A Fly Me to the Moon Holiday Set!
A Midnight Clear
Annapolis, Maryland, 1948
Frances Dumfries is the perfect admiral's daughter. She runs the household, hosts the parties, and never falls for the midshipmen surrounding her. Having fun or putting herself first is definitely not on her schedule. And she doesn't want anyone—particularly not a man too handsome and kind for his own good—to point that out.
Midshipman Joe Reynolds sympathizes: Ever since he tumbled headlong into love with Frances, life hasn't been much fun. With only so much time until he ships out from the Naval Academy, he’s racing the clock, and her refusal to give him a second look, to secure her affection. But this sailor isn’t surrendering in the campaign to win her heart.
Torn between duty and selfishness, it will take a Christmas miracle to show Frances and Joe that love is rare, precious… and worth fighting for.
(A Midnight Clear was previously published as a standalone title.)

Greg and Betty are intoxicated by what they share at midnight, but will their budding relationship wilt in the sober light of morning?

Round Midnight by Genevieve Turner and Emma Barry Fly Me To The Moon #2 Read these two novellas at two different times – enjoyed both stories and love the series! A Midnight Clear I stayed up till two in the morning to finish this. I thought I could just read a few pages but I was so very wrong. What a wonderful story! I don’t know if it is because my parents were married around this same time period and my father was in uniform for the wedding or if it is just a story that would have tweaked my heartstrings anyway but I could not put it down till I finished the last word. Frances Dumfries is the eldest daughter of a career naval man and knows just what it means to become the wife of a man married not only to a woman but also to his career. She is pursued by many men on base but has not fallen for any of them. Joe Reynolds is a romantic at heart and at first sight of Frances he is pretty sure she is the one for him. Frances knows what she wants and does not want and is pretty sure what she wants is NOT anywhere on base. Joe knows what he wants and is smart, persistent and different than others in uniform who have set their sights on Frances. Joe has a way about him that really grabbed me and made me feel good and hope that he would win Frances’s heart. This was definitely a feel-good book that I will no doubt read again. (5 Stars) A Midnight Kiss by Genevieve Turner and Emma Barry Every one of the books and novellas in this series has moved me. This story of one night that changed the lives of two people made me smile and hope and wish and at the end I found myself oh so very happy I had read it. It came out first in newsletters sent out by the author and I only realized recently I had not read it so searched through my old emails to find and read this delightful novella. Betty Gable and Greg Henkins SO deserved to their HEA and I was thrilled to read how they found one another one New Year’s Eve two years before I was born. I can’t wait to read whatever these talented authors write next :) (5 Stars)
Didnt take my breath away
