All I Want by Eden Ashe
Megan Bannon is a small-town girl, perfectly content to live her small-town life, until Jess Thorn shows up at her vintage shop, looking for a family heirloom. He's hot, sexy as hell, with an edge of danger she can't quite pin down, and the longer he's in her shop, the more she starts to fantasize about ripping his clothes off. He's made it clear it would only be one night, because the second he finds the amulet, he's gone.
Jess is running out of time. From a long line of supernatural hunters, he discovered the amulet possessing his recently deceased brother's soul had been accidentally sold in an online auction. Knowing he only had a brief window of time before his brother's spirit becomes angry, then violent, Thorn is desperate to find it before anything bad happens. Only he hadn't counted on meeting Megan.
After a lifetime of hunting the bad, shadowy things in the world, Thorn wants to soak up her goodness and never let her go. But his dead brother is angry, and when it becomes too late, the one person he suddenly can't bear to see hurt becomes the biggest target of all.
Christmas in Snowflake by Rusty Fischer
Three Heartwarming Holiday Tales by Rusty Fischer
Molly Swift had a choice to make that fateful Christmas Eve: break her boyfriend’s heart or become a famous country music star. She chose stardom and, for awhile, all was a picture book fairy tale for Molly. She cut her debut album, made the rounds on the concert tour, and then…nothing.
When Molly’s agent dumps her just before Thanksgiving a few years later, she has nowhere left to go but her hometown of Snowflake, South Carolina. There she struggles to find work. That is, until she happens in on a little year-round Christmas restaurant called Café Kringle and finds her ex-flame, Nate Night, at the piano, tickling the ivories.
Can Nate forgive Molly for running out on him? What’s more, can Molly forgive herself? And can the two team up to bring customers into the Café Kringle before its owner decides to close the doors before the holidays?
