I know it’s a little early, but…. :)

Then again, it’s never too early for a Christmas story! And Charmin Marvin, delivers. Of course, you have to like a snarky walking talking feline with more attitude than most people. He’s a secondary character (and he’d take my head off for the diss) in all the Broken Protocols books. At least I named the series after him – Charmin Marvin Novella Series.

Broken Protocols 3.5 is my contribution to Romancing Christmas! This anthology is chock full of heartwarming stories to get you into the Christmas spirit.

Do you like your Christmas naughty or nice? Bring the season into your heart with love stories to match your mood. This boxed set from 10 of today’s hottest romance authors will warm your heart even on the coldest night.
