End of the Year Sales

Merry Christmas, everyone! There aren’t many days left of this year, of this decade, in fact. I’m perfectly fine with another year gone by, but thinking in ten-year chunks does scare me a bit, I have to admit. Not that I fear getting older, but ten more years and the kids will be on their way out of the house, and where does that leave me?

But, I’m not posting here today to speculate about where I’ll be in 2030, I wanted to let you know that, as always, when we’re coming to the end of the year, there will be some book sales.

Right now there are two different sales running, a Holiday Sale over at JMS-Books, and Smashwords End Of The Year Sale. So if you want some books to read over the holidays, you’ll find mine here:

The Christmas Curse

I was hunting for a Christmas book, and I’ve had The Christmas Curse by Ruby Moone in my kindle library for two years I think without reading it – it was time.

I know I’m repeating myself (over and over) by saying I don’t normally read historical stories, but I do love paranormal so I figured I had nothing to lose. And I’m not sorry!

This short story is adorable.  It’s December and Jared Templeton is all alone, avoiding his families festivities because of all the young women his mother is trying to get him to marry, plus he’s a spy so he can’t really tell anyone what he does.

But then one day, a huge stray dog starts follow him home from work every day. The closer to Christmas they’re coming, the more Jared is opening up and is talking to the dog.

Then, like in Cinderella, the clock strikes twelve and Jared’s entire world changes.

I wish it had been a little longer, just a little bit more. The characters are great but the ending a bit abrupt. Still, a great Christmas read, though! Historical and all LOL.


Snowy nature with a large wolf like dog and a handsome manIt’s almost Christmas 1806, and government agent Jared Templeton finds himself adopted by a beautiful stray dog as he walks his customary route each night to his Mayfair home. Having never owned a dog before, Jared is surprised to find himself talking to the beast. It’s wonderfully easy and lifts some of the heavy burdens he carries.

Eventually Jared confides in the dog, not only secrets about his work as an agent, but also the biggest secret about himself. About his innermost desires and needs, safe in the knowledge his companion will never betray him.

But at the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, Jared discovers things are not quite what they seem …

About Last Night

I  thought we’d have us another little short story by Clare London (read one not too long ago). About Last Night is just a few pages long. I found it on a list of Christmas reads and figured I could do with another Clare London LOL.

Now, I have to say it’s not very Christmassy at all, the only indication of it being in the holiday season is a mentioning about there not being many shops open, but that’s good enough for me.

Roger and Allen are friends, but one thing led to another, and when we meet them, Roger is on one side of the front door after having been out to buy breakfast and Allen is on the other, wondering if their night together had been a mistake.

It’s cute! Friends to lovers and a conversation through a closed door LOL.


About Last NightRoger only popped out for breakfast supplies. Was that long enough for Allen to have second thoughts?
