Celebrate the Wonder of the Season! Visit all of the blogs to see what they love most about the season and which books have made their Christmas wish lists! There’s a giveaway at each stop so be sure to visit them all!
The holiday season is upon us. One of the things I like best about this time of year is getting to spend time with my family (parents and sibling). I live a thousand miles away from them but we get together at both Thanksgiving and Christmas and it’s a special time for us to keep our bonds strong. I also love the trappings of the season, the decorations and festive lights, and I love getting cards from friends who I often only hear from once a year.
And of course I love the books! I always get books in some form for Christmas, although in the past few years I’m more likely to get a gift card for my Kindle than paperbacks. This year I’m hoping for a copy of The Penguin Book of Witches, some LCHF (low carb high fat) cookbooks, and The Essential Lenormand along with a gorgeous new deck, the Gilded Reverie Lenormand by Ciro Marchetti. With my Kindle gift card, I plan to pick up some new PNR and UF books, including the next Kresley Cole book, Shadow’s Claim (“next” for me!), Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, Kelley Armstrong’s Waking the Witch, Ilona Andrews’ Burn for Me (if I don’t buy it sooner!), Keri Arthur’s Dangerous Games, and maybe one of Anne Bishop’s books.
What do you love about this season? And what are some of the books on your wish list? Let us know in the comments, and enter the giveaway at the same time. 🙂

Excerpt from Her Vampire Mate
Antonio left his hand on the werewolf’s neck, massaging her with his fingers. She might be everything he didn’t look for in a woman but he felt an overwhelming urge to find out more about her.
For a moment, he felt her relax into him. Her head fell back just the slightest inch. Then she jerked away and headed for the outside door.
He hurried to keep up with her—not too difficult with his vampire speed. “Thought we were teaming up.”
“To talk to the building manager,” she said. “That’s it.”
He put his hand on her back. “You sure? I bet we could make magic together.”
She sucked in her breath and walked even faster.
“What’s your name, sweetness?”
She stopped and turned to him. For a moment, her eyes wavered then met his. “This isn’t going to work.” As she turned and stalked away, he heard her murmur, “What the hell am I going to do?”
Antonio knew what he wanted to do and it didn’t have anything to do with finding a world-walker.
Jennalynn couldn’t believe the fates had been so cruel as to mate her to a vampire. What was she supposed to do with him? They were enemies. She couldn’t very well live with him. And yet she’d go mad if he wasn’t in her life. Literally. Mated werewolves who lost their mates went mad. If they were old enough, their bodies gave out and they died. If they were young, they usually killed themselves.
So those were her choices. Try to find a way to be mates with a vampire or die.
A vampire and a werewolf. Enemies. Mates.
While searching for a world-walker, werewolf Jennalynn Bishop finds her mate. But instead of feeling excited, she’s horrified. He’s a vampire, an enemy.
Searching for the same world-walker, vampire and professional poisoner Antonio de Marco feels drawn to his werewolf foe. He loves women, always has, so he rolls with it. Maybe seducing her will throw her off her game.
Thrown together repeatedly, they finally team up to track down the world-walker, never realizing the danger waiting for them if they succeed in finding her.
This 30,000+ word long book is the fourth in the Colliding Worlds series. HEA included.
This title was also published in the Crave anthology.
