Mistle Tow by H K Carlton


     Thank you so much for hosting, Reily! Wishing you and your readers all the blessings of the season. 
 
     I’m excited the share my first holiday story entitled Mistle Tow. But be forewarned, if you’re looking for a mushy sentimental, carol-filled, tree-trimming, tinsel clinging, twinkling lights and sweet togetherness kind of story, that’s not what this is. 

     It’s really only a holiday story in the sense that it takes place over the Christmas season. It's about a man trying to move on with his life and avoiding the holidays altogether. 



Mistle Tow by H K Carlton Erotic, Contemporary, Seasonal Romance Evernight Publishing Release Date December 16th


 Blurb:
      The last thing Brantley Holley wants to do this year, is spend the holidays at home with his family. In an attempt to move on from his failed marriage, Brant places the marital home on the market and also decides to clean house, ridding himself of any and all reminders.           

     Although it wrecks him to do so, that includes selling his beloved ’66 Chevelle, which may also have contributed to the demise of his marriage. Brant puts his baby up on the auction block at one of the premier auction houses— the auction to be held over the holidays. 

     But instead of racking up needless extra miles on her, which might be a detriment to potential buyers, he hires a flatbed tow truck to convey his precious cargo from Philadelphia to Arizona. 

     But when the rollback shows up, Brant is totally unprepared for the sexy blonde bombshell in the red Santa hat, who steps out of the massive red tow truck. All of a sudden the holidays are looking a whole lot more festive.

Excerpt:
      Brant Holley wiped down the hood of his precious ‘66 Chevelle. The glossy black finish gleamed even under the dull fluorescent lights in the garage. Off in the distance, in the house, the phone rang, but he made no attempt to get it. Eventually, the answering machine picked up.
  
 “Brant? It’s Mom. Are you there?” After a long drawn out sigh, a sound he was very familiar with, she continued. “I thought I’d try one last time. I’m really hoping you reconsider joining us for Christmas dinner. I know things are … strained…” 

      “Pfft. Strained? Ya think, Ma?” “Between you, your brother, and Haylee at the moment.” Brant hopped in the car and cranked the engine, blocking his mother and everything else out. His baby roared to life. He pressed the accelerator and gave it a couple of quick shots of the gas pedal, enjoying the sound of the guttural revs. “Man you sound pretty, baby. I’m sure gonna miss this.” 
     
     Covetously, he ran his fingertips over the black dash, polished to the nines. On the spur of the moment, he hit the remote tucked in the visor above his head. Automatically the garage door began to rise. He popped the car in gear and slowly drove outside. Normally he wouldn’t even consider driving his car at this time of the year. Generally she was tucked away from the end of October until the first of May. 
     
     His Chelle had never been winter driven. At least not since she’d come into his tender care. Brant eased out onto the road, dumped the clutch and squealed the tires the entire length of the quiet neighborhood street.
