1. If you could have one of your characters under the Christmas tree to unwrap who would it be and why? it’s a tough choice between Alexander from Not So Silent Night and Mel from Alone No More.

What is your favorite holiday tradition? I like to say that my house is the island of misfit toys. I always invite single friends and people who are away from family over, people who might otherwise be alone on Christmas.3. Real Christmas tree or artificial? Artificial, most people in my family are allergic to real Christmas trees.4. What is your favorite holiday treat? Candy, cocoa, eggnog…ect. Cookies. My friend and I usually get together and bake about 8 different kinds, for gifts and for ourselves.5. Do you like to wait until Christmas morning to unwrap your gifts, or are you the kind of kiddie who unwraps a few the night before? I’m terrible about unwrapping a gift as soon as I get it. Seriously, I am worse than children, you need to keep a present away if you hope to keep my out of it.6. What is your favorite Christmas movie? I like the cartoons, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas.7. What is your favorite Christmas song? White Christmas8. What would you most like to see under your tree this year? A brand new laptop! Actually I know I’m getting one I just can’t wait to have it in my hands.9. What was your most embarrassing Christmas gift? This dates me a bit, but a step grandma got me a New Kids on the Block doll when I was 10 or 11. It was so embarrassing since I was into Guns N Roses and the like instead.10. Do you hang a mistletoe and if so, who is your favorite person that you’ve kissed beneath it?

Anna is a lonely woman, running her dead grandmother’s flower shop. She hates Christmas and could not feel more lost when a handsome and mysterious Russian, Alexander, walks into her shop and her life. Each has secrets and magic they are harboring. Just as their passion erupts, the good old boys in town threaten to ruin everything. Getting to know each other is tough for most couples, but with a pack of werewolves out to destroy them, things become intense. They find themselves in a fight for their lives. Can their new-found love give them the strength to win against this threat and trust in the future?
“So you just got the quick sketch of my life, so perhaps I can ask where you are from. I love your accent.”
“Russia. I grew up right outside of Moscow.”
“Russia? Wow! What brings you to small town Vermont? Other than the snow, I can’t imagine we are anything like Moscow,” Anna said in true wonderment.
“My family came to visit and we wanted to go somewhere quiet. I live in Washington, D.C. now. Here seemed like a good spot for a vacation. And I must say I am glad we picked this town on a whim.” Alexander moved even closer to her, close enough they were almost touching and he could gently stroke her hair, sending a visible shiver down her back. “I am not making you uncomfortable, am I?”
Anna swallowed. “No, uncomfortable is not exactly the word for what you are making me feel.” She turned around so she stared up into Alexander’s deep blue eyes. They were close enough for her to kiss his full lips and she found herself wanting to very much.
“You are a very beautiful woman, Anna.” Alexander stepped even closer so their bodies touched. Anna immediately felt heat rush all through her body from only a little contact. She felt her own blue eyes widen in anticipation.
“Thank you,” Anna murmured, feeling a blush spread across her face, so evident on her pale skin. “So are you… I mean, you are very attractive too.”
Alexander smiled and leaned down so his lips almost touched hers. “I am going to kiss you now, Anna, unless you tell me not to.”
“Umm, okay.” Anna’s breath grew heavier as Alexander brought his lips to meet hers.
