RG the X-mas Elf: I find myself sniffling, ’bout ready to cry. I’m glad Ten is here but my time sure does fly. It seems like just yesterday it was Day One, we had only just started, all ready for fun.
Remember that video? That was cool too.Wait, what am I doing? Why should I be blue? Our authors today make me smile, make me wink. Make me think thoughts an innocent Elf shouldn’t think *G*
So enjoy them all day, I know I will, and then? We will bid them adieu, always loving Day Ten.
~Favorite holiday movie: My favorite holiday movie is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. We
watch it every time it’s on! Just the best entertainment and it’s got
everything in there to set the mood and have fun with the holiday
~Favorite holiday tradition: Christmas is when we splash out on all the favorite drinks, the
sparklers, rum punch, and the warming liquors. My favorite invention
is something we call a Firecracker, Babycham with a shot of good
brandy in it. One of those warms you over mighty quick. :)
Willingly bound and seduced by two masters…
Two men have walked in to Monica Evans’ life, and it isn’t ever going to be the same. Owen Clifford and his lover, Alec Stroud, are investigating fraud at Monica’s place of work, a luxurious London hotel. From the moment they meet, the chemistry between the three of
them is off the scale.
But Monica has a secret, and it isn’t anything to do with fraud. Like her sisters, Monica is a psychic. In Monica’s case the gift is psychometry—when she touches objects or people she can experience their sexual history. Can she ever truly share that with a lover, let alone two bisexual lovers? Something about Owen and Alec captures her though, literally. Willingly bound and seduced by two masters, Monica opens up to them, physically, emotionally, and psychically.
Owen and Alec have been looking for their third and they believe Monica might be the one to complete their lives. But Monica’s secret isn’t the only barrier these two have to break down in order to win their woman. Fraud, duplicity, and mysterious threats add to their
complications. For Owen and Alec, the challenges are stacking up and the race is on.

~Favorite holiday food: Coconut Cream pie. My own family tradition.
~Favorite Holiday Tradition: My husband and I have lived abroad a good chunk of our married life and we’ve always lived away from family. We developed a tradition early on of having a Christmas meal that involved all of OUR favourites rather that what you’re SUPPOSED to have. Chicken, not turkey, with Raymond’s home made cornbread dressing, coconut cream pie for me and chocolate cream for him, and whatever other goodies we feel inclined toward in addition. We always have our favourite things and we always cook them together. Much of our dating took place around meal prep in the kitchen, so being in the kitchen cooking together always feels a bit like a date, and it feels especially festive at Christmas.

~Gift on my holiday wish list: The usual things I have on my list are books and DVDs, but what I’d really, really like is the winning lottery ticket. I’d be heading Stateside in 2013 for sure if I had millions in the bank! And building a house with the most awesome library ever! :D
~Weirdest holiday memory ever: That would be last year. I went on holiday to Fuerteventura with my dad, and given we were fed up of the food in our all-inclusive hotel, we found a British bar that was doing traditional Christmas dinners. We booked our seats and then a couple of days later, sat in the beautiful sunshine, overlooking the beach and the sea, eating turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, etc. It was pretty bizarre – but delicious!

~Favorite holiday song: What Christmas Means to Me by Hanson. Yes, Hanson. Go ahead and judge me.
~Most ridiculous Christmas: Happened about ten years ago. I was home in New Hampshire with my parents. I woke up on Christmas morning and when I came downstairs, my dad said we could open presents once Gone with the Wind was over. I’d never seen it before so I asked him how much longer that would be. He lied and told me an hour tops. And that was the Christmas we didn’t open presents until 1:30 in the afternoon.
Every sorority has its secrets…
And college freshman Ginger Carmichael couldn’t care less. She has more important things on her mind, like maintaining her perfect GPA. No matter how much she can’t stand the idea of the cliques and the matching colors, there’s something about the girls of Alpha Beta Omega—their beauty, confidence, and unapologetic sexuality—that draws Ginger in. But once initiation begins, Ginger finds that her pledge is more than a bond of sisterhood, it’s a lifelong pact to serve six bloodthirsty demons with a lot more than nutritional needs.
Despite her fears, Ginger falls hard for the immortal queen of this nest, and as the semester draws to a close, she sees that protecting her family from the secret of her forbidden love is much harder than studying for finals.
Prize: I’ll give away ebooks of Better off Red and the sequel Blacker Than Blue which will be out in January.
~Favorite holiday food or drink: I know this is going to sound weird, but one of my all-time favorite Holiday foods is “Cheese & Crackers” So plain and simple, yet it’s something that I associate with holidays and parties and good times. I love to sit, laugh and chat with friends and family around a table full of cheese, meat and cracker snack plates.
