#Giveaway #HoHoHoHarlequinHolidayExtravaganza Christine Rimmer Same Time Next Christmas

Christine Rimmer is a Special Edition author that I have enjoyed for years and whether she's writing about cowboys or Royals I know it's a story that I will love. This year her holiday tale is part of her prolific Bravo family, Same Time, Next Christmas. 
Christine's post is about her new Christmas story and she is sponsoring a giveaway details below.

They’re each other’s Christmas present.

But what about the other 364 days?

Ex-soldier Matthias Bravo likes spending the holidays hunkered down in his remote Oregon cabin. Until Sabra Bond seeks refuge from a winter storm. Now they meet every year for a no-strings Yuletide romance. But Matthias is changing the rules. This Bravo bachelor finally knows what he wants—Sabra forever. Is she ready to commit to love not just at Christmas but every day of the year?

Christine's Message:

Christmas greetings, everyone! 
Every year for a long time now, I’ve been contributing a new Christmas romance to Harlequin Special Edition.   I love creating a holiday love story.  Each time, I try to come up with a tale that will satisfy my readers, thrill my romance-loving heart and challenge the writer in me—in a holiday setting, of course, and full of that special magic that only the Christmas season brings.
Usually, in a Special Edition, the story is tight and sharply focused, the timeframe short, covering days, weeks or maybe months.  This year, I decided to write a love story that spans four years and five Christmases. 
In Same Time, Next Christmas, Matthias Bravo and Sabra Bond meet for ten days every Christmas.  And then they walk away—until next year.  And the year after that.  In four years, two people can live through a lot of changes, especially two people who start out agreeing that neither is ready for love, that right now, at Christmas, is all they can give each other.  In a way, Same Time, Next Christmas is about two people struggling to get on the same page with each other, to find that special moment when they’re both ready for love at the same time. 
I hope this season of love brings you together with the ones who mean the most to you and that your New Year brings you joy, peace, success—and fabulous reading.
