Two Novellas: Christmas 1968 and Christmas 1969
Christmas 1968: A Groovy Christmas
In the spring Kathleen Fields will graduate from college. By New Year’s Eve, she expects a proposal from her longtime beau. It’s 1968 and women are burning bras and freely making love. Before settling down to a boring life in boring Legend, Tennessee, Kathleen wants to experience a little of the excitement of her peers. And more than anything, she wants to do something about being a virgin.
Hippie and political activist Grant Winchester has received his draft notice. Uncertain about dodging the draft, he stops in Legend to visit his aunt before the holidays. Not finding her at home, Grant rediscovers his high school sweetheart and his plans take an unexpected turn.
Like the Hatfield’s and the McCoy’s, Kathleen and Grant’s families have been feuding for decades. Plus Kathleen is not so sure she approves of his decision to go to Canada. Yet Grant is a likely candidate to help her solve her problem. Kathleen risks her future only to discover that free sex is not so free, and sometimes the man of your dreams comes into your life when you least expect it.
Christmas 1969: Not Quite Christmas
Accountant Frank Smith doesn’t want to go home for Christmas, not after he was dumped by his long-time girlfriend on Christmas Day a year ago. Avoiding Legend, Tennessee, is high on his priority list until he meets his mother’s houseguest—hippie chick Emmy Johnson, a girl with a past . . . . and maybe Frank’s future.

“A Groovy Christmas is a heartwarming Christmas tale like no other. It’s a story of two teenage sweethearts, Kathleen and Grant meeting again after years apart. It is the perfect happy ever after, love story, with just the right amount of holiday cheer.”—Reviewer: Marissa
The sensuality of the story was delicately told. I couldn’t put the book down—it’s definitely a page-turner. I recommend you read the book. You will not be sorry.41/2 heart review at The Romance Studio!
