Jingle Balls


Welcome to my portion of the Jingle Balls Giveaway Blog Hop. Yes, I know. OMG, another one! What can I say. I love to participate. As I sit here and get ready to post this blog, I find my mind blank. I’m so busy glancing at the very sexy Mel Gibson, Lethal Weapon 3, that I’m distracted. Then there’s the picture above. Talk about a way to mess with a girl’s mind! There’s nothing better on a cold winter night(though it’s probably a lot colder for some of my readers than it is here in West Tennessee) than a hot sexy man. Even better, sex with a hot, sexy man.

This Christmas, why not indulge your inner sexuality with a new book. Thanks to Madame D’s Boudoir and Satin’s Bookish Corner, you have tons of chances to win great prizes. Some examples include free books-such as what I’m offering, bookmarks, and other great swag. The entering process is pretty easy though it varies for each blog. So what are you waiting for? Go visit.

Heart Over Mind Blurb:

A Life Changed Forever
Nala Arpaia, psychiatrist, lives a boring, routine life…until her knight in tight blue jeans comes to whisk her off to a family castle full of fabled creatures. It’s like something out of a book, all the way down to the life or death situation she finds herself in. As the last member of the most powerful blood line to ever exist, Nala is now the final mark of Broncestan Milivak, who’s goal is world domination.

Nala has to master her powers if she wants to save the free world. All she really wants…is her protector Gabriel.

Stubborn to the Core
Gabriel Ricardo’s job as head Graida, a magical bodyguard, is his life. He eats, breaths and sleeps work. When his boss, head Elder Elam Korbin gives Gabriel the task of retrieving his niece, Nala, Gabriel’s all business. Until, he meets the psychiatrist. Things go down hill from there. This case isn’t like any other. Illusions, magic, and attempted kidnap he can handle. The presence of the strong, and irresistible attraction he feels for the doctor he can’t. As things get dangerous, Gabriel has to force his mind to focus on the case, and not the lust burning him alive.

Unable to Resist…
As Broncestan’s attacks get stronger, and more dangerous, Nala finds it more important than ever to experience the kind of relationship she’d always wanted, but never had. Seeing Nala suffer at the hands of a power-hungry Damned soul, Gabriel realizes keeping his distance isn’t working. Soon, they give in to the passion and proclaim their love. Just when things are supposed to work out, things hit rock bottom again.

Their Future Looms in the Balance…
Will they ever be able to defeat Broncestan and enjoy a relationship together or are they doomed to live their lives alone and miserable?


“I love you Nala.”

She looked up at him and knew he meant it.

“And I love you. Will you make me yours now?”

Reaching down, he spread her legs and slipped one finger inside. “God, you’re so wet.”

Nala begin to squirm as he sped up his ministrations. Pressure built as he pleasured her. She tried to stop him but he pushed her hands away.

“Let go.”

She surrendered to the feelings. A scream exploded from her throat as she climaxed. When she came down, she noticed Gabriel looking down at her.

“That was great.”

Gabriel gave her a feral grin. “That’s nothing compared to what’s next.”

He slid into her, letting her adjust before going deeper. He groaned in ecstasy as he moved in and out, gaining speed but holding back so he would not hurt her. Nala gasped and sobbed at the feelings he evoked. She went higher with every thrust and was just about to fall over the edge when Gabriel stopped. Nala followed her instincts and moved her hips, rocking against him.

“Nala, you have to stop.”

She heard the strained words and felt the strength of his hands at her waist, but kept going.

“In a minute.”

She could feel it building. Her breath came in pants as the first ripples started.

“Open your eyes.”

She obeyed his command. Her eyelids felt heavy as she forced them to open against the pleasure. When Gabriel started to glow a pale white, Nala gasped. She looked at her own hands in surprise. She was glowing too.

“Gabriel, what’s happening?”

He smiled. “It’s the mating ritual I told you about. Look over there.”

Nala followed the sound of increasing mumbles. A group of see-through figures hovered over the floor, staring right at them as they spoke in a strange language. They started to move closer. Nala squirmed to get out from underneath Gabriel.

“Let me up. I don’t want anyone seeing us.”

Gabriel held her under him with a tender kiss. “Don’t worry. They don’t see. They just sense when a mating ritual is occurring and appear to bless the union. Once they’re done, they disappear.”

    CJ Hollenbach makes my heart race, and I forget how to speak. My jaw hits the floor and I swoon at his picture. Meeting him person is beyond words.
    He makes me stutter. I felt so stupid that I couldn’t even say hi to him.
    I don’t have a face book page so I can’t “like” you.
