25 Days of Christmas – A Prickly Christmas Kiss

On the twenty-fourth day of Christmas…

A Prickly Christmas Kiss by Allyson R.Abbott

Emma Louise Fallon, aka Elf, has two wishes for Christmas. Having spent the last few months bragging about her latest boyfriend, who’s turned out to be a womanizing cheat, one, she needs to escape her well-meaning family, and, two, she needs to avoid all men while she’s in a man-hating mode.

But stranded in a cold isolated cabin, when her girlfriend is forced to bail out on their vacation plans, Elf makes one more desperate wish: Can she please learn how to build a fire before she freezes to death?

The solo rustic life is becoming all too much for her. She’s convinced that a stray cat, who has decided to keep her company, has magical powers, that the local shop owners are secretly Mr. and Mrs. Claus, and nothing can stop her from laughing when the hot local Martian -come cop – come veterinarian – introduces himself as Rudi.

Will Elf need to break her rule about staying away from men, and rely on this hunk for helping her start a fire? Or, worse, yet, will she be able to control the fire that Rudi’s ignited in her?

A Prickly Christmas Kiss

Meet the Author…

I come from Northamptonshire in England although since 2010, when my partner retired, have spent a lot of time travelling or visiting other countries, and now have settled in Spain for a few years.

We live in a small town not far from the sea and enjoy the Spanish way of life and of course the climate. After being on the road for a few years I am also now enjoying the luxury of having my own kitchen again and am taking advantage of locally grown fruit and vegetable and have cupboards of jars of preserves and a freezer full of pies and vegetable dishes. I find that concocting in the kitchen helps me to relax and unwind, while my mind is still plotting my books and stories.

I enjoy writing (fiction and nonfiction) and enjoy the whole camaraderie of the indie author community and have now launched (with my husband) a Book Award program, ( with one award specifically aimed at New Authors, where the prize is a combination of help and support with promotion and networking. To back up the awards and offer of a supportive environment, I, along with a good friend and soon to be author, Donna Wolz, am now offering promotion events and theme days on a Facebook page where all authors and readers are welcome to join in.

So, with the marmalade making and kitchen wizardry, the plotting, writing, publishing and promoting of my books, the running and organizing of the Paragon Book Awards and now the promotion events, while making new friends, life is busy, but I still find time to go for a paddle in the sea every few days and of course keep up with my friends and family back in the UK. The good thing about living by the sea as well is we do get a constant stream of visitors, helping us get through the stock pile of preserve and getting out and about to see the beautiful sights in Spain.

I love to hear from my readers, so please do not hesitate to drop me a line.
