Forever Winter
(Sweet Historical Romance)

After two disastrous London seasons, Susanna Lorican received a marriage proposal from a neighborhood friend, an esteemed Viscount, which saved her family from society gossip. She had adored him since childhood but never expected the man of her dreams to reciprocate the feelings. Susanna soon planned the perfect Christmas Eve wedding but never expected a snowstorm to barrel through the English countryside on the morning of.

Viscount Camden Beckinworth had lived the life of a devil-may-care rake until his parents’ untimely death five years earlier. Returning home to save the crumbling family business, he cast aside his personal life and buried himself in his parents’ finances, focusing on nothing but honoring his family name. Once he decided that it was time to take a wife, now that the business thrived, he finally realized that the pesky little sister of his two best childhood friends had grown into a beautiful woman. He wanted her as his wife more than anything else.

Susanna and Camden vowed to let nothing thwart their long-awaited day, even though the dress and several guests were delayed because of icy roads. But when the reverend fell from his horse and injured his head, they had little choice but to postpone. To worsen matters, Susanna’s insufferable brother-in-law cornered and then assaulted her in the library.

Despite their trials and tribulations, the young couple never wavered from their goal: marriage and a long life together. After all, happily ever after came only once in a lifetime.

A Hero's Heart 
(Spicy Contemporary Romance)

Ten years ago, Jarrett Brandt left home and abandoned everyone of importance. After a hard reality check, the irresponsible young man matured into a ballsy DEA agent with a kickass Harley Davidson and a million-dollar bounty on his head. Ordered by his superior officer to take refuge at a safe house just days before Christmas, he headed back home to Washington State, instead, to make peace with his deceased brother’s memory. 

Marissa Reinn Brandt never expected to see Jarrett again. Best friends since childhood and lovers as teenagers, immaturity, over-demanding parents and illicit drugs ripped them apart. Now a successful chef at a posh restaurant, the young widow and her son offered Jarrett a place to stay for the holiday. Even though she expected nothing from her former lover—the twin brother of the man she married—fate intervened.

As Jarrett and Marissa rekindled the flames of love and lust that once bound them together, an enemy from his past and a trusted mentor from his present vied their time in the snowy dark and threatened to destroy everyone he held dear. He needed a Christmas miracle to save his family and the love of a good woman to heal his battered heart. Nothing, no one, would stand in the way of his second chance with Marissa. Come hell or high water, he would cherish her body and her heart for all time.

    I live in Venezuela, but don't worry I have a PO Box in Miami ;) if I win it won't be a problem ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway, the jewelry is beautiful

    1. I love the changing color of leaves/trees too. Nature is pretty amazing.
      Thanks for entering. A PO Box in Miami will work great.

  2. Thanks for being a part of the Spring Fling Blog Hop!

  3. I love seeing the colors of flowers that signal winter is finally over.

    1. Same here. Summer and winter are my least favorite seasons. Cheery spring flowers and gold/red autumn leaves are so beautiful.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I love the slow warming up and the flowers blooming :)

  5. Hi Amber,
    Love the cover on Hero's Heart. I love my spring flowers that peek out of the ground while everything else is dead. I think of them as optimists.

  6. I celebrate Spring by beautifying my front porch with all manner of plants, flowers and decorative pots. I finish up with a new cushion for my favorite chair and I'm set for endless days of reading and relaxing.


    1. That's a great idea. I always spring clean around the house and care for my gardens but my poor porch usually goes unattended. My lounge chair could really use a new cushion. :)
      Thanks so much!

  7. well i was born in spring so spring flowers are my fav (roses of all colors to be exact) and the autumn leaves to play in with the kiddos!!! summer is too hot a lot of the time and winter is too cold so spring and fall seem to have the perfect temps for me :)

    1. Roses are one of my favs too. They're so classic and elegant. I was born in the month of Halloween (my favorite holiday *wink*) so I'm partial to fall. Spring is my second best. I love when the earth regrows and flowers bloom. The warmth is perfect; ie - not too hot. :)
      Thanks for stopping by.

  8. I love the warmer temperatures and the beautiful flowers blossoming :)

    1. Also forgot! Lol
