Congratulations to "Karen C." the winner of Linda's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!
I love romance and I love suspense – and I love Christmas! But I can’t always put them together.
Take Christmas movies as an example. I love holiday themed movies; from It’s a Wonderful Life all the way to Home Alone. One of my all-time favorite movies ever is Love Actually. Lots of things going on in that movie and several romances to follow at the holidays. But not much suspense. In fact, I was going through the listing of new holiday themed romantic movies coming out this year and there are not many of them with added suspense. So I thought I would turn to books (not such a hardship.) But I can’t find many romantic suspense holiday themed books out this year either. Darn.
As it happens I have a new holiday novella out now from Harlequin Romantic
Suspense called A CHANCE REUNION. Titled Christmas Confidential, it’s in a two-author anthology with another story by author Marilyn Pappano. So there is at least one holiday book to read.
In A CHANCE REUNION, Gage Chance (the third brother in my Chance, Texas series) wants to forget Christmas for good. It used to be his favorite holiday, but that was before he lost his wife on one snowy Christmas Eve five years ago. This year he intends to skip Christmas by tracking down the family’s baby sister, kidnapped twenty years before. The search takes him to a quaint ski resort town in the southern California mountains. Bah humbug on quaint Christmas towns. That’s how Gage feels about the whole thing…until…he spots a woman who looks remarkably like his dead wife. And it turns out this Christmas will change everything.
If you like a little suspense with your Christmas romance, I know you will enjoy both stories in this anthology!
As for me, I guess I will have to skip the suspense in my holiday movies and books this year and just stick to the romance. So let’s talk holiday themed movies and books. Do you have any favorites? Any you watch or reread every year? Tell us! And one lucky commenter will wind an autographed copy of Christmas Confidential and a $10 Amazon gift card!
