Goblins and ghosts have returned home to rest and overweight turkeys seek the best place to hide.
I love fall: clear, the cool nights, the colorful show of leaves, the smack of leather as the neighborhood boys play touch football in the street. This is the time of year I begin to look forward to the holidays.
In my erotic novel Christmas Eve, Eve Adore was looking forward to the holidays until her ex dumped her on Christmas Eve.
He isn’t the reason Eve backed her car into a snow bank. She did it all by herself, during the first hours of a snow storm that struck Mount Charleston right before Santa climbed into his sled. Wouldn’t you know it? Eve’s cell phone couldn’t find a signal, so she knocked on the door of a lighted cabin to ask for help.
