Holiday Romance Anthology

With November’s theme being Holiday Romances, I wanted to revisit Five Golden Rings: A Christmas Collection.
Earlier this month, I wrote about how Tempting Mr. Weatherstone and an amazing editor from Avon/HarperCollins changed my life. This time, I wanted to give an overview of the wonderful stories that make this holiday anthology a keeper. :)

Mistletoe Magic – by Sophie Barnes

What better way for Connor Talbot, Earl of Redfirn, to spend the holidays than convincing Leonora Compton that the only match she needs to make is with him!

His Perfect Gift – by Karen Erickson

The Duke of Ashton has had three years to plan for his perfect Christmas present—the Lady Eleanor Fitzsimmons as his wife. Now, all he has to do is convince the reluctant lady . . .

War of the Magi – by Rena Gregory

Phin Baldwin does not believe in Christmas magic . . . until the clever and beautiful Ginny Overton gets it into her head to show him how wonderful it can be when wishes come true.

Her Christmas Knight – Sandra Jones

Just returned from the Crusades, marriage is the last thing on Sir Caerwyn’s mind. But will he be able to resist Lady Nia, the thief of his boyhood heart, when she tempts him yet again?

Tempting Mr. Weatherstone – Vivienne Lorret

Responsible Ethan Weatherstone is determined to save Penelope Rutledge—and her reputation—from her silly scheme, but can he save himself from the temptation of her lips?


My fellow authors put their hearts and talent into crafting these stories. These gifted women have many incredible books to share with you. Please check out what's new with Sophie, Karen, Rena, and Sandra. And have a blessed November!


Many thanks to Christy Carlyle for asking me to step in for her while she’s away. Also, my gratitude goes to Judith and Sarah for being gracious hostesses. Thank you!

Also, if you’re in the holiday mood, check out Tempting Mr. Weatherstone in Five Golden Rings: A Christmas Collection from Avon (available now). The story continues in 2014 in The Wallflower Wedding Series. For more information, please visit www.vivlorret.net.

Great job of succinctly describing the stories! Did you write the blurbs for other authors? If so, you have a talent for it -

Sarah and I have loved having you with us at RTG. You've been a wonderful asset in Christy's absence.
