Today author Laura Trentham stopped by to chat with us about Candy Cane Christmas!

**Q&A with Laura Trentham**

What is your favorite Christmas song?

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

What was your favorite moment under the mistletoe?

I’m not sure I have one! Confession: I don’t find Christmas to be a particularly romantic holiday. Which is why when my publisher asked me write a Christmas story, I put my own spin on it…my couple ends up in the back of a cop car on Christmas Eve:)

To warm yourself up after playing in the snow, do you drink hot cocoa, egg nog, or hot apple cider?

Hot Apple Cider

A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, or How the Grinch Stole Christmas?

A Charlie Brown Christmas

This or That?

Are you a Santa or a Scrooge?

Santa with my kids, a Scrooge with everyone else! eek

Colored Lights or White Lights?

Colored lights!

Sugar Cookies or Gingerbread Men?

Sugar Cookies

Presents … Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

Family presents on Christmas Eve and Santa comes on Christmas Day

Christmas Parade or Christmas Party?

Out of the characters in your book, who is most likely to:

-shake the presents?

Of course!

-get drunk on Christmas Eve?

I’m not going to say it’s *never* happened…

-eat the cookies left for Santa?

That’s my hubby’s “job”

-kiss Santa Claus?

No way

-steal the sleigh?

I’m too much of a goody-goody

-Make snow angels … naked ;)?

All I can think about with this question is Seinfeld…”Do women know about shrinkage?” “It shrinks?” “Like a frightened turtle.” Lol

A very Cottonbloom Christmas!

Jeremy Whitehurst has tried to leave his bad-boy behavior and tarnished image behind in Alabama for a fresh start in Cottonbloom, Louisiana. Unfortunately, trouble has dogged him across state lines. Stepping up and protecting a young woman from her abusive boyfriend earned him a beat-down and got him fired. Although the thanks in the girl’s dark eyes made it all worth it, he recognizes she’s just a different kind of trouble. A trouble he’s not sure he can stay away from.

One rebellious summer dented Kayla Redmond’s carefree innocence. Now her focus is on completing her associate’s degree for bookkeeping, and no one is going to derail her plans. Unfortunately, her job at Fournette Brothers Designs puts her in the path of the one man who has seen her at her worst, yet his blue eyes don’t judge her. He sees beyond the brokenness inside of her and rouses her wild side once more. But, that’s what got her in trouble in the first place.

Christmas is coming and Kayla’s ready to forgive herself and take a chance. But the holiday has only ever brought heartache to Jeremy. No Christmas miracle kept his mother clean or out of jail. Will one reckless night and some time spent in the back of a cop car be the best present Jeremy’s ever been given?
