For This Christmas Only

He was successful in business but not in love...

His book inspired her to return to school

But he no longer believes his own advice.

After nearly dying in a plane crash, financial guru Eli Taylor wants to find meaning in his life. A chance encounter at a small town’s Yule log lighting leads to an evening spent as the fake boyfriend of his superfan Mallory Ames. When she finds herself homeless for the holidays, he invites her to stay with him as his fake girlfriend, so he can show his siblings what a loving partnership should look like. The arrangement will end when the new year begins…or will it?

Gingerbread & Jingle Bells

You never get a second chance at a first kiss…

or do you?

She’s a big-city executive with a cool head for business.
He’s a small-town veterinarian with a passion for saving injured wildlife.

As children, they’d been the best of friends, until the day Eve had so determinedly—and somewhat disastrously—kissed Daniel on the lips, just before his family moved back to England.

This December, they're both back in town, and Eve's grandmother is on a mortifyingly obvious matchmaking mission. But Daniel has come back to stay; Eve is leaving as soon as the holiday rush at her family’s bakery is over. What good would it do for Eve to fall for the tall, dark, and British version of her childhood sidekick?


Yet the more time they spend together, the harder it is to resist the temptation to take a second chance at that first kiss.

After all, one little kiss before Christmas won't change their lives… will it?
