Twelve Days to Christmas by L.A. Starkey


Jessie Young hates the holidays.It’s simple, you see.

and the joy seems like fun.

Only twelve days until Christmas,

She can’t wait till it’s done!

Winter weddings are meant to be magical but when her brother’s fiancée turns into Bridezilla, seventeen-year-old Ellie Henderson can’t wait to escape from dress fittings, wedding plans and rehearsal dinners.

Magic is real and dreams do come true. Be careful what you Witch for. Chris Heron is a witch who loathes the holiday season. What’s even worse is getting expelled from private coven school on Halloween and having to attend public magic school, where Santa’s son is visiting and has all the girls in a frenzy. Fairies, mermaids, elves, even the trolls are swooning over Kris Kringle Jr. All except for one girl, and she’s a North Pole mystery that has Chris intrigued. Will he be able to put his prejudices aside in time to see the true magic all around him?

After a mishap threatens to send their ride home without them, the youngest of the magi exhibits a hidden talent that leaves an impression on his elders and on Shirlyn’s heart.

Winter Trials by K.S. Marsden


With Midwinter just around the corner, Mark‘s Nanna decides that it is time he learnt more about his family heritage. Learning witchcraft shouldn‘t be too difficult, right?  Balancing school, magic, and the distractions of the gorgeous new guy, should make this a very interesting winter.

The Edge by Fleur Camacho


Laura only wants one thing for Christmas, and it’s the deepest darkest secret of her heart. When a mysterious man emerges from a fire in her backyard, can he be the key to unlocking the secret she guards so close?

Endless Possibilities

Read-A-ThonI joined Good Tales for their first semi-annual Good Tales Read-a-thon June 5th on Facebook. The theme for this one was “Endless Possibilities!” It was a lot of fun. Some great authors stopped by each day to shower us with books to slap on our TBR lists and there were many random giveaways for answering random questions. Some of the questions were specific to the book you’re currently reading, while others were get-to-know-you questions.

The theme Endless Possibilities was well-named. I think I was one of a handful of men in a sea of beautiful romance writers (mostly women.) Les Lynam and I were definitely outnumbered and almost jumped ship when they wanted us to take off our shirts! But I made many new friends and gave away two copies of The Wastelanders and even more copies of Black Silence.

I also have a TBR (To Be Read) list of my own if you’d like to check it out here and I plan on adding to it as I read and discover new books.


Organized by Good Tales Book Tours
