Cynthia Woolf


Charlotte Walker is running for her life from her former brothers-in-law. She’s widowed, pregnant and lost in a blizzard, sure she’ll die before ever seeing her sweet baby’s face.


Adam Masters lives alone in the mountains of Montana Territory outside of Morgan’s Crossing. The last thing he expects to find is a half-frozen woman stuck in a snow drift. He takes the woman back to his cabin and is shocked to see she’s expecting.


Weeks after delivering her baby, on Christmas Day, Adam and Charlotte realize there is an attraction between them, but one that Adam refuses to act upon.

What will happen when the man she thought dead comes looking for revenge?


Read A Family For Christmas

P.A. Estelle

Twelve years ago Jim Rustle packed up and left his home in Idaho and hasn’t looked back. He gets quite an awakening when Lisa Parker, whom he hadn’t seen in all those years, breaks into a business meeting and uses some colorful adjectives to tell him just what she thinks of him. Sparks fly between the two when he decides to follow Lisa home and sees what has happened in his absence. Is the anger stemming from the present, or from the past? It’s Christmas time. Can an ornament from years past help heal betrayals that have festered for years?


Elizabeth McMurphy is an up and coming high powered attorney and is after vengeance, involving one of the richest and most powerful families in Colorado. Steve York is an obnoxious reporter that thinks the ice queen has gone too far and does all he can to get under her skin.

When one of the worst blizzards in history hits Colorado during the Christmas holiday and leaves a hurt Steve York, stranded with Elizabeth in a mountain cabin, her hatred for him starts to thaw. But this attorney has a secret that she will guard, even at the risk of losing her only chance at love.


Read The Unwanted Christmas Guest

Christmas Eve is five days away. This is the day Sheriff Jim Hawkins will marry Charlene Lehman, the woman who will make his life complete and be the mother of his six-year-old daughter, Sally.

Adam Jacobson, a wanted murderer, is apprehended and it is up to Jim Hawkins to deliver him to Pueblo, Colorado. “I’ll only be gone for two days, Charlene. Nothing in this world will keep me from making you my wife.”

True to his word, Jim makes it home only to find both Charlene and his daughter missing. Heavy snow has covered any tracks to their whereabouts and nobody has seen a thing. All searches have come up empty.

Will the magic of the Christmas season come through or has Jim lost everything he has come to cherish?
