Twilight Before Christmas by Christine Feehan

Seven sisters…and a legacy of magical secrets.
Bestselling novelist Kate Drake is one of seven sisters gifted with amazing powers of witchcraft. Returning home in time for her northern California town’s annual Christmas pageant, Kate catches the spirit of the season and decides to open a bookstore in a charming but run-down historic mill. Decorated former U.S. Army Ranger Matt Granite, now a local contractor, doesn’t mind working in the undeniably eerie house — not if it means getting closer to Kate. There’s something about the quiet, sensual woman that powerfully attracts him.
When an earthquake cracks the mill’s foundation and reveals a burial crypt, Kate senses that a centuries-old evil has been unleashed and that it’s coming after her. Though Matt vows to guard her from dusk till dawn, Kate knows she will have to summon all of her and her sisters’ powers to battle the darkness threatening to destroy both Christmas and the gift of soul-searing passion her hometown hero wants her to keep forever….

This book is not a new book but one of my absolute fav reads to reread. Book 2 in the series of 7 sisters (the first one is good just not one I have reread) Matt and Kate take you on a journey of new love, intrigue, and a trip to shadow worlds in a battle of redemption and forgiveness.

Once you pick up these sisters you will not be able to put them down!

A Very Outlaw Christmas by T. S. Joyce

Outlaw grizzly shifter, Trigger Massey, has been on the naughty list most of his life, but things are different now. He’s got a new mate, is in a race to save his ranch, and is the brand-new alpha of the Two Claws Clan. Add to that, his mate, Ava, has a serious problem with Christmas, and Trigger has his work cut out for him. This is his first Christmas as leader of his Clan, and he’s taken it as a personal challenge to make it perfect. The only problem? Ava never wanted perfect.

Ava Dorset just needs to get through December, set up her business, save the ranch, and be the best mate she can be to Trigger. He’s a big brawler, who raises his fists first and asks questions later. They’re fresh out of a war with the local cougar clan and looking to stay on the straight-and-narrow until she can get their business off the ground, but the boys find trouble wherever they go and they’re demolishing her plans. All she needs to do is get their focus off the holiday, and back on saving the ranch, but the more Trigger works to get her holiday spirit back, the more she thinks perhaps December isn’t so bad.

Let me start off by saying, this book didn’t feel like a Ts book. It seemed rushed and unfocused. I did not even finish it. I am disappointed 😔

⭐️⭐️ for me.

Christmas Picture

Nativity….How many of us see this when we think of the Christmas birth? As I sat in church yesterday the preacher said something that I had heard a million time but the Lord opened my eyes to a picture i had yet to think about.

The stable much like the world was dirty, filthy and smelled. (Can you imagine being a NEW mom and thinkin that you were goin to have to deliver a child into all of that disease) God choose to give us His Son in the worst possible conditions because before Christ enters our life we are our worst possible selfs. He reminded me once again that without Him we are nothing but a dirty filthy stable but with Him we are children of The King!

No one is not worthy of the love Jesus has for us! You were so loved that God parted with his son, so that He could come into a filthy world to save someone even as low as me.

What a Christmas picture! So raise your head son and daughters to the king you are worthy of more than what this life has to offer you.
