Can the big city girl convince the small-town cowboy to give Christmas a second chance? Or will the secret she hides destroy any chance of a relationship between them? When Serafina Anderson makes a mess of her first semester of college, she does what she knows best: avoids facing her parents. This time she runs away to spend her winter vacation at the ranch of her cousin, Trish. Her escapades also lead her right into the arms of Andrew Clark, the small town's most notorious troublemaker. But Sera sees beyond Andrew's crass nature and recognizes that the bad boy isn't as bad as everyone makes him out to be. Andrew Clark hates Christmas-at least he has since his parents died. He refuses to buy into the commercialism of the holiday and does his best to shove the hurt he feels down so deep inside him that no one will ever find it. So when Sera ignores his bad temper and rude remarks, he wonders if he's finally found the angel who can rescue him from himself-until he discovers that she's been lying to him all along. Corrissa James offers this inspirational love story to remind us that opening our hearts to others can be the greatest gift of all.
Gina Reyes had embraced her inherited role as "Miss Santa," a major fund-raising event for San Antonio's needy families, but this year she must overcome Mr. Corporate America: the despicable, brilliant, warm, witty, delectable Lalo Navarro. TWO HEARTS, ONE GIFT Gina Reyes takes her job as Miss Santa seriously. There are more needy families in San Antonio than money to help them, especially around the holidays. This year she receives an incredible donation that comes with a price, her new co-chair. Her family has felt the sting of his company's Big Picture for the Greater Good philosophy, and the man represents everything she abhors. Lalo Navarro, a son of privilege, wants nothing more than to improve his beloved San Antonio. Imagine his surprise when he learns he's a demon and not a do-gooder. Pushed into accepting the Miss Santa co-chair to raise his political visibility, Lalo is soon humbled by Miss Santa herself, the shapely Gina Reyes, who somehow becomes everything he wants. On opposite sides of just about every issue imaginable, the only thing that could bring them together would be to follow their hearts...and then a Christmas miracle.

When Santa tells Jessica he'll give her whatever she wants for Christmas and that she'll finally believe in his magic, she asks for the one thing she knows he can't give. She asks for true love. But can Santa make that happen?
