All I Want for Christmas is...
Time. Time to spend with friends and family, catching up on old times and new. Pot luck dinners and cocktail parties with colleagues and friends.
Time to take a friend to lunch, swap stories about our kids, and eat a meal I didn't have to cook.
Time to attend my kids school party and make paper ring garlands for them to count off the days until Christmas.
It used to be I loved Christmas for all the wonderful presents I'd received. The anticipation of seeing the packages stacked under the tree and counting how many were for me. Now, it's the time I spend with family and friends that brings me the most joy. Those moments I treasure with my little girl and my boys, making memories that last far longer than the excitement of a new gift.
I want Christmas carols and cookies I baked with my kids. I want wrapping paper littering the floor and dishes piled in the sink because we're all too busy having fun and talking to care. I want my family surrounding me around the dinner table, sharing a good meal and great laughs.
I want my kids tucked in bed, exhausted from all the fun, and that moment my husband and I fall into bed exhausted, knowing it wasn't the presents our kids will remember, but the memories and traditions we created that they'll hold onto and share with their own kids.
My fans would probably say the next book in my series.
All I Want for Christmas is a Cowboy, including Can't Wait
Before The Hunted Series began, Summer and Caleb shared a whirlwind romance.
Though she is the woman of his dreams, Caleb Bowden knows his best friend's sister, Summer Turner, is off limits. He won't cross that line, which means Summer will just have to take the reins if she wants her cowboy for Christmas.
What do you want for Christmas this year? Leave a comment and I'll pick four lucky winners to receive a free digital copy of All I Want For Christmas Is A Cowboy.

Her obsession with both is often revealed in the state of her home, and how late dinner is to the table.
