Winter is my favorite time of year (well, after autumn and all its beautiful leaves).  I love the cold because I get to wear sweaters and hold hands with my sweetie.  Watching snow falling is both peaceful and exciting.  And very romantic.

So with winter here and Christmas right around the corner, I’ve paired two of my works that should warm your heart with holiday romance and get you ready for a tropical island getaway come January.

Today is release day for my new Christmas story, An Almost Perfect Christmas.  It’s an old-fashioned romance at Christmas (think White Christmas or Christmas in Connecticut) with some humor and a little hot sex thrown in. 🙂

APC 1600

As Pam Kimball and her computer geek boyfriend, Roger Ware, prepare to celebrate their first Christmas together, Pam is having doubts about their relationship.  Roger can barely stop working at his new software business long enough to join her under the tree. And when he does, her present to him backfires, bringing their lovemaking plans to a crashing halt. So when Roger announces his plans to leave after Christmas to visit his family have changed and he won’t be back for New Year’s Eve, Pam fears the worst. Does the man she loves really care for her, or might a break-up be her present this Christmas Eve? Will there be enough magic in the air to turn this disastrous Christmas into a perfect one?

An Almost Perfect Christmas is available at Amazon and Smashwords.

Also today, Almost Perfect, the original novella with the same characters, Pam and Roger, is available for pre-order at Amazon.  It’s set on a deserted island, just where you’ll want to be when the weather gets really cold in January. Now here’s my brand new cover for Almost Perfect.  The cover alone should generate some heat!

Almost Perfect Final

Pamela Kimball’s birthday present, a One Perfect Night adventure, promises to jump-start her life, put a new man in her bed, and help her forget her past.  Unfortunately, movie-buff Pam’s Pirates of the Caribbean fantasy takes an alarming wrong turn when she’s abandoned on a not quite deserted island—with ex-husband Roger Ware.

Forced by hunger to accept Roger’s offer of dinner, Pam realizes the geek she used to be married to has transformed into one of the most charming, sexiest men she’s ever met. His newfound confidence—and hot body—re-kindles old fires.  A simple kiss leads Roger to challenge her to discover how much his lovemaking skills have improved, leaving Pam torn between self-preservation and burning desire.

With time running out before they’re rescued, Pam must decide if her heart can survive the consequences of becoming Roger’s “almost” perfect night.

Almost Perfect is available for pre-order at Amazon.
