Well past the marriageable age, she’s taken a position as a companion and is now stuck in Scotland for Christmas, alone even in the middle of the boisterous MacTaggert family.

Christmas at Dewberry Hollow by Amelia Grey Miss Isabelle Reed has no plans to ever fall in love. She has a perfectly acceptable life with her mother at the Dewberry Hollow Inn, thank you very much. But when Gate, the Duke of Notsgrave’s grandson, appears at Dewberry Hollow searching for a carving on a tree, Isabelle cannot help but get involved. But Gate’s charm and their instant attraction makes Isabelle question if she’s willing to take her chance at love once again.

Download PDF Under the Mistletoe Book by Rohit Bhatia Full eBook and published by The Little Booktique Hub. This book was released on with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Kissing under the mistletoe is all over modern culture, from Harry Potter's first kiss to Justin Bieber's holiday song. Kissing under the mistletoe, a plant that yields white berries can be linked back to a Norse mythology story about the god Baldur. Baldur's mother, Frigg, uses strong magic to ensure that no plant cultivated on Earth can be used as a weapon against her son in the story. Mistletoe is the only plant that is not affected by the spell since it grows on tree branches rather than on the ground. When Loki realizes this, he concocts a mistletoe spear, the weapon that will finally murder Baldur. After her son's death, Frigg declares the mistletoe a sign of love and vows to kiss everybody who passes beneath it, according to numerous versions. “Under the Mistletoe” is a book contributed by 35 authors from the globe who have interpreted the title on their own and have written a piece based on various themes.

Download PDF The Science of Kissing Book by Sheril Kirshenbaum Full eBook and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2011-01-05 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From a noted science journalist comes a wonderfully witty and fascinating exploration of how and why we kiss. When did humans begin to kiss? Why is kissing integral to some cultures and alien to others? Do good kissers make the best lovers? And is that expensive lip-plumping gloss worth it? Sheril Kirshenbaum, a biologist and science journalist, tackles these questions and more in The Science of a Kiss. It's everything you always wanted to know about kissing but either haven't asked, couldn't find out, or didn't realize you should understand. The book is informed by the latest studies and theories, but Kirshenbaum's engaging voice gives the information a light touch. Topics range from the kind of kissing men like to do (as distinct from women) to what animals can teach us about the kiss to whether or not the true art of kissing was lost sometime in the Dark Ages. Drawing upon classical history, evolutionary biology, psychology, popular culture, and more, Kirshenbaum's winning book will appeal to romantics and armchair scientists alike.

Book excerpt: Calling All Couples! Sign up now. Help us set a record! On December 10 at 5:00 pm, we need your help setting a Guinness World Record for the most couples kissing under the mistletoe! Chase Spencer had been firmly planted in the friend-zone ever since he first met Rachel Anthony back when they were in grade school and it looks like that’s where he’s destined to remain. And her latest scheme is bound to be torture. She wants them to help break the Guinness World Record for the most couples kissing under the mistletoe at one time. How should he handle this? Should the kiss be a chaste, friendly kiss like she envisions? Or should he do it in a way that leaves Rachel without a doubt that he wants to be more than friends? It had always been Rachel’s dream to break a world record, and who better to do it with than her best friend Chase? And it wasn’t as if they hadn’t kissed before—sixth grade, spin-the-bottle at Iona Puckett’s party—a peck of the lips and it’d be over. Except she missed the part where they had to hold the kiss for ten seconds. And no one warned her of how she would feel afterwards—confused and longing for more. How can she convince Chase to change her status from friend to girlfriend?
