“A wonderful collection of contemporary Christmas tales . . . clean sweeping romance.” –Sarah E. Bradley, InD’tale Magazine

USA Today, #1 Amazon Bestselling and Multi Award-Winning Authors

Six Award-Winning Authors have contributed new stories to A Timeless Romance Anthology: Under the Mistletoe Collection. Six contemporary novellas, all adding sweet romance to the Christmas season.

In the enchanting novella FORGOTTEN KISSES by Cindy Roland Anderson, costume designer Madison Taylor has no love lost when the male lead playing Sir Lancelot in a TV series is fired. She couldn’t stand working with him anyway. But when she discovers who his replacement is, her heart nearly stops. Caleb Matthews is one of the hottest male actors ever… and not to mention Madison’s former boyfriend. When things got too serious between them, everything fell apart. And now, Madison must play nice or lose her job. She just has to forget all of the reasons she’d fallen for him in the first place.

In THE LAST CHRISTMAS, a sweet romance novella by Annette Lyon, Meredith only has to make it through the Christmas holiday pretending that she and her husband Eric aren’t on the verge of divorce. She doesn’t want to ruin the holiday for her two grown daughters and their boyfriends. But when Eric hurries home after weeks of living in a motel to unpack before their daughters arrive, he starts pressing Meredith with questions about why she filed for divorce. The last thing Meredith wants to do it give Eric a second chance, but it seems that Eric is not willing to let her go without trying to win her back.

In Julie Coulter Bellon’s captivating novella TRUTH OR DARE, after a year of recovery, wounded war veteran Jonah Harrison comes home for Christmas. No longer the outgoing high school track star, he just wants to be left alone, away from well-meaning friends and neighbors. But when a blizzard strands him with Cami Jackson—the girl who once knew him best—he can’t hide anything from her, no matter how much he wants to. Cami has a wounded heart of her own, though, and it might take a Christmas miracle for them to find the healing they both long for and the courage to reach for a chance at love.

In the charming novella HOLIDAY BUCKET LIST by Sarah M. Eden, Celeste Lagorio has officially given up on Christmas. A single mother, with her children grown and unable to return for the holiday, Celeste determines to take a break from everything. When her single neighbor and almost-best-friend, Mike Durham, discovers her non-plans, they discuss things they’ve always wanted to do, but never had time. Mike and Celeste put together a friendly competition of checking off the things on their bucket list, all the while drawing closer and discovering they have more in common than they thought.

In CHRISTMAS EVERY DAY, a delightful novella by Heather B. Moore, Monica is on the verge of buying her dream store, but when she tells her boyfriend, he turns it into an embarrassing public argument. Heartbroken, but determined to follow her dream, she goes to her employer’s Christmas party to play Mrs. Claus, only to be paired with someone unexpected. A young Mr. Claus who is the complete opposite of her ex-boyfriend in all the most important ways. Yet, Monica is not sure she can risk opening her heart again.

In Jennifer Griffith’s exciting novella FIRST (AND LAST) CHRISTMAS DATE, pilot Juliet Law has been in a holding pattern, dating the wrong guy, until she gets a holiday shake-up: old flame Tag McClintock e-mails her to ask for second date—after ten years. Their first date, back in high school, had been an unmitigated disaster culminating with Pepto Bismol and the police. Still, Juliet would have gone out with Tag again the next day—and the next—had he asked. So now that he’s finally popping up in her in-box again, Juliet must decide whether to say yes to the date, even if it puts her at risk of another decade of carrying a torch for Tag McClintock. Will their second date be their last?

#1 Amazon Bestselling Author

A world in darkness. A community united. A lunatic serial killer in their midst…

It’s day 8 of “The Event,” a week into an apocalyptic fight for survival following a mysterious nationwide blackout, and the Cold River Reservation–a safe haven for innocent men, women, and children–is under siege: from both cannibalistic invaders and a treacherous serial killer. 

A pack of unhinged criminals has holed up at Kah Nee Ta Resort; they’re drinking scotch, admiring their trophies–the heads of the tribal members they’ve murdered (and in some cases turned into stew)–and plotting a harebrained advance across the Deschutes River and into the Reservation.

Little do they know, the inhabitants of Cold River–a union of Indian and Siyapu (white) survivors–is armed and ready for them. Under the courageous leadership of Tribal Council Leader Bluefeathers and Tribal Police Lieutenant Smokey Kukup, the battle to take back sacred lands is about to begin. And Cold River has a battle plan (involving a perimeter of snipers and a tanker full of explosive fuel) so crazy it just might work. 

Despite constant attacks from “the bad men,” Aaron Standford, a former Air Force pilot who worked as a hydroelectric engineer at the Boulder Dam, manages to bring power back online with the help of a diesel generator–and a team of armed Indian comrades, now friends sheltering him and his family. Meanwhile, the satellites of the National Reconnaissance Office have picked up all the activity on the Reservation. And the Pentagon doesn’t want the country to restore order just yet…

Back on the Res, eighty-six-year old elder Martha Coeur d’Alenes knows something… something only she and Laurel, the tribal police lieutenant’s precocious 10-year-old daughter–who has inherited the shaman’s gift of seer–know. The psychopathic serial killer who has been mercilessly slaughtering entire Indian families, cloaked by the chaos of the blackout, is hiding among them. Laurel sensed him outside the parking lot where Officer Yazzie disappeared. Martha sensed him inside the clinic—the only safe space on the Reservation… And Martin Andrews, the upstanding Siyapu police chief, is summoning all the help he can get to track down the killer.

Before another family is murdered in cold blood.

“Sexy, funny, touching, and truly romantic.” —New York Times bestselling author Loretta Chase

Award-Winning Author

The spirited Wylder sisters continue to scandalize the ton in Isabella Bradford’s witty and winsome trilogy. This time, the most impulsive of the siblings meets her match: a charming rake determined to save her from an arranged marriage.

The youngest of the Wylder girls—and the last left unwed—Lady Diana is also the most willful, a trait that’s leading her ever closer to dishonorable disaster. While her family’s solution is a fast and excruciatingly respectable marriage, Diana can’t imagine being wed to the very staid and dull Lord Crump. But while wedding plans are being made, a chance meeting at a gala turns Diana’s world upside down.

A kiss from a dazzling stranger gives Diana a most intimate introduction to one of the ton’s most resolute and scandalous bachelors, the Duke of Sheffield. Torn between family duty and her heart’s desire, Diana recklessly surrenders to the headiest of passions, recognizing that she has found a kindred soul in the handsome young duke. Soon it’s clear that seduction is no longer the game: Something deep and lasting has come to bind their hearts, and the stakes are nothing less than true love.

“Pam did a wonderful job of presenting mystery, intrigue, and a good value system. Can’t wait for the next story! I will recommend this book to all of my friends who have young readers at home.” -Linda M.

Unexplained voices coming from nowhere in the middle of the night, a strange man lurking around them, a quirky great- aunt who has an obsession about a singer who has been dead for years, a homeless teen-age boy with a secret—all mysteries that twelve-year-old Mandi Ferguson must solve during her dreaded stay in Memphis, Tennessee. Much against their will, she and her twin sister have been sent from their home in California to stay with a great-aunt they barely know while their mother is on a two-week honeymoon in Europe.

There is nothing Mandi likes any better than solving mysteries and when she hears voices outside of her room during her first night in Memphis, she is convinced she is hearing ghosts, possibly Elvis Presley’s ghost since her great-aunt’s house is right behind the entertainer’s home, Graceland.

Is there a connection between the voices and the man who is spying on them? What about the homeless boy with a mysterious past who needs their help? What is Aunt Trina’s true connection to Elvis? And why doesn’t her mother call more often—is she so enamored with her new husband that she is unconcerned about her daughters?

Mysteries can be fun to solve, but as Mandi learns the answers to all of her questions, she discovers that the solutions were right in front of her all along. All she needed to do was ask.
