The Christmas Calamity by Shanna Hatfield: Release Blitz & Giveaway
When Special Agent Finnegan O’Reilly gets shot, and the news brings on his father’s heart attack, he decides to cut out the undercover assignments for a while. The O’Reilly has suffered enough and Finn can’t be the cause of more. Then his boss forces him to take on one more case. Playing a role right in their own pub to expose the serial, suicide killers rampaging New York City, he’s to be their next target. His part – to be a married man who cheats on his wife – seems more like real life than playacting.
Renée Knight has no scruples when on the job as a New York City cop. Her disguises have become a permanent fixture in her life, and no one really knows her except for the father she loves fiercely. The man whose suicide she doesn’t accept nor will she leave alone. If it means going undercover in a pub where the killers hang out, she’s their girl. If it means playing the wife of the pub owner, no problem. But they never intended for her to fall for this guy, she does this all on her own. Now she has to hire the killers to arrange his suicide. And catch them before they carry it out.

My husband is supportive, drags me out to feed me and plans occasional forays into the outside world. I have a son who makes me happy I was born a woman so I could be his mom, and a niece whose family adds to my full cup of happiness.”

Dependable and solid, Arlan Guthry relishes his orderly life as a banker’s assistant in Hardman, Oregon.
His uncluttered world spins off kilter when the beautiful and enigmatic prestidigitator Alexandra Janowski arrives in town, spinning magic and trouble in her wake as the holiday season approaches.
Entranced by the way her mouth moved as she spoke, Arlan didn’t realize he leaned closer until Alex stopped talking and released a sigh.
“Arlan, don’t you think…”
“Yes, I do.” He set down his coffee cup and rose to his feet, pulling Alex up next to him. Gently tracing his thumb across her bottom lip, he watched her eyes flutter closed and listened to her draw in a ragged breath.
“Alex, please, may I kiss you?” He thought he’d die if she said no. Every nerve, every muscle, every ounce of blood pumping rapidly through his veins wanted to taste her lips, savor their velvety softness moving against his own.
“Arlan…” She raised her gaze to his. The wanting in her eyes was undeniable, but she stepped back from him. “As much as I want to say yes, I have to say no. I refuse to come between you and Miss Bevins. It wouldn’t be right or fair.”
“There is no me and Miss Bevins. In fact, I wrote her a letter today making that point abundantly clear.” Arlan moved until he stood with the toes of his boots disappearing beneath the hem of Alex’s skirt.
“But I’ve heard you whispering her name over and over, like a chant or something. I know you love her, and I won’t do this.” Alex backed up until she bumped into the wall.
Arlan wasted no time in closing the space between them. He raised his hand to her face again, trailing his index finger across her smooth cheek and along her jaw. “If you heard me whispering her name, it was in a futile effort to remind myself of her. You see, I tend to forget she even exists whenever I think of you.”
