Update: Congratulations to Leigh our winner of this giveaway.
In celebration of Sarah Morgan’s first full length contemporary, Sleigh Bells in the Snow, Dear Author is actually participating in a blog tour! It’s like the first one since we remade the entire site to celebrate the last of the Hunger Games trilogy. Who knew how that was going to turn out. Save us little golden bird!
Ahem. So Sunita wrote her fangirl review earlier and how could she not? Sarah Morgan writes really good contemporaries. Even when Morgan is writing within the Harlequin Presents constraints she delivers a really pro female storyline with a fairly believable conflict. And her asshole to doormat ratio is pretty even (meaning the heroine is not too much of a doormat to the hero’s asshole quotient).
Sarah Morgan’s official bio reads like this:
USA Today bestselling author Sarah Morgan writes hot, happy contemporary romance and her trademark humor and sensuality have gained her fans across the globe. Described as ‘a magician with words’ by RT Book Reviews, she has sold over 11 million copies of her books. She has been nominated three years in succession for the prestigious RITA© Award from the Romance Writers of America and won the award twice; in 2012 for her book ‘Doukakis’s Apprentice’ and 2013 for ‘A Night of No Return’. She also won the RT Reviewers’ Choice Award in 2012 and has made numerous appearances in their ‘Top Pick’ slot.
I’m pretty disappointed that the Harlequin promo materials left out Morgan’s appearance in the DABWAHA tournament. Maybe next year she’ll be in the Contemporary section of the tournament and not the category. Or maybe she’ll be a dual threat? You should read the book and tell us whether Sarah Morgan’s debut mass market knocked your socks off.
Once upon a time, Christmas was Kayla Green’s favorite time of year. Now all the workaholic wants for Christmas is for it to be over—as fast as possible! So when duty calls her to snowy Vermont to close a deal with a new client, Kayla is grateful for an excuse to avoid the holidays for another year.
Jackson O’Neil left a thriving business behind to return home and salvage his family’s resort—it’s in his blood, and he can’t let it fail. Now that he’s got marketing whiz Kayla Green working with him to put Snow Crystal on the map, success is on the horizon. The fact they strike enough sparks off each other to power all the Christmas lights in Vermont is just an added bonus.
Kayla might be an expert at her job, but she’s out of her depth with Jackson—he makes her crave the happy-ever-after she once dreamed of, and it’s terrifying. As the snowflakes continue to swirl, will the woman who doesn’t believe in the magic of Christmas finally fall under its spell?
