Four heart-warming love stories to delight and enhance that holiday feeling. ''Countdown to Christmas...by Leta Nolan Childers'' In "Countdown to Christmas," Leta Nolan Childers creates the story of Dee Saunders, an out-of-luck executive forced by lay-offs to accept any job she can find--even if it means working as a reluctant Mrs. S. Claus--and that mysterious man of merriment--Santa Claus, who certainly hadn't planned on hoping to find Dee in his Christmas stocking. ''The Christmas Treasure...by Rickey R. Mallory'' Lorilla traveled the dangerous Santa Fe Trail on faith, to marry a stranger who wanted nothing from her but an heir. Gabriel had sworn to protect his heart at any cost, until he met a young woman who upset all his careful plans. In an untamed land, a broken-hearted man and a lonely, innocent young woman discover that the greatest treasure of all is love. ''Tarnished Angel...by Jane Toombs'' In Regency England, three couples are suffering a dismal Christmas. Thanks to the manipulations and maneuvers of others, none of the love-struck six are able to realize their dreams of wedded bliss with the ones to whom they are devoted. Yet, Christmas is a time of miracles...and with the intervention of a wooden, carved angel--which has definitely seen better days--perhaps the reunion and the redemption of those who come under its spell will find true happiness at last. ''Silver Bells, Wedding Bells...by Karen Wiesner'' Rudy Tadeus is getting married--to the wrong woman! Jayme Conrad, a reporter for an expose magazine, is impossibly clumsy and about to learn the benefits of thinking with the heart instead of with the head. Jayme stumbles to her best friend's rescue, determined to win back the only man she's ever loved.
