#CyberMonday Bookish Event from NN Light #cybermonday2022 #romancebooks #99centssale

I’m so excited to be a part of @NNP_W_Light’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday Bookish Event. Today, my Holiday romance SASHA’S SECRET SANTA is featured here: SSS.

After a terrifying incident derails Sasha Charles’ career and confidence, she moves back to her hometown of Dickens to heal, reorganize, and start over.

The only problem? The paralyzing panic attacks that plague her whenever she thinks about going back to nursing. Sasha is mentally, and emotionally stuck, and has no idea how to move forward.

Steve Caldwell is the new Director of Services at Dickens Memorial Hospital. After witnessing her save the life of a local resident in Dorrit’s Diner, he knows Sasha would be perfect for the new trauma center he’s planning. When she refuses his job offer outright, he sets out to change her mind.

But Sasha has thick, protective walls erected around her so Steve must first break through them. With patience and kindness, he does. As the two grow closer, each begin to have second thoughts on what their futures should look like, until idle, small town gossip threatens to derail their budding relationship.

With the imminent arrival of Christmas, will Steve be able to convince Sasha he has her best interests at heart?

#SmallSaturday an NNLight Bookish Event #small2022 #Readromance #books

I’m so excited to be a part of @NNP_W_Light’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday Bookish Event. Today, my Holiday RomCom FIXING CHRISTMAS is spotlighted here: FC

Christmas has never filled writer Abra Charles with undiluted pleasure. If you’d been left on a doorstep on Christmas Eve morning, you might have a few issues with the holiday as well.


Abra’s avoided her hometown of Dickens for the past twenty Christmas seasons, but now she’s returned in an attempt to get her writing mojo back. Twice-divorced and with her third engagement ending in heartbreak, anger, and blackmail, Abra is now six months behind on submitting her current book. She hopes renting Copperfield House and immersing herself in solitude will cure her writer’s block and get her life back on track. The house she rents isn’t helping her achieve her goal, though, as one thing after another breaks, collapses, or floods.


Colton Bree, Dickens’ very own Mr. FixIt, can’t help but wonder if the new resident of Copperfield House is cursed. After being called to repair a broken window, he’s then needed to fix an exploding coffeepot, an overrunning toilet, and a washing machine that has a mind of its own. Bree doesn’t mind all the unexpected repair jobs, though, because the sexy renter is something to look at despite being a little neurotic and a whole lot of snarky.


Can Abra get her book done with all the distractions and craziness of her life, the biggest distraction being the flannelled hunk with the bedroom eyes and scowling yet oh-so-kissable mouth?

Or will Dickens’ Mr FixIt have to step in and save the day and in so doing, fix Christmas for Abra forever?

#SundaySnippet from tomorrow’s release of SASHA’S SECRET SANTA #dickensromance #smalltown

So tomorrow is finally the day SASHA’S SECRET SANTA releases into the Holiday book reading world and I am uber excited!!!

Today’s snippet is a short one ( thankfully, right?!!LOL) and shows a little playfulness between Sasha and Steve. To set the stage, they are at the Dickens official start to the holiday season – the community tree lighting.

Enjoy!

The distinctive blue in his eyes was almost crystalline from the sun’s momentary appearance through the cloud cover. Sasha found herself envying those eyes. When he honed his gaze in on her, his total attention focused on her face, as if there were no one else around them, her recent thoughts pushed through to the front of her mind again.

Maybe, just maybe, he did…find her attractive, in a she’s-a-woman-I’m-a-man kind of way.

Maybe, just maybe, he had asked her to meet him today because he wanted to spend time with her; get to know her.

And maybe – and she really hoped this one was true – he wasn’t just spending time with her because he wanted to recruit her for the hospital, but because he enjoyed being with her.

Sasha’s breath caught when he leaned in a little closer, so close the warmth of his exhale drifted across her cheeks and made her knees go a little wobbly.

“Yeah, I do,” he said. His lips twitched before he added, “I think, in another life, I was just a…small-town boy…living in a lonely world.”

Her laugh came quick and free and felt so darn good she could have cried. “Did you catch a midnight train to Dickens?”

His own laugh, deep and rich and oh-so-alluring caused several heads to turn toward them, questioning expressions covering them.

“No, but it would make a good story, wouldn’t it?”

“But a better song.”

He shook his head, that charming grin going full wattage.

Honestly. A girl could be blinded by the power and intensity of that small lifting of a pair of lips.

“Gorgeous to look at, smart, sweet, and knows the lyrics to one of my favorite songs from my favorite 80s band. Sasha Charles, where have you been all my life?”

His words, said with a laugh, did more to raise her spirits than the notion of sleeping in past four-thirty in the morning ever could. Thinking quickly, she replied, “Right here in Dickens…waiting up and down the boulevard.”

Steve slammed both hands against his chest, heart-level, sighed loudly and dramatically, and then closed his eyes. “Best day ever,” he said, shaking his head.

Get your copy here, and remember – it’s on KU too! SASHA’S SECRET SANTA

And don’t forget all the other books in the Dickens Holiday Collection: Dickens series

One week countdown! SASHA’S SECRET SANTA #holidayromance #smalltown #medicalromance

Seven more sleeps until this little darling makes its debut in the Holiday book-reading world! I can’t wait to share SASHA’S SECRET SANTA with you all!

The tiny town of Dickens has become a fan favorite and in the 2022 Holiday season, we have several new authors who have contributed stories to the series. You can find the completed list here: DICKENS HOLIDAY ROMANCES

In Sasha’s Secret Santa, Sasha Charles, Amy and Andy’s middle adopted child, returns home.

After a terrifying incident derails her career and confidence, she moves back to her hometown of Dickens to heal, reorganize, and start over.

The only problem? The paralyzing panic attacks that plague her whenever she thinks about going back to nursing. Sasha is mentally, and emotionally stuck, and has no idea how to move forward.

Steve Caldwell is the new Director of Services at Dickens Memorial Hospital. After witnessing her save the life of a local resident in Dorrit’s Diner, he knows Sasha would be perfect for the new trauma center he’s planning. When she refuses his job offer outright, he sets out to change her mind.

But Sasha has thick, protective walls erected around her so Steve must first break through them. With patience and kindness, he does. As the two grow closer, each begin to have second thoughts on what their futures should look like, until idle, small-town gossip threatens to derail their budding relationship.

With the imminent arrival of Christmas, will Steve be able to convince Sasha he has her best interests at heart?

I hope you enjoy this addition to the series. I’d rate it 4 flames for sexy!!!

And don’t forget my other Dorrit’s Diner additions:

ANGEL KISSES & HOLIDAY WISHES ( A Dickens Holiday Romance)

Can a first love be rekindled when the past is filled with heartache?

After a personal tragedy, Sage Hamilton left the town she’d grown up in and the boy she’d given her heart to. With a vow never to return, Sage forged on with her life in order to forget the sadness of her past.

Keith Mills loved Sage from the first moment he spotted her ambling down the hallway of their middle school. And she’d felt the same about him. Or so he’d thought until she’d walked away from everything they’d meant to one another with a tearful and rushed goodbye.

But now, eighteen years later, she’s back and, as the town’s new doctor, it looks like she’s staying. Can Keith put the hurt of Sage’s dismissal to bed for good? And will she want to rekindle the love that had burnt so bright all those years ago?
