But one Christmas season sees both inn and village seething with adventure, intrigue, rabbits, and, above all, love as four couples find Yuletide happiness. A Knight Before Christmas by Grace Burrowes With her year of mourning at an end, Penelope Carrington must remarry in haste, or her portion of her late husband's estate won't be enough to dower her younger sisters. Shy, handsome man of business Sir Leviticus Sparrow longs to give Penelope a marriage proposal for Christmas-and his heart-but Sir Levi must first foil the other bachelors scheming to meet Penelope under the mistletoe in his place. In The Duke's Arms by Carolyn Jewel What's a Duke to do when he's made an awful impression on the love of his life? The Duke of Oxthorpe lost his intensely guarded heart to Miss Edith Clay when Edith's rich cousin sought to attach the duke's marital interest. So smitten is Oxthorpe with the former poor relation that he's gone through intermediaries to sell Edith a property adjoining the ducal seat. Edith doesn't much care for the haughty duke, but as Christmas approaches, Oxthorpe reveals himself to be reserved rather than arrogant, considerate, and-blame the mistletoe!-an accomplished kisser. Will Edith hold Oxthorpe's earlier behavior against him, or will she learn that the best holiday gifts can be the most unexpected? Licensed to Wed by Miranda Neville If Lord Carbury could learn to take no for an answer, his marriage proposal might earn him a yes! Wyatt, Viscount Carbury is much too busy to court a bride, but when his childhood neighbor, Robina Weston, is left orphaned and penniless, Wyatt dutifully adds marrying Robina to his list of responsibilities. Wyatt is dismayed to learn that for Robina, poverty and pride are preferable to sharing life with an arrogant, infuriating man who always thinks he knows best. When Wyatt and Robina must endure Christmas in the country together, antipathy turns to interest, and then to unexpected attraction. Will they fight their feelings, or yield to the surprising gifts the holidays offer? The Spy Beneath the Mistletoe by Shana Galen Fledgling spy Pierce Moneypence seeks a highwayman and the key to Eliza's heart.

"Is there an idea or a dream that is lingering in the back of your mind this Christmas season?" asks the Reverend Robert H. Schuller in Joy to the World: Inspirational Christmas Messages from America's Preachers. "Is there some long-lost hope that you just cannot forget? God often comes through these thoughts. It is God at work in you." "Track what we call our good fortune and we shall see God clearly in our lives," says the Reverend Gardner C. Taylor in his message. He asked the question "Did you ever sit among your family and, strangely, feel a thankfulness which made you somewhat shamefacedly brush a tear away? You heard the angels sing!" "Christmas is a time of establishing and celebrating many traditions," begins the Reverend Paula White in her reflection. This is but a sampling of dozens of messages on the true meaning of Christmas included in this first book to celebrate the spirituality of Christmas by bringing together a diverse collection of messages from Christian leaders from across the country. Contributors to this collection represent congregations from Hawaii to New York to Atlanta and all the regions surrounding and in between. These inspirational words are from men and women who minister to and console young and old from all walks of life and who reflect the range of ethnicities and Christian religious traditions that characterizes America today. This timeless treasure trove of inspiration and teaching has something for everyone and is the perfect gift for the season of giving. Joy to the World shares the spirit of Christmas throughout the year.

The church bell chimed 8 times in the distance and Kara knew it was 8 o’clock in the evening. The air around her so desperately cold that her breath chilled the instant it left her lips. Ice crystals formed on her hair from where the moist breath had enveloped a few strands. Her feet and hands burned from the cold even as she tried to curl them closer to her body. Her shoes a simple pair of canvas running shoe offered little protection to her small feet. Her feet hurt so bad as her body shook. Her face softly glistens with trails of tears. Mommy I’m sorry I am late. I know you must be scared. I’m scared too. She sobbed in the darkness. At all of 9 years old she knew she was going to die there in that office where her mother had once worked. Daddy She said in quietly Please don’t be mad. I didn’t mean to get lost She said quietly.She clasped her hands in those yellow work gloves of her father and bowed her head her voice came out in a soft quivering whisper. Now I lay me down to sleep She prayed. I pray the Lord my soul to keep. If die before I wake before I wake I pray the lord my soul to take. Those were the only words to Jesus that she knew and she prayed them over and over again until she fell asleep there in the cold.

A heartwarming story about childhood friends, broken lives, and a long ago promise that just might offer the hope of love for today. Years ago, the day before Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend Nolan sat beneath the Spanish moss of an ancient oak tree where they wrote letters to each other, and sealed them in a rusty old metal box. The plan was to return eleven years later and read them. But now, as that date arrives, much has changed. Ellie, bereft of the faith she grew up with, is a single mom living in a tired apartment trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she watches television to catch a glimpse of her old friend -Nolan, now an NBA star, whose terrible personal tragedies fueled his faith and athletic drive in equal measure. But Nolan also suffers from a transcendent loneliness that nothing has ever eased. In their separate lives, as Ellie and Nolan move toward the possibility of a reunion at the oak tree, Kingsbury weaves a tale of heart-wrenching loss, the power of faith, and the wounds that only love can heal.
