AVOIDING THE MISTLETOE – with Mistletoe, Jingle Belles, and Second Chances


BACK COVER BLURB - 1865 - Desperate widow Olivia Rose Baker abandons her dying hometown in Massachusetts to become a mail-order bride in male-dominated Seattle, Washington. Her abusive husband died in the Civil War and left Olivia wary of marriage, so she hopes to take a teaching position rather than become a bride.

But the man who purchased her ticket to Seattle insists she fulfil her contract and marry.


Stark Macaulay, former Confederate and now Sheriff of Seattle, is smitten with Olivia. Stark, unlike all the rich men in Seattle, has nothing to offer Olivia but his love. But Olivia hates anything to do with the Confederacy.

Both fight an uphill battle. Both clash with demons from the past. Both struggle with desperate futures. Will these strong-willed people gain a second chance at love?



Desperate widow Olivia accepts a position as a mail-order bride, yet refuses to accept any male’s proposal. Fighting demons of his own, Sheriff Stark sees a second chance for love. This widower vows to win the widow or die trying…and almost does.

Have never been kissed by anyone special under the mistletoe. I think it would be an amazing experience. I would love to review your book. 6 weeks please.
I have kissed my husband under the mistletoe. He is very special.

I have never hung mistletoe at all. Please enter me in the giveaway.

1. You know what - I don't think I have! I know I have heard many versions of it, but now I am wondering what the full original story is.  

1.  I have heard a few ideas about the mistletoe tradition, but I would love to hear the actual info.  Would love to read/review your book; I have read several of your titles.  Thanks.

Unfortunately my answer to all 3 questions is NO, but I'd love to try this trick with my husband.

please, enter me for a GC and a copy of the book. It looks so interesting. 

I've actually hung real mistletoe in my house (not the plastic kind) to catch my husband. But he's a willing participant!
Please enter me in the drawing.

I have not heard the full story of the tradition of mistletoe and every year I hang 2 mistletoe balls and try to maneuver my husband under them but to no avail! 

Love your books, Anne, and would love to review this one for you too.

Ooohhh, this sounds like a fun read!

I think i was kissed under a mistletoe once by my own abusive, now ex husband. Lol. So far, he is the only man i ever kissed. I likely can relate to your heroine.
I think I did read somewhere about the misteltoe, but now can't remember the significance of it.

Thanks for the chance ti win your fun book and the giftcard.
P.s. I am currently reading and enjoying Red is for Rookie!
I have not heard the full story of the Mistletoe. I’ve never hung one or kissed anyone under it either. I’m pretty boring, aren’t I?
Can have review up in about 8 weeks from receiving the book.
