SO on this 8th day, I’ve got an anthology that’s equal parts funny and thought provoking. THE WORST HOLIDAY EVER features 2 of my favorite authors ( and a bunch more), Kari Lemor and Kilby Blades.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! OK—scratch that. It’s time for another obligatory family gathering. And nothing spices up the egg nog like bringing your partner home. Surely your belligerent brother-in law, your gimlet-eyed granny and your drunken uncle will keep it classy. With forced proximity and alcoholic beverages, what could possibly go wrong?

So on day 5 I’ve got another of my holiday books, my first Christmas San Valentino book, A KISS UNDER THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.
With Christmas just a few weeks away, Gia San Valentino, the baby in her large, loud, and loving Italian family, yearns for a life and home of her own with a husband and bambini she can love and spoil.

Tim Santini believes he’s finally found the woman for him, but Gia will take some convincing she’s that girl. A misunderstanding has her thinking he’s something he’s not. Can a kiss stolen under the Christmas lights persuade her to spend the rest of her life with him?
