Back cover copy!

Here’s the official back cover copy for Mistletoe and Margaritas, releasing December 5th from Carina Press!

Heating up the Holidays

Claire Rutledge still believes in love, despite losing her husband. So, after two years, she’s not surprised by the steamy dreams telling her it might be time to start moving on. But she didn’t expect her friend Justin to have the starring role.

Justin McCormick has loved Claire since the moment he first saw her, but his best friend got there first. Now that Claire is ready to move on with her life, Justin is finding it harder than ever to hide his true feelings. And when they both get caught up in the holiday spirits at a party, their simmering mutual attraction boils over into a night neither of them can forget…

Like last year, Carina Press will be releasing the four contemporary holiday novellas individually or you can buy them in one 4-novella anthology for a discounted price. Here’s the back cover copy for the collection, Holiday Kisses:

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…Love!

A man gives the gift of trust and receives a second chance at love in return. A woman helps to heal the wounded heart of a soldier. A couple finds that true love knows no distance. And a young widow learns that there can be two great loves in a lifetime. Love, romance and passion come together in this collection of four seasonal shorts.

Anthology includes:

This Time Next Year by Alison Kent

A Rare Gift by Jaci Burton

It’s Not Christmas Without You by HelenKay Dimon

Mistletoe and Margaritas by Shannon Stacey

Stories also available for purchase separately.

We hope to have covers very soon!

On a side note, I’m going to frame the collection’s cover (and I don’t even know what it looks like yet) just because being in an anthology with Jaci, HelenKay and Alison is not only a big thrill professionally, but personally. These three ladies have been a part of my life since before I was published and we’ve shared a lot of good times, not as good times, rough patches and laughs.
