Krystal Shannan's stop on Hot Winter Nights Event #HotWinterNights

Welcome to my stop on Nicole's Hot Winter Nights. I'm so excited to participate and get to know all of you. I love meeting new people and making new friends.

Holidays are my favorite time of the year. I live in Texas and we don't get a lot of cold weather or snow. So when we do the whole state tends to close down and stay home, snuggled warm in our beds. If by chance an employer decides not to close, wise employees call in rather than brave the black-iced roads and lunatic drivers, LOL!

In the meantime, those of us at home with our special someone can start fogging up the bedroom windows! Or, if there's no one special at the moment, a fabulous book and a cup of rich hot cocoa can be quite satisfying as well.



What is your favorite thing to do when the snow starts to fall and you find yourself at home? 


A Very Russian Christmas will be released by Decadent Publishing on Dec. 7th! It's my first holiday novella and I'm super excited. It was a fun story to write! Ksenia and Matt were a great couple to get to know. You can go here to add it to your TBR list on GoodReads! 


For most of her adult life, Ksenia Sharanov has been shadowed by bodyguards. Not a sex life in sight! But when a botched kidnapping inadvertently lands her in the arms of Matt O’Reilly, a sexy retired Marine, she finds romance when she least expects it. 

While you are waiting for A Very Russian Christmas to release, I hope you will take the time to get and read Open House. It's the first book in my Pool of Souls paranormal romance series. Add it to your GoodReads TBR here!

Intrinsically woven into the fabric of human existence, Aphrodite, Titan Goddess of Love and Passion, dedicates herself to matching soul mates.  
Rebecca Carol and Robert Corvin missed their original chance to bond when Ares, God of War, took control of Robert's career ten years ago. Their souls have naturally pulled them back together for a second chance at love, but...How far will the gods go to get their own way?  
Will divine influence create another perfect match or will it tear them apart forever?

Kristen over at www.mommysreading.com said, "They say there is a thin line between love and hate. When two strong willed gods clash, everyone needs to watch out! If you're into Clash of the Titans and love Harlequin Romances then I would recommend this one for you."

  14. Since I live in Southern California, I can get the best of both worlds here. I can go to the mountains and play in the snow and I can go to the beach and play in the sand and water..... And I can do them both in the same day if I wanted to. But I love to curl up by the fire on a cold winter night with the hubby drinking hot chocolate toddies and watching a movie, or reading a HOT romance book if hubby is working. Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

  24. I'm with you there for I live just outside of Austin TX and we do have a fireplace but we might get to use it two or three times a year if it gets cold enough. but I do love it when we do get to have the fire going. I love snuggling up with a glass a wine and a great book too. But most of the time I do snuggle up and watch movie with hubby all year long.

    Wishing you many blissful hot winter nights this holiday season.
