Merry Menage Hop ~ Karen Erickson ~ Day 3

Today is Day three in the Merry Menage Giveaway Hop and we have Karen Erickson with us today! 

When I started looking for books to feature on the Merry Menage Hop I saw Karen had a few and was so excited when she said she wanted to be apart of this. Holiday themed books for me have always been fun and Karen knows just how much havoc, heart, and heat to add to a book to make it a winner for me.

Thanks ladies for having me as a guest during the Merry Menage Giveaway Hop!

I have such a serious addiction to holiday romances, it’s pitiful. Not only do I love reading them, I enjoy writing them too. And to prove it, I created a page this season featuring all of my holiday-themed novellas and books. Including my recent release, JANE’S GIFT.

A fire captain afraid of commitment. A widow afraid of fire. Can the holidays bring them together?

A devastating house fire cost Jane Clark nearly everything: her husband, her confidence, and her looks, with the physical scars marbling her body. Now, two years later, she's living and healing back in her childhood hometown of Lone Pine Lake. The upcoming holidays are the perfect opportunity to bring some Christmas cheer into her young children's lives, starting with a visit to the firehouse, where her brother's best friend has offered to help quell their residual fears.

Lone Pine's resident playboy, fire captain Christian Nelson is happy with his single-guy lifestyle. He's an everyday local hero, so he's never wanting for attention around the holidays. But when Jane Clark shows up, Chris is immediately drawn to the beautiful widow--even though kids and commitment have never been his style.

Despite her brother's warnings about his friend's playboy status and dangerous occupation, Jane can't help but fall for the gorgeous fire captain. The holidays are a time of new beginnings, but can two scarred people find the strength to let go of their pasts to live in the present, when a lifetime together might be the sweetest gift of all?

You can find JANE’S GIFT at Amazon | B&N | Kobo

In celebration of all this holiday happiness going around, I’m going to give away a copy of my sexy Christmas-themed novella FAIRIES & WISHES (I mean come on, a virgin fairy? You know you’ll love it!) to one lucky commenter. Just answer this question in the comments:

Holiday books – love ‘em or hate ‘em?
FairiesWishes_MEDLily the holiday fairy is given a new assignment this Christmas season—teach a lonely doctor how to love again. But this presents a major challenge. Lily gently coerces people how to embrace the Christmas spirit every year. She doesn’t have a clue what love really is.
The holidays are always depressing for Tim Killian after losing his beloved parents in a terrible car crash. With no family to celebrate with, he throws himself into his medical practice to forget the pain, at least for a little while.
When he literally runs into a gorgeous redhead one evening and knocks her to the ground, he’s struck dumb by her beauty. And when the very same sexy woman comes into his office the next day seeking medical attention, he’s more than interested in his new—but odd—patient.
Soon Tim finds himself involved with the mysterious Lily, but so many things about her don’t add up. Is she what she seems? And does he really want to fall in love with a woman he knows absolutely nothing about?
Oh yes, he does…
This book was previously published and has been extensively revised.

You can find Fairies and Wishes at | Kindle | Nook | All Romance | Smashwords

Happy holidays everyone!

  1. If the story is good, I love em. If the story is not good, then I don't like em


  2. It depends on the story. I usually like them if it's written by an author I usually read.


  3. if its by an author i usually read i usually do read it, but if its by someone i havent read before, i'll give it a go if i like the an excerpt or a teaser, but i do love to see the holiday covers. julie.beasley@btinternet.com

  4. i usually do for an author, i read, but id have to like a teaser, or except of 1 i didnt know to read the book. i love to see the holiday covers. julie.beasley@btinternet.com

  5. Hi Karen!!! I love, love, love holiday books and I'm so glad you're got quite a few of them :) The poor paperbacks I have can attest to my love of holiday romances. Good thing I bought extra copies for Kindle.

    Favorite holiday drink: hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows. Maybe a little apple cider with a splash of something or other :)

  6. I actually haven't read any holiday books... or at least none that I can remember:) I love the holidays, so I am pretty sure that if I were to read any holiday books then I will love those too!


  7. Fav holiday drink would be Apple cider with Malibu black. Yummmmmy!

  8. I love holiday books. I actually read them twice a year. I read some in July, because it's hotter than heck here in South Texas & thinking of Christmas makes me think of cooler temps! Then, around mid-November, I start reading them to get me in the "holiday mood".

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. Oh my gosh... Holiday books I LOVE them!!!!

    As far as holiday drinks... I don't think I really have one. Martini & Rossi Asti is usually in my refrigerator.

  11. I have to admit, I don't usually get into holiday books but this season I am all about them and have read quite a few good ones so far, including Jane's Gift!
