Enjoy a Sizzling-Hot, Suspenseful Holiday with HelenKay Dimon

When I dream of Christmas, I dream of many things. And sometimes I dream of movies that open with Christmas scenes, especially suspense movies like Die Hard or Lethal Weapon—remember the Christmas tree lot scene in Lethal Weapon—the one where you first realized that Mel Gibson had serious mental health issues? No wait—that was his character, Martin Riggs.

This sort of holiday reverie usually puts me in the mood for a good romantic suspense novel, preferably one written by HelenKay Dimon. Like the two books below, which deserve a place in your ereader or under your tree this year!

Merry Christmas and happy reading, Jillian Stone

Some people disappear against their will. Emery’s job is to find them and bring closure. Wren is the only person who can help solve Emery’s own personal mystery: the long-ago disappearance of her cousin. Just tracking down the sexy, brooding Wren is difficult enough.

Anonymity is essential to Wren’s success, yet drawn by Emery’s loyalty and sensuality, he’s pulled out of the shadows. But her digging is getting noticed by the wrong people. And as the clues start to point to someone terrifyingly close, Wren will have to put his haunted past aside to protect the woman he loves.

  1. Welcome back to GLIAS, HelenKay! I guess I have this thing about Christmas scenes. Somehow they seem up the emotional tension—especially for romance and action suspense stories. Love the way the Christmas Party sets up the chaos and mayhem to come in Die Hard.

  2. WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME, my friend !!

  3. Have enjoyed your books over the years.
    I really don't remember what book it was from, an historical western I read several years ago. A women and her children had very little, but what they did have was love. They made decorations with what little they had and hunkered down when a storm moved in. She made gifts they needed (gloves, socks) from what she had. Of course, the hero shows up Christmas Eve with game he had killed for Christmas dinner. The important point being what we really need and appreciate is a gift given from the heart, no matter what it is. Fancy decorations don't make a holiday better. Some of the ones we most appreciate are the ones we made as a family or the children made when they were little.
