When a blizzard prevents teacher Caroline Crawley from getting home for the first Christmas after her mother’s death, a stranger makes her an offer she can’t refuse.
Dr. Colin Pepper is traveling home, but without the non-existent girlfriend his family is expecting.
Can a pretend girlfriend be Colin’s true Christmas miracle?
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
When Aly asked if I would like to review her new “sweet holiday book”, I jumped. Her books have that feel good vibe you get when reading.
The story is about Caroline who is stuck in the airport trying to get home to her dad in Iowa for Christmas. She meets and chats with a kind and attractive man who hands her the phone and says “hey talk to my mom would ya.”…yup and that is how this whole story starts.
Colin told a small white lie to his family about bringing a non-existent girlfriend home for the holiday. When he finds out Caroline’s story, he offers to help her if she helps him. Upon entering his childhood home, he throws the final grenade at her…she is his liv- in girlfriend!!
Caroline is a trooper, but she enjoys the family time since she is an only child and being around Colin’s mom since she has lost her own mom helps to heal her heart. There is insta-love but honestly this whole book is just a feel-good story.
We do have some conflict in the form of LAURA….Growl…not a fan of her at all but the end of the story was adorable and I can say I enjoyed reading it the night before Thanksgiving when the Holiday seasons officially kicks off.
Indiana. He said we had to move to Indiana. Was I in for a shock. Actually, no, but it would have been a great story. I love living and raising my family in the Midwest. Living with a racer spurred my imagination and I created The Racer’s Widow series. Since then, I’ve gone on to start the Homecoming series with A Home to Love.

Jade Wilder finds herself standing in the office of Elite Crime Unit because pixies are after her brother. Yes, you heard right. Pixies! Mean, ruthless, evil pixies. Her house has been ransacked, her brother is now missing, and she needs help.
As Jade’s story unfolds, dark elf and badass, Drake, can’t deny the danger she is in or his instant attraction to the beautiful green-eyed human. He appoints himself her protector and soon realizes that walking away from her once the job is done will be next to impossible.
I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Claiming Jade is fantasy brought to life! Claiming Jade? How about I am claiming Drake! Haha! This is one of those insta-love type stories but the way these two push and pull at each other is hilarious! I love how the author can give us a great storyline but add the wit and charm that will make me smile throughout the whole story.
For Jade it was incredibly difficult to ask for help from the paranormal community. But when she does I don’t think she expected that she was in as much danger as she actually is. Now she has Drake to deal with. He is an incredibly fierce half elf that has an intense attraction to Jade that she is more than happy to reciprocate. Reading along and seeing how Drakes comrades all interact with him and how he can be a big softy is super sweet. This is a fast paced story with lots of ups and downs… but absolutely, never a dull moment! If you want something to lift your spirits, make you smile, get a little hot and action packed, then Claiming Jade is a great read!
