Check out this new release from the talented Tena Stetler, available today, just in time for the holidays.
A Witch's Holiday Wedding by Tena Stetler

Elemental witch, Pepper McKay and former Navy SEAL, Lathen Quartz have built Lobster Cove Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Center on enchanted McKay land. During a romantic interlude on Halloween night, Pepper happily agrees to become Lathen’s wife. What better day than Winter Solstice for their wedding in a town that loves celebrations and Christmas. However, planning a wedding and operating their wildlife center takes a toll on both Pepper and Lathen. 
 When the couple takes a much-needed break for Thanksgiving with family in Colorado, a Maine snowstorm fills the center with injured wildlife. Lathen finds himself drawn into a covert military mission, while trying to deal with issues concerning friends and family. Pepper wants to cancel the wedding. Is she having second thoughts? Will the nosy McKay ghosts, Lathen’s werewolf pack, Pepper’s parents, and her best friend help or hinder the wedding and holiday plans?

A strong arm whipped around her waist, the air whooshed out as she squealed. Pepper balled up her gloved fist as a large warm hand wrapped around her wrist. "I've seen you defend yourself. Not going to chance it." A deep voice chuckled behind her.
"Lathen -- I'm going to..."
He spun her around and covered her cold lips with his warm ones. Werewolves run several degrees warmer than most of the population, one of the many things she loved about him. She relaxed into him, their parkas making a wisping sound as the material rubbed against each other. "That's better," he murmured against her lips. 
All at once the lights in the town square blinked on. Low positioned red and green laser light decorations sparkled over the snow-covered ground and onto the gazebo complementing the white lights. From the other direction, a blue laser sprinkled tiny snowflakes across the building. Evening fell quickly in December. 
"This is absolutely beautiful," She breathed against his chilled cheek and whirled out of his hold taking in all the lighted decorations not visible earlier. Then she pointed toward the bulletin board. "I've been reading the town's holiday events, Lobster Cove really embraces Christmas." 
"Told you." Lathen said smugly. "Even some of the boats docked in the harbor are decked out with colored lights."

Christmas Blog Tour

I’m taking part in a fun and unique holiday blog tour, in which all of the authors have been replaced by elves. J Come take a look…

Hi, I’m am elf named Krafty Kelly.

At the North Pole, I am a gift wrapper. I love my job because I get to be creative and decorative all day long. But beware, because my crafty nature isn’t limited to wrapping…you might find some tricky surprises in those bows and ribbons.
While working, I like listening to fun, upbeat holiday songs, like Sleigh Ride and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

My favorite holiday drink is eggnog with Irish cream. When I put some marshmallows on top, it becomes a snack, too. J

I’m a Secret Santa for Frangelica Tinselbaubles. For Christmas, I’m giving her a sweet bar, filled with nuts, melted chocolate, cookies crumbles, caramel and jam, to top her delicious shortbread cookies.

Here’s a special holiday craft: 

Homemade wreaths

If you buy a Christmas tree that has some sagging branches that need to be cut off, put the branches to good use.

Bend a wire hanger into a circle. Overlap branches in a circle and attach to the wire hanger, and to each other, with a hot glue gun. Secure to hanger by tying twine around the branches and hanger in several spots. Cover the twine with tinsel or ribbon so it doesn’t show. Hot glue any other decorations you want, and you have your own lovely wreath.

An act of charity brings them together, but can they be as generous to each other?
For most people, the holidays are a time of warmth, happiness and celebration. But to Jenna Samuels, they mean only one thing. Mounting debt. A single mother, Jenna struggles to make ends meet and to her, it’s a season of excess and distress.
James Garrison is in over his head, too. His ex-wife said he wasn’t equipped to take care of his twins, and now that he’s got joint custody, he fears she was right. They’re wild, spoiled, and always fighting. When they knock Jenna’s daughter into the “Gifting Tree,”—a part of their town’s charity collection—the parents are immediately attracted to each other. But James has had his fill of cold women and Jenna won’t make the mistake of falling for another man who disappears when life gets too heavy.
As their paths cross, James and Jenna must decide whether first impressions are accurate, or if sometimes, people are not what you assume at all.
