Under the mistletoe with your mister or miss, make a wish then seal it with a kiss...
Amaya Montero has a beautiful son, a lovely home, and is married to the love of her life. What she doesn't have is her husband's heart. After a brief summer romance resulted in their son, Cristian did the honorable thing and married her. But Amaya is tired of being his obligation. She wants him to love her the way she deserves -- wholly and passionately. Is that a wish too much for the mistletoe to handle?
Cristian isn't a sentimental man but he takes care of the people he loves. Though unexpected pregnancy changed his future, he loves the life he has now. Which is why he's surprised when Amaya announces she's leaving him. He hadn't realized how much he'd been taking his wife for granted. Now he must prove to her that he can love her the way she needs and that she has always held his heart.
For twelve days, Cristian woos Amaya with gifts to show his love truly is real and deep. But just as the ice around her heart begins to thaw, a figure from their past returns and threatens the delicate bond being rebuilt between husband and wife.
Will Amaya's mistletoe wish melt away? Or will the magic of the season help her and Cristian find their way back to one another?

But one night mired in drugs, alcohol, and a fatal tragedy cost him his girlfriend and his band, The Drunken Poseidons, everything they'd worked for. Blacklisted by the owner of their record label, they've resigned themselves to mediocre success for the past six years, growing restless with each local gig they play.
Then she walks in — Miri Lawson. Part savior/part siren, she offers the band a chance at a comeback and JC a shot at redemption. Her innocent appearance hides a seductress JC can't resist taking to bed; her steadfast belief in him has him rethinking his vow to never love again. But there's a hitch — her father is the one who blacklisted them and her sister is the woman he failed all those years ago.
It's a bad idea to get involved with Miri professionally. An even worse idea to make it personal. JC has everything Miri wants, and she has everything he needs, but falling in love could ruin both their lives. Can their relationship top the charts or is it destined to be a one-hit wonder?
