Yippeee Skippppy!

It is official, the contract has been signed so I can FINALLY tell you that the next story in my Christmas series has been contracted by The Wild Rose Press!

Oh Holly Night will be the fifth story in my Noelle, Alberta series---Christmas in Noelle...where love and laughter is always at the top of Santa's list!

Totally stoked and excited because the heroine in this story was a bit harder to write--someone who doesn't believe in Christmas or family for that matter is VERY opposite to me and everyone and everything I know, so I found it both challenging and interesting to delve deep and find out what made her tick.

Here is the unofficial blurb:

Doing a favor for her boss in hopes of reaping the veterinarian partnership she sought, Dr. Holly Night winds up in her own version of a Christmas nightmare--Santa Claus, reindeer games, babies born in a stable under the Christmas star? Unbelievable! Raised in a family that didn’t “do” Christmas—or family for that matter—having to put up with a whole jolly, crazy Christmas town tests not only her patience, but unexpectantly, her beliefs as well.

Amusement wasn’t the only thing Rev Johnston felt for the pretty doctor or her situation; he’d been in her spot before and knew how hard it could be. Strong as the connection is, though, he’s been abandoned one too many times and isn’t about to let himself fall for someone who can't wait to get out of town.

Are these two hearts too scarred for even Santa Claus Holloran to work a miracle on this Christmas?

And here's what readers/reviews have said about the previous stories:

A Cinderella Christmas

"A Cinderella Christmas was the perfect fit for a fun, romantic holiday read.
I love Stacy Dawn's Christmas in Noelle series, and reading a new story in the series is becoming one of my favorite holiday traditons."
~Kathy Adrico, Kathy's Review Corner

"The emotionally charged ending was completely unexpected. The other characters were so entertaining that at times it was laugh-out-loud funny.
I highly recommend this book."
~Brenda Talley, The Romance Studio

Christmas on Parole

"Christmas on Parole is another Stacy Dawn masterpiece. The characters are endearing and sexy, and god help me I think I'm in love with Santa."
~Johanna Melaragno, author

"There isn't anything about Christmas on Parole not to like. The premise is laugh-out-loud funny, the characters are endearing and the dialogue is perfect for the situation. Her sense of timing is super. There were more times than I can remember when I giggled while reading this. Nothing about Christmas on Parole disappointed me. It was entertaining all the way through."

Reindeer Games

"Reindeer Games is the ideal escape. Short, sweet and light hearted, it will have the reader smiling and ready to take on the shopping crowds."
~Reviewed by Magnolia

"A beautiful look at how we can overlook love in the most familiar face. Great read from a great writer!"
