The Christmas Con – Jill James

TheChristmasCon 200x300New Release

The Christmas Con is a short Christmas story playing with the Robin Hood legend.

Robin Cappington has many sins to atone for. She spent ten years working  with her dad, Little John as a jewel thief. After a job gone wrong, John now  sits in prison and Robin and crew have gone legit with a security business.  Feeling the need to right a few wrongs, Robin uses her gang and her skills to steal from the thieves and give back to the owners.

The Christmas Rose necklace is worth half a million dollars. Robin wants to get it back for the  owner, Mrs. Willa Scarlett. There is only one catch; it sits in the vault of a notorious gang leader and the only person who can help her break in and retrieve it is Ian Marr, the man who broke her heart and got her father sent to prison.

Robin Cappington is sure that Ian Marr is the last thing she needs in her life, but the fates and Santa have a different idea of just what Robin needs for Christmas.

The Christmas Con is available as a short story at All Romance eBooks, Amazon,, and Smashwords.

It will also be available in the Christmas on Main Street boxed set along with the other stories by the Authors of Main Street members, tentatively November 1st, 2013
