So for the next 2 weeks, if you are a Netgalley reader and reviewer, you can request my 12.12.18 release of CHRISTMAS & CANNOLIS for read and review!!! Here’s the request link: C&C and if you do happen to request it, all I ask if that you be kind with your review. My poor little fragile ego can only take so much!! hee hee.
If you’re not on Netgalley, never fear, because Barnes and Noble Nook has made C&C a NookFirstLook until next week. Here’s that link: NookFirstLook.
So, I can’t make this any easier, peeps. You’ve got 2 ways to get the book before Amazon and every other on-line bookshop puts it on sale on Dec. 12. Now…it’s up to you!
And to whet you’re book reading appetite, here’s a little about the book:
With Christmas season in full swing, baker Regina San Valentino is up to her elbows in cake batter and cookie dough. Between running her own business, filling her bursting holiday order book, and managing her crazy Italian family, she’s got no time to relax, no room for more custom cake orders, and no desire to find love. A failed marriage and a personal tragedy have convinced her she’s better off alone. Then a handsome stranger enters her bakery begging for help. Regina can’t find it in her heart to refuse him.
Connor Gilhooly is in a bind. He needs a specialty cake for an upcoming fundraiser and puts himself—and his company’s reputation—in Regina’s capable hands. What he doesn’t plan on is falling for a woman with heartbreak in her eyes or dealing with a wise-guy father and a disapproving family.
Can Regina lay her past to rest and trust the man who’s awoken her heart?
It had been a long, long time since a guy’s hands had been on me in anything resembling a carnal way. My ex had decamped to parts unknown five years ago after signing the divorce papers, and I’d been so busy rebuilding my life that adding any kind of relationship to it wasn’t even a notion.
Besides, with my hovering parents, one of whom worked for me while the other popped in daily to check up on their only daughter, I had enough on my plate fending off the men they wanted to introduce me to. Guys who, for the most part, had shady lifestyles, carried concealed, and owed my father innumerable favors. And by favors, I mean the kind that usually get signed for in blood and paid back the same way.
Welcome to mia famiglia.
