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.

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.

HIS MISTLETOE BRIDE by VANESSA KELLY (historical romance)

TUESDAY’S REVOLVING BOOK is the regency historical romance HIS MISTLETOE BRIDE by VANESSA KELLY.

PUBLISHER: KENSINGTON BOOKS http://tinyurl.com/8cl5qtw

WHERE YOU CAN BUY THE BOOK:
Kindle: http://tinyurl.com/9zo4d3e

Nook: http://tinyurl.com/8w6tesw

SYNOPSIS:
Blame It On The Mistletoe . . .

When Major Lucas Stanton inherited his earldom, he never dreamed his property would include the previous earl’s granddaughter. Phoebe Linville is a sparkling American beauty, yes, but with a talent for getting into trouble. Witness the compromising position that forced them into wedlock. Whisked away to Mistletoe Manor, his country estate, it isn’t long before she is challenging his rules–and surprising him in and out of bed–

Phoebe has no intention of bowing to Lucas’s stubbornness even though he offers all that she wants. His kisses and unexpected warmth are enticing, but Phoebe is determined to show the earl of Merritt what real love is all about. And if that takes twelve nights of delicious seduction by a roaring fire, she’s more than willing to reveal her gifts very slowly–

READ AN EXCERPT:
http://tinyurl.com/9798ccs

REVIEWS:
“Kelly combines wit, innocent sensuality, and seduction in this tale of a forced marriage between a beautiful plain-speaking pacifist Quaker and a handsome war hero who inherits a rundown earldom. In 1817, Phoebe Linville leaves joyless Philadelphia and the strident lectures of her half-brother for a new life in London under the loving protection of her aristocratic grandfather. When her grandfather dies, she becomes the “possession” of Maj. Lucas Stanton, the new Lord Merritt. A challenging adventure ensues when a determined Phoebe and stubborn Lucas wind up in a compromising position that requires them to wed. Compassionate Phoebe has her hands full, between loving a lord whose heart was broken by another and hiding secrets about smugglers. Regency fans will enjoy the lessons on Christmas traditions, the art of seduction, and the triumph of reconciliation and love.” ~ Publishers Weekly

“Kelly pairs an aristocratic former military officer with a young American Quaker in this emotionally intense and beautifully crafted novel. With a small overview of Quaker life, and a large dose of romance, Kelly satisfies readers till the last page.” ~ 4 stars, RT Book Reviews

“Wildly sexy and romantic, this unforgettable Christmas tale of a seemingly impossible love will warm your heart and send you straight to the mistletoe.” ~ Kieran Kramer, USA Today bestselling author of Regency romance.

“What an enchanting holiday tale…a delectable treat and the reward, a jolly good Christmas treat!” ~ 4 ½ stars, Affaire de Coeur Book Reviews
