Evernight Publishing Holiday Blog Hop, Prizes galore!

Welcome to the Evernight Holiday Blog Hop!
We love the holidays, we love making our readers happy and we love giving away swag. What better way to do that than to hold a blog hop?

Here's how it works... the more blogs you hop to (shown below) the more chance you have of winning prizes. Each site on the hop is offering a prize and Evernight is offering an iPad 2 as the grand prize! To be in with a chance of winning the site prize simply follow the blog you're visiting and leave a comment which includes your email address. Each entry on each blog is then counted towards the grand prize draw. The more entries you have, the better your chance of winning that iPad 2! You also get extra points for liking the Evernight Facebook page!/evernightpublishing. Just make sure you let us know in the comments that you've done so.
Happy hopping!

Leave a comment below and you might win a copy of The Bride's Journey, one of my historical romance's through Evernight Publishing. Here is a snippet of it for your enjoyment.

The Bride’s Journey
Bereft of his heat, Abby shivered slightly staring at the door.  What must he think of me now. I am nothing but a wanton woman, pushing myself on a man who doesn't know me.  Oh my, what things he made my body feel, I wanted to burn with it, yet there must be more to it than what I was feeling.  But what more could there be?                                  
Abby entered her room, locking the door she leaned up against it and sighed. Her heart was still fluttering so she took a couple of deep breaths trying to calm her thoughts. The bed seemed to call her name, her lids getting heavy as she made her way across the room. Maybe a good night’s rest will clear these ridiculous notions from my head.              
She removed her robe, draped it over the end of the bed and climbed beneath the sheets. Her night rail proved too warm, sighing she got out of bed and removed it.  Abby placed it on the end of the bed with her wrapper and slipped under the covers, the cool linen luxurious against her soft skin. She snuggled into the down feather mattress and took a deep breath. I can almost smell him. My friends were right, men have a most fascinating smell. The pillow she had laid her head on smelled lightly of lavender, and her hands smelled of Benjamin, smiling, she slipped into a restless sleep filled with dreams.
His hand reached for her, tipping her face up for his kiss.  Abby molded herself to his body, melding them into one being. She wrapped her arms around his neck, arching her back begging for more.  Benjamin picked her up, carrying her to the bed, deepening the kiss, eliciting small moans from the back of her throat.  Never breaking the kiss, he laid them down stroking her body freely. Tweaking one nipple in his fingers, his lips left her mouth, blazing a white hot trail down her neck to the other nipple. Sucking it into his mouth he suckled there and was rewarded when she threw her head back catching her breath.  Smiling, he chanced a glance at her face before letting her nipple go to kiss her ribs and stomach.  Abby was wriggling upon the sheets when his mouth took possession of her most private parts.  Benjamin slid his tongue through the golden brown curls hiding her treasure and found the hard little nub that would bring her the greatest pleasure known to womanhood. He lightly nipped the rosy bud before delving deeper into her, stroking his tongue up and down her moist slit.  One hand stroked her while his tongue journeyed in and out of her shaft, the other hand never having left the nipple he played with.                                                      
Abby moaned loud enough to have awakened herself. She was breathing heavily while one hand was stroking a hardened nipple and the other was between her legs, soaking wet.  Jerking up in bed, she brought her hands out from under the blankets as her body, hot and sweating, shaking.  Oh my, what on earth was all that? A quick glance about the room proved she was alone; Benjamin wasn’t there. Gasping, she collapsed upon the pillow, her cheeks pink and covered herself completely before finally slipping into a restful sleep.

The Bride's Journey is available now for purchase from Evernight Pulishing and Good Luck.
