A Free Book and a Thank-You Note – 12/20/17

A Note of Thanks

Last week, I told y’all that my husband’s knee had been cut into, in an attempt to fix some knee problems that he’s had since he was a small child. I won’t lie; it’s been a rough week. He’s still in a lot of pain, and it might end up interfering with our Christmas plans. Not the best way to spend our Christmas, that’s for sure.

But anyway, I was sitting here, writing away in Flames of Love, when Reagan tells me that he wants me to check my email. Hmmm…okay. Weird, but all right.

What I found is below. I didn’t proofread it or change one word of it. I did, however, cry when I read it.

Here’s an adorable picture of Jasmine the Healing Cat snuggling up to Handsome Hubby that I took this morning, to accompany the note:

Jasmine the Healing Cat with Reagan Wright

Dear Faithful and Enthusiastic Erin Wright Reader,

I am breaking into this newsletter for just a moment to introduce myself and to say thank you.

I am Reagan or as some of you might know “Mr. Erin”. Whilst I don’t normally interject myself into her newsletter Erin has been telling you about my recent knee surgery. I am sure it is mostly because she needs someone to vent to. Thank you for being her shoulder.

She has also read to me some of the wonderfully thoughtful responses many of you have sent wishing me well and advising Erin on how to keep her sanity while playing Florence Nightingale. My personal favorite was the reader email that said “either he needs to take the heavy-duty medication or you do to get through this,” (or something to that effect). Truly sage advice that rings of real-life experience.

Each and every one of you that has taken the time to email have been so gracious and caring about wishing me well and supporting Erin that I had to break in here and say thank you.

Recently our mailbox started filling up with Christmas cards, hand written and some even hand-crafted. I can tell you that it means so much to her. But, I wanted to share a husband-secret. The kind of support y’all show through emails, cards, leaving ARC reviews and buying her books means a lot to me too. Here is why; I think my wife is insanely talented. She is funny, caring and has a good grasp on English grammar, all of which she pours into her books. I try to tell her how wonderful she is but sometimes that message need reenforcing from outside. She will give me that look that plainly says “You have to say that, you’re married to me,” but when you guys back me up it makes the affirmation real.

Thank you for helping me out.

Again thank you for the well-wishes, great advice and support

Happy Holidays

Reagan

Did I mention that I cried when I read his letter? I just teared up a little again just now, rereading it, just as I’ve been tearing up as I’ve read through the Christmas letters that I’ve received from y’all. It really does mean so much to me.

Okay, enough weepy emotions for now. Last week, I told y’all about a giveaway I was running on Facebook, where you could win a set of hand-forged metal icicles and two copies of the Blizzard of Love, just by sharing a post and also telling me what you’d do with the second copy of Blizzard. I’m happy to report that Nancy L won and has already given me her mailing address. Enjoy the package, Nancy!

Now for a free book! ?  My good friend, J.H. Croix, has written a real winner, set up in Alaska. Her book is free on ALL storefronts, so no matter which ereader you use, you’ll be able to find a link below to download it. I really hope you enjoy the book. ❤️

If I don’t have a chance to chat with you personally beforehand, I also hope that you have a wonderful and loving Christmas with your family and friends. ? ?

Big hugs and love,

Erin

When Love Comes by J.H. Croix

sexy small town romance in Alaska

A steamy, full-length, standalone romance with a guaranteed HEA from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix! If you like smoking hot romance with alpha men and strong women, you’ll love this series!

In this captivating love story set against the stark beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, Hannah Gray returns to her hometown after the death of her parents. Once wild and impulsive, she shut her heart off to love and adventure after her parents died. When she meets Luke Winters, their immediate attraction is overwhelming.

Burned once before, Luke has committed himself to nothing but casual dalliances with women. Rugged and sexy, he finds no shortage of women happy to oblige. When Hannah comes along, he questions what he might be missing. Both fight the depth of their feelings–love is not part of the plan.

Hannah’s sense of identity is shaken when she unearths a surprising truth about her family. Meanwhile, Luke’s interfering family and complications from his past challenge Hannah and Luke to face their true feelings for each other.

Can two people who don’t believe love is worth the risk find the courage to face their fears and open their hearts?

NOTE: All novels in this series are full-length standalone novels with an HEA.

FREE on all storefronts!

Jasmine the Healing Cat – 12/15/17

It’s Not Wednesday

I’m pointing that out because lately (re: the last couple of weeks), I’ve been horrific about actually sending my email out on Wednesday like I’m supposed to. Like I told you guys I would.

Well, it turns out that I had a good reason this time. I mean, I always have a good reason, but this week, I have an especially good reason: My husband had knee surgery on Wednesday morning. And when I say “morning,” I mean we had to be at the surgery center at 6:15 in the morning.

I should confess something to y’all right now: I hate alarm clocks. Like, hate. I wake up repeatedly throughout the night whenever I have an alarm set, worried that I slept through the alarm or it didn’t go off or [insert catastrophe here] and I’m going to be late and OH GOOODDDDDD!! and then I open up my eyeball (just one) far enough to see that it’s 2:13 in the morning and I can go back to sleep now. 

Lather, rinse, repeat about six times.

So having my husband’s surgery at 6:15 in the morning, in a town about 30 minutes away…I wasn’t sure I was gonna live through just that.

Then came the really fun part: He’s home now, and can do almost nothing without my help. Well, he’s mastered changing the channel on the TV, and drinking lots of coffee (which means lots of laborious trips to the bathroom) but he’s otherwise incapacitated.

Jasmine the Healing Cat snuggled against Handsome Hubby

I don’t mean to make my husband’s surgery all about me; after all, it was his knee that was drilled into, not mine. I’m just telling you why I’m two days late on my newsletter this week. ?

Jasmine being Jasmine, she has, of course, taken her snuggling duties Very Seriously. Handsome Hubby has taken up permanent residence on the couch in the living room, and Jasmine the Healing Cat has taken up permanent residence on him. In his arms, snuggled against his legs, on his chest…wherever she can give him the maximum amount of love. She has her job, and she’s going to do it, dammit!

When I got up this morning, she was snuggled down into the crook of his arm and they were both fast asleep. I took out my phone to snap what was going to be the Most Adorable Picture Ever, when I dropped said phone and woke them both up. So you just get Pretty Cute Picture instead. #sorry

So while I’m busy running errands and fetching more refills on coffee, I thought y’all would enjoy two things this week: A great deal on a book, and a super fun giveaway that I am doing on Facebook. Be sure not to miss either one.

Hungry Cowboy by Charlize Starr

sexy cowboy contemporary romance

A good girl. A bad cowboy. A dirty secret. Ready to figure this one out?

She used to be like my little sister.
Now her curves make me choke on my beer.
But she’s broke, and I’m the reason.
Not that she knows. It’s my secret.
I’ll make it up to her though.
I’ll offer her a job.
To be the live-in nanny at my ranch.
I’ll win her for me with my cowboy abs.
Seriously, who can resist those?
She’ll be screaming for more before she knows it.
All I need to do is keep my secret from her.
Or she’ll leave.

And I want her to stay.

This is a 97-page billionaire romance with a single dad and an innocent girl. It is a stand-alone story with an HEA, so no cliffhangers! Be prepared for panty-melting talk and lots of steam. Most definitely for 18+ readers.

~ $0.99 and in Kindle Unlimited ~
