HEARTFELT, CHRISTMAS NOVELLA...

SECRET SANTA


Holly Gordon’s estrangement from her family makes loneliness of the Christmas season hit close to home. Volunteering for the annual Ashton Falls Secret Santa Program is more than a comfort, it’s a blessing. Just knowing she’s able to help another hurting soul experience the joy of a heartfelt Christmas makes her own reality a tiny bit sweeter, that is, until Marcus Jenner ends up on her list.


Marcus Jenner is more than a bronze, muscled looker. This Chickasaw loner isn’t happy being placed on the town’s Secret Santa list. Suffering from the blow of a devastating loss, he has chosen to withdraw from living almost completely. For the life of him, he can’t figure why this pretty little blonde keeps bumping into him, calling him by name, and insisting on giving him presents. Unfortunately for Marcus, every time she does, a billowing cloud of havoc seems to ensue. Why can’t this uninvited vixen leave him alone?


They say time and fate have all of the answers. Holly, in all of her innocence, is drawn to Marcus like a moth to the flame. But Marcus has no intentions of submitting to the threat of his newfound feelings. A painful exchange pushes their lives into a pendulum chaos. His demand for privacy is granted by Holly’s hidden illness. Her sudden absence hits him hard, especially when the arrival of a stranger delivers the rest of his gifts. Right away, he knows something’s horribly wrong.


Love and selfless giving can rouse a wounded, sleeping heart. But sometimes a secret santa gets a few unexpected gifts of her own.

LOVE PARANORMAL ROMANCE?


SPARTAN HEART SAGA:


WHERE TIME-TRAVEL
PARANORMAL ROMANCE

MEETS HISTORY AND DESTINY




SPARTAN HEART:
LOSING IT ALL PLACES YOU
IN A POSITION TO GAIN EVERYTHING.
TIME MEANS NOTHING WHEN THE ONE
DESTINED TO LOVE YOUR HEART
HAS WAITED CENTURIES!

Sent away to college in America, Evangeline swore she would never return to England. Anger loses its value when tragedy forces her home to assume ownership of the family's beloved Greco-Roman museum.

Placing a foolish, drunken kiss on a Greek statue in the museum's basement, Evangeline unknowingly frees a Spartan prince from an evil oracle's curse. Suddenly, her lonely life is invaded by the rakish man with knowing emerald green eyes who never eats or sleeps, and seems to know her every thought and feeling.

Falling in love is dangerous, especially when it's with a man who has already been claimed by the bitter oracle Demona. From the moment of her kiss, Evangeline is swept into Dorien's world of mystery, danger, and passion. The Oracle's fury only mounts as they unravel Demona's darkest secrets, but not before Demona finds out about their unborn half-breed immortal twins.

Demona uses her knowledge of the future to manipulate, but sometimes love has a will, and a heart...of its own.

About the Author:

Kristine Cheney is an award-winning, multi-published author. Her credits include the heart-warming Christmas novella, Secret Santa, and the Spartan Heart Saga, of which she has released Spartan Heart, Part One, and Spartan Heart, Part Two.  Spartan Surrender is the next book in the series, expected by March 2012, and Spartan Proposal is planned by Fall 2012, with more books scheduled to follow. She is also currently writing Guilty of Innocence, a single-title release expected in 2012.
An Arizona native, Kristine lives in Surprise and has been married 22 years to her high school sweetheart Brett. She is the mother of Taryn, Brett, and Zackary, and is a young Grammy to Parker, Ivy, and baby Evely'nn. A huge labrador lover, she is also mom to yellow lab Magnus and to the very naughty (and huge) white Labra-doodle puppy Brody.

Hobbies include writing passionate love stories that involve chivalrous characters, dashing adventure, forked humor, and the ever-true good vs. evil dilemma. Her favorite place to relax is anywhere within close proximity to a beach or wooded lake. A huge history buff, she plans to one day make a trek across the US to get her fill of American wonder (with hubby, labs, and lap top in tow). She loves a good hot cup of coffee with Creme Brulee liquid creamer and sugar. A maestro with a bag of frosting, Wilton cake decorating lessons only fueled her artistic fire. She is pretty darn awesome at crankin' out a deluxe wedding, baby shower, or themed birthday cake that will make your toes curl.
