Mistletoe Hop Dec 19 - 22, 2014

Christmas is a time of love! Celebrate the Season with tales of love and romance.

Looking for Christmas gifts? Give a book!

Well, Mistletoe is all about the kiss, isn’t it?
Here's a peek at a few... kisses.


Nick could hear her suck in a breath, in surprise or appreciation? Nick hoped to find out. He moved closer and with the sun no longer in his eyes, surprise slammed him upside the head. Nick grinned and stepped forward, trapping her against the railing. Her face had lit up, her smile diamond bright. His soul burst with happiness, responding to the joy in her face.
“Hello, beautiful.” Nick leaned down, pulling her curves against him and ravaged her mouth, not about to give her a chance to reject him. He felt her breath catch and then her arms came around his neck. He heard her glass hit the balcony floor. Nick shifted, sliding his lips along her neck. “I never dreamed it would be you.”


Corporal Nicholas 'Saint' Santiago needs to go home to reclaim the man he used to be. To be the man he was before Operation Enduring Freedom slowly hardened his heart. He needs to reconnect to the values and the reasons he is doing what he does. Saint also needs to try to forget the courageous woman he knows was meant to be his.

Petty Officer Angelina Jones' life changed the moment Saint saved her life. She survived the blast but now has to deal with the fact that she will never be whole. Knowing Saint received a 'Dear John' letter, Angelina has no intention of being his rebound romance. She needs to be loved for herself. She needs to forget about the one man she knows was meant to be hers.

They each try to find someone to help them forget.
But what does fate have planned for them?

Tine suddenly leapt up and licked her from head to toe. Ew. Brand followed suit and licked her too, evidently not to be outdone. Ugh. Now she was wet and sticky all over. Glaring at them, she stripped and dove into the pond. The sensation was decadent, the movement of the warm water caressing her hypersensitive body. Then the water swirled behind her and she recognized the dragons had followed her in.

You didn’t expect anything normal did you? It is about dragons, LOL.

They had been searching for their mate, but when they find her she is traumatized and scared to be around strange men. They must get her to accept them before they reveal their true natures. Will their love be strong enough to break down her barriers? Could she truly be destined to love two dragons?

Today Annie’s dragons will shift and fulfill her every desire, which means a fiery threesome—and true love.

Releasing her nipple, he kissed his way down her body. He moved between the juncture of her thighs. Spreading her lips with his hands, he exposed her secrets to his view.

This IS an erotic tale…

For generations Levi’s family had guarded a sacred glen in the mountains.  Still far from man this isolated area was a favorite spot of his grandfather.  Levi grew up listening to his tales and fell in love without ever having stepped foot there.
Now Levi’s family, led by his grandmother, wanted to sell the land.  With only his grandfather and Levi against it, Levi has to prove to the rest of the family why they needed to continue their guardianship.  Believing in his grandfather’s tales despite himself, Levi went armed with his camera and his well-known expertise behind the lens and headed out for proof. 
Providing that proof and protecting the secrets of the glen from the world, Gaia needs to convince Levi to continue that protection.  Daphnaie, the embodiment of his every dream, is sent to show him why, stealing his heart in the process to save her world.

Before him Aryne could see her, lying in bed, tears of loneliness staining her pillow. She made his heart ache. He softly stepped to her side. His hand touched her face and gently pushed back her hair. He leaned over and placed a gentle kiss on her forehead, turning her dreams from sadness to joy. Her body arched toward his touch as the skim of his hand, the heat of his skin traced the edges of her curves. He stepped back…and then within the shimmer of dreams disappeared.

Oh don’t worry, he does more…

A lonely woman's torrid sexual dreams and fantasy partner await her as a dominant reality in another dimension.
The sandman visits those that need him, assisting them to sleep. Until one night he meets a woman that he cannot help but return to time after time.
She is lonely. He comes to her as she drifts off to sleep, the man of her dreams. Awake or asleep, which is her reality?
He knows she is the one meant for him. He will find a way to make both of their dreams come true.

Dan picked her up, his hands sliding over her luscious ass, wrapping her legs around his hips. Leaning in, he grabbed the throw blanket tossed across the back seat and flung it over the hood of the car. He laid her down as he tugged the edge of the blanket closer, making sure her body was on it. She wrapped her arms around his neck, pulling him toward her.
Kissing her, the sweetness of her lips distracted him as he pulled out his wallet, searching by touch for his emergency condom. Slipping his wallet back in his pocket, he tore the packet open, cursing as her hands grabbed, trying to assist him.

I think they had other things on their minds, LOL.

Blaire had gotten an exciting assignment, sending her from Chicago back home to Texas. She was taking pictures of a dude ranch for the Tribune, an up and coming vacation spot for the city slicker.  Blaire couldn't help the wildfire of desire that ran through her at the uninhibited cowboy she finds in the lens of her camera.

Dan remade his ranch, making it a go to vacation spot being featured in the vacation section in a Chicago newspaper. A freelance photographer was coming to take pictures for the article. Dan couldn’t believe the hot and sassy urban cowgirl that arrived, camera in hand.

Texas is hot as hell. But it is nothing compared to the fire that blazes instantly between Blaire and Dan. Just one look, one touch, Blaire was the spark and Dan was the tinder that fed those flames, sparking a conflagration that nothing can stop.

RAFFLECOPTER (for Grand Prize) 


  1. I would have to say that my favorite Christmas cookie would be my mom's sugar cookies...

  2. Soft Molasses Cookies

    ½ cup soft butter/margarine (1 stick)
    ½ cup vegetable shortening
    1½ cup sugar
    Mix together until light and fluffy (use mixer)
    ½ cup molasses (spray with Pam in measuring cup for easy release)
    2 eggs (lightly beaten)
    Beat into creamed mixture (use mixer)
    4 cups all purpose flour
    ½ teaspoon salt
    2¼ teaspoon baking soda
    2¼ teaspoon ginger
    1½ teaspoon clover
    1½ teaspoon cinnamon
    Mix all dry ingredients together into a separate bowl and then blend with moist mixture until well blended (Kitchen Aid mixer is handy!)
    Roll dough into 1½" balls, dip tops in sugar (I gently shake in a bowl with sugar) and place on greased cookie sheet 2" apart (they will flatten out.) Note: I use a ball scoop to make my ball and then roll them in my hand to make them round, but the scoop helps keep them even in size.
    Bake at 350ยบ for 11 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE!
    After completely cooled (several hours) store in tightly sealed container. I think you should get about 4 dozen.

  3. My favorite has to be Ginger Ice Box Cupcakes. Yummy and NO Baking needed. I got this recipe off of the Two Peas a& Their Pod blog. LOL

    Here is the recipe:

    Ginger Ice Box Cupcakes

    These easy no-bake Ginger Icebox Cupcakes are perfect for any holiday party!

    Large Container of Cool Whip
    1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    Any type of Ginger Snaps type cookies
    Sprinkles, optional
    1. First mix the ground cinnamon and nutmeg into the Cool whip.
    2. To assemble the cupcakes, place a ginger snap into a cupcake liner and spread about 1 tablespoon of the Cool whip on top of a ginger snap. Place another ginger snap on top of the Cool whip to make a sandwich. Spread more Coolwhip over the cookie and add another cookie. Top the final ginger snap with Cool whip. You want to use four cookies per cupcake and end with Coolwhip.
    3. Stick in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. You can refrigerate them overnight. The whipped cream will soften the ginger snaps making them soft like cake.
    4. When ready to serve, remove the cupcakes from the refrigerator and sprinkle with sprinkles, if desired.
