Dreaming of Christmas: 5 complete, sweet holiday romances by Joanne Dannon

Curl up by the fire with a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate and celebrate the magic of Christmas, with these FIVE linked, heart-warming stories about love, hope and family.

A Magical Christmas in Jerusalem

Australian project manager Kiara Lonsdale is career focussed and determined to provide and care for the grandmother who raised her. Jacques Lenoir and his extended family run tours in Israel and he’s committed to their business.

But over romantic dinners in the desert, camel rides, and mud baths at the Dead Sea, sparks fly between Kiara and Jacques. Will this only be a holiday romance or will a touch of Christmas magic make it last a lifetime?

Another Magical Christmas in Jerusalem

For Lucie Lenoir, being a tour guide in Jerusalem is part of the family business. And the only thing that means more to her than family, is a child of her own.

Australian Tom Connor has come to Israel to attend a friend’s wedding. The attraction between him and Lucie is instant and sizzling. But he finds Lucie’s big Christian family overwhelming, and he’s never wanted a child of his own.

Will this only be a holiday romance or will a touch of Christmas magic allow them to find a compromise and make it last a lifetime?

Christmas Kiss, New Year’s Wish

Taylor Williamson may have a massive crush on her best friend, Luca Bianchi, but their twenty-year friendship is too important to lose over one kiss, make that two kisses, on Christmas.

Luca only sees her as a friend, and he’s about to return overseas for a two-year contract, so no more kissing. Right?

Taylor may wish for their Christmas kiss to lead to more. But how can she hold on to him when he was never hers to begin with?

Christmas Kiss in London

The flirtatious guy Amber accidentally friends on social media could be perfect, if only he weren’t younger than her, a party-guy surrounded by beautiful women, and living halfway around the world.

Stuntman Darcy Harris may be based in London, but his work on blockbuster movies can have him away from home for months at a time. That doesn’t leave time for anything other than casual hookups.

He’s younger and has a booming career ahead of him. She wants to settle down and start a family. But can friendship turn to forever love when they share a snowy Christmas kiss in London?

Christmas Kiss: But only for the holidays

CEO Leo Turner: handsome, intelligent, all-around nice guy, recently single, and needs a plan.
With Christmas just around the corner Leo needs a fake girlfriend and who better to play the part than a woman he’d never fall for, Jenna Williamson.

Supermodel Jenna is stunning, sparkling, selfish and not interested in settling down—the perfect candidate for a one-month assignment. 

Everything is planned perfectly…or so he thinks.

But when Christmas kisses get heated, Leo realises not everything in his life can be meticulously organised. Can a dash of Christmas magic make this “arrangement” permanent?
