Secret Santa Baby picIt’s the Friday before Christmas and the lovely Robin Covington is here to discuss her second book – “Secret Santa Baby” from Entangled Publishing.

CABR: Welcome back to Caribbean Accent Book Reviews Robin. 😀

RC: Thank you! It’s great to be back!

CABR: What’s your favourite scene in Secret Santa Baby and why?

RC: I think my favorite scene is when Nick serenades Tessa at the office holiday party. He’s conservative, reserved…he’s British. So, it is absolutely the one thing you would never expect him to do.  I loved writing that scene!

CABR: I understand the game Secret Santa is big at your day job. Did any funny or odd gifts from that inspire one in “SSB”?

RC: No – the big gifts at my office party are Snuggies (ugh), giftcards, and booze – pretty mundane stuff.  The gifts in SSB are more sentimental, romantic and personalized. Nick definitely put a lot of thought into what he gave to Tessa – they were all from the heart.

CABR: Aww – gifts from the heart. After hearing about Entangled Publishing’s call for short stories inspired by the song ‘Santa Baby’, did Nick or Tessa ‘pop’ into your head, demanding their story be told?

RCRC: Yes, they did.  I love the song and when I saw the call the Secret Santa game immediately jumped into my mind.

What if someone used the Secret Santa game to seduce the woman of his dreams by giving her the gifts in the song?

I knew that the hero , Nick, was someone who didn’t bend the rules normally, but for this he was going to go all out.

CABR: This is your first novella correct? Can we expect more from you in the coming months or are you back to work on ‘The Boys’ from the Southern series (“A Night of Southern Comfort“)?

RC: Yes, it is.  I loved writing it and I think I will do more in the future. I’m tossing around some ideas about a series of novellas based around an exclusive boarding school. We’ll see . . .  I am finishing a super sexy story for the Brazen line at Entangled (the hero is an action movie star-swoon) and then I finish Teague’s story for the The Boys series.  His life is taking some unexpected turns . . . poor Teague.

CABR: I bet Teague’s story will be well worth the wait. 🙂 What’s your favourite part about Christmas/the holidays?

RC: My favorite part is the decorations at my house. I have three Christmas trees, garland and white lights everywhere. It looks like a Christmas fairyland in every room – so romantic too!

Secret Santa Baby picBlurb for Secret Santa Baby

Tessa Stoneman hasn’t been able to get long-time friend and business partner Nicholas Boone out of her head since they shared a single kiss in college. Even when she dated Nicholas’s best friend. Now that she’s giving up her position at GameNerdz to strike out on her own—and now that she’s single—maybe it’s the right time to see if there’s still something between them.

Nicholas knows once Tessa leaves the company she helped found, they might drift apart. Before she starts her own company in the new year, he wants to woo the woman he fell in love with during college. So he poses as her Secret Santa, gifts her with items from the song “Santa Baby,” and plans a big reveal at the company holiday party. But when his best friend wants to rekindle his romance with Tessa, will Nicholas lose his last chance?

A Night of Southern Comfort“, her best-selling debut was nominated by RT Book Reviews for the 2012 Best Contemporary Romance from an Indie Press for bringing a “fresh, modern feel to the genre while still sticking to the things that get our adrenaline pumping — sex and danger”.

When she’s not exploring the theme of fooling around and falling in love, she’s collecting tasty man candy, indulging in a little comic book geek love, and stalking Joe Mangianello.
