Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 11 Posy Roberts

Today I have Posy Roberts stopping by, welcome Posy...

RJ, thanks for inviting me to this wonderful celebration.

I love the magic of the holiday season so much that I got married December twenty-ninth. It made for a very different sort of holiday that was low key in the run up to the ceremony. I wanted to draw on that experience, but not from the point of view of the person getting married.

In Analog to Digital, Ethan and Toby are spending their first holiday with Ethan’s family during one of these very weird Christmases because Ethan’s sister is renewing her vows. He’s Bah Humbug about her stealing the magic of the holiday, so he’s tried to temper his expectations for his trip home. It doesn’t work out so well for him. He becomes nostalgic for Christmases past, when surrounded by memories in his childhood home, and that makes him wonder about the Christmases yet to come for Toby and him.

But the holiday turns into something far more magical than Ethan ever expected. This is a feel-good, contemporary romance that will leave you grinning from ear to ear.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. I’m giving away a copy of one of my ebooks, winner’s choice. Leave a comment telling me about your holiday expectations that were blown out of the water or what you most look forward to.

The Book

All Ethan wants for Christmas, and the rest of his life, is Toby.

For years, Ethan and Toby have said they’ll never marry, despite Ethan’s secret wishes. So leaving sunny California for snowy Minnesota to witness his sister’s vow renewal is not how he wants to spend his Christmas Eve. It’s the second time she’ll say “I do” in less than a year, when Ethan saying those words to Toby even once is hopeless.

In the run-up to the ceremony, Toby seems to avoid Ethan, and doubts grow in his absence. Ethan can’t help noticing Toby spends more time with Ethan’s family than with him. Little does Ethan know, Toby has desires of his own. But if Toby doesn’t find a way to reveal them, Ethan could leave for home without him.
