MORE EXCITING NEWS!

Our Christmas Anthology 'Christmas Romance' was reviewed by The Midwest Book Review and they loved it.

Read below.

 
 
 



KITTY'S CHRISTMAS HOPE PREVIEW!

I finished the first draft of book three in the Dreams Come True Series. Kitty's Christmas Hope!

Now off to my critique group for their wonderful input and then off to my publisher.

Here's a little preview:



Kitty Skinner meets the perfect guy, he's kind, considerate and sexy as hell. She hopes to spend her favorite holiday with him, Christmas Eve. The only problem is, Aaron treats her like his best friend, not the girlfriend she dreams of being. To make matters worse he’s found his perfect girl and wants Kitty to help plan their first date.

Aaron Tyler thinks Kitty is sweet, talented and someone he can settle down with, but believes he has to deceive her into believing he cares for someone else to win her heart.

Nothing goes as planned as one mishap after another prevents them from admitting their true feelings.

Can Kitty and Aaron take a leap of faith and reveal their true feelings before their friendship takes a beating and miss out on their perfect date—Christmas Eve?

If your still in the mood to read Christmas stories, check out Brenda's Christmas Desire.



Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Brendas-Christmas-Desire-Dreams-Come-ebook/dp/B00GLY8DR6/



Christmas approaches and Brenda has to decide if she’s going to let the past hold her prisoner for another year or if she can finally enjoy what Christmas used to mean to her—love.

DEA agent, John Smith knows the significance of December fifteenth to Brenda, but when the head of the Nuevo Cartel escapes federal prison he's forced to let her face the day without him, but not quite alone.

Can Daisy, a golden Labrador puppy, a huge sale on decorations at the hardware store, and a gift from her aunt restore her love of Christmas?


Excerpt:

December 2013

The weather forecast for the Western Washington area, specifically North Seattle, predicted a good five-to-six inches of snow. Brenda Houser watched the flakes float like cotton balls from the sky as she dipped a tortilla chip into a bowl of thick and chunky salsa and popped the morsel into her mouth.

Her boss, Corny Myers, tapped her pencil on Brenda's reception desk to the beat of The Little Drummer Boy, which streamed from the Green Hornet Investigations Bose speakers.

 "Hey, Brenda. I have bad eating habits but I've never started the day with chips and salsa. What's up?" Corny asked.

 "You know how I feel about all the holiday hoopla. I'd rather stick my head in the sand and pull it back out in January."

 "Do you really think Mexican food is going to make you feel better?"

 "Probably not, but a couple margaritas might help."

You can find Halo's Christmas Wish, (Book one in the series) here:

Book three in the series (Kitty's Christmas Hope) will be out early in 2014.

UNFORGETTABLE KISS REVIEW



Come check out this great new story by Angela Ford.

Available here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HG3XFIS?


What a great love story!, January 2, 2014


By
Sharon Kleve (WA)


This review is from: Unforgettable Kiss (Kindle Edition)

Another winner for Angela Ford. I read Closure and couldn’t put it down. Unforgettable Kiss was even better…

Meghan's past holds her prisoner from loving again, but when she experiences the perfect kiss while on vacation she can’t get the sexy Eric off her mind.

This is a well written romance that leaves you routing for Meghan to make the right choice—to love again.


Best Christmas ever!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I spent Christmas with my amazing family in Kauai. I swam with huge sea turtles, snorkeled with beautiful fish, ate and drank and was very merry!

Every morning at seven am we'd watch this incredible sunrise.


 


 
 
Today is my first day back to the day job and I'm having a hard time concentrating.
 
I might need another vacation...ha ha !
