12 Days of Christmas

On the 7th Day of Christmas … I’m featuring a wonderful anthology of Christmas stories.

AllIWantforChristmasisaSoulMate All I Want For Christmas

This year’s delightful collection of Christmas short stories features a multitude of romantic genres all with one common theme: during the holiday season, nothing’s better than spending it with the one you love.

Twenty talented Soul Mate authors have put together an anthology that’s sure to please any reader who enjoys their romance with a splash of Christmas cheer:

 

 

  • A time-traveling Highlander brings comfort and joy to a young woman grieving her lost family.
  • Best friends, both widowed, suddenly see each other through new eyes during a snowed-in Christmas Eve.
  • A royal prince and a commoner fall in love despite their differences and a handful of untruths, thanks to a wreath that grants wishes.
  • An alien race understands the simple reward of giving, when their human captive does not.
  • Young lovers planning a Christmas wedding find their promise to each other is put to the ultimate test.
  • A ghostly groom refuses to stay away from the woman he loves.
  • For two modern believers, a magical, mystical visit to Bethlehem on the night of the Christ Child’s birth is both a joy and a responsibility.

And many more heartwarming, romantic stories celebrating ‘The Season To Be Jolly.’ Please join us as we tell a few tales, raise a glass of holiday cheer, and deck the halls with romance as well as boughs of holly!

For today’s contest, go to ANY of the contributing author’s web sites and find one fact. It can be the name of their current book release, the name of an upcoming title, where they are from, anything at all.  Post a comment, share with your friends on Facebook and/or Tweet the contest.  Each type of participation earns you an entry.  I’ll post the winner of a $5 Amazon card tomorrow.

Yesterday, we had two winners: Mud will receive a free eBook copy of Inked by an Angel and A.E. Stinson will receive a free eBook copy of The Halo Effect.

Merry Christmas!

Today we’re going to focus on our men and women in the service.

One of my best friends’ responses to the What are you asking Santa for this year question was this, “I’m Asking Santa to use his magic to bring all our boys in the military home to their loved ones who are praying for their safe return.”

Every one of us is effected by our troops being overseas, whether it’s a friend or family member. Last Christmas, my brother-in-law was half way through his fourth tour-of-duty, his third Christmas away from family since he and my sister married just seven years ago.

So today is a tribute to our soldiers. If you have a friend or family member away from home these holidays, list them in your comment. Give us their name, branch of service, and where they are stationed if you feel comfortable sharing.  We would like to thank them for their service and lift them up in our prayers.  I’ll leave this post up for two days so that we can gather as many names as possible.

Three Ways To Enter:

1.  Leave a comment lifting up those in the service – it can be a general statement or specific to those in your life.

2.  Facebook and Tweet to your friends about this posting.

3.  Bring a friend to the party. Anyone leaving a comment that tells me you sent them, they’ll get an entry and you’ll get a bonus entry.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway – Day 4

Dear Santa,

I’ve met the most beautiful woman. She has long auburn hair and gorgeous green eyes. And those curves …

As the owner of La Bella Vita, she spent an hour taking me on a tour of her elegant day spa and treated me to a sample temple massage. She has the most amazing fingers. I was so mesmerized that I almost forgot about the present I was there to purchase.

Grandfather tells me that our mothers were friends growing up. If not for the accident, I would have met her a long time ago. Oh, how my life might have been different, if I had. I’ve spent years dating beautiful women who only cared about being seen with me. Wanting the things I could buy them. Assuming I had my grandfather’s money.

But the laugh is on them. Grandfather paid for my college education, giving me a foundation in life. But Brandon and I have sacrificed and built our business without a dime of help from either one of our families.

This woman is different. I can feel it all the way to my soul.

Next Friday’s Christmas party is the first event Grandfather has held at the family estate in over twenty years. He’s going to make a phone call to ensure she joins her parents. I can’t get her out of my head. She makes me think about things … want things … that I’ve barely allowed myself to ever dream of.

I know now what I want in life. A wife and a house full of children. The white picket fence and a dog named Buddy. I want it all.

So, Santa, I’ve been a really good boy this year and I promise I will be for the rest of my life, if you’ll grant this one request.

Give me Beth Sergeant for Christmas.

I’m a believer,

Nick Chester
