Abbie Keller thought that Richard Bartholemew Benson the Third would be her forever. In their four years of dating, she never doubted that she wouldn’t end up with his grandmother’s engagement ring on her finger. Sure, she had to change a few things about herself to fit that mold, like dying her hair, dressing more conservatively, and finding golf enjoyable (honestly, the most difficult of the changes), but she was sure that at the end of it all, it would be worth it.

That is, until he leaves her crying outside her apartment wearing a Halloween costume, having broken it off with her because she’s just not serious enough. She was just fun, he tells her – and now that Richard has become a partner at his law firm in his sights, he needs to focus on work.

So she does what every girl does when she’s broken up with her: she calls her friends, gets drunk, dyes her hair, and formulates her plan for revenge. The universe supports her efforts and gives her the perfect match to prove to her ex that he made a huge mistake: his boss.

Abbie starts dating the founding partner of Richard’s law firm, Damien Martinez, with one thing in mind: convincing him to invite her to the huge annual Christmas party as his date.

But when the relationship starts to become something more than casual dating and Abbie sees that the tough New York lawyer has a soft side, will she be able to follow through with her plan of deceit?

Tis the Season for Revenge is a contemporary, grumpy sunshine, age-gap, Christmas romance.

The Matzah Ball by Jean Metzler

Oy! to the world

Rachel Rubenstein-Goldblatt is a nice Jewish girl with a shameful secret: she loves Christmas. For a decade, she’s hidden her career as a Christmas romance novelist from her family. Her talent has made her a bestseller, even as her chronic illness has always kept the kind of love she writes about out of reach.

But when her diversity-conscious publisher insists she writes a Hanukkah romance, her well of inspiration suddenly runs dry. Hanukkah’s not magical. It’s not merry. It’s not Christmas. Desperate not to lose her contract, Rachel’s determined to find her muse at the Matzah Ball, a Jewish music celebration on the last night of Hanukkah, even if it means working with her summer camp archenemy—Jacob Greenberg.


Rachel and Jacob haven’t seen each other since they were kids, but their grudge still glows brighter than a menorah. But as they spend more time together, Rachel finds herself drawn to Hanukkah—and Jacob—in a way she never expected. Maybe this holiday of lights will be the spark she needed to set her heart ablaze.

And yet, here we are.

This isn’t even the most unprofessional thing between us in the past couple of weeks.

The first was when I agreed to let her have Christmas Day off, but only if she went with me to three family gatherings as my fake girlfriend.

The second was when she caught me belting a Christmas song on stage in the awful hotel bar.

The third was the hot, drunk, angry sex that followed, but I do not regret it.

And she hasn’t even found out why I need her by my side this holiday season.

I need to pull it together before I do the dumbest, most unprofessional thing—fall head over heels in love with the only assistant who’s lasted more than a month at the job and claims to hate me and my moods more than she hates eggnog.

I haven’t been home for Christmas in eight years.

But that’s about to change. This year, I’m traveling to my small hometown to convince my producer to make me the permanent host of Good Day Denver.

The plan: Charm viewers by sharing my favorite family Christmas traditions and in turn, get the likes, clicks, and shares to land the job.

Not the plan: Running into my ex-boyfriend.

In my house.

For Christmas.

But here he is, a guest of my mother, who had more trouble letting go of Max Weber than I did.

Unfortunately, he is as handsome, charming, talented, annoying, frustrating, and flirty as ever.

Unfortunately, he seems to have the plan to convince me to give him a second chance.

Which is not happening.

There’s just one problem—my viewers love him. More than that, they love us. Me and Max. My ex.

The boy who broke my heart.

The boy I now have to fake flirt with to win over the hearts of my viewers.

But it’s not their hearts I’m worried about. . . it’s mine.

Merry Ex-Mas is a sweet, small-town, second-chance romance with a dash of not-so-fake flirting, a tiny bit of enemies to lovers, and just enough forced proximity to make things sizzle.

Truman Belvedere’s heart is crushed when he learns that his boyfriend has a secret life, including a husband and daughter. Reeling, all he wants is a place to lick his wounds far away from Louisiana.

Enter a mutual friend with a life-altering idea: swap homes for the holidays. For one perfect month, Greta and Truman will have a chance to experience a whole new world…and maybe fall in love with the partner of their dreams. But all holidays must end, and eventually, these two transplants will have to decide whether the love (and found family) they each discovered so far from home is worth fighting for.

In my perfect world, it would always be winter and never Christmas.

I despise the holiday. I hate carols, shopping, and pretending to be a perfect family.

I walked away from my family, or rather they walked away from me.

My heart is like ice—

See it creeping up the walls.

Oh, wait, no, that’s royal icing.

I should have kept The Great Christmas Bake-Off from filming in my tower.

And I never ever should have agreed to be a judge.


I love Christmas! I love sparkly window decorations, heartwarming holiday movies, and themed coffee.

Most of all, I love Christmas baking.

Even though his company sponsors the bake-off show, billionaire Jack Frost claims he hates sweets.

But after he tastes my goods, I know he’ll come begging for more.

And wouldn’t you know it, that night, Jack Frost asked me to come up to his penthouse and give him a special taste of my Christmas cookies.

Against my better judgment, I went…

I baked him my signature gingerbread cookies, and he ate them up!

It should have been a Christmas miracle, but Jack Frost couldn’t have come into my life at a worse time.

Not only am I broke, but this was my first Christmas after my oma died.

Someone is trying to sabotage me in The Great Christmas Bake-Off.

I’m being stalked by a mall Santa.

Sleeping with one of the judges is a disaster waiting to happen. I needed Jack and his washboard abs about as much as I needed that third sticky bun. 

But when he says in his deep, sexy voice, “Can you make me some more cookies?” well, stick a candy cane in me, and I’m done.

Eating Her Christmas Cookies is a standalone holiday novel. This novel has open-door scenes.
