In Kismet, Michigan, Christmas is special: big fluffy snowflakes, sleigh bells, carolers singing. It's a picture-perfect holiday--you just have to choose who's in the frame. . .
Jason Hamilton is on thin ice with the board of his toy company. The young CEO may be a kid at heart, but his party boy reputation requires damage control. So Jason's off to Kismet to inspect a model store, stay on Santa's Nice list, and stick to business--no goofing around. Which is too bad, because the store manager, Danielle Sharpe, is the definition of what makes Naughty fun. . .
Danielle is thrilled to show off her thriving little toy store--especially if it's her ticket out of Kismet. The single mom is tired of manufacturing cheer solo while her ex-husband has all the fun. But if she'd known Jason was this hot, she wouldn't have offered to host him. With Jason in her house, Danielle is getting warmer than spiked cider. She's supposed to impress him with her expertise, not daydream about catching him under the mistletoe. Now whatever she does, she can't get swept up in the magic. . .

USA Today bestselling author Lisa Plumley does it again with another sparkling, sexy novel of crazy coincidences—and crazier love...
About the book...Her name was Josie, she was a showgirl......until the night she Heimliched a martini olive out of fabulously wealthy and eccentric casino owner Tallulah Carlyle. Now Josie Day—proud new owner of one of Tallulah's spare estates—is leaving Vegas behind for...Donovan's Corner, Arizona? Ironically, her "reward" has brought her right back to the dusty hometown she thought she'd left behind forever. Still, Josie's ready to prove there's more to her than feathers and a wicked rumba. She plans to sell the old mansion and use the profits to open a dance school. But first, she'll have to figure out some fancy footwork to avoid knocking heads—and other things—with caretaker and local bad boy Luke Donovan...
It isn't every day a woman like Josie comes strutting into town—which is fortunate, since her presence on the estate has Luke hotter and more bothered than he's been since, well, ever. He's a little annoyed with his Aunt Tallulah, though. This was supposed to be his property to renovate and sell—an opportunity to make good after being cut off from the family fortune. But Josie doesn't have to know that...at least not until Luke figures out a way to make both their dreams come true—and prove that Vegas isn't the only place where taking a chance can change everything...
What people are saying..."In this heartwarming, often humorous story, the feisty Josie proves that you can go home again --if you've got the right stuff. And once again, the talented Plumley, whose books include Perfect Switch, proves that when it comes to writing romantic comedy, few do it better." --Booklist (starred review)
"Secrets, misunderstandings, and miscommunications complicate this bright, amusing story, which takes a pair of protagonists with opposing goals, adds a host of family upheavals, and lets the off-beat tale unfold. For readers who like their contemporaries with up-front humor, sassy dialog, and small-town settings." --Library Journal
"Turning not-so-perfect, unlikely characters into romance heroes and heroines is Lisa Plumley's forte, and she once again delivers a zany cast who will make you laugh. If you want a light romance that will have you chuckling every few pages, Josie Day Is Coming Home won't disappoint you." --The State newspaper
"Plumley's story is lighthearted, with some serious tug-at-the-heart moments. Josie is upbeat and unbeatable, while Luke is determined and just the sort of guy Josie needs to make that happily ever after ending." --The Oakland Press
"Josie Day is a delight. Plumley writes her lead character using determination, beauty, and notorious appeal. Luke Donovan is simply: sexy, dangerous and fun. They are a wonderful couple." --Contemporary Romance Writers
