THE HOLIDAY BRIDE
Santa knows best...
Waitress Lucy West is down on her luck at the diner. A fan of late-night television reruns, she's always dreamed of a nineteen-fifties style happily ever after. But, in reality, she's opted to settle. Barely scraping by on her meager salary and tired of going it alone, she figures marrying affable, yet distractible, Mitch as making the right move. Little does she know that Christmastime--and Santa--have other plans in store...
Bachelor dad William Kinkaid has his hands full with a young teenage son and a five-year-old daughter. Since losing his wife to cancer three years before, William's worked hard to keep things as upbeat and normal for the family as possible. After his child makes a special Christmas wish, William's stunned to awaken Christmas morning to find a beautiful blonde on the sofa. The woman can't remember a thing, and his kid thinks Santa brought her. Can William solve the mystery about who she really is, without giving away his heart?
THE HOLIDAY BRIDE...
William cinched the tie on his robe and paused at the bend in the stairs. Carmella raced down the steps ahead of him, dashing to the large beige sofa facing the fireplace. Two stockings brimming with goodies hung from the mantel.
"Oh boy, oh boy!" she cried, springing on her heels in a happy dance. Justin appeared on the landing beside his dad.
"What is it, fuzz brain?" he asked with a yawn.
Carmella looked up at them, her cheeks aglow. William had never seen her so excited. "He did it! Santa really did it!"
William descended the stairs feeling pleased with himself. He did know a thing or two about fathering, after all. "Well? Is it what you wanted?"
"Boy, is it ever," Carmella said with a happy gasp.
William strode around the sofa, feeling smug. Then, suddenly, he halted, nearly tumbling over the coffee table.
"Wow," Justin said, gazing straight ahead of him.
William stared in shock at the lovely blonde on the sofa who was clutching Carmella's teddy bear! She didn't look much over thirty, and was very reasonably put together.
The woman opened her eyes with a start and tried to sit, before quickly lying back down. "Where am I?" she asked with a pitiful moan.
"Don't you know?" Carmella asked, taking her hand. "Santa brought you home!"
She pushed herself upright, grasping the back of the sofa. "Home?"
"You're our new mommy!"
A sweet, traditional PG-rated romantic comedy.

THE GHOST NEXT DOOR
When destiny takes a hand...
You've got to hold on tight.
When single mom Elizabeth Jennings gets sent to a new town to revamp its weekly paper, she resists. Her daughter Claire is just fifteen, and has recently started high school. But Elizabeth's boss insists, so the two pack up and move to the tiny Virginia town, which isn't even on most maps. Their luck goes from bad to worse when they discover the house Elizabeth rented online cozies up to an abandoned house. When creepy things start occurring next door, Elizabeth's glad to have the small-town sheriff in their corner. Nathan Thorpe is not just a stand-up guy they can trust, he's cool to have around when things go bump in the night. Elizabeth also learns he's good at holding her tight. And, when she's wrapped in his arms, she becomes afraid of more than ghostly happenings. She fears she's losing her heart.
Like most folks in Blayton, Nathan Thorpe is here for a reason. Only, he didn't fully understand what that reason was until a stunning brunette and her daughter came to town. Nathan's immediately drawn to Elizabeth and feels motivated to protect her and Claire, believing that means shielding them from nonsensical small-town lore. With Halloween approaching, there are rumors swirling about concerning the old Fenton place located across the street from the graveyard, and next to the newer home occupied by the Jennings. Nathan's a calm thinker who can find a rational explanation for almost anything. Yet there are deeper mysteries in Blayton than Nathan can explain. When he learns the truth, will he still be able to hold onto the woman he loves?
