Curvy Girl Short and Steamy Grumpy Sunshine Protector Instalove Romance

When a blast of icy air blows into town, can the tiniest flicker of flame thaw their broken hearts?


I’ve wanted to be a television news anchor since childhood. But small towns offer limited opportunities in broadcasting. After graduation, I hightailed it out of my hometown to the big city without a glance over my shoulder.

I’ve worked my butt off at the network, patiently waiting for my big break. This year, I get it. Sort of. The station’s holiday anchor goes on bed rest, so the boss assigns me to take her place covering the holiday festivities in the most Christmassy town in the state.

Ironic I get my big break in the one place I escaped. Cranberry Corner. Home of ugly sweater parties, cookie swaps, and Burke Mackenzie.

I’m a fool for thinking he could ever love me.


Small town life isn’t glamorous, but quiet, laid-back living suits me to a tee. We take our time soaking in the sunshine, snowflakes, and sleigh rides around here. And no one does Christmas big like we do.

When a major television network decides to shine a spotlight on the town’s holiday festivities, the mayor enlists me to give the grand tour.

Showing visitors around the area is my specialty and getting Cranberry Corner in the spotlight is a sure way to increase tourism traffic.

But when I stride through the diner door to meet the network’s journalist, things get icier than the North Pole.

Everly Watson’s the last person I expect to see perched at the counter. I’ve spent a thousand nights without her, and from the look of her icy glare, there’ll be a thousand more.

It’ll take a miracle to thaw her heart.

Warning: When this protective tour guide falls in love, he’ll go the distance to win the woman who steals his heart. If you love Christmas miracles, cinnamon roll heroes, curvy women, and sticky sweet steamy romance, then you’ll love Everly and Burke.


If you’re a hopeless romantic at heart and love steamy, short, holiday love stories, Cranberry Corner is the place for you. Guaranteed HEA with no cliffhangers.
