Kindle Monthly Deal: Deck the Halls

Are you looking for a great holiday read but finding your budget a little stretched? (I get it. Between presents and parties and groceries and decorations, December can get a little tight.) Never fear – one of my Christmas books, DECK THE HALLS, is on for half price all month long as a Kindle Monthly Deal! Get it for just $1.49 at Amazon.

I wrote this one after readers kept telling me how much they loved George from Somebody Like You and asking if he would have his own happy ever after. If you like redemption stories, Christmas spirit, and small town holiday settings, you’ll LOVE this one!

Strength, forgiveness, and holiday spirit abound in this Darling, VT Christmas romance with shades of It’s A Wonderful Life.

Amy Merck has been searching for closure about her brother’s death for years, and when she tracks down his brother-in-arms in Darling, she’s sure she’ll finally get the answers she seeks. But George is still dealing with PTSD, and seeing his best friend’s sister reminds him not only of the friend he lost, but the girl he kissed before leaving on that final deployment.

As the holidays draw near, Amy’s kindness and patience reach in and loosen grief’s hold on the veteran’s heart. But why would a successful, beautiful woman like Amy want to be with a man who is still broken and a mere step up from homelessness?

Amy sees how George cares for the people in the cozy little town, and before long she’s lost her heart to the kind, generous warrior. Can she convince the town to show George how loved and valued he is in time for Christmas—and his own holiday miracle?

SOMEONE TO LOVE:

A widower with two adorable boys and a Bohemian beauty who owns the local café are brought together in this emotional, heartwarming novel in Donna Alward’s Darling, VT series.

Widower Ethan Gallagher’s biggest challenge is just making it day to day. A firefighter and single father to two adorable boys, he juggles work and parenthood with the help of his family. When he volunteers at the temporary food bank site, he finds himself face to face with Willow Dunaway, owner of the Purple Pig Café. He’s still not over his wife’s death, but the carefree beauty has him thinking about living again…

Willow has worked hard to find inner peace and serenity, but Ethan challenges her at every turn, and before long the broody single dad gets under her skin. The passion between them is incendiary, and she also finds herself falling for his little boys, which resurrects all sorts of painful memories she thought she’d put behind her and disrupts her carefully calm existence.

But when Willow’s deepest secret is finally revealed, their fragile happiness is threatened. Ethan knows love is impossible without trust—but trusting is hard when falling in love is the most frightening thing of all.

You can go home again…

After a heartbreaking divorce, Laurel Stone returns to Darling looking for a do-over. She’s certainly not searching for romance, especially from Aiden Gallagher, the boy who broke her heart in high school. She’s happy to focus on her new business, until a theft sends Aiden – now a cop – to her doorstep.

Aiden’s left his teenage hellion years in the rear-view mirror, and he wishes more than anything to have a second chance with Laurel. But she’s understandably cautious, even as the chemistry still sizzles between them whenever their paths cross.

When Laurel’s new employee, a homeless veteran, is assaulted, the two must unite to find his assailant. The barriers between them tumble one by one, until Aiden comes up with a plan to give Laurel what she’s always secretly dreamed of. But can Laurel move beyond the hurts of the past to embrace a new future?
