I Finally Made It

Okay, I've had this blog open for more than 6 months, but have just now decided to post my first blog! I mainly haven't blogged before, because I couldn't figure out how to do it...lol. So, this is a learning experience for me.

A lot of things have happened in the past few months--the main thing in my writing world is that I am the No. 1 best selling author at The Wild Rose Press. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm the best writer, just that I've sold more stories than anyone else. THE PRICELESS GIFT is holiday story that I really enjoyed writing. It has also gotten some very favorable reviews.

Here's the blurb:

The last thing Christina Scott expects Santa to bring her is a sexy—and very familiar—cowboy. Gavin Holloway’s just as shocked to discover she’s the woman he’s sent to pick up from the airport for a Christmas visit with her brother. They'd spent one hot week together months ago—a week where they both left their identities and individual problems behind. Neither ever expected a reunion.

Little do they know, Santa's elf has more than coal up his sleeve. Ho ho ho and a badgering we'll go before reindeer two-step on their rooftop and deliver THE PRICELESS GIFT that will leave their snowy days sizzling.

Here's a review:

The Priceless Gift, by Anna Kathryn Lanier
Reviewed by Jannine Corti Petska, REBEL HEART

Gavin Holloway has been burned by love before. So has Christina Scott. These love-lost souls find each other on a one week cruise in the Mediterranean. But mind-blowing sex wasn’t enough for either to reveal their real persona. At the end of the cruise, they went on their separate ways.

Six months later, with the meddling of Christina’s brother, who happens to be Gavin’s good friend, Gavin and Christina are reunited during the Christmas holiday in snowy Montana. Because of their deception on the cruise as well as their past experiences, each has trust issues. Even though they are more than compatible in bed, neither is willing to give in…until temptation could no longer hold them back. When Gavin learns the reason Christina is visiting her brother, her secret almost proves disastrous to their romance. Will love win over the emotional hurt each as suffered?

Ms. Lanier hooked me from the first sentence. Gavin is larger than life, sexy and hot. Christina is a perfect match for his don’t-mess-with-me character. I felt their emotions and passion and wished the story was a full-length novel. Ms. Lanier wove real life into her hero and heroine. I recommend The Priceless Gift to anyone who is a hopeless romantic and believes in a Happily Ever After.
