Book Blurb:

Secretly married…to a prince! 
Zoe Sarris hasn't seen Crown Prince Demetrius Castanavo since their secret elopement. So she's shocked when he requests her interior design services. She's only just pieced her broken heart back together, and seeing Demetrius—as gorgeous and guarded as ever—threatens to shatter it all over again… 
However, the shocking news that they are actually still married changes everything. Especially when Demetrius reveals he wants his princess back…preferably in time for Christmas!

Book Excerpt:

Demetrius crossed his muscular arms. “Perhaps hiring you was a mistake—”

“No—” She bit back her next words but it was too late. Demetrius’s brows lifted at her sudden outburst. “I mean, we have an agreement. Or at least I do with Mr. Belmonte.”

“Agreements are made to be broken.”

“But it’s in writing.”

“And you didn’t think that I would leave myself a loophole—a way out if the need arose?”

Who is this man? And what had happened to the laid-back Demetrius?

Her gut told her to get out now. That she was getting in far too deep with a man who still had a hold on her heart. But what kind of daughter would that make her? This was her chance to make the remainder of her mother’s life better.

And to complicate matters further, she had no job to return to. She’d already resigned from her position as interior designer for the island’s most prominent and discriminating furniture store. And most important, this job paid well—well enough to pay her mother’s bills.

Zoe was stuck.

“You still haven’t answered my question. Why did you hire me?” She watched him carefully, not sure what sort of reaction to expect.

“I wanted the best for this job. And you are the best on the island.”

Was he serious? He thought she was the best? A warmth swirled in her chest and rose to warm her cheeks. Their gazes connected and held. Her heart thudded harder, faster. She refused to acknowledge that his words meant anything to her. She was over him. Past him.

“So you just expect us to work together like… like nothing ever happened?”

Book Fun Friday Welcomes Returning Guest Author Samanthya Wyatt



Next up on Book Fun Friday’s Christmas showcase is returning guest author Samanthya Wyatt with her steamy sizzling fresh out yesterday on Amazon called : A Hero Grinch for Christmas  


Author Bio
 
Samanthya lives with her husband in the Shenandoah Valley. She left her accounting career and married a military man traveling and making her home in the United States and abroad. Once she found historical romance novels, she couldn’t put a book down. She fell in love with the characters and needed to know their happy ending.


One day she put words to paper creating a story of her own. The more she wrote, the more she became involved with the characters, and they seemed to take a life of their own. She relishes the challenge of penning a story with strong characters, a bit of humor, and active scenes while creating new characters and bringing them together in a romantic tale. It took years of writing, joining RWA, joining chapters, entering contests, submissions & rejections which created the author she is today. By keeping her spirit and turning criticism into drive she has achieved her career as a published romance author.

Book Title:

“A Hero Grinch for Christmas”,  a Christmas contemporary

Log Line:

Dani will not allow The Grinch to hide from Christmas.

Book Tag Line:

Dani will not allow The Grinch to hide from Christmas. She will cure Hunter of his nasty mood, even if it kills her. But who will save her from his passionate kisses.


Book Blurb:

War hero, Hunter Armstrong, has seen enough devastation to last a lifetime. At the end of his latest Army term, he accepted his discharge papers and never looked back. His uncle’s home is tucked away in the majestic mountains, a perfect place for him to hide from Christmas and his own memories. But he can’t hide from the delectable Dani. The last thing he needs is a female in his life. But this one has the face of an angel and eyes you could drown in.

Dani Wimer left the Colorado Mountains and relocated in the bright lights of New York City. Every December she returns to the village of Evergreen. When a hunky military guy enters her aunt’s shop, he seems lost and angry. His scowl is intimidating, but that doesn’t bother the spunky girl who celebrates the holidays like it’s Christmas every day. She decides to put a smile on his Grinch face and ends up losing her heart in a passionate whirlwind. 


Book Excerpt:

“You’re not serious?” At least he wasn’t yelling.
“A tree would be nice.”
He stood, that unhappy face as attractive as ever. “It’s freezing and you want a tree?”
“Yes.” She crossed her arms, accidently squeezing her breasts together.
His gaze dropped to her chest, then jerked back to her face. “You can forget it.”
She never used female assets to get her way. But with Hunter, she couldn’t resist. She gave her best pouty look, wetting her lower lip seductively. “You want to kiss me, or kill me with that ferocious scowl.”
He took a threatening step forward, but stopped as if he changed his mind. His molten eyes met hers. “I’m going outside.”
“I’ll keep the fire burning, and I’ll warm you up when you get back.” As soon as the words were out of her mouth, she realized how they sounded. He shook his head again, looking a tad confused, and cautious. She didn’t know what else to do. The man simply needed to let go of all his pent up frustration.
What would it take to make this guy crack?
Two hours later, she’d arranged the lights so the whole lower floor of the cabin glowed with Christmas spirit. She’d even hung red ribbons over the deer antlers with a strand of sparkling white lights, and above the hearth, greenery with bright red bulbs. The candelabra with lit candles sat on the mantle, giving the room a touch of grace.
The front door opened. Hunter stomped in, snow flying everywhere. He slammed the door and huffed out a breath.
“Here’s your damn tree!”
Her heart flipped. He did that for her?
God, he was handsome. His cheeks were red from the wind, snow covered his wild blond hair, and that adorable scowl obscured his face. She wanted to kiss him.
Instead, she burst out laughing.


Question for You Dear Reader:

I love Christmas romance stories. How about you? Do you watch the Hallmark channel at Christmas time?
