Navidad de los Suenos by Kristin Billerbeck sweeps you into California's historical land of ranchos and sword fights as Isabella Arguello is being forced to marry a despicable man. Her only source of hope is prayer and the counsel of an old circuit-riding preacher. But when Pastor Juan Carlos Vega comes in the place of the old man, it is love at first sight. Isabella would follow the handsome preacher anywhere, but Juan Carlos reminds her of the commandment to honor one's father and he leaves. What is a sad girl to do?

Dreams by Peggy Darty introduces you to Caroline Cushman, the first resident of Pine Ridge, Alabama, to attend college. Her simple country manners stand out among the students of Davis University, attracting the attention of Ryan Blankenship and the scorn of Amelia Gardner. Caroline's only dream is to return to Pine Ridge with an education for teaching, but Ryan has dreams that will stir the Christmas punch.
