Let It Snow Books: Guest post by Robin Bielman + Giveaway


Ever since I read Yours at Midnight and discovered Robin Bielman she has been one of my favourite authors. Her stories are always heartfelt, romantic, heartwarming and funny. So it goes without saying that she just HAD to be included in this event's guests. Please give it up for Robin and get to meet Luke and Shane, tow of her swoon-worthy heroes! ;-) 

Hi everyone! *waves and tosses mistletoe so, you know, you can hang it in a strategic spot and kiss that special someone* Happy Holidays! I am so happy to be here to celebrate this festive time of year with you! This is one of my favorite places to visit. Big hugs and thanks to Stella and Anna for including me!

Or rather, us! I brought along a couple of guys with me today. I hope you don’t mind. They insisted on joining me when I told them where I was headed. This is Shane Sullivan on my left and Luke Watters on my right. They’re best friends and now brothers-in-law, too, and the heroes in my Secret Wishes series books. (And can I just say; I’m quite comfortable sandwiched between them.)

So we are totally going to turn this Friday the 13th on it’s lucky head and Shane and Luke are going to answer all of my holiday questions. They told me I could ask them anything. Here goes…

Me: I’ll start with you Luke, cookies or fruitcake?

Luke: You did not just ask me that.

Me: I did.

Luke: Cookies, Robin. Cook-ies. You’re baking Sela and me a batch of your gooey bars, right?

Me: Absolutely. (I pretty much can’t say no to him.) Shane, would you rather have a nose that glows red like Rudolph’s or have pointy ears like an elf?

Luke yanks on his ear. They’re already sort of pointy.

Shane bats Luke’s hand away. Dude, lay off the ears. Or should I bring up—

Luke: Don’t even think about it.

Shane smiles and I go a little melty.

Shane: I’ll go with the elf.

Me: Luke, would you rather have Christmas tree tinsel for hair or have fingernails that light up like Christmas lights?

Shane crosses his arms and raises his eyebrows.

Luke: I’ll take the tinsel hair.

Shane: I can see it.

Me: Shane, what’s your favorite holiday song?

Shane: I’m partial to a little “Jingle Bell Rock.”

Me: Hey, can either of you sing?

Luke: Shane does. He’s not bad. Didn’t you do chorus in high school?

Shane: That was elementary school. High school was all about babes and baseball.

Luke: He did sing in the dugout on occasion.

Shane: I did, didn’t I?

Me: Luke, you’re stranded on a deserted island for Christmas. What three things would you need with you?

Luke: Sela, suntan lotion, my camera.

Me: How about you Shane?

Shane: Kagan, candles and matches, champagne.

Me: Aw, that sounds so romantic.

Shane smirks.

Luke: How about you, Robin?

Me: Oh, um, my hubby and two boys. Although, on second thought, how about my hubby, some books, and a bartender. ;) My hubby is really good with his hands so he could build us a shelter and catch us food.


Shane: I’m betting he can do a few other things, too.

I blush.

Me: Okay, moving on. Shane, what was the best present you’ve ever received?

Shane: I don’t think I can share that here in mixed company. He winks.

I roll my eyes.

Me: Luke, do you have a favorite holiday movie?

Luke: I’d say Christmas Vacation or Elf.

Me: I love those movies! Okay last question for both of you. Santa hat or reindeer antlers?

Luke/Shane: Santa hat!

Me: Okay everyone, so Luke and Shane said they’d be around to answer any questions you might have. Or you can ask me anything. Or feel free to just leave any holiday comment! One lucky commenter is going to win a $10 gift card to the online store of his or her choice! Good luck and thanks for being here with us!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

P.S. The recipe for my gooey bars – which are really yummy! – is on my blog right now!

Robin Bielman lives in Southern California with her high school sweetheart husband, two sons, and crazy-cute mini Labradoodle, Harry (named after Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher's Dresden Files books). When not attached to her laptop, she can almost always be found with her nose in a book. She also likes to run, hike, and dip her toes in the ocean. Filled with wanderlust, she longs to visit many different places and fulfill her curiosity. She wouldn’t mind indulging her sweet tooth in every location either. She’s a lover of Post-it notes, cable television shows and café mochas. Writing is a dream come true, and she still pinches herself to be sure it’s real.
 

She writes contemporary romance for Entangled Publishing. Her Secret Wishes series includes Kissing the Maid of Honor, Her Accidental Boyfriend, and coming in April, Wild About Her Wingman. Her other novels include Worth the Risk, Risky Surrender and Yours At Midnight. In July 2014 her first single title paranormal romance, Veiled Target, will be released from Samhain Publishing. She loves to connect with readers.

Kissing the Maid of Honor by Robin Bielman

Book #1 in the Secret Wishes series

Kissing her best friend's brother never felt so right...

Sela Sullivan is resolved to be the best maid of honor ever, even if it means tolerating the best man. Insufferable, too-handsome Luke Watters is not only the guy who humiliated her at a kissing booth in high school, but he also happens to be her best friend’s older brother. Positive he’s the same arrogant jock, Sela vows to focus on her duties and steer clear of the frustrating—and frustratingly tempting—Luke.

As a world-renowned extreme-sports photographer, Luke is used to undertaking life-risking adventures. But risking his heart for the beautiful Sela Sullivan, who clearly still hates him for his rejection all those years ago? He didn’t see that coming. Sela inspires a passion he’s never known, and the more time they spend together, the more he craves her. But can he prove to the maid of honor he’s become a man of honor?

Her Accidental Boyfriend by Robin Bielman

Book #2 in the Secret Wishes series

Faking it with this flirt never felt so real...

Kagan Owens has a secret. One she thought she’d escaped by leaving New York, but when her past follows her to her temporary new life, Kagan lets a teeny lie slip. And now the town’s biggest playboy and flirt, Shane Sullivan, has become her pretend boyfriend—just until she’s ready to return to NYC. But the handsome, fun-loving Shane makes it tough to determine where their friendly agreement begins and ends…

Shane has no intention of settling down—in fact, his job depends on it, and nothing’s more important than his work. Still, he can’t help but agree to Kagan’s scheme, if only to find out more about the mysterious beauty. But when every touch from her sets his heart and body on fire, he realizes playing an accidental boyfriend may be more than he bargained for—and more than he can give.
