I love Christmas! Do you? The purity of a fresh fall of snow, twinkling lights everywhere, home-baked goodies, families coming together, and peace and goodwill everywhere.
It gives me a good feeling when I write about people finding each other during the holidays. Their coming together seems so much sweeter. This year I have a special treat in store for you. It’s a bit steamier than my usual stories, but hey, what else is there to do when the power goes out and a fire is burning in the fireplace?
So, without further ado, here is this year’s cover. What do you think?
Erica London needs some time alone to figure out if she should continue with the in vitro treatments. They haven’t worked so far. She really wants to have a baby and an heir to the ranch…to know he or she was on the way before Christmas. Of course, wishing for a man to love her and produce said baby would be wonderful, but that’s not about to happen. She rides over to the London Lodge, situated on the back-end of the London Ranch, to clean and close it down for the winter. A freak blizzard has her snowed in, but she doesn’t mind in the least. She has food, shelter, and wood fires to keep her warm. Besides, she enjoys not having the phone ringing or wranglers stopping in to chat.
Spencer Rafferty is on his way to his brother’s wedding when he takes a wrong turn and ends up on a side road. His car hits a nasty drift and barrels into the ditch. With no signal on his cell phone, he looks around and all he sees is white. He smells wood smoke but can’t determine where it’s coming from. Then, in a moment of clarity when the wind dies down, he sees the smoke and walks down the road toward it.
Erica opens the door with gun in hand, unsure whether or not to allow the stranger in. But the storm is a raging blizzard and she takes pity on him. When not covered in snow, she sees just how handsome the man is…and he’s not wearing a ring. When the power goes out, things heat up. Could this man be the one to make her wishes come true? Did she have it in her to embark on a weekend affair? And could she survive his leaving when the storm was over?
With a little luck and participation from Amazon, Her Christmas Wishes will release tomorrow at 99 cents in ebook form. I hope to have it available in print by November 1st.
Until next time, Happy Reading!
