Christmas is coming, and the streets are alive with the sounds of the season: "Silver Bells" and sleigh rides, jingle bells and carolers. Choruses of "Here Comes Santa Claus" float over the snow-covered landscape, bringing the joy of the holiday to revelers as they deck the halls and string the lights "Up on the Housetop." And when the songs of the season touch four charmed couples, melody turns to romance and harmony turns to passion. For these "Merry Gentlemen" and their lovely ladies will learn that with the love they have found, not even a spring thaw will cool their desire or destroy their winter wonderland.

"Up on the Housetop"
by Linda O. Johnston

In "Up on the Housetop," Carrie Ritenour, a lovely young widow, wants nothing more to do with men but yearns to adopt a baby. As Christmas approaches, Carrie finds the ideal situation, a pregnant teen who intends to give up her baby. But Carrie is stymied by the interference of the teen's handsome older brother, Sam DiGregorio. Carrie lobbies Sam, the mayor of their small town, to prove she is the right mother for the baby... and in the process finds love Up on the Housetop.


"This was a great Christmas Anthology. All four authors presented a Christmas story that reminded me of the magic of Christmas, restoring our faith in words such as love, friendship and happiness.  What a breath of fresh air. I loved this book. It raised my spirits and reminded me how wonderful a holiday Christmas, the gifts being what people need the most-love and understanding. Try this book-it truly will bring a smile to your lips. Happy reading. " -- Sally Klaczkiewicz, Amazon.com

"WINTER WONDERLAND is just the book to spread tons of holiday cheer." -- Jill M. Smith, RT Book Reviews
