Celebrating A Hot New Holiday Romance From Tim Smith

Today we are celebrating a hot holiday romance from author Tim Smith and eXtasy Books called MISTLETOE AND PALM TREES.

Tim is the author of five novels, including two contemporary romantic comedies with eXtasy Books. His first three adventure novels have won critical acclaim and several awards. He is also a freelance photographer and works in Dayton, Ohio as a case manager for adults with special needs. When he isn't devoting time to writing, you can find him in The Florida Keys, doing research in between parasailing and seeking out the perfect Pina Colada.



Christmas in Key Largo, Florida...palm trees, bright blue waters, tropical temperatures and two people feeling the sting of a bad break-up. When Tom McCoy fled there to forget his latest romantic debacle, the last person he expected to meet was beautiful Brooke Devlin, who is trying to heal from a mishap of her own. Their mutual attraction is strong, but is it real or just rebound? Will their holiday affair last beyond checkout time, or become the stuff Spring breaks are made of?

  5. Estella, this is my fourth book set in Florida - my three romantic intrigue print novels are set in Key Largo, but my two previous romances were set in my hometown of Dayton, Ohio. Talk about a challenge, making Dayton come off as romantic! LOL

  9. I really enjoyed the excerpt and yes the cover is beautiful, especially as I sit here and watch the snow fly past my window ;-(

    I'm not sure I've read many romances written by men at least that actually had a happy ever after ending, what made you decide to write romance?
