My Favorite Things Giveaway – Jeanne McDonald

Today in the My Favorite Things Giveaway, we hear from Jeanne McDonald, Contemporary Romance author of Compass and Politically Incorrect!

What is my favorite thing about the holidays? Well, that’s a loaded question! I rattled this thought around in my brain for the longest. Because I love Christmas season in general how was I to pick just one thing from the food, the smells, the lights, the tree, the presents, the romance…and there it was. The thing I most love about the holidays is the Christmas spirit, itself.
There’s something about the holiday season that changes people. Happiness floods the world. People smile more. People love more. Families come together and share their hearts. People allow themselves to open up and care more. The Christmas spirit is simply magical. And who doesn’t need or want a little magic in their lives? I know I certainly do.
As a writer, my mind automatically reverts to stories and how they convey Christmas spirit. There are countless holiday stories that reflect the importance of Christmas spirit. One of my all time favorites, which also happens to be a classic in the realms of literature, is The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. We all know this story, as it’s been retold a million and one different ways – Ebeneezer Scrooge, a mean ol’ miser, refuses to see his fellow man for anything more than another shilling in his pocket. In an effort to save him from a terrible fate, he is visited by three spirits of Christmas. These guides show him the importance of the season, more importantly the importance of a full and happy life. As I said before, this story has been retold in countless manners, from cartoons to Muppets to theater and film, but my favorite recreation is the 1950’s film starring Alastair Sim. When I read the novel, I always picture him as my Scrooge.
Another great story about understanding and finding oneself in the spirit of Christmas is While You Were Sleeping starring Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman. As a woman with no family, Lucy is reminded every Christmas how alone she is. That is until a freak accident drops her into the lives of Callaghan family. There Lucy finds love and learns what life means to be surrounded by those who adore you. Christmas spirit shows her the life she was always meant to have.
Okay, I know I have gone all kinds of philosophical here, but really, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Christmas spirit. So tonight, when you’re sitting with your family or walking through a crowded shopping mall looking for Christmas gifts, stop and think about the joy this season brings. Then you can truly feel the spirit of Christmas.
Now that I’ve got you thinking about Christmas spirit, how about you continue your journey with Compass. No, this isn’t a Christmas novel, though there is a Christmas scene within its page. This is simply a story about finding love and giving it a chance.

My Favorite Things Giveaway – Ayden Morgan

Today in the My Favorite Things Giveaway, we hear from Ayden Morgen, author of the All Falls Down series and the Teplo Trilogy.


In a house with two very rambunctious kittens, my husband and I didn’t get to do a lot of decorating for the holidays this year. We weren’t quite brave enough to risk one of the minions destroying our hard work.
Instead, we opted to focus more on the things we love about the holiday season, like giving, which leads me to my most favorite part of the holiday….

1. Presents!


I am a big fan of finding the perfect gift for the cool kids in my life. I just love seeing their little faces light up with happiness and excitement. Since SS and I don’t have any little ones at home, I’m not ashamed to admit that I spoil my two sisters’ kids on holidays. Picking out their favorite things is so much fun!


2. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

I have adored this story since I was a little girl. Every year, I make a point to watch the original movie (not that hot mess with Jim Carrey) as often as it’s on television. I love everything about the book, and the movie is equally as wonderful.


3. Tootsie Roll Banks

It sounds like such a little, silly thing, but every year for as long as I can remember, I’ve gotten a Tootsie Roll bank at some point during the holiday season. I look forward to it so much! I’m a Tootsie Roll addict, and it’s just not Christmas unless I get my grubby hands on a bank full of goodness.


4. Time to Read/Write

What’s better than curling up under the covers with a good book or plot bunny and a few hours of freedom from every day responsibilities? While I have to work rain, snow, sleet, or holiday, I try to make a point to take a little time to read and write during the holiday season. Last year, I spent some of that time writing All Over You, about a bossy San Francisco detective hot on the trail of the dangerous catfish who might just be the kindergarten teacher he’s falling for. Both of their hearts and their futures are on the line in this sizzling erotic romance.


Want to win a copy of All Over You and more? Tell me your favorite part of the holiday season in the comments, and then enter the My Favorite Things Giveaway below!

My Favorite Things Giveaway – Jiffy Kate

Today in the My Favorite Things Giveaway, we hear from Jiffy Kate, co-authors of the Finding Focus Series and the new adult romance, The Other One.

15325284_935044613293669_1477430252168645487_oWhen asked to think of our favorite things related to Christmas, our minds immediately turn to family. What is Christmas without family and friends, right?

Like the characters in our books, we both value family more than anything. We also love the food, the decorating, the get-togethers, and of course making memories.

Oh, and Santa.

Who doesn’t love Santa?! 😉

We also love giving. The saying that it’s better to give than receive hits home with us. We both love paying it forward and spreading kindness 365 days a year, but especially during this time of year.

Kindness warms our souls.

If you’re looking for something to warm your soul, we think you should give our books a try!

All three of our books are set in the south. Who doesn’t love a good dose of sunshine and warmth during the winter months? We like to say they’re southern-fried fiction with heart and soul.

You can find them on Amazon and read them for free on Kindle Unlimited!

My Favorite Things Giveaway – Lindsey Gray

Today in the my favorite things giveaway, we hear from Lindsey Gray, Contemporary Romance author of the Nerdy Girl Nation, Holiday Cure for the Cursed, and Not the Same Season!



When it comes to Christmas there are so many things I love. I’d have to say my favorite thing about the holiday is the CHRISTMAS MOVIES! I am a movie junkie the rest of the year, but I can’t get enough of the holiday gems. I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you today.


Mixed Nuts (1994)

I love Steve Martin, but this movie has an all star cast to back him up. This movie centers around a suicide hotline located in a building going condo. Nothing is worse than getting evicted at Christmas, but the lengths these characters go to save their building and themselves is as hilarious as it is inspiring.


National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

Chevy and Beverly lead another all star cast in this holiday staple. Clark just wants a big family Christmas, just once. But being a Griswold, nothing ever goes as planned. From huge Christmas trees, annoying neighbors, and a lighting display that can be seen from space, you have to fall in love with this dysfunctional family.



White Christmas (1954)

Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye head to Vermont with two sisters and decide to do what they can to help their former military commander bring life back into a Ski Lodge without any snow.



Elf (2003)

Any movie with Santa and his elves is aces in my book. Then this movie came along with the added humor of Will Farrell as Buddy and it is an instant classic! Buddy learns he wasn’t born at the North Pole. His real father lives in New York City so Buddy gathers his wits and travels to meet his dear old dad.



Plus there are hundreds of Hallmark movies that my husband rolls his eyes over. LOL. I try to devour each and every one. They’ve inspired me to write my one holiday tales.

My Favorite Things Giveaway – Jennifer Locklear

Today in the My Favorite Things giveaway, we hear from Jennifer Locklear, Contemporary Romance author of Constellation!
Even before it was ever a thing, my family always made a point of watching “A Christmas Story” on TV.
I first saw the movie in 1985. My mother and I had just moved to Oregon a few months before and I was trying to adapt to a new life. She introduced me to the movie and we watched it together at home. She wanted me to see it because the premise reminded her quite a bit of her own childhood, but what we discovered was so much more than a walk down Memory Lane. We both laughed so much and it really helped make that first Christmas in our new surroundings a happy and memorable one.
We continued to watch “A Christmas Story” each December and it became a timeless classic for us even before the rest of world caught on. It’s a film I never tire of and it has become a holiday tradition for our family in a big way. When TBS began broadcasting 24 hours of “A Christmas Story” years ago, our family made a commitment to go all in. Each and every year, from 5 PM on Christmas Eve until 5 PM on Christmas night, it is the only thing allowed on all the television sets in our house. The TV’s even stay on all through the night, and inevitably one of us wakes up at 3 or 4 AM to catch a few scenes. Just because we can. You’d think we’d get tired of it after years and years and years of watching, but nope.
Each year, we seem to hone in on several different one liners from the film. Once a line has been singled out we play a game of trying to catch the line during as many screenings as possible. It’s not at all uncommon for one (or all of us) to randomly shout out things like …
“I’m not color blind either.”
“I triple dog dare you!”
“You’ll shoot your eye out kid!”
“It’s a clinker!”
“Shoot! I didn’t know dat. I thought it was a lamp!”
“Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.”
“I like the Tin Man.”
This nostalgic and quirky movie suits our fun-loving family well. It gives us a chance to laugh together and it helps our family bridge one holiday season to another. There is never any suggestion of changing this Locklear family tradition, and after 30 years I doubt we ever could let a year go by without watching “A Christmas Story”.
After all, it just wouldn’t be a proper holiday without electric sex gleaming in the window!

Secrets have a way of coming out…

Amy Cartwright isn’t sure who she’s supposed to be anymore. Her family thinks she’s flighty, her ex believes she’s a walkover (the bastard) and her friends think she’s plain crazy. But there’s a different side to her that nobody sees, nobody but the cool, sexy Scotsman who just happens to be her boss.

Callum Ferguson isn’t looking for excitement; he’s had that and it almost ruined him. He likes things calm and predictable – everything that his new PA turns out not to be. But from the moment she walks through his office door it’s as though the light has come back into his life, and he can’t get her out of his mind.

Fighting against the inevitable, they both try to ignore the attraction, but the flame of desire is too bright. They’re soon drawn into a steamy love affair that they have to hide from everybody, knowing the revelation could cost them everything they’ve worked so hard for, as well as each other.
