Welcome Hoppers to Carrie Ann’s Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop. Join over 200 bloggers celebrating the holiday season and the joy of love.
I am going to do this a little differently and focus on the love of nature. We all have one to some extent although it expresses itself so differently–a love of animals, water, hiking, starlight skies, organic foods, hanging out at the beach, or making snow angels.
For me, I have been trying to build a love for nature into my life in an every day way–through pets, remembering to look at the stars, eating as close to nature as possible, talking walks to feel the sun on my face. I think the need to do this more consciously is getting more important. Jacques Cousteau may have captured this feeling best, when he said. “For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”
How is a love for nature expressed in your life? For one commenter, I will adopt an endangered species in your name from the World Wildlife Fund. You get to pick which one and receive the $25.00 adoption packet.
We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!
Over the holidays, if you are shopping for an ebook, consider my recent release Fires of Justice from Ellora’s Cave. Just the right amount of hot for a cold, wintry night.
Fires of Justice Book Blurb
Beholden by the sacred vows of her coven, fire witch Calista Reid agrees to temporarily mate with shifter Cullen McMahan to fulfill a mission assigned by the guardians. When tall, dark and damaged arrives on her doorstep, generating enough heat to scorch a fire witch, Calista finds herself drawn to his battle-hardened body and broken soul. His pain speaks to her own deep-rooted isolation and the intensity of his hunger slakes her passion like no other.
Cullen, scarred by a past that left him an indentured soldier to the guardians, resents yet another hump-on-command assignment…until he encounters the compassionate, fearless, incendiary redhead who detonates his body and reawakens the emotions sacrifice and loss had suppressed. But Cullen harbors a terrible secret—one that reaches back into Calista’s troubled childhood and threatens the foundation of their growing bond.
