I just finished this two-thumbs up book by Arabesque's best three authors: Hailstock, Hill, and Ray. In my opinion, from writers of hits like Forever Yours, Break Every Rule, Clara's Promise, and Chances Are; there was no doubt in my mind these three stories would be fantastic, too. Let's just say, I wasn't disappointed!!
First, I read Hill's "Round Midnight" and I simply fell in love with Summer and Tre. They were destined for each other. Of course, around midnight when Tre called the station I cried my little eyes dry. I thought the other stories couldn't get better. Until I read, Hailstock's "Kwanzaa Angel", I admit I was skeptical at first because I'm not into the Kwanzaa thing, but I loved this story about innocent Erin who eventually found her Prince Charming (Raimi Price). Keep hope alive girlfriends, don't give up on that first crush - there's still hope!!! Then, I read Ray's "Until Christmas", let me just say I was no more good after Ethan wrote 'Until Christmas' for Samantha.
In my opinion, whether it's the Christmas season or not you gotta experience this book for yourself. Run don't walk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cold Nights, but warm hearts 14 Jan 2001
By Luv2Read - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Francis Ray's, "Until Christmas" is a touching novella about a young woman who not only touched the heart of the high school principal, Ethan Rawlings, but Samantha also won the hearts of Ethan's twins, Alan and Alex. Samantha, aka "Sam," was hired as a combination housekeeper, babysitter temporarily, but only until Christmas. At least, that is what Ethan told the twins and Sam, as well as himself. However, it was much too late for all of them to abide by this decision. Each was starved for the other's affections and each had become too attached to give up. The twins, not only saw Sam as their housekeeper/babysitter, but they saw her as a friend. She could play ball and was not afraid of their dog. The twins' affection went deeper still. Although they were in contact with their grandmother, they were still minus a mother figure. Sam with her winning ways, not only because she was a good cook and let them help her in the kitchen, but because it was who she was, had become special to them and they wanted her with them full time. Not only had Sam become special to them and the twins had become special to Sam, but Sam had also affected the twins' dad. Ethan's feelings for Sam were more than that of an employer, more than that of a friend. Somehow, in that short time, Sam had imbedded herself into Ethan's heart. Was he willing to allow a new love interest into his life or was he still shadowed by the deceit and experience of his ex-wife and the deceased mother of his twins. Ethan thought he had a solution to the problem when he reluctantly agreed to keep Sam, "but only until Christmas." However, love does not have a set time to go away. Therefore, until Christmas, turned out to a lifetime of love for Sam, Ethan, Alan and Alex. "Until Christmas" was the best. Way to go, Ms. Ray.
"Kwanzaa Angel" was a sweet remembrance into the past with a chance to correct the future. Erin had been hurt in the past by Raimi, who had reentered her life. Would Erin give in to her feelings that never dissolved for Raimi and become involved in a new relationship or would she revert back into the past? "Kwanzaa Angel" was about the Kwanzaa celebration, but with a twist of love for Erin and Raimi. Good story.
"'Round Midnight" was about the New Year's celebration. I loved the story of Dr. Summer Lane, the psychologist who now has a job at the radio station as a counselor on the air. Her show airs around midnight. It is at the radio station where Summer meets Tre Holland, one of the bosses. Everyone thinks Summer is a snow or ice maiden because Summer stays to herself and does not socialize with the others. However, Tre is attracted to Summer and sets out to melt the snow. Summer also has feelings for Tre and wants the ice to melt from around her heart. However, after getting together, somewhere while the ice is melting another freeze comes along and the ice around Summer's heart becomes another block of ice. Summer and Tre suffer heartship and are temporarily separated. Tre sets out to recapture Summer's love and to permanently melt the ice. He knows a new year will be approaching and is determined to be in Summer's life when the new year begins. So, he sets out around midnight to make it happen. Will Tre succeed in his endeavor? Read "'Round Midnight" and see what the New Year has in store for Summer and Tre. Great story with just the right amount of heat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Anthology 27 Oct 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All three stories were well written. These stories deserve their own stand alone novel! They were great. All the stories pulled you in and you hated to see the characters go! I would love to hear more about Erin and Raimi as well as Tre' and Dr. Summer Lane.
