Christmas Comes to Dickens
Individual Author Feature/Box Set
Individual Book Title: Holly’s Wish
Author: Kathleen Lawless
Blurb for Holly’s Wish
Do wishes come true?
All her life, Holly has believed in the power of wishing. Except for the “big one”. The phone call that never came after a memorable encounter one Christmas Eve.
She can’t forget Nico and their synchronicity that night. Dare she risk a second heartbreak when her latest wish brings Nico back into her life?
Excerpt: Holly’s Wish
When Holly answered the door, her eyes widened as the porch light illuminated the features of the man standing there. She gripped the side of the door for support.
“You must be Holly,” the man said with a familiar, engaging smile. “I’m Nic.”
Holly couldn’t believe her eyes! The man affectionately dubbed by Sherry as “Nic the dick,” was in actual fact, Nico.
Whoever originally said, “careful what you wish for,” hadn’t been kidding.
Holly’s heart raced as she stepped back, opening the door wide. “Please come in. Sherry said you have a donation.”
Despite the fact that he’d brushed by her quickly in Trim A Tree, she now knew why she had felt that unmistakeable flash of recognition.
Would he recognize her? She raised a hand to her shoulder length rainbow-hued hair. Born a blonde, she was always playing with the color, which had been jet black and long when she and Nico had first met. Her hair had been straight then as well, unlike it’s current tangle of curls. What else was different? Her makeup was far more subtle, and she’d finally grown into her features which used to feel too big for her face. Or so said her critical photographer’s eye.
“Cute tree,” Nico said. Against his height and broad shoulders, it looked almost like a toy. “Sherry’s is a monster. I needed a ladder to put the star on top. Speaking of stars…” He reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out the angel. “I have a donation for your charity.” He paused midway of handing it to her, and seemed to really look at her for the first time. “Have we met before?”
Kathleen Lawless blames a misspent youth watching Rawhide, Maverick and Bonanza for her fascination with cowboys, which doesn’t stop her from creating a wide variety of interests and occupations for her alpha male heroes.
Her hero, Steele, in UNDERCOVER, is a modern-day cowboy, so when she was wooed by a man called Steel— while he’s not a cowboy, he is an Alpha male and her forever hero. Which is why all of her stories end Happily Ever After.
Not that she can ever stick to just one genre. So many stories to tell—never enough time.
With over 30 published novels to her credit, she enjoys pushing the boundaries of traditional romance into historical romance, romantic suspense, women’s fiction and stories for young adults.
