Title: Write Before Christmas
Author: Julie Hammerle
Genre: Holiday Romance
About Write Before Christmas:
You’ve probably heard of me.
Reclusive fantasy author turned famous when his series got developed into a mega TV hit.
Except now I’m way behind deadline, and the whole world is waiting to see what I’ll write next.
The pressure is getting to me, and I. Can’t. Write.
Cue: small town where people don’t recognize me.
Cue: my assistant insisting on a personal chef to keep me fed and nothing more.
Cue: finding the first bit of inspiration I’ve felt in months whenever she’s around…
Am I a walking cliche now, or what?
Dani Cooper seems to have her own hurdles to jump this holiday season. Newly divorced, looking for her next move. She’s the first person who’s seen me for me in way too long. And I see her, too--as way more than just an employee, a divorcee, a cook. She’s becoming my muse…
My hand went straight to my mouth, and I gasped.
My dad craned his neck to see me from his recliner. “You okay?”
“Fine, Dad.” I counted to thirty in my head before rising from my chair and casually taking my book up to my bedroom where I could be alone. I flopped onto the bed and turned to page 243 of book one of The Bastyan Saga.
Markys returned to his chambers, still full from the twelve-course meal the queen had planned. She’d wanted desperately to impress the lords and ladies who had traveled far and wide for the king’s tournament, and she had succeeded. Behind his solid oak door, Markys discovered Lady Tatyana of Olen sprawled naked on his bed, wearing only a diamond and sapphire necklace.
I swallowed and turned the page.
“Greetings, Markys,” came another voice, from the shadows.
A knock sounded on my bedroom door.
Clearing my throat, I marked the page with a dog ear and quickly hid the book under my pillow. I set my reading glasses on the bedside table. “Una? Come on in.” My voice came out all shaky and odd. I wasn’t fooling anyone. Una would know for sure that I’d been reading an erotic scene about a young man’s first sexual encounter with his mother’s rival and his father’s best friend. It had to be written all over my face.
Holy crap, where had Matt come up with this stuff? Personal experience?

Hosted by: Buoni Amici Press, LLC.
Once a man who lived by the letter of the law.
Newt Tobias will do anything for his little girl. Even take early retirement, sell his city home, and move to cottage country, hoping that the simpler life will provide a better balance for his troubled teenage daughter.
Yet, not long after they’ve settled, he finds himself toe-to-toe with a stubborn, fiery tempered woman with pretty brown eyes.
Once a recluse preferring to live alone.
Working with troubled adolescents, Frederique Marchand doesn’t suffer fools and won’t put up with bullies. Especially handsome strangers like Newt who think they can run roughshod over her. She loves her work, but on her own time she much prefers the company of her menagerie of animals.

Jolene is done with pilots. She’s better than just another quick layover. But dating is difficult with her chaotic schedule in and out of airport terminals and hotel rooms all around the world. She’s tired of watching couples fly off to romantic destinations and families spending vacations together. However, she doesn’t plan to be a flight attendant forever. She just doesn’t know what she wants to do yet. One thing she does know is that she certainly doesn’t want to do that arrogant Greek bastard Jim.
Dimitrios “Jim” Georgakopolous is a contract pilot who loves his job — who wouldn’t when you can pick and choose your own schedule and destination? When a flight cancelation turns into the best layover of his life, he suddenly finds he doesn’t want to leave the arms of a certain dark-haired beauty named Jolene. Unfortunately, the storm that stranded them both there compares little to Jolene’s rage when she finds out he's a pilot.
Jim never expected to find his airport tryst again. Jolene certainly didn’t expect to be the stewardess on the same plane that Jim’s traveling on to Greece.
Will this be a twist of fate or a modern-day Greek tragedy?

Gail Haris believes in fairytales, love, and laughter as the best medicine.
She was born and raised in a small town in the Midwest. After graduating with a degree in Mass Communications, Gail went on adventures traveling in America and Europe.
But her favorite adventures are the ones where she gets lost in a book.
Her love for reading and traveling lead her to attend book conventions. Those conventions gave her the encouragement she needed to combine her passion for creativity and storytelling. Using coffee and her imagination, she loves writing contemporary romances that blend laughter and true love out of every day chaos.
When Gail isn’t day dreaming in front of her computer, she’s busy raising her two daughters with the man of her dreams. She loves traveling with her family, binge watching television series with her husband, singing Disney songs with her daughters, and having huge family and friends get-togethers that involve lots of food and usually a cake.
She hopes by following her own dream of becoming an author, she can set an example to her daughters that dreams can become a reality. Maybe she can encourage you too.
Never stop believing in love, dreams, and yourself. And coffee…don’t give up on coffee and books ;)

BAD DADDY (Dirty Little Secret Duet Book 1)
The bold warning that blared like sirens around me at the indecent attraction for my roommate’s father.
It was improper and forbidden.
I was hungry for attention. Determined. And he was an appetite that needed to be fulfilled.
I told myself just once, but now that I’ve gotten a taste, there’s no turning back now.
She made a mistake taunting me.
Thinking she could handle a man like myself. I shouldn’t have allowed her so close. A stronger man would have denied her.
But I’m a bad bad man.
And if I had any willpower of staying away from this illicit attraction…
It’s gone now.
SWEET LITTLE LIES (Dirty Little Secret Duet Book 2)
He wasn’t what destiny had in store for me.
He was everything wrong in a man I was supposed to fall in love with.
He was dangerous.
His eyes told me so.
The words he tempted me with were simply sweet little lies to lure me in. And now...
I’m trapped in his web of desire and temptation.
She only had herself to blame.
Taunting the beast with the forbidden fruit.
A man can only be tempted for so long, until he takes a bite. Devours his prey.
Now she’s my pretty little toy.
And I will stop at nothing to break her. Unless…
She breaks me first.
