MAKE YOU MINE THIS CHRISTMAS
Trope: Enemies to Lovers
Release Date: January 2
Emma Greco always dreamed of a Christmas wedding. So she can’t quite explain why taking one look inside the church and all her guests sends her running in the opposite direction.
While hiding in a nearby hotel, she meets a charming grandma who seems to know a lot about run-away brides. Before Emma realizes what’s happening, she’s agreeing to move to a small town called Winterstorm Village and take over the woman’s bed and breakfast.
Hotelier Sebastian Dallarosa has great plans for his grandmother’s condemned hotel. When a stranger waltzes into town claiming to have purchased his grandmother’s property, he knows she’s one of those con artists who target older people to scam them out of their money.
Emma doesn’t care if hot-as-hell Sebastian doesn’t believe her story. The Mayor’s Mansion Inn is all she has left. In her effort to leave it all behind and start anew, she quit her city job, returned her three-carat engagement ring, and cashed out her retirement account.
Winterstorm Village looks like the kind of place where Christmas miracles happen all the time. She’s going to need one of those to get her life back on track.
