Santa's List: Sasha Summers

Jen’s only Christmas wish
Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she loves that he has no idea who her alter-ego is: Jen Fleming, Hollywood bad-girl and paparazzi target number one. Why ruin an amazing affair when he’s leaving after the new year?

But the closer they get, the harder she falls, and the more she wants to tell Gunner everything. Especially once he shares his secret with her.

Jen's new Christmas wish
Gunner accepts and loves her for who she really is.

“My name’s Gunner.” His arm tightened a little. His hand rested on my back, warm and solid. “Gunner Foster.”
“Gunner?” I didn’t look up or open my eyes, but murmured against him, “I’m Jenny.” I drew in a deep breath. He smelled as good as he looked. The plane, the small cabin, the dinging sounds weren’t bad—well, not too bad.
His heartbeat was strong beneath my ear, but I heard him murmur, “Nice to meet you.”
“Is it?” I giggled, shaking my head. “You don’t mind some strange woman clawing her way into your lap?”
“Happens all the time.”
I looked up then, laughing. I couldn’t help it.
He started laughing too, his smile going wide and his dimples peeking out of his sun-bronzed face. His eyes met mine as he said, “Something about the dimples and the haircut, I guess.”
“It doesn’t hurt.” I moved back a little, not enough to make him move his arm, though. Not yet. It…he…felt nice, comforting. “First time home in a while?”
“Almost four years.”
“Wow. That’s a long time. No wonder your mom is looking forward to having you home.” I paused. “Talk about a Christmas present they’ll never forget.”
He shrugged, his hand sliding up my back to rest on my shoulder. “I’ve missed them.”
I nodded. “Sure.”
He was watching me. And I smiled at him a little. Poor guy. I wouldn’t want to sit by me. I mean, who would? It wasn’t exactly the way a person wanted to kick off the holidays—strapped into a flying missile next to a lunatic. My eyes traveled over his face, knowing I needed to pull it together, to apologize or something. But he didn’t look upset. He looked…concerned.
So he was sweet and hot. And he smelled incredible. This might not be the worst flight of my life.  

Sasha Summers, 
behind the scene star. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, and travel. It's no surprise that her books visit times past, set in places rich with legends and myth. Her first play, 'Greek Gods and Goddesses' (original title, right?), was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she's doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.

SANTA: Do you believe in Santa Claus? 

SANTA: What’s your favorite Holiday Movie?
SASHA: I have several really – but ELF and The Christmas Story are pretty much tied for the number 1 spot. J It’s a Wonderful Life is up there too. So is Love Actually and The Holiday!

SANTA: What’s your favorite Holiday cartoon special?
SASHA: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer – though I guess it’s really stop-motion versus animations, huh? Oh well, it’s my favorite!

SANTA:Which Holiday film can you watch over and over without falling asleep?
SASHA:  ELF. I laugh every single time!

SANTA:What’s your favorite movie blooper?
SASHA: Hmmm… I’m not sure I have one. I love bloopers though – if there’s a blooper reel, it’s must watch!

SANTA: Tragic Love Story or Romantic Comedy?
SASHA: That’s totally depends on my mood. I love both!

SANTA: What is your favorite Holiday tradition?
SASHA: Baking and decorating cookies with my kids. We have a ball and end up on a major sugar high J Good times!

SANTA: Do you keep up with your favorite hot guys from Hollywood?
SASHA: Maybe ;) I don’t like to think of myself as a stalker, but I admit to checking up on my favorite Hollywood men-folk (Chris Hemsworth) from time to time.

SANTA’S GOTTA ASK: What's your favorite Hollywood love scene and what drew you into the characters?
SASHA’S GOTTA ANSWER:  Oh WOW Angi! Um, there are so many wonderful love scenes out there. A few recent stand-outs would be Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid, Love… Classic love scene – It’s A Wonderful Life – the phone, Mary & George, his anger, the kiss – here, you have to see it… The tension is soooo awesome.

Frank Capra's
It's a Wonderful Life

  3. I would like some books. I have a long list of books I want to read. Merry Christmas.


  4. Well, I'd REALLY like Chris Hemsworth for Christmas, but seeing as he has his own family, I guess I'll let him go. Other than that, I'd like money to put toward an e-reader.

  6. Welcome Back, Sasha !!
