My Christmas Present - Another Contract

The Wild Rose Press has contracted my Regency Christmas novella, Mistletoe Everywhere, my third contract.

Here's the blurb (first pass, so it may change)

A man who sees mistletoe everywhere is mad--or in love.

Charles sees mistletoe. Not surprising, since he's spending Christmas at Mistletoe Manor. But, the mistletoe always hangs over Penelope, the despised lady who jilted him after their last meeting. And no one sees the mistletoe except him.

Penelope wants nothing to do with the faithless Charles, the man who cried off after she had accepted his marriage proposal. But he stares at her all the time. Or rather, he stares at the empty ceiling over her head. What does he see?

According to folklore, mistletoe is the plant of peace. Penelope and Charles, so full of hurt and anger, must decide if they will heed the mistletoe's message and make peace.

And I hope you will get what you want for Christmas, too.

And remember, books make great gifts! If you like Regency, try my Lady of the Stars, (2010 EPIC Competition SciFi Romance Finalist) and Pumpkinnapper!

Thank you all,

Congratulations on your sale! The book sounds very interesting. I love a story where the characters have a history and need some redemption.

When do you expect it to be out?

Linda Banche said...

Thanks, Heather. It does takes the hero and heroine a while to work through their differences, but that's what stories are for! Since it's a Christmas story, I expect it to be out next November or December.

That's so sweet, I love the storyline. It makes me jealous I did not think of it first. Continued success in the new year.

Hi Simone, thanks. And no need to feel jealous. We all have different ideas--that's why there are so many books. Happy New Year.
