CHRISTIE'S STANDALONE TITLES

THE THRILL OF IT ALL

When Felicity Charm gets a frantic call from her Aunt Vi begging for help, she heads back home to the clan of con artists she thought she'd left behind forever. But then her car fishtails...heading straight for Michael Magee's jeep. First, he saves her life. Then they share a night she'll never forget...

But Felicity wants to forget! Her goal is to fix up her family, then return to the glamorous life she's invented for herself. She doesn't need some risk-taker sweeping her off her feet! But he isn't about to let her go, and soon, for the first time, Felicity is experiencing the thrill of it all.

OUT ON A LIMB

Shy Stacy Banks finally gets up her nerve to ask her hunky neighbor to a party on Christmas Eve. But her Yuletide yearning goes wrong when her errand to snag Ryan Beausoleil for the night means she’s at risk of losing her life! On the night meant for Santa and his elves, she runs full-tilt into danger and gun-toting drug runners. Yes, Ryan is at her side, but is he potential romance or just pure trouble?

SNOW JOB

When PR account executive Becca Collins needs snow to come to Southern California, she contacts acquaintance Sam Stone, whose company, The Ice Man, can provide everything from ice cubes to snowflakes. It's a little awkward, sure, because Sam sort of made a move on Becca and then neglected to make a promised follow-up phone call. Ten months have passed though, and surely they can work together—on a strictly business basis.

But Sam wants so much more than a professional relationship. It's going to take some explaining and certainly a little loving to warm Becca up to his oh-so-personal plans for her and their future.

THREE LITTLE WORDS

What bad luck! Maid-of-honor Jemma Scott suddenly finds her wedding duties expand to staying the night in a house rumored to be haunted...with her ex-boyfriend, best man Trent Maxwell. Their mutual attraction sparks again even as the ghost of their former failed love affair stands firmly between them. Jemma's reluctant to put her heart on the line once more, especially when structural engineer Trent is so focused on how easily things (including relationships!) can fall apart. Will one night convince two people to share three little words?

NOTHING BUT BLUE SKIES

Innkeeper Zoe Cash loves the life she shares with her beloved younger sister, welcoming guests to their hillside abode on Abrigo Island off the Southern California coast. She has everything she needs, even a hobby as a local—if not particularly successful—matchmaker. After weathering a personal storm, it looks like only sunny days ahead…until one wounded man arrives and threatens the perfect bubble she’s constructed around herself. He’s making her want, well, more.

Astronaut Yeager Gates escapes to the island and the charming inn looking for nothing but a place to heal before getting back to his high-octane life. He’s not made for sitting still any more than he’s made for long-term romance, though intriguing Zoe Cash is tempting him to turn all his set-in-stone plans on their head.

In this unique locale, surrounded by sun, sea, and well-meaning family and friends, two people learn to face their fears and realize that falling in love might just be worth the risk.
