As far as twelve-year old Quinn is concerned Christmas has lost its magic. Since his father’s death life has lost its sparkle. His mom is now a widow struggling to put food on the table. Quinn is no help, and the mysterious illness afflicting him only makes things worse. Even Christmas, complete with decorated trees, ribbons and bows have no meaning…then along comes Jazira.

Jazira doesn’t know what happened to her former self, the eleven-year old little girl. She drowned, didn’t she, along with half the other folk of Cold Creek in 1911? Somehow, she’s grown four furry legs complimented with a large wolf head and body. Scared and alone, she reaches out to Quinn and a strong bond is formed. Jazira learns Quinn, and his mother, are threatened by a wealthy powerful citizen of Cold Creek. She is determined to protect her new family, no matter what. Christmas Eve finds Quinn staring up at the adorned tree and muttering a quiet prayer. Will the Spirits of Christmas grant his wish, or will the evil surrounding Cold Creek prevail once again?

I’m a small town girl with big world dreams. I was born in Jasper, Alberta, and my parents were outdoor enthusiasts. My dad was an avid fisherman and I’m certain my mother was Mother Nature.

The love of my life is my husband. He, along with my animals are my inspiration for everything I write.

I live for romance, and truly believe true love conquers all. From an early age you could always find me with my nose buried in a romance novel—that hasn’t changed. I write various forms of romance from contemporary, paranormal and fantasy to erotica.

Book Blitz & Excerpt: Secret Angel + Giveaway

Secret Angel
by Cherry Christensen
Contemporary Romance, Christian Holiday Romance

Doctoral student Hannah Wagganer has big dreams of leaving her hometown of Glen Arbor behind to teach at a large university. That is, until Jasper Morgan, the new mail carrier, arrives in town. Not only does he send Hannah’s heart racing, but he creates an instant bond with her cat, Jingles.

While Hannah is busy preparing for the church’s candlelight Christmas Eve service and running the family store, she keeps bumping into Jasper—right in front of the prying eyes of the locals, who suspect there’s more going on than business as usual.

But then, a series of unexpected blessings occurs that changes the town’s focus: first, an anonymous donor pays to have the church furnace repaired, and then other locals suddenly find solutions to their problems. Is it coincidental, or the work of a secret angel?

Author’s Note: Secret Angel is regularly priced at $0.99. It’s the first book in my Secret Series.

Read an Excerpt

“The meal was wonderful, and so was the company,” Jasper answered, turning briefly to catch Hannah’s eye.

“Glad to hear,” Sabela said, grinning. “Be right back.”

Hannah rolled her eyes. “Now you’ve gone and done it. We’ll be the talk of the town by tomorrow morning.”

“That’s one time I won’t mind being in the spotlight.”

The heat in his voice melted her insides to mush. “You’re crazy.”

“Uh-oh,” Sabela said, approaching their table. “I bet you weren’t supposed to figure that out until he had you completely under his spell.” She handed him the credit card and winked at Hannah. “Thank you and come back soon.”

Hannah laughed and put on her coat. Exiting the restaurant, frigid air smacked her cheeks as the door closed behind them. She pinched her collar tighter, stepping beside Jasper on the way back to the shop.

“I’m sorry if I embarrassed you in there,” he said, kicking a chunk of ice with the toe of his boot.

“It isn’t the first time.” She listened to the faint sound of a snow blower off in the distance, remembering other occasions when Sabela instigated rumors about Hannah’s love life. She quirked a smile, realizing fantasy was more gossip-worthy than reality, and perhaps Sabela’s meddling would somehow prove beneficial in the future.

“Is that a good smile or an ‘I’m plotting my revenge on him’ smile?”

She hastened her pace as Deer Crossings came into view. “I’ll never tell.”

“Hey, wait,” Jasper called out, his footsteps stomping behind her. “That’s not reassuring at all.”

About the Author:

Cherry resides in the Mitten State with her husband of 19 years and a tabby cat named Caden. A true Michigander, she points at the palm of her right hand when telling people where she lives, drinks Vernors ginger ale when she’s under the weather, wears shorts and a sweatshirt at the same time, and measures distance in minutes, not miles. She also cheers for her favorite football team, the Michigan Wolverines. Go Blue!

A confirmed night owl, Cherry wholeheartedly agrees with whoever said, “I could be a morning person, if morning happened around noon.” It’s no surprise then she prefers to write in the evening. She’s a bit of a pantser writer, meaning she dreams up stories without using an outline, so every day is an exciting adventure as she waits to see where the characters lead her next!

A lifelong avid reader, Cherry turned to writing as a creative outlet. Drawing partly from her own experiences, and partly from her wild imagination, she weaves romantic tales with a smidgen of religion and a hint of mystery. Cherry’s first novel, The Fearful Heart, debuted in 2014, and she has never looked back. She continues to grow as an author, learning more about the writing craft with each book.

Launch – Note from the Author

Welcome to a world loosely based upon a classic fairy tale but wrapped up in snowy holiday magic. FAIRYTALE CHRISTMAS WITH THE MILLIONAIRE is the modern day retelling of Cinderella…and did I mention it includes an adorable cat named Prince? . . .

Cover Lover Book Review – Review

Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire fills so many boxes. It contains a fabulous fairytale feel (say that three times fast!) a wonderful Cinderella retelling, and a setting during the most wonderful time of the year–Christmas! . . . I love everything Christmas and fully enjoyed this sweet, romantic, opposites attract Christmas story.”

BookHounds – Excerpt

The worry in her friend’s warm brown eyes drew Alina’s concern. “What is it?”

“It’s another letter about them throwing us out.”

“What?” Alina rushed over to her mailbox. In her rush, she fumbled with her keys. They fell to the tile floor with a loud jangle.

Reading Excursions – Review

“. . . I really loved it! . . . This was such an addicting little read that I kept wanting to turn the pages. Definitely an easy read. Fastest read “romance” line book!

Fans of the author, genre, and those who’ve read the first two books will more than likely enjoy this little read. I always enjoy Jennifer Faye’s books and look forward to reading them!”

Rockin’ Book Reviews – Review

“This is a great Christmastime story! It is related to other similar themes, yet themes we all need to remember. Jennifer is a very talented author who always manages to captivate readers.”

Wishful Endings – Excerpt

When he lifted his head, his gaze met hers. Her heart jolted in recognition. She would know those brown eyes anywhere. They were the same ones she’d stared into that very morning in the lobby of her building.

His dark brows drew together as unspoken questions flashed in his eyes. Apparently, she wasn’t the only one to remember their run-in. But why had he followed her here? Was he some sort of stalker? Worry sent her pulse racing.

Books and Zebras – Review

“This story is a fast easy to read stress reducer. Filled with charm, humor and warmth, Fairytale Christmas with The Millionaire reads like a lovely fairytale should, romance and conflict included. The characters are likeable and engaging, plus they show growth throughout the story.”

Hallie Reads – Review

“Jennifer Faye’s Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire is a charming, fun romance. This quick read offers a modern-day spin on Cinderella, and as Alina and Graham navigate the challenges that their circumstances present, it is enjoyable to see how it all seems to work together.”

Splashes of Joy – Review

“I love Jennifer Faye’s sweet romance stories and this one is another awesome one that I enjoyed very much! Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire is the perfect story to read during the Christmas Holidays. . . . The Fairytale feel to this story is amazing and I love the spin on [the] old fairy-tale Cinderella.”

Melissa McClone – Excerpt

Graham hadn’t intended to spring a surprise attack. In fact, he’d been expecting her to recognize him. Perhaps he’d done too good of a job ducking the press since taking over as CEO. The truth was that he’d never wanted to live a public life, not like his father, who made the news regularly.

Christy’s Cozy Corners – Review

“I know I’m constantly gushing over Jennifer Faye’s books, but there’s a reason…they’re amazing! Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire really touched my heart. It’s filled with many sweet and touching moments, and I think it will touch your hearts too. . . . Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire will keep you turning the pages and staying up until you reach the end. It’s that good. It’ll warm your heart and leave you with a smile on your face. I highly recommend it to all of you romance lovers!”

Pause for Tales – Review

“This is a contemporary story but I really enjoyed how the author brought in all of the elements of the fairy tale and wrapped it in a nice Christmas package as well. This was a heartwarming story of finding new love and new reasons to move on from the past and live in the present and hope for the future.”

reviewingbooksplusmore – Review

“Alina was such a fun character. . . . Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire is an excellent Christmas story.”

Locks, Hooks and Books – Review

“What another delightful read by her. It was so very good. . . . I am giving Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy reading sweet and heartwarming romance, as well as, those that are set during the magical time of Christmas.”

Harlie’s Books – Review

“This book has all the feels. I laughed, swooned, got mad, and was in awe of Alina and Graham. Most don’t know that I’m a sucker for Cinderella stories. Cinderella is my all-time favorite Disney princess so this book is a win for me. It had the wicked stepfamily, the handsome prince, a fairy godfather, and a heroine with a heart of gold. But it also had the setting of New York City at Christmas so another score for me. The icing on the cake was that Ms. Faye was able to weave the classic story of Cinderella into a modern tale of hope, love, and above family with a twist. . . . It’s a joy to read.”

QuirkyBookReads – Review

Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire is loosely based on Cinderella. It is descriptive, well written and easy to follow. The plot shares a heartwarming tale finding love around the Christmas season. . . . I would recommend reading Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire . . .”

Teatime and Books – Excerpt

Graham moved to a small table. She followed, finding two black, thickly cushioned chairs placed on opposite ends of the small table. In the center was a white tapered candle. Its flame flickered. And there were two place settings of what looked to be real china. A private dinner for two?

Bookish Jottings – Review

“Jennifer Faye knocks it out of the park yet again with her enchanting Yuletide contemporary romance, Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire. A wonderful storyteller who makes readers fall in love with her characters from the very first page, Jennifer Faye effortlessly blends humor, emotion, drama and intensity in a beguiling contemporary romance that is strictly irresistible. . . . A heart-warming, emotional and captivating contemporary romance, Jennifer Faye has another hit on her hands with Fairytale Christmas with the Millionaire.”
