All I want for Christmas……
…is time with my family.
I love Christmas! It’s one of my favourite times of the year, and the very best part of it for me is spending time with my family and friends. I have the dream job (or at least I think I do!) but I do work very long hours during the year, so at Christmas I try and close my laptop, shut out the characters who live in my head and spend time with the real people I love most in the world.
Like many families, we have our own traditions and one of our favorites is choosing the tree. Early in December, (but not too early or we are singing carols around a pile of dead pine needles by the 25th) we all wrap up in our warmest layers and go to the forest near our home where there is always a magical atmosphere. It’s usually frosty cold and we’re stamping our feet to keep warm but the foresters light fires and roast chestnuts and the whole thing feels really festive.
Our tree decorations are like an album of our life, snapshots of our journey as a family from handmade wonky stars the children made at school when they were very young (and an angel with a surprisingly fierce expression) – to intricate baubles bought on trips abroad.
Christmas Day itself will be spent with extended family, and there will be plenty of eating and talking followed by long family walks in the cold winter air to work off some of the calories consumed.
Whatever you’re hoping for this Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful time.

Skylar Tempest has never understood Alec Hunter’s appeal. So what if he’s a world-renowned historian? He’s also cynical, aloof and determined to think the worst of her. So when a twist of fate finds her spending the lead-up to Christmas with Alec and his family, she’s not expecting the season to be either merry or bright.
Alec has learned the hard way not to trust beautiful women—and Skylar is the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. But as he watches her throw herself into his family’s festive chaos, Alec realises there is far more to this blonde bombshell than meets the eye.
With Christmas around the corner, Alec and Skylar return to Puffin Island, a tentative bond forged between them. Neither intends to fall in love but as the nights become darker, and the fire between them grows hotter, could this be the chance for Alec and Skylar to find their own happy ending?
