And I’m participating in this wonderful event!
From December 17th through December 21st, author Tory Richard and 11 other authors (me included) are all offering up holiday books as a grand prize giveaway. Yes, that’s right, some lucky commenter will win TWELVE new books plus a food item from the Swiss Colony donated by Tory herself!
Here’s the blurb for the book I’ve donated. It’s called DISENCHANTED CHRISTMAS.
Christmas in 1899 starts as a joyless affair. Bethany Cundiff has hit a rough patch of life. While caring for her young niece and nephew, she’s evicted from her residence and fired from her job ten days before Christmas. To make matters worse, a gentleman who desires her company for the holiday, and has the money to back up the promise, propositions her for sex.
Blake Wenchal is a disenchanted elf that’s been banished from the Northern Realm and Santa’s court because he’s lost the spirit of compassion and charity. Lonely from years spent by himself, he’s thrown off balance when Bethany accepts his ill-advised offer of paid bed mate—except she arrives on his doorstep with children in tow.
Neither one counted on the power of love, acceptance and the miracle of family to make the holiday unforgettable.
Now, let’s talk. I know I’m a sucker for writing Christmas-themed stories. It seems every time I tell myself I won’t do it, I end up writing a couple every year. I can’t help it. There’s something special that gives off the warm fuzzies of reading a love story set at or around Christmastime. It’s got magic and hope. It makes everything even more possible with a few miracles thrown in.
What about you? Why do you love holiday romances?
And because I love my readers so much, I’m throwing in my own little giveaway here for this post. I’m giving away a five dollar Starbucks gift card plus a free download of a backlisted books (2012 titles NOT included) So you can have a warm drink and a good read on me! Please remember to leave your contact information.
