Excerpt:

“Dammit,” she cursed more under breath as she fought her hair.

It was amusing to watch for two reasons. One, because when Odette was frustrated, she spoke and cursed to herself. And second, I was amazed by how her long curls magically shrunk, rising from the middle of her back to her shoulders and puffing out a bit from the water in the shower.

“Why? Why are you doing this to me now?” she asked her hair as if it were a person, and I just snorted, exposing myself. Her head whipped around, and I clamped my lips shut. “Are you laughing at me? This your fault!”

“Your hair is my fault?”

“Yes, you, Mr. Swoon eyes,” she snapped. “Of course, I would be all Gone With the Wind when you stare at me like that, making forget that I’m not in my home, with my shower caps or combs or even, at least, essential oils and hair moisture to prevent my hair from doing this. I just hopped into the shower, all dazed.”

I could not hold it anymore. I really couldn’t without busting a gut. I laughed so hard my eyes started watering, which Odette just made a face at, before turning around for anything in the sink to help with her current hair apocalypse. Containing myself, I walked up behind her as she gave up. Nothing I had was any use. Instead, she kept trying to brush it out of her face.

She met my eyes in the mirror, glaring for a bit before sighing. “Everyone in the world is going to see me today. I do not want to look—”

“You will look beautiful because you are beautiful,” I said, placing my hands on her shoulders. “Do not stress. You can take as much time as you need.”

Title: Remember Me at Christmas (Spirit of Christmas Novella)
Author: Debra Curwen
Publisher: Vinspire Publishing
Publication Date: November 16th 2020
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Andi has always loved Christmas. The magic, the surprises, and a precious music box she treasures inspired her to open her own Christmas workshop. Andi’s Antiques is now a thriving business, and she sees a long future ahead.
But she hadn’t counted on Mike who wields his charm like a weapon or his determination to buy out her business and replace her quaint, antique shop with its wonder of Christmas with a bar and gaming tables.

Andi isn’t selling no matter how convincing he may be. Sure, there’s something about the guy that’s magnetic, but it’ll take a lot more than a handsome face to make her give up on her dream. Unlocking her heart, though, may be a different story.

Launch - Author Interview

What inspired you to write HER INCONVENIENT CHRISTMAS REUNION?

I was first inspired to write Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion after a once in a lifetime trip to California for a wine tour in Napa Valley. The scenery was so inspiring and breathtakingly lovely, I knew I had to plot my next book in such a setting.

Splashes of Joy - Review

"I love romance stories like this. Where the two main characters have a past, and things are touchy when they are thrown together, usually because of work. And this [is] just what happens here with Zayn and Izzy. . . . This is a sweet story that is wonderful to read during the Christmas season! Oh and that kiss under the lights, that’s a Wow! You just have to read it! . . . I encourage you to check out this sweet Christmas romance. It doesn’t take long to read so this is a wonderful one for those who don’t have the time for a full book!"


“I’m afraid we’re all out of toys,” she told whoever the newcomer was, not bothering to look. “And you probably won’t want a picture.”

“On the contrary,” replied a deep, masculine and all-too-familiar voice. “I would love a photo. You have got to be the most adorable elf I’ve ever seen.”

Izzy stood frozen in place, at a complete loss for words. She had no question who that voice belonged to. She’d know it anywhere despite all the years that had passed since she’d heard it. Zayn Joffman. As if this day hadn’t been bad enough already.

Hallie Reads - Review

"What a fun Christmas romance! . . . I am so in the mood for Christmas romances already, so I enjoyed Nina Singh’s Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion. As Zayn and Izzy get a second chance at love, Singh sets the scene interestingly and beautifully with their shared vineyard. It is all a delight to experience, so I easily recommend this quick read to other readers in need of a holiday romance."

Wishful Endings - Guest Post

Holiday Traditions

Writing a holiday story is always so much fun for me. Though it can be a bit disorienting because often I find myself working on a Christmas book in the middle of July! But it serves as a great reminder of all the wonderful holiday traditions I have to look forward to in a few short months. This year in particular has been one in which I (and I’m sure many others) yearn for the familiar and comforting. . .

Becky on Books - Review

"From the first scene they’re in together (a too-small elf costume plays a part!) to the last, Zayn and Izzy light up the page. They have a lot of work to get through to find their HEA—each has family issues in addition to their own relationship problems to resolve—and it’s by no means a smooth ride from start to finish. But a little Parisian magic and a dash of Christmas spirit (plus, I did mention that there’s only one bed, yes? 😉 ) ease the way to a sweet ending that may have you looking for your own slightly snug holiday outfit…or maybe just a second chance?"


"Such a fun and delightful read and right before Christmas too!
This book is full of love, redemption, forgiveness, friendships and mending past hurts.
I very much enjoyed this novel."


"I enjoyed this sweet romance. . . The characters are well-developed. It's easy to feel their emotions. . . . I highly recommend this book to all those who enjoy a good true romance. This story is a great read."

E-Romance News - Excerpt

Steady, girl. She’d best be sure to remember this was nothing more than a business meeting.

Izzy slowed her gait and forced away the smile that had crept onto her face when she hadn’t been paying attention.

“You’re here,” he announced, flashing her a grin. He hadn’t changed his clothes, unlike her. She’d swapped out the stifling business suit for a comfortable pair of jeans and a thick, velour sweater. But Zayn remained in khakis and the same shirt. Only he’d undone the top two buttons, exposing just enough of the golden skin beneath that she wished she hadn’t noticed.

Harlie's Books - Excerpt

“Now you’ve gone and done it,” he told her, his voice loaded and serious.

What on earth was he referring to? “Done what?”

He pointed to a spot above her head. “You’re standing under mistletoe.”

She looked up to confirm he was indeed right. One of the beams along the ceiling of the tent had a dangling mistletoe plant right above where she stood. She had no idea who might have put it there. If she’d known, she might have taken care not to get caught under the darn thing. But here she was, right in the line of fire.

Christy's Cozy Corners - Review & Guest Post

"Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion will certain get you in the mood for Christmas! Its wonderful characters, beautifully detailed settings, and meaningful themes make this a book I definitely recommend."

BAKED ZITI RECIPE, A MEAL THAT WORKS WITH ANY KIND OF WINE

Thanks to Nina Singh for this yummy baked ziti recipe!!

Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion, my latest release for Harlequin Romance, is set mostly in a California winery. Not surprisingly, the two main characters are wine experts. So they might not agree with me about the following as I know there a lot of people who are sticklers about exactly what kind of food goes with a particular wine. But I happen to have a baked ziti recipe that I personally feel is delicious whether you’re a red or white drinker. Bonus: It’s extra cheesy. . .


". . . I would recommend this book for readers who love enemies-to-friends, second chances, and redemption/healing stories. It is a story about a series of misunderstandings, unresolved issues (until the end), rehashed mistakes, and later, healing as the truth comes outs on why things turned simpler (if they did it right, the first time) in the end. . . . It is an easy read for readers and captivating enough not to put down the book until the end. I enjoyed it a lot."

Kimber Li - Excerpt

“Come with me when I leave for Paris, Izzy.”

Her eyes grew wide with astonishment. “What? Zayn, no.”

“Why not? We could attend the expo together, make it to your ceremony, and maybe get up to speed on the latest trade developments.”

“I don’t…”

“Think about it,” he urged at her pause. “You can hop onto my itinerary. We could do some sightseeing. At the least, we may even have a little fun.”

Jorie Loves A Story - Guest Post

Mistletoe Moments

One of my favorite parts of Holiday movies or books is that iconic romantic mistletoe moment. When the main characters find themselves under the festive plant, they have the perfect excuse to finally indulge in that kiss they’ve been yearning for. My ultimate favorite one in a movie is the scene in the Sandra Bullock blockbuster, While You Were Sleeping. The longing between Lucy and Jack is downright palpable. I strive for that level of angst and longing with my mistletoe scenes, where the characters are trying their hardest to deny their growing feelings for each other. . .

Books & Benches - Guest Post

Q&A with Zayn and Izzy
Character Interview

Izzy:

Q: How did it feel when you realized you’d been bequeathed the vineyard where you’d worked for so many years.

A: It was most definitely a shock. I never expected the previous owner, my boss and mentor, to leave the vineyard and business to me in her will. Of course there was a catch. And that came as an even bigger shock – I’d have to share the winery with none other than my ex. It was all part of Myrna’s bigger plan. She knew I’d never gotten over her nephew when he left for bigger pastures years ago. Her last act was to bring us back together. She always was a wise woman.


I'm a sucker for second chance romances, especially around the holidays. And the bonus to this one is that it also takes place in a winery. It's a very formulaic plot that I have read many times. But the nuances of the journey make reading it quite a lovely adventure. . . it's an enjoyable second chance romance that kept me occupied on a rainy weekend. I don't think I have read any of Nina's books before, but she is an author I will keep an eye out for in the future!"


SHE PRETENDED TO SLEEP in the car on the ride back to the hotel. She was in no mood to talk. The day felt like it had gone on hours too long. Had it really been just this afternoon when they’d attempted to tour the Eiffel Tower?

If Zayn knew she was faking, to his credit, he wasn’t calling her on it. Probably thought she was crushed by her defeat. Little did he know, that was only part of her disappointment this evening.

She fully intended to continue the charade until she heard him say something in French to the driver. “Arrêtez, si’l vous plait.” He was asking him to stop the car.

What Irin Reads - Review

"Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion was such a charming novel, with a cozy, Christmas setting. Holiday-themed novels with a second chance romance are really winning my heart nowadays! . . . I loved this book from the beginning to end! It was a great escape, and a joyful read. I can’t wait to read more books from Nina Singh!"


What do you think it is about Christmas that makes us long to read so many romance novels?

Christmas is such an enchanting time. The lights, the festive atmosphere in the air, all the decorations. Then there’s the prospect of a new beginning and new year right around the corner. What better way to celebrate all that than by reading an entertaining story about people falling in love?


FAVORITE SECOND CHANCE STORIES AND WHY THEY ARE SO COMPELLING.

My latest release for Harlequin Romance is a second chance at love story. Something about reuniting old flames is so compelling to me as a romance author. I’m always so intrigued about the ‘one that got away’. The questions that linger about why the relationship didn’t work out and if there’s a chance things may turn out differently if only the couple had another chance. Maybe the story involves one of the characters swallowing their pride this time around. Something they found much too difficult to do the first time. But now they know how much was lost for the sake of ego. And just how little it was worth it. . .

EmpowerMoms - Review

"I love a good holiday story! . . . I enjoyed reading this sweet, romantic holiday story about love, forgiveness and starting over."

QuirkyBookReads - Review

"Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion tells the story of Izzy and Zayn. It is well written with a charming plot where old flames reunited with a charming holiday twist.

The characters were were easy to fall in love with sizzling chemistry between the main characters. . . . I would recommend Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion to anyone who loves a second chance romance with steamy makeout scenes. The story provides you with the opportunity to set the mood for the Christmas Holiday."

@onemused - Review

"The Christmas setting here was woven beautifully with the story from baking cookies to Santa to more. I also loved the pace, which keeps interest throughout, and I found this to be a book I could enjoy in a single afternoon. . . . This book is such a fantastic second chance romance with a charming holiday setting that deserves to be read cozied up with some cocoa. Izzy and Zayn's story is a great one with all the Christmas feels."


"Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion is a poignant and irresistible romantic read that sparkles with warmth, emotion, intensity and heart. Nina Singh has written a second chance romance about letting go of the past, moving on and the magic of falling in love that will hold readers spellbound from beginning to end. . . . A terrific contemporary romance that makes for perfect holiday reading, Nina Singh’s Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion is a stellar read that is absolutely impossible to put down."


She sat slowly, the note still cradled in her hand. Her eyes fell to the other two objects on the surface of the table. She’d been so focused on the note, she hadn’t noticed them until now. Folded in a neat square was the scarf he’d let her borrow so often to ward off the chill over the past few days. He’d left it for her. On top of the scarf there was a small cardboard box with a satin ribbon tied around the center. Her hand trembling, she reached for it and loosened the bow.


"There’s something about Christmas that makes second chance romances that much more enjoyable, and that’s certainly the case in Her Inconvenient Christmas Reunion. Zayn & Izzy have sizzling chemistry . . . the author does have a limit to the steam and keeps it pretty well within those boundaries (which I appreciated.) From the romantic settings (a Napa Valley vineyard & Paris at Christmas) to the great characters and the sweet message of forgiveness, this is a well-written romance with all the holiday feels!"

Launch - Note from the Author

. . . Welcome to the An Alaskan Family Christmas tour. We’ve got some great blogs this week, with excerpts and reviews and a fun Christmas giveaway. Hope you can make all the stops, and that your holiday season is filled with joy, laughter, and wonderful stories.

—Beth


"This is an often humorous tale of a woman devoted to her friend and who had never enjoyed a real Christmas celebration. She had a very hopeless negative attitude concerning any long term relationship. mistake left her abandoned and at the mercy of and unusual situation. The story is delightful! If this doesn't put one into a "Christmasy" mood, then he/she must be slightly "Scroogey"."


"I thought this sweet romance was a really good read. It was fun getting to know Natalie and Tanner. I was entertained with this story from start to finish. It was such a feel good tale. I loved it. . . . I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy clean and heartwarming romance that are set during the Christmas season."


“Nope.” Natalie tugged her mitten off with her teeth, dug around in her coat pocket until she found her wallet and handed over her bank card. “Hopefully something will break today, because I have to fly out this afternoon.”

“I hope the jerk shows up soon, and you nail him to the wall.”

“I can’t,” Natalie admitted as she dropped a dollar into the tip jar. “I have strict orders to find out where he lives, report back and let my friend be the one to tell him about the baby. She wants to break it to him gently.”

Remembrancy - Review

". . . there’s a lot to recommend An Alaskan Family Christmas. . . . Carpenter does not skimp on the holiday cheer in this story. From Christmas tree hunting to decorating to baking to the gifts on Christmas morn, the holiday resonates on each page. If you’re looking for a story to get you in the holiday spirit, this is it."


"An Alaskan Family Christmas was such a fun and enjoyable Christmas story. I really felt like it was Christmas time as I read about the Rockford family’s various Christmas traditions. I loved that they all got together at the rustic family cabin for their holidays."


"Beth Carpenter brought to life the rugged warmth of an Alaskan Christmas and the time for family that just warmed my heart. . . . I truly loved Tanner and Natalie’s story. They made a great couple, had some funny moments, and a realistic relationship (as much as you can in fiction) that was sweet. I enjoyed how Beth Carpenter made me feel invited into the family of characters right from the beginning it pulled me in and did not let me go 😊."

EmpowerMoms - Review

"I really enjoyed this holiday story! It was easy to read and I loved all the characters in the book especially Natalie and Tanner. It was so funny how Natalie tried to tail Tanner without being too obvious on the train. What an amazing friend Natalie is! . . . Highly recommend this fun, lighthearted holiday story which will definitely make you smile and laugh."


"Beth Carpenter’s voice is shining bright with the latest in her Northern Lights series. The characters are well developed and a joy to get to know, the holiday atmosphere is heartwarmingly real and the happily ever after is super satisfying. I loved every single minute of AN ALASKAN FAMILY CHRISTMAS! . . . I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a heartwarming story revolving around the gorgeous scenery of Alaska."

maiaisreading - Review

"Even with the mix-up, it is so sweet of Tanner and his family to envelope Natalie in their circle and makes her feel welcome. I don’t think I will follow someone without more details but well this is fiction and it’s a fun read. My favorite is their time in the cabin. All that snow and picturesque views sounds wonderful. . . . I like the twists in the story and how things turned out in the end. This is a fun, clean and family oriented story. A little love goes a long way."


"As much as I loved the setting of An Alaskan Family Christmas, it is the characters that will worm their way into your hearts…especially Tanner’s nieces. . . . Of course, I was entertained by the interactions among all of Tanner’s family and Natalie as they spent several days in the cabin together. The author’s description of the time the family spent together at the cabin really warmed my heart. . . . I think that An Alaskan Family Christmas will warm your heart as much as it did mine. This is a book you won’t want to put down, nor will you want it to end! Get a copy ASAP and enjoy!"


"I have read a few of the books in this series, and I love them. My favorite part about this one was Christmas at the remote cabin, with no utilities. Oh, how lovely it sounded from the home-made ornaments to northern lights and sledding with Vitus. Ms. Carpenter has such a fantastic way of transporting you into her worlds, with humor, memorable characters, and the most stunning scenery. My rating for An Alaskan Family Christmas by Beth Carpenter is five stars as the writing is wonderful, and the story is lovely."

Hallie Reads - Review

"With plenty of romance and humor (as readers of Carpenter’s Northern Lights series can expect), An Alaskan Family Christmas proves to be heartwarming and fun. I can easily recommend it to readers looking for a contemporary Christmas read."


"The characters (all of them including the family) are well written. The storyline is a fun one. The author seems to know a lot about Alaska and all it's wilderness. I enjoyed that. I also enjoyed all the Christmas/Holiday stuff in this book. The romance is sweet and follows along with the standards of the Harlequin Heartwarming series."


A voice called out from the shadows in the rear of the room, “Who’s there?”

“It’s just me, Tanner Rockford.”

“Oh, hey, Tanner. Your family already stopped by on their way to the cabin, and your uncle left the utility sled out back for you. Those girls are sure excited about Santy Claus.”

Girls? Natalie’s jaw began to ache under the strain of holding her tongue while pretending she didn’t know anything about Rockford. Married, just as she had suspected. Worse, he had kids. Brooke would be devastated. But at least Natalie knew his real name.


"I've read a couple of Beth Carpenters other books in this series and loved them, so I knew I needed to read this one. And I was not disappointed. There is something about the mystique of Alaska. Throw in a Christmas holiday and you have a recipe for magic and romance. . . . This story really did give me a magical feeling while I was reading it, especially during the Christmas holiday. It's been a while since I truly felt that kind of magic in a holiday romance. It makes me want to reread this and to revisit the rest of the series, especially to catch up on any that I have missed!"

Lisa's Reading - Excerpt

Her phone showed two bars. She got off a quick email confirming her hotel reservation and glanced over at Rockford. He was stashing his laptop in his satchel. Probably planning to stretch his legs. She could use a stroll, too, but following him up and down the train would be a little too obvious.

He pulled his coat down from the overhead shelf and put it on. Hmm. Maybe he was changing cars for some reason. She supposed it didn’t really matter. He’d have to claim his luggage in Anchorage, so he couldn’t get away before she did. He came to her seat and touched her shoulder. “Goodbye, Natalie. I hope you enjoy your new job.” Without waiting for a reply, he walked down the aisle toward the rear of the train.

Wait. Why was he telling her goodbye? They still had several hours before they arrived in Anchorage. What was he up to?


"Just like each of its predecessors, An Alaskan Family Christmas has great characters that camp out in your heart, an engaging plot & sweet romance to keep you turning the pages, and a setting that will take your breath away! Combine a spark-filled romance with the embrace of Christmas, and the laughter & warmth of family, and you’ve got a truly enjoyable read from start to finish!"


"I fell hard for this family and for the warmth Carpenter brought into how she told this story - reading it was such a refreshing balm to my soul . . . If Ms Carpenter is on the fence about writing more installments for this series - I hope she extends it out to a rounded eight, ten or twelve novels all told because she could seriously keep penning these lovelies as I wickedly keep devouring them!"

Pause for Tales - Review

"I really liked this close-knit family. . . by the end, the author made me care about all the characters. Even the recluse and missing Dane. This Christmas story was full of surprises, both good and unexpected."


"Author Beth Carpenter has written another story with Alaska as the beautiful setting and it offers intriguing characters, sweet chemistry, and fun family moments. It's the perfect tale to put you into the Christmas spirit and I recommend An Alaskan Family Christmas to all who enjoy clean romance and heartwarming holiday stories."


"I am ALWAYS up for a good Christmas story, and definitely a cute one. This cover really stood out and I just HAD to read it. . . . It was terribly hard to put down. . . . I really enjoyed this book. And, I am sure fans of the author and genre will undoubtedly enjoy this fun, old-fashioned, sweet romp through the snow Christmas read that plays out much like a beloved Hallmark movie."


"An Alaskan Family Christmas is a charming contemporary romance that will touch the heart and bring a great big smile to everyone’s face. Beth Carpenter effortlessly blends humor, warmth and emotion in a poignant tale about second chances, healing from the past and the magic of falling in love. . . A delightful contemporary holiday romance, Beth Carpenter’s An Alaskan Family Christmas is not to be missed."

Excerpt from Blood Claimed by Heather MacKinnon


“Did the second vampire give me his blood too?” I asked, disregarding the dirty looks he was sending my way.

“No. He didn’t. He left you for dead.”

“And the third?”

“No.”

I nodded slowly and looked out the window, watching the buildings pass by in a blur and the shadows start to lengthen on the pavement.

“But I did.”

I whipped around in his direction, my wide eyes searching his face. “Why would you give me your blood?”

He breathed in and out slowly. Once. Twice. Three times before he spoke. “I was afraid you were going to die. It was after the second attack and I wasn’t sure I had enough time to get you to the hospital.”

He’d saved my life again. In a new and unsuspected way. He’d done it even knowing he’d never be able to tell me. That I’d never get the chance to thank him.

But now I could.

“Thank you,” I said, my voice wavering with a surge of emotion. “What’s that? Three now?”

He glanced at me quickly. “Times that I’ve saved your life? Nah. I wouldn’t count the first two separately. That was the same incident.”

I shook my head. “Nope. In my book they count separately.”

He ducked his head, but not before I caught the small smile on his lips. “Whatever makes you happy.”

That expression triggered something in my brain because I’ve thought a lot about happiness. How much of it I lacked in my early years, how hard I strove for it now, how elusive it could be. I decided a long time ago to collect as many things as I could that made me happy and keep them for as long as possible.

Alexander had effortlessly become one of those things.

I looked around his window-less room before I met his eyes again. “What am I going to do while you sleep?”

He pulled me closer, until my knees touched his. “That’s up to you.”

I tried to breathe evenly, but it was almost impossible while he was rubbing circles on my palms with his fingers. The desire, the need for him was so strong in that instant, it felt like it would swallow me whole.

“I’ve instructed Ashton to meet you here. If you want to leave, he’s prepared to take you anywhere you want. You can stay at another hotel, you can find yourself a new apartment, you can even go back to that dump I left you in the first time. I deposited your money into your account, so that shouldn’t be an issue.” He looked down at where our hands were still joined and fell silent.

I squeezed his fingers and whispered, “What if I don’t want to leave?”

His eyes jumped to mine, their depths so deep, so blue, I could feel myself drowning in them. Like I’d never come up for air. “I’d never send you away,” he said, his voice rumbling through the space between us.

“So, I can stay?”

He nodded, his eyes cautious but so clear I couldn’t look away. “As long as you want.”
