A holiday romantic comedy, with pets, a hunky Santa Claus and an orphan!

When wealthy executive Dave Anders goes to the vet to pick up his dog, he ends up chasing a monkey and kissing the vet herself. Dr. Merrie McGregor’s drawn to this teasing, sexy man but she never expects to see him again—until he shows up as Santa Claus on her doorstep on Christmas Eve with gifts for Merrie’s visiting niece Steffie.

Learning that her selfish sister plans to stick her adopted daughter in boarding school, Merrie will go to any lengths to get the little girl entrusted to her, even faking an engagement with Dave. The problem is that Dave seems to be taking the whole engagement business a little too seriously. Can a warm December really last the whole year round?

“I'm a sucker for Jacqueline Diamond's romances. They always contain strong families and the complication of having an innocent child in the mix. It's easy to read them in one sitting and you always get emotionally wrapped up in the characters' lives.”—Helen Slifer, WritersUnlimited

She’s making a list—and checking it twice. But is there a nice guy among all her naughty exes? The New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines returns with a charming friends-to-lovers rom-com.

“Lauren Layne writes characters I want to tackle and keep as my best friends, woven into smart, sexy, utterly romantic tales of love.”—Violet Duke

When a psychic tells spunky, superstitious Kelly Byrne that she’s already met her true love, she becomes obsessed with the idea of tracking him down before Christmas. Kelly immediately writes up an “Ex List” and starts contacting old boyfriends to figure out which one is the one. When her college sweetheart rolls into town, Kelly convinces herself that they’re meant to be. The trouble is, sparks are flying with someone she’s never given a chance: her best friend, Mark.

Mark Blakely has watched the guys on Kelly’s list break her heart, and he’s not looking forward to watching them do it all over again. Mark’s always been there for her, but the timing’s never worked out for their relationship to be something more. Now, just as Mark is ready to move on, the sexual tension between them is suddenly off the charts. With Christmas morning around the corner, he just hopes Kelly will wake up and realize that everything she wants has been right in front of her all along.

Au nom de l’innocence, Jacqueline Diamond
Joni n’a pas tué Lowell, son ex-mari. Mais comment prouver à la police que quelqu’un l’a assommée, avant d’assassiner Lowell et de placer un couteau entre ses mains ? Désespérée, et surtout terrifiée à l’idée d’être jetée en prison et séparée de Jeff, son fils de huit ans, elle se tourne à contrecœur vers son beau-frère, Dirk. Certes, Dirk ne l’a jamais appréciée, persuadé qu’elle a épousé son frère pour sa fortune. Mais, en homme d’affaires influent, et connu pour sa droiture, il représente pour Joni le seul espoir de voir son innocence reconnue. Et de garder auprès d’elle le petit garçon qui est désormais sa raison de vivre...

Une impossible révélation, Linda Conrad
Summer est habitée par une haine tenace. Elle n’a plus qu’une raison de vivre : tuer Brian Hoss, l’assassin qui lui a volé son bonheur. En se faisant embaucher comme gouvernante chez Travis Chance, le propriétaire d’un ranch situé à quelques pas de la demeure de Hoss, elle croit trouver le repaire idéal : d’ici, elle pourra observer sa cible en toute discrétion, avant de passer à l’acte. Mais sa stratégie se retourne contre elle ; des actes de vandalisme sont commis sur la propriété de Travis. À qui s’adresse l’avertissement, à elle... ou bien à Travis qui ignore pourtant tout de son projet ? Inquiète, gagnée par la culpabilité, Summer ne sait plus que faire. Car peut-elle avouer à Travis – le seul homme à avoir touché son cœur depuis des années – qu’elle lui ment depuis le début ?

Une nouvelle qui la ravirait si le père de son enfant n’était pas son rival en affaires, le séduisant et arrogant Shane O’Connell... Quelle folie lui a donc pris de succomber au désir que Shane lui inspire depuis toujours, et de passer une nuit entre ses bras ? Car désormais, elle doit lui annoncer qu’il va être père...

Mariés sous le sceau du secret, Kara Lennox
La princesse Amelia Carradine est folle de rage. Son grand-père veut faire d’elle la future reine du Korosol ? Alors qu’elle a dû se battre pour surmonter les réticences de sa famille et réaliser son rêve de s’engager dans une organisation humanitaire ? Hors de question ! D’autant que, depuis un an, ses proches ignorent qu’elle a épousé en secret Nick Standish, un mercenaire rencontré lors d’un séjour à l’étranger, qui vient justement d’arriver en ville...

Une liaison très discrète, Michele Dunaway
Jamais Harrison Montcalm n’avait refusé un service à Son Altesse le roi Easton du Korosol. Aujourd’hui, pourtant, il donnerait tout pour décliner la mission que ce dernier lui a confiée : observer la princesse Lucia, pour vérifier qu’elle est digne de lui succéder sur le trône. Une tâche qui s’annonce difficile pour Harrison. Comment, en effet, côtoyer jour après jour cette merveilleuse jeune femme en lui cachant qu’il est tombé éperdument amoureux d’elle ?
