Book: The New Year’s Fantasy
Release Date: January 5, 2015
My next release, The New Year’s Fantasy is the sequel The Christmas Fantasy, a holiday novella that was published in 2010. The Christmas Fantasy, based on the title is all about a woman’s fantasy come to life during the Christmas holiday. Molly, the heroine of The Christmas Fantasy, was born on Christmas. She decided for her thirtieth birthday, she would lose her virginity to Jackson (a hunky firefighter who wears glasses), her older brother’s best friend. Her best friend, Jessica, was also a Christmas baby and a virgin who set her sights on Mandy’s brother Chris.
The New Year’s Fantasy is a sequel of sorts to The Christmas Fantasy. Jessica is the heroine, and her chance at a happily ever after takes place on New Year’s Eve where she catches the eye of a much older, dashing man, who happens to be Chris’s boss- fire captain Douglass Finley. Both Jessica and Doug have had a bad patch in the love department. I wanted Doug and Jessica to connect during the New Year’s Eve party they’re at, and I decided to take a “lust at first sight” approach from Doug. The reason Doug notices Jessica is because she’s enjoying a plate of chocolate covered strawberries. Doug can’t stop watching Jessica because as he never witnessed a woman so turned on by eating fruit.
Here’s the exclusive excerpt of that chocolate strawberries eating scene where Doug first notices Jessica:
A flash of light from someone’s camera went off next to him, blinding him for a moment. He blinked and turned away, this time facing the windows. A few feet away, a woman sat alone at a table, eating strawberries—or rather, she made love to them with her mouth.
He lowered his glass, afraid he would choke on his drink. This woman, a good ten years younger than him, with long, rich copper hair framing her scantily clad chest, kept her eyes closed as she devoured a strawberry covered in white chocolate. Her tongue swept along her bottom lip, swiping away the remains of any juice and chocolate she left behind. When a bit of chocolate landed on chest, right above the globe of her breast, she gasped, dabbing at her skin with a napkin.
Blood rushed to his cock, and his balls swelled. He licked his lips, imagining how soft her flesh must be and how incredible she would taste, both sweet and salty at the same time. He shifted to relieve the pressure in his dick. He should stop staring before his arousal became noticeable, but he couldn’t. This stunning vision was a feast for the eyes.
The beauty peered around her as she finished her erotic daubing, a sheen of red highlighting her cheeks. She then swirled another strawberry through a puddle of white on her plate, bringing it to her mouth and biting down, her lips puckering as she did.
His breath hitched, and his pulse lambasted his eardrums. The end of the beauty’s hair tickled her nipple. The bead of flesh covered by the sequined fabric stiffened before his eyes. He’d never seen a woman turned on by eating fruit!
I’m a dirty old man. Catching the object of his inspection staring right back at him, he shifted his gaze away. She flicked her hair over her shoulders, giving him a wider view of her cleavage that would make any man drool. An amused light came into her eyes as she studied him, zeroing in on his crotch.
She can’t be looking at…. No way. He chuckled, letting her get her fill. It was only right since he’d been the voyeur first.
She twirled a strawberry around in the air. She then popped it in her mouth and winked. He laughed.
Thankful she wasn’t insulted by his peeping, he grabbed his glass and approached the table, hoping she wouldn’t tell him to get lost. He concentrated on her lips, plump and lush, as if she’d just been given a lusty kiss. He cleared his throat. “You like strawberries.”
Her forehead knitted in confusion.
What the fuck is wrong with me? Of course she likes strawberries! He grimaced at his lame statement, wishing he had a rewind button. He waited for her roll her eyes or even get up and leave.
With an impish smile, she pushed the plate toward him. “I do love them. Want a taste?”
Does Doug taste the strawberries Jessica offers him, and perhaps much more? To find out you’ll have to pick up a copy of The New Year’s Fantasy on January 5th 2015.

About the Book:
Seven years ago, the once overweight Jessica Mulligan made a pact with her best friend that ended up changing her life for the better. Now sixty pounds lighter, Jessica’s self-confidence has soared, but her longtime firefighter crush still won’t notice her.
What she doesn’t count on is catching the eye of his boss, the much older and handsome Captain Douglass Finley, who thinks she’s perfect in so many ways…
Three years ago, Doug Finley’s life took a turn for the worse when his wife admitted to an affair with their next door neighbor. Other than the possibility of a promotion to Deputy Fire Commissioner, the only thing he looks forward to is weekends with his eleven-year-old daughter. With his forty-fifth birthday around the corner, his love life is in the toilet. The ritzy New Year’s Eve bash he has been roped into feels like torture, until he spies a vision of beauty eating chocolate covered strawberries like she’s making love to them…and all he can think about is making love to her.
When Jessica admits she never had an orgasm, he’s determined to give her the ultimate New Year’s fantasy she’ll never forget.
But can he convince her they belong together for longer than one night?

this looks and sounds fantastic! And yummy 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
One of my husband’s coworkers makes an insane rum cake at Christmas but won’t share the recipe. Another makes something I’m told is famous in Canada called Moose Milk that is amazeballs.
I love pumpkin cheesecake and peanut butter noodle cookies.
Another great recipe for the holidays are truffles! Kraft has this cracktastic oreo cookie one. http://www.kraftrecipes.com/recipes/simply-sensational-truffles-107529.aspx So good!
I have a sweet tooth, so it’s hard to have just one favorite. I love the different christmas cookies and pies that come out this time of the year.
It was really hard to get into the Xmas mood to put up the tree yesterday since it was warm enough for us to turn our AC back on in the house. And as I type this we now have the heat back on. Sigh, life in the south.
My favorite holiday treat is oreo truffles.
Snowball cookies, hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream, a warm blanket and a sizzling book!!
snowball cookies? What are those?
I’m a sucker for the See’s candy….but chocolate in any form if I’m honest. This story looks like a hot way to wait for the ball to drop…thanks for the giveaway and the recipe!
OMG… I miss See’s!! I love all of their variations on caramels and chews! Pecan roll… to die for!
Maybe Santa will send you some…provided you don’t shoot Santa’s elf for the temptation…
My favorite holiday treat is Christmas cookies.
