Exclusive bonus story, MISTLETOE RULES: learn how the Riley Family Mistletoe Rules all began one fateful Christmas, not too long ago…
Excerpt from MISTLETOE RULES:
“Why is a beautiful girl like you sitting all alone under the mistletoe?”
Sue startled at the deep voice from directly in front of her. She jerked her attention up—way up—to meet the smiling face of a guy maybe a couple years older than her.
“Alone?” he clarified, his eyebrows drawing together in a slight frown.
No, beautiful. Pretty maybe, but beautiful is pushing it.
Out loud she replied, “Sitting under mistletoe.”
His gaze rose to a point above her head, and in the dim light, she tried to decipher if his eyes were light blue or gray.
“I beg to differ.”
Sue twisted in her seat to look. Nothing—oh, wait, painted on the paper banner taped to the wall was a bundle of leaves that might pass for mistletoe. Her heart lurched for a moment, but she ignored the sensation and faced the guy again.
“All in the eye of the beholder.”
Tall, dark, and handsome immediately came to her mind’s eye looking at him. Unlike most of the other guys in their corduroy pants and wide-collared shirts, his black boots, faded jeans, and gray turtleneck sweater completed the attractive package before her.
He studied her for a moment. “So true.”
“Well, I don’t believe it is mistletoe.”
Feeling at a distinct disadvantage with him towering over her, Sue twisted her fingers in her gauzy, flower-print skirt. Standing seemed the obvious solution, but if she stood, they’d be much too close, and his self-assured stance warned her he wouldn’t back down.
“You know what they say about mistletoe, don’t you?” he asked.
“No, what do they say?”
He grinned, revealing white teeth and a very cute set of dimples. “It’s bad luck to refuse a kiss.”
“Good thing it’s not mistletoe, then.”
“You really want to take that chance?”

Mistletoe Mischief: Single parent, Marissa accompanies her daughter Heather on a last minute school trip to the zoo, which is celebrating “Christmas in July”. She is attracted to her daughter’s best friend, Reece’s father, but is not impressed with him for turning up late, thinking he is a typical father who is unreliable, undependable & uninterested in his daughter’s life. Eric thinks Marissa’s daft for wearing high heels on a trip, especially when she hurts her ankle. With a little help from Santa, Eric makes his move under the mistletoe...
This was my favourite story out of the four, although Eric & Marissa get together in the course of one day. It was nice, sweet & clean. I loved the two girls.
Mistletoe Magic: Eric’s older brother, Mark’s initial meeting with Janelle Walsh is not good: he frightens her ponies, nearly hurting her in the process. However the two of them can’t help the attraction between them. What happens when he inadvertently has her evicted, & her animal rescue centre closed down?
This is another story that involves Santa & mistletoe. Although I did like the two main characters, I felt it went too quickly: they barely spoke to each other when Mark moved in, yet she suddenly forgave him & realised that she was in love.This story contains one love scene.
Mistletoe Match-Up: Lisa comes home to attend her brother, Mark’s wedding. However she sets off on the wrong foot with the bride’s cousin, Derek, who is furious Lisa is trying to upstage Janelle. Lisa and Derek had a rivalry going all through high school, & it seems they pick up things where they left off. However, this time round the two of them are attracted to each other, although Lisa needs to face some demons.
I didn’t enjoy this story as the previous ones. The two main characters acted on their attractions & had sex with each other or used their sexual attraction to distract the other. Lisa was supposed to be strong & successful, but came across as unsure of herself.
Mistletoe Rules: This is where the “mistletoe rules that have featured in books 1-3 began. Ben & Sue meet at a party, but she’s engaged so Ben backs off. When Sue breaks off with her fiancé, having caught him with another woman, she goes in search of Ben, whom she barely knows (having only spent two hours together after he gave her a ride home.)
This was a nice backstory, but the initial meeting/ conversation between Ben & Sue was very similar to Eric & Marissa’s, & I was a little confused.
