It was a cold December eve, some say the coldest in decades, and a blizzard warning was in effect. It was the Friday before Christmas and most of the other workers of Kennedy and Crane had already left for the Christmas holiday weekend.


Samantha looked at the clock and groaned inwardly. It was after 8 o’clock and her boss was in an extra foul mood even for her.

“Shouldn’t you be getting home to put on that awesome Chanel dress you bought for the big night?” She asked.

Macy spun around enraged, and Samantha sunk back.


Macy’s dark brows knit together and her brown eyes looked nearly black with the size of her pupils. She ran her hands through her short dark hair and then stared at Samantha with disbelief on her face.


“I got a text from Todd an hour ago. He’s gone off to LA with some friends for Christmas!”


Samantha’s mouth fell open. “What, why?” She stopped herself. “I’m sure he has a good reason Macy.”


Macy snorted. “Yeah, good reasons usually don’t come in a text. I’m losing him Sam.”


Macy plopped down in her chair and stared out the large picture window of her sleek office, and tapped her long manicured nails on her desk like a woodpecker.


“Says he’ll call me when he gets back…in a month.”


Samantha’s groaned inwardly. Poor Macy, it looked like she was getting the ultimate big let down. Broken up with at Christmas. No engagement celebration after all.

“Here’s a piece of mail you didn’t get.” Sam offered up happily as she placed it on Macy’s desk.

“Send it back.” Macy said dully without turning.

Samantha continued hopefully. “It’s not the annual Christmas invite from your mother Macy, that one is always in a red envelope. I always send that back. This is something different.”


Samantha looked at the pretty Tiffany blue colored envelope.


“It’s addressed to you personally, not the company.”


Macy cocked her head to the side intrigued.


Sam rushed on eager to bring some sort of happiness to her boss. “Maybe it’s a love letter from Todd with two tickets to Paris for when he gets back?”


Macy let out a big huff and gazed out the window at the oncoming storm. They both knew that wasn’t the case. Todd’s last minute text was just a breakup in disguise.


But if not Todd then who? Macy really didn’t have any close friends that would send her a Christmas card. Anyone that did know her at all, knew she abhorred Christmas. Too much money being spent in the name of sentimentality and tricky marketers as her father always said.

Macy waved her hand without looking back at Samantha as if she were a servant.
“Read it.”
Samantha scanned the letter, then suddenly, caught her breath and brought her hand to her heart.


“Macy.”


Something in Samantha’s tone made Macy spin her chair around.


“What?”


“Its from a friend of your mothers, a Ms. Carol Landers.”


“You have got to be kidding me!” Macy threw her hands up in the air.


Now my mother is having her friends beg me to come home and visit her? How utterly selfish!”


She shook her head in disbelief. “What is it with my mother? She ruins my life and then she stalks me! Can’t she see no matter how many times she begs me to come home for Christmas - I’m not going to Kissing Bridge to see her?”


Samantha swallowed uncomfortably and croaked out, “I’m so sorry Macy. But this letter says that your mother passed away yesterday, and you’re the only relative left to claim her body.”


She looked up sadly and met Macy’s stunned eyes.


“You have to go home to Kissing Bridge.”

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

 

 

Keren Hughes lives in the UK and is an avid bookworm. She fondly remembers the days where she would lie in her bedroom away from distraction and get lost in the world of make believe. Her first real memory of reading something she fell in love with was The Hobbit. In her teenage years, she became addicted to Point Horror books like RL Stine's The Boyfriend, but she also enjoyed light Summer reads like What Katy Did and What Katy Did Next.

 

Over the years she has come to realize that she is a bit of an OCD freak about books. They have to be in perfect condition without the slightest bit of damage.
She has been a book reviewer for the last few years and a book hoarder for a LOT longer. You can NEVER have too many books! Her shelves are bulging and overflowing but she always wants "just one more book".

 

Keren had her first book published by Limitless Publishing in November 2013. It's a YA Paranormal Romance novel called Stolen. Her second book was published with LP in May 2014. This time, an NA Contemporary Romance called Nothing Like The First Time.

 

She couldn't have been more surprised when NLTFT appeared on the Amazon Best Seller list. That was a dream come true.

 

Keren is currently working on more NA Contemporary Romances for you to fall in love with.

Her high school teacher saw her potential and submitted a short story, that K. L. had written for class, to a local literary publication. The story was not only published but won an award for best short story. Knowing that someday she wanted to become a writer, K. L. received her BA in English from Salisbury State University.

 

K. L. Ramsey currently resides in West Virginia (Go Mountaineers!). She lives with hunky scientist, two now not so little people, and six fur babies. In her spare time, she likes to read romance novels, attend WVU football games and drink wine with girlfriends.

Hello, READERS! Today we have Katherine Moore visiting & she’s going to tell us all about her new cozy holiday romance (IT IS ON SALE) and just in time for the holidays! She’s also going to tell readers 5 Books Delia (character from Holiday Hijinks) 5 books doesn’t recommend people Buy for Christmas and her Best Pick for the Season!

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Holiday Hijinks
Halliday Theater #1
by Katherine Moore
Genre: Cozy Holiday Romance

 

 

It’s Christmas, and this year Emily Halliday is trying something new at the struggling revival movie theater she runs for her great-grandmother. After all, how many times can you show It’s a Wonderful Life?

 

Emily was hoping to make a little profit on “Holiday Hijinks,” her “counter-programming Christmas” event. What she never expected—plot twist—is that an unexpected guest will turn her own life into a romantic comedy.

 

Holiday Hijinks is the first in a new series of cozy romances set in the small Pacific Northwest town of Silver Birch, Washington. A short read (15K) for a busy time, Holiday Hijinks introduces a whole new cast of characters while bringing back “cameos” from the “Meredith Manor Hotel” books, which are also set in Silver Birch.

 

If you love movies and food and romance as cozy as flannel jammies, Holiday Hijinks is the Christmas read for you.

#2


The first person I told about my plans for the Halliday Holiday Hijinks, after Becca, was Max Hopkirk.

 

“You’ll need some guest stars,” Max had said when I ran into him at the Meredith’s “Haunted Hotel” party in October, “to add to the marquee value.”

 

Max was a semi-retired English actor who lived at Meredith Manor Hotel between engagements. I’d seen him do the one-man show A Christmas Carol at the hotel’s “Christmas Experience” the year before and had fallen completely in love with him even though he was almost forty years older than me and gay.

 

He’d been totally charming when I’d introduced myself and happily accepted my offer to host a Valentine’s Day screening of the artsy horror movie, Heart of a Devil, a Hammer-style 70s film in which he’d played a vampire count.

 

Max had brought little foil-wrapped chocolate hearts to distribute at the screening, then had delighted all the attendees with his gossipy stories of what went on behind the scenes during the movie’s filming. I’d finally had to chase everyone out of the theater so I could go to upstairs to bed.

 

Nella was crazy about Max. She had once gone to a Meredith Hotel Halloween costume party dressed as Gloria Swanson escorted by Max as William Holden and their Sunset Boulevard tag team had won “best costume.”

 

I think she would have been happy with an “all Max, all the time” schedule of guest appearances. If he hadn’t been so in demand on the Shakespeare festival circuit and unavailable much of the year due to Meredith Manor Hotel events, I think he’d have been happy to oblige.

 

Nella was delighted to hear Max had agreed to act as Master of Ceremonies for the movie marathon. So was I. It would take a lot of pressure off me.

 

I told Max that as soon as I had a firm lineup of the films—all the ticket holders got to vote on what we’d be screening—I’d consult with him. Max being Max, though, had phoned his agent and asked her who they had on their roster who might like to take part in a “film festival.” He must have made our little revival house event sound like a Pacific Northwest version of Sundance because the next thing I knew, I got a call from a woman in Los Angeles confirming that “the hottest young director in town” would be happy to lend his exalted presence to the Halliday Holiday Hijinks this Christmas. “And Emily, by ‘hottest,’ I do mean he is hot,” she’d added.

 

Got it.

 

“He is pretty hot,” Delia said when I showed her the director’s picture.

 

“Yeah,” I said, “if you like the broody, Byronic type.”

 

Delia looked at the picture again. “Who doesn’t?”

 

And that’s how Zachary “Zac Attack” Orwell ended up the main event at what Becca was calling the “Triple H party.”

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Katherine Moore tells readers Delia’s Recommendations on what 5 Books NOT to Buy for Christmas & her Best Pick for the Season!


One of the main characters in Holiday Hijinks is Delia, owner of Silver Birch Books, a used bookstore located next to the Halliday Theater. When shoppers come into the store looking for books to stuff into stockings at Christmas, these are the books she steers them away from and why:

 

 

The Littlest Angel by Charles Tazewell

 

For some reason, Grandmothers always want to buy this one. The “Angel” in the title fools them. Originally written in the 30s as a radio script, Tazewell’s book was first published in 1946. It became an instant inspirational classic and remains in print more than seventy years later. But the book is about a dead kid trying to deal with being an angel. A dead kid.

 

 

Marley & Me by John Grogan

 

Most editions of this book feature a photograph of an adorable yellow lab puppy. (And let’s face it, few dogs are as adorable as yellow labs.) The reader will fall in love with the mischievous animal and then he dies. Marley dies!!! You might as well buy a copy of Old Yeller or Where the Red Fern Grows.

 

 

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

 

So you want to find something for your niece who’s begun publishing poetry in obscure literary journals and you want to show your support. (Because most people are telling her she might as well quit school, take any job she can find, and write her poetry without four years of student debt hanging over her head.) This is not the inspirational read she needs.

 

 

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

 

Shel Silverstein was a cartoonist and song writer and story teller whose children’s books were always packaged as if he was the poor man’s Dr. Seuss. This story about a tree who loves a little kid so much it gives everything it has is meant as a sweet tale of love and devotion but the little kid is a selfish brat who never thinks of returning the affection. It’s kind of depressing.

 

 

I’ll Always Love You by Hans Wilhelm

 

This book should be subtitled: Don’t be fooled by the cover, this is a sad story about a kid who loves his dog and the dog dies. The end. It’s like a warm-up for reading Marley & Me. If you’re going to write a book about a dying dog, you should at least give it a title like Cynthia Rylant’s Dog Heaven so you know what you’re getting into.

 

 

Delia’s #1 Pick for the Season

 

 

If you want a short book that will give you all the Christmas warmth and holiday spirit you can handle, the book to buy is: The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson. It’s packaged as a kids’ book but adults will appreciate the humor and the hijinks too, as well as the underlying message of inclusion and tolerance.

Book Description:

 

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.

 

No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays. Those visiting the world for the first time will understand why Chicago Tribune called it “simply superb.”

 

Grab this book and return to the world of the Dark Forgotten. Santa Claws is waiting!

“Don’t you want to go see Santa Claws?” Errata Jones asked in her husky, teasing voice.

 

“Meh,” Perry Baker replied, still grumpy at the prospect of crowds and gift-giving decisions. Plus, it was cold, gray, and rainy—a typical December day in the Pacific Northwest.

 

“Where’s your boundless holiday spirit?” She turned into the parking lot outside the Fairview Sports and Recreation Center. It was the final day of the Yuletide Holiday Market, an arts and crafts event by and for the local supernatural community. “Counting today, there’s only three shopping days till Christmas.”

 

“I really hope you’re not going to make me sit on Santa’s knee.”

 

“I don’t think so, darling. That would be weird, even for us.”

 

Errata swung her Jaguar coupe into the last parking space, beating out a massive pickup by a whisker. The truck made a sound like a startled dinosaur as it lurched to a stop on the frosty pavement. Turning off the Jaguar’s ignition, Errata smoothed her chin-length, jet-black hair, then glanced in the rear-view mirror, looking pleased with herself. Perry twisted in his seat to see the pickup driver turn a Christmassy scarlet and lurch off.

 

 

Perry willed his heart to resume its normal rhythm. Errata was a werecougar, and there were reasons cats shouldn’t drive. Werewolves like him were another matter.

Wolves appreciated order, including stop signs. Cats did things because they could—like pester him into going to this stupid craft fair.

 

That’s what he got for befriending a feline. He cast her a sidelong look, taking in her high cheekbones and smooth, golden skin. It was all he could do not to reach over and stroke her hair, but that would be crossing a boundary. She’d made it clear from the start that cats walked alone.

 

Errata finished preening and gave him an arch look. “Shouldn’t you be shopping for your human, what’s-her-name?”

 

Perry released his seatbelt. “Her name is Tiffani. With an i.”

 

“Tiffani. Of course it is.” Errata patted his cheek with a pitying look. “Come on. First fifty guests get a goodie bag.”

 

“She’s fun,” Perry said, sounding defensive even to himself.

 

“Humans generally are,” she said agreeably. “You should buy her something really nice.”

 

 

“Men don’t shop before December 23rd,” he protested as he got out of the car.

 

“Friends don’t let friends give their sweethearts, even ones named Tiffani with an i, gift cards.”

 

“But gift cards make sense.”

 

Errata flung the end of her scarf over her shoulder with a flick of one gloved hand. “Be grateful you have me to watch over you.” She clicked the locks and swept toward the entrance of the building, leaving Perry to catch up.

 

“Cats,” he grumbled. “What do you want for Yule?”

 

“Not a gift card.”

10 Holiday Gifts for Your Supernatural Friends

 

 

Christmas shopping can be challenging at the best of times, but the non-humans on the list can present special problems. Need ideas for what to get the vampire with centuries of clutter in his garage or the mermaid who needs everything waterproofed? Here are some suggestions from our retail experts:

 

1. Get that vampire a month’s rental on a storage locker big enough to house his spare coffin collection!


2. For the shifters we suggest many, many lint rollers or a rechargeable hand vacuum!


3. For the fussy feline shifters, how about modern art that doubles as a scratching post?


4. As a stocking stuffer, nothing beats fake human teeth for the vampires!


5. A definite must have: non-toxic chew toys for the werepuppies.


6. Environmentally friendly dry cleaning options for the mummies on your list.


7. Steaks


8. Stakes


9. A personal crossroad for that special demon. Top seller: something on Route 666.

 

10. High-strength spray adhesive is a thoughtful present for those zombies who just can’t keep it together.

 

Just remember, whatever you choose, it’s the thought that counts—or possibly the deliciously fresh brains that just manufactured that thought …

A 5 STAR Release Day Review & A 5 Star Recent Release Review! Dragon Knight of Khoth & The Gift (Dark Warrior Alliance #17 & 17.5) Brenda Trim & Tami Julka!

 

 

Lorne is a dragon knight to his core. He joined the Khoth Maahes as a young dragon and quickly rose to second Lieutenant. His days are spent fighting the Unseelie and guarding the royal family. When the Cuelebre King assigns Lorne to play bodyguard to Cambree, the realm’s hottest commodity, he is insulted. His skills are better suited for battle, not following a dragon-breeder around town. His arrogance results in Cambree being attacked, and the female adds insult to injury by firing him. Determined to earn her trust and respect, Lorne sets out to ensure her ongoing safety, but finds himself undeniably drawn to the female. Their passion burns hotter than his dragon fire, but Lorne isnt the only male vying for her attention. He's prepared to go down in flames to win her heart, but if he isn't careful, that's exactly what will happen.

 

Cambree enjoys her quiet life. Too shy for her own good, she prefers to melt in the shadows where she's lived her entire life. When the king returns to Khoth, and resumes the ancient ceremony identifying fertile females, Cambree is shocked when she is chosen. She's never been on a single date and is suddenly the focus of every male on Khoth. The irrisistible, sexy knight assigned to protect Cambree stirs a desire she's never felt before, but when she needs Lorne the most, he's nowhere to be found. Then Cambree draws the attention of the most dangerous creature in the realm, and becomes the target of a sinister plan that could rob the Cuelebre dragons of their ability to procreate.

 

Will Lorne and Cambree find their happily ever after, or will the entire dragon species burn away like embers of a fire?

The newest book in the Dark Warrior Alliance series is fiery and gripping with strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers in and refuse to let go. Lorne and Cambree are the kind of hero and heroine that readers can really sink their teeth into, they differ in so much, temperament, lifestyles and more but they fit together so well. Too bad that they have to work through so much of their own issues before they accept that the blistering attraction that they feel for each other is so much more than either thought. Readers can’t help but sympathize with Cambree after what she’s been through and her vulnerabilities that keep her from reaching out, while the sexy dragon might need a few lessons in feelings, he certainly knows how to keep readers’ hearts fluttering. The relationship is sweet and completely tangled up in emotional turmoil while these two heat up the pages with their fiery chemistry throughout.

 

The fast paced plot keeps readers holding on the edge of their seats with lots of thrilling suspense and exhilarating danger as their enemies are up to some major plotting and have some surprises in the store for Angus and his dragons. The spine tingling tension builds as a mysterious suitor competes for Cambree’s attentions, King Zander and his family visit Khoth and ask for a surprising favor while unexpected twists from the bad guys keeps readers guessing and waiting for the next explosive event or bloody battle. Oh, let’s not forget, there is still things happening back in the Tehrex Realm that just whets readers appetites for more.

Christmas is a time of joy, goodwill, and cherished moments spent with friends and family. But not for Ren. The holidays are a painful reminder that he's alone and depressed. The worst part is knowing it's all his fault. He put his parents through hell while in the throes of addiction, and despite years of sobriety, the damage is irreparable. His only solace is a beautiful angel that visits his dreams, offering comfort and support. Arial consumes his every waking thought and is the object of his nightly fantasies. Unfortunately, she is nothing more than a figment of his imagination.

 

When a surreal event brings Arial into his life, and ultimately his bed, Ren must face something greater than addiction. Forgiving himself for past mistakes is an impossible task, and it will take the love of an angel to prove to him that everyone deserves a second chance.

This delightful story in the Dark Warrior Alliance series is set during the Christmas holidays and warms the heart with as the strong, captivating characters discover forgiveness, hope, love and joy. Ariel and Ren’s story is really short but packs quite a punch as rule breaking occurs, dangerous fights with an enemy and a feisty angel refuses to take no for an answer. There is no way for readers to stay emotionally detached during this thrilling and enjoyable read that is full of sweet romance and electric chemistry. This story does not have to be read in sequence but it touches on an event that started in Dragon Knight of Koth, but has not reached its conclusion but that event is in no way influenced by this story.

Neither Brenda nor Tami grew up writing stories or dreaming of one day being authors but that changed when they shared a joint dream of creating a world to bring to life the stories of a group of dangerously handsome supernaturals.

Brenda is a Southern California girl who grew up in a chaotic house with ten siblings. Brenda survived the brutal murder of her first husband, John DeCaprio, at the hands of the children he was counseling to go on and help children in similar situations. Brenda remarried years later and now lives with her husband and their three fun-loving, energetic children. She loves running, reading, cooking, and Monster Energy drinks. And, Tami's margaritas!

 

Tami is a southern girl, born and raised in Georgia. She is married and has two boys, so needless to say, she is surrounded by testosterone. We are trying to bottle Tami's strength and positive outlook on life. It has helped her beat breast cancer and she is a proud three-year survivor. She loves reading paranormal romances, running at the lake near her home, watching college football (Go Dawgs!!!), and is always in search of the next best margarita.

 

Their life journeys led them both to Texas and one another. They fast became best friends and can always be found together. Whether it's lounging by the pool or writing steamy love scenes, they are frequently seen laughing and smiling!
