Twas a Winter’s Night…

Thank you so much to the awesomesauce Jodi Redford for allowing me to blog here today!

My upcoming release, MELT, coming 1/1/13 from Loose Id starts at Thanksgiving and ends at New Year’s Eve. My hero Justin is a conflicted guy, though he knows one thing for sure—he wants Kylie, the heroine. Problem is, she has a boyfriend. Additional problem? Their one-night-stand in college led Kylie to think Justin may not be kinky enough for her. Which, naturally, is not true. In fact, Justin has interests Kylie can’t begin to guess at. But he’s also conflicted about those interests, because the path to true love and delicious sex never runs smooth.

Even in a cozy cabin in the woods, with a roaring fire and a guy with a tongue piercing to keep you warm… Oh yes, Justin has a tongue piercing. And does he know how to use it!

I love holiday-themed books and try to write a couple every year, whether the holiday is Halloween or Christmas. Twice now I’ve included New Year’s Eve in my books (the other one is NO DRESS REQUIRED) and I think adding in a holiday adds in a little extra fun—and pressure, since we all know how trying it can be to create the perfect day!

In honor of my visiting with Jodi today, I’m doing a giveaway! One random international commenter will win an ebook copy of MELT when it releases. One random US winner will win a print copy of my holiday M/M/F friends-to-lovers romance, UNWRAPPED, along with a few swag goodies. All you have to do is answer this question: Do you like your Christmas stories sweet and spicy or triple red-hot naughty? (Both MELT and UNWRAPPED definitely fall into the triple red-hot naughty category. NO DRESS REQUIRED’s sweet and spicy.)

MELT’s blurb: To Justin Norton, an impending blizzard is the perfect time to push the limits. The last thing he expects to encounter on the trail is a dazed woman next to her overturned snowmobile--especially since that woman is his former lover Kylie Fisher, the bartender he’s been slowly rebuilding a friendship with over a shared love of basketball and lager. He's had some pretty kinky fantasies about her and now that they're alone, he's having a hard time keeping his hands off. But she's weak and hurting...isn't she?

Walking in on her long-term boyfriend with three naked women isn’t the way Kylie intended to celebrate the holidays. Flying on fury, she recklessly hits the trail on her brand new snowmobile. Luckily Justin, her seemingly easygoing knight in flannel and denim, saves her from herself, but does he have the moves to back up the sexy looks he’s flung her way for months? Because if he can’t make her melt, she’s damn sure going to find a man who can. But is she really ready for everything that comes with Justin Norton?
Happy kinky holidays! :)

I enjoy reading sweet romance stories but can't say no to the triple red-hot naughty ones either. They help a bad day get better. Great cover.

I've read lots of holiday stories this year, and I have to say...it depends. The characters and situations drive the story for me, and that includes the sex. (Though I have to admit, while I loved one very sweet m/m story this year, I'm secretly hoping for a sequel filled with lots of steamy love scenes--the guys had a ton of chemistry, and you KNOW lots of sexytimes are in their future...)
