Giveaway: Win Heather Graham’s Classic Romance “An Angel for Christmas”

by Amy Wilkins, Harlequin Digital

The holidays are right around the corner–and that means Harlequin has all kinds of holiday romances to get you into the spirit of the season…even ones with a paranormal twist!

One of our favorites is Heather Graham’s classic story, An Angel for Christmas, which has been reissued and is available again in stores now. It’s the story of a mysterious stranger who arrives at a family gathering, bringing unexpected lessons about love, faith and the holiday spirit:

Christmas has never brought out the best in the MacDougal family. Still, year after year they gather together in the Blue Ridge Mountains to try to make the season merry and bright. But this year is an especially strained one, with Shayne’s impending divorce, Morwenna’s slavish devotion to work and Bobby’s reluctance to face what life has to offer. They’ve never felt less like a family.

Then, in the midst of a sibling shouting match, a mysterious stranger appears. He could be a criminal, a madman—or something far more unexpected. Despite their fears and the growing danger in the dark woods around them, the MacDougals take a leap of faith. But when another stranger arrives on the mountainside, they don’t know which of them to believe. One of these men can’t be trusted. And one is about to bring Christmas into their hearts.

  1. I’m not sure I have a favorite holiday story. Maybe just the Night Before Christmas.

  2. I don;t think that I have one particular holiday favorite…I love experinecing new holiday reads each year!

  3. My favorite Christmas story is The Night Before Christmas

  4. My Kind of Christmas By Robyn Carr

  5. Elizabeth H.

    My favorite holiday story is not in a book but a movie. Scrooged with Bill Murray. I love it!

  6. My favorite holiday story has to be the one about Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer!

  7. Oh I loved reading The Christmas Angel. Hmmm my favorite Holiday story is The Christmas Box

    thanks for the contest

  8. None other than the Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens!

  9. A holiday story that I love is actually a film, “One Special Night”, which stars James Garner and Julie Andrews at the top of their game! These two very talented and charming stars have never been more appealing than they are in this lovely and poignant holiday film. I have loved James Garner since I was a kid–he can steal my heart at any age!

    A description of the film:

    “The made-for-TV holiday romance “One Special Night” brings together James Garner and Julie Andrews for their third feature together, after The Americanization of Emily and Victor/Victoria. Robert (Garner) visits his wife in the hospital, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. There he meets the stern Catherine (Andrews), a widowed pediatrician who spends her downtime visiting the room in the hospital where her husband died a year ago. In the middle of a raging snowstorm on Thanksgiving, Catherine offers Robert a ride and they get stuck in the snow. Taking refuge in an empty cabin, the couple get over their initial personality conflicts to engage in a meaningful dialogue.”

    Oh, and they engage our romantic imaginations as well–romance is not just for the young, it is also for the young at heart! This beautifully told and acted film also explores the effect of catastrophic illness on families. Sometimes, the greatest gift you can give someone is to let go and then go on living. That is what it truly means to love someone and be loved in return!

  10. Thanks for the fabulous post and giveaway! I’ve always loved It’s a Wonderful Life 🙂

  11. My favorite is Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, a terrible 60s sci-fi movie. One of the channels here shows it every year.

  12. I actually love to reread another Heather Graham book at the holidays. It is Home in Time for Christmas, I love the crazy story of how Melody tries to hide how crazy she thinks the man she hit in a snowstorm is, but her family is so accepting. It is such a fun story it always puts me in the holiday mood. I would love to win another of her Christmas novels.

  13. I’d say it’s a three-way tie between National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and Elf, but I have stacks of books and movies with great holiday stories. The best ones are the ones my family makes every year: madness, too much food, fun with decorating, and animal and child shenanigans!

  14. I have always loved The Grinch! (the animated not the live-action)

  15. My two favorite Christmas movies are It’s a Wonderful Life and The Christmas Carol. This movie show that the poorest man is the richest man because he has friends and family which really matter.

    In the It’s a Wonderful Life, even though at the time George Bailey didn’t realized it until the end of the movie, each and everyone of our existence does matter. We might have influence somebody’s life and we will never know the difference that we have made in that person’s life.

    This is what the spirit of Christmas really is about.

  16. The classic A Christmas Carol is my favourite.

  17. My favourite Christmas story is the classic “Heidi.” And, “A Christmas Carol” is of course high on the list. For a contemporary choice, I like Debbie Macomber’s “A Cedar Cove Christmas” and “Christmas Letters.”

  18. The Gift of the Magi is heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time!

  19. There are so many to choose from but I would say Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” and Moore’s “Twas the Night Before Christmas”.

  20. My favorite holiday movie is Bishop’s Wife, with Cary Grant as an angel. That’s on my must watch list every Christmas Eve.

    But also a big fan of Christmas Carol. The creepier the ghosts, the better.

  21. My favourite holiday story gotta be the Christmas Carol. There are so many variations/versions that I never get bored watching it again!

  22. Barbara Lyle

    Been reading Harlequin books 30+ yrs. Christmas memories always involved my grandfather.
    He was always telling us how poor they were when he was a child and only getting apple or orange in stocking at Christmas. As we got older (teenagers) we had”selective hearing” and tuned him out. Miss him
    He and my dad – miss him greatly too – died within a month of each other 30 yrs ago. So glad my daughter hot to know them both.

  23. I absolutely love Anne Stuart’s Falling Angel. It’s a bit old, but I still love it.
