Magical Cookies make for a Magical Love Story

This month, I have a new release, Marry-Me Christmas, which is still in stores, if you're looking for a Christmas read with a mix of yummy treats (lots and lots of cookies in this story, including some magical ones, rumored to make people fall in love) and a snowstorm or two. Not to mention a hunky hero who has quit believing in Christmas, and a heroine who loves the holiday.

I always write my Christmas stories during the Christmas season (I just finished writing next year's A Princess for Christmas a week or so ago) because it's so much easier for me to get into that holiday mood. I'm already wrapped up in decorations and Bing Crosby tunes, and last year was no exception.

It helps, of course, if there's a nice little snowstorm brewing outside (which keeps me from venturing out to the mall too often ;-). And, when the holiday is over and I'm not quite ready to give up the tree or the ornaments, writing or reading a holiday story helps me to hold onto Christmas just a little longer. Not just the love stories, but the best of the spirit and the happiness that is the wonderfulness of the season.

I hope all of you and yours had a wonderful holiday season!
