Chance brought them together...
when a beautiful intruder interrupts Grayson Corbitt's shower, the recently jilted rancher feels as if his beaten into the pavement heart has been revived and that love at first sight might truly exist after all.
Another holiday season alone leaves forlorn Molley Green blue and sulking her sorrows in the town square until her best friend presents her with a special Christmas gift. Molley accepts. Why not wallow her self-pity away in The Hamptons?
Though, catching her friend's boss dripping wet in the buff was not what she had in mind. The tall and ruggedly handsome man was everything she'd ever wished for or was he?
Will this holiday bring both their hearts' desire? Molley can only hope that wishes do come true.
Nixie Daniels loves her cozy little cul-de-sac. Until the house next door sells. Her new neighbor is inconsiderate and cranky. He calls her beloved Italian greyhound, Totino, a mutt. He blocks her driveway with his moving truck, making her miss getting her favorite morning treat at the new bakery in town. The final straw is when he has her water turned off by mistake.
This man has to be straightened out.
Rye Larsen is finally doing something for himself, rather than what his family expects. He's bought a house--not a McMansion--on a cozy cul-de-sac in the suburbs. He's realized his dream of owning his own bakery. He's got a beautiful, albeit high-maintenance, fiancee. He's living his best life.
Or is he?
Can love and gingerbread overcome a neighborly feud?

Widow Mallow rescues Pascal, an Elf from the Northpole who was injured in a rockslide. Since the Elves and the Dwarves in the vale do not mingle, she hides him from her neighbors, but passion flares between them. They have no future, she knows he will return to the North Pole. That, and the knowledge that he will always be lame, nearly break her heart, but she will enjoy their time together, and she has her children to live for... Pascal has never used his One Wish granted by Santa. Mallow rejoices when she learns of it--he can have his foot truly healed! But Pascal has another desire in his heart.

It's me against them, I'm just not sure who will break first.

Rob Joleigh has been burned by Christmas too many times. He takes his freelance writing career seriously and his claim to fame happens to be de-bunking Christmas festivities in towns across America. When he lands in South Pole, Alaska, he has one plan in mind... to get to the bottom of the whole 'Backwards Christmas' idea and spoil the holiday for as many people as possible.
Holly Howard knows there's more to life than leading Backwards Christmas tours in South Pole, but she's happy with her job, town, and friends. The only thing missing is someone to share it all with, but in a small town, it's hard to meet new people. When a handsome writer comes into town, she's intrigued, and hopeful that he could be that person. But she has no idea he's the famous "Jolly Robber."
It's not just any Backwards Christmas in South Pole, Alaska as the backwards celebrations rage and the town comes together to show their spirit in full force!
