The Christmas Princess is a USA Today Must-Read Romance! @PatriciaMcLinn #amreading #romance #wedding

the-christmas-princessTHE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS  is a USA Today Must-Read romance!

In its “Recommended Romance” column, USA Today says:

“McLinn writes a delightful, romantic tale with The Christmas Princess, which holds all the coziness of the holiday spirit. The Wedding Series continues with April and Hunter and the unusual assignment — pretending to be a princess — that stands between them. While the request may seem straightforward and doable, especially from Hunter’s perspective, the exercise of turning April into this fantasy ignites emotions and feelings that can render him speechless.

“McLinn is an expert at revealing the layers enveloping her characters. With each reveal, sometimes exquisitely subtle, we are pulled in deeper to be active participants in the emotionally charged, yet heart-melting romance. This is Happy Holidays with a grateful sigh.”

THE CHRISTMAS PRINCESS

In Book 5 of USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s Wedding Series, the stories shift from Chicago to Washington, D.C., and wrap in a little royalty, beginning with the enchanting “The Christmas Princess.”

Christmas isn’t looking so jolly for April Gareaux. Her job is uninspiring, her engagement is off, and she has nowhere to live. Yes, her family would take her in, especially Leslie and Grady Roberts and their friends who have become her extended family. But it’s time she stops relying on them. Then comes an extraordinary offer – spend the holidays in Washington with King Jozef of Bariavak as his possible long-lost granddaughter. Even more extraordinary is the man behind the offer and the one who will be beside her through the coming weeks, Hunter Pierce.

Determination and grit have moved Hunter beyond his past in Bariavak. Yet, here it is standing in front of him again, refusing to be ignored. … Just like his reactions to April. How can he fight what he’s feeling when they’re together all the time?

King Jozef has known tragedy in his life. Now comes this lovely young woman bringing joy to his holidays. How can he resist dabbling in some royal matchmaking? 

A vibration started at the base of April’s skull and zinged down her spine. “You’ve been watching me.”

Hunter’s eyelids lowered and rose once. That was it. One blink. Otherwise, he could have been a lump of granite — albeit a nicely shaped lump.

SYNOPSIS:

Amishwoman Sara Lapp, all but shunned for studying with the local doctor to become a midwife, is shocked that, after months of waiting, her first call comes from “Mad” Adam Zuckerman, a self-appointed outcast. Adam doesn’t want her to attend at a birth, but to tend to his children because his wife has died in childbed.

Adam wants to love his children, but he is afraid he will hurt them in the way his father hurt him. Without his late wife, Abby, to protect them, Adam must find someone else to care for the girls. He can think of only one woman brave enough, Spinster Sara Lapp, the little midwife whose passion for things beyond her control is greater than is good for her.

Though Sara knows the four little girls belong with their father, how can she leave them with a man who seems not to care for them? As much as she loves and wants the girls, she will only take them long enough to teach Adam to love them. Then Adam falls from the barn loft and Sara moves in to look after him. But in the Amish community a man and woman living together must marry or be shunned. The Bishop takes a stand and Sara and Adam are forced to face the greatest challenge of their lives.

REVIEWS:

“Fans of the TV show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” will adore this novel! Sara came across to me as almost a mirror image of Dr. Quinn. She is strong when need be (stubborn), stands up for those in need (sharp tongued), and has so much love to give everyone. She also must deal with the Amish ordnung (rules) which makes everything near impossible. I found myself cheering her on to victory. The author, Annette Blair, has a real writing talent. She inserts tiny things that the reader does not immediately notice, but makes the reader come to care for the characters as if they were kin. You may need tissues nearby at some points of the story. Another award winner that I cannot recommend highly enough.” Detra Fitch, HUNTRESS REVIEWS

“Annette Blair writes a wonderfully insightful Amish historical romance … Fans who appreciate a deep look at a different lifestyle will enjoy THE BUTTERFLY GARDEN & JACOB’S RETURN for their deep look at the Amish …” Harriet Klausner

“Those of you who are fans of Annette Blair or Amish romances will be thrilled with her newest book! It seems like forever since Blair’s first Amish romance JACOB’S RETURN was on the shelves. Her second … set in Ohio this time, is every bit as good as her first. I found myself transported …” Shelby, ARR

“Sensual and thematic tension, heartache, and Annette Blair’s fine writing and wit combine in equal measure to make “The Butterfly Garden” a unique, romantic, and thoroughly pleasing novel. It’s a keeper.” Michelle Buonfiglio, Romance: B(u)Y the Book http://www.wnbc.com/romance/index.html , wnbc entertainment

“A love story as memorable as the characters who share it… richly detailed…warm, witty, touching. A top-notch read. A gifted writer. Debbie Jett, RRAH

Bestselling western romance authors, Kat Flannery and Alison Bruce take you on an exciting journey…

Twin sisters separated by war, bound by love…

After the death of their father, twin sisters Maggie and Matty Becker are forced to take positions with officers’ families at a nearby fort. When the southern states secede, the twins are separated, and they find themselves on opposite sides of America’s bloodiest war.

In the south, Maggie travels with the Hamiltons to Bellevue, a plantation in west Tennessee. When Major Hamilton is captured, it is up to Maggie to hold things together and deal with the Union cavalry troop that winters at Bellevue. Racism, politics and a matchmaking stepmother test Maggie’s resourcefulness as she fights for Bellevue, a wounded Confederate officer and the affections of the Union commander.

In the north, Matty discovers an incriminating letter in General Worthington’s office, and soon she is on the run. With no one to turn to for help, she drugs the wealthy Colonel Cole Black and marries him, in hopes of getting the letter to his father, the governor of Michigan. But Cole is not happy about being married, and Matty’s life becomes all about survival.

READERS LOVE THIS BOOK!

“Maggie and Matty Becker will enchant you as they struggle for respect, survival, and love in the Civil War’s troubled time. You’ll sigh with pleasure as you finish each story.”
—Caroline Clemmons, author of Bluebonnet Bride

“Two very talented authors . . .The characters and the times are well depicted in this short novel. I highly recommend this novel to Civil War enthusiasts and readers who enjoy a well-written historical romance. If you like intrigue, mystery and romance, this book is for you. It will hold your attention and is a quick read that you won’t be able to put down.” —Katherine Boyer, Tear a Page Blog

“Double your reading pleasure with twin passions—two novellas featuring twins Maggie and Matty, and heroes who’ll steal your heart. Alison Bruce and Kat Flannery penned stories that play on your senses like a sonata. A must read!” —Jacquie Rogers, award-winning author of Much Ado About Madams

ABOUT ALISON BRUCE:
Alison Bruce has an honors degree in history and philosophy, which has nothing to do with any regular job she’s held since. A liberal arts education did prepare her to be a writer, however. She penned her first novel during lectures while pretending to take notes.

Alison writes mysteries, romance, westerns and fantasy. Her protagonists are marked by their strength of character, the ability to adapt (sooner or later) to new situations and to learn from adversity.

ABOUT KAT FLANNERY:

Kat Flannery has loved writing ever since she was a girl. She is often seen jotting her ideas down in a little black book. When not writing or in school, she enjoys snuggling on her couch with a hot chocolate and a great book.

Kat has had her writing published in numerous periodicals. She is now hard at work on the next novel. When not focusing on her creative passions, she is busy with her three boys and doting husband.
