Today's featured author is me again! I have two books from my Mountain Rescue Romance series on sale. Book 1, His Christmas Wish, is 99 cents for a limited time and Book 2, Her Christmas Series, is free until the end of the month. The first book was inspired by a climbing accident on Mount Hood, and the second book came about after a dear friend, who was a member of Portland Mountain Rescue and helped me with the research for book one, fell and needed to be rescued himself. He answered so many questions for me, and yes, I did ask his permission to let what happened to him inspire me. Though I waited until he was out of the hospital and healing! He is no longer with us—a BASE jumping accident took his life—and these books are such a reminder of him to me.
First up is book one…
When tragedy strikes, everything Carly Bishop ever loved about Christmas is destroyed.
Distraught and grief-stricken over the deaths of her fiancé and only brother, Carly left Hood Hamlet and her Christmas spirit behind to start over somewhere new. But now, six years later, her pregnant sister-in-law needs help, so Carly comes home to face her past and…the holiday she no longer celebrates.
Mountain rescuer Jake Porter believes he could have saved his two friends that fateful day and kept the Bishop family from experiencing such a heart-wrenching loss. He hopes helping Carly rediscover the magic of Christmas will help him finally move forward with his life, but he's not certain anything is a match for the guilt that's kept him stuck all these years.
As Jake and Carly spend more time together, attraction grows, but toe-curling mistletoe kisses aside, his late best friend would never think Jake was good enough for his little sister. The question is, is that enough reason for him to stay away from her?
His Christmas Wish is available in eBook and paperback formats. Print books make great Christmas gifts!
And now for book two, the freebie….
Sean Hughes likes being single—much to his family’s dismay. They want him to settle down…now. When he gives fun-loving snowboarder Zoe Flynn a ride to the slopes, Sean hatches a plan to throw off his matchmaking relatives. He asks Zoe to pose as his girlfriend at Thanksgiving dinner, which will take the pressure off him and make the evening more enjoyable all around.
Zoe agrees to be Sean’s fake girlfriend. Who wouldn’t want a free meal or a chance to hang out with the handsome mountain rescuer and his adorable husky? When an injury occurs, the two are forced to continue their one-night ruse. As Christmas approaches, make-believe turns into reality. But Zoe has a secret…a big one.
Is their new relationship strong enough to withstand the truth, or will she find herself with no one to kiss at midnight on New Year’s Eve?
Her Christmas Secret is available in eBook and paperback.
