MELT By Shaya Roy
Blurb: Newlyweds in an arranged marriage, Naina and Dev go to the mountains of Shimla, India in search of snow. Unfortunately, they find fifteen inches more than they expected.
Being snowed in with her husband is not necessarily a bad thing. It gives Naina an excellent excuse to snuggle up to her deep, quiet man, but every time Dev spurns her, a little more of her heart drips away. Melting the ice around her husband’s heart before the snow outside does might take more pride than Naina’s ready to surrender.
ONE IN A MILLION SNOWFLAKES By Michelle Ziegler
Blurb: Angela is in love with someone she can never have--her best friend, Rebecca’s older brother.
Stranded in the bitter cold after a disastrous blind date with yet another company Christmas party looming, a standing offer from the boss’ nephew gets a little more appealing. Desperation. Not a good sign. Surely when Rebecca rescues her from the blinding snow, she can also convince Angela to just go to the party alone. She can always count on her best friend.
That is, as long as she never finds out about Angela’s secret crush.
AN UNEXPECTED WREATH By Annabelle Blume
Blurb: Stella’s got everything she needs in life: a great job, a beautiful house, and her independence. But on last minute trip to the local Christmas tree lot she finds something, or rather someone, she desperately wants - Grayson. An emergency trip to Target, an unexpected wreath, and a little Christmas magic make the season much brighter.
SANTA BEBE By Lily Carlyle
Blurb: Disillusioned by men and her belief that they see her only as an object, Bebe is determined to find a man with money. Her geeky, but unfailingly kind, next-door neighbor James tries to convince her of the possibility of real love, even as she reveals to him the troubled childhood that made her so cynical about relationships. When her mother dashes her hopes for a perfect Christmas, Bebe finds herself turning to James once again, and in the process, learning a lot about herself and the promise their relationship holds.
SANTA BEBE Excerpt:
He raised a forkful of jambalaya to his mouth, but paused before eating. “Well, now that I’ve told you how dysfunctional my family is, would you like to join us for Christmas?”
“For Christmas? Seriously?”
“Yeah, why not? I’ll have more fun with you there.”
“But, it’s a family holiday—”
“My sisters are always bringing their latest boyfriends. My mom will be happy to see me with someone.”
A small frisson of foreboding rose. “She won’t think we’re—”
He laughed. “Of course she will. She’s a mom, after all, and wants all her kids happily married, producing grandchildren for her to spoil. But, she won’t make too big a deal. My mother is nothing if not polite.”
Perhaps it was the half glass of wine on an empty stomach, or perhaps it was his unfailing kindness to me—not just that night, but many times over the past three years—that made me answer without hesitation. “Thanks. I’d love to.”
