ALL I WANT
THREE STORIES. THREE COUPLES. ONE HOLIDAY.

Pretty Near Perfect
by Jolene Perry

The last thing Norah needs is to be attracted to anyone -- especially in her deceased fiancĂ©’s parents’ home. Collin’s starting a new career, and has no business getting involved -- especially while staying with his roommate’s family, who very kindly offered to take him in for the holidays. Unfortunately, you just don’t always pick the most convenient time and place to fall for someone.

Six Days of Christmas
by Kaylee Baldwin

When Natalie goes home with her best friend for Christmas, she expects plenty of quiet time to work on a winning ad so she can turn her dream internship into her dream job. Instead, she gets time-consuming Christmas festivities, a house full of children, and Jimmy, her best friend’s brother -- someone who makes her question everything she’s always thought she wanted.

Twist of Fate
by Rachael Anderson

When a postcard meant for Kenzie winds up in Ty’s mailbox, Ty’s faced with a decision. Should he tell her that her fiancĂ© is breaking up with her and let it ruin her favorite holiday, or should he do what he’s wanted to do since he met her -- make a move and hope that he can win her over before she discovers there won’t be a wedding after all?

An Excerpt from Pretty Near Perfect by Jolene Perry:

She wasn’t kidding about the bookstore. I think we’ve been here for two hours. She’s come to show me two photography books, and I’m flattered she’d take the time. But now I’m ready to go, and I’ve just about given up finding her. We should have exchanged numbers.

When I find her she’s facing my direction, and a guy’s back is to me. He’s chattering in that nervous voice that all guys get when there’s something they really want to say but aren’t sure how to say it.

Her brows are down, she’s shifting her weight, and she’s chewing on her lower lip. If I was that guy, I’d take it as a sign that she’s not interested.

“...I mean, while you’re in town, you know? We could get a group together, and...”

Her eyes catch mine where I’m frozen at the end of an aisle of books.

“I’m here with someone,” she says. “But it was nice catching up with you, Nate.” She pats his shoulder as she moves straight toward me.

She tilts her head to the side and taps her cheek. Please, she mouths. My heart jumps. She wants me to kiss her cheek? She’s next to me in seconds. Too soon. Too soon to think. I lean down to kiss her cheek. She smells like vanilla, sweet, but not too sweet. My lips touch her skin, and it takes every ounce of strength in me to move away the way I know I should. My heart’s pounding. When did that happen?

“Where have you been?” I try to chuckle, but I’m sure it comes very strange.

“Ready to go?” She steps forward, sliding her arm around my waist, which is really just an invitation for me to slide my arm around hers, right?
