Guest Post: HelenKay Dimon author of We’ll Be Home For Christmas & Giveaway!

ROL Guest Post Canvas


Hello, Fellow Readers! Please join me in welcoming, HelenKay Dimon to the blog! Today she brings her book, We’ll Be Home For Christmas and a post about heroes. Helen is also running a giveaway. Enjoy!


No man likes having his bedroom skills described as forgettable, but that's just what Lila Payne does when she runs into Spencer Thomas again. When she discovers that he'd lied about his name during their brief three-day romp a few months before, she's so angry that she pretends she doesn't remember him.

Spence regrets his deception, but not as much as he regrets that their time together didn't last longer. When she shows up in his town, looking to revitalize her uncle's mountain resort, Spence is determined to help. Maybe rescuing Lila from a hopeless renovation project will get him in her good graces—and back in her bed.

Lila has no interest in being rescued, and Spence is insulted by her stubborn rebuffs and her "faulty" memory. But when rehab work turns into an after-hours meeting, the two of them are in for a night that just might prove unforgettable…

Thank you for having me here today to talk about my newest release, WE'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS. The book just came out and I'm really excited about it. It's the third in my "Holloway" series, which references the fictional town where the book is set, Holloway, West Virginia.

A reader asked me today if I ever thought about writing cowboys. I'm going to be honest, I don’t know a thing about cowboys. I love reading the books. I love the sort of rough-and-tumble, hardworking type of hero. It's not that I never thought of writing a cowboy, I'm just not sure what the story could be because that world is pretty far removed from what I know.

But the question did get me thinking. Is a cowboy really that different from an undercover agent or a businessman? I know every hero is different based on the history, personality and life you give him, but I'm thinking all of these guys – along with police, first responders, etc – share certain characteristics, or could. They are strong, competent, complex, decent and flawed. A guy can do whatever for a living and still have these sort of bone-deep traits.

In WE'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, my hero Spence is a very smart (like off-the-charts IQ smart) guy who runs a business, works outside and is very complex. He doesn't ride horses or work with animals. He does know about trees, and commitment to family and the need to break his back to keep a company going. And, frankly, he's clueless about woman. Oh, he knows what to do with them. He just isn’t sure how to keep one. Seems to me, cowboy or not, that works for any hero.  :)
