After years of being asked for recipes, Cheryl St.John spent a summer writing down ingredients and baking times, baking and asking for beta testers in order to put together this collection of mouthwatering recipes for Bundt cakes. 

Many of the recipes are labeled NO SKILL REQUIRED, indicating exceptional ease of preparation. If you don’t consider yourself a baker or if you’re an accomplished baker and simply want a quick recipe, you will find these cakes using box mixes are convenient and delicious. You don’t have to tell anyone you started with a mix—the cakes are so good that no one will guess preparation didn’t take hours. Bake with ease and enjoy serving a beautiful cake to family and friends. 

Cheryl's philosophy: Eat cake! It's someone's birthday somewhere

A Christmas Collection and a Giveaway! from Liz Flaherty

I love Christmas. A lot. A friend of mine collects Christmas snowmen and I teased her the other day about possibly attending meetings because of the depth of her addiction. But I understand. Because I’d be there to greet her when she got to the first meeting. Not that I collect snowmen. Exactly. But I do love me some ornaments. And trees. Cheryl, when are you going to start posting pictures of people’s Christmas trees again. (Said in a pathetic whine—could you hear it in my voice?)
[from Cheryl: Okay, you've twisted my arm. This year!]

So I was excited—to the point of jumping up and down excited, when the writers of last year’s Christmas, Actually invited me to contribute to A Heartwarming Christmas, a boxed set including four anthologies. Twelve Christmas stories in all. We are all Harlequin Heartwarming authors, so the stories are, you guessed it, Heartwarming. We had the best time writing them.

What? Oh, you want to know what that has to do with ornaments? Well, the anthology I share with Rula Sinara and Patricia Bradley (how did I get so lucky—they’re great!) is called The Gingerbread Men. We had a lot of hunger-inducing conversation reaching that title, believe me, and even more when we named our own stories. Writing my story, The Gingerbread Heart, also got me out there looking for gingerbread ornaments. Just as I feared, it’s a new addiction.

Since I like sharing and because I am so excited (I know, you get it already) I’m giving away a gingerbread ornament and a copy of a backlist book to one of Cheryl’s commenters who tells us about a favorite ornament. Thanks for coming by. Below are all the particulars on A Heartwarming Christmas. I hope that’s the kind of holidays you have!


This collection of PG-rated holiday romances are all set in Christmas Town, a location introduced in the 2014 Harlequin Heartwarming release Christmas, Actually. A Heartwarming Christmas will bring you laughter, tears, and happily-ever-afters (no cliffhangers), for more than 1200 pages. Foreword by small town lover and New York Times bestseller Kristan Higgins.
