Rediscover the magic of Christmas!
SIX JEWELS OF THE QUILL AUTHORS offer exciting holiday stories—each featuring a wish, possibly small, but straight from the heart!
A collection of Christmas stories for readers to enjoy this holiday season...or any day of the year!
All She Wore Was A Bow (Men of Moonstone Series, Book 2 by Christine DeSmet
They’re tall as the oaks, bold as the bulls they’ve ridden in rodeos, and they don’t talk about the past. They’re three buddies who’ve seen the worst the world has to dish out. One by one, they ride into Moonstone for missions impossible and women improbable.
Kincaid “Kade” Hunter rocked the rodeo world with a record-breaking bull ride in Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s a rising star! He grew up wild and willing to try just about anything—except marriage. But when he comes to Moonstone at Christmas-time to save his friend John “Bozeman” Hall from marrying what looks like the wrong woman, Kade meets with interference extraordinaire: Gloria Gibson, the wedding planner from Hell. Gloria has her own ideas about where to hang mistletoe and what or who Kade should be riding to glory.
Little Cat Feet by Margaret L. Carter
In this tale inspired by the legend that animals can speak on Christmas Eve, a teenage runaway on the streets saves a stray cat from abuse. The cat helps her in return.
Christmas Faith by Karen Woods
Faith Caldwell finds her name to be a joke. Faith? Not her. Not when everyone she’s ever loved has been cruelly taken from her. What kind of loving God lets people suffer like that? The veterinarian wants nothing to do with the God she grew up trusting implicitly. So, when the new neighbor happens to be a widowed minister with a houseful of kids, Faith tries to be civil but distant. But none of the Hendersons—from little Clara to “Father Ed” in the Anglican collar—understand civil or distant. Ed helps her to realize God still loves her, but can reborn faith heal her scars?
Perfect Cadence (Kaleidoscope Series, Book 1) by Karen Wiesner
Kaleidoscope Office Building provides employment to nine hot, young singles—all about to make a love connection. Working 9 to 5 has never been so complicated…or so much fun!
Thirty-year-old Keri Woods has had it with her no-commitment, no-way boyfriend Rob. Planning to get her head on straight, she accepts her boss Angela’s offer to use the Lewis family’s cabin for a two-week skiing vacation over the Christmas holiday. Little does Keri realize that her boss’s’ cousin, Joshua Lewis, is already occupying the very same cabin at the very same time.
Ten years earlier, Keri and Joshua had shared a single, unforgettable day and night together that ended with a kiss that left them both desperately smitten. Yet Joshua’s life had been too complicated. At only twenty-six, he’d realized that there could be no long-distance, long-term relationship between them. He hadn’t been ready to have his whole life happen to him at once. His decision to leave and never see her again had come back to bite him in the butt. For years after confiding to his closest friend Dandy—the foreman on his father’s cattle ranch in Fever, Texas and the true father figure in his life—Joshua had had to listen to the old man encourage and berate him for not following his heart with Keri Woods.
Joshua has come to the family cabin after the recent death of Dandy, who’d made him promise to return to the cabin to “mend old regrets.” The last thing Joshua expects to find is the drop-dead beautiful woman he’d regretted abandoning a decade earlier naked in his bed.
Unbeknownst to either of them, Dandy and Angela had schemed to make all of Joshua and Keri’s Christmas wishes come true.

"Perfect Cadence" is from prolific author Karen Wiesner's Kaleidoscope Series and looks at young singles working in the same office building, whose Christmas plans turn topsy turvy. "Christmas Faith," a heartbreaking yet wholly optimistic inspirational romance from Karen Woods, works on many semantic levels.
