A Maine Christmas or Two by J.S. Scott and Cali MacKay


Book One Synopsis 



The Billionaire’s Angel by J.S. Scott (The Billionaire’s Obsession Christmas Story)


Considered an eccentric beast by most of the residents in Amesport,
Maine, Billionaire Grady Sinclair stays isolated on his private
peninsula in a grand mansion most people are afraid to approach. The
arrangement suits Grady just fine, until a fearless angel lands on his
doorstep, making him painfully aware of how lonely he really is, and
how much he wants to keep the fiery blonde cherub for his very own. But
will he have to become the monster the townspeople believe him to be in
order to get his Christmas wish?

Emily Ashworth needs money, and plenty of it. As director of the
Youth Center of Amesport, she either finds the funds she needs to supply
Christmas presents and other items she needs to purchase to give the
kids of Amesport a Christmas, or they won’t have one at all. Desperate,
she ventures to the Amesport Peninsula to ask the wealthiest person in
the area to provide a Christmas for her misplaced, abused, or troubled
kids, and to help keep the doors of the much-needed refuge open. Emily
is shocked when she meets Grady, and surprisingly more attracted to him
than she has ever been to any man. He might have seemed like a
barbarian in the beginning, but Emily quickly learns that Grady is
nothing like she’d imagined. Was the monster of Amesport truly the very
devil, or just a lonely man who needs the gift of love for Christmas?

Excerpt 




Grady tried not to flinch as he met his
father’s cold, gray-eyed stare, eyes so very much like his own. “I don’t like
parties,” he stated flatly, knowing it went much deeper than that, but he
wasn’t about to try to explain. His father had never understood him, and he
never would.

“I don’t give a shit about what you like
and don’t like. No son of mine is going to be an idiot and
a coward. Man up and do what’s expected of you,” his father growled.
“Downstairs. Five minutes. And try not to act like a fool for a change.” Martin
Sinclair turned around and left without another word.

Grady let out
a huge sigh, glad that his father was hosting the annual Christmas party and
probably didn’t have more time to rake him over the coals for not being the man
he wanted all of his sons to be.

Martin Sinclair wanted every one of his
children to be just like him, and Grady knew he was…different. He didn’t want
to be, but he was, and at the age of eighteen, he knew he’d never be like his
father.

Walking to his closet, he pulled out a
suit and tie, shucking his jeans and t-shirt to put on more formal clothing.
Nothing less than a suit and tie would do, and if he couldn’t act like a
Sinclair, at least he would dress like one.

Book Two 

A Mermaid Isle Christmas by Cali MacKay 

Once Aidan Nordson made his fortune, he was finally able to leave
behind the world that left him broken and scarred. Escaping to Mermaid
Isle, all he wants is to be left alone to live his life and deal with
his demons, but when a blizzard hits and strands Chloe Madison at his
door, the gorgeous and feisty brunette stirs feelings in him he’d rather
push away. Forced together by fate and circumstance, can Aidan let go
of the past that haunts him so he can learn to love again or will the
storm in his heart swallow him in its darkness?

 
Excerpt




Aidan got ready
to hunker down for the nor’easter that was threatening to hit Mermaid Isle.
Maine winters could certainly be brutal, but this storm had veered from its
original course and now threatened to be one for the record books. It would
guarantee the island a picture-perfect, snowy white Christmas, though that did
little to ease the demons that tormented him this time of year.
 

His pantry was
well-stocked, he had a cord of wood for his fireplace, and a generator that
should kick in if he lost power. He even had a bottle of whiskey should the
need arise, though more often than not, he chose to live with the pain rather
than dull it.
 

It usually
helped to stay busy, and he’d found that woodworking and making handcrafted
furniture was the only thing that brought him some semblance of peace. Not that
it would be enough with the holidays approaching.
 

The wind started
to howl and whistle as icy flakes of snow whipped against the large windows. He
stoked the fire and added another piece of wood when there was an unexpected
knock at his door, sending his shaggy hound into a barking fit. “Whist, pup.”
 

Who the hell was
out in this mess? He then thought of his cousin, Lucy, who’d recently moved in
down the road with her husband and was nearly five months pregnant. Panic
snaked through his chest as he yanked the door open, worried she was somehow in
trouble.
 

The person on
his doorstep wasn’t his cousin, and it sure as hell wasn’t anyone else he
recognized either. She looked like Snow White—porcelain skin with rosy cheeks,
black as night hair, ice blue eyes, and lush, naturally red lips. Definitely
not a local, though what the hell she was doing out in this bad of a storm, he
hadn’t a clue. And it was really coming down now. “Can I help you?”
