Day 9: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

The winner of Day 8’s books is Julianne! Congratulations! I’ll be in contact by email regarding the books you’ve won.

The goodie bag today has some really awesome books in it. Adera Orfanelli, Kitty Bucholz and Linda Carroll-Bradd. Plus two MF erotic paranormal books from me. This is a broad spectrum of books when it comes to genre, but hopefully there is something for everyone here! As a plus, Linda Carroll-Bradd is offering to give away an ecopy of her book and print 2013 calendar fromThe Wild Rose Press chosen from those who either subscribe to her blog or follow her author Facebook page and mention the “30 Days of Christmas Giveaway.” What an extra bonus!

I forgot to post the links to Shifting Winds’ and Hot Water’s trailers yesterday but I remembered to post trailer links today. The one for the Wise Guy is one of my faves!


Adera Orfanelli – Wolf’s Bone


For Ryx, hunting dinosaur bones is more than a scientific curiosity; it’s a way for him to connect with his people’s ancestors. But he isn’t the only member of the team with secrets. He knows Eli isn’t really a boy, and she doesn’t smell quite human. What he doesn’t know is that Eliza is a werewolf, and her past is about to catch up with them.


Linda Carroll-Bradd – On With the Show


Every Thanksgiving, Franzi Mueller returns to her hometown, Freedom Valley, to help with a musical show put on at the veteran’s hospital. After a decade of living in Houston, Franzi starts feeling nostalgic for the sense of community of her small Texas town. Too bad Mama has decided to play matchmaker and keeps pushing together Franzi and her ex-high school beau, Dietz Reinhardt. Local hardware store owner Dietz can see that her big city clothing designer job has worn Franzi down and he’s doing what he can to ease her load. Circumstances throw them together at every turn, and every glance and each touch ignites the old sparks. Can Franzi find what her creative spirit needs in Freedom Valley? Is time running out on this second chance for Dietz to win over her heart?

Kitty Bucholz – Little Miss Lovesick


Sydney Riley hears voices in her head…

Voices that keep her sane and voices that drive her crazy. The one thing they all agree on – forget Dirk the Jerk and move on.

So Sydney lets her friends drag her into the wilds of Northern Michigan where Little Miss Lovesick, the loudest voice in Sydney’s head, runs into – literally – the perfect man. Is hot fishing guide Matt Engel the man to vanquish heartbreak?

With the vacation flirtation behind her, Sydney is ready to start again. Soon after, however, a difficult – and must keep – client demands Sydney work with his new contractor. Yes, one and the same Matt Engel, hotter than ever and right here in town.

But when Matt’s past comes between them, Sydney wonders how to prevent another broken heart. As the rest of her life spirals out of control, she learns that sometimes a plan isn’t enough without friends to share the load.

Maybe together they can even help Little Miss Lovesick find what she’s been fishing for.

Lex Valentine – The Wise Guy, The Pixie Prince


Randall Wise is the quintessential good guy. However, all of his friends are married and he’s still single. Rand is positive that good guys finish last at love and decides he needs to change if he’s ever going to find the woman for him. Brenna Thorne is a klutzy but cute would be witch who moves in next door to Rand. Men always think of Brenna like a sister. They never see her as girlfriend or mate material. Brenna longs for a man of her own who sees her sexy side and all the love she has to give. A little magic from Rand’s godparents, a familiar who isn’t a familiar, and a host of well meaning, but surprising friends help Rand and Brenna see that all you need to find your mate is a heart that is open to love.

The Pixie Prince – BUY LINK, TRAILER

Underwear model Max Fever has a problem. He’s just become the Pixie Prince and his inheritance includes big golden wings that won’t let him sleep on his back. Max has to find a soft mattress or spend the rest of his days with a bruised behind.

An enigmatic waiter named Marty takes Max to club Carpe Noctem to meet a vampire who has a space foam mattress. Max falls in love with the mattress and its owner, vampire Bliss Wilde. Will the tragic pasts of Bliss’ brother and Max’s best friend become a roadblock to their bonding?

The Pixie Prince will be going out of contract in a few months. I’m really going to miss that cover by Cristine Griffin. *sigh* I’m still not sure what I’ll be doing with the story either. Probably cleaning it up some more, maybe lengthening it. Not sure if it will go indie or if I’ll give it to Pink Petal Books since they really have dibs on anything regarding the Darkworld. It’s all up in the air, but for now, the book is still out and if you don’t win you can still purchase it.

You know what do if you want to win these books! Leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time!

Happy Holidays!
