Happy Tuesday, everyone! How was your Halloween? Mine was fabulous–the weather was great, my little goddaughter had a good first Trick Or Treating (though a bit slow, considering she just started walking), and I managed not to eat too much candy. A good time was had by all. And now on to the next holiday–Christmas!

Or at least Christmas in fiction. I have a new Harlequin Historical Undone short story out for November, One Wicked Christmas, a tale of friends-to-lovers against the backdrop of a naughty holiday house party…

London, 1806

Lady Cassandra Osborne is ready to take a new lover to her bed—and knows exactly the man she wants: Sir Ian Chandler, her late husband’s rakish best friend. The single kiss they’d shared had made her feel alive again, awakening dark needs she didn’t even know she had…though Ian had quickly pulled away. Cassie is sure he doesn’t want her, until their reunion at a Christmas house party tempts them to succumb to the desire that has haunted them both….

I know it’s a bit early to be thinking about Christmas (at least for me! I am barely over Halloween…), but to get us in the holiday spirit I will be giving away a free download of One Wicked Christmas to one commenter today. Just tell us what you did for Halloween, your favorite Christmas tradition, what kind of holiday stories you like…anything at all….

And if you don’t win a copy, you can buy One Wicked Christmas at eHarlequin or Amazon
