Meet Regina Puckett
Jillian Magee, a fifth-grade math teacher who loves Christmas, has a freezer filled with Christmas cookies, all her Christmas gifts wrapped, and the red scarves all knitted for her caroling party. Unfortunately, the universe seems bent on depriving her of joy this season, even when it supplies her with a well-intentioned celestial do-gooder—a quirky female version of Jacob Marley.
Tristán Solano, famous as Trystan Sol in the rock music world, grew up across the street from Jillian Magee, his first friend at five years old and the woman he left in order to grab the brass ring. After eight years with a popular group, earning more money than he can possibly spend in one lifetime, he longs for his old, uncomplicated life. As Christmas approaches, he leaves the band and heads home with his four-year-old daughter.
Will Jillian have her heart broken again, or can she and Tristán overcome the past and keep each other warm this Christmas?
Rora Nepas has a dream, to leave the lonely piece of storm battered seashore that she has called home for too many years. Letting the legacy of being a thief’s daughter fade into the dust of her slowly crumbling cottage, if only she could control the impulse to steal everything that glitters.
Cyraes is the mysterious eight legged merman who washes ashore, dripping blue blood from a serious injury and bound in seaweed. Bringing with him the ultimate temptation, a beautiful jeweled hairpin that tempts Rora’s will. For so long, she had dreamed of nothing but the stars guiding her on a journey all her own. Now she has a new friendship built on lies, but as the threat of the blistering storms battering the coast grows ever stronger. It will only be a matter of time before walls fall down and a choice will be made.
Will she choose her collection of precious treasures and lies? Or will she choose a new life exploring the world under the sea?
