Snippet Sunday: Christmas in July - 99 cent spicy romance - Feast of Candles #snippetsunday #christmasinjuly

Hi all, I'm participating in the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday. This month, I'll be taking snippets from my spicy contemporary romance, Feast of Candles. You can find the Weekend Warriors Snippet Sunday list at:

Drake sharpened his gaze. He didn't know a soul and he didn't care. He'd traveled over 9,000 miles to meet Lily Marquand and nothing would stop him from branding her as his.

Drake found her, standing next to a window with a darkened view of the vines. She held a wine glass by the stem, her attention focused on the man in front of her. He wore a business suit and was an inch or two shorter than her.

Lily's picture did her no justice. Tall, her figure was curving and regal. 

Travel to California wine country and enjoy this snippet from my 99 cent Christmas romance, "Feast of Candles," featuring Jimmy Thomas on the cover 

Drake de Brettville is going to take the biggest risk of his life – because of a bottle of wine. When Drake's brother returns to their home in Denmark with a bottle of wine from the Marquand Winery, Drake finds himself compelled to discover who the wine maker is. Intrigued to learn that the owner is a young woman named Lily Marquand, Drake travels to Napa Valley, California, to meet her. 

When Drake finds Lily, the sparks fly. Lily is that rare woman who stimulates him like no other, but to win her love, Drake has to shatter the battlements that guard her heart and prove to her Christmas wishes do come true.

  1. Is this an open house? If not, he's going to have an interesting time explaining how he came to crash her party.

  2. This sounds like Drake is going to have a little bit of competition but I'm sure he can overcome that.

  3. She doesn't sound like she's going to be an easy woman to brand as his. Love the name Drake, too.
