Here are the ones I have read so far:

A Dundee Christmas by Brenda Novak
I am a huge fan of Ms. Novak's Whiskey Creek series and have not read any of the Dundee series, but I really enjoyed this story. Cierra Romera is from Guatemala and came to Las Vegas, NV to be a mail order bride for an older man. The day before their marriage, the man dies and Cierra is left all alone. This was suppose to be her chance at money to help her orphaned siblings back home. When Cierra is told she could have a place to live in Dundee, Idaho, she decides to hitch rides in hope of a better future. When Cierra gets lost, she ends up knocking on the door of Ken Holbrook, a retired football player who just moved back home. Let's just say sparks fly! Ken offers to help Cierra when he realizes she is all alone without much. Cierra is too proud to just take his assistance and instead becomes his housekeeper. I really liked how these two were not looking for each other, but somehow found each other! Their story is sweet with a little bit of sexy and has a wonderful happy ending.

Finding Each Other by Melody Anne

I loved this great story of second chances. Brayden Steele used to date Cora Richmond but because of bad things from his past, he walked away from her, but never forgot her. Ten years later, now that Brayden's in a better place, he has come back for his girl! He knows he has a tough road ahead of him but when he first sees Cora, he can tell that she still has feeling for him. I really enjoyed how Brayden pursued her. It was a fun, sweet story and I just loved how Brayden eventually won Cora over....and the ending.....perfect!

Gingerbread Dreams by Anna J. Stewart

I have never read anything by this author before, but I really enjoyed her voice. She adds such emotion with a side of humor that really kept me intrigued. Her characters were slightly quirky and that made the story even better! Hamish MacFadden and his father have had the responsibility of his sister's six kids for the past 10 months. She just dropped them off to travel with her band. Just as their lives are getting into a routine, Essie Goodman crashes into their world when her gingerbread house on wheels breaks down in front of their house and ends up stuck in the snow. With a horrible storm approaching and a broken radiator, Essie accepts their offer to stay with them. Hamish is drawn to Essie's happy-go-lucky attitude along with her sweet, cute looks. Essie is drawn to Hamish but was raised that it is wrong to settle down and that you should instead continue to chase your dreams. After spending a few days with this crazy clan, Essie is starting to have doubts about her family's opinions. This was such a fun, sweet story and their happy ending was great! "
