Welcome: Carrie Ann Ryan and Charmed Spirits!!!



 
A Holiday, Montana Refresher

So what is Holiday, Montana and why do I keep going on and on about it? Well, that’s easy, this the name of my new series and the small town where my sexy Cooper brothers live. But it’s not just that, not by far.
Holiday, Montana is where make believe is real. Every myth you heard as a child about holidays and the characters that made it fun aren’t myths…but real. Santa, the tooth fairy, Cupid, witches, ghosts…they’re all real.
But the world doesn’t know it.
Holiday is the mecca of holiday paranormals and the Cooper brothers are in the middle of them all. Each Cooper brother will find out that the holidays aren’t as boring as they thought they were, no, they’re filled with magic.
Matt Cooper is the first brother we’ll meet in CHARMED SPIRITS. When he was younger, he was in love with the local witch, Jordan Cross. When she left to escape the town’s hatred of something different, he’d thought he’d lost his heart. But now she’s back and Matt has a second chance…if he wants it.
So yes, you’ve guessed it, the first book is all about Halloween. I have trick-or-treating, a haunted house, a sexy witch, and a ghost….yep, a ghost.
I love the holidays—all of them, and I’m so happy to share a little bit of this world with you.
So, what’s your favorite holiday?

Charmed Spirits Blurb


Jordan Cross has returned to Holiday, Montana after eleven long years to clear out her late aunt’s house, put it on the market, and figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Soon, she finds herself facing the town that turned its back on her because she was different. Because being labeled a witch in a small town didn’t earn her many friends...especially when it wasn't a lie.

Matt Cooper has lived in Holiday his whole life. He's perfectly content being a bachelor alongside his four single brothers in a very small town. After all, the only woman he'd ever loved ran out on him without a goodbye. But now Jordan’s back and just as bewitching as ever. Can they rekindle their romance with a town set against them?

Warning: Contains an intelligent, sexy witch with an attitude and drop-dead gorgeous man who likes to work with his hands, holds a secret that might scare someone, and really, really, likes table tops for certain activities. Enough said.

EXCERPT
Matt Cooper walked into the hardware store in a daze, his body going through the motions while his mind tumbled in an array of memories, anger, and longing.
She’s back.
Jordan Cross, his high school love and childhood best friend…back. She’d left without a word, leaving a mess of dashed possibilities and his broken heart in her wake.
But, Jesus, she looked even better than before.
Her green eyes seemed darker, more haunted or sorrowful, than before, like she’d fought more than she’d bargained for and was still losing. Her hair was longer now, very glossy sable locks falling to the middle of her back in careless waves. He’d had loved to run his fingers through it when they sat at the lakeside watching the sun set.
Yes, they’d been that clich├ęd in high school, but he’d loved her.
Loved.
Past tense. Because he didn’t love her anymore. She’d left him. Left him with his problems, his everything and yet nothing.
Matt shook his head and went behind the counter, trying to ignore the dull pain in his temples. Darn witch, she shouldn’t be here. He didn’t want to think about her. Didn’t want to deal with it all over when she left again.

Not sure if this is international or not. My favourite holiday is Christmas :) I love choosing presents that suit the person I'm buying for so do a lot of thinking and browsing. Then I get to spend a few days with family so what could be better?
