Excerpt

from A Witch for Christmas by Barb DeLong

“I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since you were cursed. I wish I could have found you a true love,” Sam said, creating a cloud of soap bubbles as she scrubbed her hands.

“Don’t forget the ‘true love of heart, soul and mind’ part,” said Abby as she twisted the cork free of the bottle of cabernet.

“I’m trying, but the search might be easier if we had the whole male population to choose from and not just the witches. If only there were a witchmatch dot com, but we’re such a secretive lot.” Sam made a rude sound. “We need more time than this Christmas Eve, Abby. Damn that Hilda Grimm. I’d like to curse her to the devil’s pit.”

“Well, we can’t.” Abby topped off two glasses with the ruby liquid and handed one to her friend. “Both of us together aren’t powerful enough to create a wart on the nose of a sorceress like her.”

“She already has one, anyway.”

About the Authors


Jill Jaynes began her love affair with romance when she was a teenager growing up in Southern California, spending many a late-night under the covers with a flashlight and good romance novel.  This early addiction stuck, and she discovered one day that telling great stories was even more fun than reading them.

When she’s not writing, you can find her a) wine-tasting, hiking or otherwise hanging out with her awesome husband, b) walking her two high-maintenance dogs, c) plotting her next story with her writer-daughter or d) working at her day job in her spare time.




Barb DeLong has always had a passion for reading and writing. She has won and been a finalist in several writing contests. Animals are another passion, and creatures both wild and domestic are featured in most of her stories of love, laughter and magic. Barb contributed contemporary romance stories in Romancing the Pages and Secrets of Moonlight Cove anthologies. A transplant from Canada, she enjoys the sunny climes of Southern California with her one-and-forever hubby and a fluffy, blue-eyed ragdoll cat, two children and five grandchildren.


Kathleen Harrington, multi-published, award-winning author, has touched the hearts of readers across the country and the world with her sparkling tales of high adventure and unending love. Her historical romances have been published in Chinese, Russian, Italian, and German. She lives in Southern California with her American Bulldog, Auron.







When Ottilia Scherschel, a Hungarian immigrant, started sixth grade, she learned her fifth language. After retiring from teaching languages at the college level, she spends her time writing romantic suspense stories set in foreign climes. She has been a finalist in a number of writing contests and published a short story in the Romancing the Pages anthology. Ottilia loves to pack a suitcase to visit family, friends and food or wine purveyors anywhere in the world. When she is not writing, she can be found at the movies, at the gym, or cooking for her husband, kids and grandkids.





Angela Shelley was born in Vancouver, Canada in 1973 and grew up in rural Southern British Columbia. Her love for children's fantasy stems from reading CS Lewis, Tolkien, George MacDonald, JK Rowling, Terry Brooks, Neil Gaiman, and many, many more wonderful authors. She lives in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and their twins.
