***GIVEAWAY*** Interview Donna Grant - The Hero - Review

We'll get back to our regularly scheduled holiday program tomorrow but I wanted to tell you about Donna Grant's brand new, Sons of Texas, series. The debut, The Hero just released yesterday. I loved it and wanted to chat with Donna about it. So I hope you enjoy our interview and St. Martin's Press is sponsoring one print copy US ONLY for a giveaway. Details below.

Owen Loughman is a highly-decorated Navy SEAL who has a thirst for action. But there’s one thing he hasn’t been able to forget: his high school sweetheart, Natalie. After more than a decade away, Owen has returned home to the ranch in Texas for a dangerous new mission that puts him face-to-face with Natalie and an outside menace that threatens everything he holds dear. He’ll risk it all to keep Natalie safe—and win her heart.

Natalie Dixon has had a lifetime of heartache since Owen was deployed. Fourteen years and one bad marriage later, she finds herself mixed up with the Loughmans again. With her life on the line against an enemy she can’t fight alone, it’s Owen’s strong shoulders, smoldering eyes, and sensuous smile that she turns to. When danger closes in, how much will she risk to stay with the only man she’s ever loved, in The Hero by New York Timesbestselling author Donna Grant

**GIVEAWAY** Interview - Matt Coyle - Review - Dark Fissures

Today I'm taking a short break from my holiday bash to bring you an interview with Anthony Award winning author of the Rick Cahill series, Matt Coyle about #3 in his series Dark Fissures, just released today and which I'm also reviewing. So sit back and enjoy our chat then enter to win an author signed copy of your own compliments of Matt's publicist, Author Guide. Details below.

Private Investigator Rick Cahill fears the next knock on his door will be a cop holding a warrant for his arrest. For murder. La Jolla Chief of Police Tony Moretti is convinced Rick killed a missing person. No body has been found, but the evidence that s piling up says murder and it all points to Rick. With Moretti on his tail and the bank about to foreclose on his house, Rick takes a paying case that will stave off the bank, but pits him against Moretti and the La Jolla Police Department.

Brianne Colton, a beautiful country singer, is convinced her estranged husband s suicide was really murder. Rick is unconvinced, but the mortgage has to be paid. Each new piece of evidence convinces him she s right. He breaks his number one rule and falls for Brianne even, as he begins to question her motives.

As Moretti cinches the vise tighter, with Rick unable to trust the FBI, evil forces emerge from the shadows who will do anything, including torture and murder, to stop Rick from uncovering the truth."

Giveaway - Guest Post Brenda Harlen - Showcase The More Mavericks the Merrier

Welcome back to my tribute to all things Harlequin Holiday. Today I'm featuring Brenda Harlen, she's got a fantastic recipe for her gingerbread cookies and her recipe for cafe mocha. She's also sponsoring a giveaway package. Details below



Rust Creek Ramblings 

We here at The Gazette just love a happy ending, and if anyone needs a little Christmas, it's Jamie Stockton. The stoic rancher has been raising his triplet babies alone since his wife died. Thanks to Rust Creek Falls's volunteer "baby chain," Jamie has had many helping hands. But his bed is still empty, and so is his heart. 

Could family friend Fallon O'Reilly be the one to brighten his holiday? Babies Henry, Jared and Kate surely love having Fallon around, but their lonely dad may take a little more convincing. Hang the holly, dear readers, and deck the halls as our cautious cowboy rediscovers his Christmas spirit—and the "girl next door" gets a present she will never forget!

Brenda is giving a copy of her holiday novel

Giveaway - Guest Post Karen Rose Smith - Showcase - The Maverick's Holiday Surprise

Welcome back to my Holiday blog bash featuring all things Holiday and Harlequin. Today's guest post is from Karen Rose Smith entitled White Christmas.
Enjoy the post, the showcase of her holiday HQN Special Edition novel then enter for a chance to win her gift package. Details below!

Rust Creek Ramblings 


We here at the Gazette are amazed to report that trust-fund cowboy Hudson Jones may soon be off the market. The boyish billionaire has been spending more time than ever with Bella Stockton, who manages his day-care center. It seems impossible that quiet, reserved Bella would have captured the fancy of such an alluring specimen of manhood. 

Bella finds it hard to believe herself, and she keeps pushing Hudson away. What are the odds the footloose cowboy will stick around once he finds out she can't have kids? Don't tell Bella, but our sources report Hudson has his heart set on a Christmas proposal. When he finds out the truth, will it still be a holiday to remember?

Guest Post Sarah Morgan - Miracle on 5th Avenue review-showcase #Giveaway

I'm so excite to welcome you to the first post of my annual Ho Ho Ho Harlequin Holiday 
Extravaganza. Each author is sharing a guest post about something special to them about the holidays.  
There is also a Harlequin sponsored giveaway that will be running through the entire event and I'll add that contest widget on every post.

Sarah is also sponsoring a giveaway of Miracle on 5th Avenue.
So enjoy Sarah's guest post and my review then stop by and enter for your chance to win a copy of her new novel!


It will take a Christmas miracle for two very different souls to find each other in this perfectly festive fairy tale of New York! 

Hopeless romantic Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. She might be spending the holidays alone this year, but when she's given an opportunity to house-sit a spectacular penthouse on Fifth Avenue, she leaps at the chance. What better place to celebrate than in snow-kissed Manhattan? What she didn't expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous—and mysterious—owner. 

Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife's death looming, he's isolated himself in his penthouse with only his grief for company. He wants no interruptions, no decorations and he certainly doesn't appreciate being distracted by his beautiful, bubbly new housekeeper. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings…This Christmas, is Lucas finally ready to trust that happily-ever-afters do exist?
