~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FEATURES:

Tara L. Ames – SEAL Unwrapped

Best buds since elementary school, Sean Lakeman is her soulmate.

Lovers since high school, Lindsey Mallorie is his compass.

They’re supposed to be together forever… until Lindsey’s father, the town’s sheriff, threatens to arrest Sean if she doesn’t stop seeing him for he’s just a ranch hand going nowhere fast. Unaware Lindsey has given him up to save him, he changes the direction of his life and leaves Montana, vowing never to see her again.

Now a highly decorated navy SEAL, Sean comes home for the holidays a decade later, still wrapped up in years of bitterness toward Lindsey. Will he be naughty and seek revenge against the woman who crushed his heart, or will he make her Christmas wish come true and be nice and bare the gift of forgiveness…for there’s a lot more than the magic of the season sparkling between them.

Alyssa Drake – Mistletoe Hopes

When a chance meeting under the mistletoe ignites a hidden attraction, Tess is forced to choose between fighting her desire or surrendering to love.

Christmas in the snow sounded like a brilliant idea when Kaitlyn pitched the idea of spending their annual sister holiday at a working ranch. However, mid-flight, Tess discovers Kaitlyn’s underlying motive is to spend the next seven days ogling the male owners of Dove Ranch.

Stuck in the snow with no electricity and a cowboy-crazy sister, Tess finds solace with the eldest brother, Weston, who deplores the suggestive misdirection of the ranch’s new advertising scheme. Agreeing to buffer Weston from the advances of the ranch’s eager guests, Tess finds herself falling for the man she offered to protect.

However, when Weston makes the ultimate sacrifice, Tess must decide if she’s willing to risk her heart on a cowboy.

Bella Emy – Fighting For Us

Book 1 in the Love is Worth Fighting For Series

In this steamy holiday romance, can an MMA, ex-Navy SEAL, single dad find love again? Can a brokenhearted young woman believe happily ever afters don’t only exist in books?

LORENZO
I had it all.
A wonderful family with a loving wife who was my world and a beautiful baby girl.
I didn’t need anything more to be rich in my eyes.
Then one day, everything changed and my world was ripped apart.
My wife, my everything, was taken from me, and I was left alone to raise our baby girl.
I was forced from late night sessions at the gym to changing diapers all by myself.
Thank God for the help I received from my parents and siblings or I would have been lost.
I accepted my fate of being alone with my baby girl and living life with just us two…
Until the day I met her, and she became everything worth fighting for.

CARISSA
Life was so perfect.
A loving fiancé, wonderful friends and family, and a job I adored.
Until one day, my world was turned upside down and the man I loved threw the promise of forever down the drain and walked out of my life.
The day he walked out of my door, I knew that everything I had ever grown up to believe in was a lie.
Love is unconditional but love sure as hell doesn’t last forever.
The vow to love me for the rest of our lives ended quickly as he pulled away from me, and buried himself in the arms of his ex.
I was left alone, cursing the male species and everyone who had found their happily ever after.
My sister and my best friend were the only ones there for me…
Until the day I met him, and he became everything worth fighting for.

C. A. King – High Heels And Mistletoe

Billionaire Romance meets Sweet Christmas Love in this New Romantic Comedy made just for the holidays.

Call it an allergy or a family curse, either way it boiled down to the same problem: Julietta Romero couldn’t go within six feet of mistletoe.

Forty-eight weeks, from January to the beginning of December, were spent filling the position as a top executive at a prestigious marketing firm–a five-year running record without a single incident. As long as she continued taking all her vacation hours all at the same time, nothing would change. Then, the worst scenario happened: with only a handful of days left before her flight, she found herself working round the clock on the firm’s biggest deal yet, and her boss wasn’t letting her leave until it was signed, sealed, and delivered.

Luke Winslow was in love with women, parties, and the holidays, and not necessarily in that order. Taking over one of his father’s companies didn’t fit into any of his plans, nor did a relationship that lasted longer than a roll in the sheets. There wasn’t a single person who had made him want to settle down and be serious, that was until she fell into his arms… several times. Now, he’ll do anything possible to stop her from escaping his charms, including holding off putting his John Hancock on the business deal his father instructed him to close.

It’s up to the magic of the season to bring this unlikely couple together with a little help from a pair of High Heels and Mistletoe.

Shannyn Leah – My Big Fat Fake Mistletoe Kiss

Mistletoe mishap. A toe-curling kiss. The wrong brother.

An all-paid Christmas work vacation to Santa’s Village Resort sounds perfect. Right? Snow, twinkle lights, reindeer, the whole shebang. Wrong.

When Bailey Tremblay purchased some naughty silky lingerie, she had planned on surprising her boss with a treat on the side. After all, the week before they’d shared a toe-curling kiss under the mistletoe. But when he shows up with another woman on his arm, effectively destroying her delightful Christmas plans, Bailey is shaken. Hiding in her room for the remainder of the trip, eating ginger cookies and drinking cider sounds like the best way to retreat and heal her hurt ego.

Her boss’s brother, business partner, and the co-owner of the company—aka her other boss—has his own holiday plans. And he isn’t about to take no for an answer. Now Bailey finds herself pretending to be Wesley Sinclair’s fake lover and kissing the wrong brother under the mistletoe … or is she?

Why is it every time her lips are on Wesley’s, they’re alone?

Hold on to your jingle bells with this holiday rom com that will leave you swooning and looking for holiday magic everywhere.

Erin Lee – Crazy For Christmas

The Christmas Academy. Frankly, it sounded absurd. But with a name like Noelle and her quirky family’s reputation for leaving candy cane lights up year-round, who was she to complain? Between semesters, she could certainly use the distraction. It was the least she could do for a struggling little town that had lost its spirit since the mill closed.A Santa gig. Really? Still, it was the best he could do for now. Looking up at the twinkling sign dotted in mistletoe, Kristopher reminded himself it was only temporary. It wasn’t like he had any other place to be but had always found holiday festivities silly. What happens when a cheery professor and a burly, bitter con are tasked with bringing the holiday spirit back to a struggling town? It all begins with the mistletoe.

Ellie Masters – Hawke Christmas In Paradise

HAWKE: Christmas in Paradise, is a Steamy, Holiday Billionaire Romance that will heat up the sheets and keep you warm on a cold winter’s night.

Christmas in paradise turns out to be way more than she bargained for…

Quinn Hayes had it all and lost it all. Her picture-perfect relationship, the venture capital she needs to launch her fledgling company…gone. All she has now is the vacation she planned to take with her ex-fiancé—and there’s no way she’s letting that go. The last thing she expects (or wants) to find in Euphoria is love. But the sexy, confident man she meets there has her wondering if a rebound is precisely what she needs.

Hawke Sterling doesn’t do romance. He’s far too jaded for that. Fairy tale, happily ever after endings just aren’t for people like him. But there’s something about Quinn that has him questioning everything. She’s smart, charming, and entirely too gorgeous for his peace of mind. Too bad the only thing he has to offer her is heartbreak.

When it turns out that Hawke holds the key to Quinn’s professional success (or ultimate failure), he’ll have to decide if the cost of being with her is more than he’s willing to pay—and Quinn will need to decide if taking a second chance at love is worth the risk…

Samantha Morgan – Santa’s Letter

‘All I want this year is for daddy to be happy again’

When a letter addressed to Santa accidentally arrives in Lori’s apartment mailbox, she can’t resist the temptation to read it. After realizing it’s from the young boy next door with a recently widowed father, she knows she should respect their privacy and stop. However, it’s Christmas and she might just be able to save the holiday for them with a little bit of tinsel and mistletoe. This Christmas Lori will stop at nothing to make Jason’s wish come true.

Victoria Pinder – A Scot For Christmas

Sophia
Lost my job right before Christmas sounds like a bad joke, but without the job, my immigration to London is at risk which means no more of my Jane Austen life and the only life I’d ever wanted.
Until billionaire and Scottish lord Harris Kellison makes me a deal I can’t refuse.
He’s the sexiest man in a kilt I’d ever seen.
I want to tell him no, but I’m out of options.
So I’ll play his game, but lucky for him, I don’t ever fall in love.
Harris
The Kellison men are cursed or blessed and I’m the clan Laird. We only fall in love once, and know in an instant.
Sophia is it for me. I want her in my bed and at my side.
She refuses to trust me though, but she’s the most intoxicating woman I’d ever kissed.
I need to make her mine, permanently.

His story is Shamrock And Clover: Fields Apart by one of my fave authors C. A. King, and available exclusively in Sinners and Saints Anthology.

A Shamrock has three leaves.

A Clover can have more.

Faith, hope, and love are standard.

But luck is always number four.

He’s a sinner when it comes to love; she’s a saint. They’re both searching for the elusive fourth leaf and a little luck. If they meet in the middle, they might just find it and each other.

Shamrock & Clover is a sweet Romantic Comedy chronicling the journey of one unlikely couple in their search for love

Author Bio

USA Today Bestselling & Award Winning Author, C.A. King, was born and raised in Halton County. She currently resides in Brantford Ontario, Canada with her two sons.

After the loss of her loving parents and husband, Ms. King was devastated. She decided to retire from the workforce for a year or two to do some soul searching. It was during this time that writing became her passion. She found she was able to redirect her emotions through her writing and in 2014 decided to publish some of her works.

I need to thank everyone for being so wonderful. It’s amazing when someone reads your work and enjoys the story. I already have people waiting for future books to be released.

Carol Ann King is proud to have her name join the list of Canadian born authors. She hopes her writing will help inspire another generation of Canadians to continue adding to the literary heritage and rich culture Canada already has to offer. Her books in The Portal Prophecies series are fictional fantasy stories based on opening the door to possibilities.

Book world adventures – Autumn 2018 edition

Hello and welcome!

As I posted about these in September and October, I attended two books signings this fall. It will be a long post but bear with me, it will be worth it.

In September there was Ignite Your Soul Author Event in London, ON Canada.

banner.jpg

Love their slogan: Real books. Real People. Real community. Come ignite your soul with us!

I was a PA for the day for M. A. Abraham but also got to mingle with the other authors, bloggers and readers. Here is my haul.

books bought
swag collected

This year it was the Alzheimer Society of London and Middlesex who was the recipient of the silent auctions proceeds. The authors, bloggers donated some great prizes to bid on. I bid on two and won one, which is not too bad.

After the signing, the VIP guests attended the Autumn Harvest Dinner After Party where the buffet dinner was delicious, there was dancing with DJ entertainment and photo booth to goof around in, I got to use the spanking paddle on a few friends LOL the night ended with tears rolling down my face and holding my stomach from so much laughter. Yeah I am looking at you Tricia and Angie … I am still waiting for the demonstration on how to eat the tiramisu properly 😛

All in all it was a good event and we had a good time, kudos to authors
Crystal St. Clair & Erin Cristofoli and their awesome team of volunteers, looking forward to next signing happening in 2020. Check out the website for more info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In October there was a brand new 2-day event, KaLiCon held in Belleville, ON Canada

It went beyond expectations and thanks to Kali Willows and Kacey Hammell, along with their amazing team, the event was a great success. Friday schedule was packed. There was the Elven Games I got to put together with M. A. Abraham where we had musical chairs, musical toys (a variation of musical chairs for those with mobility issues), puzzles, crafts, frog games, bow & arrows, also pin-the-tail-on-the-dragon, also games involving balloons, spoons and knees too 😀

There was the Author-Sponsored Luncheon, then Author Speed Dating (chat with the author for 5 minutes then move to the next one), then Cider Sampling with Kayleigh Malcolm. I have to say I never really liked cider before, now I certainly do. Later on was the VIP Cocktail Party where we got to try some yummy cocktails. I tried the KALICON DRAGON and BOOK WHORE… YUM … got to keep the menu sign YAY

We also had virtual signings from authors who could not be at the event and we chatted over video link. Lots of prizes were won, I did too, got a dragon eye necklace from Kali Willows.

On Saturday morning there was the Guess Whose Line is It, where there were lines read from various books and who guessed right won the book. I won Clone – Book of Eva by Paxton Summers got to keep the board and signed too. Also won a t-shirt from her.

Again, I was assisting M. A. Abraham at the signing but also got to sneak out and check out the other tables, meeting new authors along with hugging my faves. My haul is smaller this time 😉

swag

The silent auction was a resounding success, with the generous donations from authors, bloggers and a few local companies.  My contribution was this necklace I made using aventurine, chalcedony, corralium, turquoise and 925 silver. The chosen charity was the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.

The plans are already in place for next year, I will be there helping M.A. again, plotting the Elven Games. Make sure you reserve your spot as soon as possible, go to the website for more info.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now to the best part… because it is my birthday tomorrow and you are all amazing and I love sharing my loot with you, there are two parcels, each containing:

  • two signed books chosen at random from the ones below. I purchased a copy of the Word Search for Warriors from C. A. King then got thinking, it is for a great cause, so I bought another one to share with you. Shaded by Love – Coloring Book was gifted by Kerri Anne, Clone – Book of Eva was gifted by Paxton Summers and Essence Derived was gifted by Carey Decevito specifically for this giveaway.
  • swag
  • VIP bags from both events
  • a tote bag from me, also this fan made by me

Sexy Mr. Random will pick the 2 winners, after 3pm EST on Monday, November 26, 2018, from the comments. Open internationally! GOOD LUCK!
