Christmas with Tiffany is free December 5-6

For a couple of days (December 5 and 6), Christmas with Tiffany will be free on Amazon for your Kindle or Kindle app. Here’s a little bit about the story:

Tiffany Elwood’s small-town gift shop has become her refuge. The quiet ambiance she created there helps her find peace after losing her father to cancer and her boyfriend to the sophisticated lures of California. Now, with Christmas fast approaching, she has high hopes that the profits from her annual open house will help her support her mom and little sister through the coming year.

But her peace is disrupted when her tiny shop is inundated with ten times the number of ornaments she’d ordered, not to mention the return of that old boyfriend, Bain Lyndhurst. Every time she turns around, the former man of her dreams is in her shop, and there’s no accounting for his sudden affinity for purchasing Christmas decorations.

With the magic of the Christmas season to aid them, can the two star-crossed lovers rediscover the passion of their youth and establish the trust they need to face the future together?

If you’re in the mood for a sweet and short Christmas story, feel free to download Christmas with Tiffany while it’s free. But if you miss the free days, it’s still a good buy at 99 cents. Enjoy!

“Christmas with Tiffany”—A fun story to write

Occasionally a book is just plain fun to write. That’s rare, as any writer will tell you. Ordinarily writing is hard work. Or as Hemingway said, “All you do is sit at the typewriter and bleed.” (As an aside, I used to write at a typewriter. Thank goodness for computers!)

But Christmas with Tiffany was a fun book to write. First of all, I enjoy writing Christmas stories. There’s something inherently romantic to me about a season where people are deeply involved in carrying on the traditions that go back to their childhoods or are in the process of creating their own new traditions.

Christmas with Tiffany is a “second-chance-at-love” story. As you might expect, Tiffany and the man she once loved have been estranged for a number of years. But then he moves back to the state, not far from the town where he and Tiffany met and where she now owns a small gift shop that she’s busily preparing for her annual Christmas open house. 

Neither is in the mood for a happy reunion. Their breakup wasn’t exactly cordial. But when Tiffany’s tiny shop is inundated with ten times the number of Christmas ornaments that she’d ordered, affairs seem to take on a mind of their own.

Christmas with Tiffany is a short novella and as such is priced at only ninety-nine cents on Amazon. If you’d like a quick and uplifting read during the hectic Christmas season (or beyond), I invite you to check it out.

My newest (old) Christmas novella

I’m pleased to announce the publication (for the second time) of my Regency Christmas novella titled A Christmas Spirit of Forgiveness. 

Why is it being published for the second time? You see, the story originally appeared in an anthology published in 2009 by Cerridwen Press as part of their Cotillion line for traditional Regencies. About a year ago, the anthology went out of print, but fortunately the stories are now being released as stand-alone ebooks. I’m delighted that this story is available again.

A Christmas Spirit of Forgiveness

The following paragraphs give an idea of what the story is about and also illustrate the significance of the woman depicted on the cover.

            An endangered kitten and a mysterious lady in red combine to lure Anna Marshall away from her home and out into the teeth of a ferocious snowstorm. After rescuing the kitten, Anna walks on through the falling snow, searching for a man reported missing by the lady in red.

This rather peculiar evening turns alarming for Anna when an encounter with a stranger on horseback results in her being unceremoniously “rescued” by the notorious Earl of Ashington, who was told by the lady in red that a female was missing in the storm.

Convinced he’s saving Anna’s life, Ashington insists on taking her home with him. Marooned on his country estate, the two discover a mutual attraction that both realize can lead nowhere. After all, he’s universally detested by his country neighbors and thus prefers life in London while Anna avoids the city because she has reason to dislike her aristocratic relatives who reside there.

But Christmas is approaching and with help from the ghostly lady in red, the two of them discover that by accepting love and forgiveness, they can possess the peace and joy that the season promises.

If you enjoy Christmas romances, I hope you’ll consider trying A Christmas Spirit of Forgiveness. It will soon be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and all venues for electronic books.

Dealing with Denver Is Free April 20-22

I’m pleased to report that Dealing with Denver, a sweet romance that is set in a small Tennessee town, will be free for the Kindle April 20-22. I hope you’ll stop by and download a copy.

This book is the second in my series about three brothers (triplets) from Chicago who end up in the small mountain town of Barbourville. I first told Dallas’ story in Falling for Dallas. Denver is the second brother, and the third, whose story is not yet told, is Dayton.
