The Christmas Reunion by Lyncee Shillard

Five years ago, Joleigh Nelson turned her back on the only man she’d ever love to save her father and unborn son’s lives. Now that man may be the only one who can save her home, the New Forks animal reserve.

Spencer Thompkin has spent the last five years in an emotional wasteland.  Unable to let anyone in after Joleigh disappeared without a word.

On a routine foreclosure of an animal reserve, he finds not only Joleigh but a son he never knew about.

Can he get over the feelings of betrayal and help Joleigh save her home – the animal reserve? Or will the heartless lawyer part of him prevail leaving Joleigh homeless and without her son?

A Christmas Reunion may not even be enough to save the animal reserve and restore their love.

Hunters’ Academy: Winter Break by Ivy Hearne

Hunters' Academy: Winter Break by Ivy Hearne #ChristmasRomance #ReadSanta’s Claws have come to town…

When her boredom sends her on a run into the nearby human town, she discovers something horrific preying on the local children. But of everyone still on campus, she’s the only one who can see it—and that means she’ll have to put those hunting skills into practice much sooner than she expected.
Fans of Dragon School, Fallen Academy, Secret Keepers, Vampire Academy, and Harry Potter will love Hunters’ Academy!
Winter Break is episode 2, a short holiday special for readers of Hunters’ Academy – expect a new episode every month (and apparently some special stories in between, too!)

I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Today Romance Lives Forever features one of my books, A Romance for Christmas. I wrote this for friends, who kept telling me to publish it. I wasn’t sure there was a market for a Christmas romance in which the hero and heroine never even kiss. It was adorable, yes, but had no spice, so I set it aside for many years. Finally, I decided to go for it. This little story has been my best-selling book for many years. Who knew? I usually write science fiction and science fiction romance, even non-fiction, but this is my only contemporary book. Maybe it needs a sequel…

State Park Rangers Simon Ribault and Ellie Ironstone are used to dealing with messy campers and ravaging raccoons, but when three bodies wash up on the beach, they mobilize all their powers of deduction. Who are they and how did they get to the shore of Amelia Island? Are they connected to the secretive League of the Green Cross? Or linked to a mysterious Jamaican drug ring?
Ellie, new to Amelia Island, must penetrate a close-knit community if she wants to find answers to the mystery, all while deciding between two rivals for her affection: Thad, the handsome local idol, and Simon, the clever, quirky bookworm.
Simon, for his part, will have to call on both his well-honed research skills to solve the case and his not-so well-honed skills as a Don Juan to lure Ellie away from Thad.

Snowed In by Shannon Nemechek

I met her, the girl of my dreams. We shared a kiss, we fell in love…and then I was deployed.
Now I’m back, but I’m no longer the man I used to be. I’m injured, scarred, and chances are I might never fully recover.
My heart still belongs to her—Annabelle—but my love for her demands I let her go. She deserves more than a broken man’s love, more than what I can offer.
But now, as I stare at her beautiful face, the sight of her cracking my heart in two, I pray I can be strong enough not to succumb to temptation. Both of us need time alone with our thoughts, so we came to the one place that made us feel whole again.
Now we’re trapped in her family cabin, and I can’t help but wonder whether being snowed in with Annabelle is a wonderful mistake…or a disaster waiting to happen.

you did research for this book?
Some. I’d briefly visited the area where I set the story, though had to do a little more research for the setting.
My hero’s career as a photo journalist was inspired by watching TV news and articles I’d read.
My heroine was inspired by a dance performance I watched. I just had to write my heroine as a dancer resurrecting her career following a personal tragedy. I also based the visuals for the lead male dancer on one I’d seen in the show. Fantastic performances and I wish I still had the DVD.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
All characters are human. No pets.
this book has more than one genre?
Strictly contemporary romance
you speak more than one language?
I did learn German so long ago that I’ve forgotten most of it, and I was never a fluent speaker of the language
you grew up where you live now?
At seventeen, I left home to live in Brisbane which was over an hour away by train in those days. Living in the city meant I could walk to work in ten minutes, so much easier than the two hour plus train travel, and waiting to catch a bus home from the station, especially on cold winter nights.Then at twenty, I moved interstate and have lived in the same city since then, except for about five years where I lived in a little country town. A new experience, but again, a considerable commute each day, this time by car. I thought it ironic that I began my working career with a long daily bus and train journey and ended that career with at least two hour drive each day, and the same early mornings. Exhausting.
you love to read?
Yes. As well as romance I love to read Icelandic Noir. I’m a fan of Ragnar Jónasson’s novels.
you are never late?
I endeavour not to be late. I dislike being late when people are depending on me to keep an appointment on time, and vice versa.
you love pizza?
Yes, but it doesn’t like me. I have an intolerance to all grains so pizza is a no-no for me.
you love sushi?
I have tasted sushi in the past, some nice, some not so good. Now it is a no-no for me because of the rice. I was never a big fan of sushi anyway.
you have a pet?
No. With one Veteran husband, three adult children and their partners, one adult stepson, and four young grandsons, who needs pets?

Believe in My Heart by Maria K Alexander

Genre Contemporary Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Culinary arts student, Hope Mastriano, is down on her luck. Homeless on Thanksgiving Day, she’s caught trying to break into her cousin’s apartment by her sexy boss and lifelong secret crush.
Since getting dumped seven months ago, head chef Vinnie DiFrancesco has been in a frustrating holding pattern. He returns relaxed from a retreat, but his life is sent into a tailspin when he offers Hope, the event coordinator at his family’s trattoria, temporary housing.
With the trattoria’s traditional Italian Christmas Eve charity dinner slated to be featured on a local TV segment and things heating up in his apartment, the two must set aside their different visions to make the event a success. When a computer glitch threatens their plans, Hope proposes a risky solution.
