Evernight Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Evernight Holiday Blog Hop!
We love the holidays, we love making our readers happy and we love giving away swag. What better way to do that than to hold a blog hop?

Here's how it works... the more blogs you hop to (shown below) the more chance you have of winning prizes. Each site on the hop is offering a prize and Evernight is offering an iPad 2 as the grand prize! To be in with a chance of winning the site prize simply follow the blog you're visiting and leave a comment which includes your email address. Each entry on each blog is then counted towards the grand prize draw. The more entries you have, the better your chance of winning that iPad 2! You also get extra points for liking the Evernight Facebook page!/evernightpublishing. Just make sure you let us know in the comments that you've done so.
Happy hopping!

I happen to love Evernight's anthologies, and I'd like to highlight a couple of KINKY Christmas collections my work appears in.

Vanilla-Free Christmas ~ contains my MMF menage story "Three in a Tub:"
This Christmas, Cathy's elderly mother is coming to stay... and staying forever. Cathy's not delighted that her mother is moving in. How is she going to hide her romantic relationship with Jeremy, the young tenant in her basement suite? In preparation of her mother's arrival, Cathy brings in sexy Vance to install a new bathtub that will be easy for her mother to use. She never imagined Jeremy and Vance would team up to give her the gift of a lifetime!

And my story's only one of NINE in this 70,000-word anthology.

If you're interested, get your copy today from Evernight Publishing:

Or All Romance:

Vanilla-Free Christmas: Manlove Edition ~ contains my romantic comedy "Enough About Earl:"
This Christmas, good will isn’t all these sexy men are going to get…

Ménage loving and chance encounters will make the holidays merry and bright and hot enough to keep out the cold. From a romp in Santa’s candy house to a dinner party where chains and collars are required attire, Christmas for these naughty men is going to be anything but vanilla.

Be Warned: m/m sex, m/m/m ménage sex, BDSM, sex toys, rimming

~5 Author Kink Anthology~
Boughs of Love by Rebecca Brochu
Dressed for Dinner by Pelaam
Tied with a Bow by Nicola Cameron
Enough About Earl by Giselle Renarde
The Christmas Cookies by Troy Storm  

Even though this antho isn't all about the cutesy, "Enough About Earl" is actually kind of an adorable romantic comedy:

Cam is sick of hearing about Earl, Earl, Earl from his best friend Jodee. Jodee talks about this coworker so often Cam wonders if she's about to dump him for another gay BFF. When they arrive at her office Christmas party, he finally gets to meet this Earl he's heard so much about, and he's surprised that, actually, Earl's not to bad. Who'd have thought two rivals for Jodee's friendship would end up gettin' it on right there at the office party?

Vanilla-Free Christmas: Manlove Edition is now available from Evernight Publishing:

All Romance:

You know what I just realized? I still have one e-copy each of two friends-to-lovers anthologies published by Evernight that I can give away.  One is Lover Unexpected: Manlove Edition, and the other is Lover Unexpected: Sappho Edition.  If you'd like to win one of these two collections, mention the title in your comment.

Happy Holidays!
