Holly Aldridge had her life all planned out right down to the man she was going to marry. Brad is a doctor, he is very goal oriented just like Holly, and Holly's mother approves of him, he was perfect. Holly thought everything was going perfect until the night Brad announced that 'He needed some space' and moved out of their house. Determined to win Brad back, Holly came up with a plan she was sure would work with a little help from her friend Clarissa.

The first step in Holly's plan required finding a roommate that would make Brad jealous and Clarissa had the perfect man in mind. Sam McKenzie is Clarissa's cousin and just the kind of man Clarissa thought Holly needed.

When Sam met Holly it was love at first sight, he knew she was the woman of his dreams and he was just the man to help her loosen up. Unfortunately, Holly has eyes only for Brad and their perfect life. Will Holly realize that sometime love is not perfect but when you find the right person it is definitely worth taking a chance on?


When Janie and Richard got married they had planned the perfect honeymoon to the Bahamas, but then Janie's Aunt Geraldine gives them her wedding gift; a honeymoon in Vegas. Not wanting to hurt her aunt's feelings Janie turns to her cousin Stacey Ames for help. The plan sounded easy enough, while Janie and Richard went to the Bahamas, Stacey would go to Las Vegas and pretend she was the lucky bride and Aunt Geraldine would never know the difference.

Stacey was enjoying a nice hot bubble in the luxury of the Honeymoon Suite when someone started knocking on the door. When Stacey opened the door there stood the last man Stacey ever expected to see again, Dylan Davis. Shortly after Stacey's divorce she and Dylan started dating, and just when Stacey found herself falling in love with Dylan, he dumped her.

Ever since the night Dylan broke it off with Stacey he has regretted it. Now he has the perfect plan to win her back and what better place than the Honeymoon suite in Las Vegas. While Stacey sets out to convince everyone that she and Dylan are actually Janie and Richard the honeymoon couple, Dylan sets out with some plans of his own. But when Stacey finds out about Dylan's charade and the lies that he told her will Stacey say goodbye forever?


For three years Chloe Charmichal has kept her true feeling for her best friend Nick Steadman to herself, content to be his 'pal'. Chloe supported him on his inventions, took care of him when he was sick, and listened when he needed to talk. When Nick and what'shername broke up Chloe was there to pick up the pieces, with a little help from some Kahlua and coffee. Things didn't go as well as Chloe had hoped, when Nick woke up in Chloe's bed naked and could not remember anything. It did not take Chloe long to realize that Nick was not at all happy about the situation, so Chloe denied anything happened and continued to love Nick in silence.

Six weeks later keeping her silence became a whole lot harder for Chloe when she discovered she was pregnant. Nick made no secret that he did not want a child, every other man in the Steadman family had given up their dreams for a steady income, and Nick wanted more. When Chloe told Nick she was pregnant and a marine named 'Bruno' was the father he was determined that she find 'Bruno' and tell him. The question is why does Nick feel so jelous every time Chloe mentions 'Bruno'? Will Chloe ever get the nerve to tell Nick the truth about their baby?

ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS brings together three heartwarming stories that warm the heart and share the true spirit of the holiday season.
