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?


"Do you surrender?" I repeated, dropping my cuff links in the jewelry tray near the door. "Will you trust me with your body? With your submission?"

Sophia Slater is dying for her big break. An expose on Hush, an elite, invitation-only BDSM club that boasts a member's list full of the rich and famous, is her way in…she just has to pretend she's a submissive.

When she snags a job at the club as a hostess, she begins plotting the story that will put her name on the map. But her lie lands her at sexy Dominant Desmond O'Connell's feet, and Sophia is thrust into his dark, dangerous world…

Red (The Safeword Series: Book One) is the first book in a three part series.

Purchase: | Amazon | B&N | iTunes | Kobo |



Will it hurt?"

The leather strips of the flogger danced across my skin. There had to be something seriously wrong with me because I wanted him to say yes.

I wanted to say green, more, and we hadn't even begun.

"Sin," he breathed into my ear, "I made you a promise...and I'm a man of my word." His voice darkened. "I'm gonna make you scream."

Sophia Slater is in the perfect position to write the story that will jumpstart her career. She's a new hire at Hush, a BDSM club where the rich and famous can live out their wildest fantasies. Her plan to infiltrate Hush went off without a hitch--until she spends a night with the man in the black mask.

Desmond O'Connell is still reeling from the loss that inspired him to create Hush in the first place. Attachments are dangerous, and falling for a submissive? Insane. The crazy thing is, he can't help but fall for the one submissive who wants more. Who wants all of him...

Yellow (The Safeword Series: Book Two) is the second book in a three part series.

Purchase: | Amazon | B&N | iTunes | Kobo |


Sophia Slater has been handed the story of her career--Desmond O'Connell, the billionaire star of 'America's Chef', is the owner of the elite BDSM club Hush. The trouble is, she could care less. But when she reveals her true identity, Desmond wants nothing to do with her.

Desmond O'Connell can't believe that the first woman he trusts with the whole truth has been lying to him all along. She insists that her feelings for him are real, but how can he trust anything she says when it's reveled that she works for the most vicious tabloid in town?

Green is the riveting conclusion of the Safeword Series.

  21. I'm a year-round shopper because I'm averse to big mall/market crowds. There are entirely too many elbows in those places, haha.

    I'm looking to finish my series marathon of Hostile Operations Team by Lynn Raye Harris. I just started the first boxed set. If I have more time, I plan on a Hostage Rescue Team (Kaylea Cross) readathon. Finished the first boxed set last week. I'm on a romantic suspense kick, obviously. :)

    Thank you for the chance! Happy holidays!

  30. 2 questions. 1. Do you remember what you did for your 21st birthday? I'm about to celebrate mine and I'm asking everyone that. There's some interesting questions. 2. Why romance genre specifically? Was it something you always enjoyed reading or have you always been able to spin a good love story?
