Christmas Blog Hop Post

Christmas is symbolic for different people in different ways. When I was younger it was all about the presents and the food. As I got older it became a day to spend with the family and eating too much rich food I tried not to eat too much of normally.
Now, I'm married to a Greek husband and have two beautiful little girls.
Christmas has taken on a whole new meaning!
It is now a month long process- not just a day. We get a real tree, decorate it and try to keep it alive in
the Australian heat. I buy presents for my extended family and try to hide them from my girls. I bake traditional Greek cookies and look forward to the day when I can make not only a Greek Pastitso, but an Aussie Pavlova for my families.
It is a day for family, food and presents- I take it back- some things just never change!

I am releasing my first story next week.
A contemporary sexy romance with a Christmas theme- Nanny Wanted!
About an Aussie nanny who gets hired by a Greek millionaire and subsequently falls in love with him.
I wonder where I got that idea from :-)
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!!!

  2. When I was a child in South Florida (Miami), we had a silver aluminum Christmass tree with a color wheel because live trees wouldn't have survived. Now I live where the trees are fresh and the smell permeated the entire house. My favorite holiday!

    Thanks

  5. One of my favorite Christmas Romance Books is The Untamable Rogue by Annette Blair! The story is about Ashford Blackburne Fifth Earl and he has to get married and get his willing bride pregnant before Christmas or his grandfather won’t let him inherit his money. Ash truly needs to inherit the money because his late father squandered it all away and he is taking care of his mother. After getting stood up at the alter, again, Ash and his friends go to the local pub where the owner plays a drunken Ash in a card game…his consolation prize is the pubs daughter Larkin, who he wants to get ride of. Ash has to learn to forgive…Larkin has to learn how to trust…can two completely different people find love together. This is a cute, extremely funny, romantic story with a surprise Christmas ending!

  23. I like the idea of merging traditions and making your own. My husband come for the Near East and my ancestry is from Sweden. Yet, always those memories of a child are buried within you and those embers always remain.
