Merry Christmas to Me! By Aline de Chevigny

Available Now from Forbidden Publications:


Jennifer was having the worst Christmas ever. She'd just quit her job, her ex had happily married some blonde Barbie doll and the man of her dreams didn't even know she was alive.
Franko was through with women, or so he thought until the hottest little spitfire he'd ever met walked into him and set him straight. He now had five days until she left the mine for good to convince her that he was the Christmas gift of her dreams.

Excerpts # 1

She’d never felt so angry. How could they disappoint so many people, without even a second thought? They’d used some lame ass excuse, about the flight crew wishing to spend the holidays with their families. Well Duh! Who didn’t? Unfortunately for her and everyone else in her boat, they couldn’t leave site if the plane didn’t show. “Damn, stupid, inconsiderate…”
Her tirade was cut short by what felt like walking into a brick wall. Looking up…and up, she came face to…chest with the new hotty mechanic at camp. She knew it was Franko Chissolm, she recognized the shirt.
Taking the step back, she tilted her head further back to look at him in the face to apologize. Her mouth dried up at the sight of him. He was even more impressive to look at up close. His scar, that everyone was talking about, made him look distinguished and dangerous. She always did like dangerous. “Uhm…I…ahhh… damn…sorry about that.” His eyes narrowed quickly at her in anger, she didn’t understand.
“Listen lady, I may not be much to look at anymore, but you can stop starring at my scars right this second!”
Jennifer took another step back in surprise and frowned. Her bad mood had just gotten worse thanks to his obvious rudeness. “Listen, I already apologized for walking into you, and might I remind you I’m the one who got hurt here! You’re built like a freaking brick wall, where I…let’s just say I’m not. As for you’re scars, honey I have no idea who you’ve been listening to, but you are a serious babe and you’d better get used to tongue tied idiots like me acting like dolts around you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go before I stick my foot any further into my mouth.”
Brushing past him, she fought to control the blushes she felt heating her cheeks. She really needed to learn to control her mouth when annoyed. Although, the look on his face when she called him a babe, was worth some embarrassment.
Reaching the door to her dorm residence, she couldn’t resist one last look back to see if he was still watching her.

Tuesday Teasers hehe

Ok so I thought long and hard about what I should blog about today and decided that I would tease you with a little bit of my NANO.

Nano for those of you who aren't aware...sometimes we writers forget the world doesn't revolve around out anograms teh National Novel Writing Month. It goes from November 1st to November 30tha nd you need to write 50, 000 words on one story.

Mine is called I know you Love me.

Chapter 1

“Good morning Gertrude, I’ll be in my office if anyone needs me. Can I get a cup of coffee please?” Drew knew he had a full day ahead of him and didn’t like the look Gertrude was giving him over his simple request fro coffee one bit.
“Uhmmm Sherriff, there’s…”
Opening his office door, he was stopped cold by a pretty petite young brunette sitting behind his desk. The woman sat there completely at ease, radiating an air of authority looking as if she belonged there. She was just hanging up the phone while flipping through a stack of paper, and was pushing every button he had when it came to attractive women…He disliked her immediately.
“Have a seat Sherriff, I’ll be with you in just a moment. I have a few more files to go through first.”
“GERTRUDE!” He really didn’t have time for this today.
“Oh please Sherriff, sit that cute little tush of yours down in that chair to your left and stop bellowing at the poor woman. I’ll introduce myself to you in a moment.”
The arrogance of her reply when she saw him, pushed his last button. Cute little tush? How dare she speak to me like that? Who does she think she is? He wasn’t about to let some woman talk to him like that in his own precinct, no matter how cute she was.
“Here you go Sherriff, black two sugars just the way you like it.”
Counting to ten, he turned to face his secretary. “Gertrude there’s a woman in my chair.” Gertrude flinched away from him, making him feel like a big bully.
“Ye…yes sir, she’s the auditor sent by the county. Try being nice to her…please?”
“Great, just what I needed today. You’ll have to move all my appointments to this afternoon, and…” Annoyance filled him when he realized Gertrude wasn’t listening to him anymore.
“Can I get you anything Miss McKay? Tea, coffee?
Drew wasn’t fooled, he could tell that Gertrude wanted out of the line of fire as quickly as possible.
“No thank you Gertrude, and please call me Allison.”
“Oh no, I couldn’t do that. Excuse me I need to get back to the phones.”
Taking a seat, Drew, steepled his fingers before his face and leaned back. He was trying to look intimidating and it usually worked, but this woman was too smart to fall for his ruse. “Well Allison…”
“That’s Miss McKay to you Sherriff, and now that you know who I am. I have a few questions for you.”

Have a great Tuesday.

13 Reason's I know I exist: Edition 19

Thirteen Things about Aline de Chevigny

I read an article in the Southern Review the other day stating that Aline de Chevigny was a Pen name that belonged to someone else. Well heck, last time I checked, I was Me and not some figment of another author's imagination LOL. Although if I am a figment, can I please request a little good luck for a change. I mean I know author's like to torture their Heroine's. It make a better read, bur seriously, I think I've been tortured enough and every Heroine in Romance get's an HEA.
Below you will find my top 13 reasons I know I exist, despite what that reporter says!

1- I had that sort of childhood, you know the one where you're forced to grow up too fast. A twelve year old just should not be in charge of an eight year old for days on end.

2- You try growing up with a name Nobody could properly pronounce, let alone spell.

3- I get serenaded with the song Aline by Christophe at every New Year's Eve party I go to when people learn my name, and sometimes just cause they feel like it. Believe it or not, most people can't sing LOL

4- I've been to more than my fair share of funerals for family members who never reached 40, let alone 65.

5- My sister once bit my nose so hard I needed 4 stitches.

6- I've learnt that it is possible to break your elbow 4 times in 1 year.

7- Puppy's really are as soft as soft as they appear, and as lovable. They’re always happy to see you.

8- I know that when learning to swim, being thrown off the end of the dock into the deep water and told to get back to the shore is not trust inspiring.

9- I know that changing schools every 2 years, does not make it easier to meet new friends the next time you move. It does raise your odds of running into another kid whose parents couldn’t stay put LOL

10- I have 4 nephews and 1 niece who adore me and think I’m the coolest. (You can’t make things like that up.)

11- I know that -40 degrees Celsius is damn cold and not weather you want to be out in for long. So given that knowledge, working a 12 hour days, for 15 days straight is both emotionally and physically exhausting. Working those kinds of hours out in -20 degree Celsius weather is doubly so, I’m afraid to find out what it’s like in colder weather.

12- I’ve learnt that if you’re going to play a practical joke on your uncles, you better make damn sure you plan your escape route. They may be old, but they can still run fast LOL

13- If I weren’t real I would be a size 2 and covered in men. Damn straight I would!

So what do you think? Do I exist, or is the reporter right and I'm a figment of some genius writer's imagination? Cause she’d have to be a genius to have put me through some of the things I’ve done over the years, that she writes for the Soaps. Day's of Aline's Life! Hey I'd watch that LOL.

Don't make promises you can't keep.
