“Christmas Cookies on a Cruise Ship,” by Parker Fairchild, comes out Tuesday, Nov. 17 via 5 Prince Publishing. The Christmas romantic comedy has a digital price of $2.99 and print price of $15.95, and is available at

“Chemist and budding romance writer Olivia Chasen is on a cruise to avoid spending Christmas with her beautiful twin sister and new fiancé—Olivia’s ex. Now, thanks to her lonely, intoxicated ramblings on Santa’s lap, her fellow passengers think she’s in love with a fictional character,” a news release sums up of the novel’s plot. “Former Navy SEAL Commander Jace Morse has dealt with plenty of unusual situations in his career, but he’s never had the honor, the pleasure, or the privilege of being a beautiful and intelligent woman’s fantasy hero come to life. While he hasn’t officially met the sexy chemist, he’s sure eager to explore the chemistry that’s sizzling between them.”

Ms. Fairchild, a Virginia native, is a model, social media copywriter, and freelance writer with multiple writing credits.
