A Baby For Christmas
Lisa Jackson

The uneventful Christmas Annie McFarlane expected is suddenly anything but. First, there’s the adorable baby left on the snowy doorstep of her Oregon cabin. Second, there’s the extremely attractive, yet extremely angry man claiming to be the father. Liam O’Shaughnessy may be intimidating, but this is one precious gift Annie isn’t giving up so easily . . .

What The Cowboy Wants For Christmas
Maisey Yates

When Meg O’Neill’s longtime boyfriend lets her down, again, on Christmas no less, she braves an Oregon blizzard to get to her best friend Noah’s comforting arms. But this time Noah’s not telling her what she wants to hear—he’s telling her the truth, from his heart. And his words just might be the gift Meg’s been wishing for all along.

Snowed In
Stacy Finz

Rachel Johnson has found the perfect spot for her second Tart Me Up bakery in Glory Junction, California. Except she’s in fierce competition with hunky bar owner Boden Farmer. Worse, while the icy rivals await the city’s decision, they end up catering the same Christmas Eve mountaintop wedding—and getting snowed in. But sometimes a loss of electricity generates a different kind of heat . . .

A Cowboy Wedding For Christmas
Nicole Helm

Big city art teacher Lindsay Tyler isn’t just back home in Colorado for her brother’s wedding at the Barton Christmas Tree Farm and Ranch. She’s back for good. She just hasn’t told anyone yet—including Cal Barton, the ex-boyfriend she left behind. Will it take a Christmas miracle for him to welcome her back with open arms? . . .

Q&A for GOING HOME

Q: Is there an actual Nugget, California? If not, what town or place is Nugget based on?

A: If there is a Nugget, California, I’m not aware of it. Nugget is loosely based on a number of towns in the Sierra Nevada, but particularly towns in Plumas County. My aunt lives there and we go a couple of times a year to visit. The views are stunning and we’ve spent many amazing days just inner tubing down the Feather River. Because it’s so rural where she lives, the community is close-knit, which served as good model for Nugget. I like the idea that everyone knows everyone else in town and everyone is up in everyone else’s business. I grew up in a small town; we even shared a telephone party line. My sister and I used to listen in on other peoples’ conversations (terrible, right?), but it soon became apparent we weren’t the only ones doing it.

Q: In Going Home, the heroine, Maddy Breyer, is obsessed with the Donner Party. What inspired you to put such a macabre piece of California history into a romance novel?

A: I think a lot of Californians are intrigued with the tragedy. When you think of California, you think sunny, warm, beaches and palm trees. You don’t think of pioneers getting trapped in the snow and having to eat each other to stay alive. Now ski resorts surround the area where the Donner Party got stranded in the 1800s. Every time I’m up in those parts I wonder where it happened. Is this where pioneers feasted on their fellow travelers? Maybe I’m a little warped, but I think it’s human nature to be curious about really bad things, and Maddy is a little quirky to begin with.

Q: Going Home’s hero, Rhys Shepard, is a complicated guy. Tortured, yet bound by an innate sense of duty to take care of everyone around him. Is there a story behind his character?

A: I liked playing on the theme: can you go home again? Nugget has miserable associations for Rhys. His dad was the town’s odd ball and people wrongly assume the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. But Rhys’ sense of duty brings him home and forces him to stay at least long enough to do the right thing. I’ve known people like him, people who couldn’t wait to get out of Dodge and reinvent themselves, and despite finding new surroundings and new people, still don’t feel like they belong.

Q: What’s next for the town of Nugget?

A: Rhys’ best friend (and Nugget heartthrob) Clay McCreedy is about to meet his match.

Q: Will Rhys, Maddy and other characters from Going Home make appearances in Clay’s book?

A: They are all making cameos, but I’m also introducing some intriguing new people.
