Day 6 – 30 Days of Christmas 2017

Today is a really special day for me because the two authors who are giving away books have brand new releases today! But first, hubs drew the winner for Day 5 and it’s Patricia Nelson! WOOT!

I’m really happy to showcase these two authors today and to bring you their books. First is my good friend Tara Lain, who always generously shows up for my holiday giveaway and the second author is RJ Scott who is here for the first time! Both authors have new releases today so let’s take a look at what they have to offer!

Tara Lain,  as everyone knows, writes the Beautiful Boys of Romance. She has this great series Balls to the Walls and today Dreamspinner is re-releasing SNOW BALLS! This is a great book and the whole series is pretty amazing. You can always count on Tara for romance, romance and more romance without major angst (my trademark apparently.) My particular favorite in this series just happens to be FIRE BALLS and I’m mentioning it because Tara is offering up the choice of the first 5 Balls books (Fire Balls, Volley Balls, Beach Balls, FAST Balls, and High Balls) to today’s winner!

Here’s a link to Tara’s blog where you can find out more about the Balls series.

A Pinnacle of Balls — Get Ready! #TaraLain #BallstotheWall

Meanwhile, I’m going to share my favorite Fire Balls’ blurb and the buy link for both it and the new release Snow Balls.

Fire Balls

Renowned artist Rodney Mansfield stands five foot six, has pink hair, six earrings, a black belt in karate—and a desperate yearning for firefighter Hunter Fallon. But Rod, the Runtback of Notre Dame, knows he’ll never land the beautiful “straight gay” guy, so Rod musters his altruism and helps his more masculine friend Jerry attract Hunter. As if a broken heart wasn’t enough, Rod saves Hunter from a firehouse homophobe—humiliating Hunter in front of his dad!

Hunter lives a dream life—his father’s dream. While he’d like to teach literature in college, read poetry in the sun, and find a strong guy to top him, he fights fires for his dad. Hunter hates flamboyant guys like Rodney. So why can’t he resist him? Maybe it’s time to admit this is one flame he has no desire to put out.

Next up is a great holiday book from RJ Scott! I’m so excited about this one! I LOVE holiday books!

RJ Scott is the bestselling romance author of over 100 romance books. She writes emotional stories of complicated characters, cowboys, millionaire, princes, and the men and women who get mixed up in their lives. RJ is known for writing books that always end with a happy ever after. She lives just outside London and spends every waking minute she isn’t with family either reading or writing.

The last time she had a week’s break from writing she didn’t like it one little bit, and she has yet to meet a bottle of wine she couldn’t defeat.

Love Happens Anyway

Hiring a boyfriend for Christmas; what can go wrong?

Derek is facing yet another Christmas where his life feels out of control. He has a new career that doesn’t feel like his, and parents who would just love to see him settled down. All he needs is a temporary buffer for the parties he has to attend, and for his parents to leave him alone. Enter, Luke.

Luke is twenty-thousand dollars short for the renovations on Halligans; his family’s bar in New York’s Financial District. A favor for a buddy has him agreeing to play the part of boyfriend to a guy with more money than sense.

But when the spirit of Christmas works its magic on the two men, and they begin to fall for each other, Derek runs scared, and Luke needs space.

It doesn’t matter what obstacles you throw in the way of love, or how much you run in the other direction, because, when you’re least expecting it, whether you want it or not, love happens anyway.


And just because I can, I’m tossing in my bestselling dragon shifters!

Fire Season

Black dragon Holden Antaeus isn’t looking for a mate. His life is filled with family, work, and dating. Women adore him and he’s never short of offers for sex, but a relationship isn’t something he’s interested in. When Holden’s brother Sean hires a new executive for Antaeus International, Holden’s whole world, and everything he’s ever believed about himself, is blown to bits. Garret Renquist is a green dragon, intelligent, witty, bi-sexual, and hot for Holden. Despite the fact that Holden is positive he’s heterosexual, the moment he meets Garret, something happens inside him. What follows is a journey through stereotypes and ingrained beliefs as Holden struggles with the fact that his destined mate is a man.


And there you have it! One winner will get RJ’s book, my book, and the choice of Balls books by Tara! What a great line up of books! Make sure you comment on this post by midnight Pacific time (watch the clock people and post on the right one!) for a chance to win all three. And come back every day this month for more great books you can win from authors like Lucy Lennox, Aimee Nicole Walker, Elizabeth Varlet, Annabelle Jacobs, AE Wasp, Beth Bolden, Layla Reyne, EM Denning and more!

Happy Holidays!
