My Birthday Story
First off, Happy Birthday to Amber/Mikela! I am so thrilled to be part of your month long birthday special. My birthday story is from a few years ago. My mom has always wanted to see Tran Siberian Orchestra so about two years ago, I got together with three of my other siblings and their respective partners and we all chipped in together two tickets to go to the afternoon show when they did a stop in Buffalo, NY for a combination birthday/Christmas gift for my mom. I was on pins and needles and had my one brother film her reaction. First we gave her a box of tissues because my mother has a tendancy to cry at every little thing.
Then the big reveal…opening the card with the tickets in it. She started crying, hugging everyone and thanking everyone. I had my two siblings on two different cell phones listening and my brother got it all on tape. Needless to say, she loved the gift and took my youngest sister with her to the show. That day was one day I will never forget because my mother looked thrilled to finally see a group/show she has always wanted to see.
Now onto my book spotlight…..

Marc looked down at the small sprite of a woman and felt his body tighten as he recognized the one he had been looking for. Disbelief warred inside him as Jenna chattered on about different displays, gesturing to another case filled with candy canes stripped in an array of reds, greens, purples, and the traditional flavor of peppermint. He never expected to find his mate in the small town his mother told him to go to. If it wasn’t his family pressuring him to finally find her and his mother’s prophecy, he would never have set foot in Devon Falls. Looks as if mum was right again in her prophecy, Marc thought as he contemplated trying to make her his for all time.
“Jenna, she loves candy canes and anything Christmas-related.” Marc smiled at the memory of his mother baking tons of cookies for the holiday festivities and enjoying the sweets that came with the season as well as telling him and his siblings to keep out of the cookie dough.
“Well, that narrows it down a little.”
Taking a gift box out, she gestured to the case next to her. “Does she have any allergies to anything, like nuts or peanut butter? I want to make sure I don’t kill a potential customer here. It is bad for business, you know.” Amusement lit up her eyes as she decorated the box with gaily-colored tissue paper.
“Actually no, she doesn’t have allergies to anything, so please pick some things out, and make it look really nice,” Marc said. She looked so damn beautiful, looking up at him with those big brown eyes. He couldn’t remember a time when he got this hard this fast, all from watching a woman work. Marc closed his eyes and imagined running some of the chocolate kisses on her nipples. Feeling his cock go even harder from his imagination going into hyper-drive, he shifted his legs a little to ease the pressure.
“Is there anything else you think she may like? I added our specialty treats like our flavored rum balls, Christmas cookie-shaped candies, and chocolate covered caramels. Would there be anything else?”
Marc looked down and saw her nipples were hard points against her work shirt. He hoped he could make it through the rest of the evening before he devoured her whole. “Wow, Jenna, that is definitely a one-of-a-kind gift box. It will be a hit with my mother and get me in her good graces this year. Thank you very much for your help.”
Blushing as she placed the very last candy cane on top of the treats and closed the box up, topping it off with a big, bright red bow, she asked, “Credit or cash?”
“Credit.” Marc handed her his credit card and watched her eyes widen. She must have felt the same sparks he did when their fingers brushed against each other. Marc tried to keep his breath steady, but the sexual awareness simmered in his body. This one woman made him want to ravish her bones yet at the same time, he wanted to cuddle her close and savor her nearness.
