Welcome Emily Mims, author of Mistletoe, a new contemporary Christmas romance.
Why did you write this book?
I love Christmas stories and enjoy reading them year-round. Tanner and Caitlyn both appeared in earlier installments of the Smoky Blue series and cried out for a story of their own.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romance and romantic suspense
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Eve Dallas, without a doubt! She’s the lead in J.D. Robb’s ‘In Death’ series.
What are you working on at the moment?
I just finished ‘Violet’, the sequel to ‘Mistletoe, and will begin plotting a novella to fit between ‘Violet’ and ‘Amethyst’.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
‘Violet’ will be out sometime in the spring. There will probably be a novella giving Lexi Barstow and Collins Wentworth their long-awaited happily ever after before I write ‘Amethyst’, which was supposed to be the last book in the Smoky Blue series.
Please tell us about your latest book.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): spicy
Aspiring songwriter Caitlyn Murphy is tired of sister’s hand-me-downs. From toys and bicycles to men, it seemed like everything in Caitlyn’s life first belonged to her late sister. Roped into doing Christmas for motherless nieces, and entering into a pretend romance with their dangerously attractive father, Caitlyn soon finds herself falling in love with the girls, and the enigmatic Tanner Dyson. She resists the temptation and Tanner’s insistence that they make their pretend relationship real. She wants her own family, not the one her sister had first.
She Always Wanted
Tanner Dyson doesn’t get why he is so attracted to his overweight, opinionated sister-in-law. She wants love and the whole romance thing, emotions that died with his late wife. He wants a woman who is nice to have around, and he can’t understand why that isn’t that enough for Caitlyn. Worried their pretend relationship will wither and die come the new year, Tanner is surprised to find the magic of the holiday season gives them the gift of a new love neither expected, but both need.
