About Writing

A Big Entrance (A Silver Dagger Tour Post)

Today I want you to meet V. J. Allison and her recent story “Sweet Child Of Mine.” She had a lot of great books, don’t get me wrong–and I’ll let her tell you about them in a minute–but this story is close to my heart because I got a chance to see the proverbial sausage making behind this excellent little tale . (Didn’t you know? Authors talk to each other about what they’re writing and share all the nuts and bolts of their works. It’s good stuff.)

Yes, this is a Christmas book, but it’s also just a great story, so buy it and read it and enjoy it as much as I did. What’s it about?

It’s Christmas Eve. 

Ewan and Marti Campbell are hoping to have a quiet holiday season, their first as a married couple, and the last one before their new baby arrives.

A crisis at the real estate agency tosses a huge wrench into their plans, as does the sudden onset of Marti’s labour. As Ewan fights to get home before his child appears, more crises are flung at him. If he is to make it on time to help his wife bring their baby into the world, he’ll need a miracle…

A big one.

Under Your Scars

Tri-Town Book 2 

by V.J. Allison 

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Alexis has that special something about her that Seth can’t fathom. His friend Mirabelle’s new employee is even prettier than the merchandise she sells. Too bad she’s distantly polite when he tries talking to her.

Alexis is attracted to Seth, but she’s in hiding from her past and her mistakes. Getting involved with the one person she’s attracted to could blow her cover.

When they’re forced to work together, their libidos ignite. Alexis is terrified to open up and give in to her feelings for Seth. If he remembers that night five years ago, he’ll never speak to her again.

It becomes a question of whether Seth will expose her and force her to keep running, or if he’ll help her face her past.
