WHAT’S MY FAVORITE PARANORMAL ROMANCE NOVEL WITH A HOLIDAY IN IT? This does not have to be a holiday book  – just has to have a holiday in it.

Why, that would be My Familiar Stranger, of course. Christmas expressed as Yule because it is an alternate dimension.

My Familiar Stranger can be downloaded for FREE at any of these links:





HAPPY HOPPING and visit all these blogs participating.


  1. Love this blog hop, =) havn´t read your Familiar Stranger yet, so my fav Holiday PNR would have to be Hot for the Holidays by Lora Leigh, Angela Knight, Anya Bast and Allyson James, there´s smut, fluff and cheer =D

    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Saturday!

  2. One of my favourite holiday PNR is All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks. Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂


  3. Love My Familiar Stranger, can’t wait to read The witch’s dream. Just one suggestion, less is more, the cover are really hideous, has nothing to do with the book. Try better covers, the book is great but if I was judging it by the cover I’d never read it. Just a suggestion.

    • Have spent the past twenty-four hours giving this consideration. When I get a comment like this I always mull it over. It’s very hard for me to be unbiased about my covers.

      Thank you for saying that I am a better writer than 50 Shades. All I can say to that is I would certainly hope so.

      What would be ideal, I think, would be the ability to offer a variety of covers with every book and say to the potential reader, “Pick the one you like best and it is the one that will come with your e-book.”

      Yesterday I saw a blog post that had Karen Marie Moning’s Fever Series covers side by side as “originals” and “later mass market”. The blogger then asked fans of K.M.M. to choose which they liked better. There were votes for both. What I’m getting at is that I do understand that you don’t like the covers and would like to see the art go a different direction, but choices have to be made and no matter what those choices are, the result is not going to appeal to everyone.

      Thank you for writing.

  4. I loved My Familiar Stranger! The story line was fabulous, it only took me a day to read it (I’m just a fast and dedicated reader). The Witch’s Dream took a little longer, I made myself slow way down to enjoy it, the way a smart woman does for Sex!! And The Witch’s Dream was truly orgasmic! I’m ready for the Summoner’s Tale, bring it on!!

    • Denise – Your comment about smart women made me smile. I may have to plagiarize that. The Summoner’s Tale is a big part of my day – every day – and is on schedule. It’s not orgasmic, but it is exciting! I actually intend for these first three books to be read together and think that, once the third comes out, readers will start to “get” the vision that it’s really one story in three books. Thanks for writing.

  5. I don’t really have any PNR books that I have read that were holiday based. But Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series had a nice Christmas scene in one of the books. Not sure which cause I read them all in a big block over a weekend!

  6. I’m going to have to peruse my Kindle and see what PNR I have that are holiday themed. I’m a big fan of Thea Harrison and Lauren Dane, but also devour Dana Marie Bell like she’s crack. I did love Maya Banks Love Me, Still. I loved the character depth.

  7. Is an angel a paranormal, I think???… Angel be Good is the one I am currently reading and so far its pretty good… Its like A Christmas Story but with a twist


  8. My favorite Christmas scene in a book was in A book that was not PNR.. So I choose a scene in one of Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld short stories staring Clay and Elena.
