Excerpt:

“You’re quiet all of a sudden,” Trey said.

Except for the crickets, katydids, footfalls and sounds of horse’s hooves, the country night was still. She must have given him a vibe about the decision weighing on her mind, because Trey was usually comfortable with silence. He freed his arm from hers, rubbed a hand down her spine, and made little circles with his fingertips on the small of her back. The intimate gesture raised goose bumps over her skin, yet warmed her from the inside.

“I’ve been thinking,” she said. “There’s something I want to talk to you about.”

The moon had risen, and beneath its glow and the light of a billion stars, Trey’s brow furrowed. “Sounds serious.”

Daisy nodded. “Something I want to run by you.”

Trey pressed his hand more tightly to her back. “Then I want to hear about it. Let’s take care of Big Blue and eat supper. We can relax and talk and then decorate the tree. As it happens, I have something I want to discuss with you too.”

HOOK ME UP – Another Great Review

Readers say they love my sweet but sexy firefighter romance HOOK ME UP.

Hook-Me-Up2

Firemen don’t free cats from trees anymore—until a pretty schoolteacher gets trapped on a limb with her kitten and the county’s hottest firefighter comes to their rescue.

Praise for Hook Me Up:

“Hook Me Up by Adele Downs warmed my heart. Being a cat lover lol I couldn’t pass up the chance to read about the ‘damsel in distress with her kitten’ to be rescued by the hottest fireman in the city. How can you go wrong with kitties and a handsome hero?”
5 Stars! ~ Ravannah Rayne

“I was hooked from the start. There was *hand over mouth ‘O’ my gawd I would be so embarrassed, to grabbing tissues, to laughing out loud in this book. If you’re looking for sex scenes and erotica you aren’t going to find that anywhere in this book. But the author has done such a phenomenal job building the chemistry between Knox and Lexi you don’t need it. The story is excellent without it. You will need your own fire hydrant to put out the flames that Knox and Lexi create in this story.” 5 Stars! ~My Family’s Heart Reviews

“Hook Me Up – This story had a little bit of everything I look for when I’m reading a story. Good pacing, some humor and a hot hero. Knox is a complex man. He had a lot of depth and it was nice to see that he wasn’t perfect. His flaws and his issues made him more real, which I appreciated. And even though the way they met was very unconventional, the pair make it work. A sweet story with a satisfying ending. I’ll definitely be checking out what else Adele Downs has to offer.” 5 Stars! ~Z Shaw

“This book is marvelous, it cracked me up at the very first page…This is truly a sweet, touching and funny romance! If I could give it more than five stars I would! It is a must must read book!” 5 Stars! ~ Roxie’s Reviews

“Adele Downs writes with wit and emotion. Her characters are always lovable and HOT! She makes you want more.” 5 Stars! ~Will Work For Books

“Hook Me Up (Adele Downs) is a really quick story – it starts off with our heroine stuck in a tree! Of course, the sexy firefighter arrives to save the day! I loved the chemistry between these two – and the whole story just made me smile.” 4.5 Stars! ~ Cat’s Reviews

A Love Romances Cafe’ Reader’s Choice Award Winner!

Summary:

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 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.

A Real Life Firefighter Santa Claus

SantaToTheRescueCoverArt_SttR500_Med

“Be prepared.” The Girl Scout motto has served me well through the years, though I never would have guessed it would pave the way to a VIP pass to Santa Claus.

One of the first things I learned as a published author was to carry business cards and promotional materials inside my purse. For SANTA TO THE RESCUE that meant keeping postcards handy in case someone asked about my sweet romance and its firefighter hero. (Be Prepared!)

While driving through a neighboring town at the start of the holiday season, I passed by a firehouse and a group of firefighters dressed in their turnouts. Naturally, like any red-blooded American woman, I turned to look. That’s when I noticed the sign advertising Santa Claus and a holiday bazaar inside the station. My convertible made an automatic turn into the parking lot and I headed to the indoor event. I wanted to meet firefighter Santa, a real life version of my fictional SANTA TO THE RESCUE hero, Jamey Tucker.

Turned out, Santa was on coffee break.

At the baked goods table (my personal favorite), hosted by the Ladies’ Auxiliary, I introduced myself and asked if I could take pictures of Santa Claus when he returned. I showed them my book cover postcards and explained what my book was about. SANTA TO THE RESCUE is a PG rated romance, suitable for readers from high school to the senior center. The women found Santa for me and asked him to return to his throne at the front of the room. Santa-the-firefighter graciously posed with my book cover while everyone gathered around.

After pictures were taken, a cupcake pop was eaten, and new friends were made, one of the women offered me the most wonderful gift I could ever have imagined. She promised to ask her husband to copy my postcard and send the information about SANTA TO THE RESCUE to all the firehouses in the county. In addition, she agreed to list my book on the fire company website. Turned out, she was not only a firefighter wife, but the wife of a District Chief. Talk about Christmas miracles!

I owe my VIP visit with Santa and the firefighters to my years as a Girl Scout, where I learned to “Be Prepared” (and to wear make-up, even when running errands). I also decided that firefighters and the women of the Ladies’ Auxiliary must know the Girl Scout slogan, “Do a good turn daily.” They certainly live by that creed.
