Thanksgiving Wrap-up

        Hello, gentle readers! Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I know I did (and yes, we’re still eating leftovers, but that’s okay. I love Thanksgiving leftovers!).
        My son and his beautiful wife were able to come out for the holiday (along with their dogs). I will admit, our first night together was a little hairy. My pups don’t know my son’s dogs, but it turned out all right. After getting to know each other, they all got along…even Bella. She’s the Chihuahua and believe it or not, she is the boss, which is kinda funny…Kane, my son’s other dog, is a ninety pound German shepherd and even though my girls are less than five months old, they caught on pretty quick that this little nine pound wonder ruled the roost!        
I know I promised not to over-do with the cooking and the baking and the cleaning, but…well…it wasn’t a promise I was able to keep. I did go overboard, but that’s okay, too. Everything turned out wonderfully and my turkey looked like something out of a magazine!
It was nice having a couple days off from the day job as well, so all in all, a lovely visit with my son, some good food, and a day or two to just relax (which I really needed...I'm a little tired now).
I will admit that I was bad and did not work on my latest story in progress (truthfully, I didn’t want to miss hanging out with my kid and his wife), but that all changes tomorrow, which is Monday. It’s back to the routine of writing in the morning then heading off to the day job.

Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go.

About One of a Kind Christmas: For her to love him, he must face a spirit, an angel…and himself. The spirit of Cameron Douglas has totally screwed-up…again. Now, he has to fix his mess in one night with the help of his best friend and somehow encourage his widow to move on. Holly Douglas is anguished that this is the last Christmas she’ll be visited by her late husband, Cameron. For three years he’s sent her the spirits of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and they‘ve helped her cope with her loss. But now all that ends, and she doesn’t understand why he must push her away. Ethan Stewart has been in love with Holly since Cameron’s death, but she isolated herself from everyone, including him. Then something changed, and he was welcomed back as her friend. But he wants more— to love her openly, and most of all to make her happy again. Though he loved his best friend like a brother and will do anything for Holly, as he’s pulled into the spirit world, he discovers not all is as it seems. If he doesn’t figure it out soon, none of them will have a Merry Christmasever.

Excerpt: He closed his eyes and took a deep breath before opening them. “I miss Cameron. It was as if we were two parts of the same soul. I lived vicariously through him even while I worried constantly about him. It was one of the reasons I was constantly warning him to be careful. I was afraid to lose him.” Ethan looked away and rubbed the back of his neck. “And then I did.” 

She felt as if her heart were breaking all over again, not for her but for Ethan. He was so good to her. He even loved her. And she… “Ethan, I understand.”  

His gaze returned to hers. Though she couldn’t see his face clearly, the limited light reflected off the sheen in his eyes.  

She placed her hand on his cheek and rising on her toes brushed her lips across his in a feather-light kiss. She only meant to give comfort, but a spark of something else hit her heart. She remained there, her lips close to his but not touching, wanting more but afraid to ask.  

Ethan remained absolutely still, his breath mixing with her own. He loved her but would never push her. It wasn’t his nature. She could walk away right now, but to what? 


She stared at his mouth in the dim light. She wanted to live again. She wanted to feel again. Tilting her head, she pressed her lips more firmly against his, moving her hand down his stubbled jaw and behind his neck to pull him closer.  

Ethan’s lips opened, and she slipped her tongue between them. As his arms came around her, it was like waking from a dream. A slow burn flowed through her veins as he took control of the kiss and explored her mouth with his tongue. It was an unhurried exploration and heat built in her belly. 

When he pulled back to lick the underside of her top lip, she took her first deep breath. As she exhaled, tingles spread throughout her body. 

He kissed the corners of her mouth before leaning his forehead against her own. “Ye catch my blood on fire, lass.”
