Day 12 - Jay Hogan
Happy holidays friends, authors, and fellow readers!
I’m so excited to be taking part in the advent calendar and hope you’re all discovering lots of amazing new books to stuff your Kindle with.
In New Zealand it is of course summer for Christmas and also the start of the school summer vacation break, so most of my childhood Christmas memories are of barbecues and picnics and camping and Christmas swims in the ocean. But I have also spent many white Christmases in Canada, Paris and Korea and I think what I miss the most about a summer Christmas is not seeing all the Christmas lights as much, since it’s daylight until late at night. And nothing beats looking for a Christmas tree in the snow.
I don’t have a Christmas novel this year, so I thought I’d remind you of OFF BALANCE, the first in my hugely popular Painted Bay series https://readerlinks.com/l/1899648 .
OFF BALANCE 2021 Romance Book of The Year Award — Romance Writers of New Zealand
When JUDAH MADDEN flees his tiny suffocating home town in New Zealand for the dream of international ballet stardom, he never intends coming back. Not to Painted Bay. Not to his family’s struggling mussel farm. Not to his jerk of a brother. Not with his entire life plan in shreds. And certainly not into the tempting arms of MORGAN WIPENE, the older, ruggedly handsome fisheries officer who seems determined to screw with Judah’s intention to wallow in peace.
But dreams are fickle things. Shatter them and it’s hard to pick up the pieces. Hard to believe. Hard to start again.
And the hardest thing of all? Finding the courage to trust in love and build a new dream where you least expected to find it.
It’s the perfect time to read, or re-read Off Balance because…
IN STEP, the third book in this series is due for release February 10 and you can pre-order it here.

One of my favourite times each holiday season is dusting off the box of ornaments and reliving the memories attached to them. Handmade treasures from my kids, gorgeous glass baubles, kitschy characters, and always the star for the top!
To win a $5 Amazon gift card, and an ebook of your choice from my catalogue, I want to know: what is the ornament or Christmas decoration you most look forward to rediscovering each year?
