulah, though. This was supposed to be his property to renovate and sell–an opportunity to make good after being cut off from the family fortune. But Josie doesn’t have to know that…at least not until Luke figures out a way to make both their dreams come true–and prove that Vegas isn’t the only place where taking a chance can change everything…
Maggie Shayne is one of those authors I just admire the heck out of. I love her paranormal romances and have just begun reading her more traditional contemporary romance novels. Texas Homecoming from the Texas Brand series is a new one to me and is FREE right now!
A HEART YEARNS
Luke Brand wishes for what he’s never had–family. Aside from an overprotective mother who died young, he’s never had that–until he drives his rig into Quinn, Texas to meet the family he’s never known. His cousins welcome him with open arms. 3 months later he’s still there, selling his semi to buy an abandoned house for back taxes, dreaming of settling down with a wholesome woman and raising some kids of his own.
Jasmine is not wholesome. She’s a waitress and sometimes exotic dancer at a Chicago club. A classically trained dancer, Jasmine doesn’t mind doing what she has to. It’s all for her son, Baxter. She’d do anything to protect him from the world.
When Baxter witnesses a murder at the club and becomes a target himself, Jasmine takes him and runs. Posing as her best friend, shot dead by the same killer who’s after Bax, she heads for Texas to hole up in the house her roomie inherited but wanted no part of. The only problem with her plan is the sexy cowboy who’s already living there.
Fans of movies like Hope Floats, Sweet Home Alabama, and The Cowboy Way and novels like Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold series will love Maggie Shayne’s TEXAS BRANDS.

Vampire Amaury LeSang is cursed to feel everybody’s emotions like a permanent migraine. The only way to alleviate the pain is through sex. When he meets the feisty human woman Nina, a cure for his ailment seems within reach: in her presence all pain vanishes.
Unfortunately, Nina is out to kill him because she believes he’s involved in her brother’s death. And she would succeed if only Amaury’s bad boy charm didn’t play havoc with her hormones and catapulted her into his arms and his bed every time she was near him.
As every kiss brings them physically closer, danger is lurking and threatens to destroy the little trust they have in each other.

Despite the intimacies they share, Gabriel fears that if he ever reveals himself fully to her, Maya will react like other women have, running from him, and calling him a monster, a freak, a creature not worth her love.
Will Maya prove to be the one female who cherishes all that Gabriel is?

A Fine Romance by Christi Barth is a romance that just looks like a FUN read. It’s the second book in her Aisle Bound series and is available now for just $1.99.
They say you form your first impression of someone within thirty seconds of meeting them. Or, in Mira Parrish’s case, within thirty minutes of not meeting them, when said person is supposed to pick you up from the airport and never shows. This is not a perfect start to her new life. Her friend Ivy is depending on her to run a new romance store, and Mira can’t afford to let her down.
Sam Lyons should probably apologize. But every time he sees Mira–which is often, since his family owns the bakery next to her shop–he can’t resist antagonizing her. There’s something about the sexy, straight-laced woman that drives him crazy. He can’t get involved, though. He has too much baggage to be any good in a serious relationship.
Despite his teasing attitude, Mira finds Sam too sweet to resist. (His hot body may be a factor.) But if there’s going to be anything permanent between them, they’ll need to let go of their pasts and look to the future…
I always need to warn friends when I begin reading a book by Kimberly Raye as I know I’ll soon be laughing out loud! Right now, The Devil’s in the Details is being offered for just $1.99. Buy it and get your paranormal laugh on!
Jess Damon’s life is…complicated. Not only is she a man-eating succubus (albeit recently reformed), but she has the mother from hell—literally. Yep, Houston’s hottest wedding planner is the daughter of the devil. Though as far as her mother knows, Jess is only in the business to hook up with hunky groomsmen, not to find true love.
But when demon hunter Cutter Owens rolls into town, turning her back on her evil birthright proves harder than Jess thought. Cutter is out to take down the devil once and for all—and he wants Jess’s help to do it. There’s no denying Cutter is gorgeous, in that sexy “a demon stole my soul” sort of way. And, sure, Lillian Damon is the queen of evil. But she’s still Jess’s mom. Now Jess must outfox the world’s greatest demon hunter without revealing her true identity or—devil forbid!—falling in love. Sexy, funny, and fiendishly clever, this bewitching paranormal romance is one hell of a read.
