Celebrate! I love writing Christmas stories because they include three of my favorite things-tradition, lots of emotion, and a guaranteed happy ending. That's why I'm delighted that Berkley is offering this holiday collection, which includes four of my classic historical novellas, plus something special-my very first contemporary novella. In A Holiday Fling, a British actress and a Hollywood cameraman team up to film a Christmas show for a good cause. Anything that happens between them will be a strictly temporary holiday fling-or might it be more? In the classic historical stories,The Christmas Cuckoo features a level-headed young woman who goes to the local coaching inn and comes home with the wrong Jack Howard. Sunshine for Christmas has a depressed young aristocrat heading to Italy for the holidays, and finding a most unexpected bonus. The Christmas Tart is the tale of a young Frenchwoman down on her luck, whose bleak choice for survival takes her to a new chance for happiness, while The Black Beast of Belleterre turns Beauty and the Beast into what is probably my very favorite holiday love story. What all these tales have in common is two people discovering life's greatest gift, love, at the happiest time of the year. Enjoy! Mary Jo Putney.
