Susan Mallery fans won’t be disappointed in her latest novel, Marry Me At Christmas. In this latest installment of the Fools Gold series, bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug falls for Hollywood heartthrob, Jonny Blaze, and thereby raises the question: can two vastly different people make their love story last beyond the holidays?

Jaded and worldly wise, Johnny didn’t plan to fall in love when he came to town. After all, romance is just a cinematic illusion as far as he is concerned. But when he meets Madeline she is unlike any woman he has ever met before.

Sweet and honest, Madeline is a hopeless romantic with a huge crush on the megawatt action star. The best part of all is he’s even better in person than he is on the big screen. But should she dare give her heart over to a man that fuels women’s fantasies and spins celluloid dream for a living?

This is a charming story about how opposites attract and the power of love. So put up your feet, grab a blanket and indulge in a cup of your favorite hot beverage as you devour this heartwarming tale. You’ll be glad you followed Mallery down the rabbit hole for yet another fun ride into Fools Gold.

Susan Mallery is the number one New York Times bestselling author of books about the relationships that define women’s lives—romance, friendship, family. With compassion and humor, Susan keenly observes how people think and feel, in stories that take readers on an emotional journey. Sometimes heartbreaking, often funny, and always uplifting, Susan’s books have spent more than 200 weeks on the USA Today bestsellers list, thanks to her ever growing legions of fans.

Critics, too, have heaped praise on “the new queen of romantic fiction.” (Walmart) Booklist says, “Romance novels don’t get much better than Mallery’s expert blend of emotional nuance, humor, and superb storytelling,” and RT Book Reviews puts her “in a class by herself!”

Although Susan majored in Accounting, she never worked as an accountant because she was published straight out of college with two books the same month, January of 1992. Sixteen prolific years and seventy-four books later, she hit the New York Times bestsellers list for the first time with Accidentally Yours in 2008. She made many appearances in the Top 10 before (finally) hitting number one in 2015 with Thrill Me, the twentieth book in her most popular series, the Fool’s Gold romances, and the fourth of five books released that year.

Susan lives in Seattle with her husband, two ragdoll cats, and a tattletale toy poodle. Her heart for animals has led Susan to become an active supporter of the Seattle Humane Society. Animals play a big role in her books, as well, as she believes they’re an integral component to a happy life.
