What's your Christmas Wish this year?

Christmas Wishes Blog Hop is sponsored by Book & Trailer Showcase (BTS Virtual Book Tours), Coffee Beans & Love scenes (CBLS Promotions), and Full Moon Bites (FMB Blog Tours). There are lots and lots of prizes to be had, including a grand prize of a Kindle Paperwhite, a Nook Glow, and a $90 choice gift card for either Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Both Tablets will come with a book bundle! Gift certificates, books and swag will also be given away. The more stops you hop to, the more chances to win something. Be sure to go to the main site to put your name in the Rafflecopter, as that’s where the grand prize drawing will originate.

I have three children serving in the MIlitary now so my Christmas Wish is for all of them to have a safe holiday.

I will be giving away a $10.00 Amazon gift card to one commentor, so tell me what your Christmas wish is this year.

Rescued from the Dark
Release date- February 16, 2013 Through Black Opal Books.

An explosion ricocheted behind Jason’s eyes as the pressure mounted in his head.
The rush of panic consumed Jason Michaels as he struggled to move. He tried to
swallow but his throat burned from the flames that engulfed his lungs. He needed to
breathe but he could not, shit.
He strained to hear the muffled voices, but the pounding in his ears
erased all hope. His head started to spin and he succumbed to the realization,
this was it, the end, he won. The flames were dampened and his
heartbeat slowed. As the drums subsided, the voices became clearer.
“Give it to him now you son of a bitch. What were you thinking? We still need him.”

A split second release had Jason sucking in a breath of much needed air.
Stabbing pains shot through his head and every muscle fiber burned as the cold
blast of air shot through his lungs releasing the oxygen his body craved.
He arched his back and raised his chest trying to pull in more when he felt the
impact from the first blow. His head
snapped to the side and the crack from his neck echoed in his ears. The pain
jolted through his jaw as it raced across his cheekbone. Before he could gather
his senses, the hand smacked across his face again and the pain set his face on
fire. What the hell? With the third slap his eyes snapped open and he
wrenched upright with a lurch, hitting his head on the solid roof of the SUV.
Jason’s eyes darted back and forth looking for something familiar until he
locked onto the ice-cold stare of the devil himself, Shaun Flanagan.
Damn! That was close.
He could not blow his cover, even if it meant he would die as David Logan, and not
Jason Michaels. .
