It's Beginning to Feel A Lot Like Christmas!

It's November and that means Christmas romance novel season is in full swing! I know I've already read two and am gearing up for more over the next six weeks. Readers ask me all the time what books of mine are holiday-themed and I have a LOT of them. I thought I would put together a post where all of them are listed with the read-inside option available in one place. The read inside feature from Amazon is nice because it allows you to read the first 10% of the novel and also has the buy link built-in Will take you to the Amazon page). Let's get started! I'm going to post the ones that have Christmas as the central theme first and the last few will be ones that happen right before and during the Christmas season. Also, ALL of these books (all of my books actually) are in Kindle Unlimited and all of the books below are .99 for the holidays!

The Snowberry Series

Trapped in an elevator with a handsome stranger was the perfect meet-cute, but Dr. Snow Daze wasn’t interested in being the heroine of any romance novel. A serious researcher at Providence Hospital in Snowberry, Minnesota, Snow doesn’t have time for a personal life, which was exactly the way she liked it.

Dully Alexander hated elevators, until he was stuck in one with a beautiful snow angel. Intrigued by her gorgeous white hair, and her figure hugging wheelchair, he knows he’ll do anything to be her hero. When a good old-fashioned Minnesota blizzard traps them at her apartment, he takes advantage of the crackling fire, whispered secrets on the couch, and stolen kisses in the night. Dully will stop at nothing to convince Snow she deserves her own happily ever after.

It’s nearly Christmas in Snowberry Minnesota, but Jay Alexander is feeling anything but jolly. Stuck in the middle of town square with a flat tire on his worn out wheelchair leaves him feeling grinchy.

December Kiss has only been in Snowberry for a few months when she happens upon this broken down boy next door. His sandy brown hair and quirky smile has her hoisting his wheelchair into the back of her four horse Cherokee.

When a December romance blooms, Jay wants to give December just one thing for Christmas, her brother. Will Jay get his December Kiss under the mistletoe Christmas Eve?

Nick S. Klaus, principal at John Peter Thomas Elementary School in Snowberry, Minnesota, loves Christmas. He loves everything about it from the cookies and the tree, to donning the Santa suit for the annual Coats for Kids Drive every December. Professionally, his life is fulfilled, but his personal life is tortured. He has spent every night for the last five years dreaming about the woman next door. The woman he’d like to make Mrs. Klaus.

Mandy Alexander, choir teacher for the Snowberry School District, doesn’t have a personal life. Working full-time and raising Ben and Esther, leaves her no time to date, but she’s not complaining. Her life hasn’t been easy, and she doesn’t need another entanglement, or another broken heart. Her neighbor, and coworker, Nick S. Klaus hasn’t made it a secret he’d like to take her out, but a woman scorned has a hard time learning to trust again, and Mandy has been scorned hard.

This Christmas everything will change for Nick and Mandy. When life circumstances throw them together, they grab onto each other and hold tight. Ex-husbands, blisters, broken bones, and an old family feud will work against Nick and Mandy finding true love, but they don’t call him Nick S. Klaus for nothing. With the help of his head elf, and two of the cutest elves in Snowberry, Nick will teach Mandy how to hold the spirit of Christmas in her heart again, forever.

The Sugar Series

Sugar's Dance occurs during the holiday season but is not a true holiday romance.

By day, Sugar was everyone’s favorite ballroom dance instructor. By night, she was a grieving woman who couldn’t find a way out of the pain and darkness of her past. She pushed herself to put one foot in front of the other, but her family worried she was slipping away from them.

Special Agent Donovan Walsh was looking for a change. He didn’t think anything could be more challenging than being a single father, but he hadn’t met his new state witness yet. Offered a stint as Sugar’s bodyguard, he agreed to fly to ‘the tip of the end of the world,’ in hopes of finding himself again.
When autumn turned to winter and an attempt was made on Sugar’s life, she had to trust Van to lead her through a dangerous rumba of deceit, kidnapping, and murder. When bullets started flying, Van had to believe he could protect his one reason for living.

This Christmas, Sugar has an important question to answer. Will Van finally heal her broken heart or will he be the one to break it beyond repair?

Trusting Trey is a stand-alone in the Sugar Series and is directly about Christmas.


Trey Helton moved to Duluth to work as a prosthetist for the local hospital. Leaving behind a personal tragedy, he knew Duluth would be the place he could make a new life and start to heal.

Allison Drakos was a college senior ready to graduate from the University of Minnesota Duluth. Going to school and working part-time filled her days, but Allison still found time to enjoy her last year with her sorority sisters, until the unthinkable happened. Beaten and left for dead, her rescuer was the only person her heart let her trust. Determined to adjust to life in a wheelchair Allison put on a brave front, but the only place she truly felt safe was in Trey's arms.


Christmas Eve is a special day for Trey and Allison Helton. Not only is it the day they fell in love with each other, but also the day, six years ago, that they married. Their Christmas Eve routine has stayed the same for the last twelve years, but this year will be different. This is the year Allison will make all of Trey's dreams come true.


By next Christmas Eve will Trey and Allison be holding a new reason to celebrate a life full of possibilities?

The Secrets Between Us is actually about Christmas & Hanukkah.

Of three things I was certain...

The first?
Mercy was exquisite in the most devastatingly broken way.

The second?
I didn’t know how to love, but for the first time in my life, I wanted to try.

The third?
The secrets between us could tear us apart forever.

I wouldn’t let that happen.

Magnificent Destiny starts in the fall but ends on Christmas.

Rockefeller Jonas Maresanti, Rock to those close to him, hadn’t forgotten the coffee brown eyes of his Annie. He’d made mistakes in his life, but his biggest mistake was running from Magnificent, Wisconsin and the girl whose eyes still haunted him.

Sally Anne Robertson was a successful businesswoman in Magnificent, but it wasn’t without sacrifice. After losing everything, she forged a new life for herself in a place where the ghosts of her past hung heavily in the air.

When Rock walked through her café doors and back into her life, her well-worn façade crumbled. Staring into his dark, boding eyes she realized she wanted to rekindle the flame that still burned below the surface of their hearts, but first, she had to heal his. Just as they find happiness again, Rock’s past catches up to them, and they’re thrown into a game of hatred and violence they aren’t sure they can win. It will take all their determination, hope, and belief in true love to protect their magnificent destiny.
So there you have it, all of my holiday romances in one place! I hope you discover a story, or series, that you fall in love with this season and find some of yourself in the characters and places this Christmastime.
