It’s Beginning to Look a Little Like the Holidays

With Halloween now over—if only for a few hours, it probably comes as no surprise that the holiday literary offerings have already begun to go under the tree.

November opens with two holiday-themed reissues by #1 New York Times bestselling authors Robyn Carr (My Kind of Christmas, Book 20 Virgin River Series) and The 24 Days of Christmas by Linda Lael Miller.

all-i-want-for-christmasLisa Renee Jones delivers a Cinderella-style holiday story with the eBook reissue of Santa, Baby. Vowing for once in her life to leave behind her inhibitions, bookshop owner Caron Avery decides to go as Marilyn Monroe for the local charity ball. While the night is still young, she realizes the scandal-plagued millionaire Baxter Remington is in hot pursuit.  Does this good girl dare think that a one-night indulgence could ever lead to love?

Meanwhile, author Candace Havens gets into the holiday spirit with Christmas with the Marine (Uniformly Hot).  Personal shopper Ainsley Garrett has plenty of customers to shop for but, unfortunately, no special man on her own list. Then she spots a handsome Marine shopping for toys, and thinks maybe, just maybe, she has finally found someone as desirable inside as he appears on the outside.

And last but not least, RaeAnne Thayne joins forces with ten fellow authors, including Debbie Macomber and Brenda Novak, for All I Want for Christmas—a collection of fourteen novellas to benefit diabetes research. Now what could be more fitting as we enter the season of giving?
