Attracting beautiful women has never been a problem for Xander Thorpe. He's tall, strong, intelligent, and successful - what's not to like? Despite the seemingly endless string of stunning women who try to attach themselves to this oh, so eligible bachelor, Xander remains haunted by the always lovely Autumn Hallman, the uber-efficient office manager for The Thorpe Group. Although Xander and Autumn's office arguments are frequent and animated, for Xander they are a cherished part of the day. Autumn hates it every time a beautiful woman walks through the doors of The Thorpe Group, because she knows that the woman is (or will be) Xander's next fling. She tries very hard not to let Xander get to her, but somehow he is able to get under her skin. She tries to initiate an office truce, but the despicable man just keeps on bringing his lady loves into the office! In her mind it is unprofessional and inappropriate. Others may be intimidated by him, but she's not afraid to confront him! What will happen if their true feelings for each other can break through the barriers that their office battles have created?

Thrust into a war she did not choose, Sarah Fanum yearns for simpler times. Times when all she had to worry about were bad crops or bad weather. Unfortunately, fate had other plans. Set in 1776, my short story A Christmas Crossing describes the night that changed the course of the Revolutionary War. It is not your typical Christmas story, but one that has affected every fabric of our lives as Americans. I was inspired to write A Christmas Crossing after visiting Yorktown, VA. I have always been enamored by the Revolutionary War and wanted to share my love for history with my love for Christmas. I hope you enjoy it.
