Giveaway & Release News!

Fresh Fiction and I have teamed up to bring you a fun new giveaway! 

On September 25th, the first two of my three Hamilton Christmas novellas will be re-released and I thought you might like to win one, along with a fun bookmark charm designed exclusively for the series by the fabulous Joyce Taber of The Cotton Thistle.

How do you enter? Simple! Click HERE!

The Hamilton Series was originally available in three separate holiday anthologies, but now they will be available individually, with adorable new cover art! UNLEASHED and LOCK, STOCK & JINGLE BELLS are the first two in the series. The final installment, NAUGHTY BUT NICE, will arrive on October 30th.

Here’s a little preview of each one….

A raging winter storm and a holiday spent pet-sitting reveals there’s more than one kind of animal in the house . . .When Emma Lafferty is hired by a billionaire CEO to watch his pets over the holidays, she expects to enjoy a quiet Christmas in opulent surroundings. What she doesn’t expect is to spend the week trapped in the mansion with Trevor Hamilton, the CEO’s sexy great-nephew—and heir—whose motives are as shady as his desire is crystal clear . . .

The best holiday gifts aren’t always under the tree . . .Holly hates the yuletide season more than ever since she received her very early inheritance: her mother’s Christmas novelty store. Now she has to put her life on hold to deal with the shop, while her parents settle into their busy sunny Florida retirement. But Holly’s childhood pal, Sean, is determined to warm her up—to Christmas and to him. When they uncover a diary concealing secrets involving both their families, this could be the Christmas that changes their lives forever . . .

’Tis the season for sweet surprises . . .Businessman Griffin’s never believed in luck . . . until sassy-sweet small-town baker Melody turns his world around. Except there’s a catch: There’s no way he’ll be able to build his empire and hold on to her. This new love could destroy all his dreams—or make this Christmas better than he ever imagined possible . . .

Want to make sure you don’t miss out? I have some handy pre-order links right here. (I’m so helpful like that!)




The Fresh Fiction giveaway for UNLEASHED runs until the end of September. Don’t forget to enter!

Good luck!
