Heather Long's Holiday Giveaway

As we go into the holiday season, I have been asking myself what I can do or how I can give to others. It has been a tough year for my family and a tough year for many families whether it is our soldiers fighting overseas, their families waiting at home, death in the families, divorces, economic hard times, cutthroat politicians trading on fear and hate and last, but most certainly not least tragedies such as those faced in Paris, Beirut, and many other places.

We are very familiar with the choke of the times. Here, I wanted to give something back this holiday season. Years ago, one of my local radio stations used to have write ins for people to nominate families for Christmas or holiday gift certificates. Nominated families or individuals included those who really were not going to have much to celebrate because they couldn't afford gifts or decorations or a big Christmas meal.

Beginning today and lasting until December 18, I am hosting a holiday give away post featuring an item and the author who is giving it away. To enter, all someone has to do is nominate the person they want to send the gift to and post a short reason why. If that person wins, then the gift will be sent to the recipient with a note wishing them a happy holiday season signed from the author giving it away, me and of course the person who entered them.

So far, I have several authors and items pledged to this effort. Be sure to visit daily throughout the holiday season and nominate those you love and care about and send them a gift – and yes, I will send them around the world!

Holiday Giveaway Rules

For a chance to win:
  1. Nominate the person you want to send that day’s gift to and a short reason as to why. (All entries in comments are counted toward final giveaways whether you use rafflecopter or not)

Heather Long #Holiday #Giveaway : Meet Author @ElianneAdams #Interview #Dragons



Born of snow and ice, or at least near snow and ice in Ontario, Canada, Élianne Adams has always enjoyed curling up with a good book and warm blanket. Even before she really knew what love was, she dreamed of writing her own stories, but it wasn`t until her very own hero encouraged her to follow her lifelong dream that she put the words begging to be told onto paper. When Élianne isn`t reading or writing, she can be found spending time with her husband, three children, and their three pets.

What words of wisdom would you impart with your younger self if you could go back to when you were writing your first book?
I think the first thing I’d tell myself is that the most important part of writing is enjoying what you’re doing. Take the time you need to learn the craft and put out the best possible book you can, but don’t lose track of the fun aspects of writing along the way.

When you’re not busy writing all the words, what do you like to do to occupy your free time?
I don’t think there is such a thing as free time for an author. When I’m not writing the words, I’m thinking about what happens next. Once the words are all on paper, I’m working on promotion and marketing. During the slower times, though, I love to spend my time with my kids, and hubby. We watch movies, play board games, and of course, like most authors, I love to read. I read everything romance, but my heart belongs to paranormal. I love the alphas and heroes that are larger than life.

Tell us about your writing day. Do you have a specific area where you always write? What kind of schedule to you keep? Are there any kind of writing rituals or habits that you can tell us about?
I’m very habitual when it comes to my writing. I have to sit at my desk. On the right side of my laptop, I always burn a red candle. I especially love it at this time of year since the cinnamon smell just puts me in a Christmas spirit. I usually have a coffee or water on my left, and my cat snoring on the arm of the couch next to me. I don’t have music, or the TV going, as I find it way too distracting. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t waste a bit of time on social media before I started writing each day, but I do try to limit it to thirty minutes or less when I’m on a deadline. Once I get my words for the day, then I do some promotion and get to do the fun stuff like talk to fans on Facebook or Twitter. I love chatting with readers.

Are there any new paranormal authors who have caught your eye recently?
I’ve recently read a story by Elizabeth Varlet called Abounding Dawn. I absolutely loved it. There’s something in her writer’s voice that draws me into the story, and won’t let go. I can’t recommend her highly enough. I can’t wait to see what she comes out with next.

If you could sit down and talk shop with any one author (past or present), who would you love to spend a few hours speaking with? Why? What would you ask them?

I love Christine Feehan. I was introduced to her Carpathian series a few years ago, and I’ll gladly admit that I’ve read all but the last two books. (more than once). I’ve since read all her other series as well, and enjoyed each of those as well. She encapsulates the meaning of Alpha males, and each book makes me fall in love with the heroes, and in the process the heroine as well. I think I’d ask her where her inspiration comes from, and how she keeps working in the same world over so many stories, while still keeping it fresh for the reader.


What’s in the works for you right now? When can we expect to see it released to the world?

I had the most ridiculous fall release schedule ever. Right now, I’m taking it a little easier as I gear up for Christmas, but not too easy. I have a boxed set coming out on January 5th called Wicked Alphas, Wildest Nights. It’s the third installment in the Wicked Alphas, Wild Nights series, and it’s going to be the hottest one of the bunch. I can’t wait to see what the other authors have in there for their sexy scenes.

Other than that, I am working on book three in my Dragon Blood series, Finding His Dragon. Books one, Releasing Her Dragon is available now, and Her Gingerbread Dragon comes out on December 10th, so keep your eyes peeled for it. Each of the stories is complete in and of themselves, but they all tie in together, so you’ll see Brycen and Stella from story one in Her Gingerbread Dragon, and so on. I always love to read more about previously seen characters when I read a series, so I’ve done that here.

If you love dragon romance, then check them out book one on Amazon:


Releasing Her Dragon



Where can you be found online?

I’m all over the place on the internet. The easiest way to keep up with all that is new and exciting from me is to join my Newsletter.


As I mentioned before, I love to chat with readers. You can find me on Facebook or on Twitter.

Heather Long #Holiday #Giveaway: Spotlight on an Enticing #Alpha



Savage Chaucer is bored.  Bored with being the Alpha of the San Francisco werewolf pack. Bored with politics. And even bored with the females in heat who frequent his dark and dirty sex club.  Savage craves change and lusts for excitement.  When the innocent, naive-looking Sydney Dyke wanders into his club, Savage's cravings are answered.


Sydney is the protected daughter of lone wolves, wolves who know nothing of how Savage runs his pack.  Sneaking off to experience cravings of her own, Sydney finds herself intrigued by the mysterious Alpha. Knowing she only has a small amount of time before she is fated to die at the hands of an ancient werewolf, who's rumored to no longer exist, Sydney vows to seek some excitement of her own.

Heather Long #Holiday #Giveaway: Have Yourself a Marine this Christmas


I have so much to be thankful for this year, it's hard to know where to start. This has been a year of ups and downs, saying hello and saying goodbye, meeting new friends, celebrating old friends. It's been a year of making changes, making commitments and meeting new challenges.

So where do you begin to account for all the little things you are grateful for? The more I stared at this post as I was writing it, the more I realized that I couldn't make a true list without forgetting someone or something that I was grateful for, but let's see if I can at least hit all the high notes and believe me, if you aren't on this list, it's not because I wasn't grateful or that I didn't think it was worth mentioning, it's because my cup runneth over and I am overwhelmed by all the things I have gratitude for.

Celebrating the Holidays

Because I am so thankful for so many things, I've invited a huge number of fabulous authors and others to celebrate the coming holiday season with my annual Holiday Giveaway. I have over a dozen wonderful giveaways to share with you beginning today and running through the 18th of December. Each day a new giveaway will be posted and they will each stay live for 72 hours before a winner will be picked.

Just in Time for #Thanksgiving Desert Wolf #WolvesofWillowBend #PNR #NewRelease



Cassius, Alpha of Sutter Butte, leads the most ruthless and dangerous pack in the United States. Misfits, castoffs, and forgotten wolves, they rose to create a pack more than a century ago in utter defiance of the order of the day. Seen as pitiless and cruel, Cassius wants more for his people than a yearly bloodbath as they fight for a better spot in the pecking order. To change his pack means to change himself, and he will find rebellion on all sides, not to mention from his own defiant heart.

Sovvan Stark, Omega of Delta Crescent, lives a cherished, beloved life in the center of her pack—a delicate and hard won balance. Though she is not the only Omega, she is the most experienced with the tremors of pack upset when power shifts from Alpha to Alpha. When her Alpha approaches her about Sutter Butte’s request, Sovvan considers the matter for several months. While she might hold within her the key to helping the Sutter Butte Alpha, the undertaking could very well kill her.

Accompanied by a single Hound, Sovvan begins a journey to help Cassius rebuild the foundation of his pack, but first she will have to transform him…

A Moment from The Author

Disclaimer: The following post is not intended to make anyone feel "guilty" it is however intended to make you feel, but more to make you think. It's easy to react to scary situations with fear. It's easy to shut the door and say it's not my problem. It's even easier to let fear turn to hate. 

I do not spend a lot of time trying to be deep, or to engage in socio-political discourse. After the last several days of reading social media statuses and watching the news with pundits politicizing tragedy, and seeing the sweeping statements of fear and hate with regard to refugees and more, I wanted to share a story. 

When I was a kid, my grandmother used to take the family on road trips. Every summer, we'd pile into the car and go somewhere. Sometimes it was to visit my brother's paternal family in Kentucky, sometimes it was to go to some landmark or battlefield somewhere, sometimes it was just pointing at a map and driving there to see what we would find. 

My parents had a somewhat nomadic existence during my childhood. My grandmother always wanted to go see something new, some place new, and sometimes it worked out and sometimes it didn't. We moved every two years, I can pack my house and unpack in under a day. I hate to live out of boxes, but these are all due to a childhood spent on the move constantly. 

During one of these many trips, we came across a family whose vehicle had broken down at a rest stop. Mom, Dad and their four kids had no money, no place to live and no way to fix their vehicle. We split our food with them at a picnic table and Nan listened to their story. Dad had been laid off, and Mom had been a stay at home mom. He looked for work and took spare jobs, but couldn't get anything permanent. 

Eventually, piece by piece, they lost everything. As an adult and parent, I can't imagine the growing sense of frustration and fear. I didn't understand it then, only that their middle daughter was my age and she said, they'd lost their house, and now they were losing their car...they were living out of the car. The kids slept in it and their parents slept out side. 

They were on their way to friends or family (I was never sure which) in California, and we were somewhere in Tennessee. After spending an hour with them, my grandmother loaded us in the car and we got on the road. Then she pulled off at the next exit, found a mechanic's shop and got them to go back to the rest stop with a tow truck. 

We followed.

Over the next several hours, so many strange things happened. We stuck around while Nan had their car fixed and paid for it--please keep in mind we never had much, and we always eeked by with the bare minimum. She got on a payphone (yeah we didn't have cell phones back then kids) and called my mother at home. Told her she was sending the family that way and to give them a place to stay. After all, we were gone for the next couple of weeks. Then she gave the family money, though they kept refusing her and our address. She told them to go to our place, and when we got back, she'd help them figure it out from there.

It was so weird.

Weirder still, two weeks later when we got home. The whole family was living in our apartment. And they were so happy to see us. I suddenly had to share my bedroom with two other girls. The parents were sleeping in my mom's room, and my brother had to share his room too. My grandmother slept in her room downstairs and my mom took the sofa.

That family lived with us for three months, and we never had much money. With the family there, we had even less.  When we were eating tighter and tighter, I remember complaining to my grandmother that we could get more food if we didn't have to feed all these extra people.

She paused and told me they could eat more if we didn't. I didn't get it, but she said they were hungry, and we had food. We didn't have to eat well to eat, and if we ate well and they starved, could I really live with it?

I shut up, because no I couldn't. During their fourth month in our place, the dad found a job and so did the mom. A month after that, Nan and my mom helped them put a deposit down on a small house. Six months after they moved in with us, and two weeks before Christmas, they moved into their own place.

They were overjoyed and loved it, my parents went above and beyond to help them out. It was neat, and kind of strange. They went from living out of their car to having a nice house--hell it was nicer than our place. The dad's job paid real well. Suddenly they had two cars and more stuff. Then they didn't have time for us, and one day, they simply weren't in our lives anymore.

They never gave my grandmother a dime back of any of the money she helped them out with. They changed their phone number and by Easter of the following year, we never saw them again. The next summer we were on the road, and I made a casual remark when we stopped at the next rest stop that I hoped they didn't have any strays there. I didn't have much of a Christmas the previous year, and I'd had to share all my stuff and my parents lost money to help out this family and now they couldn't be bothered.

Nan pulled the car over, turned around and stared at me, then she said, "If you help anyone because you expect to be rewarded then you aren't helping them, you're helping yourself. If you don't help someone, because you're afraid of them or afraid of what they'd do, you're a sad person. Someday, that family will help someone else, and those people will help other people. We don't help them because we expect to get something back, we help them because we're human and too many people walk away. Too many people forget it could be them. If you remember nothing else, remember this--charity is the act of being kind to everyone--not just those you like or those who are like you."

"But what if they don't help anyone else? What if they are more interested in themselves than doing the right thing?"

My grandmother shrugged. "I don't live my life based on what someone else might do. I live it doing what I know is right and helping someone in need is right. I saw enough hate and loss in the war. If I can do something for someone else, then I will damn well do it."

My grandmother was right. Then again, she was right about a great many things. If I can do something for someone else, I will damn well do it. I've been helped when I was desperate and near losing everything. I've seen people turn their backs and get butthurt because I didn't recover as fast as they deemed I should. I've seen people come and go in my life. It's not about repayment. It's not about getting something back.

 It's about doing the right thing. Think about it.

Thanks.

Throwback Thursday: Marine Under the Mistletoe #HolidayRomance #MarineRomance



 No, it’s not a recipe for how to get a Marine under the mistletoe precisely, however, at one point in the book Rowan is baking cracker crack for the coven feast.

I warn you, there is a reason I call this crack J 

Ingredients: 
1 package saltine crackers
1 cup brown sugar
2 bars of unsalted butter
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips


Step 1
Line cookie pan with tin foil and preheat oven to 350 degrees i

Step 2

Step 4

Step 5
Sprinkle 2 cups of chocolate chips evenly over top of whole pan. Put back into oven until chocolate is almost melted (~2 minutes) i

Step 6
Spread chocolate evenly with a spatula. Refrigerate overnight. Break into pieces and enjoy i


Enjoy Marine Under the Mistletoe with cracker crack this holiday season!




He used to believe in magic… 

Kaiden Nelson looked like every other Marine, only most of his guys didn’t grow up in a family of nudists, celebrating the wheel of the year and the lunar cycles. His buddies wouldn’t name him a witch, either. But after more than a decade at war, Kaiden isn’t sure he can—or even wants to lay claim to that calling anymore. He’s got too much blood on his hands and he’s tired…tired of war, tired of fighting. Some days…he’s tired of living. When he’s sent on leave for the holidays, he’s unsure if he can ever really go home again. 

She’s a candle in the night… 


Rowan Harper lives in two worlds, the mundane where she handles tech issues for a major corporation and the pagan where she celebrates the sabbats and esbats with her coven. Like so many in the region, she keeps her beliefs private. It makes life more bearable from others who would judge, and she likes nothing better than the great sabbat retreats the coven takes to the sprawling Lake House. It’s a time where she sheds the shackles of everyday life and embraces the divine. 

The wheel turns…


When Kaiden turns up at the coven Yule, his Circle of family and friends are eager to welcome him. He feels unworthy of the open warmth and shies away to the darkness, but Rowan refuses to leave him in the shadows. Can the inexorable pull of one woman help him face down his demons as they hold vigil against the longest night of the year?
