Bridget O'Brien lost her fiancé to a dangerous job. And, while she'd love to have a relationship like the one she lost, the last thing she wants is one with another man who willingly puts his life in danger. Luke Foster is a motocross racer whose track record with women runs short and no-strings-attached on both sides. He'd never seriously pursue a forever-after woman like Bridget. All they want is a holiday week away. Bridget from her well-meaning family's condolences about her planned Christmas Eve wedding and her memories of a future that won't be. Luke from his family's annual critique at which he and his life choices always fall short of expectations. But, under the blue Caribbean skies, anything can happen.
A Team Macachek Christmas
Sparks fly from a Christmastime reunion of motocross racer Jesse Brewster and his ex-girlfriend Lauren Cooper. Being thrown together to plan the race team's Christmas party reignites a flame Lauren thought she'd extinguished when she broke up with Jesse six months earlier. But will Jesse's well-meaning secret Christmas gift—meant to help win her back—compromise the independence Lauren is fighting to establish? Is it, as she maintains, the wrong time for their love?
Christmas Pizza to the Rescue
Jilted at the alter two weeks ago, motocross champion Royce Evans plans to make an appearance at the Team Macachek Christmas party to show the guys he's just fine.

Out-of-work investigative reporter turned pizza delivery person Samantha Linder needs money for her younger sister's special school tuition and needs to re-establish her cred as a reporter. When a freak winter rain storm strands them alone at the barracks, they strike a bargain that benefits them both. But after Sam appears to break that bargain, can even the spirit of Christmas save their blossoming love?

From that day in first grade when she realized t-h-e was the word "the," she's been reading everything she can put her hands on.

She and her college-sweetheart husband tried the city life in Los Angeles, but quickly returned home to their native Upstate New York. They share a 170-year-old farmhouse just south of Albany, NY, with their daughter and son-in-law, two grandchildren, and a menagerie of pets. Their son lives nearby. While Jean creates stories, her family grows organic fruits and vegetables and tends the livestock de jour.

A Team Macachek Christmas Anthology by Jean Gordon Three stories in this book. Holiday Escape by Jean C. Gordon It was to be Bridget's wedding day. Instead she's at the airport and waiting for her connecting flight to get away from it all. Jeff died doing his job at the US Embassy overseas...she's going to go on the cruise to the Caribbean. Luke she notices at the airport-she was his PT teacher and he's hot to look at. He and his older uncle are on the 'no holiday' cruise that means no holiday music or decorations. What I really liked about this story was that I've never been on a cruise and was so fun to hear about all the other activities available off the ship. Is it possible this could just be a once in a lifetime and they can end it at the end of the cruise... Excerpt from another in the series is included. . A Team Macachek Christmas Lauren is taking finals, NY and he's left her behind after the break up text. She's moved on and she's helping by giving her mother money after their separation. Lauren is cleaning rooms and runs into Jessie as he's there for the Christmas party. She's used her money to buy gifts for relatives and the car and has no money for her books... Mom wants her to contact her dad and get money from him. Story also follows Jessie and he's there in town for the party but she gets under his skin, as always. Like how they work together and you get to hear each of their side to the story. What I love about this book is I've read the latest book in the saga and it helps me understnad what happened prior-fills in the missing pieces for me. .Love hearing about all the decorations and the surprise he has for her for Christmas. Christmas Pizza to the Rescue Royce has received a note from Athena who's delivered a message from the bride-she eloped with another. Story also follows Samatha who is delivering pizza to the motorcross builidng saving to pay for her sister's education. Love what she discovers in the interview when they are snowed in. Never thought of making a pizza in the shape of a Christmas tree-so cool! Like how this collides with charactes from the other storeis, wicked cool! Miscommunication and misunderstandings and you wonder if they can overcome it all and get back together. Great read. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.
