Review & Guest Post with author of Santa to the Rescue, Adele Downs!


Down’s Santa to the Rescue is a beautifully written, heartwarming tale of love during the holidays. This story surrounds itself with Firefighter Jamey Tucker and the woman he meets, pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst in the grocery store. Jamey always knew how women should be treated and he never vowed to hurt someone. When he meets Heather, he makes a promise that later he finds out is on a late shift at the firehouse. Heather’s been hurt by other men before and so when she meets Jamey, she thinks its all over, but when he calls to cancel, her world changes. Jamey is determined to make it up to her and he will, but I don’t want to give it away. Lets just say Santa always gives miracles! Those who love romance added with the magic of the holidays will enjoy this read!

Christmas will be here before we know it! Firefighter Jamey Tucker, hero of SANTA TO THE RESCUE, makes Mint Margaritas for Heather Longhurst, the pediatric nurse who wins his heart, because she loves peppermint and candy canes and all things Christmas. Enjoy this fun recipe for the holidays courtesy of Sauza® Tequila. Posted with permission. Cheers!










1 bunch of fresh mint*

3 tbsp. sugar

1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)

6 parts tequila

2 cups club soda


salt to rim

extra mint leaves to garnish

To Make:

In a small pitcher, muddle together the mint leaves, sugar and lime juice until they start to melt together. Add your Sauza® Silver Tequila. Fill 4 glasses with ice and pour cocktail mixture 3/4 of the way to the top of each glass. If you want, rim your glasses with salt by rubbing the rims with a lime wedge and dipping in a plate of salt. Fill each glass with club soda and garnish with an extra sprig of mint. Salud!


*Fresh peppermint or spearmint are easy to find at the grocery, but if you can find it, try Mexican Marigold Mint which also has pretty little yellow buttercup-like flowers.

A sweet firefighter contemporary romance novella

New Release! An Entangled Publishing Flirt




Firefighter Jamey Tucker knows three things in life to be true: An honorable man doesn’t go back on his word, never hurts a woman, and lasting love isn’t a myth. But with his recent move to a new job at the Appleton Fire station, the long hours don’t offer hope of finding the love he’s looking for.

When Jamey meets beautiful pediatric nurse Heather Longhurst after hearing her sing Santa Baby in a supermarket aisle, he offers her a promise he discovers he can’t keep. Heather has been betrayed by men in the past, making it hard for Jamey to gain her trust. Determined to find a way to win her heart, Jamey uses firefighter engine-uity and Heather’s favorite song to prove he’s got Christmas spirit she can believe in all year.

Jamey Tucker unfastened his helmet, lifted his facemask and tugged off his fire retardant gloves before gulping half a liter of water. He could almost hear the liquid sizzle against his throat, much like the smoldering embers behind him turned to sodden ash.


He held out the cup to the volunteer rescue worker manning the drinking water. “More.” That simple word was as much as he could manage. After chugging down a refill, moisture returned to his mouth and tongue. He licked his lips and released a satisfied sigh. All he needed was a hot shower and some chow to feel human again. “Thanks, man.”


“No problem. Merry Christmas, Jamey.”


“Yeah. You too.” The last thing on his mind was Christmas.


He stunk like a chimney after fighting a fire ‘till dawn. Dumb kids and their vacant warehouse rave had caused their team hours of gut wrenching work. Luckily, no one died.


Though the crew decorated the firehouse with lights and garland, and set up the tree a week ago, Christmas spirit had failed to find him. Loneliness could do that to the new guy in town, not that he’d admit that to anyone. He’d cut his heart out first.

  • Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to
