Though she went to State and usually medaled at swim meets, Katherine says her heart wasn't in swimming but rather in the stories she created as she swam laps at practice.

On this election day, I hope you all get out and vote.  But as a break from politics…how about Christmas!

herchristmascowboy-300dpi-300x450I love Christmas and I love Mariette, Mt–the fictional world created by Tule Publishing where I have set so many stories.  Readers have been asking for retired Marine hero Lane Scott’s story since he first appeared in A Cowboy For Christmas back in 2013.  And I’m happy to say it’s here.

Her Christmas Cowboy has all the feels that I love in a holiday story.  It’s got a sweet, shy girl who knew Lane in high school, lots of Christmas fun and of course a chance to catch up with all of the Scott Brothers and their new wives.

Because Christmas to me is tied to eating, drinking and watching holiday movies those things play a big part in Lane and Felicity’s story.  One of the games they play is a quick fire.  A game where they have to choose between two holiday themed things quickly.

Here’s a snippet of the scene:

“Quick fire,” he said. “We each fire off three questions in turn. Sound good?”

She carefully sat down and then took a sip of her hot chocolate. Her favorite part of drinking it this way was when the whipped cream melted in her mouth as the hot liquid hit it. She opened her eyes to find Lane sitting next to her, watching her.

She licked her lips.

His eyes tracked the movement.

She set her cup down as a slow heat began to build inside of her. She was trying to play it cool but there was no way to do that around Lane. He was seriously built and just everything about him made her think of being back in his muscly arms. Feeling the warmth of his naked body against hers as he moved over her.

“Favorite Christmas TV show?” she blurted out.

He gave her a knowing grin and took his time settling back on the blankets. He moved with surety and confidence, which she had come to expect.

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” he said. “Yours?”

Grinch—the animated one not the Jim Carrey one.”

He arched one eyebrow at her. “Midnight mass or the kids’ evening mass with the nativity?”

“Nativity—and not just because my students are usually in it. I like celebrating the holiday with kids.”

“Same,” he said.

His eyes were intense as he watched her and she was on the cusp of asking him to spend the night. Which she thought might be too soon considering they’d only had one date. “Snowy kisses or mistletoe ones?”

“If I’m kissing you: both,” he said. “But otherwise snowy because I’m kissing someone I want to and not because of tradition.”

***

I thought it would be fun to play here today.  Answer these holiday quick fire questions to be entered to win the e-book version of Her Christmas Cowboy for yourself and a friend!
