For My Own

A Christmas for Carrie by Alison Packard

Carrie Jones, a modern day Scrooge, is stunned to run into her former high school crush, Nick Johnson, who is back in town for the holidays. Sparks fly between the former classmates, and when Nick discovers Carrie isn’t a fan of Christmas, he devises a plan to show her that the holidays can be the most magical time of the year.

Christmas Curveball by Shari Mikels

Professional baseball pitcher Kevin Ganlin is forced to retire early due to an injury and returns home, where he tries to avoid seeing his best friend’s “off-limits” little sister as much as possible. When Rachel unexpectedly shows up for a visit—that turns into a sleepover after an icy mishap—Kevin stops trying to ignore his feelings for her and instead works on convincing her he’s worth the risk to her heart. But she’s already been hurt badly in the past, and he has his work cut out for him to prove to her he’s not the player—off the field— he once was.

Kissing Her Scrooge by Kinley Cade

When the town’s prim and proper pageant president meets a sexy, loner tree farmer who doesn’t celebrate the holiday season, she decides she’d rather be more naughty than nice. They couldn’t be more wrong for each other but perhaps that’s just right. Together, they’ll both learn the season is nothing like they always believed and first impressions—while sometimes awkwardly hilarious—aren’t always true.

All I’m Asking For Anthology contains: Tinsel My Heart, Mine Under the Mistletoe, Season of Second Chances

Tinsel My Heart by Christi Barth

Producing a holiday spectacular is hard enough work. Doing it with a director who hates everything about Christmas is twice as hard. And when that director is her bad-boy crush from high school, things look impossible…until the kissing starts…

Season of Second Chances by Brighton Walsh

Claire never thought she’d see Logan again, especially after breaking off their engagement two years prior, but a sudden, intense snowstorm strands her at the airport in Chicago on Christmas Eve. The magic of the season has thrown them together again, and Logan isn’t going to sit back and let this opportunity pass him by. As they fight their intense chemistry–and eventually succumb to it–Logan works hard at making the most of the second chance he’s been given before the snow stops and Claire flies out of his life for good.
