Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi all,

The blog hop and giveaway is now over. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left a comment. The winner of the $10 Amazon Gift Card was Kym. Visit Carrie Ann's blog hop site to see the winners of the Grand Prizes.

Thanks for hopping and be sure to join us for the New Year's Blog Hop January 1-6th!

When you think of the holidays, images of sleigh rides under the full moon, hot cocoa in front of a crackling fire, and exchanging gifts from the heart come to mind. Cuddling in front of the TV under a warm blanket watching "White Christmas" or "A Charlie Brown Christmas" may also be your idea of a magical holiday season. In most places, the snow is falling, houses are brightly lit with decorations, and trees are decorated and proudly displayed in living room windows. The holidays are a magical time which makes it the perfect time to fall in love.

Finding the right gift, a gift from the heart for your loved one, is not always easy. Maybe it's something shiny and sparkly, or perhaps the latest electronic gizmo. Or maybe it's spending a day together spreading joy, food, and gifts with the less fortunate. Spending time together during the holidays is truly the greatest gift of all, whether you do so alone or with family and friends.

What do you think the greatest gift you can give or receive is?


In my latest novel, SARA'S PROMISE, William finds the greatest gift is the love of his wife, even long after she has passed away. Her promise to him was to find a way to take care of him and the children even if she died, and he believes she is keeping her promise by sending Annie to him. But can he give up the memory of Sara and let this new woman into his heart?

Amazon Kindle $3.99
Paperback $9.99

  6. One of my favorite Christmas Romance Books is The Untamable Rogue by Annette Blair! The story is about Ashford Blackburne Fifth Earl and he has to get married and get his willing bride pregnant before Christmas or his grandfather won’t let him inherit his money. Ash truly needs to inherit the money because his late father squandered it all away and he is taking care of his mother. After getting stood up at the alter, again, Ash and his friends go to the local pub where the owner plays a drunken Ash in a card game…his consolation prize is the pubs daughter Larkin, who he wants to get ride of. Ash has to learn to forgive…Larkin has to learn how to trust…can two completely different people find love together. This is a cute, extremely funny, romantic story with a surprise Christmas ending!
