Christmas is about more than gifts, and that is exactly the focus of this delightful holiday collection. This collection of 10 holiday stories range from the Highlands of Scotland to Regency London. The first story in the collection is “Heart of Thanks.” Raphael and Elysande see each other from across the room, but their clans are feuding.

STEAMPUNK/LGBTQIA:  Rafe Lancaster has responsibilities. Responsibilities that he would rather ignore. His father is sick and does not have much time left. Rafe is the heir to House Stravaigor and this requires him to produce an heir of his own, which means he must marry. However, Rafe is already in love with Ned Winters.

Faith Cameron has been fostered by the Pendray family for a few years. She was rescued by Gray Pendray after her father was executed for treason and her mother committed suicide, and she has never forgotten about him. For the last few years, Gray has been a spy for the Scottish Council. When he comes home, he sees how Faith has blossomed into a beautiful young woman.

Caleb Garrett has injured his shoulder, and it needs stitches. He can either go to the doctor he cannot stand or try his luck with the new doctor, Macy Dallas.  Caleb isn’t that impressed with Macy’s house, but as she sutures his arm, he can’t help but be intrigued by her. Macy explains how she ended up in the tiny town and is just waiting for an internship at a hospital.
