Dessert Day at the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

I looooooove cooking. But even people who don't enjoy it the other eleven months of the year usually like to toss some flour and sugar around once the holidays hit. Our theme for the blog hop today is desserts, and I'm sharing one of my favorite festive recipes: cranberry swirl cheesecake. Best of all, it is from the brilliant minds at Cooking Light, so you can eat it guilt-free! The link takes you to my Pinterest page, so take a few extra minutes to poke around!

But this blog hop isn't just about yummy food. The other fun side to it is introducing you to new authors. And today I'm proud to feature Cynthia Gail and her Christmas book.

Winter's MagicWinter's Magic by Cynthia Gail Owner of La Bella Vita, a five-star day spa nestled in the affluent suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, Beth Sergeant knows her elite clientele first hand. She attended their private schools. She was even engaged, although briefly, to one of their most recognized bachelors. But she never fit in to their social-elite world. After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. When he chooses to socialize, he has a never-ending list of exclusive events and beautiful women vying for his attention. Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda. Beth can’t resist Nick’s charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she’s nothing like other women Nick's dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick's past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.
