Moonlight in Winter Park New

SYNOPSIS

“Moonlight in Winter Park” – A modern-day Beauty and the Beast style Christmas.

All Hope Cooper needed this year was to have the kind of Christmas her family always cherished. But with her parents gone and her only brother having to work, it doesn’t look like it’s going to work out for her. There’s nothing she can do about her parents, but she most certainly can voice her annoyance at her brother’s boss for making him work out of town all through the holidays.

Beckett James hates the holidays and everything that goes with them. They were important at one time, but now the only thing that mattered was his company and it’s continued growth and anyone who worked for him better feel the same way. If not, then they could find employment elsewhere and good riddance. With a major expansion deal on the line, Beckett needs to focus. What he doesn’t need is Hope to come barging into his mountain retreat demanding that her brother come home immediately due to an emergency.

Suddenly it’s two alone in a snowstorm. Two alone for Christmas. And two alone to fight an attraction that had been there all along. Hope soon begins to realize she may have misjudged Beckett while he comes to see that there really is something special and magical about Christmas. But once they leave their private winter wonderland and return to their normal lives, will the magic still be there?

EXCERPT

Hope couldn’t believe it, but she readily reached out and put her hand in his.  “Then I guess this place is aptly named.”

Beckett carefully pulled her to her feet.  “What do you mean?”

“I saw some of the signs as I was walking down the driveway earlier.  This place used to be called Winter Park.  If the view is how you described, I’m just saying that name is fitting.”

Beckett didn’t respond, but he did pull her in close.  “You scared the hell out of me earlier, you know that right?”  His arms slowly slid around her waist.

Hope’s breath caught in her throat.  “I didn’t mean to scare you,” she said softly, looking up into his dark eyes.

“I know.  You meant to piss me off,” he chuckled softly as one hand came up to caress her cheek.  “I’m glad I found you.”

“Me too.  I can’t even being to think what would have happened if you hadn’t come when you did.”

“That’s not what I meant,” he said quietly, and bent his head toward hers.

“Beckett…”

And then his lips touched hers and silenced her.  Hope was too surprised to react at first.  It was everything that she remembered – soft, exciting and very arousing.  The man certainly knew how to kiss.  As if they had a mind of their own, her arms came up and rested on Beckett’s broad shoulders.  They were pressed together from head to toe.

His lips were slowly sipping from hers as if he was giving her time to say no or to push him away.  Hope knew this instinctively and raked a hand up into his hair and pulled him closer- making sure he couldn’t misinterpret her decision.

BLOG TOUR: A Very Grey Christmas (Kissing Eden #3) by T.A. Foster

AVGChristmas

SYNOPSIS

I was getting ready to spend the single most important holiday of the year alone. Completely and utterly alone.

That meant he wouldn’t be there Christmas Eve. No making Christmas cookies, or listening to my dad sing off-key while my mom bustled around wrapping last-minute gifts. No decorating the tree. No midnight Christmas kiss.

No waking up in Grey’s arms. We were actually going to spend our very first Christmas in different states.

That was until Grey gave me the most unexpected gift of my life.

EXCERPT

By the time we finally said goodnight to my parents and Grey locked the guesthouse door, it was well after midnight. His arms wrapped around me and he kissed me lightly on the forehead.

“You know what I want to do we haven’t done yet?” he asked.

After last night, I was dying to know what other things we could try. “What’s that, cowboy?” I tipped toward him.

“We haven’t watched any Christmas movies.” His smile was wide.

“Christmas movies? You want to watch a movie, now?”

“Sure. I’m starting to get into this Christmas thing. Which is your favorite?” He hooked his coat on the back of the door followed by his scarf.

“That’s a tough one. All-time favorite Christmas movie?” I thought through the usual catalog. “Have you seen Christmas Vacation?”

Grey had already turned on the TV and was repositioning the pillows on the couch.

“Yeah, in high school, but let’s watch it.” He picked up the remote and started flipping through the iTunes movies.

“Be right back.” I left him searching for the movie and walked into the bedroom.

If Grey wanted to watch a Christmas movie, I had no problem with it, but I wasn’t going to make it easy for him. I pulled open the top drawer of the dresser and shuffled through what little lingerie I had. I lifted a sheer black lace bra and matching thong from the pile. It wasn’t much, but that was the point.

I shed my sweater and ignored the chill bumps on my arms and legs. I strutted into the living room in my Christmas best.

“Find the movie?” I asked and slid into the open spot on the couch.

“Damn.” Grey chuckled. “I did, but you aren’t in the mood for a movie, are you?”

“I’m in the mood for whatever you are.” My hand wrapped to the inside of his thigh. “If it’s Clark Griswold, then let’s watch it.” I stared straight ahead at the television, waiting for him to hit play, but hoping he’d accept my challenge and take me on the couch like he usually did at home.

Grey inhaled, and raked his teeth across his bottom lip. I could see the inner debate brewing.

“You don’t think I can watch this entire movie with you dressed like that, do you?” he taunted.

“I’m just more comfortable this way, that’s all. Think of these as my pajamas.” I let my palm trail over my breast and across my bare stomach. I was crossing boundaries I hadn’t tried. “Let’s watch it.” I ran my tongue along the outer edge of his ear.

Without reacting to a single advance, Grey pressed the play button and the movie started. Not what I was expecting. I sank back into the couch, realizing my seduction was going to have to wait until Cousin Eddie saved the day.
