Hela Takes a Holiday by Rebekah Lewis
It's lonely being the queen of the dead. Hela longs for a life among the living, and a chance at love. When Loki grants her wish, she's elated…only to discover later that even a trickster god's daughter isn't safe from his deceit. How can she learn to adapt to life on Midgard if her presence disrupts the balance of life and death?
Björn the Untouchable requires a wife…but isn't in a hurry to find one. Escaping the festivities of Yule, he discovers a naked woman in the middle of the forest. Something about her isn't quite right, and having the same name as a death goddess is a bad omen to be sure. Nevertheless, he's completely enchanted by her.
Hela has only twelve days of the Yule celebration to remain human, but otherworldly threats linger. Can she find true love in the arms of a Viking warrior in the land of the living, or will she be the cause of an entire village's destruction? Only Loki knows, but he's not one to share his schemes…

Divine Justice by Shelli Rosewarne
He was sent to judge her... not fall for her.
As a justice angel, Jeremiah had been dispensing heavenly judgement for millenia. While he used to love his job, take pride it, then centuries of watching humans turn to selfishness and greed had left him cynical and bitter. These were no fit emotions for an angel and when he is summoned before the Archangel Council he is willing to accept his fate. Instead he is given one final task, one last judgement.
Holly was used to being alone. It didn't mean she didn't love her life, her friends, her work at the shelter. For Christmas though, she just wanted one thing; hope. Hospital tests were never fun and Holly had spent enough time being poked and prodded to never want to go through it again. When she encounters the mysterious Jeremiah she knows there's something different about him. Something that has her inviting him in out of the cold and into her home, where the fire isn't the only thing keeping them warm.
As secrets pile up faster than the snow outside, and lives hang in the balance, can Holly and Jeremiah both manage to get what they really want this Christmas?
An Angel for the Tree by Shelli Rosewarne
Daniel is a modern day Scrooge, but when a beautiful angel shows up on his doorstep can he believe in a Christmas miracle?
Daniel Everett is having a bad day. Firstly, it’s almost Christmas and he’s convinced Scrooge had the right idea in the first place, secondly his latest nanny has left him to cope alone with his five year old daughter – and quite frankly he would rather deal with several cut-throat mergers before breakfast than one small child.
When the beautiful Laurel shows up on his doorstep she’s a gift from heaven – literally! Unbeknown to him, Laurel is a real life angel and his carefully ordered life is about to be turned upside down as she’s determined to help Daniel feel again and to reconnect with his daughter.
What neither of them bank on is the sparks that fly between them.
As Laurel starts to thaw Daniel’s icy exterior, can he learn to trust again and start to believe in the impossible – and can they ever overcome the obstacles of coming from two separate worlds?
And of course I happen to have two Christmas novellas out as well. They are connected by two brothers, but you can read them individually.
