GuestPost and Giveaway – Carrie Ann Ryan talks bad boys and offers a giveaway!

Posted in Uncategorized / 6 Comments

Yes. That’s one of my favorite topics. I really, really, like the topic of reformed bad boys. Yes, sometimes they show up in my mind as the leather clad, long haired, bad boys. Sometimes it’s just that smile that makes you want to think dirty things.

Or is that just me?

Maybe it’s because when we were younger, our mommas warned us about them. Those bad boys are the ones who will take you on the back of their bike for a ride…in more ways than ones. Those bad boys are the ones with the grins, the chiseled looks, and the ability to make you want to be a very, very, bad girl.

Justin Cooper is the reformed bad boy. There’s a reason he’s so reformed, but you’ll have to read the book to see why. *cue evil laugh* This ex-bad boy was the baddest of the Cooper clan of sexy men, but is now the school principle.

Yes, he’s the authority figure.

Watch out.

But they’re still that air of OMG take me now around him. The single mommas, and even some of the not-so-single mommas are taking note of him and will do anything to have him.

Luckily Justin only wants a certain blonde elf though.

He’s going to find Rina in all her goodness is just perfect for the ex-bad boy in him.

Leather jackets and all.

Justin Cooper wasn’t always the straight-laced Holiday Elementary School principal. In his youth, he broke all the rules and enjoyed being the bad Cooper brother. One Christmas Eve night he got a little too rowdy and things changed forever. Now the consequences of that fateful night have come back in full force and the myths of Christmas might be more real than he thought.

Rina Brewer is one of Santa’s elves. Not the tiny cute little toy maker, but the sexy, petite, energy filled bombshell kind. She’s come to Holiday to aid Justin in his new role as Santa’s executive, but as soon as she sees the sexy ex-bad boy, she realizes the job may be more than she bargained for.

As they work together to make this Christmas one to remember, an old foe has come to town to make sure that this holiday is the coldest yet.


Warning: Contains a perky elf who dreams of something more, a Christmas myth who may be a baddie, and a sexy ex-bad boy who craves Christmas cookies…and a certain perky blonde.


It would be totally inappropriate to want him.

But, in reality, the connection between an assistant and their executive could be an intimate one if they let it. They were sharing magic, and sometimes a connection would hold. She hadn’t thought about that when she’d come down here. Honestly, she hadn’t thought much of anything. But, she couldn’t think of any of that now. No, she had work to do.

Plus, the object of her thoughts was staring at her with an intensity that threatened to send shivers of need down her body.

“Rina?” Justin’s deep voice caught her attention, and she wanted to moan. Fruitcake, she had to get off that track. “What’s wrong? Are you still cold?”

He pulled her closer and ran his hands up and down her arms. She almost closed her eyes and leaned into his touch but resisted. Barely.

“I’m fine, just warming up.” She pulled back from his arms and tried to ignore the sudden loss. “Are you ready to go?”
