As our Treasure Hunt continues celebrating our 2nd Anniversary, we thought it would be fun to divulge what some of our characters would give each other for either Christmas or their second anniversary. (Details about the Treasure Hunt and giveaway are below.)
COUPLE: Aidan and Rachel, FRACTURED PARADISE
GIFT: Rachel would give Aidan a framed picture of his favorite spot in Cornwall, England, and he would give her a mini-replica of Penshaw Monument.
TREASURE HUNT: NaNo Web Badges
COUPLE: Levi & Jo, DANGEROUS MEMORIES
GIFT: Dancing Boots to each other, you can find out why in the book.
TREASURE HUNT: CRYSTAL NECKLACE
GIFT: For their second anniversary, Mel would give Joe a pink pair of handcuffs for evening activities and a slight slice of revenge, and Joe would give Melanie the Teresa Alder vase he was too broke to buy her during their "courtship." That or one of his mother's clocks from Bravaria, Germany. Joe always likes to have a backup plan.
TREASURE HUNT: Angi & Donnell's Picture
COUPLE: Emma and Derick, SWEET DECEPTION
GIFT: Emma would give Derick a new, framed map of Derbyshire, to replace the one she scribbled all over--twice--while plotting coordinates to help catch a traitor/murderer. Derick would give Emma three sets of matching and properly sized boots and coats... (you can see why, for both, in the book!)
TREASURE HUNT: Liliana and Geoffrey's love letters to each other.
COUPLE: I have just begun the first chapter a Gentlemen of Scotland Yard novel that is a Christmas 2013 release. The hero is Detective Inspector Flynn Rhys and the heroine is Alice Armistead.
GIFT: (Shared gift) A Dragon Kiss––A kiss so flamin' hot you have to keep a pint close to put out the fire!
TREASURE HUNT: Spy Camera
COUPLE: Abby and Gray, THE RANCHER AND THE ROCK STAR
GIFT:First of all, in their stockings would be their favorite candy bars for making hot chocolate: for Abby a Cadbury Royal Dark and for Gray Hershey's Symphony bars. These two are chocolate fiends! Abby hates ostentatious gifts, but Gray never listens to her. He would give her the beautiful black and white show bridle she covets for her horse Gucci. Abby is always trying to come up with something extremely personal and then something funny. She would give him a tacky sweater that would make his fans laugh themselves silly if they saw it. Then, she would give him her latest portrait of the two of them--one she took in black and white and framed with simple elegance.
TREASURE HUNT: Picture of a moose!
COUPLE: Cinderella and Ty (it would be spoilerish to even speculate whether Glory, my heroine in Deviants, ends up with Burn or Cal.)
GIFT: A trip to a far off land
TREASURE HUNT: Name of one of Maureen's French publishers
COUPLE: Sarah and Matthew from THE HAUNTING OF MADDY CLARE
GIFT: A ghost-hunting kit
TREASURE HUNT: A picture of Sarah
COUPLE: Ha! This is tricky, because I have no idea who Liz will end up with--Michael or Nate.
GIFT: But, since Nate is also her partner, they'll celebrate Christmas by having dinner together. If Liz has her way, it will be at the Pirates' Den on Stella Maris.
