The stories in this collection are sure to get readers into the holiday spirit. Each author breathes new life into somewhat clichéd romance plot to create truly memorable stories.

Alison Kent’s characters in “This Time Next Year” find themselves stranded in a snow storm. Romance blossoms, but will it last when the heroine must leave the country for a year? Calliope from Jaci Burton’s “A Rare Gift” is certain she can brighten up Wyatt’s Christmas. But it would be so much easier if he wasn’t her sister’s ex. The hero and heroine from HelenKay Dimon’s “It’s Not Christmas Without You” struggle with sustaining long distance love. And Shannon Stacey’s “Mistletoe and Margaritas” brings together a widow and her best guy friend, just in time for the holidays. (CARINA PRESS, Dec., dl., $9.99)
