Once Upon a Christmas Kiss…

It’s that time of year again… Christmas is coming, so why not put yourself in the mood by reading a bunch of historical holiday novellas? 9 novellas for 99 cents by USA today and bestselling authors is a great deal. Here’s the author list: Catherine Kean, Cathy MacRae, Anna Markland, Amanda McCabe, Hildie McQueen, Laurel O’Donnell, Lana Williams, and last of all me, Barbara Monajem.


I have a duet of novellas in Once Upon a Christmas Kiss. They were previously published in separate anthologies that no longer exist, but they actually belong together, because characters in both stories have an unusual ability: they can send erotic dreams. It’s a talent which can be both a blessing and a curse.

But Christmas + romance = very happy ever after, so it definitely ends up being a blessing!! Here are the blurbs of my two stories. For a complete list, hop on over to Amazon.com and read them all.

Yuletide Nights, a novella duet by Barbara Monajem

Book One, The Reluctant Seductress: Forced to work as a spy due to her mysterious seductive powers, Lettice Raleigh emerges from the war with her virginity intact and her reputation in tatters. She hasn’t a hope of marrying—but she doesn’t reckon with the very proper Lord Hadrian Oakenhurst, who has one besetting sin: curiosity.

Book Two, Love at First Dance: Sir Colwyn North’s uncanny skill as a lover made him an excellent spy—but it also gave him the worst of reputations. His only hope of winning the hand of the very proper Lady Jane Dew is to trick her into marriage. By way of seduction. While in disguise.

Happy Early Christmas!
