'Tis the season for romance as hearts as rekindled with love in four contemporary romances set in historic Mississippi plantation homes. 


When Colorado widow Marilyn McLemore meets her daughter's future father-in-law, a widower and cattleman from Mississippi, she is surprised how God in His plan completely reverses everything she felt she knew about her life. 

Formerly considered a nerd by her classmates, Meredith Long, a now successful historical novelist, returns to her hometown of Natchez seeking inspiration and peace with her past, not expecting to find what she is looking for withe the help of a handsome local history buff. 

A moment of tenderness between divorced couple Devon and Sandra Brinks is all it takes to convince their twins that their parents are still in love. A Christmas wedding is the perfect venue to spring a trap and give them the best Christmas present ever--a second chance at love. 

Planning perfect weddings is Wreath Anderson's job, even if she stopped believing in love and romance the day she was left at the altar. But when an old friend turns up, determined to rekindle an old spark, she begins to rethink love.
