Blurb
Christmas is dying. 
 
The last Santa Claus had triplets who each inherited a portion of his father’s power, and that split is now tearing apart the soul of Christmas. 
 
Niccolo Vecchio, the eldest, has fortified the North Pole into a citadel of ice and metal. 
 
Santini, the middle brother, is in hiding somewhere in the Mediterranean. 
 
The youngest brother, Niccolo Piccolo, is raising legions to reclaim his inheritance. 
 
Two of the triplets will have to renounce their claim in the next forty-eight hours, or this Christmas will be the last one ever. 
 
And it’s up to Adam, underachieving teenager sub-ordinaire, and his brand new jock bully Zach to make that happen…

Trouble has a new Name – New book release by Adite Banerjie

Dear friend and Harlequin author Adite Banerjie has a new release by the exciting name of Trouble Has A New Name.  Here are the details. Check out this book which promises to be another exciting read by this author.

 

Trouble Has A New Name by Adite Banerjie

Blurb:

Will you pretend to be my fiancé for the next few days?

Recently single model RaynaDutt does not feel like flying to her friend’s big fat Indian wedding. But she does—and when a mix-up with room allocation forces her to share a luxury villa on Emerald Isle with the gorgeous owner of the hotel Neel Arora, best man at the wedding, things begin to look up.

Until Rayna’s ex turns up with a new girl on his arm!

Hitting the panic button, Rayna searches for a solution. Surely Neel wouldn’t mind being her fake fiancé…? In an instant the attraction they share is at fever-pitch, but when scandal comes calling Rayna soon finds herself in more trouble than she can handle!

 

Excerpt:

He smiled enigmatically, ‘I’m reconsidering your proposal.’

‘Oh!’

His words took her completely by surprise. Did he mean it? Nah! He’s just toying with you!

‘Suddenly you no longer have a problem being a boy toy?’ She wished she could take the words back. ‘Sorry, I shouldn’t have said that.’

The cold look in his eyes and the awkward silence that followed made her jittery.

‘My brother always says I have this annoying habit of shooting my mouth off. I guess it will be best if I leave now.’

As she made to get off the parapet, he put his arm around her waist and practically lifted her off. She pushed against him and felt the hard planes of his chest through his jacket, but he held her close. Heat slithered in her veins. His breath fanned the hair on her forehead and her own turned shallow. The blood pounded in her ears as she stole a quick look and stopped short at the hot intensity of his gaze. His eyes were focused on her glossy parted lips. He drew his thumb softly over her cheek and her heart tripped a beat before increasing its pace. She was fused to the spot, rooted by his touch, his gaze. She involuntarily leaned a little closer to him. Her lips were a heartbeat away from his.

His breath was on her lips as he whispered in a husky voice, ‘Your brother should have warned you… you get burnt if you play with fire.’ And then he let her go.
