Sweet Yuletide

USA Today Bestselling author Melissa McClone has written over forty-five novels. 

With a degree in mechanical engineering from Stanford University, she worked for a major airline where she traveled the globe and met her husband. But analyzing jet engine performance couldn’t compete with her love of writing happily ever afters. 

Melissa lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, three children, a spoiled Norwegian Elkhound, and cats who think they rule the house. They do! 

One beach cottage, two strangers, and a kiss under the mistletoe that changes everything…

Sheridan DeMarco wants to be anywhere but home for the holidays. She’s happy to spend Christmas house-sitting in South Carolina, far away from her parents’ new blended families. Too bad when she arrives at the charming beach cottage, she isn’t as blissfully alone as she planned.

Michael “”Mikey”” Patterson needs to stay out of sight until his attorney gives him the all clear. He finds the perfect place in a small coastal town, but there’s a problem. Mikey isn’t the only one staying at the beach house, and his surprise roommate pushes all his buttons.

A sprig of mistletoe and one memorable kiss make Sheridan and Mikey forget their plans to stay away from each other. But when family gets in the way, will their happily ever after get tossed out along with the discarded wrapping paper and tinsel? 



He shook his head. “Nope.”

“Excuse me?”

“You’re not skipping Christmas.”

She didn’t understand how he knew that was what she wanted to do. Not that it mattered. “I am.”

“No.” He leaned forward. “Your father took your job and your apartment. Don’t let him take Christmas from you, too.”

As her jaw dropped, Michael’s words swirled in her head. Talk about a lightbulb moment. “I never thought about it that way, but you’re right.”

“I usually am.” With a satisfied grin, he ate a bite of his cinnamon roll.
