Holiday Hop & Giveaway: Featuring Jill Shalvis, Carolyn Brown, Grace Burrowes, Terry Spear, and Sarah Morgan


Ready or not, Christmas is right around the corner, which means shopping, food, family — and holiday romances! This season, award winning authors Jill Shalvis, Carolyn Brown, Terry Spear, and Sarah Morgan each have Christmas romances releasing. To get readers into the holiday spirit, the authors answer the following question: Your hero and heroine get snowed in. What one item do they want with them?


Jill Shalvis author of One in a Million

If Callie and Tanner got snowed in, they wouldn’t need anything, not a single item. In fact, if I know them, and I’m pretty sure I do, they’ll be shedding whatever items they have on them. 🙂

Carolyn Brown author of Cowboy Boots for Christmas

Callie would want some of those boots that she adamantly refuses when the snow gets up over her shoe tops.

After this, I think the main thing Callie and Finn would want when they can barely get out of the house, is simply nothing more than for the door connecting their rooms to never stick or to start squeaking in the middle of the night.

Grace Burrowes author of What A Lady Needs for Christmas

Tooth powder. Dante and Joan are practical sorts.

Terry Spear author of A Highland Wolf Christmas

Each other. In A Highland Wolf Christmas, Guthrie MacNeill and Calla Stewart have their wolf halves to keep them and each other warm if it gets too bad. All they need is each other. You realize more babies are born when the electricity goes out, right? Same with snowstorms. That’s the best way to keep warm—or…hot.

Sarah Morgan author of Maybe This Christmas

Matches. That way they can light a fire and candles. Perfect for a romantic night together.


Jill Shalvis author of One in a Million

The final book in New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis’s Lucky Harbor series. This trilogy will be published back-to-back-to-back to build excitement for the romantic conclusion to the series. The series appeals to fans of Susan Mallery, Susan Andersen, Carly Phillips, and Rachel Gibson.

As the brains behind wedding site, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles . . . to the tears. It’s that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she’s sworn off love . . .

Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past-and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he’s still paying for his own mistakes? It’s hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there’s something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man she-and his son-deserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?

Carolyn Brown author of Cowboy Boots for Christmas
All she wants under the Christmas tree is a pair of cowboy boots…

Callie Brewster didn’t figure she’d ever see Finn O’Donnell again when they parted company in Afghanistan. But when her young nephew witnesses a killing, everything changes. The government says they’ll put him in witness protection, but Callie doesn’t trust anyone to protect her nephew-except for Finn O’Donnell.

All Finn wants for Christmas is some peace and quiet on his newly purchased ranch. But he owes Callie Brewster his life, and he always repays a debt. Now there’s a woman in the house who joined the army to get away from ranching, a boy who is scared of his shadow, and a feud going on amongst the other ranchers. Yet in the midst of all the chaos Finn is happier and more at peace than he’s ever been before…

Grace Burrowes author of What A Lady Needs for Christmas

All she needs this Christmas is a suitable husband who can save her reputation.

Dante Hartwell is determined to make his business a success; but for that, he needs a wealthy wife with strong connections to the aristocracy. And when Lady Joan Flynn agrees to marry him, he sees his dreams becoming a reality.

What Dante doesn’t know is that Joan fears she may be pregnant with another man’s child-a man who has stolen not only her virtue, but her impressive fashion designs. As secrets begin to unfurl, Dante and Joan must make a decision: will they trust each other enough to fall in love and finally obtain the happiness they both secretly crave? Or will doubt overcome their increasing attraction?

Terry Spear author of A Highland Wolf Christmas

Sexy highland shapeshifters in kilts. Who says Christmas dreams don’t come true?

Financial advisor Guthrie MacNeill isn’t a complete Scrooge-he just hates the enormous cost associated with the Christmas holiday season. Needless to say, when his pack hires a party planner to decorate the castle, he’s at his wit’s end. Until Calla Stewart arrives on the scene with her mistletoe in hand.

Calla has never had a client as difficult as Guthrie, but she’s determined to give the pack a Christmas season they will never forget-no matter how much it costs. But when her ex-fiance begins stalking her and threatening her safety, Guthrie decides to loosen his grip on the purse strings and let out his inner Highland warrior wolf to protect her.

Sarah Morgan author of Maybe This Christmas

“Uplifting, sexy and warm, Sarah Morgan’s O’Neil Brothers series is perfection.”—Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author

This winter, ex-skiing champion, reformed heartbreaker and single dad Tyler O’Neil has only one mission—making sure his daughter, Jess, has the best Christmas ever. The fact that his best friend, Brenna, is also temporarily moving into his chalet at the overbooked Snow Crystal resort is a delicious distraction he’s simply going to have to ignore. Theirs is the one relationship he’s never ruined, and he’s not about to start now.

Ski pro Brenna Daniels knows all about the perils of unrequited love—she’s been in love with Tyler for years. But living with him is absolute torture… How can she concentrate on being his friend when he’s sleeping in the room next door? Then when Tyler kisses Brenna, suddenly the relationship she’s always dreamed of feels so close she could almost touch it. Could this be the Christmas her dreams of a happy-ever-after finally come true?
