Happy Holidays, everyone! It’s wonderful to be here at the Annual December Joyathon. Thank you, Jamie and Kati, for asking me to join the festivities.

Favorite winter activities…hmm, that’s a tricky one for me. Most of the year, I live in Ottawa, Canada. Ottawa has VERY cold winters, and I have to confess that I’m not much of a winter person. Cold weather usually finds me hunkered down under a blanket with a good book and a cup of tea, or cooking something comforting for dinner.

But here’s the thing—hubby and I now spend most of the winter in Florida, so we totally life-hack that cold weather thing. Now our favorite activities are walking on the beach, sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch and reading, and hanging out at the local frozen yogurt joint with my 93 year old father. We do get more traditional around the holidays, for sure. We put up the tree, bake cookies, and decorate the house. And then there’s the Christmas shopping, so much easier thanks to the beauty of on-line ordering.

I doubt we’ll spend winters in Florida forever, but for now we appreciate the change!

Do you spend winter in warmer climes, or do something different from the usual cold-weather activities? Tell me about it, and one reader will win a copy of my latest book, MY FAIR PRINCESS, and my previous book, HOW TO MARRY A ROYAL HIGHLANDER (U.S. and Canada only).

After recovering from a life-threatening illness, Miss Georgie Gage can’t convince her family that she’s healthy and ready to enjoy life again. Instead, they treat her like a delicate invalid who must be protected from, well, everything! Georgie has kept herself entertained by promoting love matches among her friends, but she longs for a happily ever after of her own.

And find love under the mistletoe…
Highlander Fergus Haddon has worked himself to the bone to make up for the horrible scandal that almost destroyed his loved ones. But when his family insists he take a holiday in the south of England, Fergus can’t think of a drearier way to celebrate Christmas. Even worse, they want him to find an English wife! Fergus is dead set against it—until he meets pretty Georgie Gage. Suddenly, he can think of nothing but catching Georgie under the mistletoe, but how will the Gages react when they learn of his scandalous past?
