Writing Holiday Romance

Holiday-themed romances are some of my favorite books to read and write. My latest contemporary, Harmony’s Embrace, follows Harmony Holdich as she returns home to Willow Springs, Vermont to visit her uncle for Christmas before starting her life over across the country. There she reconnects with her high school sweetheart, Birley Haynes, and her plans go up in smoke.

Quiet literally.

Someone is targeting Birley and his family business, and Harmony gets caught in the crossfire.

Even though most holiday romances tend to be more sweet and clean—and there’s nothing wrong with that—my books lean more toward danger and sexual tension hot enough to melt snow. I always put my heroine and hero through the ringer, both in and out of the bedroom, and Harmony and Birley are no exception. After all, the bad guys aren’t going to wait at home, twiddling their thumbs, just because it’s the season to be merry. Heck no! Where’s the fun in that?

But I am following some of the normal holiday conventions with Harmony’s Embrace—family, kids, and matchmaking. Birley is an exhausted single dad with a ton of responsibilities, and his mother and brother are determined to set him up with the woman who got away.

No matter what happens during the course of the story, one thing should always remain the same—the romance. Harmony and Birley may find their happily ever after outside the typical holiday structure, but as long as the reader is smiling, then it’s a good book.

Divorced dad Birley Haynes is too busy raising his children and running his family’s music academy to start a relationship. Then Harmony Holdich, his high school sweetheart, returns home to Willow Springs, Vermont for Christmas and falls into his bed. She brings light and fun back into his life, but he can’t brush aside the threatening incidents around his workplace.
Harmony hadn’t expected a complication like Birley, especially so soon after the death of her unfaithful husband. With her life a mess, she plans to move across the country and start over. All she can offer him is a fling, but her heart yearns for more.
When the threats rise, how will Birley keep his children safe and convince Harmony to give love another chance?
