Event planner, Grace Stewart, learned the hard way that the only thing more painful than broken bones was a broken heart. When her fiancé dumped her after learning she had Osteogenesis Imperfecta ('brittle bone disease'), Grace swore off all men.

 

That is, until she and super sexy pediatric orthopedic surgeon, Raphael Herrera, are partnered up to host the hospital's annual Pediatric Holiday Cookie Bazaar. With the help of two meddling matchmakers and a precocious foster kid, Grace soon realizes she and Rafe's chemistry is cooking more than Rafe's world-famous gingersnaps. 

After a whirlwind week of rare snowstorms, unlikely decorations, and Rafe's all-too-appealing company, Grace starts to wonder if their partnership might just be the perfect recipe for a happily ever after.

OH, PFEFFERNÜSSE!

The Stewart Sisters Book Two 
Christmas Stollen

*Published by The Wild Rose Press, Christmas Cookies Series, 2022

Harmony Stewart has the ingredients for a perfect life: a precocious daughter, substantial wealth, and a supportive family. The only potential improvement would be a second shot at love. Since she’s always had a thing for doctors, Harmony’s determined to meet Mr. Right at the hospital’s Holiday Cookie Bazaar and recruits cantankerous German baker Abelard Durchdenwald with a simple deal: his cookies for her assistance in landing him his dream job.

Abel adds unexpected—and much-needed—spice to Harmony’s days, so when issues arise with Abel’s visa, she impulsively offers a fake engagement that stirs up trouble with her well-connected ex-husband, Chance. If her ex uncovers Abel and Harmony’s deception, the consequences could be catastrophic. She should scrap the plan and start from scratch, but that would mean letting go of the baker who’s turning out to be sweeter than his desserts.

 Eight Nights of Apricot Cookies by Roni Denholtz

     Erica Fine has lost a cherished family recipe: the apricot cookies her late grandmother made every year at Hanukkah. When she meets new neighbor Noah Zelman, she is immediately attracted to him. But with a cheating boyfriend in her past, Erica doesn't trust easily.
     Noah has been hurt in the past too. But he's eager to help Erica as she searches for her grandmother's favorite recipes. His one request is that he test out the recipes she's found on the internet as Erica experiments with trying to recreate her grandmother's cookies.
     The more time they spend together, the more their feelings grow. Will they find the treasured recipe? And what happens when their quest is over?

Shortbread Shakedown by Sofia Aves

      A package determined to derail his scheduled future delivered by a mystery woman. A tiny note hints at who she is—and how to find her.
     When veteran and acting Brigadier General Dominic Cage returns from deployment days before Christmas, he's unprepared for the shortbread cookies pressed into his hands in a case of mistaken identity by a stunning woman. Unable to forget her, Cage trusts Violet's promise of a true Christmas—until the lines of his reality blur.
     Damaged and resolute, and unable to escape the gunfire that haunts him, Cage's choice could cost them everything.

A Butter Brickle Debacle

     When you're used to everything going wrong, how can you recognize what’s right?
     Unjustly fired from her big city PR job, Eris McMillan agrees to nanny her toddler and preteen nieces in small town Beech Bay. Sure, she has a history of disasters in her wake and knows nothing about kids, but she needs the time to strategize and rebuild her career.
     Fortunately, the town's favorite son, Treat Rogers, needs her help to save his family's ice cream shop from her ex-boyfriend's corporation. If she can outsmart her ex and save Treat's business without any of her usual mishaps, she just may salvage her career.
     That is, if she can avoid the biggest disaster of all: falling for Treat.
