Hot Winter Nights Giveaway Hop

Hot Winter Nights Grand Prize

The season is winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to be cold! Why not snuggle up with a good book, a comfortable quilt and a mug of your favorite hot cocoa?

lurb: Rikki Breitenberg is an archeologist in charge of the first team of American documenters allowed by the Mexican government to explore newly discovered Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. However, shortly after their arrival in Mexico, things go awry. Treacherous jungle, inclement weather and dangerous wildlife are only the beginning.

When Rikki and her team run afoul of members of an ancient cult devoted to the worship of a bloodthirsty god, things take a terrifying turn for the worse. During their struggle for survival, the team makes a startling discovery that may rewrite the whole of human history. Will they survive to bring their amazing find back to civilization?

    Congrats Scott on your new release! Much success.

    A hot winter night to me is either sitting by the fire snuggling under a comfy throw just talking or watching a movie with the love of your life…that is heaven! You can’t ask for anything better…

    Thanks for the opportunity to share, meet new authors and perhaps snag new books to read.
