From USA Today Bestselling Author Magdalena Scott...
They want to escape their little hometown forever, even if that means giving up on love.

1975: Dorothy Robbins is working hard to build up her Leaving Legend Fund. But she's waitressing at Jim Bob's Saloon, where the only thing worse than the tips are the songs on the jukebox.

Charles McClain is back in town--just for the holidays. He's a different person than he was when he moved away, and the family has changed while he was gone. He doesn't belong in Legend anymore.

But it's Christmas... The air is cold, hearts are warm, and mistletoe is overhead when you least expect it. And sometimes the path that led you away can also lead you home.

Spend your holiday in Legend with this series prequel, and discover that love is sweeter, and hot cocoa tastes better, in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains!

THE McCLAINS OF LEGEND, TENNESSEE SWEET ROMANCE SERIES:
Take a mini vacation from the hurry and worry of everyday life. Visit Legend, Tennessee, a big-hearted community with small town charm, in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.

The McClains of Legend, Tennessee is a contemporary romance series, providing wholesome, heartwarming romance books for anyone who loves a happily-ever-after. Readers enjoy becoming immersed in the lives and loves of the large, sometimes exasperating, and always entertaining McClain family, to whom Legend has been home for generations.

Themes in this clean romance series include second chances at romance, widow romance, family values, small town life, and celebrations of small town Christmas present, and Christmas past.

The McClain family romance books include romance novels, novellas, and a romantic short story (Christmas Charm). In lieu of small town billionaires, the heroes and heroines are people you might really find in a small town: artists, building contractors, real estate agents, lawyers, auto mechanics, bankers, a pharmacist, a plumber, newspaper editor, school teachers, funeral directors, dentists, and shop owners.

Readers have said they'd like to move to the fictional town of Legend, Tennessee. Perhaps their strong positive reaction to the town is because it's so believable, while still providing that always-required happy ending.

Midnight in Legend, TN
Christmas Collision
Where Her Heart Is
Building a Dream
Second Chances

A uniquely Australian anthology of short stories, visually, culturally and linguistically evocative of that country (and continent), the unsurprisingly named 'Long and Short Australian Stories' is incredibly readable and relatable, with the sort of easy-going narrative fluency that makes each story a thoroughly enchanting page-turner.

Though always from her perch on the Aussie shoreline, Sharp explores all the universal themes that define stories of romance and relationships: jealousy, ambition, empathy, love and self-actualization.

Backdrops include beaches, cottages and city apartments, the urban and the rural: a multifaceted scenic tour that enhances the feel of the various narratives... long and short. This is a book for fans of literary fiction and romance, but suitable also for a YA audience.

As are all of Margaret Lynette Sharp's books, this is one is edited by her husband Ronald Sharp B.E.M., the creator of the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall's Grand Organ.
