Hollywood Holiday: Excerpt and Giveaway.

(Red Carpet Series #2)
by Sasha Summers

Genre: Contemporary Romance.
Published: December 7th 2012 by InkSpell Publishing.


All she wants for Christmas is for Hollywood to love her again. But once she meets him, her Christmas list changes.
Jen’s only Christmas wish: Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she loves that he has no idea who her alter-ego is: Jen Fleming, Hollywood bad-girl and paparazzi target number one. Why ruin an amazing affair when he’s leaving after the new year? 
But the closer they get, the harder she falls, and the more she wants to tell Gunner everything. Especially once he shares his secret with her. 
Her new Christmas wish: Gunner accepts and loves her for who she really is. 


There Gunner stood, holding a small Christmas tree.

“Hi.” I blinked, a huge smile covering my face.

“This was supposed to be a surprise.” He sighed. “I was going to leave it on your porch, but…guess I’m busted.”

I looked at him, then at the Christmas tree, then at him. And I felt tears welling up again.

“Jen?” He set the Christmas tree down and came forward. “What’s the matter?”

I shook my head, even as the tears fell. “Nothing.”

His brow furrowed, but he smiled. “You don’t have much of a poker face. You okay?”

“Guess it’s the actress in me.” I sniffed. “I’m more the emotional type.”

“Is it the tree? You have a secret phobia of pine trees?” he teased.

“No, it’s sweet. I love Christmas trees. And Christmas.” I laughed, shaking my head. “But I wasn’t going to have one this year.”

“You are now.” He picked up the tree and carried it inside.

I stood back, watching him. He set the three-and-a-half-foot potted pine tree on the low bookshelf beneath the large picture window in my living room. It fit perfectly, immediately scenting the air with pine…and Christmas.

My eyes burned again. Stop crying.

Gunner turned the tree, finding the best side, then stepped back to look at it. “It’s small, but I thought it would work.” He smiled at me. Something about the look on my face—which was probably red and blotchy—made him cross the room and pull me into his arms.    

About the Author:

Sasha is  part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, Hollywood, history,  and travel. It’s no surprise that her books include a little of each. Her  first play, ‘Greek Gods and Goddesses’ was written for her Girl Scout troupe.  She’s been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and  characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher  or wash socks when she’s doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and  hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.
