Pardon my enthusiasm, but I am thrilled to announce that today is release day for my brand new Harlequin Superromance, The Christmas Present. The story of Vivian, a lawyer from San Francisco's Nob Hill and Rafael, the owner of a teen center in the worst area of S.F., it details their struggle to save an innocent teen-ager from going to jail for a murder he didn't commit.
Vivian and Rafael's story is a story I've wanted to write for a long time, and one that seemed perfect for this holiday season. It's a story about family and forgiveness, love and redemption, and the joy that comes from putting someone else before yourself. These are the values I try to remember all year round, but that always seem a little easier to practice around the holidays.
Maybe it's because I love the holidays and everything about them. From trimming the tree to wrapping presents to visiting friends and family to donating time and money to a worthy cause to getting my boys all dressed up, I love the holidays. There's just something about this time of year that makes everything and anything seem possible.
So tell me, what do you like about the holiday season? What makes you happy about this time of year?
