Create the Christmas Romance of Your Dreams Scene by Scene, Twist by Charmingly Predictable Twist

Slip on your favorite Christmas sweater, cozy up to a crackling fire, sip some spiced eggnog, and prepare to experience the ultimate holiday love story. But instead of watching it on some cheesy cable channel, open this book and put yourself in the director's chair.

First, decide where your romance will unfold. Will it be a small town with a festive name, or a generic European kingdom? Just make your choice and read how the magic unfolds. When it's time to meet your man--do you prefer a hunky mailman, a hunky executive, or a hunky nemesis? Each choice will take you down a totally different path that all somehow end up making for a perfect made-for-TV romance.

Will your Christmas activity montage include baking cookies, walking through a holiday festival, or volunteering at a children's home? Will you choose to include a generically bearded old man who perhaps could maybe be Santa Claus? Choice by hilarious choice, you'll make your way closer and closer to the big payoff--the picture perfect, most romantic final kiss ever.

And when you've savored that last bit of snowy, romantic goodness, don't be glum. Turn back to page one and start a new love story. With over 1,000 possible stories the happily-ever-afters never stop happening.
