Under The Mistletoe
So I have a little surprise for you — I wrote a Lucky Harbor Christmas novella coming out 12/3. Now brace yourself, okay? UNDER THE MISTLETOE is going to be cheap, only $1.99, but … it’s also going to be digital only. Wait! Before you yell at me, know this — the novella is short. Real short, so if you don’t have an ereader, all is not lost. You can simply load the Kindle app or the Nook app onto your computer or phone and read it that way, and because it is short, you won’t get eyestrain.
Okay? We all okay? We can still be friends?
Here’s the cover:
Now for those of you who are up on all your Lucky Harbor reading, this is Mia’s story. Mia, all grown up from THE SWEETEST THING (Tara and Ford’s daughter). Don’t panic, you absolutely do NOT have to read THE SWEETEST THING before reading Under The Mistletoe.

Holding onto her hat, Mia ran along the streets on her killer four-inch red heels, her matching red skirt ruffling in the breeze. Late. She was late.
It was the story of her life.
Hey, Mrs. Claus! a construction worker yelled. I need some holiday spirit! Come on, mama, bring it over here!
This was accompanied by the hoots and hollers of the guys co-workers.
Mia flipped them off and kept running in tune to their raucous laughter. She might not be New York born or bred, but shed learned to fit in just fine.
Wow, are you real? a little kid asked in marvel a block later, taking in her costume. Is Santa real?
Yes! she told him, and kept running.
Except if thered really been a Santa Claus, shed happily crawl onto his lap and whisper her greatest wish to be picked. For her softball team, for her internship, for a relationship, it didnt matter. Getting picked meant everything to her, but somehow, she always ended up doing the picking.
Finally she skidded into the restaurant and stopped to catch her breath, smoothing down her Mrs. Claus outfit. She had a change of clothes in her bag; she just needed to get to the ladies room. Whirling to do just that, she plowed right into a warm, hard body.
Her first reaction was embarrassment at her costume. Granted, shed just made two hundred bucks serving drinks at an corporate Christmas party, but shed hoped to get into her cute little black dress before Nick had caught sight of her.
And then there was her second reaction, which was wow because he looked heart-stoppingly great tonight.
Youre thinking so hard your hairs smoking, he said, his voice low and sexy. Teasing.
Mia reached out to touch her hair but Nick caught her hand in his and smiled. Like the look, he said. Is it for me?
So how we doing? We all still friends? Anyone going to plan on reading this one? Because if you pre-order, you would totally and completely make my day. So thank you ahead of time, and let me just say, you look fantastic today.
