Warmth in Ice- The 12 NA's of Christmas by A. Meredith Walters

***Warmth in Ice is proud to be a part of The 12 NA’s of Christmas***

12 New Adult Novellas. 12 Bestselling Authors. November 2013
***********

It’s Maggie and Clay’s first Christmas together…

***Spoilers for those who have not read Find You in the Dark or Light in the Shadows***

Clay and Maggie have gone through the dark and come out on the other side. For the first time, they are on this journey together. Fighting for something they both need and can’t live without…each other.

But a long distance relationship is hard. Particularly for two people who are still trying to build something solid on a shaky and troubled foundation. Clay is finally out of treatment and is living in an out patient halfway house. He struggles with what he wants to do and where he wants to go. Questions he worries he will never have the answers to. Maggie is trying to transition into college life and learning how to create a future with someone who is over a thousand miles away.

As the months pass and they struggle with being a part, old insecurities and fears take root and threaten a love that has come so far.

When Maggie decides to fly to Florida as a surprise for Clay on Christmas, she is unsure whether it will be the first step toward what they both desperately want or whether it could possibly be the end of it all.

But with the holidays approaching, Maggie and Clay are reminded that even when the days are coldest, you can still find the warmth and that hope and love are the greatest gifts of all.

You can buy this book or any of the 12 NA’s of Christmas titles on Amazon.

Excerpt

“Let’s not make each other any promises we can’t keep right now. I’m not sure I can handle the disappointment,” I said, laughing humorlessly.

I was a trip wire set to detonate. These moments were a bitter reminder of the dark, twisted places my mind could go. Of where it still wanted to go.

I picked at the skin around my thumb, drawing blood. Seeing the bright red against my skin I stilled, gripping my hands into fists. “I’d better go.” I strangled out.

“Clay…” Maggie began. She shook her head, her face hidden by a long curtain of hair.

“You know I love you, right?” she asked and I hated how it felt like she was trying to convince both of us.

I nodded, still clenching my fists as tightly as they would go.

“Yeah, Mags. I know. I love you too,” I replied, the words as brittle as glass between my teeth.

Maggie was distracted by a knock on her door and I heard voices that had become unwelcomingly familiar.

“Just give me a minute to finish up and I’ll meet up with you,” Maggie was saying, her back to me as she spoke to the guy at her door.

The hateful coil of jealousy reared its head and without another word, and before Maggie could turn back around, I disconnected the call. I quickly logged out of my computer and slammed it closed with a decisive bang. I pulled the plug from the wall and then picked up the laptop and shoved it in my desk drawer as if I could shove away the ugly emotions burning a hole in my gut.

My breath came in painful bursts.

About Marquita Valentine:

New York Times Bestselling Author, Marquita Valentine, writes sexy heroes that make you swoon and sassy heroines that make you laugh. She’s the author of the bestselling contemporary romance series, Holland Springs, and the new adult romance series, Boys of the South.

Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man–and if that doesn’t work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.

Excerpt

He dares to brush his thumb over my lower lip and I fight the urge to bite him. “Oh, I mean it, sweetheart. Unfortunately, this mature guy needs your permission to follow through.” “My what?” I croak. “Permission.” He lets go of me and steps back. My traitor of a body misses his touch, misses his kisses and warmth. I’m sick for feeling this way. There has to be something wrong with a girl that can manage to nurse a crush and a hatred for the boy who gave her the first real kiss of her life. “Without it, I’m just a bunch of words,” he says softly. “Words can repair or tear down,” I remind him. “True,” he agrees, nodding a little. “But imagine what actions combined with words can do.” Memories of that night hit me, like the bags of dirt and grass Charlie and her friends had thrown at me, had smashed into my face, my hair, and clothes. Filthy Slut! Whore! Stay the hell away from my boyfriend. Despite the first instinct to run, my limbs are frozen. They’re locked and bound by our shared past. “I don’t have to imagine. I already know.” His face pales a little, but his gaze never wavers. “So do I.”
