Considering the fact that I have been super good this year and I hardly ever lie about such things,
I would love a new pair of handcuffs. Mine are missing. I think my new neighbor took them. He
is the son of evil incarnate. Don’t stop at his place. I would also love a T-Shirt that says ‘Reapers
do it with the Dead.’ And since you’ll be here anyway, could you also drop off a year’s supply
of hot chocolate? With marshmallows? And a pair of boxers that say ‘Don’t act like your not
On second thought, if you do happen to stop at my new neighbor’s house, can you grab my cuffs
with said new neighbor in them? You can drop them anywhere.
Oh, and if it will fit in your bag, world peace.
Thanks and happy holidays!

It has been a great year in the literary world and I must say…from my requests last year you have given me everything on my list. My family is doing great, my great reads continue, friendship with my UTC gals-even tighter, I’m meeting more and new authors and I got the purse I wanted. But one thing I always wanted is to attend a big conference. My goal for the next year is to attend ONE and I should be content. I ask that you back me up on this. I know it sounds totally fan girl but I could just imagine being in a room with authors I love…….all in ONE room. *thud*

I have a DELICIOUS cookie for you, but I’m afraid you gonna have to work for it, and before you ask me if I’ve been a good girl, I must ask you, have you been a good boy??? Because if you have been paying attention to my literary endeavors, a good answer would be, “no ma’am, I’ve been a naughty, naughty boy”….And you might just get that cookie after all.
No, but seriously, here are some the things I like to have in 2013:
1- Another hero like JZB, so I can I dream again.
2- Ms. Gabaldon to hurry and publish the final novel of the Outlander series, I think 3 + years of waiting is long enough.
3- Chronicles of the Warlands published on audio.
4 -T-h-e- -g-i-r-l-s- -a-t- -U-T-C- -t-o- -f-i-x- -t-h-e- -s-e-a-r-c-h- -w-i-d-g-e-t-… Damn! You work fast….LOL
5- World peace….OK, OK, I’ll settle for a night with David Gandy (refer to the book Dark Lover for specifics).
And last but not least, for all my family and friends to be healthy and prosperous.
Dreaming of a hard..oops!….White Christmas
I don’t want a lot for Christmas, just a few small things I need. I want Kyle Gilchrist (ONE NIGHT RODEO by Lorelei James) to wake me up like he does Celia. Then I’ll walk to the Christmas tree and find Kalen Black (BLACK MOON by J.D. Tyler) waiting sitting by the fire all wrapped and pretty waiting for me to unwrap. Of course, I might’ve been a little naughty this year, so Grant Waters (FALL INTO YOU by Roni Loren) will have to take matters into this own hands to make sure I get the appropriate punishment. After that, I just want to ride on the back of Deuce West’s bike (UNDENIABLE by Madeline Sheehan). See? Not a lot. And that way you don’t have to decide whether I’ve been naughty or nice. 😉

Since this letter came via armed messenger—and that messenger now has a gun pressed against your temple—you don’t have to double check to know I’m on the naughty list. You have five seconds to change your mind about my status before yours is deemed code red. And I’m not talking the color of candy canes. I’ll wait. Good choice. Here’s the deal. I’m a contract killer, as hardcore as a man can be, and the few friends I have call me “grumpy.” Truth is, they wouldn’t call me anything if they’d ever come face to face with the beast living inside me. Oh, yeah. Did I mention I’m half man, half monster? Anyway. There’s this girl. Vika Lucas. She’s hot, she’s delicate, she’s deaf. She’s also my greatest enemy’s daughter. I want her. It’s true I threatened to kill her the first time I saw her. Her dad, the owner of a dark and twisted circus, had just locked me in a cage and placed me in the menagerie as the main attraction. I was having a bad day.
If you could deliver Vika’s heart by Christmas, that’d be great.
Your friend, Solomon Judah
PS: You do realize I was speaking figuratively about her heart, right?

The breathtaking first novel in New York Times best selling author Gena Showalter’s new paranormal romance series, Otherworld Assassins, featuring a black ops agent who is captured and enslaved…and the beautiful deaf girl who holds the key to his salvation…
THE SWEETEST TEMPTATION…
Black ops agent Solomon Judah awakens caged and bound in a twisted zoo where otherworlders are the main attraction. Vika Lukas, the owner’s daughter, is tasked with Solo’s care and feeding. The monster inside him yearns to kill her on sight, even though she holds the key to his escape. But the human side of him realizes the beautiful deaf girl is more than she seems—she’s his.
THE ULTIMATE PRICE…
Vika endures the captives’ taunts and loathing, hoping to keep them alive even if she can’t free them. Only, Solo is different—he protects her. But as hostility turns to forbidden romance, his feelings for her will be used against him…and he’ll be put to a killer test.
