Just in time for the holiday season, three of romanceís brightest lights team up for a sparkling anthology. Santa Baby offers readers stories from Jennifer Crusie, Lori Foster and Carly Phillips that are sure to tickle your funny bone, and warm your heart.

Jennifer Crusie kicks off the trilogy with Hot Toy. Trudy Maxwell is determined to give her nephew the toy he wants this year. Facing his parents divorce is hard on any child, especially at the holidays. That is why Trudy is checking every shelf looking for a Major MacGuffin toy, complete with toxic waste. She cannot believe that she is face-to-face with loser blind-date Nolan Mitchell, who never called her back. He may be a hunky college professor, but Trudy has her pride. Besides, why is he so interested in her toy shopping?

Eric Bragg hears the tapping of Maggie Carmichaelís heels before she ever reaches his office. He used to welcome her visits when her father ran the company, but now that she is his boss, he dreads their encounters. He can barely contain his feelings, which are now completely inappropriate. Maggie has also become distant lately, and he misses their friendship. Author Lori Foster puts a new spin on Christmas Bonus with this tender story.

Author Carly Phillips starts Naughty Under the Mistletoe with a case of mistaken identity. Attorney Antonia Larson thinks she has her co-worker under the holiday greenery, but one kiss tells her that she is mistaken. Stephanís renegade twin, Maxwell, has joined the party at his ailing fatherís request. He never expects to have a mistletoe moment with an intriguing elf. If he decides to rejoin the law firm, he hopes that seeing more of Ms. Larson will be part of the perks.

This lighthearted anthology is perfect for holiday reading. After a round of parties or shopping, it will be just what you need.
