It’s time to shine the baubles, pull out the mistletoe, and prepare to swoon in the fun, heat, and mischief of Jackson Kane’s smoldering holiday read, My Holiday Secret.

He’s my holiday secret… and if anyone finds out, I’m screwed.

I did everything I could to get away from my family, but somehow, I’ve let my sister drag me home for the holidays. Now that I’m back, everyone expects to finally meet my fiancé.

The only problem is I don’t have one. He dumped me, and they have no clue.

I can’t let them find out I’m single. Luckily, after a one-night stand with a bad boy bouncer—the chiseled and grizzled Vance Mathis—I’ve got a plan: Hire him to be my fiancé for the family Christmas party.

When he pulls that mistletoe out of his pocket, I know he’s only looking to jingle my bells. Even so, it’s getting harder and harder to keep my hands off him.

I only wanted him to play pretend, but after our not-so-silent night together, I’m starting to want something real.

My Holiday Secret has been polished just in time for the holidays. With a new edit, a Christmas shine, and now traditionally published, kick back and prepare to swoon.

Christmas is in the air.
Pulling Garrett Johansson over isn’t the most auspicious beginnging to a relationship for Officer Lisa Weight, but at least she didn’t have to give him a ticket. Not that she’s looking for a guyeven if her mom says she should be. 

Garrett is glad to visit his sister, Sheila, during the Christmas season, but he hadn’t counted on a major snow storm as soon as he landed in Kansas City. When his sister introduces the cop who pulled him over as a friend of hers, he puts their less-than-stellar beginnings in the past and gives her a chance. The more he gets to know her, the better he likes her. If only he didn’t live 1600 miles away in California. 

With everything trying to keep them apart, can they still have a Merry Christmas?”



Q&A With the Author:

1. What inspired this Christmas/Winter book? I wanted to write a little story about how Sheila’s brother met and married the police officer in Crystal Creek for a while now so when I started thinking about writing a Christmas novella, choosing them was a no-brainer. I loved being able to share more of the community spirit that I remember growing up in a small town.
2. Do you have other Holiday books? If so, what are they are for which Holidays? If not, what other books do you write?– I have several other books set in or around Christmas time, most notably One Winter Night and Reclaiming His Bride (though that one is less Christmas specific.) I also have other titles that feature a holiday event at some point in the story.

3. What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it? Getting my master’s degree. I actually applied a few weeks ago for grad school and now I’m stuck waiting to see if they’ll accept me. 

4. Tell us about things you enjoy what you do for fun or personal satisfaction besides writing? I like learning new things and trying out recipes. Lately I learned how to make pasta from scratch (which is why Lisa does it in Love at Christmas). 

5. Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real life? Lots of them are. The lights in the park with Santa is a twist on an event in the town where I grew up. Lots of other little bits and pieces of my life show up in my books.

6. Tell us one Christmas or Winter tradition that you love to do every year, and why it is so special to you. I love baking holiday treats and giving them away to friends and neighbors. When I was growing up my mom baked for days and we would run them to tons of people. It made me feel connected to my neighbors when we exchanged treats. For me, Christmas is all about reaching out and serving others.

He jilted her sister. She will never forgive him for it. Can her anger survive a snowing in and a Christmas truce?
Emma Caldwell doesnt hate anyoneexcept for Hugh Warrilow, the man who jilted her older sister and left like a coward to join the army. Men are clearly not to be trusted, and Emma is determined not to give her heart to one. No, a marriage of convenience is the very thing to suit her.
Hugh Warrilow has been secretly in love with Emma Caldwell for years, so when the time comes to live up to both familiesexpectations and marry her sister, he cant find it in himself to do it. Disgraced and misunderstood, he joins to fight Napoleon on the Continent, hoping he will forget Emma and be forgotten by everyone he has disappointed.
An injury brings Hugh homejust in time for Christmas and the snowstorm that leaves him trapped under the same roof as Emma. How will he explain that his unforgivable act was motivated by how desperately he loved her? Her icy reception doesnt leave him the chance, nor does it offer much hope for the seasons expectation of peace on earth and goodwill to men. “.


Q&A With the Author:

What inspired this Christmas/Winter book?
I and the other authors in the series decided to set our stories in December 1813, which happened to be an incredibly cold and severe winter. I had also been brainstorming concepts, words, and feelings we associate with Christmas. The concept of “peace on earth, good will toward man” sat in my brain for a bit, and I toyed with it a bit before the title was born. Definitely the only time I’ve had a title before a story!

Do you have other Holiday books? If so, what are they are for which Holidays? If not, what other books do you write?
I don’t have any other holiday books yet, but I have a few other books in the Regency genre: 
Wyndcross
Isabel
Cecilia
Hazelhurst (preorder)
Eleanor

What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?
I would love to live and write abroad with my family! We are doing a little test run soon, so that’s the first step. But I also have major FOMO (fear of missing out) with my family, so we will see if I can hack it.

Tell us about things you enjoy what you do for fun or personal satisfaction besides writing?
I love photographyusing light to capture meaningful moments that might otherwise be forgotten is very fulfilling for me. I enjoy cooking, though I am a one-dish-at-a-time kinda person (I am no juggler!). I love music and really enjoy singing. I get anxious when there is no chocolate in my home.

Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real life?
All of my stories are based off of aspects of my lifedrawn from experience with emotions I’ve felt or that I’ve watched those near to me navigate. I often look through my (copious amounts of) photos from the UK as I’m picturing a setting or scene. A couple of my novels have been directly inspired by places I’ve visited in England.

Tell us one Christmas or Winter tradition that you love to do every year, and why it is so special to you.
My family goes out caroling on Christmas Eve, bags of caramels in hand, to some of the elderly or home-bound in our neighborhood. It’s so fun to be together as a family engaged in something we all love (music) and bringing some needed cheer to those who might otherwise spend the evening alone. One of the songs we sing is an arrangement my grandpa created, which makes it extra meaningful for all of us.

Annie Flanagan happily moves to Jubilee Springs to work as a maid for Delly Nighy, the daughter of her former New York City employer. For one thing, very few know that her next younger sister, Kate, has signed up with the Colorado Bridal Agency and started writing to an Irish miner, Michael O’Hare, in the same town. Both Annie and her mother back in New York grow concerned when the second man the bridal agency puts Kate in contact with is a miner in Central City. He’s not Irish—and he’s not Catholic. What is worse, she seems to prefer him over Michael.

Kate Flanagan, working as a scullery maid to help support her family, desperately desires to escape the dead-end poverty allotted to Irish women living in the lower east side of Manhattan in New York. Anxious to find a husband out west, she signs up with the bridal agency suggested by her sister. After living with her alcoholic father, she is leery of choosing Irishman Michael O’Hare for a husband. As much as she wants to live near her sister, dare she take the chance Michael O’Hare will not turn out like her da?

Annie and Michael grow closer as they work together in order to persuade Kate to come to Jubilee Springs. She needs to come soon—before winter sets in and disrupts the railroad service that will bring her to the high mountain mining community. Kate agrees to travel to Jubilee Springs before Christmas, but several factors, including the train, threaten to derail this romance.

Michael knows what he promised. He knows what he wants. In the end, will he marry the bride who has captured his heart?




Q&A With the Author:

What inspired this Christmas/Winter book?

I wrote for a multi-author series two years ago, Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs, including a novel titled Dead Set Delphinia. A secondary character in it from New York named Annie wished to get the address for the mail order business she learned Delphinia used to give to her sister, Kate. Two years later, I felt I still needed to write Annie’s and Kate’s story regarding how each came to Jubilee Springs

Do you have other Holiday books? If so, what are they are for which Holidays? If not, what other books do you write?

I have one other Christmas holiday book, Too Old for Christmas, set in the 1856 California gold rush town of Columbia. My other holiday books, a trio of related novellas, once again from the Sweethearts of Jubilee Springs series, Aaron’s Annulment Bride, Cat’s Meow, and Bargain Bessie, revolve around Independence Day in 1881.

What is your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?

I would like to have one of my books end up on the U.S.A. Today’s Bestseller’s List. I’m working on it—I’m writing.

Tell us about things you enjoy — what you do for fun or personal satisfaction besides writing?

Besides writing, I enjoy reading, quilting, and photo-editing. I make a lot of my own promotional banners/memes.

Are your characters/stories/scenes, etc. based on anything in real life?

Some are; some aren’t. I do a lot of research to make my stories as realistic to the time period as possible. Although Jubilee Springs in my current novel is a fictional town, it is loosely based on the topography and history of a real town in the Arkansas River silver mining region in the Rocky Mountains. Some, like my recently-published Escape from Gold Mountain, is almost more fictionalized history rather than historical fiction. Even though some of my characters and story elements are fictional, I used real people and incidents of that time as the foundation of the story.

Tell us one Christmas or Winter tradition that you love to do every year, and why it is so special to you. 

My husband and I were married six days before Christmas. Almost every year, we go to the same foothills restaurant to celebrate.
