Who’s Your Celebrity Crush? (And What Would You Do If You Met Him?)
By Susan Mallery, author of Marry Me at Christmas
In real life, I’m a 100%, dyed-in-the-wool, one-man woman. But I have many celebrity crushes. What can I say? I’m a romance writer—I have an active imagination and an active libido!
Colin Firth is my celebrity boyfriend.
Nobody does “brooding” like Colin. When his brown eyes fill with unrequited love, restrained passion and pain, I can’t help but melt. So masculine!
Justin Timberlake is my celebrity boyfriend.
He can sing, he can dance, he can act, and he has a great sense of humor. Brooding, he’s not. I saw him on Jimmy Fallon recently, and I got all squishy inside when he talked about how much he loves his baby.
Jonny Blaze is my celebrity boyfriend.
You’ll meet Jonny in Marry Me at Christmas. He’s one of the world’s most famous action movie stars. And yet, when he’s not on a shoot, he does his own grocery shopping because it helps him to stay connected to the person he used to be. He’s an ordinary guy who hit it big, and he doesn’t want to lose himself in Hollywood. Swoon!
Madeline Krug cannot believe that her celebrity crush bought a ranch in Fool’s Gold! Whenever she spots him around town, she runs away because she knows that if she sees him face to face, she’s going to embarrass herself.
But Madeline’s going to have to put on her big girl panties because Mayor Marsha wants her to help Jonny plan a Christmas wedding for his little sister…and no one says no to Mayor Marsha!

Who is your celebrity boyfriend? How do you think you would act if you met him face-to-face?
About Marry Me at Christmas:
To bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug, organizing a Christmas wedding sounds like a joy—until she finds out she’ll be working closely with the gorgeous brother of the bride, movie star Jonny Blaze. How will a small-town girl like her keep from falling for the world’s sexiest guy? Especially with mistletoe lurking around every corner!
Jonny came to Fool’s Gold looking for normal, not for love. Happily-ever-after only happens in the movies. Still, nothing about this quirky town is quite what he expected, and “ordinary” Madeline is the most extraordinary woman he’s ever met. Refreshingly honest, disarmingly sweet. Achingly beautiful.
Planning the perfect wedding leads to candlelit dinners and strolls through snow-covered streets. And Madeline finds Jonny in real life even more captivating than her celebrity crush. But will the action star be brave enough to risk his heart and step into the role of a lifetime?
