THE DOCTOR ORDERS CHRISTMAS
(Christmas Town, Book 4)

Christmas Town doctor Kurt Christmas has loved high school guidance counselor Savannah Livingston his entire life. While he's had plenty of opportunity to meet beautiful and accomplished women, playboy bachelor Kurt hasn't become seriously interested in any of them. He still pines for the stunning redheaded rebel with emerald-green eyes, who took his breath away at sixteen. When Kurt and Savannah reconnect in Tennessee at Savannah's sister's wedding, that old flame reignites and Kurt finds himself hoping for a brand new start. Yet Savannah's current circumstances in Miami threaten to hold her at bay. If Kurt could write a prescription for anything, it would be to win Savannah's heart. But will love be enough to conquer the secrets that stand between them?



EXCERPT

"Savannah, please." The words were a tender petition. "Don't go."

"Kurt, I..." She inhaled deeply, gathering her resolve. "We," she said more firmly. Though her composure was a farce. "We've got nothing to talk about."

"You know I don't believe that. There's a lot more to say, starting with why..." 

Kurt stepped an inch closer and the front of his tuxedo shirt grazed her back. Due to the sweltering heat, he'd removed his bow tie and jacket the moment the photo session ended.

"That was ages ago," Savannah said, even though in her heart it seemed like only yesterday.

"That doesn't mean it doesn't matter.""We were kids, Kurt."

"That's what others saw," he said hoarsely. "Not the truth that we knew."

"I don't want that truth anymore."

"Don't you...?" His arms slid around her, and Savannah's breath hitched. Kurt was better looking now than he ever was. He stood just over six feet tall with a solid buff frame, and dark blond hair offsetting his rugged features. "Carter tells me that you and James are no longer together."

"That's my business," she said unconvincingly. "Not yours."

"I could make it mine, if you'd let me..."

From New York Times Bestselling Author GINNY BAIRD, a new laugh-out-loud romantic comedy...

My Best Friend's Bride

Relationship expert Jillian Jamison is in a bind. While her first book was a successful bestseller, her second tome tanked. Now, her publisher wants a spin on the third book, Married Love: Keeping Those Home Fires Burning, that's up close and personal. With financial pressures mounting and sole responsibility for her aging grandfather, Jill feels forced into wedlock in order to appease her publisher and keep her job. But it's only for a year, and she's devised a plan with her long-term friend. When Brad backs out due to problems with his real girlfriend Susan, Jill fears she'll be left standing alone at the altar. Then Brad offers a solution: Jill can marry the one man on earth she despises...his handsome best friend.

Hunter Delaney is a confirmed bachelor and that's how he likes it. When his best friend, Brad, approaches him with an unusual contract, he's determined to run for the hills, especially since the name on the paperwork is international celebrity Jillian Jamison, the woman who spurned him in high school. Hunter would rather do anything than spend twelve months of his life saddled with her. But he has a soft spot for Brad, who's in a predicament, so Hunter agrees to consider Brad's proposal. When Hunter learns he's getting passed over for a promotion because the family-oriented client only wants to work with someone who's married, this clinches the deal.

Hunter is "in" for as long as he can stand it. Jill is not thrilled with the arrangement either. But really, what choice does she have? Even if it has to look authentic on the outside, between her and Hunter it's just pretend. Besides, she reasons rationally, she's already got the dress...
