Surprise Anthology! Merry Ever After features Vi, Pen, Tijan, Marie, Lucy and Kennedy #holidayromance #Christmasromance #romanceauthors #romancereaders #freebook


It’s the season for gift giving!

Five FREE standalone holiday short stories!

Hot Item by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

Getting into a fight with a sexy stranger over the last hot toy on the shelf was not the way I intended to spend Christmas Eve.  And I certainly didn’t plan on spending hours more trying to win a contest to decide who would get to buy it.  But when our time is up,would the toy be the only hot item I wanted to take home? 

One Night Only by Lucy Score

After a Christmas Eve concert mishap, divorced Brooke finds herself snowed in with the silver fox retiring rocker she’s been trying to interview. Will it take a Christmas miracle to get him to open up to her or does the tattooed bad boy of punk rock have other ideas on how to pass the time?

A Kellan Holiday by Tijan

Humans are so simple with their holiday traditions.

They are ignorant of the powerful and majestic creatures among them, like me.

I am the most powerful demon above the surface.

Nothing can stop me...except, well, some stupid prophecy.

Holiday Swing by Kennedy Ryan

For our five-year wedding anniversary, my husband decides he wants another woman. 

The traditional gift is wood, but okay. 

After trying everything with little improvement, our marriage counselor suggests we experiment to reignite our sex life. A swing party is my husband’s adventure of choice. 

Once inside, I can’t go through with it. Seeing him walk off with someone else, I realize we want very different things. Our marriage is over, and I have no intention of having a random hook up with a stranger. 

But then away from the noise and revelry, I find him. 

It’s one illicit encounter. A night with no names and no inhibitions. 

I don’t hold back, knowing I’ll never see him again.

And I don’t…until my parents’ Christmas party…

Nochebuena by Marie Force

Nochebuena is the Cuban community’s Christmas Eve celebration, and in this short story, the cast of Marie Force’s Miami Nights Series comes together to mark the holiday after a year of change that's touched nearly every member of the family. Catch up with the characters from How Much I Feel, How Much I Care and How Much I Love and get a sneak peek at the couple that will headline book 4, How Much I Want. If you haven’t read the books yet, you’ll still enjoy this short story set in the Miami Nights world!

These stories are intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations.

The Bassist:

What is an L.A. rockstar doing in Big Bear on Christmas Eve?

A sudden, strong blizzard has submerged the mountain in snow, keeping my family home. Resigned to spending my first Christmas as a widow alone, I’m startled by someone pounding on my cabin door—a handsome man carrying a guitar and needing shelter.

Dylan is sweet, funny, and the complete opposite of my former husband. As we get to know each other, he’s so damn hot I can’t resist learning what he has to offer.

Is this a single night of passion, or the beginning of lasting love? 

The Pianist:

Where do you meet a great girl when you’re famous? Realizing I haven't cultivated a life outside the group in years is a lonely epiphany. With most of the band coupled up now, I’m the seventh wheel, and it sucks. The groupie scene is our drummer’s thing, not mine.

When a beautiful woman mistakes me for my identical twin brother, the awkward encounter turns into a possibility for something real.

Something lasting.

Something like love—and it scares the hell out of me.

Being the guy that falls too easily has burned me in the past, so with Hannah I’m determined to take things slow and not screw it up.

If only my evil twin wasn’t hell-bent on tearing down everything I try to build. 

The Roommate:

Rosalind and I have had a BFF Chip since 7th grade—the ultimate best friend favor. At age 25, Ros calls in her chip.

Her little brother lands in an hour.

And he needs a place to crash.

For more than one night.

No problem, right?

I pick Patrick up at LAX, expecting the same slight and nerdy boy I last saw in high school. He's still a nerd—new IT job—but all grown up and more gorgeous than any best friend's little brother has a right to be.

When he walks around my apartment in only a towel, it’s difficult to keep seeing him as only a friend.

Ros completely bails on us, so I propose pooling our money into a two-bedroom and officially becoming roommates. He’s polite, sweet, clean, and cooks.

What could go wrong?

I could fall in love with him. 

A Rockstar Christmas Wedding:

Organizing a Christmas Day wedding in two weeks is insane.

Dylan proposed the week of Thanksgiving and suggested a Christmas wedding. We met on Christmas Eve, but he means this year. It’s a private argument I’m winning—until he tells his rockstar friends and their wives who are my best gals. Now everyone’s excited!

Complicating things? I took a pregnancy test the day before that proposal, Dylan lives in L.A., and I live in Big Bear. That baby’s coming in six-ish months, so we need a house, which I have on the mountain—we met in a snowstorm—but he doesn’t want the two-hour commute.

It’s the first big test of our relationship and it scares me.

Which will win—my practical side or the magic of the season?

This story is intended for readers 18 and over due to adult language, sexual content, and adult situations. Picks up where The Pianist ended and is a sequel to The Bassist

COVER REVEAL - The Summer Proposal by Vi Keeland @ViKeeland @GiveMeBooksPR #coverreveal #contemporaryromance #romancereaders


Title: The Summer Proposal
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Cover Design: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative
Photographer: Rodolfo Martinez
Model: Michael Yerger
Release Date: January 10, 2022

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date. 

Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on. 

Exactly what I needed after my breakup. 

Or so I thought… 

Until my real date arrived.  

Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up. 

To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. 

Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date. 

I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet. 

But my real blind date and I had no connection.

So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game. 

When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.

Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.

Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy. 

A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled. 

You guessed it: Dimples

Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play

And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood. 

He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.   

Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right?

Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.
