Day 19: 30 Days of Christmas 2012

Well, here we are getting closer to Christmas and an explosion of holiday books coming your way here in my giveaway. Yesterday’s big winner is Urb! And the winner of the second Julia Michaels book is Sarah Kalaitzidis! Yay!

Today, I have books by Taryn Elliott, Chandra Ryan and me! Taryn’s book won’t be out for another day or two so hopefully the winner won’t mind waiting because oh, baby does it look like it’s a book that is worth waiting for! Chandra’s book is sexy and oh, man look at that cover! From me, since this is stacking up to be a Ellora’s Cave author day, a pair of paranormals! These are all MF but be warned, Runaway is actually MMF.

Taryn Elliott – Holiday Sparks


Darcy Tucker hates Christmas. Being lead supervisor at a department store shows her the very worst of humanity. When her holiday display is demolished, she turns for help to the least likely person she knows—her hot, tattooed tenant who seems to get off on the very idea of Christmas. Maybe she can get him to decorate the store and stop decorating her house.

Tattoo artist Ben Hartley may not look the part, but Christmas is his favorite holiday. When Darcy gets in a jam and reveals her vulnerable side, he finally gets to learn more about the sexy woman behind the cool façade.

Thrown in close quarters to fix her store, Ben and Darcy realize the only chilly thing between them is the temperature outside. One supremely hot kiss leads to a night full of passionate surprises. Now Ben has to show her that there’s more to life than work, and that the season of hope is full of sexy possibilities with or without a Christmas tree.

Chandra Ryan – Bond Betrayed


Isaac Marrow doesn’t care that Nikki Rathe is a seductress. She’s the only member of the Community who can help him get his sister Molly back from Nikki’s father, who holds the rest of their kind under his spell. But he doesn’t expect her to help willingly. Instead, he tricks her into giving up her blood, bonding her to him in an effort to compel her support.

Nikki could have told Isaac that bonding himself to a seductress was a foolish move, but he never asked. Now, a powerful lust ties them together, driving them both mad. Isaac is hot, but the desire is a distraction she doesn’t need. Nikki wants to free Molly and bring down her father just as much as Isaac, if not more. The Community banished her as a child while letting her power-hungry father grow stronger. But Isaac’s betrayal of her trust can’t go unpunished. And a seductress can deliver a powerful punishment.

Lex Valentine – Runaways, Mating


Werewolf Ranulf Verlaine and his longtime lover, vampire Griffin Rothschild, have sworn they will fight to stay together if either discovers another is their mate. When Ran meets beautiful vampire Dante Ducoin on a train from Prague to Paris, mating lust explodes between them and Ran forgets the pact. He forgets everything but sinking into and surrounding Dante, who is equally lost in Ran. Newly bonded, the pair run away to New York City.

Griffin chases after his lover, pulled by a metaphysical force. When he finds Ran and Dante, mating lust shifts their bond to a triumvirate. The three can’t keep their hands, or anything else, off one another. But lust isn’t everything. For the triumvirate to thrive, Dante must carve out a place between two men who have been lovers for years, Griffin must share the only man he’s ever loved with a woman, and Ranulf must balance his pack responsibilities with his love for his mates.


As Alpha, Roul Verlaine always looked out for his twin. When Ranulf flees to New York City with his new mates, Roul hires the Watcher Agency to check on him. All thoughts of his brother vanish when Roul meets the sexy owner of Watchers. Morgan Kale is a rare white werewolf, a lone wolf who sets Roul’s senses on fire. His wolf instantly wants her and Roul can’t resist her. She bests him at chess and martial arts and is the fiercest, most perfect lover he’s ever known. And he doesn’t want to leave her.

Morgan knows instantly she and Roul are mates even if he hasn’t figured it out yet. His seduction overrides her common sense and yearning heart. The sex is mindblowing and they even get along outside the bedroom. But Roul is in town for only three days, and Morgan must decide whether to tell him they are mates…or let him walk out of her life forever.
