Summary

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips now provides her fans with The Great Escape from ordinary women’s romantic fiction, featuring some of Phillips's most adored characters, including Ted Beaudine and Lucy Jorik.  
Lucy Jorik is a champ at not embarrassing her family—not surprising since her mother is one of the most famous women in the world. But now Lucy has done just that. Instead of saying "I do" to the most perfect man she's ever known, Lucy flees the church and hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough-looking stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. At his beach house on a Great Lakes island, Lucy hopes to find a new direction . . . and unlock the secrets of a man who reveals nothing about himself. But as the hot summer days unfold amid scented breezes and sudden storms, she discovers a passion that could change her life forever.

The other is a "minder" on the whaling ship in the form of cooper Matthew Macy, a man whom she loathes.Soon Phoebe discovers that life at sea is no easier than life on land. Lonely, seasick, and disillusioned, she turns the pages of Great Mary's journal and finds herself drawn into the life of this noble woman. To Phoebe's shock, her great-grandmother has left a secret behind that carries repercussions for everyone aboard the ship, especially her husband the captain and her shadow the cooper. This story within a story catapults Phoebe into seeing her life in an entirely new way--just in time. In this brand-new series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher brings her signature twists and turns to bear on a fascinating new faith community: the Quakers of colonial-era Nantucket Island.

    Mari can’t believe she found a lunatic hiding in her adopted son’s room. The arrogant man claims to not only be an elf but also Santa. Admittedly, he’s a fine specimen of male beauty. He doesn’t look anything like Old St. Nick nor does he resemble the little toy makers the North Pole is famous for.
     
    After Sanclen spirits them away to Claus Village in Antarctica, she and Sanclen trade barbs and struggle not to fall in love. But he’s running out of time to find out what lies at the heart of his case if he wants to save the young family that has come to mean so much to him.
     
    This is a short story of approx. 14,250 words and has been previously published under the title of Santa for Christmas.
