About the Book….



Tis the night before Christmas and all through the house is the presence of one wickedly hot cowboy who’s come to stay for the holiday. Fiona Logan is downright shocked to return to her childhood home and find that the tall blond stranger who came to her rescue on an icy road will be sleeping just across the hall from her bedroom. Talk about temptation . . .

Jud Dawson never believed the Lucky Penny Ranch would live up to its name until now. Fiona is gorgeous, smart, funny, and everything he thought he’d never find. Now all he has to do is convince her to stick around town instead of hightailing it back to Houston. But with wild weather, nosy neighbors, and a new baby in the family, getting her to admit that she’s falling in love might just take a Christmas miracle.

Author Bio:
Descended from a long line of storytellers, Jacki spins adventures filled with mystery, healing and romance.

Jacki’s love affair with the arts began at a young age and inspired her to train as a jazz singer and dancer. She has performed many acting roles with Seattle Opera Company and Pacific Northwest Ballet.

Her travels to London and Paris ignited a deep-seated passion to write the romantic, regency The Code Breaker Series. Jacki is certain she spent at least one lifetime dancing in the Moulin Rouge.

Jacki has set her Grayce Walters Mystery Series in Seattle, her long-time home. The city’s unique and colorful locations are a backdrop for her romantic mystery.

Although writing now fills much of her day, she continues to volunteer for Seattle’s Ballet and Opera Companies and leads children’s tours of Pike Street Market. Her volunteer work with Seattle’s homeless shelters influenced one of her main characters in An Inner Fire and Women Under Fire.

Jacki’s two Golden Labs, Gus and Talley, were her constant companions. Their years of devotion and intuition inspired her to write both dogs as heroes in each series.

A geek at heart, Jacki loves superhero movies–a hero’s battle against insurmountable odds. But her heroines don’t have to wear a unitard to fight injustice and battle for the underdog.

Look for more heart-pounding adventure, intrigue, and romance in A Code of the Heart—A Regency Novella, next in the Code Breaker Series, to be released on Valentine’s Day, 2015.

A Christmas Code

Book Blurb:
Lady Gwyneth Beaumont has long awaited the opportunity to show Viscount James Ashworth that she is no longer the impetuous child who dogged his footsteps. Now a much sought-after debutante, she is determined to prove to the hard-headed rake that she is a grown woman and a worthy participant in both the spy game and the game of love.

Ash, recently returned from three years undercover in France in His Majesty’s service, wants nothing more than to complete his final mission and retire to his bucolic country estate. However, what seemed a simple assignment to protect the Prince Regent at a Christmas party turns into a maze of intrigue, desire, and treachery.

Adding to the perilous secret operation is one problem Ash never anticipated: The appearance of the reckless, enticing Gwyneth, who has blossomed into a gorgeous woman and self-appointed spy. When a snooping Gwyneth uncovers a shocking secret, she puts herself in mortal danger.

Can Ash protect Gwyneth and the Prince from French assailants and, at the same time, win the passionate lady’s heart?

Can Ash and Gwyneth both triumph as winners in the game of spies and love?

STARS, STOCKINGS, & SHEPHERDS by Shersta Chabot is an meaningful Christmas traditions/Holiday symbols. What a delightful as well as educational book. The illustrations are by Corey Egbert and they are fantastic.

I had forgot a lot of the symbols of the Christmas season meanings, how very sad for me. Some I knew, such as the Candy Cane, The Wise Men, Jesus, and many more. The author has done an exceptional job of the definitions, explanations, and the meaning of Christmas. I loved this book. Easy to read, easy to follow. Young readers may need a bit of help reading, but I feel they will delight with this book. The pictures are vivid, and exciting.

A keeper for any library and true treasure for your holiday reading. Did you know…the meaning of the Christmas Lights? or the meaning of the Christmas Tree? Wreaths? or Carols? Well these and so many more symbols are explained. I would highly recommend this title to anyone who enjoys the Christmas season, and all the dressing pertaining to the Christmas season. Every parent, grandparent, church teacher really should get this title. Well done!!

Now, within further ado presenting Victoria James….

MBA&M: Good morning, Victoria! Welcome to My Book Addiction and More.

[VJ] Hi, thanks so much for having me here today!

Please give our readers some insight into Victoria James?

[VJ] I met my husband thirteen years ago in University-in an English Lit class.  Two years later we got married, and now we have two children-a two year old and a six year old.  My days are busy juggling the responsibilities of our small business, my writing, kids, and household chores. But when I have a free moment, I’m putting my interior design background to use-I’m always rearranging furniture and pictures in our house.  I still do freelance work as well. I love seasonal decorating.  Basically, I drive my husband nuts, because he hates change…and thing are always changing!

MBA&M: Where did your inspiration for “The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby” come from?

[VJ] I live in Canada, and growing up I adored our snowy winters and white Christmases.  I knew I always wanted to be a writer, so writing a book that was set in a remote, snow-filled area during the holidays was too hard to resist…

A few years ago, surrounded by my extended family, I started wondering about how much of whom I was today, was shaped by the people around me.  I had always known the love of parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, cousins.  But what if I hadn’t?  How would that have changed me?  And that thought triggered the characters in THE BILLIONAIRE’S CHRISTMAS BABY.  How would different people react to the holidays if they didn’t have a family?  If they had no one?  Would they build walls around themselves?  Or would they be in a perpetual search for a soul-mate, for love?  The hero and heroine that took shape in my mind became larger than life.  Their pain, their need for acceptance and unconditional love tugged at my heartstrings until I was forced to find a way to create a happily-ever-after for the three of them!  And of course, it would have to take place during the holidays! 

MBA&M: What do you feel the allure of contemporary romance is to readers?

[VJ]I think it’s that we can relate to them easily.  Contemporary romance deals with characters that we can identify with, that are similar to our everyday friends and family members.  The issues in contemporary romance are also identifiable.  I think we can derive comfort from knowing that there are others who are going through the same things, people who’ve loved and lost and have come out on the other side. 

MBA&M: Who was your favorite character in “The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby”?

[VJ]Well, as much as I loved writing Hannah, I think Jackson is my favorite J  His journey and the evolution of his character from beginning to end tugged at my heartstrings.  Hmm…Maybe this means I have a crush on Jackson Pierce!

MBA&M What scene stands out the most to you?

[VJ]When Hannah thanks Jackson, after their wedding.  I loved writing this scene because it evolved so naturally-she’s about to make a sarcastic comment in order to keep her distance from Jackson, but instead she is overcome by everything he has done for her.  She thanks him and I think it’s a turning point for Hannah-she’s finally letting him in.  And of course Jackson is surprised by her candor…and well, one thing leads to another…;-)


Victoria, since the Christmas holiday is upon us, let’s talk Christmas…..

MBA&M: What are some of your favorite Christmas things?

[VJ]“Raindrops on roses and…” Sorry, I couldn’t help it!  Some of my favorites are spending extra time with family and friends.  The decorating, the hustle and bustle at the mall, the pure, uninhibited excitement children have over Christmas.  The giving, the extra effort we put into helping those less fortunate.  The time we make to remember all our blessings.

MBA&M: What are your favorite Christmas songs?

[VJ]I love the classics-The Christmas Song, I’ll be home for Christmas, I’m dreaming of a White Christmas…

But I do have some contemporary favorites…I love everything from Sarah Mclachlan-especially Wintersong.  I love The Pretenders’ Two thousand Miles, Tom Cochrane’s Christmas all the Time.

MBA&M: What are a few of your family’s traditions?

[VJ]Growing up in a North-American-Italian family, the holidays were always filled with an abundance of family, food, and drama.  Cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, would gather.  The crowd was loud and the toasts with homemade wine were plenty.

This year, I’m hosting Christmas Eve dinner for approximately fifteen of our nearest and dearest.  I have hosted Christmas Eve before, but I haven’t done the full-blown deal.  This year, I’m going to cook up a big old, traditional Italian Christmas Eve dinner.  All seven fish dishes.  I can do it…I hope!  The day after I told my husband my plan?  He bought a fire extinguisher. 


MBA&M: If you could be anywhere this holiday season where would it be and why? 

[VJ]Anywhere with snow and my family!!  I’m not one of those people who want to escape the cold for the hot, sunny beach.  It’s not Christmas without subzero temps, and a blanket of the white stuff.  I’m a true Canadian girl, I guess!

Thank you for visiting with us and our readers, with Christmas just around the corner we wish you and your family a very MERRY CHRISTMAS…..

Thank you so much for having me, this has been fun!!  Merry Christmas to all of you as well!



The Billionaire’s Christmas Baby:
Jackson Pierce didn’t make his fortune entertaining every half-cocked idea, especially one involving diaper changes. Not even the cute brunette who links him to the baby in her arms can crack his icy heart.
A baby on the doorsteps is the least of Hannah Woods problems–she has to find the baby’s uncle, or the child will end up in foster care. She sleuths her way to the reclusive CEO’s doorstep only to find six feet of holiday sexy–and a door slammed in her face. But when Jackson comes around, and urges they marry for little Emily’s sake, Hannah finds herself falling for the jaded billionaire and wishing for a holiday miracle of their own…

Robert Reed gave his life for his country in the early days of World War II. His sacrifice was honored when his widow and son were presented with the Congressional Medal of Honor. Each Christmas the final decoration Madge Reed hangs on the family’s tree is that medal. Rather than being a symbol of honor for young Jimmy Reed that shining star represents loss, pain, and suffering.

Yet a letter delivered by one of Robert’s fellow soldiers and a mystery posed in that letter put a father’s sacrifice and faith into perspective and bring new meaning to not just the star hanging on the Christmas tree but the events of the very first Christmas. Then, when least expected, a Christmas miracle turns a final bit of holiday sadness into a joy that Jimmy has never known.
