No one does the holidays like the quirky little town of Sapphire Falls!

Now available in one bundle, the holiday fan favorites, Getting In the Spirit and Getting In the Mood, along with the bonus short, Getting Frisky, will take you from Christmas to New Year’s Eve to Valentine’s Day in the small town that does everything big– celebrations, fun… and falling in love.


It’s Christmas time in Sapphire Falls!

At least one good thing has come from Levi Spencer’s car accident– it seems to have knocked some sense into him. He’s ready to leave his wild Vegas playboy ways behind and become a new man. And he knows just the place to do it… his brother Joe’s new hometown. He’s never spent time in a place described as quaint or idyllic, and now he intends to revel in every charming, sweet thing he can find. Like the homegrown country girl his brother sets him up with for the Christmas formal.

Kate Leggot wants just one great Christmas. After a childhood without Christmas at all and three failed attempts to find the seasonal magic on her own, she agrees to spend the holiday with her friend Phoebe in Sapphire Falls. The Christmas-crazy town is a far cry from San Francisco and Kate quickly finds herself drawn into everything from the snow to the hot cocoa. And, of course, the sweet country boy Phoebe has set her up with for the formal. Looks like she’s going to get everything she wanted– and more– under the tree this year.

A not-so-little mix-up, a hot kiss under the mistletoe and a candy cane or two later and December in Sapphire Falls has never been so hot.


It’s New Year’s Eve and Kate Leggot and Levi Spencer are madly in love. But they just met 11 days ago! Is it the real thing or was it just the mistletoe magic of Christmas in Sapphire Falls?

They’re about to find out.


Kate and Levi thought Christmas in Sapphire Falls was crazy.
They haven’t seen anything yet.

After just eight weeks, Levi Spencer is feeling right at home in small-town Nebraska. He loves breakfasts with the old farmers at the diner. Loves learning how to haul wood and birth calves and snow-blow his drive. But he loves something more… or rather someone. And she lives in California. Levi wants Kate to ask him to move to the West Coast with her but if she knows how he feels about Sapphire Falls, she’ll never ask him to leave. So, he’ll have to downplay his feelings for his new hometown…somehow.

Kate’s back in Sapphire Falls to surprise Levi on the most romantic day of the year… and with her plan to stay in Sapphire Falls this time. But she soon discovers Levi hasn’t shared everything about his new life. In fact, he almost seems to be trying to scare her off with all the talk of snakes and bugs and bad coffee and worse oatmeal. He even lied about the county’s best muffins being right here in Sapphire Falls. Why would he deny her muffins?! The sex is still off the charts, but if that’s all Levi wants, Kate will have to learn to deal with it…somehow.

Warning: Read only if you like fun, small town contemporary romances where they talk dirty and act even dirtier.

This holiday-themed collection was a real, easy, fun treat on a very bad day. Even though it contains two novellas and one short story, it can easily be read as a complete tale, from Levi and Kate’s first encounter and on through the bumps of their developing relationship.

Getting In The Spirit plays with a bit of mistaken identity and instant attraction, throws in a few Christmas themed fantasies and has lots and lots of fun. Levi’s sudden change of heart regarding his life does seem a little strange, but I went along with it and really enjoyed the read. He and Kate are perfect for each other. But of course it’s not all smooth sailing, because that would be boring.

Expect cuteness, fun and a nice dose of heat to warm away any Christmas blues.

Getting Frisky is a short New Year’s Eve interlude, with Levi turning up to join Kate at a party – and neither of them getting out of the apartment. It’s a hot little reunion that doesn’t have much time for anything else.

Getting in the Mood took a little while to get going. Kate and Levi’s relationship is established now and both are ready to move onto the next level. The problem is Kate isn’t confident enough to throw her feelings out there – as Levi continuously does – while Levi is determined to give everything up for Kate. Expect plenty of bafflement, lots of silly laughs and a few hurt feelings, plus plenty of small town antics as this enjoyable collection reaches a fun conclusion.

In all this was a great piece of escapism. It might be my first visit to Sapphire Falls but, on the strength of this collection, it won’t be my last.

Getting Wrapped Up is Out Now.
