Hi everyone! Today’s event will be a bit different from the schedule as I’ll be doing another Book Day for His Holiday Wish. I was supposed to be doing another session of The Love Interviews, but that will be for tomorrow.
His Holiday Wish is my latest holiday book and is about a man who is trying to win back the love of his life before Christmas. It’s a sweet romantic story about knowing what true love is and never taking life for granted.
Here is the synopsis:
Dante Miller has always been a go-getter, and he has succeed in everything that his hands has touched, including his multimillion dollar sports company. After revamping his agency division, he needed some fresh faces to help bring in a newer clientele. During countless interviews, he wasn’t expecting for his college sweetheart, Ciara Britton, to come sashaying through the door. For Dante, Ciara was always unpredictable, but that was one of the things that he always loved about her.
As Dante appointed Ciara to the head of the division, he realized that she was the one who’d gotten away. He never wanted things to end with Ciara, but he cared more about starting his business, leading the two to move further apart. Now that he has a second chance with her, he’s not going to make the same mistake twice. He doesn’t want anything else for Christmas expect the love of his life back. Will his holiday wish come true?
Here’s the prologue from Dante’s POV. Enjoy!
My face slightly turned to the love of my life, not knowing what to expect once I looked into those beautiful brown eyes of hers. One thing that I never wanted to do was hurt her. I’d done it before with my selfishness, so I was trying hard not to do it again. As soon as I stared at her, I could see the sadness etched across her face. But, it was more than sadness; she was disappointed in me, which I knew then that there was no turning back to what just happened.
“If you let me explain-”
“Explain what, Dante? What can you possibly tell me that I don’t already know?”
A long-winded breath went through me, as I tried to figure out how to fix the shit that I’d just caused. But, she’s right; no matter what my explanation could be, she wasn’t going to hear it.
And I didn’t blame her if she didn’t.
“I thought things would have been different between us, but I should have known that you would do this to me once again. I can’t compete with your career, Dante. I never could.”
“Baby, please, just let us talk about this,” I said.
I tried to go to her, but she moved away from me. I looked around the room, seeing the surprised looks on my guests’ faces, wishing we could have had this conversation privately, but the incident happened so quickly.
“I can’t keep doing this with you, Dante. I can’t keep having my heart broken.”
“It’s over, Dante. I’m done.” She turned around and headed to the exit.
I tried to follow her, but I was held back by one of my clients.
“Get out of my way.”
“She doesn’t want to talk to you.”
“Move the hell out of my way,” I demanded, shoving him towards the dessert table. I guess I pushed him too far because he collided with the pastries and landed on the three tiered chocolate soufflé. Damn, I was looking forward to trying that.
I ran towards the exit, nearly bumping into several guests as I tried to go to the door. By the time I reached outside, Ciara was already in her car and was leaving the parking lot, her tires screeching as she approached the street. I watched her leave, realizing that this was the second time I had let her slip away from me. And this time, she probably won’t come back to me.
And I only have myself to blame…
His Holiday Wish is available only on Amazon. If you do have Kindle Unlimited, you can download the book to read for free.
