Holiday Traditions, a New Release & an Awesome GIVEAWAY. Check it out!

It’s all about the Children
If you’d asked me three years ago who decorates my Christmas tree, I’d tell you I did—alone, as I had every years since I don’t remember how long. This year, I put the trees together and that was it. I had my four wonderful grandchildren over to decorate the tree. That’s right. I entrusted my delicate decorations, some over seventy-five years old, to kids aged 9, 8, 7 and 5. Only one item got broken, a green glass ball that was maybe 40 years old, but really had nor sentimental value. Do you know what? The trees have never looked nicer.
Did I mention I have close to 400 ornaments divided between two trees, one upstairs in the living room window, and the other downstairs by the fireplace? The tree upstairs looks lovely especially with the lights in the window and the large manger under it, but the tree we see most is the one in the family room because we spend our evenings there.
I have always loved Christmas, not because of the gifts but because of the joy on the faces of children. For many years, that magic was missing. Our children were long past believing in Santa clause, and Christmas just wasn’t the same. We had stockings, exchanged gifts, ate and drank way too much, but the fun was gone.
Enter grandchildren, God’s reward for not killing your own offspring during those trying teen years. Once there are babies, everything changes. The magic is back. It starts with the arrival of Santa in the annual nighttime parade and doesn’t end until the last gift is unwrapped. In our tradition, it includes a visit from the jolly old elf himself the week before Christmas, a chance for all the members of my family to get together—ten children ages 5-18 and over 20 adults to share the look of wonder on the faces of the kids as each one sits on Santa’s knee for a little pre-Christmas treat. As well, at some point in December, we’ll go to Upper Canada Village to see the lights in the Alight at Night, watch the grandkids participate in the annual Sunday School Christmas Pageant, contribute to the needy with offerings for White Gift Sunday, and attend Christmas Eve service followed by watching the definitive version on A Christmas Carol with Alistair Sim, cuddled up by the fireplace dinking spiced and laced egg nog.

Since Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October, Christmas morning means getting the turkey ready for the traditional Christmas Day meal. We open our stockings first and then our gifts and wait for the arrival of the kids whose eyes light up when they see what Grandma bought and hear them tell all about the wonderful things Santa left under the tree.
Christmas is about the magic and laughter, but sadly, for many it’s also a time of sorrow. This may be the first year without a loved one, a job may have been lost, or someone diagnosed with an illness that may or may not be curable. It’s a time when faith as well as a tight budget are tested, and my heart goes out to those who find this time of year painful. May their belief system bring them the comfort they need as the end of the calendar year nears.
In Coming Home, Alana goes home for the first time in ten years because of her three-year-old niece and her mother’s determination to give her a traditional Christmas to remember. After all, it’s all about the children.  She dreads her return to Chance, never expecting the Christmas miracle of love she receives. May the holiday season brighten your life, restore your energy, and bring you peace this year.

Book Blurb Coming Home, Book One, Taking a Chance on Love

Home is where the heart is.
Motorcycle riding, attorney Alana Stewart is a far cry from the shy, teenager who left Chance determined never to look back. Family obligations force her to return to the town that only holds bad memories for her. A stop at her former sanctuary brings an unexpected surprise...the new manager just might be what she needs to get her through the holidays. When sexy, leather-clad Alana walks into the bookstore, Connor Tate, has a feeling he may be in for the ride of his life. Despite the fact that their lives are headed in different directions, they are drawn to one another. Connor is determined to prove to Alana that Chance isn’t the place she remembers, but will his efforts fail when she discovers he hasn’t told her the whole truth about himself? Can they trust each other enough to take a chance on love?

About the Author: Misty Matthews
Misty Matthews is a newly formed writing partnership between Susanne Matthews and Misty Cail. These authors have never met and the book was created by grace and virtue of email and Internet chats. It's a true Twenty-first century miracle.
Misty and Susanne met in an online Facebook chat group back in December, 2012 and have become fast friends and partners. Misty, the plot genius, had the idea for the book, but found it hard to do the research and polishing necessary for the story. Susanne loved the premise of the story and offered to handle that aspect of it in partnership with her. The name seemed a natural choice. The rest as they say is history.

Ten minutes later, Alana opened the door and noted her mother had been busy putting the final touches on her Christmas wonderland. The house was decorated more or less the way it had been for as long as she could remember, and the sense of nostalgia she experienced surprised her. Santas of various sizes, shapes, and styles posed in corners, wreaths hung on the walls, and fake snow—not a flake out of place—lay under the miniature Dickens Christmas village which had grown substantially in size since the last time she’d seen it. A short, white, wooden fence surrounded the village, no doubt to keep curious little fingers from playing with the breakable figurines.
Christmas had always been her mother’s favorite time of year, and she loved all the glitz and decorations that went with it. None of this had come to Austin when the family had come for the holiday. Alana noticed a number of familiar items as she moved through the room, but there were several new things too. A waved of guilt flooded her. What a sacrifice it must have been for her mother to leave everything behind for the sterile confines of Alana's condo. A fake, designer tree, no matter how expensive, didn’t stand a chance against all this.
The empty corner of the room had been cleaned and awaited the tree, a real pine, not an artificial one. Christmas Eve, the whole family would gather to decorate it together. It was a Stewart tradition, one she’d tried to continue in Texas, but it hadn’t been the same. Pine-scented spray couldn’t compare with a natural evergreen’s aroma.
When she’d been a child, once the tree had been decorated, they’d all gather in the kitchen to bake and ice cookies. Afterward, her father would sit down to read A Christmas Carol, until she and her sister, buried in a mountain of blankets and pillows on the floor, fell asleep. Melody always crashed after the Ghost of Christmas Past, but she usually managed to make it through the Ghost of Christmas Present. That particular tradition, the one nearest and dearest to her heart, was one she hoped she could persuade her father to revive this year.
How could I have forgotten all this? God, I hope I’m not turning into a female version of Ebenezer Scrooge, putting my job above everything else. The thought sobered her.
Grasping what she’d ignored selfishly over the last few years, Alana realized why her mom had insisted she come home for Isabelle’s first real Christmas, one the child would understand and remember. She wanted her grand-daughter to experience a traditional Stewart Christmas with all the bells and whistles that made it great. Letting the memories wash over her, Alana thought about the past. And when the scene shifted to include images of future Christmases with Isabelle, she knew she couldn’t ask the family to give them up.
It would be wrong to deprive that beautiful little girl of what she herself cherished.



I'd like to thank Misty for joining us today. Just leave a comment and tell us about your holiday traditions with your email address on this post and you're entered for a chance to win an e-copy of the book.

Misty will announce her winner on Monday Dec. 22

$0.99 cents for a limited time! All Romance ~ Kindle ~ NOOK ~ iBooks ~ Kobo

A Cowboy’s Christmas Wish by Sorcha Mowbray
When rancher Ford Grayson saunters out of Melissa Adams’ past and into her bar, she’s determined to take him for a ride and kick him to the curb. Payback’s a bitch. But, the cowboy is determined to make his very own Christmas wish come true.

Sorcha Mowbray is a mild mannered office worker by day…okay, so she is actually a mouthy, opinionated, take charge kind of gal who bosses everyone around; but she definitely works in an office. At night she writes romance so hot she sets the sheets on fire! Just ask her slightly singed husband.

She is a long time lover of historical romance, having grown up reading Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught. Then she discovered Thea Devine and Susan Johnson. Holy cow! Heroes and heroines could do THAT? From there, things devolved into trying her hand at writing a little smexy. Needless to say, she liked it and she hopes you do too!

Just’s Desserts by Rachel Kenley
Dessert as foreplay? Justine saves her passion for the desserts she creates. Adam pours his focus into work. Together, something is going to melt.

Rachel Kenley is a multi-published author who loves reading, coffee and chocolate, and considers herself an excellent retail therapist. She believes in embracing the power of passion and the part of a woman’s power that lies in her sexuality. She writes in a variety of genres, including contemporary, paranormal and retold fairy tales, depending on what suits the characters who live in her head.

The characters in her life include her husband, two sons, family, and a group of writer friends she would be completely lost without. A Jersey girl at heart, she now lives in New England where apparently spring is a myth and winter lasts too long. She is grateful to be living the writer’s life that has always been her dream.

A Demon’s Gift by Jocelyn Dex
Cordelia, a demon hunter trainee who daydreams of Christmas, fights to resist Argoth, the sex demon, who inflames her desire and reveals a truth that turns her world upside down.

Jocelyn was born in Iowa and currently resides in hot-as-hell Texas. She shares her home with her very own 6’4″ alpha male and varying numbers of spoiled cats and dogs. Teaching one of her dogs to file his nails is one of her all-time favorite accomplishments.

She thinks dragonflies are awesome, spiders are creepy and it’s rumored that she sleeps with a machete by her bed in case zombies attack in the middle of the night.

Jocelyn loves to paint, loves to read, and loves to write sizzling erotic romance about yummy demons that would make your momma blush.

Furry Christmas by Sotia Lazu
Alice’s lonely holidays take an interesting turn when a stray dog walks into her life. Little does she know he could be her Prince Charming, if only she believed in magic.

Sotia loves romances with a twist and urban fantasy novels, always with vivid erotic elements. Her favorite characters to write are not conventional hero-material at first glance, and she enjoys making them fight for their happiness.

Sotia shares her life and living quarters with her husband, their son, and two rescue dogs, one of which may be part-pony. Sappy movies make her bawl like a baby, and she wishes she could take in all the stray dogs in the world. Also, she hates mornings!

Holiday Bliss by Leigh Ellwood
Two years after Hurricane Sandy, panther shifter Sheila Houlihan has finally rebuilt her home in the shore town of Bliss, New Jersey. She looks forward to her first Christmas there, if only Jonah will finish with the interior painting. Jonah, however, is interested in being more than Sheila’s handyman.

Leigh Ellwood is an award-winning author of erotica and erotic romance fiction. Following the release of her first novel, Truth or Dare, in 2004, Leigh has since written several novels, novella, and short stories. She is an EPIC Award winner and has been nominated for many reviewers awards for her works.

Leigh writes M/M, F/F, and other pairings of erotic and romance, and also writes mystery under another name.

To Capture a Yeti by Eva Lefoy
An ambitious reporter is determined to prove to the world Yetis exist, even at the cost of her life. But when she’s confronted with the truth, will she choose fame and fortune or keep the secret and the man she desires all to herself?

Eva Lefoy writes and reads all kinds of romance, and is a certified Trekkie. She’s also terribly addicted to chocolate, tea, and hiking. One of these days, she’ll figure out the meaning of life, quit her job, and go travel the galaxy. Until then, she’s writing down all her dirty thoughts for the sake of future explorers.

Longest Night Loving by Daisy Banks
Cursed elf Miles has waited for centuries in the hope a woman will free him from the curse binding him to this house. Will his beautiful visitor pass the test and prove she is the one who he can love?

Daisy Banks writes sensual and spicy romance in the Historical, Paranormal and Fantasy genres. An obsessive writer Daisy is passionate about her stories. Her focus is to offer the best tale she can to readers. Daisy is married, with two grown up sons. She lives with her husband in a converted chapel in Shropshire, England. Antiques and collecting entertain Daisy when she isn’t writing, she has also occasionally been known to make a meal that doesn’t stick to the pan.

Caging the Wolf by Sofia Grey
Jessie has fallen in love with the perfect guy, Levi, but there’s one tiny problem. The blue-eyed hunk only exists in her dreams.

I’m a 40-on-the-outside / 20-on-the-inside girl with a passion for the simple things in life. As long as they include wine, chocolate and rock music, I’m good. When I’m not either herding project managers (at work), cats (at home) or cub scouts (in what passes for spare time…) I’m curled up with my Kindle or my laptop. To me, writing is as addictive as reading and I can’t manage unless I have both.


Sounds like some great reading. Thank you, Eva Lefoy for sharing with us today!

Check out Glitch by Olivia Linden & Le Teisha Newton...

Blog Tour
Glitch (Corporate Hitman Vol. 1)
By Olivia Linden & LeTeisha Newton
Dec 1st – Dec 7th

Liam Gallagher, AKA Glitch, is the brain behind a trio of corporate criminals. Formerly known as one of the most notorious hackers in cyberspace, he now works to keep Hawk Global Industries one step ahead of its competitors. 

But there's a catch. Being blackmailed to do what he does best isn't how Glitch plans to spend the rest of his life, and his partners in crime feel the same way. When an old flame crosses his path unexpectedly, Glitch and company learn that betrayal is on the horizon for them. It's time to put a plan in motion and reclaim their freedom, once and for all. Things are going to get pretty nasty along the way, even a little sexy, but it's all in a day's work for a Corporate Hitman.

Amazon US   

Olivia Linden, a native New Yorker, was raised between Queens and San Antonio, TX. Currently living in Florida with her 10 year-old son, she decided it was time to follow her dreams of becoming a full time author. Her creative itch began when her elementary school principal posted one of her stories in the halls of her school. She was only seven at the time, but old enough to understand how integral writing would be to her future. From that moment on, reading and writing became her two greatest passions.

Olivia is a newbie to the industry, but she hasn’t stopped writing since she found her literary voice all those years ago. Jaded Hearts, her first published novel, mixes her big personality, with a sexy yet humorous tone. It is her philosophy that laughter is essential to making it through even the toughest situations.

Find your passion with Jaded Hearts by Olivia Linden.

LeTeisha Newton is the author of a plethora of novels ranging from hot Interracial Erotica, Paranormal biters, Fantasy, and Urban Fantasy genres. She’s known for her extensive knowledge of shifter cultures, even outside of the generic werewolves and vampires, crazy world-building, and making shapeshifters feel like they are living right next door. That has led to her being dubbed the Shifter Queen. Some of her series include the best-selling Claimed and Taken Series.
