Hott Synopsis:

With a heavy heart Ashley tries to get into the Christmas Spirit with the help of her friends and some adorable angles.

Until a mission goes terribly wrong and Ashley may have to change her heart forever.

Hott Review:

Wow. This is quite a good book but it’s not light nor is it superficial. This is a very heart wrenching story about fear and trust. It was so funny but at the middle I couldn’t image that there was so much left to the story but at the end I realized that the ‘extra pages’ were the best part!
The only thing I didn’t enjoy was that it switched around a lot. We saw what was going on and remembered from both Ashley’s and Nick’s points of view. It wasn’t confusing – it was very well laid out – but it’s not something I always enjoy.

Author Bio:

I believe in true love, soul mates, romance, and happily ever after. I see life through romantic eyes, no matter what curve balls get tossed into the mix…

I grew up in Michigan but moved to Annapolis, Maryland in the late 1990s, and from there came to reside in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Southwest Virginia. When I’m not writing, I can be found hiking in the mountains with one or more of my rescue dogs and a camera – and even sometimes my family. When I’m writing, I will often look out the window into my garden hoping for (and often finding) inspiration. Among the highlights in my garden:

Argiope aurantia, AKA the black and yellow argiope is also called banana spider, yellow garden spider, zipper spider, golden orb weaver and the writing spider. Seriously, can there be a better muse than something actually referred to as a writing spider? But I enjoy the various flowers and plants I grows in my garden, too…as well as an abundance of wildlife other than spiders, including vultures, deer, racoons, rabbits, and, recently bears.

I’m a TV drama junkie (especially USA Network, TNT, and Lifetime) and I’m a movieholic, with a preference for action movies or romantic comedies, depending on my mood. I am an absolutely voracious reader. Oh, and I write romantic fiction.
