Christmas Treats Blog Hop and Giveaway


Welcome, Christmas Treats Blog Hoppers!

Pull up a chair and I'll pour you some nog (with the good stuff, of course ;)and regale you with stories about billionaires and other fun-ness!


Christmas (or the week or so leading up to Christmas) is always crazy 'round these parts. I'm a bit of a procrastinator, so I usually wait until...right about now to do my shopping and packing lol. Basically, I turn myself into a nutcase, then somewhere along the way, it all falls together seamlessly. ;)

That doesn't leave too much time for reading unfortunately but this year, I'm about halfway done with Pretend Your Mine by Lucy Score (with plans to finish it this weekend, and then Christmas shop. Maybe.)

A Small Town Love Story

I only wanted to protect you...

Luke Garrison is a hometown hero, a member of the National Guard ready to deploy again. Strong, sweet, and sexy, he doesn't have a girlfriend and doesn't want one. When the wildly beautiful Harper stumbles into his life, though, he realizes that she's the perfect decoy. A fake girlfriend to keep his family off his back until he's out on another mission.

So what if a single bite of her lip sends his mind to wicked places? He can control himself. Can't he?

Harper was on her way to starting a new life... again. But something about Luke makes her want to settle down in this small town and make Luke's house a home. When his arms wrap around her like steel, she finally knows what it's like to feel safe. Protected.

One night of sleeping in the same bed turns into something much, much more... and soon Luke can't keep his mind off Harper's wide gray eyes, or his hands off of her luscious curves. He never thought he'd feel this way about a woman again. But he knows that he can't tell her the truth about his dark past, and she can't reveal to him what she's running from.

Anyway, this isn't a real relationship. It's only for a month. Only pretend. Until it isn't...

Omg. The way the characters pop off the page, the chemistry between Harper and Luke has practically melted my kindle (on several occasions)...it is a must read for romance fans. Luke Garrison is so alpha and down home and stubborn and HOT. Lord. Have. Mercy.

What are you guys reading during the holidays?

Jingle Book Blog Hop and Giveaway


First off, I want to say thanks for swinging by my page! Really excited about chatting with you all and sharing a bit of my Christmas quirks with you guys. :)

I'll dive right in.

Chocolate cake.


That's right -- gooey, moist, melt in your mouth chocolate cake. And not a conservative, this-is-our-first-date-so-give-me-a-itty-bitty-slice...I'm talking about a huge, calories be damned piece of cake.

Every Christmas, my mom cooks a handful of cakes for our Christmas feast...and a very special chocolate cake. As soon as it's bright enough outside to be considered morning, said chocolate cake is sliced, a big cup of milk or eggnog is poured, and we cozy up on the couch. That's one of our Christmas traditions...and definitely my favorite: breakfast for dessert on Christmas while we watch the twinkling lights on the tree.

How about you? What's your favorite Christmas tradition?
