Jenna is running from an over-bearing father and Jack is running from the pain of his past. A terrible car accident throws this mismatched couple together for a heartwarming Christmas story--Snow Angel
That's right! I just signed a contract with Passion In Print for my Novella - Snow Angel. Coming Soon! I'll be sure to shout out the release date as soon as I have one! I'm so happy to have a Christmas story for the Holidays! Yes, it's written by ADELLE Laudan , so it's not a hot erotic tale, but I promise it will warm your heart.

I've got a fun Thursday 13 planned for this week.On November 4th is Blog Blast for Peace. I am totally looking forward to that.
We had a lovely turkey dinner at my best friends' house today. I love a good turkey stuffing, and she's a master when it comes to cooking. I think it's mandatory after a good feed of turkey to turn in early, which is where I am headed now. Why do I have a feeling my muse is going to make this difficult?
G'nite, sleep tight, and may all your dreams come true.
