A collection of stories by

Echoes From Heaven Mackenzie McKade Celena, a Christmas angel, has been given the devil of an assignment to teach Lon Townsend how to love again. But the man is bad to the bone, a playboy to the nth degree, with no desire to change his wicked ways. Not to mention he makes her incorporeal body burn with desire, which is wrong on so many levels. The redheaded beauty in Lon's bed is surely the present his friends promised. When she explains she's been sent down from Heaven to find him a mate, he knows she must be a fantastic actress or certifiably insane, but she's the sexiest little nut he's ever seen. Christmas Help Her Isabo Kelly Paige Rogers is overworked and exhausted from trying to make her dream of running an art school come true so exhausted she hasn't even managed a sexy thought in longer than she can remember. Then she finds a mysterious present under the Christmas tree a book containing erotic pictures of a man who looks suspiciously like her upstairs neighbor, Ethan Jackson. Suddenly sexy thoughts are no longer a problem. But when the real Ethan Jackson shows up at her front door looking for his new cat, Paige realizes she wants more than just the fantasy. With a little help from some mysteriously placed mistletoe and an unusually clever cat, Paige learns just how far her Christmas fantasy can go.

Someone so hot he could melt the polar ice cap. Someone named Steve who is all she ever dreamed of finding beneath her sprig of mistletoe. Can working as an elf for a few weeks bring Liz a holiday gift that will last a lifetime? Santa s X-Mas Lani Aames Revising a Christmas standard, Chelsea Lowell employs The Twelve Ways of X-mas to bag her very own Santa Rob Sinclair who is taking a sexy turn in the red velvet suit.
