Happy Tuesday, Readers! It’s the Christmas Season, and I’m delighted to welcme back friend and fellow author Harmony Kent here today talking about her brand-new release, Oh Baubles. I love a good Christmas story as well as romance, and this book contains both elements. Let’s welcome Harmony!
Hi everyone, Harmony here. I’m so thrilled to be visiting with Joan today to tell you about my latest book, a Christmas Romance Novella. It’s a fun, quick read at around 80 pages, and I had fun crafting this one. Below is a ‘sneek peek’ from Chapter 3 of ‘Oh Baubles.’
From the corner of her eye, she noticed John Andrews come onto the ward, and her cheeks immediately flamed crimson. His good-god good-looks overwhelmed her and ignited feelings she’d rather not have, not with her husband dead because of her.
Her sister noticed. Of course she did. Emily raised her eyebrows and waggled them at Charlene. ‘So, who’s the hottie, then?’ She winked at her sister. ‘Ooh, I remember him. He’s the physio that worked with you back along.’
Charlene rolled her eyes. ‘I’m his patient,’ she hissed from the side of her mouth.
Emily giggled. ‘I’ll bet he knows how to make a woman feel all better.’
Despite herself, Charlene laughed and slapped her sister’s wrist. ‘Shut up.’
John walked down the ward, studying his clipboard with intent. Emily grew nervous when he neared her bed. She would be his first patient of the morning. So far, he hadn’t looked at them. Then he did. His mouth fell open. God, but she must look a mess. Then he recovered himself and extended a hand to Emily, who took it and shook it.
‘Hi, I’m John Andrews, Charlene’s physio.’
Huh, talk about ignoring her. And what had that look been on his face? She wanted to slide beneath the covers and hide until he’d gone away again.
Her sister giggled. ‘Isn’t Charlie the lucky one?’
Charlene blurted out, ‘I don’t know about that.’
The three of them froze. Then John cleared his throat and smiled at her. It appeared forced. ‘Right then, Miss Matthers, let’s get you mobile shall we?’ He glanced around.
I hope you enjoyed this little excerpt. Below is the book description and then a bit about ‘the author’ for those of you who don’t yet know me.
After a tragic accident one Christmas, Charlene loses her husband and her leg.
Scarred and damaged, the losses leave her lost and reeling, and a long recovery lies ahead of her.
When John, a hot young physiotherapist, comes into her life with his ripped abs and good-god good-looks, she can’t imagine he’d give somebody like her a second glance.
Then she falls for him.
Can Charlene overcome all obstacles to gain back her life and find true love once more?
Find out in this fun-filled, clean Christmas romance novella from award-winning author Harmony Kent.
