Their Yuletide Promise
by Stacy Connelly
Miniseries: Hillcrest House

Synopsis
Evie’s life is all work.

Until she invites Griffin to play!

Workaholic Evie McClaren will do anything to prevent the sale of her family’s hotel. Even fake a holiday romance! Wealthy charmer—and prospective buyer—Griffin James seems delighted to play along…providing steamy, realistic PDAs under the mistletoe. Wait. Was that last kiss real? All Evie wants for Christmas is the Hillcrest House Hotel. And all Griffin wants…is Evie by his side—for real.

Stacy's past holiday novel, Once Upon a Wedding has been turned into a movie called The Christmas Wedding Planner. It's available on DVD and Netflix
Here's a trailer




 Stacy's post:


First, I would like to thank Debbie at The Reading Frenzy for inviting me and the rest of the Special Edition authors to participate in this holiday event! Christmas has always been a special time for me—both personally and as a writer. My very first Special Edition is a holiday book titled All She Wants for Christmas. My second Special Edition, Once Upon a Wedding, was actually made into a movie! And, although the book was set in June, the production company added a Christmas theme for the movie Christmas Wedding Planner. And…my latest Special Edition, Their Yuletide Promise, was originally written with a Valentine’s Day theme, but once the book was scheduled for October, my editor at Harlequin asked me to revise the storyline with a holiday setting.

Some of my friends were kind enough to buy me Christmas presents that tied into these books. My best friend gave me a silver heart ornament inscribed with the title of All She Wants for Christmas. Two other friends created a picture frame ornament with the cover of the movie poster from Christmas Wedding Planner the year the DVD came out. Who knows what I might receive this year for Their Yuletide Promise (hint, hint…)?

Along with loving to write Christmas books, I also enjoy reading them. Some of my past favorites from Special Edition are Christine Rimmer’s Carter Bravo’s Christmas Bride, Allison Leigh’s A Child Under His Tree, Brenda Harlen’s The Maverick’s Midnight Proposal, Michelle Major’s Sleigh Bells in Crimson, and Caro Carson’s The Majors’ Holiday Hideaway. And I could go on!

Even though it doesn’t get all that cold here in Arizona, there’s still nothing better than curling up in front of the fireplace (even if it is an electric one!) with a good book and reading by the glow of a Christmas tree! What are some of your favorite holiday reads?

About Stacy:Stacy Connelly dreamed of publishing books since she was a kid writing about a girl and her horse. Eventually, boys made it onto the page as she discovered a love of romance and the promise of happily-ever-after.
In 2008, that dream came true when she sold All She Wants for Christmas to Silhouette Special Edition.
When she is not lost in the land of make-believe, Stacy lives in Arizona with her two spoiled dogs.

Thanks Stacy

stop by tomorrow for Nancy Robards Thompson's post

  4. That is so cool that her friends get her gifts to remember each of her books and the movie adaption. Oho, Evie looks like she's getting something better than her family hotel in that new story.

    Hmm, my favorite holiday reads... Forbidden Magic by Jo Beverley, Bring Me Home for Christmas by Robyn Carr, Coming Home for Christmas by Carla Kelly, and Starting From Scratch by Stacey Gail.

    Fun post!
