The year of Riverbend Romance novellas will come to an end with the release of Merry Kisses.
Fired from her retail position for saying Merry Christmas to a customer, Sonya Simmons chafes at the over-commercialization of the season and the difficulties of finding a new job. If only she’d actually said Merry Christmas instead of Merry Kisses to the tall, good-looking man buying enough toys for at least a dozen children. How embarrassing!
It was fun to fluster the pretty toy store clerk, but Heath Collins, the mall’s volunteer Santa Claus, hadn’t meant to get her fired. When his elf assistant comes down with a bad cold, Heath offers Sonya a few days’ work, only to discover she believes Santa is nothing but a liar and a fraud instead of an opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives.
Can Sonya and Heath embrace each other — opinions, traditions, and all — in time to share merry kisses for Christmas?
I’ll be sad to close the Riverbend chapter of my writing career! It’s been a lot of fun getting to know this town and its inhabitants this year. If you’ve missed any of the novellas, you’ll want to pick them up because everyone is back for the grand finale in Merry Kisses!
Secretly Yours (winter):
The boy who was never good enough is now a far better man than she deserves.
Pinky Promise (spring):
How can two single parents fall in love for real with a pair of mini-matchmakers pushing from both sides — pinky promises or not?
Sweet Serenade (summer):
Will secrets from the past drown their future, or can this idyllic summer romance lead to a lifetime of sweet serenades?
Team Bride (fall):
Can Corbin convince Sarah he’s ready to settle down and make her the head of her own Team Bride, or will their past keep getting in the way?
Merry Kisses (Christmas):
Can a disillusioned toy store clerk and a mall Santa resolve their differences in time for merry kisses at Christmas?
