I'd like to welcome author, Marina Adair, to my blog today, to help promote her book, KISSING UNDER THE MISTLETOE.


St. Helena Vineyard, Book One
 Regan Martin stopped believing in Christmas miracles six years ago when she lost everything—her house, her job, and her impeccable reputation in the wine industry—after she fell in love with a man she had no idea was married. Then Regan gets a chance for a fresh start in the Napa Valley. With her dream job, dream home, and her daughter enrolled in a wonderful new school, she starts wondering if holiday wishes really do come true.

But she soon tumbles back down to earth when she learns that her new boss is none other than Gabe DeLuca, the scorned wife’s brother. Gabe wants nothing more than home-wrecking Regan Martin out of his life, his sister’s world, and his family’s business. Mostly, he wants the lush beauty out of his head. Yet his attempts to run her out of town have him thinking twice, especially when he sees that Regan may hold the key to tracking down his sister’s stolen start-up capital. Even worse for Gabe, Regan might just be his Christmas wish and hold the key to his heart.

About the author:  
Every author can identify the exact moment of inception, when the skies parted, the heavens sang, and a divine being came forth, anointing them one of the chosen, blessed to spend the rest of eternity weaving stories of ‘ever after’ for mass consumption.

For me, it wasn’t so much a moment, but an intervention.

Sophomore year, my fellow Blockheads sat me down and explained that I had an addiction. I was a NKOTB–A-holic. Afraid of becoming enablers, they refused to listen to another one of my never-ending stories about our passionate intrigues with Jordan, Joe, Jon, Danny, and Donnie. What they didn’t understand was that New Kids on the Block wasn’t my obsession—they were my current romance-medium of choice.

Twenty years later, my romance addiction is a hard, bodice-ripping, half-dozen books per week. When I’m not reading it or watching it, I am writing it—or workshopping it—or editing it—or strategizing how my hands to get more of it.

In 2010, I realized I was closer to menopause than prom and got serious about my career, writing my way toward a post-graduate degree in creative writing (in the off chance that the first one didn’t stick) and becoming a published romance author.

January of 2012, I sold my first novel, TUCKER’S CROSSING, to Kensington Books set to release August, 16 2012. Also coming this year from Montlake Romance is the St. Helena Vineyard series: KISSING UNDER THE MISTLETOE hits shelves October, 16 2012, followed by SUMMER IN THE VINEYARDS in April 2013, and the third in the series releasing October 2013. In 2014 the first in the Sugar Series, BUT SUGAR’S TWICE AS SWEET, will release from Grand Central’s Forever line.
I live in a century-year-old log cabin, nestled in the majestic redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains, with my husband, daughter, three kitties, eleven chickens, and the occasional wild turkey.

  1. Oh, this book sounds so good. I'm definitely going to put it on my tbr list. I haven't read anything by this author yet. I love discovering new authors. Ok, my favorite thing/part about the Christmas holidays is getting up early (who'd of thought it) and watching the smiles that pop on my children's faces when they open their gifts. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

    2. Hi Tyhada~

      Usually I am such a grumpy morning person, but on Christmas I am with you....I love waking up early and seeing my daughter tear through her stocking. Thanks for dropping in and sharing!

  2. My favorite part of the holidays is spending time with the family and seeing my kids faces when they open presents. I love baking with the kids and singing Christmas carols.
