Holidays are rife with stress. Grab your hot chocolate, curl up by the fire, and give yourself the gift of love with these seven Christmas romances that are sure to fill your heart with holiday spirit.
Heather C. Myers – Full disclosure: I am an acquired taste. I’m a typical blonde Orange County suburbanite who says ‘like’ more than necessary, laughs loud and probably obnoxiously, and loves to dance in the rain. I’m a 26 year old college graduate with more than a few tricks up my sleeve, and I also happen to be a pretty big Ducks fan. Oh, and I’m a writer. Like, for real.
Kait Nolan – Kait Nolan is stuck in an office all day, sometimes juggling all three of her jobs at once with the skill of a trained bear—sometimes with a similar temperament. After hours, she uses her powers for good, creating escapist fiction. This Mississippi native has something for everyone, from short and sweet to Southern contemporary romance to action-packed paranormal—all featuring heroes you’d want to sweep you off your feet and rescue you from work-day drudgery. When not working or writing, Kait’s hanging out in her kitchen cooking and wishing life were a Broadway musical.
Cherie Marks – For Cherie Marks, it all started with an old-fashioned typewriter. When the family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in her head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when she pulled out a finished page, she knew this was for her. Since then, she’s graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.
She’s a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning—a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, she loves to make people laugh and smile. Her goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.
Joanne Dannon – Joanne Dannon has been living in the world of romance for as long as she can remember. From doodling love hearts on her school notebooks to regularly reading romances, Joanne’s world has always been filled with the excitement of love stories. So it was just a natural for Joanne to begin writing the genre she’s always loved.
Formerly a policy writer by day and romance writer by night, Joanne now spends full time writing the books she adores. Creating heroes for readers to fall in love with and heroines to cheer on, her characters are people readers can identify with.
Joanne writes to give her readers the experience she still loves to savor—indulging in a sigh-worthy-happily-ever-after, being swept away from the everyday by diving into a delicious romance novel.
Joanne Dannon, an Australian, is a happily married mother of two heroes-in-training who loves spending time with friends and family. She can be found on Facebook and her website www.joannedannon.com
chatting about reading, writing, cooking, vintage-inspired dresses and all things romantic.
Melinda Hammond – Mel’s an authorpreneur, English teacher and podcaster who dreams of a life on the road full of adventures and handsome heroes, whilst making squizillions of dollars in book sales to pay for her chocolate fix. In the real world she writes novels for adults and kids, and offers her expert via online courses and writing retreats.
Tracey Pederson – Tracey Pedersen is an Australian author who’s finally accepted that she is meant to write, write, write! Romance writing has captured her imagination and she loves to write about crazy circumstances that just could happen in real life, with an extra twist thrown in.
Tracey is a risk taker who loves change – in 2012 she threw caution to the wind and took her family on a twelve month trip around the world. In 2014 she again took the family to live in Malaysia for a year of exploring South East Asia and eating yummy street food! In her spare time you can find her crocheting yet another blanket or posting outrageous things on Facebook!
Jolene Cazzola – An accidental author… maybe? For most of her life, Jolene never, ever, thought of herself as a writer – although she was always involved in the creative arts. Then, at the end of 2014, the idea of preserving experiences started to grow and flourish in her mind. Without any real thought about publishing, she began writing, just getting feelings and ideas down on paper. Much to her own delight, Love’s Illusions was the result. And to make things even better, Love’s Illusions, won the 2016 Maggie Award for Writing Excellence — Novel with Strong Romantic Elements — an honor she is still having a difficult time believing!
Finding she truly enjoyed the ‘writing journey’, her second book, Love’s Journey, was released in March 2016 and the third book in the series is underway.
Jolene currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida. When she’s not writing, she’s busy with pet rescue, making jewelry and stained glass and wishing her fantasies would come true.
