HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS - with a giveaway!


My pal Jill Shalvis is one of the three authors in the Blaze anthology, HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS. As you've probably figured out from the cover, these are firefighter romances and while yes, they are short, they are incredibly sweet and (no pun intended, seriously) they're hot! I'm not doing a review because I'm way late with already scheduled reviews for Karin Tabke and Elizabeth Scott (Janice Maynard's alter ego) - but I did do a quick read and I recommend it to everyone who enjoys Christmas romances.
I'm giving away a copy of HEATING UP THE HOLIDAYS and all you have to do is leave a comment saying that you're interested and you'll be entered. I'll draw the winning name on Monday evening. If you don't want to wait to see if you're the winner, then hop on over to Amazon and get a copy pronto!
I hope everyone has a great weekend - does anyone have any fun plans? Lindsay and I are going to our downtown's "First Friday" with some friends. The first Friday of each month all of the downtown stores stay open later and there are hot chocolate and spiced cider stations downtown, fire barrels where you can roast marshmallows if you want and this month there will be carolers singing. We're going to eat at a hole in the wall diner downtown called The Hamburger Inn. It's been around forever and does it ever have character - and the best cheeseburgers ever! I'm hoping to get my Christmas decorations out on Saturday and then my office is having it's Christmas dinner in the evening. It's looking like another busy weekend!

I am definitely interested! I love firefighters, and who wouldn't want one for Christmas?

My plans for the weekend are to do a whole bunch of baking this weekend and then to enjoy my family's Christmas open house tomorrow, which all the baking is for.

Tomorrow is the SEC championship, so we will be watching that here. Then tomorrow night, I'm having people over for a Flirting With Forty movie party. The premiere is on Lifetime tomorrow night, if anyone wants to check it out. :)

Happy Holidays!

We have it snowing hard here now, and I was so hoping to finally get out tomorrow since hubby has a weekend off from work. If it does, I do want to get some shopping done so I can make chili! Its been too long and its great to have on these cold winter nights here! Too, some book shopping of course!

I hope you enjoyed First Friday- sounds like a lot of fun. A town not too far from mine is doing something similar this weekend and I am hoping to convince the family to attend.

Please enter me in the contest for Heating up the Holidays- can't go wrong with a hot firefighter romance:)
