Zola called Selfridges a ´great cathedral of shopping´, and its high priest was Harry Gordon Selfridge, father of modern retailing, philanderer, gamble dandy and the greatest showman the consumer world has ever known. The charismatic Selfridge had created nothing less than a lavish ´theatre of retail´.
Get in the holiday spirit any time of year with these funny, sweet romantic short stories. Discover the loose thread that connects the stories and ties up in a perfect happy ending, bringing together characters from all the stories. The stories include: ´´Spooked by Love:´´ After divorcing her husband, Marnie´s afraid to trust her heart again. Her ex is moving on fine, but she hasn´t even been on her first post-divorce date. She can´t handle another break-up. Then she meets a hot single dad at her daughter´s Halloween party and he´s got his eye on Marnie. The only problem: he claims he´s just out for fun. Is anything scarier than giving romance a second chance? ´´Holiday Rush:´´ A Black Friday shopping-trip-gone-wrong loses Lindy her job, her guy, and her dignity. Then it gets worse - she has no choice but to take a job she loathes. But there´s one bonus in the deal: a seriously hot boss who might help her feel that holiday rush again. ´´Missing Christmas:´´ Is Ginny just homesick, or did she make the mistake of her life? Ginny´s spending her first Christmas away from home, but she´s not feeling the spirit of the season. She moved down south to be with her boyfriend, and now she´s having serious regrets about leaving her family and friends behind. Does new love trump twenty-three years of holiday tradition? ´´Tingle All The Way:´´ Jessica has never bought into the magic of Christmas, but when a mistaken call to 911 ruins the holiday for Morgan, the little girl next door, Jessica will do everything she can to make it up to her - and to Morgan´s hottie uncle. Can Jessica turn her worst Christmas ever into the best one yet? ´´Giving Up Guys:´´ Three friends, one vow, and a drunken toast. These gals are giving up guys for their New Year´s resolution. During the next six weeks, they´ll pursue something besides men - like new hobbies and classes. Good luck with that, ladies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tamara McDaniel.
