Day 24: 30+ Days of Christmas 2013


The winner of yesterday’s holiday books is Elaing8! Congrats!

The books up for grabs today are just awesome! More holiday MM goodness from Cassandra Gold, Keira Andrews and LE Franks.  I haven’t had a chance to read Keira and LE’s books but Cassandra’s is sweet and hot and oh, so good! It’s made it onto my list of favorite holiday stories.

My holiday story Christmas Catch is another of the Forbes Ranch holiday stories. Each one of the Forbes Ranch stories tells how a wish on the Christmas star on Christmas Eve helped bring two lovers together. The hopefulness of my heart wrought each of these stories as they were not all written at a good time in my life. I guess they’re a testament to my long held belief in miracles. Even if the miracles don’t happen for me, I still believe they are possible for some.

Mitchell Caulfield’s soul is as wounded as his body once was. The former Air Force pilot, forced to retire after being shot down over Afghanistan suffers from PTSD. Working as a bodyguard to supermodel Riley Forbes, Mitch accompanies the model and his wife home to the ranch for Christmas. There he meets Riley’s cousin Grayson, a former rodeo star who now runs Forbes Ranch. Can the magic of Christmas bring two men from diverse backgrounds together? And will they open their hearts to the possibility of love?

James Hastings is having a bad week. All he wants to do is buy a six-pack and spend an evening moping. Instead, he wins a week long trip to Hawaii, thanks to a young man at the liquor store.

Tattoo and piercing artist Travis Barton is surprised when the cute guy he helped out wins a trip and invites him to come along. Still, he’s not about to pass up a free trip to Hawaii.

Travis’s idea of a no-strings fling goes against James’s nature, but it seems like a great way to make the trip even better. Then their hot, uninhibited nights together start to blur into something more, and James starts to imagine Christmas ever after — Travis, with strings attached.

This Christmas, actor Ryan Drake is pining. He may get to kiss gorgeous Cary Holloway on the set of their hit TV show, Space Academy, but he knows it’ll never happen in real life. Charming Cary–the son of Hollywood royalty–is straight, as evidenced by his starlet girlfriend. But Christmas is a time for unexpected gifts, and Cary accepts Ryan’s invitation to leave the palm trees behind and spend the holiday with his family at their cabin in the Great White North.

Amid the snow and mistletoe, Ryan struggles to keep his longing under wraps. Little does he know, Cary wrestles with his own unspoken desires and his very identity. Surrounded by family and holiday joy, their warm friendship deepens. Will these two co-stars have the courage to brave Hollywood pressures and take their romance offscreen–or will it be only in their dreams?

Kris Hamilton escaped the rat race in LA to live his dream of owning an art studio and making snow globes in a Christmas-themed town in northern Minnesota. But life in a tiny town isn’t as peaceful as advertised, and being treated like an outsider is making Kris’s Tourette’s flare up. When he inadvertently offends Tyr Tollefson—a beautiful blond giant of a man—Kris is ready to chuck it all. But he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Tyr’s cousin Bun, who shows them the magic of Christmas and gives them both a lesson in love and acceptance.

What a great bunch of books! For a chance to win all of these, leave a comment on this post by midnight Pacific time (3 am Eastern.) If you happen to have read them all, leave a comment about that and you could win an audiobook copy of Broken Bonds.

Have a great day!
