Next stop: Pain and heartache, coming right up…
Ivy McLain’s grand scheme of making it big? Yeah, it’s going nowhere fast. Every day, her dreams of a fabulous art career are fading a little more. And just when she didn’t believe things could get any worse, her parents plan their huge 40th anniversary party.
In cold, snowy Podunk, Idaho.
It’s been five years since Ivy’s stepped foot in her hometown, and that was on purpose, thankyouverymuch. The oversized wide spot in the road holds nothing but truly awful memories for her.
All right, fine.
She’s stuck having to return, and she’s stuck playing the part of a dutiful daughter, but that doesn’t mean she has to like it.
All of that changes the moment she meets a rugged cowboy with a slow and sexy smile.
Okay, bowls him over and spills his drink everywhere. Details, details…
Up next: A girl to tear your heart apart…
Austin Bishop is hiding from the world in the small, mountain town of Sawyer, Idaho.
Okay, maybe not from the world, but definitely from the females of the world.
It isn’t that he thinks they have cooties. After all, he’d had a childhood sweetheart who he’d loved with all of his heart and soul for five years…right up until she dumped him. Receiving her engagement ring in the mail wasn’t exactly the Christmas present he’d been hoping for that year.
That’s all behind him, though. He is girl-free, and thrilled to be that way. Never better. Couldn’t be happier, actually.
All the way up until he runs, quite literally, into the most beautiful, curvy redhead he’s ever seen in his life. Suddenly, canoodling under the mistletoe seems like the best Christmas activity this side of eating homemade snickerdoodles. A fling with no strings attached? There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays.
Except, partway through the twelve days of Christmas, it stops being a fling and starts feeling like a whole lot more.
But Ivy is hiding secrets, and so is he.
When their secrets unravel, can their relationship last? Or will their Christmas romance fizzle once the eggnog runs out?
Christmas of Love is the fifth novella in the Long Valley world, although all books in the Long Valley world can be read as standalones. It is a sweeter romance with minimal sex and mild language. Enjoy!

Christmas of Love
Another in the Long Valley series, this is just as good as the others. Ivy comes back to the valley for her parents 40th anniversary after 10 years away from a place she felt tortured her growing up, and spills cider on Austin, the new county extension agent. Each have heartache in their past, but decide a little Christmas fling wouldn’t be such a bad thing. Of course it develops into more as they work through the issues of their pasts, each helping the other in this process. As with the other books in this series, the characters are well-done and believable, and the plot, even for a novella, is full and rich.

Sweetly sexy romantic journey.
Sweet, sexy, thrilling and redeeming romantic journey that will warm your heart and leave you with all the best kind of warm fuzzes. Perfect love story to get you in the holiday mood.
Ivy McLain is sweet, sassy and looking to make her dreams as an artiest come true, not looking for true love specifically in the home town she ran from for very good reasons. Austin Bishop is rugged, handsome, sweet, charming and in no way looking for the love of his life, not after the last time his heart was stomped in the dust. Sparks fly and chemistry will not be denied, loved this highly entertaining holiday romance.
Another great story by Erin Wright.This is a sweet christmas theme romance. I honestly cant get enough of this author.
