“I went up to the Great House between three and four, and dawdled away an hour very comfortably...” –Jane Austen
A holiday short story anthology with some favorite Austenesque authors, YULETIDE is inspired by Jane Austen, PRIDE & PREJUDICE, and the spirit of the season. Regency and contemporary alike, each romance was dreamt to spark love, humor, and wonder while you dawdle over a hot cup of tea this Christmas.

"Their plotting, character development and resolution was textbook and really made their stories sing. For me, they were the big red bow that made this anthology a gift.If you are looking for festive, Austen-inspired stories, I hope you will give Yuletide a try."
"It’s rare to find a short story collection in which I enjoy all of the stories, but given how much I love these authors, I’m not surprised that Yuletide was an exception. This is a must-read if you love Pride and Prejudice-inspired stories, and it would make a perfect Christmas gift for the JAFF fan in your life."
