Christmas in Meadow Creek by Katy Eeten

Sarah Laughlin left her big-city life and dead-end relationship behind for a fresh start as a fourth-grade teacher in the small, Wisconsin town of Meadow Creek. And it feels like home, too, despite the persistent troublemaker in her class and the lack of familiar faces. But the holidays are going to be lonely this year. Until she meets firefighter Lincoln Thompson. Suddenly, the hope of spending Christmas with someone she cares about is within reach.
Lincoln loves his home town of Meadow Creek, but ever since his long-time girlfriend left him for a better life in the city, he wonders if he’ll ever find love in this small town where everyone knows everyone. Then he meets Sarah during her class’s field trip to his firehouse, and a spark is lit. But when they discover that Sarah’s troublemaking student is none other than Lincoln’s beloved nephew, their newfound relationship is put to the test. Can they navigate through the complexities of family dynamics to find a love that will last?

Once Upon a Christmas Feast: Stories, Menus, and Recipes for a Victorian Christmas Feast (Once Upon a Wedding) by Kelly McClymer

Have you ever wanted to attend a Victorian Christmas celebration? Well now you can, in Once Upon a Christmas Feast you not only get an original story, but menus, recipes, favorite Victorian Christmas stories and songs.
What’s in this jam-packed Victorian Christmas celebration of a tome?
First: an original Once Upon a Wedding short story. “Once Upon a Fairytale Christmas.”
The Duchess of Keystone is an unconventional woman who loves fairytales and happily ever after endings. When it comes to Christmas, she loves nothing better than to have her family gathered at her estate enjoying Christmas joy, food, games, and entertainment.
This year, her niece Margause arrives to view the wonder of a fairytale Christmas celebration. At three, Margause loves to slip into the library of the ducal estate, where her parents fell in love, and peruse the books she hopes to read one day soon.
Observant and advanced for her age, Margause notices that her aunts and uncles are not as happy as they should be about her Aunt Kate’s upcoming Twelfth Night wedding to a handsome, charming Irish rogue. She also doesn’t understand why her mother’s former governess Katherine tries so hard to cheer up Scroogish Sir Robert. It seems obvious to Margause that Sir Robert would need Mr. Dicken’s three ghosts to make him feel any Christmas joy.
But then, what else does the Duchess of Keystone offer everyone, but a chance at a fairytale Christmas, where miracles happen around every corner.
Next: An Appendix of traditional Victorian Christmas stories and essays by Charles Dickens…what? You didn’t know “A Christmas Carol” wasn’t his only Christmas story? Nope. Dickens, along with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, are actually responsible for making Christmas the holiday we celebrate today. You’ll also find it handy to have the lyrics to several Christmas favorite songs, so you can make sure to lead your family in rounds of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” without messing up the lyrics.
All in all, Once Upon a Christmas Feast is your guide to celebrating a very Victorian Christmas.

The Christmas of a Countess by Linda Rae Sande

A sensual tale of a couple’s first holiday away from home…
The Year with No Summer is drawing to a close, bleeding into a harsh winter that promises snow, ice and continued hardship. London, so rich with life and bustle, is quiet beneath the ice, buried in a cold few can ever truly recall happening before. Many of the ton are taking their leave for the Christmas holiday, abandoning the soggy streets of London for even chillier country roads.
Milton Grandby, Earl of Torrington, believes that now is the perfect time to introduce his new bride, Adele, to his ancestral hunting lodge and seat of his Earldom in Northumberland. A private getaway nestled in glistening snow can lead to all sorts of enjoyment… and hopefully, an heir.
With excitement in the air and Christmas fast approaching, the newlyweds make plans to travel north. While no family will be invited to the Torrington lodge, the Earl will bring his valet, Alonyius Banks, and Adele will be accompanied by Alice Simpkins, her rather grumpy lady’s maid.
Yet when The Lord and His Lady arrive at Torrington Park sans their servants, things take a decided turn and quickly become intimately awkward. While Milton is more than happy to play lady’s maid to his bride, the close confines and frigid air bring secrets to the front—and mistrust to the surface. As the duo learns more about each other’s pasts, they discover struggles and misunderstandings abound.
Can they look beyond their flaws and allow the spirit of the season and the gift of giving to thaw the sudden ice between them? Or will their first holiday away doom their new-found devotion? The budding romance of their servants may provide the answer in “The Christmas of a Countess”.

Christmastime on Donner’s Mountain by Laura Strickland

For most of her life, Becca Monroe’s been running. The urge to see what lay beyond the next horizon took her away from Donner’s Mountain and the man she loved. Now, back for what will surely be her grandfather’s last Christmas, she’s caught in a tangle of unresolved emotions that leave her torn between the impulse to flee and the desire to stay.
Jack Donner never stopped loving Becca, even though she deserted him. Better than anyone else, he knows how cruel it would be to fetter her wild spirit, and he doubts she could ever be happy living in one place, on his mountain.
Can memories of Christmases past remind Becca what truly matters? And can love convince Jack to give her one more chance, even if it means risking his battered heart?

Northern Magic by Laura Strickland

When Santa asks his worker, Olja, to help make another elf’s Christmas wish come true, she believes the job calls for a love potion. Brewing it up will require her to travel all around the North Pole gathering unusual supplies, and to take a few dangerous risks. But she’s never failed Santa in the past and doesn’t intend to now.
Elf Runi’s in the business of guiding Santa’s sleigh and making other people’s wishes come true. This year he’s dared make a wish of his own, one from the heart. When he meets Olja, he hopes he’s found his forever. But it will take assistance from a reindeer, a generous helping of love and a whole lot of magic to make his wish come true. That is, if Olja and Runi can just outwit the three troublesome trolls who decide they’d make a fine winter’s snack.

The Twelfth Night Wager by Regan Walker

The Redheaded Rake
It was a dull day at White’s the day he agreed to the wager: seduce, bed and walk away from the lovely Lady Leisterfield, all by Twelfth Night. But this holiday season, Christopher St. Ives, Viscount Eustace, planned to give himself a gift.
The Virtuous Widow
She was too proper by half—or so was the accusation of her friends, which was why her father had found her a husband. But Lord Leisterfield was now gone a year, and Grace was at last shedding the drab colors of mourning. The house felt empty, more so during the coming Christmastide, and so tonight would begin with a scandalous piece of theater. The play would attract rogues, or so promised her friend the dowager countess. Rogues, indeed. The night would preface the greatest danger—and the greatest happiness—that Grace had ever known.

Is It True: Blast from Her Past by Katy Eeten @KatyEeten #RLFblog #RomanceWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Katy Eeten, author of Blast From her Past, a contemporary inspirational romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Blast from Her Past

Genre: Inspirational Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

After a disastrous failed engagement, Sydney Hampson is leaving her past—and her faith—behind to focus on her career instead. Following through with her new, albeit misguided, resolution proves easier said than done when former classmate, and reformed bully, Grant Williams signs on with her company, and they must work closely together.
Grant Williams gave up his teenage antics years ago, and now he’s looking forward to a future that includes a strong relationship with God. When he realizes he’ll be working with none other than Sydney Hampson—the girl he had a secret crush on throughout high school—he couldn’t be more thrilled. Until he discovers she’s not the same caring, compassionate woman she used to be.
When a business trip gone awry leaves the pair stranded in the middle of a snowstorm, Grant sees his chance to make things right and put their past wrongs behind them…if only Sydney can get over her distrust of men. And with a conniving coworker intent on destroying Sydney’s happiness, can she put her faith back in God and learn to trust in Grant before she loses her chance at happiness?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Yes.
this book is part of a series?
No, it’s a stand-alone.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes. I have a full-time job and two school-age kids, so I have to squeeze in writing sessions when I can – even late at night.
you did research for this book?
Yes, but only small stuff. For example, I had to find out if people in North Dakota call it “soda” or “pop,” what could cause a car to suddenly break down, and the distance between various locations in the Dakota states.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
No. All humans.
this book has more than one genre?
No. It’s a straight-up Christian romance.
you speak more than one language?
No. I did take four years of Spanish in high school and two semesters in college, but that was a while ago and I’ve not put it to use.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes. I moved away for several years, but just last year I moved back and bought a house in the same city where I grew up.
you love to read?
Yes, but I don’t have a lot of time to do so and it takes a while for me to get sucked into a book. Once I am, I can’t put it down!
you are never late?
Well … I used to be overly punctual. Now that I have kids, I’m typically just on time (if I’m lucky!).
you love pizza?
Yes!
you love sushi?
No. Never had it and never want to. I’m not very adventurous and I don’t like seafood of any kind.
you have a pet?
No. Just two kids.
