part of an anthology of holiday novellas as part of a marketing event. I said, “Of course!” Did I have a holiday
novella? No, I did not. Was it September when she asked and all
content was due in November? Yes, yes it
was. The result of my feverish typing
and carpal tunnel syndrome was Oh, Holy
Night. This fun romance about a
freelance graphic designer and the cute guy she keeps meeting at her local
Starbucks somehow managed to end up also being about a bank robbery, friendship
and recovering from grief. But despite
the record breaking pace I actually enjoyed my little holiday story and I
decided that I wanted to do it again. Just… not quite so fast.
Romance novella also features a teeny
bit of crime, a helping of romance, and a dog.
Because I like dogs. This time our intrepid heroine is a college student
Blue Jones and the square jawed hero is local TV news cameraman Jake Garner. And the dog is an adorable French Bulldog
named Jacques who disapproves of almost everything. If you’re looking for some Christmas
adventures please feel free to indulge in these holiday treats. They’re calorie free.
12/4 –Blue Jones just stole Jake
Garner’s dog. And his heart. But technically the French Bulldog, Jacques,
belongs to Jake’s ex-girlfriend. And soon Jake is being pressured to return the
dog and Blue is being targeted by mysterious attackers. Can Jake find Blue and
Jacques before her stalkers do? For Blue, Christmas has never been quite so
dangerous. For Jake, Christmas has never been quite so Blue.
now – Christmas is a lot more dangerous than it used to be. Graphic
designer Violet Harper is usually found at her local Starbucks. Handsome Roman
Knox is usually carrying a gun. But tonight they’re both in a bank and there’s
a body on the floor. It’s a mess, a robbery and almost the worst day ever, but
maybe a Christmas miracle can get them out of the bank and into love. Join Violet and Roman as they try to figure out the rules to modern dating and bank robbery.
