“Secret Admirer’s Christmas Wish #3”

Allegra Malachi, Lee Lee for short, has always been smart, talented, and popular, but she is not having a good year. Following a painful and embarrassingly public encounter with her wealthy ex-boyfriend, she finds herself fired from the lucrative Fortune 500 company job she’s held for years. Now, she’s back home in her small town, living with her parents, and generally feeling like a complete failure.

Nash Edmonds is a reclusive billionaire who is considered to be a ‘ghost’ according to the press because no one has been able to find anything about his background or personal life. He’s been abroad for years, traveled the world, and dated many women, but as far as he’s concerned, there’s only one woman for him – his first love. Only, that was nearly 20-years ago and he hasn’t seen nor spoken to her since. Now, he has to figure out how to bring Lee Lee into his life without sacrificing his privacy or hers. But first, he needs to win her heart.

Sometimes, a little Christmas magic delivers love in the most inconvenient places.

Cheryl Hightower has an iron-clad mind for figures, statistics, and organization. That’s all well and good, but she also has a creative side screaming to be unleashed from a desk, computer, and horn-rimmed glasses. When she finally finds the courage to follow her heart, her orderly life seems to unravel, leading her to a new job with vipers at every turn, and leaving her in a position of uncertainty for the first time since childhood. 

The resulting encounter with the object of her secret crush – who also happens to be her new boss – prompts both of them to acknowledge the emptiness they’ve endured for far too long. The challenge is figuring out what to do about it. 

When a former ugly duckling and the former class heart-throb come together as adults, they find out they have more in common than they realized.

Glenda Shaw knows firsthand what it’s like to be an ugly duckling, and now, she is roped into helping to organize her tenth-year class reunion. The speaker this year is none other than Hunter Teegs, the object of her dreams since their sophomore year in high school. She’s a dedicated social worker with a heart the size of Texas, but her hectic schedule doesn’t allow much time for dating or entertainment.

Hunter Teegs is a self-made financial powerhouse with a boatload of charisma and a winning sense of humor. He’s also a notorious womanizer and heartbreaker. He has no interest in settling down any time soon, if ever. To make matters worse, he has recently noticed details from his childhood that cause him to question everyone and everything he’s come to believe.

When Glenda and Hunter are brought together again, fireworks nearly knock both of them off their feet, and not necessarily in a good way. Glenda knows more than one secret about Hunter, and sharing the most crucial one could mean the end of their relationship before it even gets started.
