I’d like to celebrate this day with another sweet.
It’s the story of a wounded warrior and a soldier’s widow:
Kristen Delaney is a cookie baker and works in a girl’s school in Kissing Creek, Kentucky. She’s been feeding homeless vets with leftover food as a way of keeping her husband’s memory alive (he was killed in Afghanistan)–this is a very difficult Christmas Eve for her and her little girl Rachel…until this soldier shows up!!
Here’s a short scene where we first meet him. Kristen gets a funny feeling when she sees a tall man walking toward her…
“She pulled her steering wheel hard to the right to avoid colliding with the tall man bundled up in a black field jacket and khaki pants, a duffel bag strapped on his back, his broad shoulders dusted with falling snow.
“She stuck her head out of the window to give him a piece of her mind and then stopped.
“Something about him made her stare at him. He had that swagger she knew so well. Military. Seeing him touched a nerve. Another homeless vet. Kristen shook her head, understanding. He was the third one this week looking for a hot meal.
“Not surprising on Christmas Eve.”
“The Christmas Piano Tree” is the story of a pretty young war widow who re-discovers the magic of the holiday season with the help of a homeless vet and an old piano.
Thanks for stopping by!
Who doesn’t love getting turned on by a man in a suit.
Wait. What did I say? A man in a suit? Not naked?
See for yourself.
Kacie Bennett, the heroine in my sexy novella, COME FLY WITH ME, can’t help but stare at Jace Chantiers at the London airport. After all, he just offered her a first class ticket home with no strings attached. Now, I’m asking you, what would you give to sit next to this guy on an 11-hour flight?
This week’s My Sexy Saturday theme is “I’m so sexy.” I thought it would be fun to see what knocks Kacie on her butt when she sees this guy who’s just being…well, a billionaire. He can’t help himself…he’s just so sexy!!
Here we go. 7 paragraphs of “I’m so sexy…” from COME FLY WITH ME:
What he was doing hanging out at the airline ticket counter, she didn’t know, but she couldn’t keep her eyes off him. He was in a primo class all by himself. His midnight blue pin-striped suit emphasized the breadth of his shoulders. Crisp white collar hugged his tanned neck. Blue silk shirt. Dark hair cut in a sophisticated style. Stubble beard that emphasized his strong jaw. Black overcoat slung over his shoulder.
He had the polish of a GQ model and the sex appeal of a rogue.
It didn’t add up.
Any girl would count herself lucky to be in her spot. Why shouldn’t she take him up on his offer and think about it later?
He had everything going for him. Thick dark hair that spiked over one eye at just the right angle to a squared-off jaw to dark granite eyes that flashed a signal too dangerous to ignore.
And he was tall, something this girl in her size nines would die for. So tall, she had to look up to him.
Six five without taking a breath.

Oooh…it’s Black Friday and time for Deals…what if Scrooge was a New York hottie?
Certainly Mr. One-Percenter is not standing in line at Walmart or Best Buy.
No, no. Not this hunky Wall Street stock trader who thinks nothing of dropping $5,000 for a suit or a measly $3,000 for a bottle of champagne.
I imagine Nick is at MAMIE’S, his Gentlemen’s Club, checking out the girls for his, um, favorite past time…BDSM.
Wouldn’t it be fun if the girls at Mamie’s ran Black Friday Sales? I think so. So here you go. MAMIE’S Black Friday Deals just for you Nick Radnors out there looking for personalized Holiday BDSM treats:
Two pairs of girls wearing Christmas stockings and nothing else for the price of one.
Half off on caning.
Private “Strip-Mas” show at Midnight for early shoppers only.
Christmas suckers wearing cherry-flavored lipstick at 75 percent off.
And here is my favorite:
Christmas comes but once a year, but at Mamie’s, we guarantee you’ll come more than once, then come again!
Happy Holidays and have a Cruel Yule!!
I couldn’t believe it when I opened up my email on Saturday — my novella won! This is a great contest for indie pubbed authors. A chance to showcase your cover and back copy blurb. The results are listed here on the Las Vegas Romance Writers website.
Here’s my back copy cover:
He is a U.S Army captain, a battle-weary soldier who has lost his faith.
She is a nun, her life dedicated to God.
Together they are going to commit an act the civilized world will not tolerate.
They are about to fall in love.
The ravages of combat have taken a toll on Captain Mack O’Casey, who has lost his faith after seeing the horrors of war as the Nazis fight hard to keep the Allies from reaching Rome. His beliefs are challenged even more when he loses his way and ends up in a mystical place called Monte D’Oro Rose during the cold winter of 1943…and falls in love with the beautiful Sister Angelina.
The young nun has a secret of her own, one she will die trying to protect: the lost Cross of Saint Cecelia. She must find the religious relic first before the brutal Nazi major who will stop at nothing to get it. Even murder. Sister Angelina risks her life to save the cross for the Church, but will she also risk her heart? Falling in love with the handsome American soldier is against the rules, but she can’t deny the stolen moments with him have made her question her vows.
It is Christmas Eve when these two lonely people come together on this holiest of holidays and how faith helps them overcome their greatest fears. A time when the whole world holds its breath as brave men and women fight for freedom.
And a soldier and a nun dare to fall in love…
Have a great holiday season!
