Kathy, you’re up!
Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying December. I’m so excited to be on the blog today to celebrate the release of TEXAS CHRISTMAS MAGIC. I’ve done a little Q&A and I hope you’ll drop your answers in the comments below.
I’m giving away signed copies of my latest series from Harlequin Desire—THE IMAGE PROJECT to one lucky commenter. (The prize will go out in January due to the holidays and a mail strike in the UK.)
- Do you have any favourite family Christmas traditions? If so, what are they?
All of my traditions involve food and family. We bake cookies together on the Sunday before Christmas and sit around talking about the year the oven wasn’t working properly and the cinnamon eyes on the gingerbread man burned through and made them look like something from Halloween! Then on Christmas eve have our version of the feast of the seven fishes which is just eating seafood. Usually I do a fancy salmon dish with rice or spaghetti with a shrimp and garlic sauce.
- When do you open your Christmas presents?
We open our Christmas presents very early on Christmas morning (like 5 a.m.).
- If you could invite any author living or dead to share your Holiday meal, who would it be?
I think that I would invite Charles Dickens. I just watched a special with him and how his book A Christmas Carol influenced our modern Christmas traditions.
- What book would you like to find in your Christmas stocking?
Madly, Deeply: The Alan Rickman Diaries
I hope you’ll check out TEXAS CHRISTMAS MAGIC.
Texas Christmas Magic
Angelica Rossi moved to Whiskey River, Texas, to rebuild after a video of her arguing with an employee went viral. As Christmas approaches, Angelica’s determined to salvage her reputation and help her community by launching a nonprofit aimed at providing resources to the town’s underserved residents. To pull off this miracle, she’ll need to grab the attention of billionaire Max Parrish who’s offering business grants. How? By crashing his holiday party.
Max Parrish is a successful entrepreneur who prides himself on seeing through people’s characters and ulterior motives. When Angelica approaches him during his business Christmas party, he knows she’s not on his carefully curated guest list. Still, he lets her make her pitch. Her beauty and confidence intrigue him, and her proposal is nearly as tempting as she is. Max knows firsthand how important second chances are, so he agrees to fund Angelica’s grant with strings…him.
Max and Angelica find themselves collaborating over her business plan during the town’s festive holiday traditions. But Max has been fooled before. Will Angelica’s good intentions last beyond the holiday?
