Holidays with the Beachwalk Babes Blog Hop



Happy Holidays! I'm thrilled you're hopping with the Beachwalk Press Babes. I know you have lots of stops to make so I'll be brief. For those of you who don't know me, I'm Ella Jade and I have nine books either published or under contract with the fabulous Beachwalk Press.

This is such a fun and crazy time of the year. My favorite part of the holiday season is when winter break starts. This year my kids last day of school is the Friday before Christmas. We have twelve glorious days off. No alarm clock, no homework and no stress. My husband takes the whole break off too. We watch movies, visit family, eat out, order in and RELAX. Its a nice way to recharge and celebrate the season. This year we're taking the boys to see Elf, The Musical the Saturday before Christmas. Its one of our favorite holiday films so we're really looking forward to seeing it live on stage. I hope you all have a magical season.

GIVEAWAY

 Today I'm offering up an eBook copy of one of the titles below and a swag pack with Bath and Body Works Goodies ;)



Can an arranged marriage lead to love?

Recent college graduate Gabriella has finally married the man of her dreams, the older, charismatic attorney Lorenzo Martinez. She's had a crush on him for as long as she can remember and always imagined they'd one day find their happily ever after. Unfortunately, they enter into a union arranged by their fathers.

Lorenzo is charming, protective, and loyal to his crime lord father Carlo. When Carlo asks Lorenzo to marry Gabriella he jumps at the opportunity. He's been drawn to her for many years and knows by marrying her he's helping to protect her father.

Gabby is resentful and won't be Lorenzo's charity case. But sparks fly and the couple soon gives into their desire, realizing they were meant to be together.

What happens when Carlo's enemies threaten their future? Will someone get caught in the crossfire?

An affair and a shocking secret threaten to tear apart a rich and powerful family.

Claudia Samson, housekeeper to the privileged Callahan family, finds herself alone and pregnant after a brief fling with Gavin, the youngest Callahan son. When she informed him of the pregnancy he accused her of running a scam and made it clear that she was on her own.

Brody Callahan, Gavin's older half-brother, has devoted his entire life to running the family business. He doesn't realize what he's been missing by throwing himself into his work until he finds Claudia asleep in the family guest bedroom. He has discovered his very own Sleeping Beauty. Intrigued by the young woman, he vows to get to know her better.

Although Claudia is instantly attracted to the charismatic businessman, she knows her secret will destroy any chance they have for a future together, but Brody's awfully hard to resist.

Meanwhile, as Gavin watches Brody and Claudia's relationship develop, he begins to devise a plan to use the secret to his advantage. He wants full partnership in the business—something he was denied by both his brother and their deceased father—and maybe now he can finally obtain it.

Can Brody and Claudia survive the storm, or will the secrets and blackmail destroy both them and their love?

One weekend—no strings, no expectations, and no commitments. On Sunday afternoon it all ends, or does it?

No-nonsense businessman Spencer Cannon has a dilemma. He's headed to Connecticut for the weekend to attend his cousin's elaborate wedding. His whole family will be there in addition to his obsessed ex-girlfriend Ava. According to Spencer's brother, Ava has been telling her friends she's planning a magical reunion with her favorite ex-boyfriend. Spencer's not in the mood to deal with her, but he can't miss the wedding. He needs a plan.

Struggling Brooklyn waitress and aspiring graphic designer Dakota Vercelli has fallen on hard times. College debts, pending eviction, and her sick mother are taking a toll on her. A chance encounter with Mr. Cannon, CEO of Cannon and Carrington Advertising, leads to a proposition that may be just the thing to solve both of their problems. Spencer's offer—spend four days with him during the wedding festivities and keep his ex off his trail. In return, he'll compensate her generously for her time. He needs a weekend girlfriend, and Dakota needs the cash.

It was just supposed to be a business deal, but after sharing a room, kissing under the stars, and attending a wedding, their attraction is undeniable. Will the illusion end when the weekend is over or is the proposition just the beginning?

  9. Cool that you guys are going to see a musical! My parents took my brother and I to see Trans Siberian Orchestra for a few years, they were always playing in WV super close to Christmas. It's the *only* Christmas music I like. I don't like the super fluffy, super happy stuff that gets played on repeat starting before Thanksgiving. Plus, those are songs that I had to play over and over when in a strings class in school. *shudders* TSO for me, please :)
    The Weekend Proposition :) (email's in blogger profile) Happy holidays, Ella!!

  30. I too love Christmas Break...I work for my folks so I also take the break off to be home with the kids. we usually finish off the baking, we make goody gift baskets for all our extended family, not the immediate ones we exchange gifts with. It hopefully teaches the kids that you don't have to "get" in order to give and enjoy. I just finished The Master of the Inn. Loved it (and Logan)!!!
