Happy Thanksgiving to my friends in the U.S.! I always get a bit sad about being abroad at Thanksgiving. I love it just as much as Christmas, since it’s a time to be with family without the worry of finding the right gift.
Speaking of gifts, one of you won Ben Cohen’s 2014 calendar. Huzzah! Here’s the original post where I announced the giveaway. Even though it’s too late to enter, I recommend reading the post. There are some videos of lovely Ben Cohen talking about his StandUp Foundation – and videos of him dancing and working out. Seriously. If you need a break from your family today, lock yourself in a room with those videos. He’s a stunning example of humanity!
Right…who won the calendar? It’s…Helen L!
Congrats, Helen! Please email me your mailing address: romancingkatrina[at]gmail[dot]com
If you didn’t win, you can support Ben’s work fighting bullying and homophobia by buying the calendar, women’s T-shirts, men’s T-shirts, and body products guaranteed to make your man look like Ben. (Don’t hold me to that last promise.)

Thanks to a transatlantic house swap, California girl Ashley Turner is finally going to fulfill her lifelong dream of a proper English Christmas. Her holiday plans did not include a sexy stranger climbing into her borrowed bed in the middle of the night. But in the light of day, Ashley can’t help but wonder if Santa has delivered early…
Game designer Oliver Stansfeld can’t wait to leave dreary London—and all its difficult holiday memories—for sunny San Diego. But a freak ice storm and a grounded plane have forced him back to his already-occupied flat. To make up for the mix-up, the least he can do is show his pretty houseguest where to get the perfect Christmas tree before he leaves.
The more time they spend together, the more their attraction grows, and soon Ashley is tempting Oliver to give in to the spirit of the season and snuggle up for the rest of the winter. As the ice melts and flights start taking off again, he must choose between giving in to the past or risking his heart on a chance at love.
Also available in All I’m Asking For: A Contemporary Christmas Anthology
