By Sofia Aves

Ally royally screwed up her job as an Internal Affairs officer in Melbourne, interrupting Cal and Danny’s investigation. 

When her boss offers her a second chance, she jumps at the opportunity to make up for her mistake. The catch? She’s going undercover to audition for a place in the task force she deceived. Cal’s team is the best there is, and if Ally wants to resurrect her career, she needs to have this job completed by Christmas. 

Brett Walker is her point of contact within the small time drug racket. Sexy as hell with an easy going smile, he’s a crook and she can’t trust him. 

But as they work more closely together, Ally suspects there’s more to his story, and she’s determined to discover who he really is. 

Cake Decorating for Beginners
By Danielle Bellwood

Rachel is a hard-working woman with a singular mission: to save her custom cake business. Recently divorced, and drowning in a sea of debt, she decides to tackle the annual Texas National Wedding Cake Show competition for the chance to win a $100,000 grand prize. But it’s not all gumdrops and lollipops in San Antonio, TX. The competition is stiff; famous bakers and designers from all across the country will be entering cakes fit to grace the covers of magazines. Add major distractions like a sexy Texan and an overzealous family, and Rachel will have her work cut out for her. 

Aloha Christmas

By Aubrey Brandon

Kate Harmon is in Hawaii for her best friend’s Christmas wedding. As maid of honor, she’s determined to make sure everything is perfect. The only problem is the best man, Nick Reed. Kate and Nick spent two perfect days together, or at least they seemed perfect, until he dumped her by voicemail and she never saw him again. 

Can Kate make it through three days in paradise with the man who broke her heart? Or is there a chance that Santa might work some Christmas magic, and deliver the best gift of all?

Callum’s Awakening 
A Billionaire’s Holiday Romance (MM)
By Leila Coltyn

Can a broken young billionaire with a history of being used for his fortune move past his distrust of men?

The holidays have made Callum even crankier than usual. Unbidden memories haunt him as he arrives at a festive resort for his brother’s wedding, and his irritation only intensifies when he agrees to share a cabin.

Finding himself paired with Ryker in a secluded cabin, Callum uses snark and sarcasm to keep Ryker at arm’s length. It takes being snowed in together during a blizzard for the patient tattoo artist to warm Callum’s heart.

Her Christmas Angel
A Delsey Dozen Novelette
By Zoey Fox

Can a tragic fire really help to rekindle an old flame?

Anabelle Delsey plans to spend Christmas with her family, celebrating their plans to renovate the family’s 100-year-old farmhouse when tragedy strikes. 

An accidental fire destroys the Delsey home, landing both Anabelle Delsey and her younger sister Emma Delsey in the hospital. The fire destroys not only the house, but also precious family heirlooms left behind by Anabelle’s late mother. Her favorite heirloom, a Stained-Glass Angel Tree Topper, survives the fire but is badly damaged. Will Anabelle’s ex-boyfriend, Caleb Lenox, and her older brother, Trenton, be able to step in to save Christmas?

Joyeux Noël, Elinor
Inspired by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Book 1 of Christmas With The Scrooges
By Élodie Garroway

Christmas is a fucking humbug.

Elinor Scrooge’s antiques business is failing, her evil stepmother Joann Marley is dying, and her fiancé might as well be a ghost. But Elinor is given a chance to at least save her business when her stepmother promises her two thirds of the estate at the time of Joann’s passing. All she has to do is stay at the estate through Christmas. No big deal, Christmas is only a few weeks away…

Only it becomes apparent once she arrives that Elinor has to save more than just the antiques. Suddenly she has a few weeks to pack up and renovate the crumbling estate, keep her best friend away from her baby brother, avoid an old childhood friend who makes her want more, and try not to help her stepmother into an earlier grave.  Will Elinor be able to make it to Christmas? Or will she find herself with an uncertain future?

Changed in Time for Christmas 
by Liz Martinson

Opposites attract, so they say. It certainly happens between Jake and Emily. One of them used to casual affairs and being laid-back, and the other used to commitment and having her life carefully planned out.

But it seems it’s easier for Emily to drop the control and accept uncertainty than it is for Jake to understand his shallow relationships might be a thing of the past and he needs to understand commitment isn’t a ten-letter word.

An unexpected event puts their love to the test. Can it withstand the upheaval? And can Jake be saved from the near catastrophic results?

Baking a Living
By Molli McBeal

Clara is broke and forced to take a job catering her ex-boyfriend’s wedding until a ray of hope comes in the form of the ex’s brother, Garret who suggests she dump the wedding gig and cater his Christmas party instead. The catch? He wants edibles!

Clara has never been good at letting loose, so the idea of experimenting with drugs sends her for a loop. Running out of options, she decides to take a leap—and with Garret’s help, she discovers that the beauty of life lies somewhere between right and wrong. 

Naan but you
By L.S. Ram

She’s avoiding reality. 
He’s done with her secrets.
And together? Love just doesn’t seem to be enough.
At least, not anymore.

Many years and one engagement later, things have been less than ideal between Riya and Ethan. One Indian and one Korean, they knew from the beginning that certain secrets and issues were inevitable. For instance, besides his family and a select few friends, no one else knows of their couple status.

However, after seven years together and hopes for marriage? The excuses are starting to get stale. 

He’s been patient for a long time, allowing her to make all the rules. Meanwhile, her solution was playing dumb.  

But if Riya’s resolve doesn’t bypass her fears in time for Christmas? Perhaps only a certain miracle could keep these two together. 

Step Into a Very Noir Christmas
By Sydney Woods

Crime Noir … With a peppermint twist!  Step into a cheesy modern homage to a fun classic genre.

Phoebe was a dame that could take care of herself.  Although she was smart enough to know when she needed help, and there was only one person she could trust.  A stoic PI named Reece, who joins her in solving this Christmas caper.  It’s unfortunate, for her that the heat between them is still palatable and he’s still a hot…potato.

Will they pull it together and solve this nutcracker of a case or get burned by the yule log fueled by desire?
