About A Lot Like Christmas:

For Jessica Connolly, there is no better place than her coastal hometown of Blue Moon Bay. She has a wonderful family, supportive best friends, and a successful bakery on Main Street. Unfortunately, every time she designs one of her ex-boyfriends’ wedding cakes, she’s reminded just how unlucky she is with love…and that she’s a good luck charm for men to find their happily ever after. With someone else. The minute they break up. So she’s decided to be done with love.

Dr. Mitch Jameson is more comfortable traveling the world with Doctors Without Borders than staying in one place. He just needs to survive the holidays in his small hometown before he can leave again. The beautiful, intriguing bakery owner with an aversion to dating might be just who he needs to occupy his restless heart.

From sipping hot chocolates at the local festival of lights to early morning dessert deliveries, Jessica and Mitch rediscover the spirit of the holidays. But when the 25 days of Christmas are over, will their romance be over, too?

Exclusive Excerpt:

December 1st…24 Days until Christmas

“Be honest, you at least spit in the frosting, right?”

Jessica Connolly placed the bride-and-groom topper on the white-and-silver, tastefully Christmas-themed, three-layer cake and stood back to admire her work. “The only joy in all of this is that they will never know.” She winked at her best friend, Whitney, as she carefully boxed up the forty-hour labor of love.

Later that day, her beautiful creation would be enjoyed at ex-boyfriend number three’s wedding. Three weddings in the same year for three guys she’d had relationships with. Unbelievable.

“No one would blame you if you did.” Sitting at the counter of Jessica’s bakery, Delicious Delicacies, her not so recently engaged friend flipped through the book of wedding cake designs that she’d looked at a dozen times already. Her beautifully manicured, candy-cane-themed nails flicked the pages so fast it was a wonder she could actually see the choices. Whitney shook her head. “I can’t believe these guys, asking you to do this.”

“To be fair, I’m the only real bakery in town. And besides, John, Cameron, and Dallas are great guys. They just weren’t the right guys for me,” Jessica said, repeating her mantra. She could put on a brave face, but this was getting exhausting.

Three brides in the last year. None of them her.

And worse, there wasn’t anyone in her small hometown of Blue Moon Bay that she wanted to date that she hadn’t already. At almost thirty, she’d been hoping to design her own wedding cake soon.

“The funny thing is,” Whitney said, “they all found ‘the one’ after they ended things with you.”

“Thanks for pointing that out, Whit.”

Her friend’s laugh was apologetic. “Sorry. I’m just saying, you’re like a good luck charm for these guys. Wasn’t there a movie like that?”

“Believe me, if this was a movie, I’d have your legs and Sarah’s butt.”

Whitney paused her page-flipping, her expression contemplative as she tilted her head to the side.

Did we have a winner? Excitedly, Jessica leaned over the counter to see which design had caught her friend’s attention. Her heart stopped. It was the three tier cascade wedding cake, white with lavender accents and sugar work doves adorning the top. Jessica’s favorite. The cake she’d always wanted for her own wedding…if/when she ever got married.

Please don’t let her select that one.

If her best friend wanted it, there was no way Jessica could deny her from having it. She held her breath, waiting…

It’s only a cake. No big deal. She could design a new one for herself. Not as pretty as this one.

A second later, Whitney resumed flipping.

Oh thank God.

#BookTour “The Cowboy and His Angel” by @AuthorKaciRose @SDSXX

The Cowboy and His Angel

Rock Springs, Texas Book 9

by Kaci Rose

Genre: Small Town Contemporary Romance

Two Rock Springs hearts driven by a higher calling…

Abby

After the death of my parents, I made it my mission to honor their memory by living the life they would have wanted for me. Helping others. Pursuing my career goal of becoming a midwife. Settling down with a nice guy. Unfortunately, as much as my parents would love the guy I’m currently dating, I feel exactly zero chemistry with him. To distract myself from that headache, I’ve opted to visit some freinds in Rock Springs and help out with the church’s annual carnival. Pastor Greg is as cute as they come, but a man of God seems off limits for dating prospects…

Greg

Knowing I’m single has prompted every member of my congregation to try and set me up with any and all available ladies they know. It had become common practice for me to politely decline, and suggest they invite them to attend service instead. Yet when Abby volunteered to help with the carnival arrangements she instantly caught my eye. I didn’t intend to kiss her on top of the Ferris Wheel, but the moment seemed right.

Confused by her own feelings, Abby bolted. Can I convince her to follow her heart? Or will she choose the path she believes would have made her parents happy?

Come meet the small town of Rock Springs Texas with a family that has your back, a town that knows your business, and men who love with everything they have.

This is a Steamy, Small Town, Cowboy Romance. No Cliffhangers.

#BlogTour “Serve ‘N’ Protect” by @teeofallon- @InkSlingerPR

SERVE ‘N’ PROTECT by Tee O’Fallon is out now! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Title: Serve ‘N’ Protect

Author: Tee O’Fallon
Genre: Romantic Suspense

About Serve ‘N’ Protect:

Ambushed and left for dead, U.S. Secret Service K-9 Officer Markus York is on the mend and laying low in a safe house while his team tracks down his attacker. But Markus isn’t good at sitting still. Even with his K-9, Ghost, for company, he gets restless and decides now is the perfect time to do some repairs around the house…and inadvertently tears open his wounds.

Fresh out of a bad relationship that ended after a car accident left her with limited mobility, freelance accountant Cassidy Morgan has sworn off men. At least, that’s the plan. Until a frantically barking dog leads her to a neighbor’s house where she finds a mysterious man out cold and bleeding on the floor…and mumbling things like “no, they’ll find me” when she tries to call an ambulance.

Yeah, that’s not at all concerning.

Despite Markus’s surly attitude, Cassidy senses there’s something else at work beneath his rugged, keep-your-distance exterior. Whatever it is, it’s sexy as hell.

With someone still trying to kill him, Markus doesn’t want an innocent to get hurt, let alone take care of him.

If only his dog wasn’t crazy in love with her.

If only the chemistry between Markus and Cassidy didn’t explode whenever they were in the same room.

If only Cassidy wasn’t a target now, too.

#MFRWHook “Yet, she didn’t offer more.” #NewRelease #MFRWAuthor

decisive moments

by Iris Blobel

Her mouth curved into a tentative smile and with some exaggeration she replied, “Yes, I am.”

He frowned, sensing sarcasm in each of these three words. “I suppose I deserve that. Stupid question. I’m sorry.”

Her gorgeous smile did all sorts of things to his insides. “Yes, it was.” Yet, she didn’t offer more.

After a brief, but silent moment, he offered her his hand. “Tyson.”

She ignored it, though. “Nice meeting you, Tyson.”

He chuckled. “This is the part where you’re supposed to tell me your name.” Her sigh was enigmatic as she stared into the distance. Aware of the fine line he was treading here, he contemplated leaving. Yet, a pull towards her, something irresistible, and, yes, some curiosity as to why she sat here early in the morning with a sadness written all over her face didn’t let go of him. The urge to get to know her was growing by the minute. The fact that something was hurting her was obvious by the tears, and everything inside tugged at him to help.

BLURB

Can their new love survive the return of his past?

With his first year as a pro footballer behind him, ruckman Tyson Gaspaldi meets Katie while on a holiday in a small coastal town. Everything about her intrigues him, and he wants nothing more than to spend some time with her. Once she finds out how he earns his money, though, she hesitates to take whatever it is between them any further.

Katie Cassidy is still overwhelmed by the recent loss of her sister, but a chance encounter with Tyson stirs emotions and a love for life inside her again. However, when Tyson’s ex-girlfriend blindsides both of them, all of Katie’s childhood demons return and she pushes him away.

Will they be able to deal with the ghosts of their pasts and move forward for a chance of a life together?

decisive moments

by Iris Blobel

Tyson Gaspaldi parked his car, grabbed his surfboard from the boot, and walked across the recreational area to the foreshore. The cold breeze off the ocean went right through him, but it didn’t stop him in his resolve. A sense of contentment seeped through him as he glanced across the nearly empty beach. He liked the idea of being one of only a few out in the water. He loved the surf, the dunes, and the tang of sea air. The stunning blue of the Pacific Ocean was inviting, the sea was perfect with waves breaking cleanly and directly onto the beach. A fishing boat to the left headed towards the harbour, while to the right a small number of people walking briskly along the beach braved the early morning chill. He made a mental note to bring his dad to the foreshore during the afternoon.

With one quick move, he zipped up his wetsuit, jumped into the water, and paddled out to sea. Then he surfed as many waves as possible until the swell died down. Happy with his efforts, he emerged from the sea and shook the water out of his hair. As he walked back towards his car, he struggled with his surfboard against the gentle breeze and had to put it down to get a better grip on it with his hands. A woman sitting only a few metres away from him caught his attention. Even in the small distance he saw that her body trembled with subtle sobs. He hesitated, aware she most likely wanted to be alone and kept walking. Blowing out a huff, he stopped anyway as pity and helplessness grew within him. Another glance towards her, his mind told him to leave her be, yet his manners told him to be kind and do the R U Ok thing. Still unsure whether it was right or not, he walked towards her. After all, the worst that could happen was for her to push him away.

“Hey.” He kept his voice as close to a whisper so he wouldn’t startle her.

decisive moments

by Iris Blobel

“Hey.” He kept his voice as close to a whisper so he wouldn’t startle her.

She wiped her eyes with the back of her hand and turned to him. Shading her eyes with the other hand, she echoed his greeting. “Hey.” The confusion of why he’d approached her was still whirling through his mind, and he glanced across the ocean for a beat to focus. Something about her held him captive. The thin long-sleeved shirt hugged her curves nicely, and so did the cargo pants she wore. She smoothed a loose strand of her curly light brown hair behind her ear as their eyes met. The beautiful green colour of her eyes shone through brightly despite her tears. He wasn’t able to walk away, but studied her for a second or two, noticing the tight lines around her lips. She had a beautiful mouth and he had an urge to touch her lips as she slightly bit them, caress them if it were to make her feel better.

He let out a soft snort. Not that long ago he burnt his fingers when a girl left him, and since then he had sworn off the opposite sex. Yet, something about the woman in front of him drew him in and intrigued him.

Scratching the back of his neck, he crouched down next to her. “Are you okay?”

Happy Sunday
Today’s snippet is again from my new story, which follows Piper and Jon.

ENJOY ♥
THANK YOU

Today’s Snippet

“I’m not sure what I expected,” he finally admitted.

Piper moved a strand of hair from her face. “Sorry, I know it’s late. I couldn’t sleep. And … you know … the messages …”

He choked back a soft chuckle. “They were meant to amuse you a little, not to give you sleepless nights.”

“They did. As in, they did amuse me.” She lifted her shoulder in a subtle shrug. “Now I’m here to say thanks. I can’t remember anybody ever care in that way.”

Jon scratched the back of his neck. “Look, I’d like to offer you to—”

“No,” she countered and added with a smile. “No, I really just wanted to say thanks—”

“How about breakfast tomorrow morning. In the camp kitchen. My treat. Bacon and eggs.”

Heat trickled through her as she contemplated his offer. After all, she didn’t know him, only that he’d cared enough to take his time to put a smile on her face with his small notes. She met his gaze as he waited for an answer. Was he not used to wait? He looked sexy enough to have any woman.

“That’d be lovely.” She heard her own words. “I look forward to it.”

I do appreciate each single one of them!

#NewRelease “Rajasthani Moon” by @LisabetSarai

Rajasthani Moon
Smashwords and Amazon KDP
ISBN (Smashwords): 9781005359492
ASIN: B09DBMLQQG

Neither kink nor curse can stop a woman on a mission.

Blurb

Neither kink nor curse can stop a woman on a mission.
A bandit prince cursed into beast form under the full moon.
A brilliant but sadistic Rajah whose robotic sex toys mingle torture and delight.
A voluptuous spy on a mission from Her Majesty, tasked with discovering Rajasthan’s secrets.
She has never faced such a challenge. 

Fear of Flying

It would have been much faster to fly.

Alas, Cecily Harrowsmith—special agent for Her Majesty the Queen, expert in the martial arts of three continents, past mistress of princes, potentates and the occasional prime minister—was afraid of flying. She despised herself for this weakness, but not enough to board one of the Empire’s sleek, viridium-powered airships, strap herself into her seat and hope for the best.

Thus begins my most recent release, Rajasthani Moon, a book that deliberately defies categorization. It contains elements of the steam punk and paranormal sub-genres, plus quite a lot of moderately extreme BDSM and a M/F/M ménage. It features a kick-ass Rubenesque heroine, a billionaire Rajah and a sexy, deliciously disreputable bandit. It flirts with non-consensual fantasies and lesbian attraction. It has some funny moments, not infrequently associated with sex. Oh, and it’s a romance, with what I hope is a sublimely satisfying happy ending (although I won’t tell you who ends up with whom!) 

Writing this book involved taking risks. I’ve observed how readers cling to their favorite genres. I’m breaking rules right and left with this novel. Will the market embrace my mash-up? Or will readers run away in droves, terrified of the unfamiliar?

Producing the same sort of stories, again and again, can be comfortable. It may help sales,  too. To grow as authors, though, we have to leave safety behind. We must step out onto that high pinnacle of creativity and let go, defying the fear that we’ll plummet ignominiously to the ground. We have to get over our fear of flying.

Snippet

She returned to her senses to find herself slumped across the pommel of the saddle. Pratan was fussing with the straps that bound her legs to the infernal machine. Her wrists were already free. He bent to his work, exposing the nape of his neck. A single karate chop would render him helpless. The thought arose, unbidden, a product of her training. She dismissed it wearily. At this point she didn’t have the energy to kill a flea.
