Get Snowbound With This Winter Romance Book By @BarbaraWDaille

Thanks to Barbara White Daille for joining us today with this special guest post. Ironically, Barbara writes a romance series called Snowflake Valley, which is the perfect setting for winter vacation fun. It’s ironic as I write a romance series called Storybook Valley, set in a fairy tale theme park. As a result. my setting lends itself to summer vacation fun. I hope you enjoy reading more about Barbara’s series below. Her novel Snowbound with Mr. Wrong, the first Snowflake Valley book, is sale-priced at 99 cents during November. And ironically so is Fooling Around With Cinderella, the first book in my Storybook Valley series!

Now that Halloween is over and there’s a chill in the air, my thoughts are already turning to Christmas. A while back when I began plotting a Christmas series of sweet romances, I envisioned them taking place in a very special setting filled with very special people—and that’s how the town of Snowflake Valley was born. The winter months are always extra-busy for the residents of Snowflake Valley, Nevada, a tiny working-class town nestled in the cleft between two tourist-infested mountains. This year is even more extraordinary because love is in the air for the three “bad luck” Barnett sisters—whether they like the idea or not. 🙂

Snowflake Valley caters to tourists 365 days a year, and the entire town is dedicated to Christmas. I’ve written two books set here so far, and I have to tell you, immersing myself in this town and getting to know its residents has been so much fun.  Here are a couple of peeks at the book.

Worst. Day. Ever. After Lyssa Barnett’s sister tricks her into reprising her role at Snowflake Valley’s annual children’s party, she doesn’t think anything can be worse than squeezing into her too-small elf costume. Then tall, dark, and way too handsome Nick Tavlock shows up to play Santa…and an unexpected storm leaves them snowbound in the isolated lodge.

The last thing Nick wants is to spend a cozy Christmas Eve with a trio of kids and the woman who dumped him. But as much as Lyssa frustrates him, he can’t stop thinking about her. And soon, he’s fighting very un-Santa-like thoughts of kissing a certain sexy Miss Elf under the mistletoe. As Nick starts to fall for Lyssa all over again, he knows it will take nothing short of a miracle to have Lyssa in his arms on Christmas Day.


Lyssa plopped the large bowl of popcorn in the middle of the coffee table and distributed the thread and needles she had found in the linen closet upstairs. At this rate, she would have to make a list of items to replace for Amber.

Mollie and Tommy went to work enthusiastically, and even Brent pitched in without a word of complaint. It was watching Nick, though, that made her heart melt. Making Christmas decorations might not have been his “thing,” but he definitely had some skill at working with kids.

He helped Tommy thread a needle, guiding the little boy’s hand until he had slipped the thread through the needle’s eye. Flushed by his success, Tommy proudly insisted upon threading everyone’s needle himself.

When Mollie groaned in frustration after trying to add a half-dozen kernels to her thread, Nick showed her how to pierce the thickest part of the popped corn to prevent it from breaking.

And when it came time to drape the strands on the tree, he asked Brent’s opinion as to the best placement. She had never heard the quiet teen talk and laugh as much as he had in this short time.

She could so easily see Nick with children of his own…and hers… But she had already decided there was no point in dreaming about a future with him. Considering his single-minded focus on work, he could never be the man for her.

She got to her feet and, forcing a smile, said, “I think it’s time for some hot chocolate.”

Four voices rose in agreement, and she escaped gratefully to the kitchen. The more she saw of Nick connecting with the kids, the harder it was for her to watch and the more she wanted to stay away. Yet she knew this trip to the kitchen was only a temporary reprieve.

She just hadn’t realized how temporary.

She had barely started heating the milk in a pan on the stove when Nick entered the kitchen. He came to lean against the counter beside her. “Need something?” she asked brightly.

“Yeah. To tell you I forgot how much fun it is being around you. It’s been a great afternoon.”

She flushed. “No thanks to me. That’s all on the kids. They’re quite a bunch.”

“And you’re quite a woman.”

“No, I’m—”

He reached up and touched his finger to her lips. “Don’t do that, Lyssa. Don’t sell yourself short.” He moved his hand to trace her chin. A shiver tickled along her jaw. “You know what else I need?”

“Hot chocolate?”

“That, too. And this.”

He leaned down and brushed his mouth against hers. He tasted so like the man she had fallen for months ago. His kiss was so tender, so sweet, she couldn’t help but want more.

Another thought hovered at the edges of her mind, a thought she felt sure she didn’t want to know. Not now. Not here. Not when his taste and his touch and his total concentration on her were all exactly what she needed.
