The Christmas Ballet by Constance Bretes

Laura Hemmingway cut herself off from men and her family when the man she loved married her sister. She moved across the country and was doing just fine until she received a devastating call to return to New York. She had to face the death of her sister, her sister’s little girl, Maria, and Maria’s father, Stefan—the man she had once loved. She figured she would pay her respects and leave as soon as possible. She never anticipated on the beautiful little girl stealing her heart. And she never expected that seeing Stefan again after twelve years would stir up old feelings.
Stefan’s life was complete. He had a successful career as an attorney, a beautiful wife, and an adorable six-year-old daughter. Although he and his wife had been married in name only for the past several years, he cared for her deeply. Then her unexpected death brought him face-to-face with his former lover, and the guilt he’d carried for years.
Stefan is still in love with Laura and wants to give her everything she deserves. He and Maria are racing against time to convince Laura to stay with them in New York.
Can a little girl’s love, and the true magic of Christmas, help Stefan convince Laura to stay and give their relationship another chance?

Like fate, the songwriters’ muse nudged Giselle and Ethan together. But can Giselle overcome her fears and can Ethan get past the darkness that surrounds him, so they can find love?

Christmas Revels VI: Four Regency Novellas by Hannah Meredith, et al.Luanna Stewart

(Other authors include Anna Allen, Kate Parker, and Louisa Cornell)

Come revel with four award-winning authors for Christmas tales filled with laughter, tears, and love…

Her Ladyship Orders A Christmas Tree–Scandal and outrage descend on the village! Her Ladyship wants a pagan Christmas tree placed in the Hall. If the vicar’s daughter is to avert an insurrection, she must enlist the new steward’s help before Christmas–and a royal visitor–arrive.

“The Play’s The Thing…” A Christmas house party. An amateur theatrical. Two people who have assumed false roles even before the festivities begin. Lies and misdirection lead to an improbable attraction, and no one knows how the drama will end.

Yuletide Treachery–An awkward young woman and the disfigured host of the house party she’s attending join forces to unmask a traitor. Among the guests is the man who brutally beat the host and left him for dead in France. Can discovering the assailant lead two lonely people to love?

A Perfectly Unexpected Christmas–When a dissolute gentleman attempts to return to his abandoned wife for his daughter’s christening, a riding accident results in amnesia. An exacting routine is recommended, and if he can survive his wife’s regimen, he might have a home for Christmas. Forever.

If Wishes Were Earls by Luanna Stewart

Her wish will be granted…Love Christmas Romance? Authors share their best @ConstanceBretes @DarylDevore @RomanceRegency @Luanna_Stewart #ChristmasRomance #RLFblog

When a mysterious note directs Miss Miranda Large to a tiny village in Cornwall to find her heart’s desire, she’d be a fool to not go. The excitement mounts when she meets a strange shopkeeper who claims that a magical keepsake will make possible her dream of marriage to a man with a title. But a snowstorm forces her to accept the hospitality of a sullen earl and Miranda fears she’s made a horrible mistake.

He’s given up hope…

Edward Penhallion, the 12th Earl of Claverlock, is not in the mood to search for yet another wife. He longs to be left alone with his books and his dreams of revenge. But the arrival of a headstrong, sharp-tongued spinster forces him to play the charming host. Not a difficult task, given her intelligence and beauty.

As the blizzard rages, Edward discovers there’s more to Miranda than a lively wit and a lovely face. And Miranda wonders if the trappings of

Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 by Milou Koenings @MilouKoenings #RLFblog #NewRelease #sweetromanceMilou Koenings, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 by Milou Koenings

Genre Sweet Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG
When a supermodel with a string of bad news boyfriends “wins” a volunteer firefighter at a charity bachelor auction, Rose and Ryan might both discover they’ve found their perfect Christmas match. A fun and romantic holiday tale set in the fictional town of Green Pines, Illinois.
The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction is part of Sweet Christmas Kisses 5, a box set of nince sweet romance novellas, from USA Today, Publisher’s Weekly, and award-winning authors. Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 brings you heartwarming contemporary romances that celebrate the joy of the season around the world, including in snowy Maine and the sun-kissed skies of Florida, the mountains of Colorado, small-town Illinois and South Carolina, New York to San Francisco, and even the glittering lights of Paris and the old-world charm of Florence. The Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 bundle features all-new, standalone novellas that will make you smile and fill your heart with the Christmas spirit.
Why did you write this book?
The book was spark by a conversation I overheard when I was standing in line somewhere. The two women waiting in front me were sharing the stories of how they’d met their husbands. One of them said that she’d met hers when her friends “bought” him for her at a bachelor auction. Well, that was just too good a scenario not to make it into a book someday! The idea was percolating in my mind for a long time. So, when I was invited to be part of the Sweet Christmas Kisses 5, a box set of nine standalone novellas, I thought this was the perfect time to write it. What better Christmas gift than true love?
The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction is the sixth book in the Green Pines Romance series. The hero appeared in the very first book in that series, when he was just a troubled teenager. I loved him then and always wondered what kind of man he’d grow into and how he’d get his life together. It was so gratifying to discover that he’d turned into such a great guy!
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, of course. Love’s the greatest gift, so who wouldn’t want to read about it? Plus, the older I get, the more I crave those happy endings.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That depends on what I’m reading at any given moment. Right now, I’m loving Molly Weasley all over again. (It’s my annual Harry Potter binge-reading month!)
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m busy writing a brand-new sweet romance series to be released early next year. It’s a trilogy focused on three friends who go into business together. I’m having a lot of fun with it.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
In October, I’m launching The Gift of Yesterday, which is actually book five of the Green Pines Romance series. The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction will be out as a stand-alone in November (although you can’t beat the Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 deal–nine books for the price of one–so get it now!). The new series is slated for release early next year, which should also see the release of the next Green Pines novel.

This quick interview includes info about the author, and
introduces the story.

About the Author

Award-winning
author, Vicki Batman, has sold many romantic comedy works to the True
magazines, several publishers, and most recently, two romantic comedy mysteries
to The Wild Rose Press. She is a member of Romance Writers of America,
Sisters in Crime, and several writing groups. An avid Jazzerciser. Handbag
lover. Mahjong player. Yoga practitioner. Movie fan. Book devourer.
Chocoaholic. Best Mom ever. And adores Handsome Hubby. Most days begin with her hands set to the
keyboard and thinking “What if??”

Interview with Vicki Batman

Why did you write
this book?
Last year, I was asked to participate in the Season of Magic
holiday anthology. It did really really well and when asked to participate
again, I said yes. But I wrote this particular story because of my love for
handbags, specifically Enid Collins bags. They are wonderful stenciled and
jeweled creations originally sold through Neiman Marcus. I love them. And
created my own brand with a design for this holiday story.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
I cut my teeth on mysteries like the Bobbsey Twins, Nancy
Drew and Trixie Belden; so I am a huge mystery fan. I also like contemporary
romance, especially with a touch of humor. And historical romances sweep me
away like a Calgon moment.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I love wacky Stephanie Plum but mostly because Janet E.
writes stories with humor. When I finished my first one to read, Four to Score,
I fell in love with Janet E’s humor and said, “Finally.”
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m doing edits on Temporarily Insane, a romantic comedy
mystery. AND yes, there will be another holiday anthology next year. Mine is
tentatively entitled The Littliest Angel. I have a great backstory to share. I
have a few more stories banked and I’m looking for a good spot for them.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
