A coastal christmas

Author Kaya Quinsey returns with her trademark blend of romance and adventure, in this page turning story about a love to remember and a Christmas never to forget.


Successful broadcaster Jessica Beaton has it all: the perfect New York City apartment, high-flying career, and handsome boyfriend. And with Christmas around the corner, she has her sights set on one thing. A ring.


But Jessica is humiliated when her co-host and boyfriend, Brett Fanshaw, almost proposes to her on-air before backing out, leaving her dumped and embarrassed on national television. In the midst of her heartbreak, Jessica leaves to go home to Pebble Shores for the holidays for the first time in years.


While retreating at her family's seaside cottage to evaluate her life, Jessica finds herself butting heads with Dean Adams, the mayor of Pebble Shores, who isn't thrilled to have the media spotlight shed on their small town. Jessica couldn't imagine anyone being more of a Grinch.

Over the Christmas season, Jessica finds herself more enamored with life in Pebble Shores, the community spirit, and to her own surprise, Dean Adams. Can a small-town mayor and big-city broadcaster have the romance that Jessica always dreamed of?

Sample text:

“All right! Good morning everyone. I hope you’re all having as good of a morning as we are here at…” Jessica started. She paused, waiting for Brett to join her in their usual routine where they said, ‘Wake Up Manhattan’ together. “…here at… Wake Up Manhattan!” she finished alone in a sing-songy voice. Jessica flashed the camera a smile before she darted a quick glance at Brett, who was still sitting stiff as a brick beside her. “Now, I hope I’m the first to say it to you all out there… Happy December!” A Christmas jingle played over the loudspeakers and Jessica danced in her seat, bumping elbows with the C.E.O. of the animal shelter who looked like he was enjoying every moment of it. “And boy, is it ever my favorite time of year. The warmth, the cheer, the family, and most importantly, it’s a time where we can focus on others. A time for giving,” she said, nodding gravely. “Here today, we have…” Jessica turned her head towards the C.E.O. of the shelter, only to be distracted by Brett standing up beside her.
