About the Book
Heiress Ariana Christmas is in trouble. Fed up with her wastrel life full of parties, hot spot appearances and Internet scandals, her parents cut her allowance, her cell phone access and her car. Then they send her to the back of beyond…Hope Springs, Tennessee. Her aunt has suffered a mild heart attack and needs help restoring Christmas Inn to its past glory. All Ariana wants is to get the job done and get back to her life. What she doesn’t count on is the famous old inn weaving its way into her soul…not to mention the handsome young contractor who sees the Inn as it could be, not what it is. Can he do the same for Ariana?
Taylor Knox is a man with a plan. After years of handling the family’s construction business everything is set for his brother to take over. Taylor is determined to finish his education and complete his dream to become an architect. But first, Knox Construction has to complete renovations of Christmas Inn…a task made more difficult by the arrival of Little Miss Entitled. Ariana Christmas throws Taylor’s plans and schedule into complete disarray, threatening the completion of the work and his future. That doesn’t even begin to cover what she does to his heart.

Guest Post from Tanya Stowe: Writing as a Team
Christmas Bells are Ringing has been an absolute joy to write. My co-authors and I have already written a collection together. We enjoyed the process so much we created four collections of our Heart’s Haven series set in a community with an angelic environment!
We wondered what it would be like to start a new collection with a new theme and so we jumped in with both feet. Working together again was a blessing. Ideas flowed and built upon each other so well, we knew there was a master plan behind it. The most important thing about the process was there were no disagreements.
That is not always the case when writers get together and I really have to say that’s one of the key components of working together as authors. You must put your ego in check. If you do, the finished product will be something unique, something you would never have created on your own. That’s an incredible feeling and I love and appreciate my Love at Christmas Inn sisters all the more for it! Not to mention the fact that they are awesome writers! So be sure to check out their stories and their websites.
