In the latest installment of the popular Timeless Romance Anthology,  “Silver Bells” takes readers on a Christmas journey through various historical times and places to find love amidst the season. 


 In “A Fairy Christmas” Kitty Aldershot, a penniless orphan living under the generous kindness of her very wealthy relatives, struggles to find her place and realize her dream of love with the only man she has ever wanted.


“A Christmas Promise” takes us to Ireland, as lively Sean Kirpatrick drives a team of high-spirited horses in exchange for employment.  Unfortunately bad luck lands him asking for the help of a most fiery and intriguing woman. 


“Twelve Months” by Heather B. Moore introduces Lucien and Cora upon the death of her husband (and Lucien’s best friend.) What most assuredly promises to be one of the worst Christmases for both brings surprises for both!


“A Fezziwig Christmas” takes the familiar character of Ebenezer Scrooge and his young friend Dick Wilkens as they navigate the courtship market during the holidays to win the sisters they have fallen in love with. 


In “A Taste of Home”, Claire Jennings finds herself stranded with William Rhodes, her childhood nemesis and prankster, when she arrives for a Christmas visit to find her home under quarantine with measles! 


“My Modern Girl” introduces Margie, a country girl amidst the Roaring 20s whose only ambition is to live in a city and be “Modern.”  But is it enough to make her forget the boy she left behind?


Each of these sweet holiday stories brings a warmth and enjoyment that fits perfect with the season.  Although short stories, the amount of time given to include all six doesn’t allow for the depth one desires and the promise the talent has.  Still, for those who need a quick get-away during a very busy season, these snippets are absolutely perfect!
