Can I wish everyone a really good Christmas and an excellent new year. May you get whatever you want and may it be as wonderful as when you simply wanted it.
There’s fun – and prizes – every day at my old pal RJ Scott’s Advent calendar. I was there yesterday – behind door 16 – and am offering a bag of British goodies to one winner drawn from among the comments. Said goodies, to be sent anywhere in the known universe. I’ve put together a really good selection of things, from Blenheim, Thornbury Castle, Hill House, etc.
Talking of RJ, who’s a very old pal of mine, she has a brand new seasonal romance out right now. The Wishing Tree will be a right good ‘un, believe me and I’m so pleased to be giving a shout out about it.
It takes an impossible Christmas wish for Bailey to find forever love with his brother’s best friend. Turning twenty-five and still a virgin, Bailey has barely dated, let alone acted on the private fantasies featuring his brother’s best friend, newly retired hockey star, Kai. All he wants is for Kai to love him, but after a summer when Kai’s anger drove them apart, love doesn’t seem possible at all.
When Kai goes home to Wishing Tree, he knows he owes everyone an apology, not least of all to the man he loves. He’s convinced he can be the man Bailey deserves, and he needs to show Bailey how much he’s changed.
The only problem? Bailey has secrets he’s scared will drive Kai away, and Kai is running out of time to convince Bailey that falling in love starts with a wish, and can end up in forever.
The Wishing Tree is a standalone small-town Christmas MM romance with perfect snow, twinkling lights, a first real kiss, a shy virgin with a silken kink, a retired hockey player, and all the Christmas feels.
And as another treat, there’s this year’s free story – which I’m only letting newsletter readers know about for the moment. It’ll be linked at my blog next week.
