The Addictive Reads Winter Gift Collection is a selection of seven uplifting short stories and novellas written by the award-winning and best-selling authors of the Addictive Reads cooperative to brighten those cold winter days. Each story will take around an hour to read, perfect for those small bits of down-time when you need to de-stress around the hectic holiday season. In these pages you will find tales of second chances, holidays spent with family, and a dash of romance. Each submission is a complete story, with no rude cliff-hangers or additional reading necessary, although some of them tie in to existing book series.Jade O'Reilly and the 12 Days of Christmas - by Amazon and B&N best-selling authorTamara Ward. For the 12 days leading up to Christmas, the crankiest old biddy in Sweetwater wakes up to a yard filled with Christmas decorations.

And if so, can a loser win for losing? Rated G.Mistletoe Mischief - by New York Times & USA Today best-selling author Stacey Joy Netzel - Christmas in July at the zoo is the last place single parents Eric Riley and Marissa Wilder expect to find love.

Rated G.Snow Dance - by USA Today Best-Selling Authors Alicia & Roy Street, winners of the Daphne du Maurier Award.

Rated PG-13.A Gothic Christmas Angel - Winner of the 2014 eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBooks Award for Best Novella - by Anna Erishkigal - Dumped by her boyfriend on Christmas Eve, Cassie Baruch thought her pain would end when she aimed her car at an ancient beech tree.
