A Very Merry Mistake

Lyra Parish

A sexy cinnamon-roll lumberjack offers me a ride into town, a stay at his cozy cabin, and eventually his bed. All things I can't refuse.


After several flirty glances and heated mistletoe kisses, we create rules: no strings attached and no falling in love. Agreeing to the impossible might be my biggest mistake yet.


I visited the small town for one reason only: to prove a point to my father.

Now I've got a fake boyfriend.

A secret to keep hidden.

And a choice to make that will determine more than just my future.


If you're searching for a spicy holiday romance with a protective cinnamon-roll lumberjack and sassy heroine, this book is for you! A Very Merry Mistake is a standalone with a sweet-as-gingerbread happily ever after. This small-town contemporary romance has a dash of grumpy/sunshine, forced proximity, secret identity, and tons of Southern goodness. Fade to black is NOT included!
