Cops and Christmas

Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it’s time to look forward to the Christmas holidays. And didn’t they get here quickly? It seems like I just got all my decorations put away from last year. Don’t know about you, but I always seem to find a Santa or Christmas angel tucked away and forgotten on a book shelf—in July.  Do you usually forget one or two decorations?

So, now is the time to get into the holiday spirit, and what better way than by reading my book The Cop Who Stole Christmas? Don’t worry, Detective Mark Donaldson isn’t like the Grinch, he’s a sexy, Texas detective doing his job. He just doesn’t like it when his job lands in his neighborhood in the form of a dead body at his pretty neighbor, Savanna Edwards’ house. Reluctantly thrown together to solve this crime, Mark and Savanna grow on each other—like the holiday spirit grows in us the closer we get to Christmas. Will they be sharing their Christmas turkey—and maybe a bed—by New Years Eve? Pick up a copy of The Cop Who Stole Christmas to find out, and catch a little Christmas spirit along the way!

The Cop Who Stole ChristmasIt’ll take a tall, hot Texan and a little holiday spirit to mend a broken heart and catch a Christmas killer . . .

Savanna Edwards is feeling downright Scrooge-like. Who can blame her? A truly unjolly Santa—suit, beard and all—just repossessed her car because of her ex’s shady business dealings. She’d like to murder the no-good lying cheat, but somebody already did that for her—and left him right in the middle of her kitchen, wrapped up with a bow.

Detective Mark Donaldson has a rule against getting involved with his neighbors. He can look—and he’s studied every sweet curve of Savanna from across the street—but he can’t touch. So when she lands on his doorstep in need of help, he finds himself torn between being naughty or nice, and fights every urge to unwrap her like a shiny new Christmas present. 

Trouble is, even Mark can’t resist a little holiday magic . . . and there’s definitely something magical happening between him and the girl next door.

“Readers will be instantly drawn into this suspenseful story that is balanced by a fun, sexy romance. Marc and Savanna are perfectly matched. . . .” —Romantic Times

  1. I used to love the way the moonlight would shine off of the snow at christmastime, but now that I live in Texas and snow is pretty much a thing of the past, my second favorite thing is Christmas music. One of my favorite Christmas albums is Michael Buble.

    • I’m one of THOSE people who have been playing Christmas music since November 1st. It lifts my spirits and reminds me of all that I have been blessed with.

      On a side note, I too love the moonlight on the snow. I used to live in Lander, Wyoming, a small town near the base of the Wind River Mountains. On a clear night, the mountains sparkle as though they were made of diamonds. I had never seen anything more beautiful. That same year I got to witness Northern Lights too. But Texas has the same gorgeous night sky, the most incredible sunsets, and lush woods that make me want to take long walks.

  2. What I love most is family who lives on the other side of the country come and visit. Loved ones you rarely ever see. It’s all the Christmas present I ever need. 🙂

  3. I love all the decorations at this time of year! I love going for a drive and see all the pretty houses. I just wish we had more around here where I live.

    I have your book already so please don’t enter me in the contest. It was a fantastic story! Highly recommend!

  4. Seeing the grandchildren getting excited about Santa coming. Watching their faces light up when putting the decorations out.

  5. I love the most is seeing family that you normally don’t get to see. It is the time that family that family that live out of the area from you come together to enjoy the holiday and just to reconnect with each other. Also seeing the kids and grand kids happy faces Christmas morning when they open their gives.

  6. Let’s see, what do I love most about Christmas? The feel. To me, most of the time, it feels like people are smiling just a little more, laughing a little more and giving a little more. They stretch a little further with their kindness…so, that’s my favorite thing. After that, it’s the lit trees, Christmas lights everywhere and anywhere, and last, it’s the fragrances. I love the scent of Christmas, whether it’s the smell of pine, or lit candles in the holiday scents. Those are my favorite things about Christmas 🙂
