She has brought Arthur along to answer some questions!  She has also brought along two great giveaways!  Please join me in giving Heidi a big welcome!

Sleigh Ride Blog Tour

Arthur’s Guest Post and AMA

Hey there. This is Arthur Anderson, from Logan, Minnesota. You might know me from Heidi Cullinan’s novels, Let It Snow where I was a secondary character, and her most recent release, Sleigh Ride, which is my story. I know I’m biased, but let me in on a secret: mine is better, because it’s a lot steamier. Gabriel is pretty hot when he unkinks.

I’m here today, and the next couple days, to answer your questions in the comments here at Joyfully Jay. Anything you want to ask me, knock yourself out. That’s what the AMA is for. I’ve never done one, but Gabriel showed me a whole bunch on the Internet. You ask, I answer. He’s doing his on December first at Under the Covers Book Blog, but I’ll tell you this, no way in hell he’ll answer anything. He’ll be polite about it, but I can think of a lot of topics he’s going to skitter away from. Might be fun to try to find them, though.

Me, I’m an open book. I do open books now, too. I used to always say I wasn’t much of a reader, but Gabriel has taught me the right librarian can always find something you’re passionate about. I love hockey. I love hunting, and that’s gotten more fun now that I have Gabriel to feed my venison too. I like a little bit of leather, lotta bitta kink. Love my family, hoping to start one of my own before too long. I live in a cabin in the woods with the man I’m going to live happily ever after with.

I know how you readers are. You always have questions. So ask me anything. I’ll answer all the way through November 21.

Here’s all the book information, in case you need to catch up for the conversation.


Sleigh Ride

Book Two of the Minnesota Christmas Series

The way to a man’s heart is on a sleigh.

Arthur Anderson doesn’t want anything to do with love and romance, and he certainly doesn’t want to play Santa in his mother’s library fundraising scheme. He knows full well what she really wants is to hook him up with the town’s lanky, prissy librarian.

It’s clear Gabriel Higgins doesn’t want him, either—as a Santa, as a boyfriend, as anyone at all. But when Arthur’s efforts to wiggle out of the fundraiser lead to getting to know the man behind the storytime idol, he can’t help but be charmed. The least he can do is be neighborly and help Gabriel find a few local friends.

As their fiery arguments strike hotter sparks, two men who insist they don’t date wind up doing an awful lot of dating. And it looks like the sleigh they both tried not to board could send them jingling all the way to happily ever after.

Warning: Contains a feisty librarian, a boorish bear, small town politics, deer sausage, and a boy who wants a doll.
