Welcome back to day two of the Stuff Your Stocking Blog Hop! There are so many great authors in this hop it's enough to make you dizzy. Hang on, because it's not over yet.
As a treat for you today, I've decided to do a little something different. I know montage is supposedly for movies and photos, but why not for written works as well? I've taken the liberty of putting together my own. Instead of getting only the first page or so of the book (which you are more than welcome to peek at HERE), I'm giving you bits and pieces from throughout the story.
Don't forget to comment in order to be entered into my contest to win your very own copy of Emmy's Wish. That's all. A comment. I'm easy that way.
Emmy’s Wish in a Writers Montage
My shiny new release is fun, festive, and a whole lotta naughty. Who knew elves could have so much fun? Emmy is a tiny Workshop elf and has begged Santa for years for a partner that would be...more than what most Workshop elves offer. She's a persistent little thing, and her years of wishing have finally paid off. Question now, is can sweet Emmy take every part of what her wish entails?
Dancing a little to make her bell sing as she made her way into the living room, she didn’t pay attention around her, and her leg banged against something solid. Off balance, she fell over the obstacle and landed hard on the floor.
“Mmm, Merry Christmas to me,” a low, male voice resonated through the room.
She clapped her hands and, raising her head, whispered, “Thank you, Santa.” Looking back into the arresting face of the male underneath her, she said, “You’re my gift. I get to play with you all day!”
“Let the games begin,” he announced in a hushed whisper.
Spreading his stance, and with little effort, Trey swung the hook up and over a rafter. The hook swung around the rafter three times before stopping and digging into the beam. He tugged to secure it. It didn’t escape her notice that he’d placed the rope to drop dead center over her bed.
She shuddered at his words, spoken right against her ear, tickling and stimulating her at the same time. “You can push me as far as you want, Trey.”
“I wasn’t done with the first one. You’re so hot it melted before I could even put it where I wanted.”
They only had a few hours left, and she wanted them filled with as many happy memories as possible.
“Emmy, I’m going to give you the best memory of all.”
Go too slow and you’d never get in. Too fast, and she’d want to kill you from the pain.
I hope you enjoyed this sip-by-sip take on Emmy's Wish. Remember, all you have to do to win your own e-copy is make a comment on any of my blog posts during this hop which runs Dec 16, 17 and 18th. I'll announce a winner on the eve of the 19th. Don't forget to leave me an email addy for contact.
