Release Day!!!!!!


I AM SO EXCITED!!! Today is a special day for me, as it's release day for my holiday boxed set, Mischief Under The Mistletoe! I was honored to be asked to take part in this set with so many talented authors and said yes immediately.

The set includes 19 authors with 19 brand new stories filled with holiday cheer and stories of love and hope and romance. Because we are romance authors and there's nothing we love more than helping people find their happily ever after.



Kristin Miller - The Bad Boy Meets his Match
When lingerie-store owner Cora Brennan plans a getaway at a quaint mountain retreat, she never expects to reunite with the playboy she spent a memorable night with in college. Can they finally admit their true feelings for each other before love is lost to them again?

Claudy Conn - Collide & Burn
Charlie knows when she first sees Wade Devon that he is
trouble. Wade likes to win. It is what he does and he wants strings attached. She has to ask herself, should she, or shouldn't she.

Melanie James - Snowflakes, Exes, and Ohs
With two men vying for her affection, Abbie's heart is torn between the two. One has always been there for her, no matter what. The other left when she needed him the most.

Mindy Klasky - Fly Me to the Moon
Lexi thinks she's recovered from the fire that burned her years ago. But when she falls for PTSD-ridden army veteran Finn, she learns how deep some scars can be.

Holly S. Roberts - Ruck
Van, one of the best players in rugby and the hottest player between the sheets is looking for a holiday miracle. His brother won the girl and Van's heart is broken. Could the gift of a lifetime be his for the taking or will this bad boy ruck it up again?

Stephanie Rowe - Wrapped Up In You
Can the Christmas magic of a coastal Maine island heal two broken souls when a winter storm strands them together?

Diane Rinella - It's A Marshmallow World
One Christmas, Darla was given a mystical gift, along with an ominous message. Years later, meeting Chris puts her head in a spin. Could it be that gift from long ago holds the key to their happiness?

Kate Angell - Snow One Like You
A Vermont Christmas Eve blizzard forces Allie to close Hartley's General Store. Her best friend Rhys arrives by snowmobile, not wanting her to endure the snowstorm alone. A playful kiss under the mistletoe warms more than their hearts.

Kimberly Kincaid - Play Me
Sophie Drayton has seen enough of the wild life to know that Emilio Barrett is bad news. But the sexy stripper has secrets of his own. Will Sophie's past come back to haunt her, or will Emilio prove that a bad boy can be also be a good man?

J.D.Tyler - One Last Miracle
After a case gone horribly wrong, FBI Agent Mark McClendon retreats to his late grandfather's isolated cabin, determined to escape his pain. He's completely unprepared to find himself falling for his pretty new neighbor--but when the past comes gunning for him, Mark's newfound love may mean the difference between a second tragedy and a holiday miracle.

Robin Covington - When You Open Your Eyes
War tore Gabe and Ellie apart and three years later, he's almost given up any hope that she'll come back to him. When she returns just before the holidays, he wants nothing more for the damaged, stubborn woman he loves to stay forever but she's ready to run as soon as the gifts are opened. Chased by her nightmares, Gabe's only hope of keeping Ellie is to convince her that he'll be there when she opens her eyes.

Suzanne Ferrell- Close To The Mistletoe
When teacher Holly Murphy walks into Westen's only bar to help her friend celebrate a divorce, she doesn't expect hot carpenter Nick Fisher to save her from an embarrassing situation. His heated kisses awakens something deep inside her, but when someone sets his sights on Holly, will Nick be the one to protect her close to the mistletoe?

Kathy Ivan - Yours For The Holidays
At her hospital's annual Bachelor Auction, event organizer Dr. Alanna Reeves is blindsided when the tables are turned and Blake Donovan offers a huge donation--for her! Can a trip to Florida for the holidays help them discover their true feelings or drive them apart forever?

Selena Laurence - Prince of the Press
Marcus Ambrose, the newest face in political media, is one hot ticket. But when he meets his brother's down-to-earth secretary Renee, his own heart takes a knock. Can Marcus's famous 'full-court press' convince the woman of his dreams to take a shot at love?

Jennie Marts - Worth the Shot
Addison Cavanaugh had one rule: Do not date hockey players. So kissing the newest trade to her dad's team should have been off-limits--even if he is hot enough to melt the ice. Is the new player worth the shot or is she is risking her heart in a game she can't possibly win?

Teri Riggs - Finding True's Love
Six months after True's last boss viciously attacked her, she's ready to take her therapist's advice and go back into the work force. She wants her life to be normal again and working for another man will be a giant step towards that goal.  Nick has been betrayed by a pretty face for the last time and has sworn off relationships. Or so he thought until the day his new assistant, True Kelly, walked into his office.

Jennifer Theriot - Unwrapping Noel
Noel Calabrese hates Christmas as much as she hates her life. While in the Napa Valley on a business trip, she meets Leon Hallas. Could this sexy, silver fox be her ticket to happiness?

MJ Fredrick - Bluestone Christmas
Come back to Bluestone, Minnesota for Christmas, where single mom Willow Branson has moved from Texas to make a home with her daughter. But moving from a Texas winter to a Minnesota one is more challenging than she expected, and handsome handyman Chase Granzer is more than happy to help her adapt...and keep her warm.

Deb Julienne - All I Want For Christmas
Rafe Donnelly hates everything to do with the holidays. Ali Sanders is a single mother, juggling two jobs and missing most of her son's childhood. Who knew a little boy's Santa wish could change so many lives?

I hope you'll pick up a copy of Mischief Under The Mistletoe and share in the holiday fun. I can't wait to hear what you think of my story, Yours For The Holidays (part of the Lovin' Las Vegas series).

My pre-order came in this morning! Can't wait to read it!

Michelle Miles said...

Happy release day, Kathy!! I hope you sell lots!!

Unknown said...

Great cover, Kathy. And I love the tagline about 19 hotties just waiting to be unwrapped

Phyllis said...

Got my pre-order delivered! Yippee on the new box set. Congrats to all!

Kathy Ivan said...

Thanks, Liese. Hopefully you'll have the corrected copy and not the place holder that Amazon sent out. If not, please be patient, because they are working on it. (It's been a rough day.)

Kathy Ivan said...

Thanks, Michelle. We were doing pretty good until the fiasco with Amazon sending out the wrong file. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Kathy Ivan said...

Hi Linda,
We certainly did get an eye-catching cover, didn't we. Wish I could take credit for the tag line. I did come up with the title for the boxed set though, does that count? LOL We actually came up wtih several and after everybody voted, they chose the one I'd suggested.

Kathy Ivan said...

Hi Phyllis. Hopefully you got the correct version and not the place holder. If you got the wrong one, as I stated above, please be patient. Amazon is working diligently (or so they said) on getting the right file out to everybody. They sent out 8,120 wrong files at midnight. Isn't that just swell?

Karilyn Bentley said...

Hi Kathy! Congrats on your release! I love the cover! Sorry about the mix-up, but hopefully it will be straightened out soon (if not already). Best wishes for many, many sales!!!

Sylvia said...

Congrats on the new release. Gorgeous cover and some great authors here. What a great deal for readers.

chris keniston said...

woo hoo - best part of holiday reading is the boxed sets - I'm cheering y'all on from Oregon - having a wonderful day at the Columbia River Gorge in honor of the set ! :)

Kathy Ivan said...

Thanks Karilyn. It has been a somewhat stressful day to say the least. But fingers crossed Amazon will get this mess fixed soon.

Kathy Ivan said...

Hi Sylvia,

Yes is a great eye-catching cover and I'm thrilled to have been asked to write with some of these amazing ladies. Now if Amazon would only fix their "mess" things might end on a positive note.

Kathy Ivan said...

Hi Chris,

Congratulations on your box set release today too! At least yours has gone smoothly. Wish I could say the same. 8120 pre-orders screwed up by Amazon! They sent out the placeholder instead of the actual correct book. They've been "working on it" all day and it's still not fixed. They've acknowledged it was their mistake, but that doesn't change the slew of 1-star reviews on the set.

I won't go into further details here, but suffice it to say it has been a very stressful day. First tornado warnings at 4 a.m., then the wrong file getting sent, and this evening the internet went out for hours.

Oh well, as Scarlet would say, "Tomorrow is another day."
