Silent Night Seduction



Wouldn’t you like to be kidnapped for the holidays? 
Are you getting ready for the holidays? Counting down how many days you have before you need to be ready for Santa? Are the kid’s wish lists so ridiculous that you don’t even know where to start? Or your holiday guest list runs a mile long? Or no one understands that you are Santa Claus?
I’d say run away…
Or better yet…Get kidnapped! 
That’s what happened to Lily McCormick. Her brother Shane kidnaps her and sticks her on a plane to Alaska. Now what would a cowgirl from Texas know about snow and freezing temperatures?
Obviously, not a whole lot with her cowboy boots and denim skirts…in the cold? To Lily, she’s landed in Winter Wonderland Hell
It gets even worse when she finds out that her ex-husband is there for a one-night stand set up by a famous matchmaking service. What’s a girl to do but make it into a more memorable holiday?
At least she’s able to avoid the mall…unlike some of us. Avoid the disaster at the grocery stores or arguing with some fat woman over some cashmere scarf. Maybe we should all just hop on a plane and go to Alaska. Too cold?
Where would you want to be kidnapped to for the holidays? 
Silent Night’s Seduction
Blurb:
Stubborn and proud cowgirl, Lily McCormick, is finally coming to terms with her quiet life on her parent’s ranch, until her older brother, as payback, signs her up for 1NightStand. Kidnapped and forced onto a plane to a foreign location, she faces the dreaded cold and an unwanted tryst, until her ex-husband appears before her…as her date.
New York City District Attorney, Rafe Martinez, would do anything to get his ex-wife back, even if it meant taking drastic measures to pretend he was there for another woman. When jealousy and rage surfaces and Lily’s tough demeanor wanes, desire and lust sparks their once powerful connection as truths unfold. Will Rafe convince her to return to him or push her further away from giving their love a second chance? 



Excerpt:
A curse erupted into the room. “You came here for a one-night stand?”
The rage in her tone lightened his heart. If she could be angry with him then she must care for him still. Pouring himself a drink, he took his time answering. “Actually, more than that.” He turned around. “It’s three days before Christmas. I hope to spend the whole time with my date and escort her to the ball on Christmas Eve.”
Lily’s mouth dropped open then closed. “Well, good for you. But let me ask you, where is your date?”
Rafe frowned. “You know, that’s a good question. Why and how are you in my room?”
“This is my room!”
He stilled, praying she wouldn’t see through him. “That can’t be. I specifically requested a brunette as my date.”
Lily sputtered. “You—you cad!”
“This must be a mistake.” He went over to the chair he’d occupied earlier and pulled his phone out of his coat pocket. “I’ll email Madame Eve and get this straightened out. Worse comes to worst, you can go request a different room.”
An outraged gasp sounded behind him. “Why do I have to be the one to leave?”
He whirled around and gave her what he hoped was a convincing bewildered look. “Unless…you’re my date?”
She paused. “Hell no.” 



Shy tomboy Jenna Faulkner has been in love her whole life—with her best friend. Except he’s marrying the wrong woman, and he doesn’t know it yet. But she’s determined to save him.
Instead of the normal bachelor party, Jenna decides to throw a different type of gathering…with just her. Alone. Will Cade finally come to his senses and see Jenna for more than a friend, or has she ruined their friendship once and for all?


Releasing December 23rd
Sarah Westfall is on a mission. Living the mundane life of a near spinster school teacher and sick of her parents throwing eligible men at her, she is determined to get over her crush on her best friend’s brother. She wants a prince and wouldn’t settle for less. What better way than a 1Night Stand?
Evan Hunt needs to figure out his enemy’s game plan. Chasing his nemesis to Las Vegas and signing up for Madame Eve’s service and masquerade, he never expected the woman he’s desired for years to appear before him…as his princess. 
When their attraction fires the night, the inevitable happens. Her prince isn’t as charming as she’s hoped, but he does save her from trouble. Would he be willing to fulfill her fantasies also?

Hi Clarissa,
Thanks so much for visiting. Please help yourself to the buffet. Tyrell (bartender) has stocked it with all his favorites. I think I see some mini quiche and pigs in a blanket. Is that salmon dip? And the bar is open. Help yourself and have a good time.

I can't wait to read Silent Night Seduction. Hopefully I can get a little reading done in the next few days. This is definitely on my wish list.
