Ho Ho Ho Bring on the #MistletoeHop! #bloghop #excerpts

Welcome to my stop on the Mistletoe Hop. This is the first one I’ve participated in so please bear with me. At the end of the post you’ll find the linky list of all the fabulous authors participating. Make sure you check them all out and enter yourself in the contests to win the prizes at each stop. I’m giving away FIVE copies of Brigid’s Blessing (The Bigfoot Chronicles) in any ebook format the winners choose. One lucky winner will also get a $10 Amazon Gift Card. 

This time of year is one of my favorites. It’s the holiday season and for me and my character Bryanna, it’s the time of the Winter Solstice or Yule. All the basic traditional symbols of the tree, Yule log, and mistletoe have their roots in the ancient religions…before Christianity. What I love about modern times is we all get to share these traditions and make them our own. 

For me, Yule is a time centered around the  special magic of colors, snow and tradition. It’s a time of rebirth and renewal—a time of new beginnings. This is the time when many folks make resolutions for the upcoming new year and get ready for brighter things to come.

This is what Bryanna wishes for in Brigid’s Blessing. She wants nothing more than to have a child of her own. If it means she has to offer herself up to Bigfoot to do it, she will.  

Boy does she ever! She wasn’t prepared for the raw, animalistic need that hit her the moment Ashar made his presence known to her. The fear that she should’ve felt wasn’t there. Instead she wanted nothing more than to give herself over completely to his lust—over and over again. Here’s an EXCERPT.

What do you think? Want to read more? Well if you enter the Rafflecopter below, you’ll get entries ton win one of FIVE copies and one of you will get the Amazon gift card as well.
