My mother wants all her kids and grandkids to spend Christmas Eve at her house and wake up on Christmas morning together.

Sounds reasonable, right?

And it would be.

If it weren’t my mother.

My husband, Declan, is protesting any involvement, though he’s openly intrigued by the idea of claiming his territory by suggesting we have sex in my childhood bed.

And by ‘suggest,’ I mean make a series of really hot offers that make me whimper when I have to say no.

Wait – why am I saying no again?

Mom has turned her house into a Christmas showcase that makes Frankenmuth look like the picked-over clearance rack at Target on December 26. You know those crazy people on Etsy who make felted gnomes out of belly button lint and use … a certain kind of hair… to make thatched roofs on little decorative elf homes?

Those people are saner than my mother.

There is no force of nature stronger — and more emotionally volatile — than a fifty-something grandmother determined to create holiday memories.

Wait a minute. Maybe there is.

My husband.

wishes-in-a-bottle-e-readerWISHES IN A BOTTLE ~ COMING JANUARY 15!

Centuries ago in plague-struck Italy, Julian DiConti cast a powerful spell in desperation to have the magical power to be able to help his people who were dying in horrific conditions. The spell goes spectacularly awry, leaving Julian enslaved to a Djinn bottle, bound to grant three wishes to each Master of the bottle until the spell can be broken. More than anything, Julian longs for a normal life – for a home, and a family. After six hundred years, however, he has begun to despair of ever being freed from the spell.

Enter Alessandra Taylor, a young woman who has followed her calling to help others, in the face of vociferous disapproval from her family, particularly her controlling father. Working at a shelter for battered women, she’s thrilled to meet the reclusive Julian DiConti, whose collection of garments from third world countries has provided funding for shelters across the country. When Julian turns out to be a Djinn from the old bottle she found in her attic, she hears his story and empathizes with his despair. Although she’s willing to free him, he can’t tell her how. As time goes by, their initial attraction blossoms into a love that both realize is doomed. Once she has made her third wish, the magic of the bottle will whisk Julian away and out of her life forever… unless she can somehow figure out how to free him. But one by one, she’s forced to use the precious wishes to help others.

Bodyguard.

Escort.

Bad boy.

I didn’t come from the wrong side of the tracks. I was the wrong side. Every cliché you could think of, my family embraced. The only advantage I had was being the best-looking out of all my brothers. Except when I joined the Marines, looks didn’t count for shit downrange.

I wasn’t active duty anymore, and working for the best personal security firm in the business, my looks were getting me in more trouble than they were worth. I just didn’t realize how much trouble until a princess from a country I’d never heard of asked for me by name. Her request was simple—me, my gun, and an art opening. But she recklessly failed to mention one crucial part of the assignment… pretend to be her new fiancé.

Now she was about to find out how reckless a bodyguard could be.

A NOTE FROM JERRI

For years, I have wanted to write a Christmas romance. Unfortunately, I have never squeezed a Christmas novel into my schedule. I didn’t want this year to pass without something I could offer my fans.

This year—for only the Christmas season—I am offering three of my books for a bargain. Now it is FREE until Thursday!!!

Fragmented, the first book of Boston’s Crimes of Passion series, is a stand-alone romantic suspense.
Past of Shadows, the first book of The Three Realms, is a high fantasy series. This is an ongoing series.
Belle of Charleston, the first book of Southern Legacy, is a serial historical romance. This is a serial! The books have cliffhangers. Do not begin if you don’t want to become addicted to the series! Southern Legacy consists of four books–Belle of Charleston, Shadows of Magnolia, Born to Be Brothers and The Sun Will Rise.

I couldn’t be more excited about introducing you to my different genre series. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

I am, also, thrilled to announce I am releasing a new series, Scream for the Camera, Book One in Boston’s Crimes of Horror. You can preorder at this link:
