New Release: Not Christmas Without You

If you’ve been one of my readers for awhile, you know I love the holidays so it’s no wonder I’ve written my sixth Christmas romance for Tule Publishing, with Not Christmas Without You out today! Not Christmas Without you is book four in my Love on Chance Avenue series. featuring Charity Wright (you may remember Charity from Amanda and Tyler’s story in Take a Chance On Me) and I hope you enjoy watching Charity fall in love with Quinn Douglas!

This is a sweet, small town romance set in Marietta, Montana, and it brings together two families you’ve been reading about in quite a few of my books. You can purchase Not Christmas Without You at any of these vendors:

Tule Bookstore | Amazon Print | Amazon Kindle | B&N | Kobo | GooglePlay

I love connecting with my readers all year round, and one of my favorite places to chat is my Facebook Group Author Jane Porter’s Friends and Fans. If you aren’t already a member, please join us as we talk about books and holidays and just keeping each other company. (Plus I always have fun giveaways every month just for my friends in this group so it’s a great way to win books and reader treats too!)

And speaking of talking books, I’ll have a new Harlequin Presents out mid-January. If my sensual, emotional Harlequins are your thing, keep an eye out for The Prince’s Scandalous Wedding Vow where you’ll meet a deliciously passionate prince, heir to the throne of Aargau and his sweet scientist, Josephine who is utterly captivated by his devastating good looks and charm. I’ll be sharing more about them later on my website so stay tuned.

I’m so excited about my new story, and you can buy it now in both ebook form, and print (head to Amazon for the print edition!), and to celebrate the new release, I have a wonderful holiday giveaway for one lucky winner. For a chance to win, please leave a comment below and tell me what’s your favorite part about the holidays and you’ll be entered a box packed with these fun Christmas reads and treats!



  1. I love buying gifts for my family and also driving around at night looking at the decorations and lights on people’s homes. I also love how everyone seems to be in a nicer mood this time of year.

  2. Precious time with family telling stories, meals together and celebrating unforgettable and cherished memories with the little ones.

  3. Now that my kids have moved away, I just love that the holidays are another reason for everyone to make a trip home. I miss my girls.

    Also, I love all the holiday movie, books and baking shows there are at this time of year. I love the extra bit of festivity at this time of year. I wish there was a way to keep this feeling going all year long.

    I started reading my copy of Not Christmas Without You last night. and you did it again, Jane. A wonderful, sweet and memorable book and I am only half way finished with it. Christmas Wishes to you, your family and your Tule family.

  4. I love all of the baking and making of special treats for this time of year. I get to make some treats to share with family and friends. I also get to overeat! ugh

  5. Congratulations on you new release!

    I love decorating at the hospital on Black Friday. It sets the mood for the rest of the season for me.

  6. I love the smells of Christmas; the tree, garland, baked goodies, cinnamon everything. I love being with my family, the lights, decorations, music, and Christmas movies. Watching Elf with my boys is a yearly tradition.

  7. My favorite time is when all the sisters, brothers, nephews, and in-laws on both sides of our family come to our house. Christmas Eve is magical, watching the kids play and unwrap presents.

  8. Will be enjoying my family here and thankful for that. Christmas Eve, Christmas Day then the next day is my son’s birthday…let the fun begin. Happy Holidays to all.

  9. Thank you Jane. Great article.
    The best thing about Christmas is, first, the reminder of what the season is all about. The birth of Jesus. Second, family, for some, it’s the only time of year they see each other.

  10. My favorite part about the holidays are listening to Christmas music, putting up the tree and putting ornaments on (my grandson loves asking about each of the ornaments), seeing the colorful lights at night, opening Christmas crackers during get-togethers, and time with family.

  11. Spending time with my family is the best part of the holiday. If we are eating holiday cookies while we visit – win!

  12. Got the book from Amazon but it might be “Christmas in January” because I have no time to read it right now. It will be a post holiday treat just for me.

  13. My favorite holiday time this year will be actual family time together. My hubby usually works a lot and odd shifts till 3am in the mornings and so we don’t get much time together. This year he gets 13 days of vacation so we are going to do a staycation at home and just enjoy all the family time we get this year!

  14. Spending time with my grandkids making cookies ,watching movies doing special activities the look on their faces. We are making precious memories

  15. My favorite part about the holidays are spending time with family and friends.Not Christmas Without You is a wonderful well written book.

  16. Happy release day.

    My favorite part of the holiday is just sitting back and looking at the Christmas tree all lite up. If course, the lights in the rest of the house have to be out.

  17. My favorite part of the holidays is creating handmade gifts for everyone along side my 7 year old granddaughter. We start in January and sew all year long. It’s so much fun to see or hear her tell me the reaction from her teachers when she tells them she created their gifts. Plus she is spending time with her Ducky learning not only to sew but , read, measure and well we bond.

  18. I love spending time with my family and friends that live far away at Christmas time. We have a party and get really goofy and loud. 🙂

  19. My favorite part of the Holiday is making memories and enjoying being with my family. I have been fighting Stage Four Lung Cancer for a year and a half but unfortunately I recently found out it has spread into my lymphnodes. The treatments are no longer working, so I am really having a big holiday to leave great memories for my family and my 4 grandbabies.

  20. I love getting ready for Christmas. Buying the present, baking cookies, writing Christmas cards and simply just enjoying the season.

  21. I love that Christmas brings my family together. We’re scattered all over Australia so we rarely get to spend time together. Christmas is special because all or most of us are here.

  22. Spending time with family, counting blessings all are happy and healthy. Love the cover of your new book, and everything about Marietta. Thanks for the chance to win.

  23. I love seeing family and friends over the holidays, especially those I don’t get to get with that often.

  24. Congratulations on the new release, Jane! I love the lights of Christmas. It’s the color and the whimsy and the quiet that seems to go along with seeing all the lights at night, it’s my favorite thing.

  25. My favorite time of the year is Christmas time. I love spending time with family and friends but since moving to Florida (21 years ago!) less family and more friends have come over. I love shopping for a special gift for each person who’ll be with us at Christmas time.

  26. Congratulations on your new release! I love your Christmas books. I have so many fond memories of Christmases spent with extended family. Now, I enjoy driving around to see the lights and surprising people with little presents.

  27. We enjoy walking around our neighborhood seeing the Christmas lights and knowing our neighbors are friends we are so grateful to know. Merry Christmas Jane!

  28. My favorite part is all the extra love at this time. All the extra kindness and generosity shown to others

  29. We spend a quiet Christmas just our immediate family! We love this special time of year when we can just relax from sports and be together as a family! I can’t wait to read your new book!!

  31. My favorite thing to do is be with my daughter and grandchildren during the holidays as they live several hours away and I only get to see them once in awhile.

  32. My favorite part of celebrating Christmas has long been the music and the Christmas books. As a child, the Little Golden Book Christmas classics like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer were brought out to enjoy for the season. Now I order favorite titles on Kindle to share with my granddaughter overseas.

  33. Christmas Eve Candlelight Service has always been my favorite part of Christmas!
    Wonderful prize pack! Thanks for the chance to win.

  34. I love spending Christmas with my family. Just being together brings me much happiness. Playing some fun and silly games.

  39. My favorite part of the holidays is getting to spend time with our 3 daughters and their families. One family comes for over a week each holiday from Zaragoza, Spain. Another visits from O’Fallon, Missouri & the third lives in Magnolia, Texas. Each family had 2 children, until little Sienna was born this year! Now we have 7 grandchildren we adore and feel quite thankful for each! So many blessings. I love having my week-long plus family fixes! While we travel to see each individual family during the year, the holidays get us ALL TOGETHER and that’s Magically The BEST!
