Fate had thrown them together in the season of miracles—was it too late to wish for the miracle of love? Just for Kids: A day-care center where love abounds…and families are made!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes a new story by Christina Skye Beloved author Debbie Macomber celebrates the most wonderful time of the year in this heartwarming Christmas novel of romance, hope, and the comforts of home—now a Hallmark Channel original movie! Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four-year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track—and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Posing as a teacher at a local college in Tacoma, Washington, Harry is up to the task, but not even he can predict the surprises that lay in store. After trying to make it on her own, Addie has returned home to Tacoma for the holidays, but this time she plans to stay for good, enrolling in the local community college to earn her degree. What she doesn’t plan to do is run into Erich Simmons. Addie and her next-door neighbor, Erich, are like night and day. Growing up, he was popular and outgoing while she was rebellious and headstrong, and he never missed an opportunity to tease her. Now she intends to avoid him entirely, yet when they’re suddenly forced to spend Christmas together, Addie braces for trouble. Perhaps it’s the spirit of the season or the magic of mistletoe, but Addie and Erich soon find they have more in common than they thought—and that two people who seem so wrong for each other may actually be just right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they’ll never forget. Praise for Mr. Miracle “Macomber’s Christmas novels are always something to cherish. Mr. Miracle is a sweet and innocent story that will lift your spirits during the holidays and throughout the year. Celebrating the comforts of home, family traditions, forgiveness and love, this is the perfect, quick Christmas read.”—RT Book Reviews “[Macomber] writes about romance, family and friendship with a gentle, humorous touch.”—Tampa Bay Times “Macomber spins another sweet, warmhearted holiday tale that will be as comforting to her fans as hot chocolate on Christmas morning.”—Kirkus Reviews “This gentle, inspiring romance will be a sought-after read.”—Library Journal “Macomber cheerfully presents a holiday story that combines the winsomeness of a visiting angel (similar to Clarence from It’s a Wonderful Life) with the more poignant soulfulness of A Christmas Carol to bring to life a memorable reading experience.”—Bookreporter “Macomber’s name is almost as closely linked to Christmas reading as that of Charles Dickens. . . . [Mr. Miracle] has enough sweetness, charm, and seasonal sentiment to make Macomber fans happy.”—The Romance Dish

FOREVER ... CHRISTMAS SOMETIMES IT TAKES TIME TO FALL IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT My name is Katie and I couldn’t have imagined a better setting for a romantic encounter other than Christmas Eve. The only problem is that Alex isn’t exactly my ideal man and he doesn’t seem to have fallen for my charms either. He's insisted, right from the start, that he is absolutely not interested in dating me. At least we can agree on one thing. But when each Christmas he whisks me away into a romantic story filled with snowflakes, laughter and unforgettable memories, I start to wonder if maybe I judged him too quickly. After all, he brings so much enchantment into my life and makes my heart beat faster than anyone else can. The only small obstacle standing in the way: he’s not in love with me. Can I count on the magic of Christmas to make a miracle happen? EXCERPT 1 I make a sudden movement and both of us fall. He laughs, but gets worried when he sees me all tangled up in the covers and unresponsive.‬‬‬‬ “Katie?” “Everything but my pride is okay.”‬‬ He helps me up and throws me on the bed.‬‬‬ “All this to avoid kissing me?”‬‬‬ “What? No!” I protest, blushing.‬‬‬ He gives me a disbelieving look.‬‬‬ “You think I don’t know what’s going through your head?”‬‬ “What?” I urge him on.‬ “Oh my God, how could I resist his beautiful eyes, his luscious lips, his soft hands and his killer smile?” he says with a mischievous look that makes me laugh. “What? That’s not at all what I’m thinking.”‬‬‬ “Too bad, because I am.”‬‬‬ He looks at me affectionately.‬‬‬ “Come on, stand up.”‬‬ How can he flirt with me and appear so detached at the same time? This is clearly not a good sign for me. I must not be that irresistible after all.‬‬ EXCERPT 2 ‪I get up and start doing a little dance step. When Alex suddenly grabs me like a sack of potatoes and takes me out of the living room, I don’t realize what he wants to do. “You beat me, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get a reward. I know you and my Dad cheated. You want me to turn back into the Alex that you know? Here he is.” He throws a snowball at me. ‪Christine joins us and I ask for help. The battle grows. Fortunately, these two also have some scores to settle, and I can rest a bit. Except that when Alex notices that I’m not playing any more, he bombards me. ‪“Stop,” I beg him as if I can’t take it anymore. Christine gets worried and asks him to leave me alone. “Oh no, you’re not really gonna fall for that are you?” Alex says and comes over to me. “Stop! Really?” ‪“Okay, okay, I’m playing.” ‪Our eyes meet, and we remain still for a few seconds. “You guys can say what you want, but if in this moment you don’t want to kiss, I know nothing at all.” ‪It’s a good thing Christine said something because it’s enough to break the spell. What’s going on with us? I know we’ve already kissed, but it was years ago. Since then nothing has happened between us. ‪“You think you know everything?” ‪Alex grabs Christine and shoves some snow down her neck. ‪“I hate you,” she cries. Forever ...

Anyone who laments the excesses of Christmas might consider the Puritans of colonial Massachusetts: they simply outlawed the holiday. The Puritans had their reasons, since Christmas was once an occasion for drunkenness and riot, when poor "wassailers extorted food and drink from the well-to-do. In this intriguing and innovative work of social history, Stephen Nissenbaum rediscovers Christmas's carnival origins and shows how it was transformed, during the nineteenth century, into a festival of domesticity and consumerism. Drawing on a wealth of period documents and illustrations, Nissenbaum charts the invention of our current Yuletide traditions, from St. Nicholas to the Christmas tree and, perhaps most radically, the practice of giving gifts to children. Bursting with detail, filled with subversive readings of such seasonal classics as "A Visit from St. Nicholas” and A Christmas Carol, The Battle for Christmas captures the glorious strangeness of the past even as it helps us better understand our present.

Ethshar? Some readers already recognize the name, but if you aren’t one of them, perhaps a brief explanation is in order. “Ethshar” is the invented world that has been the setting for almost a dozen novels from the pen of Lawrence Watt-Evans. Its inhabitants don’t call it that; they call it “the World.” For readers, though, that’s not specific enough. The dominant nation on the World is the Hegemony of the Three Ethshars, while the largest, richest city, where most of the stories are set, is Ethshar of the Spices, so “Ethshar” is close enough. The name itself comes from words meaning “safe harbor.” You don’t need to have read any of the novels to enjoy the stories herein; each one should stand alone. And if you've read the novels, you will enjoy this return to the world of Ethshar with 11 stories... This is the first time they have all been collected in one book!
