The Wild Rose Press has done something sweet for Christmas this year with the Twelve Brides of Christmas series – they’ve taken the twelve individual stories and divided them into four volumes with three stories in each.
The Twelve Brides of Christmas series is loosely based on the English Christmas carol the Twelve Days of Christmas. Each author was given a day from the song and wrote a story pertaining to that day.
For volume one:
Jan Romes – Big on Christmas (Partridge in a pear tree)
Barbara Edwards – Late for the Wedding (Two turtle doves)
Fleeta Cunningham – Till the World is Safe For Dreams (Three French hens)
Blurb for Big on Christmas:
Cassie New left L.A. with a secret and finds herself in Woodstock, VT – a town rich with Christmas tradition. She tries to forget the world she knew but the small-town charm makes her even more aware of the life she never had.
Luke Stennett doesn’t have time for relationships. Things are starting to go right but he has a secret of his own that could possibly turn everything upside down.
Once their secrets are revealed, will it kill the chemistry and send Cassie back to L.A. or will she fight for her happiness and stay firmly planted in a place big on Christmas?
Blurb for Late for the Wedding:
Despite an impending nor’easter, Heather Green sets out for her twin sister’s wedding with the dress, cake, and favors. As the snow piles up, she wrecks her car in an accident.
Driving a tow truck, Nicholas Burnes has the task of helping Heather. When the storm closes the roads he ends up offering her shelter. Warm and rested, Nick and Heather explore their attraction for each other, only to part when he delivers her to her sister’s wedding. But weddings breed weddings…
Blurb for Till the World is Safe for Dreams:
Dreams were put on hold when the bombs hit Pearl Harbor, including Kay and Jeremy’s wedding plans. Now he’s half a world away, and Kay is spending her days in a war plant, forging bonds with other women who worry and wait. Then she receives news that Jeremy has life threatening injuries. Will he come back? If he does, will he be the same? Will the world ever be safe for dreams?
