USA Today bestselling romance authors come together for Thanksgiving to tell the stories of four women who have not had the best experiences with the men they have dated in their pasts. With the help of family and loved ones this holiday season, can they learn to open their hearts one more time? If they can dare to make the leap, they could find themselves finally, thankfully in love…
There's no place like home, especially during Thanksgiving. After spending ten years as an officer and analyst with a special division in a federal cyber-investigation, Tripp Atsila is on the brink of burnout. He returns home and meets Parker Rutledge, who changed her name and moved to a small town hoping to leave the damage her ex-husband caused behind. Now someone's found her; someone who wants to make her pay for her ex-husband's crimes. Can she trust Tripp? Can she trust anyone?
Miranda Cox isn’t looking forward to heading home for Thanksgiving. She’d raved to everyone that Matthew was the one; now she has yet another failed relationship under her belt. Despite working as a translator in Ottawa, and loving traveling abroad, she’s thirty-four and still single. Little does she know that a chance encounter at Union Station in Toronto with her childhood friend, Taz Morrison, will lead to a very special holiday. Is it finally their time?
Chef Drew Barnett has been hired to create the perfect Thanksgiving for a potential restaurant investor and is forced to work in the client’s guesthouse kitchen due to a power outage in the main house. Jilted bride and food critic Claire Rothchild is pet-sitting a friend’s St. Bernard in the same guesthouse. Drew doesn’t know what to make of a food critic in his kitchen, just as Claire doesn’t know how to stop interfering with his dishes and passing tidbits to a mooching pooch. Is this a recipe for a Dog-Gone Holiday? Or for love?
Born with a degenerative eye disease, photographer Kelsey Thomas knows two things: she will be blind within five years and her family wants to see her married and settled first. Then Kelsey's boyfriend breaks up with her one week before she planned to introduce him to her family at her grandmother's island commitment ceremony. At the resort bar, she meets Dr. Noah Lawson. He spends his life inside his lab developing cutting-edge techniques to slow the progression of vision loss. He’s been offered funding with strings—save the eyesight of a relative of a wealthy investor—but he’s reluctant to agree. Noah is smitten by Kelsey—so much so that he agrees to be her fake wedding date for the Thanksgiving holidays. Too late, he realizes her connection to his potential investor. Is this a set-up? Or fate?

Meet the Authors & Editor
USA Today and national bestselling author Anna J Stewart has always had a book in her hand or a story in her heart. A child of the 70’s, early obsessions with Star Wars, Star Trek, and Wonder Woman set her on the path to creating fun, pulse-pounding romance in multiple sub-genres. Since her first novella with Harlequin in 2014, Anna has written and published more than forty romances and swears she’s just getting started. When she’s not writing, she’s dealing with a serious Supernatural and Jason Momoa addiction, experimenting with new cooking and baking recipes, surrounding herself with family and friends or hanging out at her local theater and attending fan conventions.
Prior to writing romance, award-winning USA Today bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. In addition to her Sunshine Valley series from Grand Central Forever, she’s published independently and with Harlequin Heartwarming, including her book Dandelion Wishes, which is an upcoming TV movie starring Amber Marshall. She lives in Central Oregon with her husband—her basketball-playing college sweetheart. While raising three kids, the couple did the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball thing. Between books, Melinda spends time with her husband remodeling their home by swinging a hammer, grouting tile, and wielding a paintbrush.

She's been blessed to see the power of true love in her grandparent's 70 year marriage and her parent's marriage of over 50 years.

Lezli Robyn is an Australian genre author and Assistant Publisher of Arc Manor, who lives in beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where she resides with her blue-eyed mini-Dachshund/Chihuahua named Bindi (which means “little girl” in several indigenous Australian dialects).
Ever since she was young, Lezli and her twin sister devoured books, often sharing their books to double their reading pool. That love blossomed into collecting signed first editions and centuries-old hardcovers of the classics, and hoarding vintage typewriters and chocolate in any form. After going on eBay to buy a signed Anne McCaffrey book, she met her future collaborator, Mike Resnick, who helped her discover that penning stories was even more thrilling than reading them.
