Our Sexy New Year ~ @oddlynn3 #MySexySaturday #Saturday7 #LynnCrain

Welcome to week 74th week of My Sexy Saturday. The week’s theme is Our Sexy New Year and it’s all the New Year. Aren’t the beginnings of a new year wonderful? It’s as if you can reset the clock to do anything you want. Lose weight, find a new love, buy that big purchase you’ve always wanted or maybe just slow down and enjoy the life you have. I’ve been enjoying my life so far this year.

We had visitors this year and I meet my youngest’s new girlfriend, who is a joy. We did very little as the weather wouldn’t permit us too much while they were here. And on the day they left, things totally changed. This year has started with a bang and the Austrian weather is so very, very strange. We’ve had snow and now we’re having a heat wave that is wonderful. It’s soon to be followed by more snow and rain with temperatures falling yet again. But for today, we decided to enjoy the sun and get out.

My holiday giveaway has been extended until tomorrow. If you haven’t entered, please go and do so. There are lots of great gifts from here in Veinna…just go to my other blog to see what it’s all about…it’s part of a multi-author reader holiday giveaway spree. Every author on the list over there is giving something to their readers. I’m giving 5 gifts to my readers all over the world. Yes, you heard me right. I will ship to you no matter where you live. Be aware, you do have to do one thing from the list, as well as the fact you won’t get it before Christmas. I’m so slow this year and I totally apologize for being behind the curve but I think you’ll enjoy what I’m giving away. Remember to leave your email address so I can get back to you with your gift.

This week, I’m again sharing sexy seven paragraphs from my book The View From Santa’s Sleigh. I know I use it a lot but this will be the last week as next week, I’ll be starting with a whole new story. It’s the only one that has anything remotely close to being around a new year and those celebrations. Here’s the setup:

Tessa, very let down by love, is surprised to find herself comforted by the red-suited man himself on Christmas Eve. Thinking that he is the figment of her slightly tipsy mind, she pours her heart out to him hoping for just a little love, understanding and a good sexual encounter. Tessa gets more than she bargained for with an elf named Jedrick and both get the Christmas present of a lifetime. In only a short time, they find themselves realizing their love is for more than just the holiday season and more than just the sexual romp they had envisioned.

But Tessa has obligations in the real world and Jedrick needs to begin designs for next year. He gives Tessa a very special locket, telling her to use it anytime and he will come right away. Once back in her world, Tessa finds it has lost its charm and knows that her place is with the elf she loves, Jedrick. Their very humorous love-story is told amidst the backdrop of a post Christmas North Pole and the winter in Reno.

This was a wonderful series to write. I love building this world with my elves and am going to get back to it soon. It has Scotland in it and I’ve been too far away from that country recently. I hope you find the wonder of Santa’s Elves, Scotland, love and Christmas just as appealing as I do!

            “Then what’s the problem?” he questioned, moving closer to her.
            Tessa hiccupped and squelched what could only be a sob. “I don’t want to leave Angie alone. She doesn’t have anyone either.”
            Jedrick took her in his arms. “Just because you’ll live in the North Pole doesn’t mean you can’t keep in contact with your friends. I would never do that to you.”
            Tessa pulled back and looked at him. “You wouldn’t?”
            “Never,” he whispered and caressed her head. “I want you to be happy. I love you too much to keep you totally isolated if you didn’t like it. Besides, we have email.”
            Tessa smiled and threw her arms around him.
            “I really do love you,” she said, raining kisses along his face and neck.
            “I have a bone to pick with you, though.” He looked at her fiercely for a moment, looking from Tessa’s face to Angie’s expectant one. “You told her?”
