State of Romance visits Washington, the Evergreen State, at USA Today's HEA Blog at this link.   I discovered several series (in all genres) but I overlooked Jill Shalvis' Lucky Harbor series.  To correct that mistake, let me spotlight her newest novella, MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY:


Wild child Chloe Thompson can't believe how much things have changed. She still can't get enough of her sexy husband Sawyer, but he seems to prefer working to thinking about impending fatherhood. So tonight, a very pregnant Chloe is escaping her troubles at the town Christmas party.

Sheriff Sawyer Thompson hopes surprising Chloe at the party will give him a chance to set things right. But as the snow begins to fall and the wind rages, he wonders whether he can make it back in time. While mother nature conspires to keep Sawyer and Chloe apart, an unexpected arrival will require them to kiss and make up . . . and ring in the happiest holiday Lucky Harbor has ever seen. 


I am giving away a digital copy of MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY, to one randomly selected commenter.  To enter the giveaway,
