My Comments:

Merry, Merry Mischief by Lisa Plumley:

Oh so sweet and adorable!  A couple who recently broke up, but still have feelings for each other get stuck (unexpectedly) babysitting a 6 month old baby girl.  They are both pretty clueless which makes it a very funny read.. :)  too cute.

Holiday Studs by Kylie Adams:
Funny and cute. :)  Nice twist with a common plot.

Under the Mistletoe by Elaine Coffman:
The start of this story was confusing to me.  Apparently it was past tense, but I didn't know this for a few chapters.  The timelines seemed to be off a bit to me.. I found this very distracting to say the least.  And I just could not seem to make myself like these characters.  I found it all so jumpy and long winded..

A Baby for Christmas by Lisa Jackson:
This story was the reason I wanted to read this book and I am so glad that I did!  I have heard great things about this author, but hadn't read anything by her until now.  And I was far from disappointed. :)  It almost made my dislike of the previous story worth it!  I will for sure be reading more from Lisa Jackson in the future.  She really sucked me into the world of her characters with great story telling and a great mix of romance and suspense.
