Miranda Liasson returns to the blog with the third book in her Angel Falls series, set during Christmas and featuring two high school sweethearts now all grown up in
All I Want for Christmas is You
When you are faced with your long-time crush, and are best friends with his sisters, there’s nothing more difficult that turning the corner from ‘easy going best friends’ to lovers. And when you add in one night of passion at his sister’s wedding – things get horribly complicated. Add in a seventeen year old niece who is, difficult at best, and working to keep your little bakery successful while trying to find a long-lost recipe that could win you a contest, and Kaitlyn has her hands more than full. Or so she thought. Until the stripe turned blue, and that one night with Rafe becomes a huge issue.
Rafe has returned home and made a name for himself as a playboy. After losing his first love, he’s determined that he’ll never have another relationship, or anyone other than family and the guys at the firehouse to rely on him. He thinks he is broken, and doesn’t want to chance the hurt again. But with Kaitlyn, he’s found that he wants more – the problem is that she doesn’t believe it – and won’t give him a chance. Until his grandmother forces their togetherness, with a dash of help from the universe and asbestos, and the two find themselves actually talking and maybe even moving forward in a relationship that isn’t simply friendship.
This book had it all – the skittish hero and heroine, plenty of family input to push and pull buttons, the holidays and an adorable puppy that needs a home and lots of love, just like Rafe and Kaitlyn. When you add in a whole town determined to see Kaitlyn succeed, plenty of danger in Rafe’s job as a firefighter, lots of ‘family’ moments and cheer for the holiday and a wonderful series of “oh I want to taste that” cookies, all under the watchful eyes of the angels at the falls – and the story won’t miss a tug at your happy place.

The award-winning author who writes with “humor and heart” (Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author) invites you to visit the charming small town of Angel Falls.
Being naughty was nice, but now these friends-turned-lovers are in for an unforgettable Christmas…
Just when Kaitlyn Barnes vows to get over her longtime crush on Rafe Langdon, they share a sizzling evening that delivers an epic holiday surprise: Kaitlyn is pregnant. And if that weren’t life-changing enough, everyone assumes they’re engaged — a charade they must keep alive through the holiday season. But Kaitlyn knows Rafe better than anyone, and Rafe settling down is about as likely as Santa skipping Angel Falls this year…
Rafe would rather Kaitlyn believe a lie — that their night together was a fling — than face his own dangerous truth: he’s falling for her, hard. After a devastating loss, Rafe swore he’d never risk his heart again. Yet the longer they pretend to be engaged the more Rafe starts to want the real thing. But now he has to convince Kaitlyn he wants to be by her side — and their baby’s — for all the Christmases to come.
Includes the bonus novel Christmas on Mistletoe Lane by Annie Rains!
