Tis the season for Christmas stories! I’m a total holiday romance junkie, but I’ve only written one: a 2006 Christmas short story published by Samhain. If you like light and fluffy—and maybe just a little bit silly—holiday stories, this might help you get In the Spirit.

When a holiday-loving ghost tries to rock around the Christmas tree with a Grinchy guest, will they both wind up on the “naughty” list?

Even though Zach Roberts died in an incident involving a string of lights and an inflatable Santa, he’s determined to deck the halls in a big way. But being trapped in a rental cabin with the Ghost of Christmas Overkill isn’t on Jessica Newton’s bah-humbug agenda.

Together they discover it’s nice to be naughty, but can he help her find her holiday spirit?

    I completely agree with Michelle. This is a great Christmas story…..or any time of year story.

    Thanks so much, guys! I do love this story and it didn’t get a lot of love, so it’s always nice to hear from somebody who enjoyed it! (I’m told the cover might be to blame.)
