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.
