Publisher's Summary

Three of E.J. Russell’s short and sweet opposites-attract holiday rom-coms together in one collection!

The Probability of Mistletoe

An awkward geek on a mission, a determined extrovert with a plan, interfering female relatives of various sizes, and a statistically improbable amount of mistletoe.

When software engineer Keith Trainor decides to start his own company, he knows exactly who he wants as his partner: Parker Mulvaney, his best friend from high school. But in the 10 years since graduation, their contact has dwindled to nothing, and it’s all Keith’s fault. If he hadn’t tried to kiss Parker under the mistletoe at the winter formal their senior year, Parker wouldn’t have bolted. At their 10-year reunion, Keith intends to do everything in his geeky power to make amends.

Parker should have known that scheduling the reunion the day before Christmas Eve was a recipe for a headache of monster proportions. But when Keith sends a text that he’ll be attending, the evening doesn’t look so bleak. Can an unnecessary makeover, a nostalgic breakfast, an abortive shopping trip, and dance invitations with only a 50 percent success rate culminate in a long-overdue first kiss?

An Everyday Hero

A fish-out-of-water geek (who still manages to get a bit soggy), a stand-up blue-collar guy (who can't see his own worth), unexpected additions to the holiday festivities (some less welcome than others), and more than one serious discussion about the true meaning of the word hero.

When Adam Tyler's sister announced she was pregnant, Adam decided to move from Portland, Oregon, to Phoenix, Arizona, to fully embrace the uncle experience. However, he didn't count on the move being delayed until three days before Christmas - and three days before his sister's due date. And he definitely didn't count on finding a scorpion in his bedroom. Cue the panicked calls to exterminators.

Garrett Strong doesn't consider himself at all remarkable - his ex certainly didn't think so - and Garrett's pest-control business is circling the drain. Although Adam is his first new client in months, that isn't the only reason Garrett goes above and beyond for him. He feels a real connection to the younger man and intends to do everything in his power to make sure Adam feels safe and welcome in Phoenix - venomous intruders notwithstanding.

A Swants Soiree

Crafting catastrophes, suggestive sweaters, and an awkward introvert who meets his extroverted match.

Software engineer Brent Levine has always struggled with the life part of work-life balance, but to hold on to his new job, he’ll have to embrace his employer’s dreaded “staff enrichment” events. This year’s annual ugly holiday sweater party will strain his ambition to remain inconspicuous: Everyone has to wear their sweaters upside down and converted into pants - a.k.a. “swants”.

At six-foot-eight, Brent has a hard enough time finding clothes that fit him the right way up. And while he’s an ace at coding, when it comes to handcrafts, he’s definitely at the far left end of the bell curve. Luckily he encounters seriously cute theater costumer Jonathan at the Goodwill Outlet. Jonathan offers Brent both an acceptably ugly sweater and his expertise in swants conversion. Attraction sparks on Brent’s side, but how can Jonathan be interested in a nerdy geek like him?

Adorable Holiday Romances

I absolutely loved listening to these 3 holiday romances.

It was a perfect listen for the holidays.
The stories in the collection were relatively low angst, short and had sweetness overload!

The collection was named by one of my favorite narrator's who performed an amazing audio delivery and narration.


Definitely recommend this bundle!!!

Each of the 3 stories that make up Christmas Kisses offer their own version of sentimental holiday cheer. If you like second chance romances, adorkably awkward protagonists, and would be scrooges finding a little holiday spirit, you'll enjoy this collection.

Three Adorable Holiday Tales, !! Kirt Graves !!

All three stories are beautifully performed by Kirt Graves. He's always excellent, but the range of his voices in this one is spectacular. I've never heard him do womens' voices so well - the manager in A Swants Soiree, Madison, was laugh out loud funny. Well done!

The Probability of Mistletoe
⭐⭐⭐
Very cute. "Mistletoe is awesome!" indeed.

⭐⭐⭐⭐
An Everyday Hero
Great chemistry between the MC's, and E.J. Russell sets the story up beautifully. It's fun to watch these two get together.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A Swants Soiree
You know how much has to go right, to give a fifty page story five stars? Well EJ Russell's A Swants Soiree hits every high note. I love these characters and would have happily read another two hundred pages about them.

Fun Way to Start Holiday Listening

These were a fun collection of holiday stories. I had read the books in the past but picked up the audio set for this holiday season. Each of story is full of fun characters and crazy holiday circumstances. The Probability of Mistletoe we see the couple that never was finally find each other years later. You get the feeling that now is the right time for them to be together. In An Everyday Hero we have a funny meet up where one MC is saved from the dangers of moving to the desert. A Swants Soiree is another set up of having a need and stranger is there to help. If you have ever had to suffer through some kind of work related holiday event you will enjoy the humor found in this story. Listening to the story was fun and the audio version is well done.

Delightful and adorkable.

I couldn’t keep the smile off my face listening to this sweet collection of three Christmas stories.
Kirt Graves’ narration was perfection, as always, and made the stories come to life in the best possible way.

So lovely!

I love everything EJ Russel writes and these just made me so warm and fuzzy inside.
I love how the characters communicated and how they weren’t all runway models. Normal people, older ages, mixed races, quirks and unique charm that still shown like rock stars in the eyes of the people that liked and loved them ❤️ beautiful short stories- all of them! (Also always love the nerdy references!)
