She wants to create the perfect family Christmas…

Heiress Madeline Love has one last chance to impress her father and organize the perfect Christmas—their last one as a family before her father weds a younger woman and forgets about his only daughter.

Madeline wants to create some much-needed family memories in their historic Montana ranch that she’s always loved. All she needs is the help of one man, Seth Casey, ranch builder to the rich and famous, to give the neglected ranch a quick holiday facelift.

Contractor and architect Seth Casey has dreamed about buying the dilapidated Love property and restoring it to its former glory since he was old enough to swing a hammer. But when he finally gets the long-awaited call, it’s not what he hoped for.

Can they put their differences aside in order to make this a Christmas to remember?

Everybody loves a parade!

Well, everybody except Evan…

Evan, the county sheriff, knows that businesses are struggling in the small town of Clark Creek.

Could the parade bring about more than one Christmas miracle?

A Magical New York Christmas by Anita Hughes

Posted December 7, 2021 by Marsha in Author ARC, Contemporary Romance, NetGalley, St. Martin's Press / 0 Comments

A magical holiday love story set at the glamorous Plaza Hotel in New York City.

It’s Christmas week when 26-year-old Sabrina Post knocks on the door of the Vanderbilt suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, ready to accept the ghostwriting position for the memoir of Grayson Westcott—a famous art dealer.

A struggling journalist, Sabrina can’t believe her luck: a paycheck and six nights in her own suite at the Plaza. She feels like Eloise, the heroine from her favorite children’s books. To make the job even more exciting, Grayson recounts how he worked as a butler at the Plaza sixty years ago for none other than the author of the Eloise books, Kay Thompson.

What promises to be a perfect week is complicated when Sabrina meets Ian Wentworth, a handsome British visitor, at the hotel bar. When Ian assumes Sabrina is another wealthy guest at the hotel, she doesn’t correct him —a decision she doesn’t regret after learning that Ian is a member of the British aristocracy. But, things are not what they seem. The truth is: Ian is not a wealthy lord; he’s actually the personal secretary of Lord Spencer Braxton.

As the week unfolds, will Sabrina and Ian learn the truth about one another?

Katherine Vareck is in for the shock of her life when she learns upon her husband Meri’s accidental death that he had married two other women. Her entire business, along with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a royal supplier, is everything she’s been working for and now could be destroyed if word leaks about the three wives.

He spent the better part of his adult years avoiding Meri and the rest of his good-for-nothing family, so to be dragged back into the fold is…problematic. Even more so is the intrepid and beautiful Katherine, whom he cannot be falling for because she’s Meri’s widow. Or can he?

With a textile business to run and a strong friendship forming with Meri’s two other wives, Katherine doesn’t have time for much else. But there’s something about the warm, but compellingly taciturn Christian that draws her to him.

When Ellie Bloom’s life literally goes up in flames after an apartment fire, she slinks back to her sister’s house in the St. Louis suburb she’s avoided since her mom died.
