Christmas in July

Now that it’s heating up, let’s see if we can cool it down, hmm? Maybe a little Christmas in July talk will do the trick. I’ve finally got those giveaway winners I promised you! First of all, I just want to say thank you to everyone who sent me titles. They were so fun to go through. I even shared them with family and ended up having my husband help me pick the winners.

As we get to those titles, I thought I’d share just a little of the premise for my Christmas releases this year. 🙂 I’m going to write 5-6 short stories and you can probably guess that they will all contained mistletoe. (I mean really, who doesn’t love that tradition?) So… here’s the idea.

The series? It’s going to be called “It’s All About the Mistletoe”

The premise? We’re going a little different with a small town class reunion. Our group of girls are having their ten year reunion, but are all still single. In their town, rather than doing something in the summer, it’s customary to hold a Christmas Ball and these poor girls decide they simply can’t show up empty handed. (At least in the man department.)

With that in mind, here are my titles and the tropes I’ll be writing about:

Mistletoe Mayhem (fake fiance)
Mister Mistletoe (enemies to lovers)
Mistletoe Magic (falling for her best friend’s brother)
Mistletoe Mistake (a geek to chic romance)
Mistletoe Memories (second chance romance)
Mistletoe Maverick (opposites attract)

Aren’t those fun? I’m so excited to get started on them soon. Just so you know, I totally considered all the other titles that didn’t follow this pattern, but the more we went through things, the more my husband and I felt these worked the best. And, you should also know, that some of these were nominated by more than one person, so I have quite the list of winners.

If your name is mentioned below, remember, you can pick a book now, or wait and get a copy of the Christmas story when it releases, Just let me know your preference! And now, without further ado, here are my winners!

I’m so excited to get started on this, but it has to wait until I’ve finished rewriting those first 3 Middleton Prep stories. 🙂 I’m hoping to be done or close to done with “The Librarian and Her Beast” by the end of the week and then will dig into #2. Oh, and don’t forget that Laken’s story, “The Billionaire’s Best Friend” is releasing soon! I’ve had great responses from my Beta’s so far, so I’m hopeful you all will love it as well. 🙂

Until then… take a look at these great new releases below!
