Happy Holidays Blog Hop! #HHBH Giveaway


Thank you so much for stopping by my place on the Happy Holidays Blog Hop! For my part, I’ll be sharing from my holiday, rock star romance book. And to celebrate, I’ll be giving away a Lush Bath Products gift box and a signed print copy of Sin’s Flower. Hope you enjoy this bit from Jaxon’s story, where we find him and Lily at the beach, talking…

Sin's Flower


When Jaxon James, a sexy rock star and struggling single-father, is invited to ditch California and spend Christmas in Tennessee with his estranged family, he hesitantly accepts for his young daughter’s sake.

But his attraction to his best friend’s baby sister, Lily Elstone, threatens to unravel the bonds he’s made for his daughter. The honorable thing to do would be to give up Lily. But his instincts are telling him she’s exactly the one who could bring light to his life and the missing fire to his bed.

Unfortunately, Lily’s too sweet for his world. He fears his rock and roll life style will taint her. How far are Jaxon and Lily willing to go to find what’s missing at home?


“You know I never wanted to kiss your sister, but you on the other hand.  I’m not gonna lie, I could definitely kiss you.  I won’t, of course.”

“You won’t?”

He paused again to consider the green light she’d just given him with that hopeful lilt tagging the end of her response.

“You have a great accent,” he said.  As much as he’d love to keep her talking just so he could hear her southern quirky drawl, it was time to start winding down.

“So do you,” she said.  

“I really like your voice, Lily.”  He was about to say But I can’t lick and talk at the same time so let’s shush now and we’ll get to that talk later, when she made a tiny movement that pressed her neck into his lips.   Their little word play was helping her relax so he held off on asking for her silence.  

“I like yours too.”

“I like your mouth,” he said.

“I like your…lips.”

“Lily, I changed my mind.  I am going to kiss you.”

“Jaxon, what are we doing?”

“Talking.”  He blew another breath into his favorite little place on earth right now.

And here are a couple early free presents if you’d like to partake…

  1. Hi Carlene, I really need to get to reading Jaxon’s story, it is in my TBR list, just need a few more hours in the day to get thru that huge list I have going 🙂 Happy Holidays to you!

    • Hi Eva! I know exactly what you mean! I wish that with each book that comes out, we could all receive a magical little time contraption. Maybe something with a “Pause Life” button so we could just sit down and relax and read. I’m just honored to be on your TBR list. xoxoxo Happy Holidays!

    • Hi there, Mary! Jaxon was just asking for clarification that he heard the word delicious mentioned here on his post. I confirmed and he is a happy, strutting camper. Thanks for stopping by, darl’.

    • Aww, thanks so much, Brittany! It’s always fun spending time listening to what the Sin Pointe family have to share. I really appreciate you coming by and I’m wishing you a Happy Holidays too! xoxo

    • Hi Haley! Oh my goodness, I can’t tell you how big the smile is on my face right now. Thank you so much. I’ll share a Sin Pointe novel tidbit with you. The very first moment that came to me of the Sin Pointe books was the one from Sidewalk Flower with Jaxon and Trista in the field at the venue. I wrote that scene between the two best friends and then kind of stalled on the story. It took almost a year for Trista’s hero, Lucky, to step up and let me know he was going to be her hero. During that time of waiting, thoughts of Jaxon and his band and his heartaches and mischief were what stayed with me and eventually made the books into a series. It means so much to hear that he is your favorite. He really is the heart and soul of Sin Pointe. Happy New Years, dear! xoxo
