When Val Welles returns to Verona Lake after ten years away, it’s only because her life is in tatters and she has nowhere else to go. Her plan is to get her life together, then leave town as soon as possible. This place holds too many painful reminders of the past—including “Mac” McIntyre, the man she once loved and left behind.
She certainly never expected me—Oscar the cat—to pop up at her window one night, yowling to be let in. It’s supposed to be a temporary arrangement, but the longer I stay, the more I realize she still loves Mac. From the looks Mac gives her, I can tell he wants her, too. They’re meant to be together, and that’s not going to happen without my help.
But I have a problem. I’m leading a double life. At night, I stay with Val. During the day I visit my friend Mr. G, who’s moved into a retirement home—where cats aren’t allowed. I want to help all my friends, but I need a place to belong. As Val, Mac, and Mr. G move on with their lives, will they still have room for me?
These two pets just made the naughty list—and Santa doesn’t play!
Streetwise feline Catso and pampered pup Cuddles can’t stand each other. When their feud at the local animal shelter’s holiday fundraiser ruins the chances for dozens of homeless animals, Santa Claus is very disappointed.
Still, he’s willing to give this cat and dog another chance. With his Christmas Magic, Santa rolls back the clock and offers them a do-over—but he never told them they’d switch places!
Now Catso finds himself in the silly pooch’s body, dealing with a baby-talking owner, an unhappy young girl, and drama at Doggie Day Care. Cuddles, who’s always been cared for, must live as a street cat, fending for herself with only a grumpy old man for company.
To return to their own bodies, Cuddles and Catso must make sure the shelter’s event runs smoothly this time around. If they succeed, they’ll help the animals, make Santa happy, and maybe even bring some Christmas Magic into the lives of people who need it most.

Don't Let Go:
It began twelve years ago, with a kiss on the doorstep. Now he’s back to win the woman he loves.
When Eric Sorenson's date dumped him right before the Senior Prom, his older sister’s best friend stepped in to save him from total humiliation. He never forgot Annalee or what she did for him that night…or the kiss they shared.
After a messy divorce, Annalee's not looking forward to her high school reunion. She's shocked when Eric appears at her door ready to return the favor and play escort. Gone is the inexperienced boy with a severe stutter—he's a striking, confident man. The memory of the kiss they shared rekindles an attraction that never died. But her heart’s been bruised and she’s reluctant to risk it again.
That’s not stopping Eric. He lost Annalee once. This time, he won't let go.
