Christmas story - New Release!!

IPB Image

Releasing November 29th!

It's Micah's last assignment, the one that would earn him his wings. He felt prepared for the challenge ahead of him this Christmas season—until he met her. Karen had been a forgotten child, a loner, and refused to open herself to hurt. She'd been down that road more than once, and very recently had been dealt a miserable hand, being stood up at the altar.

Could an angel on a mission have the answer to her frozen heart? Could the heart of a wounded child locked inside a grown woman bring a forever love together? Only the choice of an angel will make this a Christmas to remember, for both of them.

Chatting today

I'll be floating around two different playgrounds today if you would like to join me.

Want to win a free book?

Aurora Salvage is looking for a new life, and a new leaf to turn. She's alone for the first time in ten years, when she loses her husband in a tragic accident while he is on assignment. Drake McKenna is the resident professor of the little New England town she's moved into. A small park is the center of the community, and it's the first place she finds a level of comfort. This is an unfortunate turn for Drake, who's all but claimed the park as his own personal sanctuary where he could hide himself and his wounded heart.

When Drake's father falls ill, however, his only recourse is to return to Scotland, and see for himself how things are, as well as try to keep his brother's wife from claiming their heritage from under his brother's nose. He returns to find his father sick and in bed, but not on the deathbed his brother had first insinuated. Instead, he and Aurora shock not only the household, but his brother when he arrives with a wife. Sean described their father's illness as worse than it was to convince Drake to return home, but he'd not expected the turn of events, nor how deeply all would be affected by his homecoming.

Well, I'm tickled to say my next release, A STROLL IN THE PARK, with The Dark Castle Lords will be releasing this Thursday, a week early! Yay! So that means I have to get on the ball.

I'm going to be chatting about this book LIVE! Yep. October 22nd, at the Night Owl Romance chat room. from 7-9 pm CST.

There will be at least one lucky winner during the chat, and I have a contest right now! Right here!

It's really easy to. Visit my site and read the excerpt (Links below) and tell me who Aurora's husband was. See? How easy is that? Also a random poster on my blog(s) from now until October 23rd will receive a free download of this contemporary romance. That's three chances to win a free copy!

Link to my site Visit my e-books page and read the excerpt posted with this book! Email me the answer to the husband question to Diana dot castilleja with Answer in the subject line. I'll announce the winner and email them on the 23rd.
