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.

About the Author

Milou Koenings is an award-winning USA Today bestselling author who writes romance because, like chocolate, stories with happy endings bring joy to the world and so make it a better place.
She’s lived all over the world, working as a freelance travel and technology writer, but loves to stay home with her family more than anything.

Interview with Milou Koenings

Why did you write this book?
This is a collaborative effort by 17 authors from Sweet Romance Reads. We banded together to create a boxed set of holiday novellas. It was a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit as early as possible.
My novella, The Kampala Peppermint Twist, is another installment in my Green Pines Romance series. It comes from growing up in Africa and is partly a reflection on how we create our own holiday spirit when we’re not surrounded by all the commercial reminders. But of course, bottom line, it’s a romance!
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance and more romance, please. With an occasional spy thriller in there to shake things up. The older I get, the more I want a guaranteed happy ending when I pick up a book.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’ve got so many favorites! But I just love Juliet Ashton, from the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I reread that book every year (along with all the Harry Potters in a row). She’s strong, funny, bright, hopeful in the face of adversity; kind, with such a big heart — and hopelessly befuddled when it comes to her own romance.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on another Green Pines Romance, and developing another series.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 2 

About the Author

Milou Koenings writes romance because,
like chocolate, stories with happy endings bring joy to the world and so make
it a better place.
She’s lived all over the world,
working as an intellectual property lawyer and freelance travel and technology
writer, but loves to stay home with her family more than anything.

Interview with Milou Koenings

Why
did you write this book?
Sweet romance and
holidays just seem to go together so well! This is a group project by 19 authors
from Sweet Romance Reads. We banded together to create a boxed set of holiday
novellas.  It was a fun way to get into
the Christmas spirit as early as possible. My contribution, Sweet Blizzard, is
another installment in my Green Pines Romance series. The story spun itself
after I came across my grandmother’s holiday spice cookie recipe.
What
is your favorite genre to read?
Romance, but as long as
a book has a good love story in it, I’ll read any genre – from contemporary
romance, to historicals or political thrillers.
Who
is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That’s a tough one.  Hermione Granger or Lisbeth Salander? Neither
of them are romantic heroines!  Sticking
to romantic heroines, I’ll vote for the little known Jean Paget from A Town
Like Alice by Nevil Shute. She’s strong, tough, kind – and based on the
war-time experiences of a group of real-life heroines that included my great-aunt.
What
are you working on at the moment, and what will we see from you in coming
months?
I’m working on another a
Green Pines Romance, a prequel to my novel Reclaiming Home, as well on as a
brand new series.
