You can read my blog and answer the question at the end  and ENTER TO WIN an e-copy of GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST, the first book in my HAUNTED HOLIDAYS  series.

Brrr! Winter in New England. That’s where I set GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST. And, in fact, the next five stories are going to also be in the fictional town of Applesett, Mass. Why? Because for me, living in Colorado, New England is full of romance. I love the idea of deep forests and snowy hills. Sleigh rides and snow.

Yes, we have snow here. Of course we do! It’s Colorado. But you really have to drive into the mountains to have a real sleigh ride with horse drawn carriages and all the trimmings. Applesett is a small town, rural, with lots of twisting dirt roads and open fields and places to take your sweetie. Not that Nate and Jen get much time for that! They’re busy fighting off a ghost and falling in love.

But, if you read the book, Jen does have a past where sleigh rides are in order. Or does she? Jen dreams about a time a hundred years ago and another couple in love during the winter. You’ll have to read the book and decide if it’s really Jen’s karmic past, or the ghost making Jen believe it’s her past.

Either way, romance is in the air. In the past, in a horse drawn sleigh, or in the present, where Jen and Nate discover the charms of the town of Applesett and start to fall in love.

Do you find snow romantic? To  ENTER TO WIN an e-copy of GHOSTS OF CHRISTMAS PAST, the first book in my HAUNTED HOLIDAYS  series, answer the question: what’s your form of romance in the snow? Sleigh rides? Skiiing? Hot drinks by the fire? Just let me know and I’ll enter you in the drawing.

And don’t for get to hop over to Hops With Heart and the other amazing authors contests as well as the grand prize!

    In theory I think snow is romantic, but in reality I’d much rather be inside, under a blanket with a hot drink and watch the snow from a warm house.

    Sled riding then a nice warm drink cuddling together in front of a fire.

    • WOW! Have you done that? We went camping one time and woke up with ice all over the tent and a bear across the lake. It was a pretty scary camping experience. And cold! But it would have been better with a four season tent, instead of a three season tent!
