This holiday anthology of six Christmas Short Stories blends contemporary stories of fiction with traditional charm. These cheerful, heartwarming tales feature nostalgic Christmas memories paired with enchanting stories of magic. Christmas angels, fairies and Santa Claus make appearances within the pages of this book. The author began these Christmas stories in 1997 with the award winning essay, The Best Part of Christmas.

In the The Ghosts of Christmas Past previous generations meet the present because of an ordinary family heirloom. A hand-me-down red scarf is the key to Christmas magic in The Red Christmas Scarf. The Winter Road is a short story of a boy living in a rural area who learns the land he lives on is frequented by someone important once a year. A Fairy Merry Christmas invites readers to the Murphy Farm, where homesteading fairies join forces with The Murphy family to help Santa complete his deliveries. Three poems provide holiday warmth between stories while charming illustrations by the author adorn the pages.

"The Tale of the Christmas Angel" is about the mortal life of Sabrina and her gradual transformation into a Christmas Angel based on her kindness and generosity to others.

"The Ghosts of Christmas Past" is about a Christmas Eve party where the past and present meet. Young Charlie discovers there is more to the old Indiana homestead than he ever knew, and an ordinary heirloom lights the way.

"The Red Christmas Scarf" is about a plain red scarf given as a gift to a young girl from her grandmother. Although it looks like common gift, it has magical properties woven in its threads.

"The Best Part of Christmas" is the author's true account of the last Christmas that she spent with her mother.

"The Winter Road" is a short story of a boy living in a rural area. One day, he learns that the land he lives on is frequented by someone important once a year.

"A Fairy Merry Christmas" is the newest story from the Magical Murphy Farm Series. Christmas wouldn't be the same without a little bit of whimsical to chase away some of the nostalgia. The thought of homesteading fairies helping along for Christmas is sure to make you smile.

Features the poems: "The Hopping Holiday Deer" by Lisa Arnold and "The Burnished Bells of Holiday Cheer" and "One Day Before Christmas" by Patricia Arnold.
Enter the world of the Paranormal Council, where shifters go about their day to day lives without anyone even realising. From escaping arranged marriages, to dealing with rogue necromancers, these shifters have a bit of everything...



The Dryad's Pawprint

He'll give up his happiness to help his people - but can he give up his soulmate?

When Kem is called before the Shifter Council, he's told he needs to marry to secure an alliance for them. There's only one problem; a year ago he met a woman he can't forget. 

After meeting a mystery man a year ago, Lia has a secret. One that she can't even tell her sister, Aella. When fate brings the two of the back together, even the most carefully laid plans get disrupted. 


The Vixen's Bark

All she wants is to make a difference. All he wants, is her. 

The last thing Arabella wants is to accept that Bjorn is her mate. Not that she doesn't like him, quite the opposite, but because it would mean giving up her position on the Shifter Council. 

Bjorn will do anything to make Ari his, even if it means finding a way around the rules. Because if there's one thing he wants, it's for her to be happy. 

The Necromancer's Prey

He's investigating her people - so why can't she resist him?

Rory's been an outcast her whole life, never feeling like she fit in with the other necromancers. With the Shifter Council investigating a rogue, her loyalties are torn between the people she doesn't belong to, and the shifter she can't seem to stop thinking about. 

When Alden saves Rory one night, the attraction between them becomes too difficult to ignore, and he finally starts to accept that she could be his mate. 

The Vampire's Bite

What if the only way to save him was to turn him into a monster?

Tony never asked to be a vampire. He didn't even know they existed until he interrupted the wrong man. 

Eden has always avoided turning anyone, but there was something about Tony that made her do it. But now, she has to face the consequences of her actions that night. And adding a new vampire into the mix, doesn't make that any easier. 

The Witch's Stripes

He was only ever meant to take some pictures...

When charity spokeswoman, Dana, needs a last minute photographer, the last person she expects to turn up is her mate. But the moment he arrives, something changes within her. 

Luke has always been able to control his magic. But now it's interfering in just about everything he does. If only he could keep it away from the enchanting tiger shifter it seems to have taken a liking to...
