 Get Christmas all year long…


I thought I would end the holiday season as I had every year, alone in my bed, binging on my favorite seasonal TV shows. That was until I received a call from an old friend, who made me a proposition I couldn’t afford to refuse. 


And so this year, I was spending Christmas with the Christmases. When I arrived at the Christmas mansion, Bryn, the one who invited me, was nowhere to be found. It was her older brother, Jasper who welcomed me with un-opened arms. 


Jasper Christmas was a beautiful but dark angel. He was intense, brooding and the epitome of sexy; danger dripped from his pores. Bryn’s proposition would put me at odds with this mysterious being, who guarded their family's secrets with his flaming sword.


So soon I found myself passionately entangled with Jasper Walker Christmas. I’m now worried that our encounters will make me betray the reason Bryn invited me here in the first place.

The past, present and future merge in this final installment of the LOVE in the USA series.

It looks like we made it. 

Belmont and I were committed after one intense week four years ago. We fell for each other fast but reality set in even faster. I found him entitled and overbearing without giving me room to breathe and be myself. He found me cold and unaffected, a person who couldn’t express what she needed because all I wanted was to cherish the pain of my brother’s death.Then I gave birth to our first child, and we lost her. We spiraled deeper down the rabbit hole. But two people don’t come together the way we did for nothing. Belmont and I were meant to be. So with a little help from the ones we love, we worked like hell to hold on to the things that brought us together in the first place, and worked out the issues that were pulling us apart. 


We have a son now and he is magnificent. Our love for each other has ripened into a sweet, lasting happily ever after.

Until one day Belmont went missing without a trace.

In TRAILS OF LOVE...
When Graham Braden travels to Oak Falls, Virginia to attend the wedding of his buddy Reed Cross to Grace Montgomery, he sticks around to help with renovations to Reed's new theater. The last thing he expects is to be asked to assess and possibly invest in Grace's sister Morgyn's business endeavor. Graham is a careful, keen businessman, and Morgyn is impulsive, disorganized, and more interested in the energy flow in her eclectic retail shop than in the accuracy of her records. While Graham isn't ready to open his pockets to the sassy, sexy business owner, he may be ready to open his heart.


The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

Women.

They’ve always been my weakness. 


There’s a certain line a man shouldn’t cross to get the woman he’s always wanted—especially when that woman belongs to his best friend.


I crossed that line. And now I’ve lost everything that matters.


They say a man has to hit bottom before he rises to the top. I’ve hit bottom—but like a balloon filled with helium I’m working hard as hell to pick myself back up.


Then I meet Carter. She’s irresistible and way too good for me. I’m not ready for her—at least not yet. Plus she’s my buddy’s favorite cousin. I’ve made the mistake of crossing him once, and I sure as hell don’t want to cross him twice. So I’m keeping my distance. But as each day goes by, I’m finding it harder to resist her.

Guilty until proven innocent. 
That’s the way the world works, right?

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.
