Bennett Pontellier Watkins and Helene-Louise Soileau had a secret, youthful love affair--until their mothers found out. Helene-Louise, the housekeeper's daughter, was sent to France to study lacemaking while a bereft Bennett drowned his sorrows on the beach with beer and sorority girls.

Eight years later, Helene-Louise, now a master craftsman, owns a shop in Beauford, Tennessee, and teaches a series of workshops at the Cultural Arts Center in Merritt, where Bennett is the director. It isn't long before they fall into each other's arms once more.

But old patterns begin to re-emerge, and despite Bennett's declarations of love, it's clear to Helene-Louise that he still has no intention of coming clean with his upper-crust parents about their relationship. Is she willing to give up everything she's built for herself in Beauford for a man who may never see her as more than the hired help's daughter?

Or will Christmastime in Merritt reveal love to be the greatest present of all?

Need an escape from the fast lane? Join USA TODAY bestselling author Alicia Hunter Pace in small town Merritt, Alabama, where life, laughter, and love are always waiting just around the corner.

Misbehaving in Merritt: Dr. Maxwell Ellis Buchanan IV’s privileged life tailspins out of control when too many speeding tickets mean he must volunteer his time at Merritt’s local arts center. Even worse? He’ll report to Audrey Evans, a former ESPN reporter, who just flat out turned him down for a date. She seeks the peace and quiet of an Alabama small town, and arrogant golden boys don’t fit that bill. Working side by side, Max and Audrey find surprising common ground and a chemistry that leaves them breathless—but are they barking up the wrong tree?

Misunderstood in Merritt: As personal assistant to the rich and famous Beauford brothers, Sammy Anderson is content to drift through life, living vicariously through his employers’ fame—until he meets interior design assistant Pam Carson. But when she and Sammy join forces to make sure Jackson Beauford’s benefit concert goes off without a hitch, she is convinced her ordinary existence could never be enough to make him give up his sparkling life in Beauford. It’s up to Sammy to make Pam see that this connection they share is special so they can finally step into the spotlight to find their own fairy tale.

Mistletoed in Merritt: Rich boy Bennett Pontellier Watkins and blue collar Hélène-Louise Soileau had a secret, youthful love affair—until their mothers found out and set them on separate paths.

The spark is still there, but old patterns begin to re-emerge, and it’s clear that Bennett still wants to hide their relationship from his family. Is Hélène-Louise willing to give up everything she’s built for herself for a man who may never see beyond her social status?

Meet the four sexy brothers of Beauford Bend in this enchanting new Southern series by USA Today best-selling author Alicia Hunter Pace! Nearly thirty miles from Nashville sits the boutique town of Beauford, known for its artisan craft shops and colorful personalities--especially the renowned Beauford brothers. Haunted by the tragic fire that orphaned them years ago, the boys left town to find fame and success. Now they're coming home. But surprising revelations about that fateful night--and the love of a few good Southern women--will heal their hearts and change their lives forever.

Forgiving Jackson: When a devastating fire at one of his concerts reopens old wounds for country superstar Jackson Beauford, he heads home for some peace and quiet--only to discover that stubborn Southern magnolia Emory Lowell has planted herself at his family estate, bringing chaos in her wake.

Nickolai's Noel: An ice storm traps hockey pro Nickolai Glazov with quilt shop owner Noel Verden one fateful Christmas. As these two strong-willed folks fall in love then fall apart, they'll learn that home is the place you hang your heart (not just your quilt or your hockey stick).

Reforming Gabe: Once the NFL's best wide receiver, Gabe Beauford's been dropping the ball this season--literally. After his team loses the Super Bowl, he heads back to Beauford to hide and brood, but crossing paths with independent and talented jewelry maker Neyland MacKenzie puts a new gleam in his eye. She needs saving, and he needs a project... But will his not-so-deft touch ruin her dreams and their chance at real love?

Redeeming Rafe: Bull riding, cliff diving, plane jumping--if it makes most men quake in their boots, Rafe Beauford does it eagerly. But his wild lifestyle comes to a halt when he discovers he's the father of toddlers. Taking his twin girls back to Beauford, he plans to leave them there to grow up with a nanny, but the woman he hires, widowed mom Abigail Whitman, is determined to show him the importance of family--and love.

Heath's Hope: Ambitious and career-minded Hope MacKenzie left Heath Beckett with a bleeding heart years ago. Now she's back in town because her family's bank needs her desperately. When she gives a personal loan to the women who own the local knitting shop without consulting Heath, who has helped them with their finances for years, the two must work together to ensure the ladies' business plan is in tip-top shape. But will sharing their time lead to deeper feelings being re-awakened?

Healing Beau: Sick of being babied his whole life, youngest brother Beau joined the army as soon as he could. He thought he'd be a lifer, but an injury sends him back to Beauford without peace or a purpose. Knowing he can't heal until some truths come to light, his old friend Christian Hambrick, who always held a torch for him, wages a full-scale war on the past--and emerges with the secrets about what really happened the night of the fire.
