Holiday Gifts Of Love Blog H0p


Welcome to the Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop…I’m on a hop marathon as you can tell…

With the holidays just around the corner the malls are packed and people are going nuts to finish buying the perfect gift for someone on their list.

I on the other hand don’t have to worry about running around like a chicken with no head trying to buy gift after gift..Why you may ask? Well for the past few years my family has taken on new tradition. We don’t exchange gifts with each other. Why? Well we decided we don’t need anything.

Instead we do Christmas angels. There are families in our community who are less fortunate than us and they can’t afford things. There is a Christmas tree at the church with angels. Each angel contains a gift or something that a person needs. It can range from a gift card, to a tin of cookies and simple things like toiletries. It has the age, the gender and if need be the item they need.

We take a few angels off the tree and instead buy the items these less fortunate families or people require. My family are able to afford the simple things we require but there are those out there who are not able to. We would rather bring a little joy into their lives during the holiday season.

So what are your holiday plans this year?

Side note: This is a re-release of the previously published Taste Of Passion. The book has been re-edited and there have been significant changes made to the story. It is now 2x the original length.


Bakery owner Valentine Benington’s day just went from the best of her life to the worst. Toronto Tribune reviewer, David Fraser, shows up for a review just after a fire comes close to destroying her kitchen. After David’s last assignment, which ended with food poisoning, it’s not the best of starts, especially since the job is a last-minute thing. He doesn’t expect to run into a woman from his past. First looks can be deceiving. The food isn’t the only thing on the menu he’d like to taste. When these two get baking, the flames from the oven aren’t the only thing setting the kitchen on fire.


“Yes, I’m still here,” she replied and covered her mouth with her sleeve trying to breath.
She had to get herself and Sam out of there before it was too late. Just as she moved over to stand up, her phone crashed to the ground, splintering into pieces. The battery slid across the floor and landed somewhere under the sink as the other pieces scattered around her feet.
“Shit,” she groaned.
She wasn’t going to wait for help to arrive and there was no time to run to the front to call them back. Every second that ticked by meant that Sam wasn’t receiving the help he desperately needed. Plus, there was no way to breathe in here. She had to get them outside into the fresh air. They would suffocate if they stayed any longer.
Valentine grasped his arms, lifted them up, and with all the energy she held inside her, she started to pull his unconscious body across the floor toward the back entrance. Sam’s larger statue made it difficult for her and robbed her of energy as she pushed herself and dragged him. The smoke stung her eyes and her airway began to constrict as she felt short of breath. Damn it, she wasn’t going to stop, not now. Valentine inhaled her last breath and pushed through the discomfort and the overwhelming urge to stop. As fast and hard as she could, she shoved her body against the heavy metal door with a thud. Losing her footing, she released Sam and crashed onto the cold, hard ground. Her body hungered for fresh air and she gasped in each breath, filling her oxygen deprived lungs.
Everything happened so fast. One minute she walked into the shop and the next she was battling a fire that was consuming the contents of whatever was in and around the oven. She barely remembered doing anything, let alone dragging Sam out. Adrenaline and instinct kicked in and she got them outside on autopilot.

I love your idea of not getting gifts for the family.
Happy Holidays!


ShadowDecember 17th, 2012 at 3:45 pm

What an awesome hop!! And a fantastic giveaway! Thank you!! We dont do gifts anymore. Ruined the holidays and caused too much fighting. Now, we make dinner, grab a bunch of snacks, we watch movies, tell stories, play games, listen to music. I love how we celebrate! 🙂 Happy holidays to you all! Best wishes and many blessings!

HMM, I wonder if the granite was cold. Liked the blurb. Thank you Savannah. We too only do token gifts and we like to do nice things for others.

My favorite part of the season is cookies; making them, eating them. I’m not picky and everyone is so willing to share.
