Christmas Eva & Sleigh Ride Together With You

Good Monday Morning Readers!

Today begins our Christmas Romance Blitz! 
For the next five Mondays Lagniappe will feature two Christmas novellas. 

Today's Christmas Romances include:

Christmas Eva by Clare Revell

When an accident leaves Eva Anderson in a coma, she is woken by voice of actor Harry 'Matthew' Lyell, whom she has a long standing crush on. Left in a wheelchair, she withdraws into herself.

Harry Lyell takes a job in pantomine in Headley Cross. He often wonders about the brunette he met at the theatre door and then woke from her coma. Meeting her again must be a God thing because he certainly hadn't planned it.

As Christmas approaches, Eva and Harry's lives are drawn together in a way neither imagined. Can Harry help Eva find the Christmas miracle she needs or will a simple article destroy any future they might have?

Can Harry help Eva find the Christmas miracle she needs?
Clare lives in a small town in England with her husband, whom she married in 1992, and her three children. Writing from an early childhood and encouraged by her teachers, she graduated from rewriting fairy stories through fanfiction to using her own original characters and enjoys writing an eclectic mix of romance, crime fiction and children's stories. When she's not writing, reading, or sewing, she's keeping house or doing the many piles of laundry her children manage to make.

She has been a Christian for more than half her life. She goes to Carey Baptist where she is one of three registrars.
She can be found at:

Sleigh Ride Together with You by JoAnn Durgin

As the popular television co-host of Wake Up, Des Moines! Nicole Reardon has achieved her dream. So why has the network sent “image maker” Alex Kingsfield to the station? The irritatingly handsome man is also the first man she’s been attracted to since Jake Marston dumped her three years ago in Starlight, Iowa. When an unexpected assignment sends Nicole and Alex to Starlight, can she rise above the past and make this interview the defining moment of her career?

Alex Kingsfield knows Nicole is poised on the cusp of network stardom. But beneath the professional exterior is a small-town girl at heart, genuine and God-honoring. Alex holds the power to boost Nicole’s career to unknown heights. Or crush her dreams. From any angle, he’s caught in a “no win” situation when he finds himself falling for the beautiful Nicole. What’s a man to do when love comes calling at Christmas?

JoAnn Durgin is the author of the popular Lewis Legacy Series (five books and counting) as well as Catching Serenity. Her novellas include the Starlight Christmas Trilogy: Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, Starlight, Star Bright, and Sleigh Ride Together with You (2014). Another novella, Echoes of Edinburgh, releases in late September 2014. A member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (national, Indiana and Kentucky chapters) as well as the Louisville Christian Writers. JoAnn lives with her family in southern Indiana and has recently retired from her paralegal position to write full-time!
