Summary

Summary

"It's that time of year when the world falls in love. . ."

Join four of your favorite authors for tales of Christmas romance to remember forever.

"Under the Mistletoe," Lisa Jackson

Megan Johnson's marriage is over--or so she thinks. When her husband Chris lands in the hospital, fighting for his life, she remembers the unexpected joy of their first Christmas together. . .

"A Ranger for Christmas," Mary Burton

The holidays bring painful memories for history professor Marissa Thompson. Agreeing to help Texas Ranger Lucas Cooper solve a case offers the perfect distraction. But as danger threatens, the joy of love has never been more tempting.

"A Southern Christmas," Mary Carter

Reporter Danielle Bright is heading home for the holidays to write up a feature story about Christmas down south--and possibly win back her ex. But Sawyer, the sexy photographer along for the ride, is determined to jingle her bells. . .

"Christmas in Montana" Cathy Lamb

Family is the ideal antidote to getting fired, but Laurel Kelly isn't prepared for the changes at home in Montana--or the fact that her college boyfriend Josh Reed now owns the family land. But a blue Christmas could be the perfect surprise for a holiday to remember.


Author Notes

Romance author Lisa Jackson grew up in Oregon. She graduated from Oregon State University and started working in the banking/investment industry. In the early 1980s, she stopped working in order to become a stay-at-home mom and started writing romance novels at the suggestion of her sister and fellow romance author Nancy Bush. She published her first novel, A Twist of Fate, in 1983. Her books regularly appear on the New York Times, USA Today and Publisher's Weekly bestseller lists. In April 2011 Lisa Jackson's title Devious hit the Publisher's Weekly bestseller list and in Aug 2012 her title You Don't Want to Know made The New York Times Best Seller List. In 2014 she continued this trend with her book, Close to Home.
