Funny & Sweet Christmas Release!

The second most exciting day in a writer's life is release day (the first being the day you sell the book, of course). There's such a thrill about knowing your book is out there in the world, (hopefully) making people laugh and smile and lift their spirits. I've got an extra dose of that today, because my newest release is full of Christmas spirit.

I'm honored to be in an anthology with the New York Times bestsellers Jaci Burton and Helen Kay Dimon. Their stories are heartwarming and wonderful. But today I'm focusing on my story in the anthology, Ask Her At Christmas. It is chock full of a wintry Chicago setting, two people who'll do anything in the name of friendship, and enough Christmasy festive details to make you swear you're smelling the cocoa and pine trees.

Here's a blurb to get you in the spirit:

Caitlin McIntyre's heart stops when her best friend drops to one knee and proposes. Kyle Lockhart never once hinted over the years that he has any idea she's in love with him. Not wanting to jeopardize their friendship, she's never let it slip. Good thing, too, since it turns out he's only practicing—he's about to propose to someone else.

A business merger might not be the most romantic reason to propose to a woman he barely knows, but Kyle's determined to win the respect of the dying father who's never seen him as quite good enough. Kyle's always depended on Caitlin's friendship, while trying to ignore the physical response she arouses. So he turns to her when it comes time to craft his proposal, not realizing his decision will affect their relationship, forever.
This Christmas, Kyle and Caitlin get one last chance to admit their feelings for each other, and find a mutual happily ever after, before he commits his life to another woman and Caitlin leaves town and him…for good.

You can purchase the anthology or my novella alone. Happy Holidays!
