Accepting Submissions now for the 2016 Valentine Collection
looking for Romantic tales for our
2016 Valentine Collection! This collection will be available in
eBook, print, and possibly audible.

February is the month of love and romance. VTP is looking for tales about the true meaning of love; stories where love warms the heart; or short stories where cupid plays a part in bringing soul mates together.
The short stories can be any genre as long as there is a romance and a mention of Valentine's Day. (The romance doesn't have to be the main focus, but there must be a love interest in the story.)

The stories may have a western, fantasy, historical, mystery, contemporary, time travel or even adventure theme.
What are we looking for? 
1. Any Valentine's Day themed story with a sweet to sensual romance.
(This means nothing explicit)
2. Must be a m/f romance (please no erotic or erotica).
3. Word count between 7,000-20,000.
**Please, don't send us your story if these guidelines aren't met.  
When do we need the stories?
Now until Jan. 20, 2016. The sooner you can email your submission
the better. We will do some light editing only, but we will need
time to read through all submissions. 
Please send submissions to kmnbooks @ yahoo . com (no spaces).
Please put 2016 Valentine's Day Collection in the SUBJECT LINE. 
I can't wait to read your tales! Any questions, please don't
hesitate to email me.

Six complete sweet to sensual romances from six multi-talented authors in settings that are sure to warm your heart. There's a story for everyone. Let magic of the holiday season take you away where romance awaits.
Included in this Romance Collection:

A Time to Give by Linda Swift
The small roadside restaurant where Ellen works is busy with travelers on Christmas Eve. She is counting on a bonus and tips to help pay for her boyfriend's special gift. Bruce needs a typewriter for college class work and Ellen has saved for months to surprise him. A mother and two children stop in while their car is repaired next door. Ellen learns they have a long drive ahead in a worsening snowstorm with little money and no gifts for the little ones. If Ellen helps them, she can't afford the gift for Bruce. Christmas is a time to give, but how can she choose who has the greater need?

A Christmas Wedding by Celia Yeary
Kailey Lovelace, maid of honor in her brother's Christmas wedding, hopes the best man Alex Dunn won't bolt when he sees she is six feet tall and has frizzy blond hair. At the airport, she almost loses her breath when she learns he's even taller and looks like a dream. If only he likes her enough for the week of the wedding to go smoothly.

Alex Dunn, recently discharged from the Army, can't believe his good luck when he meets his partner for the wedding. Kailey is just the right height and gorgeous, as well. He looks forward to a pleasant week in Texas. What could possibly go wrong?

One Foggy Christmas by Barbara Miller
Lady Jane Faraday is conflicted about traveling to Summerhill for the Christmas holiday since the heir to the estate, and the man who was supposed to marry her, has died. But she has other worries than her guilt over not marrying Henry St. Giles. Stephen, the younger son and the one she loves, is still fighting the war in the Peninsula. If only he had written to her she would know where she stands with his affections. She'd wait for him if he'd say the word, but she isn't sure he's still alive.
Stephen St. Giles receives leave to return home since his beloved brother Henry is dead and the war is nearly over, but what of Jane? She has answered none of his letters. Is she now his brother's widow or did she wed someone else? And why has he heard nothing from his mother? As he trudges the last miles toward home through the fog, he feels as confused and uncertain as his misty surroundings.

Jack and the Christmas Journey by Teresa K. Cypher
Tildie Janson lost her husband, Harp, three years ago, and the only joy in her life is Jack, her husband's dog. Without him she'd be lost. With Christmas around the corner, her friends step in to help her move on by badgering her into taking steps toward celebrating the holiday. They mean well, but she wishes they'd leave her alone. On one of their planned outings, a chance encounter, with a man from her past, forces her to face life again, but the prospect scares her and she retreats. She can't let go. However, Fate-or maybe a touch of Christmas magic sends Jack on a journey that changes everything.

Return Engagement by M. C. Scout
Tanner Armitage has been overseas for nearly a year serving his country and can’t wait to come home to surprise the love of his life.
An Army brat, Brynn Josephs looks forward to when he gets leave to come home though she’s sure it won’t be this year.
Christmas is in the air but can he successfully pull off a return engagement?

Third Time's the Charm by Gerald Costlow
4th in the Modern Day Sherritt Witch series.
Trudy Macalester is a young, single schoolteacher living with her newly remarried father. She discovers her new stepmother is a witch when she stumbles upon a book of spells. When Trudy reads from the book, she accidentally summons a charming rogue bent on seduction; a man nobody but she can see or hear.
