The holiday season is upon us! Preparations abound all around me. The lions at the Art Institute of Chicago have officially been wreathed, a tradition that dates back 30 years. The ‘Christmas Around the World’ display is back at the Museum of Science and Industry, a 70-year tradition! And ‘The Nutcracker’ ballet has returned to The Civic Opera House.

Millions of lights adorn the streets with pine boughs and poinsettias. Shoppers are more heavily laden with packages along the Magnificent Mile. We haven’t had any snow yet, but that could quickly change.

It’s a magical time in the city. And a perfect time to hunker down with a warm blanket, a hot cup of cocoa or tea, and a romantic read! And what better to read than a Christmas anthology?

Here’s the best news…CHRISTMAS AT COURT (my novella in the TUDOR CHRISTMAS TIDINGS anthology) will be part of the North American Harlequin Series Holiday Sale. The promotion will run from December 12th – 19th 2021. You can get TUDOR CHRISTMAS TIDINGS for only $1.99 (regular price $4.99). That’s three novellas in one book! So grab your copy now before it’s too late. Purchase links below.
