Exclusive Excerpt: A COWBOY CHRISTMAS MIRACLE by Carolyn Brown

A Cowboy Christmas Miracle Carolyn Brown

Okay, it’s time to come clean. We love reading anything Christmas-y in the wrong season. There’s just something about it that’s so magical and nothing embodies that feeling more than writing from the ever-fantastic Carolyn Brown! Here’s an exclusive peek at her latest book, A Cowboy Christmas Miracle, out right now!

Betsy fidgeted as she waited in the lobby, key card to a room on the third floor in her hand. It wasn’t too late to cut her losses and get back into her truck, drive another half a mile, and get a room at a different hotel. But they were grown adults, and she’d rented a suite that came with a sofa, a small dining area, and a microwave and fridge.

She took a deep breath and stiffened her backbone as well as her resolve as she made plans. They would have supper in her room, not even look at that big, king-size bed, and talk about Christmas stuff. Then he would call down to the lobby and get his own room, probably on a different floor, and tomorrow they’d go home. And then she saw him carrying in two big sacks from the restaurant and a duffle bag, and her determination flew out the door when it slid open.

He was sexy as hell with snowflakes shining on his black cowboy hat. A few had made their way up under the brim to stick to his sandy-brown hair that covered half his ears. His blue eyes caught hers staring at him, and he winked.

That gesture plus his distinct swagger made her mouth go dry. Maybe, she decided right then, they should eat before she said anything. It would be a shame to get into an argument and spoil the dinner. He’d clearly spent a lot of money on those two bags of food, and she really was hungry.

You are hiding from what you know is the right thing to do, her conscience fussed.

I know, but I want one real dinner with him, and he’s gone to the trouble to bring it, and I’m not going to put myself in a position to even kiss him. It’s just dinner, for God’s sake. Go away and leave me alone, she argued.

Swoon-Worthy Hero Highlights: Christmas Edition by Codi Gary

Like any other romance nut, one of my favorite kinds of romances is a Christmas one. Thus, when I saw the cover for Guess Who’s Coming for Christmas on Feeln, I was intrigued. First of all, a hot guy with a guitar was on the cover…need I say more?

Guess Who's Coming To Christmas


Actually, yes I should because I haven’t even gotten to who this mysterious guitar holding guy was…and why he completely stole my heart in this movie.

Q&A: Katie Lane of UNWRAPPED

Unwrapped by Katie Lane

We’ve got author Katie Lane stopping by to answer our questions! We hope you enjoy and pick up your copy of Unwrapped today!!


If you could only read five books for the rest of your life, what five books would they be, and why?

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.  I love the Grinch and the Whos. But mostly I love the message: People can change. No matter how small your heart, it can grow.

The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. Another great message: No matter how small and odd you are, you can be a hero.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. This is such a perfect story. The sub-plots keep you on your toes, and each and every character has depth, color, and texture.  You want to move to that little southern town and make them your best friends…your bravest heroes…your worst enemies.

Shanna by Kathleen Woodiwiss. It has everything. Love, betrayal, murder, hidden identities, pirates, and of course, great sex scenes. :o)

The Bible. As far as I’m concerned, it’s the best book ever written.

But at least her love life is finally looking up…if only she can find her red-hot rescuer again.

Dragon shapeshifter Drake Cameron is the last of his clan, and the loneliness is starting to claw at him. He’s met only one woman who might be able to stand the shock of his true nature. After all, she barely batted an eyelash when her home burned down. And feeling her curves against him was just as hot as the inferno. Just when he thinks he’ll never track her down, she walks into his firehouse—with no idea what she’s about to get herself into.

His Every Need by Terri L. Austin

Allie Campbell is determined to take care of her family, no matter the cost. But when her father loses their home to British tycoon Trevor Blake, Allie finds herself forced to plead for more time to pay off the loan…and if she has to use her own body as collateral, then so be it.

Trevor isn’t moved by Allie’s story. But when Allie impulsively offers to do anything to keep the house, he’s intrigued enough to raise the stakes: for the next two months, she must cater to his every need, no matter how depraved. To his amazement, she agrees.

Allie has no intention of enjoying her time with the arrogant, domineering Brit, but it doesn’t take long before he’s got her aching for his touch-and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her beg…

Lord and Lady Spy by Shana Galen

No man can outsmart him, but she’s been outsmarting him for years

Lord Adrian Smythe may appear a perfectly boring gentleman, but he leads a thrilling life as one of England’s most preeminent spies, an identity so clandestine even his wife is unaware of it. But he isn’t the only one with secrets.

Now that the Napoleonic wars have come to an end, daring secret agent Lady Sophia Smythe can hardly bear the thought of returning home to her tedious husband. Until she discovers in the dark of night that he’s not who she thinks he is after all.


In Your Corner by Sarah Castille

He rules in the ring
Two years ago, Jake and Amanda were going hot and heavy. But when Jake wanted more, Amanda walked away. Jake immersed himself in mixed martial arts, living life on the edge. But that didn’t dull the pain of Amanda’s rejection-until a chance encounter throws them together.

A high-powered lawyer, Amanda was a no-strings-attached kind of girl. But two years after her breakup with Jake, she still hasn’t found anyone who gets her heart pumping the way he did. And then he shows up in her boardroom, hot as sin and needing help…

But can he rule her heart?
Jake is darker, sexier, and impossible to resist. As their chemistry builds, Amanda’s not sure if she can stay in control, or if she’s finally willing to let him claim her body and soul.

Any Given Christmas by Candis Terry

His game plan doesn’t include an instant attraction to Emma Hart, a feisty kindergarten teacher who seems to be the only person in Deer Lick not interested in the hometown hero. Or his dearly departed mom popping up with mistletoe in hand and meddling on the mind. Now Dean can’t help but wonder if there’s more to love than life between the goal posts.

Wicked Wild Fantasies by Shiloh Walker

Always the wallflower, Alison Ryan is used to being ignored and pushed around. Everybody takes her for granted, even the strung-out would-be mugger who tried to steal her purse late one night. She can’t say who was more surprised when she stood up to him…the mugger, herself…or Detective Alex O’Malley, her brother’s best friend and the man she’s loved for most of her life.

When a little bit of comforting goes sideways, Ali ends up living out one of her most hidden fantasies, having Alex’s mouth on hers, his hands sliding all over her body.

The last thing Alex O’Malley expected was to wake up and find himself wrapped around his best friend’s baby sister. He’d just been trying to be a friend and he wakes up in wonderland. Before he could get his head wrapped around what’s going on, though, his mouth gets him in trouble and Alison takes off. Plagued by guilt and a need that just won’t quit, he keeps away from her.

When life has them crashing back together, Alex can hardly believe his eyes. The shy mouse who used to pretend she wasn’t staring at him is gone and in her place is a strong, sexy confident woman who isn’t afraid to take her life—and her needs—into her own hands.

Determined to convince her to give him a chance, Alex sets out to make her understand that he is the one man who can make all her wicked, wild fantasies come true.

Enter Dan ‘Wolf’ Wolford aka the man-whore next door and the new star of Becca’s popular, post-divorce blog about men.

No Turning Back by Tiffany Snow

Being a bartender by night and law firm runner by day helps make ends meet for Kathleen Turner. Mostly. Being 23 and single in Indianapolis wasn’t exactly a thrilling adventure, but then again, that’s not what Kathleen wanted. At least, not until she met Blane Kirk.

Navy SEAL turned high-profile attorney, Blane is everything a woman could want. The only problem? He’s her boss.

Blane is known for playing the field and the last thing Kathleen needs or wants is to get involved with him. But when her friend is murdered and it seems Kathleen will be next, she may not have a choice.

The deeper she sinks into the web of lies and murder, the more Kathleen realizes she can trust no one if she’s going to survive. No one is innocent. Not even Blane.

With whiskey-colored eyes and a killer smile, James is one gorgeous hunk who really knows how to fill out a tuxedo. He charms everyone, including Cassie. And when the night ends, the party doesn’t stop. As Cassie falls, literally, into his bed, James falls head over heels in love.

Guest Post: “Tis The Season” by Amy Lane

Winter Ball Amy Lane

So, the holidays are coming and all of our favorite authors have a holiday release coming out—HUZZAH!

There is something irresistible about the winter solstice holidays and romance. It’s like the requirements of good will and gift giving make it possible to violate all of the rules of reality in a quest for a happy ending. Even your angstiest author abandons the gritty romance of a dangerous street for a gentler, kinder romance, one in which the outcome is never really in doubt.

Seriously—no self-respecting romance writer would dare release a romance with a questionable ending at this time of year, and if he or she does? The consequences are dire. (Ask me how I know—see The Bells of Times Square, released December of 2014.  Uh-huh.)

This season can be a lot of fun in terms of books. The happy romance reader gets to go out and buy something light and fluffy, or poignant and sweet. Something that offers a panacea to shopping panic and a brief, happy sequester from family quarrels and strife that can sometimes overwhelm us during the holidays.  It’s a good feeling—I know I’m not immune, as a reader. I want that happy, sappy, weepy, chocolaty yum piece for my December and January, and oh yes, I have a few authors that never fail to deliver.

Of course, for your happy romance writer, it’s time to write something sweltering in August—for, say, a ten-month lead time, or skippy in May for the seven or twenty-month crowds, or maybe a Valentine’s piece for a fifteen month timeline.

The fact is, romance writers are never writing during the time that they’re living—and that can be either a hindrance or a help to the writing process as a whole.

It’s a help when you’re desperate to escape the time you’re in, or when you’re eager to revisit the joy of the holidays. Some people slip easily into their Winter Solstice Slippers during the rest of the year, and that makes writing a breeze. Huzzah! They get to relive December, and that’s jolly good fun!

However, that jolly good fun thing isn’t for everybody. When the sun is sweltering down in May and you’re still paying off your Christmas bills and your entire state is either a hot wool blanket or a dust bowl in a blender, thinking about the holiday season might be a little bit difficult. If you’re writing your holiday story in February, when you’re craving any spot of sun and the bright cold of December just seems like the precursor that doomed you to a damp and frigid death, it might be even worse.  These are times when a writer might need some help recreating Christmas cheer.

Some suggestions that might help—

  • Reading the solstice letters you wrote and sent out over the seasons. I’m lucky in that January 3rd is the latest I’ve ever sent a batch out (I have the blog post to prove it!) so these are all seasonally themed. They can help you remember things like concert and dance appearances, what your kids are doing that time of year, and what shopping was like in December—all of which help build holiday mood.
  • If you blog, go back in your archives and read the posts you put out in November/December, and even the beginning of January. Those also have pictures of family in them for me, so that really gets the holiday happy going.
  • Which brings me to holiday pictures of family. Yes. Use them shamelessly. Again, you are trying to recreate a smell, a mood, an ineffable feeling. If you have a family that has loved and celebrated a winter solstice holiday, then looking at those pictures might take you right where you need to be.
  • A long sit down in a walk-in freezer. Okay—I’ll admit, I’ve never actually done this, but I’m serious, when it’s July and I’m working on a deadline and it’s 85 F in my house, I’ve wondered if I could talk my local food joint into letting me do just that. Mostly I’ve had to settle for a trip to the grocery store and sticking my head in the ice cream freezer, but still. It’s a nice break. Which brings me to…
  • Cooking some solstice celebration and food. Not the whole turkey and the works, no—but some cranberry sauce and a baked potato with gravy, or a pumpkin spiced iced tea might get the holiday juices flowing.
  • Cleaning out the garage or winter wear drawers. Now, I’ll admit, I don’t actually do this last one, but I’m sure for some of you people with organized lives, this will be a real help. Tell me all about it, yes?

So there you go—some suggestions for conjuring up Christmas (or Feast Day, or Yule, or Hanukah) in July. Or May. Or February. Or, you know, whenever you’re writing your winter solstice themed story when it’s not winter solstice time!

And as for those of us writing our hot and sweaty romances now? When cargo shorts, flip-flops and a tank shirt would damage some of the bits many romance writers and readers love best?

Well, there’s always shotgunning episodes of Hawaii 5-0, Lost, or Breaking Bad. (Not that Breaking Bad will actually put you in a romantic mood, but it did have “sweaty desert” down to a science.)  If that fails, there’s cranking your heater up and lounging about in your summer wear, or visiting your gym and taking advantage of the sauna. There are some amazing calendars featuring beautiful and exotic summer lands—those could help too!

Or—and this is the best one, the one that should be used by all romance writers ever in order to convince their spouses of the perfect present—you could convince your spouse that a vacation in Hawaii or the Caribbean would be a perfect gift for you, especially because you’re writing something in that setting, and you could really use the research.

That’s right. Research.

So I think, this March, when I’ll be writing one of the first of my Christmas stories for next year, I will bake myself some fudge and make turkey and potatoes for dinner.

And tell my family that it’s research.

They’ll love research!

Amy’s Christmas story this year, RT Top  Pick  Winter Ball, is available HERE for pre-sale.  Last year’s Christmas books, RITA Award (TM) Nominee and RT Top Pick The Bells of Times Square, and Rainbow Award Honorable Mention Candy Man are available at Amazon and most online venues. 

Amy Lane has two kids in college, two gradeschoolers in soccer, two cats, and two Chi-who-whats at large. She lives in a crumbling crapmansion with most of the children and a bemused spouse. She also has too damned much yarn, a penchant for action adventure movies, and a need to know that somewhere in all the pain is a story of Wuv, Twu Wuv, which she continues to believe in to this day! She writes fantasy, urban fantasy, and m/m romance–and if you accidentally make eye contact, she’ll bore you to tears with why those three genres go together. She’ll also tell you that sacrifices, large and small, are worth the urge to write. You can find Amy on Tumblr, Twitter, her blog, and her website

Deal Alert: Kate Meader, Dani-Lyn Alexander, and Mariah Stewart

Today we have a Deal Alert with three great holiday titles at prices that shouldn’t be missed! With offerings by Kate Meader, Dani-Lyn Alexander, and Mariah Stewart you better grab them before they’re gone!

Rekindle The Flame by Kate Meader

Cuddle up by the fire with the irresistible prequel to Kate Meader’s smokin’ Hot in Chicago series—originally published in the sizzling holiday anthology Baby, It’s Cold Outside—a superhot e-novella that will warm you from your head to your heart and all the way to your toes!

Chicago firefighter Beck Rivera always knew his destiny would be defined by two things: his dream to follow in the footsteps of his legendary foster father Sean Dempsey and his teenage passion for heiress Darcy Cochrane, the one girl who could both stoke and cool his fire. Loving her meant setting her free and breaking her heart—and his. But when a chance reunion at his family’s bar, sparked by a drunk Santa, places her in his path again, destiny can no longer be denied.

The last thing heiress-turned-tattoo-artist Darcy Cochrane needs is the rollercoaster of emotion stirred up by her first love: sexy, gorgeous man-on-fire Beck Rivera. But he always had such talented hands. And more talented lips. And…maybe one time can’t hurt. Then she’ll send him packing like he did to her all those years ago. But Darcy and Beck soon discover that nothing ignites holiday flames like rekindling a lost love…

The New Year’s Wish by Dani-Lyn Alexander

Typing out memos is anything but torturous when your boss is this hot! Dani-Lyn Alexander’s irresistible new yuletide romance is a lighthearted office romp that will make you long for the company holiday party.

Olivia Calloway isn’t cut out for the nine-to-five life. She’s a born entrepreneur. She just has to figure out her soul’s true calling—and she’s given herself until the clock strikes midnight on New Year’s Eve to do it. With her trust fund dwindling and only two and a half months to go, she takes an assistant position at prestigious law firm Harris & Harris. The problem is, Olivia’s a terrible employee—incessantly late, forgetful, and clumsy. Not that her gorgeous new boss Garrett Emerson seems to mind. Beautiful, charming Olivia has been on his mind ever since she ran into him, literally, sprinting to the interview. But Olivia’s first big assignment—to plan an elaborate last minute New Year’s Eve party for the entire company—could make or break her job entirely. With Ms. Harris herself demanding perfection, a jealous office rival rooting for Olivia to lose, and even Garrett dreading the affair, can Olivia finally prove herself—or will an unforeseen complication send her back to the drawing board? All she wants for the holidays is to be her own boss—and to ignite the flirtatious sparks between her and Garrett…so she can file their relationship under love.

Guest Post: Charity Beecham on Holiday Reading

A Carrington Christmas Helen Conrad

With the holidays just around the corner, literally, everyone is finding ways to help get in the spirit. It’s a time for making gingerbread houses, baking pies, and making your home as festive as possible. Of course we all know the real reason for the season: love. Many people enjoy a good holiday romance novel during the holidays. And why not? What is better than sitting by the fire, basking in the glow of the Christmas tree`s lights, and reading a good holiday book? I enjoy books that match the season because I love the positive feelings each one shares.

As we all know, most romance books end happily. But, throw the holidays into a romance novel and you not only get your happy ending, you also get a bit of that holiday magic to keep for yourself. In A Carrington Christmas Story (Destiny Bay Holiday Special Book 1), by Helen Conrad, Mason is not ready for a serious relationship. That is the furthest thing from his mind. He thoroughly enjoys his bachelor life. But when he is stuck spending Christmas Eve night with a woman, Melody, he has no choice but to really talk to the girl next door. As he slowly opens up to Melody, he discovers that he’s not the only one making some tough life decisions. In fact, when Melody tells him about her own past, his own struggles start to seem childish. The more he gets to know Melody, the more he finds himself slipping. He’s falling for her—fast.

This book is short, but it is packed with moments that conjure more fuzzy feelings than the smell of fresh sugar cookies straight out of the oven and the glint of tinsel on a tree. In the beginning, Mason has all his walls up to protect himself from any emotion that tries to enter. It is magical to feel how those walls slowly crumble for Melody. Witnessing someone learn how to love—now, that’s a real Christmas miracle.

Have you got your holiday romance book ready?  A Carrington Christmas Story (Destiny Bay Holiday Special Book 1), by Helen Conrad, is free on Kindle. It’s a short story, but packed full of just the right love needed for the holiday season. What are you reading for the holidays? What kind of stories get you in the holiday spirit? Is it romance, stories about family, or something else? Love is exactly what gets me in the spirit.
