New York Times bestselling authors Sabrina Jeffries, Karen Hawkins, and Candace Camp, and USA TODAY bestselling author Meredith Duran come together for a sizzling historical romance holiday anthology.

In the snowy Scottish countryside, Karen Hawkins’s rakish duke has an unforgettable holiday encounter in Twelve Kisses when the alluring lady he surprises under the mistletoe is not who he expected, but a long-lost love with a score to settle. In By Any Other Name, Edinburgh is aglitter for Christmastime as Candace Camp sends a curious gentleman in hot pursuit of an intriguing lady in disguise—one who refuses to reveal her true identity, though she fears he has already stolen her heart with his kiss. In Sweetest Regret, will the festive spirit of the season sweep Meredith Duran’s feisty heroine beneath the mistletoe—and back into the arms of the dashing rogue whose carelessness soiled her reputation and sent her into exile in London?

In this all-new story collection sparkling with sexy charm and heartwarming wit, four beloved bestselling authors reveal the mix-ups and make-ups, the missed chances and golden opportunities that come but once a year.

By Any Other Name by Candace Camp

Rylla Campbell is a woman on a mission to find her brother and if that means sneaking out in the middle of night dressed as a man to visit notorious gambling hell’s, then that is what she will do. What she doesn’t expect is to find an unlikely hero, who kisses divinely and is determined to discover her true identity.

Gregory Rose only needs a few hours in the company of his mystery lady to know that he has to know her! She’s bold, funny, brave and her kiss leaves him reeling. So he sets out on a merry chase to find her again and make her his own. If that requires lending his hand in the effort to find her brother before Christmas, then Gregory is happy to oblige. Especially when there are more sweet kisses to enjoy and a lady’s heart worth winning to be won.

Sweetest Regret by Meredith Duran

It’s almost Christmas, and Georgie has been left in the lurch by her diplomat father, Sir Philip to hostess a party for his fellow diplomats and ferret out who may have a stolen a potentially dangerous letter. To make matters worse, her father has sent for the last man in the world that Georgie ever wants to see again—Lucas Godwin—to help unravel the mystery.

Two years ago, Georgie was on cloud nine when the handsome Mr. Godwin looked her way and a brief courtship began. Too brief. Overnight he was gone, without explanation and Georgie could only conclude the worst.

Brought together once more the shadows of the past linger, but the passion that has never died springs to life and conflicts ensue. The chemistry between these two is palatable and the resolution not only provides a perfect ending to the story, but also feels like the perfect finale to an already amazing anthology of extraordinarily entertaining romantic, holiday tales.
