A Holiday Novella by Marie Long.
Deck the halls and string the garland, it’s time for a ho-ho-ho-holiday bake off!
Eager to elevate her business to a can’t miss tourist attraction in White Pine, Arianna Willis has her heart set on winning the town’s Christmas dessert contest. It really roasts her chestnuts to learn Mark, a chef there on vacation, is attempting to steal that coveted title from her.
Mark Ellison didn’t mean to be the lump of coal in Arianna’s stocking. Having visited her bakery, he knows her talents in the kitchen can’t be denied. Still, coerced into helping out another local business, his competitive streak won’t allow him to submit anything but his very best.
Yet from their rivalry a flurry of attraction begins to form. Will Mark honor his previous commitments, knowing it could hurt Arianna’s bakery? Or will a life with her, in that picturesque small town, become the greatest gift of all?
Fans of sweet, small town romances will fall in love with One Sweet Christmas by Marie Long!
