Welcome to my post for the Mistletoe Madness Blog Hop 2013! Here, you can win a copy of Masked Love. It's the perfect little novella to get you in the holiday spirit and put you in the mood to grab some mistletoe and kiss that someone special in your life.
Isabelle is content being a maid, and will do anything for her lady, even accompany her to a masquerade ball. Lady Theodosia needs extra support and encouragement on this night, for tomorrow she will meet the man her parents have pledged her to.
Isabelle has never had occasion to attend such an event, and is at first ill at ease. But meeting an enchanting young man during the course of the evening makes her wish for a life she can never have. Thinking she will never see him again, she returns his flirtation and even reveals her face. Imagine her shock when he shows up the next morning, announcing his claim on Lady Thedosia.
Isabelle does all she can to avoid Lord Adrian Wingave, but then he not only sees her, he recognizes her. To make matters worse, Isabelle fears her feelings are not one-sided.
Torn between duty and desire, Isabelle hopes for something more this Christmas.
To win, all you have to do is leave a comment telling me if you ever kissed someone under the mistletoe. Bonus entry if you add Masked Love to your TBR shelf on Goodreads. Double bonus points if you sign up for my newsletter.

Today I am excited to share the release of The Short Game, a novella by J.L. Fynn. It's a companion novella to her debut novel The Long Game, but it's completely stand-alone. That is, even if you haven't read the first book, you will enjoy this one.
And even more exciting than the book's release? All day today and tomorrow you can get it FOR FREE! Want to learn more?
Summary from Goodreads:
Jimmy Boy Reilly should be out on the road like the rest of his Irish-American Gypsy clan, but instead he’s stuck at home. His little brother Shay is up north pulling a long con, something Jimmy never wanted him involved in, and now all he can do is worry and wait.
But Shay isn’t the only thing on his mind this summer. He can’t seem to shake the image of the cute store clerk they swindled a few weeks back, and it’s really starting to get to him. When he decides to return the money in an effort to get her out of his mind, that small act of redemption soon turns into a date, and maybe something more.
Jimmy Boy never had any intention of falling for the country girl, cute or not, but there’s no way he could resist the beautiful, sassy blonde. Now it’s not just the fate of his little brother he’s worried about, but his own too. Hiding the relationship from his clan is hard enough, but keeping the fact that he’s an Irish Traveler from Tracy is even harder--and might cost him more in the end.
Set concurrently to J.L. Fynn’s debut novel The Long Game, The Short Game is a novella exploring what’s happening back at the Traveler Village while Shay is up north. While it could be considered a companion novel to The Long Game, it's a stand-alone story that can be enjoyed even without having read The Long Game.
Genre: New Adult Romantic Suspense
Word Count: 21,000 words
Release Date: December 17, 2013
