IS IT CHRISTMAS YET? IT IS AT PRP! by Cheryl Pierson


IS IT CHRISTMAS YET? It is here at Prairie Rose Publications! Just look at what we’ve got in store for you for our first annual CHRISTMAS IN JULY sale!
Now, these aren’t all Christmas stories, but a good many of them are, and that's what I'm starting with today--but there'll be more to follow each day! And they’re ALL Christmas-sale priced—so it’s time to stock up on some wonderful holiday reading!

CHARLIE’S PIE—Livia Reasoner Charlie’s Pie was included in PRP’s first anthology ever, WISHING FOR A COWBOY! And guess what? It won the 2013 Western Fictioneers’ Peacemaker Award for Short Fiction! This is a story you won’t want to miss.

A wounded man, a desperate woman, a gang of ruthless outlaws...and the best pecan pie in Parker County!


OUTLAW’S KISS—Cheryl Pierson Outlaw’s Kiss was one of the stories in WISHING FOR A COWBOY, as well. This is one of my favorite stories I’ve ever written, because it has such an unexpected happy ending for everyone—the outlaw, and the lady—and even the villain!

A long-ago schooldays crush is rekindled by an Outlaw*s Kiss that sparks true love, and a new future for Jake Morgan and Talia Delano.


PEACHES—Kathleen Rice Adams Peaches is the story of a hard-bitten rancher who is determined not to let a pretty young mother of three turn his head, but it proves impossible. How will a simple fruit affect their relationship? Read and find out!

When a strong-willed schoolteacher invades an irascible rancher’s Texas range, not even the spirit of Christmas may be able to prevent all-out war.


A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE—Phyliss Miranda Do you believe in Christmas miracles? You will when you read Phyliss’s wonderful tale of how a new doctor and a young woman forge a special bond over a sick child that brings an entire town to an understanding of the true meaning of Christmas.

Acceptance comes not through frosty eyes, but from the warmth of loving hearts.


HER CHRISTMAS WISH—Tracy Garrett Looking for a swoon-worthy hero? Well, here he is! Tracy Garrett has a way of making us fall in love with her heroes and admire her heroines, and this story is no exception! Take a look.

Her only wish for Christmas was the man who left her behind.


A HUSBAND FOR CHRISTMAS—Sarah J. McNeal If you have not read any of Sarah J. McNeal’s stories in her Wilding series, you are missing out! This is a short story about Jane Pierpont who lost her husband on the Titanic. She finds herself falling in love with someone she never dreamed possible—but it just might work out!

A haunting night of horror and a wish for a new life.


COVENANT—Tanya Hanson She was a mail-order bride, sent for as a mother to his child. What happens when the child is taken from them far too soon? Can they still find the love they were meant to share? The vows they shared were a covenant of sorts, and the springerle cookie roller is a keepsake that means everything—to both of them.

Can a Christmas blizzard ignite love gone cold?

  6. I loved each and every one of these stories, and Livia you've outdone yourself on the covers again!! **Sings at the top of lungs**
    Haul out the holly;
    Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
    Fill up the stocking,
    I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.
    For we need a little Christmas
    Right this very minute,
    Candles in the window,
    Carols at the spinet.
    Yes, we need a little Christmas
    Right this very minute.
