No holiday is complete without a little magic…
Rafe and Miranda Castillo already had everything they wanted for Christmas...each other. But with the clan pushing for a “proper” wedding ceremony, what was supposed to be a quiet, romantic Christmas has quickly morphed into a whirlwind of frantic activity.
In between squeezing in a pre-holiday booking at the Cathedral in Santa Fe, searching for a wedding dress, and dealing with inter-clan etiquette, Rafe and Miranda manage to sneak in a few intimate moments.
But when Rafe’s cousin Sophia calls, he finds himself with an unexpected loose end to tie up. If it’s not properly sealed and locked away, it could come back to throw a shadow on the clan’s future….

About the Author
A native of Southern California, Christine Pope has been writing stories ever since she commandeered her family’s Smith-Corona typewriter back in the sixth grade. Her short fiction has appeared in Astonishing Adventures, Luna Station Quarterly, and the journal of dark fiction, Dark Valentine. Two of her short stories have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Christine Pope writes as the mood takes her, and her work includes paranormal romance, fantasy romance, and science fiction/space opera romance. She blames this on being easily distracted by bright, shiny objects, which could also account for the size of her shoe collection. After spending many years in the magazine publishing industry, she now works as a freelance editor and graphic designer in addition to writing fiction. She fell in love with Sedona, Arizona, while researching the Sedona Files series and now makes her home there, surrounded by the red rocks. No alien sightings, though...not yet, anyway!
