My review is for The Love Clause by Liwen Ho. Philip Wong wants to make partner at his law firm and his boss Jack Wen wants him to have more of a life work balance and encourages him to bring a date to the company Christmas party. He asks legal secretary Vanessa Lim to be his fake date in return for being her fake date to her cousin's wedding. Things get out of hand when he proposes marriage at the party. Is there a future for this unlikely opposites attract pair? Plenty of humorous moments in this clean romance.

Win and Mia were torn apart by his family - he didn't know. She is finally coming home and with his daughter - he doesn't know about. Misunderstandings and not really communicating kept them apart - but now they can have a second chance. I loved how they stood up to his family and became a family. Forgiveness is hard sometimes even after a long time apart - 10 years. A really sweet romantic read. I received this free ARC and this is my honest review.

I'm always ready to read a Christmas book and especially when the temperatures are hot in the summer! I've been able to read 4 of these books so far and they are wonderful. Each different so it keeps your interest! That's why I like The Sweet Christmas Kisses boxed set each year! The books aren't too long but long enough to be a good story with great characters! The four I got to read are: GHOSTS FROM CHRISTMAS PAST by Mary Alford: This isn't any kind of ghost story, so don't worry about that! Charlotte has been in a coma for EIGHT years! I can't even imagine that! She was in a car accident in which her parents died. More amazing than that, her sweetheart, Dylan, has waited all this time for her to wake up even though just about everyone told him it would never happen. Charlotte is still in a "brain fog" so she doesn't remember a lot of things so Dylan just hopes that she will remember him again. Such a sweet holiday story filled with hope, love and a promise of the future! Loved it! CHRISTMAS PIZZA TO THE RESCUE! by Jean C. Gordon The title alone makes you want to read it and find out how pizza and Christmas are connected! the opening scene is sad but it is the basis for why Royce Evans, a champion motocross racer, becomes a loner and is in his headquarters at Christmas rather than with other people! Samantha Linder, a journalist, delivers pizza to him and hopes to get a story from him but they get stranded during a storm. A crisis of trust happens later and you'll just have to see how it all works out! Another fun story and fun characters! SECOND CHANCE CHRISTMAS by Kristin Wallace I love stories that involved a huge miscommunication in the past and it changed the whole lives of the people involved! That's what this story was about! Poor girl, Mia, and Rich guy, Win, secretly dated 10 yrs. previously but had to hide it because they lived in a small town and that just "wasn't done"!!! She becomes pregnant and tries to tell him only to discover his former girlfriend telling her that she and Win are engaged! So, Mia flees the state, never telling Win for 10 yrs. until she has to return because she's sick and broke. Well, you can guess how this one goes but it's VERY sweet and I absolutely fell in love with Win!!!! I loved the daughter, Riley, too! Another winner! THE LOVE CLAUSE by Liwen Y. Ho I really enjoyed this one because I love it when the male lead character is a total jerk at first!!! He was certainly that! All he wants to do is work, work, work at this law firm and he expects everyone else to do the same. His boss suddenly changes overnight and wants people to have an "outside the office life"! He doesn't agree but has to bring a fake date to the office party. He just randomly picks a girl at the office that helps him with his paperwork! She needs a fake date to a wedding so they agree to help each other but NO feelings or relationships - easy peasy!!!! Well, maybe not..... I enjoyed learning a little about the Chinese culture and the ending was hilarious! I laughed out loud!

This review is for three of the stories featured in this wonderful collection of sweet Christmas novellas: The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction by Milou Koenings, Ghosts from Christmas Past by Mary Alford, and Christmas in Paris by Roxanne Rustand. The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction by Milou Koenings My review: This was such a great story! I loved the way these two characters met. Although the lifestyles they were currently living were fairly different, Rose and Ryan had many things in common and a sweet romantic attraction that built throughout the story. I loved watching as Rose was able to be herself and fall for Ryan, who had some things in his past that he wasn’t proud of. I wished that this novella was about a chapter longer, as it wrapped up a bit too quickly for my tastes. I was enjoying the story so much and wanted a little bit more time with these two characters! Ghosts from Christmas Past by Mary Alford My Review: Oh my goodness! I loved this story so much! My heart just bonded with these two characters and I especially felt for Dylan and all that he had gone through while waiting eight long years for the love of his life to awaken. I loved the way Charlotte slowly began recovering her memories. Her reactions to what had happened, who she was, what she had lost, and who Dylan was to her were priceless. I couldn’t help but want everything to work out for these two characters. I especially loved the wonderful epilogue! Christmas in Paris by Roxanne Rustand My Review: What a delightful Christmas story! The author made me feel as if I was truly the one experiencing the amazing sights of Paris! I really liked the two main characters. Holly and Jack were such nice people. I loved watching them tour Paris together, discover all they had in common, and begin to fall for each other. This story left me with such a happy, cozy feeling! I received a complimentary copy of each of these three novellas. All opinions are my own.

This review is only for The Love Clause written by Liwen Y Ho. It is a sweet contemporary romance novella about a divorce attorney named Philip and a transcriptionist in his office named Vanessa. It is a well-written and cute story that will bring a smile to your face. The dialogue between the main characters is funny and captures the essence of who they are. And the author has done a great job infusing Chinese culture into the storyline and the characters’ backstories. Philip is a smart and arrogant attorney, driven by work and promotion. His lack of personal life is due to hurt in the past and he’s walled up his heart behind a cage of ice. Vanessa is a warm, loving, loyal, intelligent woman who’s put a hold on her dreams to help her mom. Their office relationship is quite rocky, but, as the two embark on a crazy “contract” together, they find themselves seeing each other truly for who they are and actually liking each other. What a great rom-com! Liwen Ho writes fun, heart-warming stories and this one surely lives up to her reputation. I received a copy of the book from the author and was under no obligation to post a review. All comments and opinions are solely my own.

Sweet Christmas Kisses 5 Sweet Peppermint Kisses by Josie Riviera Chiara Johnson is driving to her new employment-a woman who has suffered some injuries from a horse fall. The horse escaped from the fence area and ran out into the street and the boys in the car were injured and she stopped to help them out. She's late for her interview so the local cop escorts her to explain why she's sho late.. Gertrude is the woman healing from her injuries and her brother Vance is the one in charge. He is writing an app about dating-she's gotten burned once from using one in the past. He takes a liking to her and he's allowed her to dress up the place with holiday decorations. Love the idea of the book club-and there's only 2! Love hearing how they repurpose items around the house. She is also physically attracted to him and he wants her to bring her younger sister to help them celebrate the holidays. The family never celebrated...the grandparents always just maintained the horse farm and house to do anything else. Misunderstandings and jealousy and her sister is missing-she fears heading to the ice that's not frozen yet... Like hearing how they celebrate with the children, what a treasure. Love how the book got it's name and also the recipe at the end. Surprise ending. Note from the author is included about the book. Great short story, can't wait to try the treats! Recieved this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion. . Ghosts From Christmas Past by Mary Alford Was a bit leery about reading because I really don't like scary ghost stories but thought I'd give this new to me author a try. WOW what an exc story. Starts out with blackness and she has to force herself out of it. Charlotte is now awake from the coma of 8 years when she and her parents were in an accident before Christmas. She has no memory of anything, not even her name. Story also follows Dylan and she senses after seeing him that they do know one another. She's not sure how much they share or have in the past but she's willing to find out. Love patience he has with her. Others have told him, the sheriff it's time to move on and divorce her as she may never come out of the coma. Love hearing of the locale-we will be traveling to Colorado next May. Wasn't as scary a story as I had thought it would be. Love how she finds out about her past and the epilogue is priceless. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end. Would love to read more of this author. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion. . The Mistletoe Bachelor Auction by Milou Koenings Have read other works by this author and was excited for the invite to read this one. Starts out with Rose, a model and she's in hiding and among her sister and friends. She's hiding because of the media that is hounding her. Story also follows a fireman, Ryan and his friends set him up to be in the bachelor auction and Rose is to be a date for one of them. We learn how Rose's brother is in charge and he wants to remake her business-set her up a perfume and makeup type business that will give his main company money in the long run. Love that he doesn't know a thing about her and she tells him she's there to meet with a medical team to help with makeup on victims of terrible accidents or those with cancer. She is donating her time to reading to children at library during the week before Christmas. Love hearing of the events of the town, Pine Grove. Received this review copy from the auth

I read THE MISTLETOE BACHELOR AUCTION by Milou Koenings. This is a cute whirlwind of a new romance that blossoms between Rose Silver and Ryan Gordon. Rose, a supermodel, goes to Green Pines, Illinois with her sister, Dani, to see their friend, Loren Bennett just before Christmas for a literary project. Away from it all, she hides from the publicity she has always stirred up wherever she goes. Ryan Gordon, volunteer firefighter, electrician, and carpenter, has never heard of her before. They get set up for a date through a bachelor auction. Two worlds apart, the two of them end up finding out that each of them have a lot more to offer than what appears on the surface. I really enjoyed this heartwarming, holiday novella and always look forward to this set of sweet romances by multiple authors. [I received an early copy of this novella from the author and my opinion is my own.]

Second Chance Christmas 5* This review is for the Kristin Wallace novella within the boxset (it is the only book in the set I have read). Win Barrington and Mia Reynolds were torn apart by malicious lies. Both feel betrayed by the other but has their love ever died? A sweet Christmas romance and a revisit with the characters from the Heiress Games trilogy. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the author. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

After her ex-boyfriend rejected them she decided to be a single mother. Mia was ill and lost her job and apartment. Her sister Chloe told her to come home and live with her. Once Winthrop Barrington sees Riley's unique shade of aquamarine eyes he knows she is his daughter. When Mia and Win talk an discover all the lies that were told to both of them will they forgive each other and have a second chance at love? A well written story but if you haven't read the Heiress Games you will not know some of the characters. The other stories in this book are also wonderful reads. joy943
