Just wanted to share a snippet from my Christmas novella :)

Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time of year, but for Harper Donaldson it’s just another day.  Orphaned at an early age, she doesn’t have a single good memory of Christmas.

But, when a Santa’s Mailbox mysteriously appears in the lobby of the post office where she works as postmistress, Harper wonders what it could hurt to send her own letter to Santa.
Could he bring her the family she’d always wanted?

He could hear the tension in her voice. “Would you relax? Everything will go just fine.” 

“I can’t relax, I know how small towns are. We show up together and everyone will know. Or think they do.” 

Harper moved the iron cord aside and dug through her drawer in search of something, completely ignoring him. By God, she’s as stubborn as she is neurotic. 

“Yep, that’s right. The whole town will know the horrible truth. Everyone will know I’m in love with the postmistress. Is that so bad?” 

Harper stopped what she was doing and looked at him in her dresser mirror.

 “What did you just say?”

 “I said, is that so bad?” 

She elbowed him in the ribs. “Not that, you oaf, the other part.” She was staring, eyebrows arched. 

“Oh, you mean the part where I said I’m in love with you?” He took pleasure in the surprised look on her face. He’d happily spend a lifetime bringing out that same look. She turned to face him.

 “You love me?” A brilliant light flashed in her eyes. She threw her arms around his neck and squeezed. “I love you, too, Fin.” She leaned away a little. “I’m not really sure how it happened this fast, and without me really even realizing it until just now, but it feels right. Natural.” 

“For me, too, sweetheart.” He hugged her tight and swatted her butt. “Now, you better get a move on or we’ll be late.” He ran down the hall to the shower, leaving her to smile after him.

Alpha favorite :)

Have you ever been asked what you like about Alpha Males?  Well I never had before but when I think about it, the Alpha Male is always the one that draws me in when I read a great book.    He's just got this unbelievable presence he exudes, one that makes you stop and take notice.   He makes me want to be the heroine just so I can have him :)  He doesn't give a sh** what others think of him and that makes him even more attractive.  He's always confident and sure about himself but even if he's got doubts, you'll never know about them.  He takes charge in every aspect of his life, dominates.  Of course the gorgeous and sexy part isn't a bad thing either.  So what exactly do you like about an Alpha male??    Well today i'd love for you to leave me a comment telling me what you like, what makes you pick the Alpha every time.  And, if you'd rather have the Beta, well tell me about that too!  Dont' forget to leave your email address in case you win!
