Once I confess this everyone will know it! But here goes... I put on makeup and do my hair even when I am going to be home alone all day. 

What was your favorite scene to write?

The first kiss scene outside Violet’s office. I really loved writing that scene as Violet’s annoying work colleague Lorna was always on at her about being single. Lorna is an office bully. It was the perfect chance for Violet to stand up to her, and even better, she gets to kiss Cam!

Tell us about your book...

I got the idea for this novel from a friend who hates Christmas. Who hates Christmas? I thought. My hero Cameron hates it because his parents are divorced and have remarried and divorced their subsequent partners several times over. My heroine hates it because her parents and her siblings are all happily married and she always feels the odd one out. And she absolutely dreads going to her office Christmas party because of an incident at a party when she was at university. Her brother's best friend Cam comes to her rescue and offers to take her to the party. He needs to shake off the unwanted attention from an important client's wife, so who better to stand-in as his fiancee than his best mate's cute and shy little sister? 

I hope you enjoy my first ever Christmas story- I can't believe I haven't done one until now! 

Unwrapping His Convenient Fiancee (Harlequin Presents) 

The perfect lie… 
Violet Drummond can't face another office Christmas party as a singleton, but charismatic family friend Cameron McKinnon seems like the perfectly platonic "plus one" for the festive season. Until he reveals his plan to make Violet his convenient fiancée! 
Wealthy architect Cameron sees this charade as the perfect escape hatch from the unwelcome attention of an important client's wife, but soon fake feelings shift to real attraction… 
There's only one thing Cameron wants to unwrap on Christmas morning—the staid suit from Violet's lush body—and he's willing to push the boundaries of their agreement to accommodate his growing desire…

  1. I suppose I can relate to the not liking Christmas aspect, for entirely different reasons. Thanks for featuring Melanie!

    1. So sorry you don't like Christmas, William. But thanks for posting.

  2. Hi Melanie

    I can't believe this is your first Christmas either but what a fabulous story it is I loved it Cameron and Violet are so good for each other :)

    Have Fun

    BTW I love Christmas

    1. Aw, thanks Helen. You always say the nicest things. Glad you like Christmas. I bet you make it fabulous for everyone at your house.

  3. Many congrats, Melanie. Sounds like a fun read.

    Hello, Nas:)

  4. Sounds super! Best wishes with it, Melanie.

  5. I know a lot of people who hate Christmas.

    Good luck with book sales, Melanie!

  6. I'm trying to figure out if that is a fur jacket. At first I thought it was a puppy.

    1. Oh, the small white jacket she's wearing? Hehehe...I just noticed! Does look like a small puppy between them!

  7. I love how the concept of hating Christmas is what spurred the idea for this book.

    1. Hi Kelly, it's funny where inspiration comes from!
      Thanks for posting.

  8. I can understand not liking Christmas or the holidays. I'm not a social person and family always seems to want to come over to my place for Christmas and I like it better when I can go to someone else's house, stay a little while and leave and have it be over. lol

    1. Quiet reflective people do find the fuss of Christmas a bit overwhelming and need a bit more control of when to stay and go.
      Thanks for sharing!

  9. RIGHT?!?! Who doesn't love Christmas? I mean, seriously. The books sounds awesome. Seriously. I totally want to read it.

  10. I know what Melanie means...I get dressed and go out for coffee on days when I don't work. Otherwise I could turn into a slob very easily...

    Hi Nas! (You get a mention in my current post!)

  11. Wow... a friend who hates Christmas? How can you have someone who hates Christmas? It's actually one of my favourite holidays of the year. Probably my favourite of all time!

  12. I love Christmas! I can't even imagine hating it...though there have been some years where it feels like a whole lot of work.
