Overview

Rory Woodward thought he would never set foot in Eagle River again. He left years ago to get away from his family, the Redstones. Now, with word that his grandmother is dying, he must leave his peaceful life as an author in San Francisco to come home and pay his respects. To do so, though, he must confront an overbearing mother, a viciously greedy sister, and the rest of his kin, who are all eager to take the Redstone reputation for benevolence and shove it in the coffin with matriarch Winifred Redstone.

Staber Montana never enjoyed the life of leisure the Redstones have. He has spent most of his life fending for himself while dealing with his drug-abusing, overpossessive mother and alcoholic brother. He has never kept a healthy relationship because his mother would scare away potential mates. More than anything, he wishes he could escape his life.

Rory and Staber may come from two different lives and backgrounds while growing up in the same town, but their paths are about to cross at the most wonderful time of the year. They find themselves drawing closer, but they need to find a way to keep their overwhelming pasts at bay long enough to see if they can create their own Merry Christmas, perhaps the first of many.

Meet the Author

Born in the heat of Arizona, author Lee Pulaski now calls Wisconsin home, living in the northeast portion of the state in rural Shawano County. Although there are days when Lee misses the place where his roots are, he plans to stick around the Badger State for quite a while.

Lee grew up in a small town called Chino Valley, during a time where someone driving along the highway could blink and miss it. Lee prefers the small-town life, although he doesn't mind an occasional trip into the bigger cities to get the essentials.

During the day, Lee is a journalist, writing and taking photos for The Shawano Leader. At night and on the weekends, however, he can be found at his laptop, creating brave new worlds or turning the existing one into a fantastic realm of love and surprises, with occasional scary thrills thrown in to keep readers from getting too bored.

Writing has always been in Lee's blood. He enjoyed writing stories in school, and in high school, he tried his hand at writing plays. He turned out to be good enough that his high school drama teacher asked to produce one of them-"Murder on the Boardwalk." Getting royalties for creating something has inspired him to keep going.

Lee's foray into full-length novels did not blossom until 2006 when he visited family members in Wisconsin and went on a camping trip with his sister and brother-in-law. It was autumn, and the changing colors of the leaves mesmerized him. Even though he was on vacation, he started developing the idea for his debut novel "The Colors of Love and Autumn."

Since then, Lee has published a sequel to that book, as well a paranormal trilogy based in Sedona, Ariz., and a stand-alone novella, along with a pair of short stories. Lee shows no signs of stopping, working on two or even three writing projects at a time.

When he's not writing, Lee is running around with his Canon Rebel, snapping pictures of people, places and more. He shares his home with his dog, Toby, and his roommate, Keith. Lee hasn't found the man of his dreams like most of his main characters, but he's still hoping.
