TALA FLORES WAS excited for Christmas with her fiancé and his daughter. She didn't expect to find herself single before December rolled around.
Rather than spend the holiday with her parents or, worse, with her brother and his growing family, Tala decides that this year she's going to spend Christmas alone. Her flat holds too many reminders that she's nearly thirty and alone for the first time in two years, so she leaves it behind with the vow to treat herself to a break from reality. After all, what could be a better way to get over heartbreak than a week of solitude in a remote Scottish cabin?
Perhaps a one night stand with a man in a Santa hat and a tinsel scarf.
It's a one time thing, Tala tells herself, a lapse of judgement. But it's not one she can escape. When a blizzard snows them in, Tala finds herself forced to address the man in her bed — and everything she's been suppressing for two months. It's far from the Christmas she planned, but it just might not be as blue as she thought.
welcome to 2017's christmas novella! i hope to make this an annual tradition. last year we had cosy christmas; this year, blue christmas! this story will begin once i have finished writing turning point, a total break from the dark mystery of my werewolf series! and i am very excited that this story is set in 2017 after several 'futuristic' farnleigh works.
if you're thinking that the name 'flores' sounds familiar ... well, you'd be right!
