<h3>About Love and Mistletoe:</h3>
<p><i>One blizzard. Two opposites. And some time under the mistletoe.</i></p>
<p>Josh Carson has a secret. As a firefighter he’s comfortable being sent in to save forests and wildlife, but in his spare time he creates delicate hair ribbons that are anything but masculine. When he finds Simone snowed in on Nymph Island–and she’d rather freeze than be saved by Mr. Tough Guy–he realizes that the only way to win her over and get her to safety is to take a risk and reveal his true self.</p>
<p>Simone Pascal loves being independent and self-reliant–she’s never needed a man to save her, and yet she keeps falling into Josh’s arms at every turn, wanting him to rescue her. The worst part? She likes it. A lot. Which is a big problem since she’s rearranged her entire life to take on a new project—a baby via a sperm donor. Her life plans most definitely do not include anything as unpredictable as falling in love with Mr. Macho Firefighter, but that seems to be exactly what she’s doing.</p>
<p>Will the two come to terms with their true selves in time to snag their happily ever after? Or will they be spending Christmas cold and alone?</p>

Book Quote Wednesday: Question from Love and Mistletoe

  Posted by Jean Oram , 28 November 2018 · 21 views

<h3>I must ask you a question…</h3>
<p>Today’s #BookQW (Book Quote Wednesday) word is question!</p>
<p>Here’s a little snippet from Love and Mistletoe. Simone is snowed in and Josh has a snowmobile. There’s a blizzard raging outside and she needs to get home. They’ve agreed to wait out the storm, but at the moment Simone is trying to guarantee a ride home in the morning. The problem is, Josh doesn’t want to be stuck with her any longer than he needs to be. Why? Because they’re opposites that are clashing like Titans!</p>

Gratitude: A Note From Jean

  Posted by Jean Oram , 23 November 2018 · 27 views

<p>As the final book is released in my third series it’s a natural time to pause and count my blessings.</p>
<p>And there are so many.</p>
<p>I’ve kept a gratitude journal for some time and I try to remember to be thankful for what I have each day whether it is something big or small. I also try to be generous with others whether it’s practicing patience or something fun such as a giveaway for my readers.</p>
<p>Recently though, I’ve been engaging in tithing which is outside my comfort zone as I tend to worry about money having grown up well-aware that things were constantly tight financially. (Tithing is the act of donating 10% of ones income–most commonly to a church. In my case, I have been donating a segment of my monthly book royalties to various charities and I choose a different one each month.)</p>
<p>What’s interesting is that once I decided to do this I immediately began seeing places to donate to. At the grocery store there was a charity with a stand near the store entrance. In the coffee shop drive thru there was a charity taking donations. A charity sent a flyer in the mail. My son was doing a run for a charity with his school. Opportunities were suddenly everywhere!</p>
<p>How impossible to choose!</p>
<p>Donating isn’t entirely new to me though as each month, for the past decade, we have been supporting a family overseas through Plan International–something my parents did for many many years, even when times were very tight. I also donate my time to the fundraising society at my daughter’s school, donated a lot of our baby items to single teenage moms, etc. But tithing more than a few dollars here and there… that’s still a bit out of range when it comes to my comfort zone!</p>
<p>But since September I’ve been stepping it up and telling my fear to take a hike! So far I’ve donated to the Terry Fox fund (Cancer charity here in Canada), The Heart and Stroke Foundation, as well as toward hurricane relief in the Carolinas where the Indigo Bay series is set. (I also received an email for a literacy charity last month hoping I’d send a signed book for their auction. I did. I also created a basket of signed books by various authors for a local fundraiser.)</p>
<p>Suddenly this isn’t quite so scary and it’s nice to know that I am able to help out in larger, more frequent ways, too.</p>
<p>I’ll have to choose a charity soon for December and I’m looking forward to it!</p>
<p>How about you? Are you one who likes to count their blessings? Do you have a favourite charity you like to donate to? Tell me about it in the comment section.</p>

  Posted by Jean Oram , 21 November 2018 · 35 views

<h3>It’s a great day to be thankful for what we have.</h3>
<p>Blue sky, a warm home, a loving family, lighthearted romantic comedies to watch and great books to read.</p>
<p><strong>What are you thankful for today?</strong></p>

This week, no surprise, the word is “Thanks” in celebration of American Thanksgiving.</p>
<p>The most recent release from the Veils and Vows series, Mail Order Soulmate, has a Thanksgiving scene. Catherine is a single mom who is on the run and life has sent her to Zach, a retired spy. She has a secret past as does he. Instead of this becoming something that rips them apart, it rides between them–unspoken and innately understood–creating a strong, intimate bond.</p>
<p>This snippet is from Catherine and Zach cooking a Thanksgiving meal for their friends. Catherine has a lot to be thankful for and she fears that by expressing it she will illustrate all that she has run from in her past. It’s a tender scene, one that brings them together. And as a blog reader I’m sharing not just this snippet with you, but a longer sneak peek below as my thanks to you for reading.</p>
<p>My wish for you is that you have plenty to be thankful for today and tomorrow.</p>
<hr />
<h4>Sneak peek from Mail Order Soulmate’s Thanksgiving scene:</h4>
<p>“So? What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?” Zach asked. He was watching her as they took a sip of their drinks, and seemed to have noticed the shift in her mood and how she’d dropped her paranoia. He seemed relieved, as though her being on edge had put him on edge as well.</p>
<p>“Do people really do that? Make a public gratitude list?” She took a sip of the sweet wine.</p>
<p>“Well, it depends how emotionally needy they are.”</p>
<p>Catherine snorted wine out her nose.</p>
<p>“You are so very proper and British, as well as ladylike,” Zach said with an amused smile, handing her a cloth to wipe her face.</p>
<p>“This was actually the hardest thing to master in finishing school,” she said seriously.</p>
<p>“I’ll bet.”</p>
<p>She paused, her left arm across her waist as she held her wineglass at chest level with her right. “In an attempt to err on the side of not being emotionally needy, how many things am I safe to list?”</p>
<p>There were so many, how could she choose?</p>
<p>“I was just kidding. Us army guys have trouble with the emotional stuff sometimes. List as much as you’d like.”</p>
<p>“Gratitude shouldn’t be difficult, Zach.”</p>
<p>“True. Just don’t make me cry, okay?”</p>
<p>She rolled her eyes, and he reached out and gave her earlobe an affectionate tug, like he was a middle school boy with a crush. She liked it.</p>
<p>“Oh, I will. You’ll be crying like a big ol’ baby by the time I’m done.”</p>
<p>“Maybe I should go first, so you have an example to follow. Try something simple, like how you’re grateful for Xavier’s returned health.”</p>
<p>“Nope. Ladies first. And no suggestions, although that is a good one.” She paused, thinking. She had so many things to be hugely grateful for. Soul-baring things. And that’s what this exercise could easily become, because she feared that once she started listing all she was thankful for, everything wonderful in her new life would come spilling out, possibly revealing what she’d left behind.</p>
<p>Plus it might end up being like telling a man on the first date that you loved him, wanted to get married and have his babies. Immediately.</p>
<p>“I can go first,” Zach said, after she’d paused for a long moment.</p>
<p>“No, I’ll go. I was just thinking what’s number one on the list.”</p>
<p>She stepped closer to him and placed a hand on his waist, an intimate move she’d seen so many couples do without thought. “I am thankful for you.”</p>
<p>There. She hadn’t kept going. She’d made it simple. Chosen the one thing that all her other gratitudes stemmed from: Zach.</p>
<p>His eyes were warm as he watched her. He said nothing, letting them have this—a moment. A couple’s moment.</p>
<p>“I’m thankful you answered my message,” she added.</p>
<p>Oh, no. Here she went. He should have said something. She could feel the pressure building inside her to keep sharing, like a train without brakes on a downhill track. To express the avalanche of emotions and gratitude within her.</p>
<p>“I’m thankful that you welcomed me and my son into your wonderful home and beautiful community.” Her voice was growing wobbly with emotion, and Zach’s hand slipped around her waist, silently supporting her.</p>
<p>“I’m so very thankful for you, Zach. Thank you.”</p>
<p>She rose on her tiptoes, lightly dusting his lips with hers so she wouldn’t say more, then lowered herself, her eyes fluttering open again. He was watching her, his own eyes dark with emotion. He set his wineglass down, then set hers alongside it before sweeping his arms around her, drawing her so close she could scarcely breathe.</p>
<p>It was perfect. Absolutely perfect.</p>
<p>* * *<br />Thank you for reading. &lt;3</p>
