We’re celebrating Christmas here at Romancing a Blog, and we’ve already enjoyed a Christmas tradition shared by author Jacki Delecki. Today I welcome historical romance writer Alanna Lucas to share a Christmas tradition, and I think it’s one many of us can agree with!
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is decorating the tree with my family and then watching the movie “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”
And now for some Christmas stories from Alanna.
Don’t miss Mistletoe Waltz
Marcus, the Marquess of Hawthorne, vowed never to fall in love. He should have vowed never to marry. Caught in a compromising situation, he’s been forced to wed the young woman he was trying to rescue. Beautiful? Yes. But his new bride’s apprehensions seem worse than his own, and as family and friends arrive at Deer Park to celebrate Christmastide, all he wants is for Faith to play the part of a happy wife and hostess.
She will not, however—or cannot. And when she commits yet another desperate act, this time with disastrous results, Marcus must save Faith once again. Now he must discover what drives her, what dark secrets keep her unable to trust or love, and what she truly desires. Only then will they, with the magic of mistletoe, overcome the pasts and taste the delights of the season.

And Once Upon a Montana Christmas
Miss Eva Kenward left England with a dream, but when she finds herself stranded on the rugged frontier of Montana with a babe in arms, only one man—a handsome cowboy—can make that holiday wish come true.
Miss Eva Kenward does not want to spend another Christmas alone. Leaving Queen Victoria’s England, she journeys to America in search of an uncle but finds herself on the rugged frontier of Montana. And with no money and no acquaintances, the rudest man she has ever met is the one she must engage. Especially considering the precious bundle in her arms.
“Hunt” Strauss has been fooled before by beauty. So when the ravishing young woman arrives on his doorstep, he suspects her of ulterior motives. But perhaps the baby she holds truly is his kin…and when Miss Kenward finds herself stranded after a hotel fire, he reluctantly agrees to help. Bringing her to his sprawling ranch, Hunt tries to keep his distance. But the enticing woman and her enthusiasm for the season soon prove that fairy tale love stories—and holiday wishes—really can come true.
