Handbag and Book w #author Melissa Keir: More Christmas Lovin' #boxedset #Christmasstories #bargainshopping


I’m a bargain shopper. Most of my handbags come from Target…on clearance. After my husband decided to splurge and get me a quality leather purse, I literally wore it out. We were on vacation and trolling the re-sale shops in a quaint little town in Northern Michigan when I spotted this purse on a rack.
 
First, my husband had to be sure it was leather and when I checked the interior space, I was pleased as well. It was perfect, so I bought it and filled it, then threw away the one in tatters while still in the middle of the store!
Brighten this holiday season with seven stories from New York Times, USA Today, national bestselling, and award-winning authors. Grab a cup of your favorite cocoa, coffee or tea, a holiday treat and settle in with the authors from More Christmas Lovin’ for a festive holiday read.

Santa for Christmas by Lisa Kumar. A sexy elf who hates everything about Christmas is forced to be Santa and must go into the seething heart of humanity—the abode of a beautiful single mother and her child in order to save them.

An EverAfter Christmas by K.S. Thomas.  Sailor Belle is no stranger to adventure, so being stranded in a blizzard three days before her wedding, is not about to stop her from marrying the man of her dreams. But then, as the obstacles keep coming, she clings to her last hope - it’s the season for miracles, and she may need one to get her EverAfter Christmas.

Holiday Homecoming by Melissa Keir. Two broken hearts mend as love blossoms, but when danger comes calling, can the two loners learn to rely on each other or will they lose all they have found?

Mistletoe & Ashes by RaeAnne Hadley. Tiffany knew the threats of being a firefighter on the Hot Shots team. She embraced the heat and the danger but she could have never predicted that her heart and her mind would be in peril. Could a Christmas miracle save her or would she end up as ashes?

Seduction at the Christmas Court by Jenna Jaxon. Lord and Lady Longford have journeyed to the Christmas Court of King Edward III to wait upon the king and take part in some Yuletide merriment. When Geoffrey is suddenly called to war, and rumors of his death arise, Alyse fends off an old suitor who wants to renew their friendship. But how long will he take “No” for an answer?

All I Want For Christmas by Deb Julienne. Who knew one little boy’s Christmas wish could change so many lives?

The Christmas Fantasy by D’Ann Lindun. Widower Christian Vega believes he’ll never find true love again, until an actress catches his eye. But she’s way out of this cowboy’s league. Hope Snowden swears to never date another out-of-work actor again. Then she falls for a cowboy-turned-stuntman. Is it love, or just a Christmas fantasy?

Excerpt from Holiday Homecoming by Melissa Keir:

Tanner studied the woman. Her strawberry-blonde hair slid around her shoulders like waves, colors a mix like the fall leaves on a tree: red, gold, and light brown. Her tresses were thick, with a little natural curl. She obviously didn’t hit the salon to style it each week like his sister did. He glanced at her fingers. No wedding ring and no shiny high-end polish. In fact, her nails were uneven and short, as if she’d been chewing on them.

The woman’s pain over the crash and then smiles at his daughter had his heart beating faster. It wasn’t the practiced expression he’d often seen of the women he’d dated in New York, donned to make him think they were “good with children,” but more of a shy, small-town variety. With the way she looked at the baby in her arms, he knew she’d never be a danger to his daughter. Love radiated from her as she rocked the baby on her hip but still managed to discuss the book in his daughter’s hands.

The woman’s clothes dwarfed her body. Worn and out of style, they appeared more like hand-me-downs than her everyday fashion, but it was the contents of her cart that had him thinking she didn’t have much money. Only generic store brands and minimal things. No splurges for coffee or soda. No treats of ice cream or steaks. The picture she painted was one of poverty, as if she lived on the streets, no place for a baby.

His sister’s idea flashed through his mind. Maybe he’d run into a woman who could help him with his work schedule as well as caring for his daughter. Trusting his gut had gotten Tanner a successful Manhattan restaurant. Maybe he should trust it again. As he enveloped his daughter in a hug, he vowed to at least offer.

My pleasure. It's always best to shop clearance first.

Melissa Keir said...

Or in my case, the resale shops!! :) Too bad I didn't find a winning lottery ticket inside!

Angela Adams said...

I don't know what I find more eye-catching -- the photo of that purse or the book cover (smile!). Happy Holidays, Melissa!

Vicki Batman, sassy writer of sexy and funny fiction, blogger at Handbags, Books...Whatever said...

Haha, Angela. Probably the cover.

Melissa Keir said...

Thanks Angela... Hard to decide... Why not take both!
