A year’s worth of novellas from twelve inspirational romance authors. Happily ever after guaranteed.


What started as a whim turned into an accidental—and very public—engagement. Can Layla and Seth keep up the façade in Chapel Springs this holiday season—for the sake of her career . . . and his heart?


Under normal circumstances, Seth Murphy—the best friend of Layla O’Reilly’s ex-fiancé—would be the last person she’d marry. But the news of their upcoming (and phony) nuptials convinces a big client that Layla may be high-society enough to work for his agency—a coup that would put her fledgling home-staging business on the map.


Seth has secretly loved Layla for years, even when she was dating his best friend. Maybe she’ll never forgive him for the way he hurt her back then, but he has to try. And Layla is willing to keep up their engagement farce until she’s landed her client.


For Layla, it's the chance to save her career. But for Seth, it's his last chance to win her heart.

My Review 4

A December Bride is a sweet, second chance romance story and is perfect for the holiday season! This is the first book in a series of novellas called A Year of Weddings.  The series is set around a wedding for each month of the year. This is a great way to have a year filled with romance.

This is the first book I’ve read from author Denise Hunter and I really enjoyed her writing.  This is a short and quick read but it was an enjoyable story. The plot was simple but it didn’t feel rushed and the writer does a great job of developing the characters. The chemistry between them was amazing.

This is a Christian romance but the mention of religion is subtle. The author created a romance that was steamy but still clean.  I look forward to reading more from this author.
