Author guest post: J.J. Nite

What do I want for Christmas? It seems such a simple question when you’re young. I remember looking endlessly at catalogs and making a list, never sure what might show up under the tree on Christmas morning. The things you want change as you get older, the gifts bigger. Then you get married and have children and it’s no longer about what you want for Christmas, but more about what you want for your family. You want them to see and experience the spirit of the season. You want them to understand it’s more about giving than receiving and you teach them the true meaning of Christmas. Because no matter how much money any of us spend, and sometimes it’s far more than we planned, we can’t forget about the very first gift. So, even though I truly want health and happiness for my family, I also want them to keep in the forefront of their minds the reason we have Christmas. That tiny baby born so long ago who would change our world and ultimately provide each of us a way to spend eternity with our families.


Merry Christmas!!


Christmas book – His Christmas Bride by J.J. Nite



Hugh Alexander, Earl of Kerry, returned from the war physically and emotionally scarred. He is determined to never set foot inside of a ballroom again, convinced that no one would want him anyway. Hugh isolates himself and says it is only until he heals, and then he meets Annabelle. She doesn’t appear to be effected by his appearance and is quite beautiful. If only she wasn’t a maid in his household.

Annabelle has lived and worked in the Earl’s townhouse her whole life. She knows nothing about her family and since her mother’s passing ten years earlier, has no one to ask about them. Annabelle unwittingly helps Hugh find his will to recover and encourages him to open himself up to his family again. While she doesn’t yearn for anything more, there is a secret that, if brought to light, could destroy everything she knows to be true.

Can the new friendship and budding feelings Annabelle and Hugh have for one another be enough to overcome an uncertain future? Or will they be forever lost to each other?
