Today it is my pleasure to Welcome romance author Olivia Miles to HJ!

Hi Olivia and welcome to HJ! We’re so excited to chat with you about your new release, Mistletoe on Main Street!

Sleigh bells, snow, and second chances . . .

MOMSBriar Creek’s quaint shop windows, cozy homes nestled in snow, and neighborly residents are what Christmas dreams are made of—for everyone except Grace Madison. She left her hometown years ago to pursue a writing career. But when her father’s death leaves his bookstore empty, Grace must return to face why she fled Vermont in the first place: Luke Hastings, who still heats her up like a shot of smoky whiskey on a cold winter’s night.

Grace is back, and Luke is worried. How much has she changed as a bestselling author in the big city? What memories will she stir up? And was the choice he made five years ago the biggest mistake of his life?

Now, with their past, present, and future rocking around the Christmas tree, it’s time for Grace and Luke to face the music . . . and the mistletoe.

Olivia’s Fav scenes from the book:

1. Luke slid into the driver’s seat and slammed the door shut. He wasn’t sure which was worse: feeling like she was still the girl who knew him inside out, or feeling like she was a total stranger. That he meant nothing to her anymore.
But Grace Madison could never be nothing to him. And that was just the problem.

2. “Afraid to be seen with me?”
His banter had succeeded in disarming her and she gave a small smile. “You know how it is in that house. Two sisters and a mother. If they saw you dropping me off, I’d never hear the end of it.”
“Would that be such a bad thing?” He slid her a glance and she lowered her eyes.
“Yes,” she said firmly.

3. “It’s my home and I like it,” Luke said, but one glance at Mark told him his cousin wasn’t buying it. Mark had seen the lavender hand soaps in the bathroom. The throw pillows on the bed. The faux floral arrangement that anchored the dining room table. The dishtowels that depicted little birds and butterflies.
“I’m just saying…It’s not the kind of place you could bring a woman to. Not as a bachelor.”

4. “You had plenty of choices,” he growled.
Her gaze narrowed. “And so did you.”
He held her stare, his heart thundering in his chest. and then shrugged. Shrugged off the pain, the hurt, the frustration that had lingered for years and was now bubbling at the surface.
He had plenty of choices, she was right about that. And leave it to Grace to home in on the one thing that had nagged him all these years. Had he made the right one?

5. “I do love you, you know.”
She shot him a look as her fingers turned the door handle. “I know,” she said bitterly. “But we both know from experience that sometimes that isn’t enough.”

    Mr. Darcy. I know he seems aloof, but he’s guarded for many reasons. He’s a good man inside, though. Thanks!

  2. Jessica Alcazar

    um … um … I’m going with Heath Champion 🙂 you get a star if you can name the book 🙂 lol
    he is charming, funny, good looking, thoughtful ….. awesome!

  3. Krysten M

    There are so many good ones to pick from! Right now, I’m on an Outlander fix though, so it’ll have to be Jamie for me 😉

  4. Lubnaa J

    Ooooh this is tough.

    I think I’ll go with St. Vincent from Devil in Winter. He’s soooooo yummy.

  5. Ashleigh Downes

    I’d have to say Christian Grey. That sounds like a great night I wouldn’t forget.

  6. Mary Preston

    Right now that has got to be Jamie Fraser. Of course he looks a LOT like Sam Heughan.

  7. Leanna

    Nolan from I want to Hold your Hand. This is what I am reading now. I love how supportive he is.

  8. Lori Meehan

    Ian Mackenzie because he did everything he could do to become a better man for his Beth.

  9. Mary Platt

    Just finished reading Mistletoe on Main Street. The level of emotion keeps one turning the pages. Sometimes you want to shake both Luke and Grace. Other times you commiserate with them. Loved it. 5 stars for this one. Can’t wait for the next Briar Creek story.

  10. Terri Shortell

    Dean Winchester from Supernatural. Sexy, hot,bad boy, and bad ass. Lol. Makes my heart just speed up. *fanning myself* Thanks for the giveaway and review.

  11. Trudy Dowling

    Luke Barringer because he seems like a down to Earth guy. He cares about people, knows how to live and how to love.

  12. Penney Wilfort

    I’d say Jack Sparrow! Can’t wait to read this book, thanks for the review

  13. Joan V.

    Currently it is Walt Raynham from Handled by Officer. He looks like a Viking and he’s a knight saving the heroine. Oh and he’s smoking hot in bed.

  14. Joye

    It would have to be someone with a good sense of humor and a good kisser. Can’t think of anyone at the moment since after this weekend George Clooney is taken. Just my luck

  15. rachael constant

    mr darcy, because its MR DARCY need I explain?
    to be honest, there are SO many fictional characters out there, who I wouldn’t mind meeting under the mistletoe. I would be here for days, trying to list them all

  16. Olivia Miles

    Thanks for stopping by, everyone! I hope you all enjoy the first book in my new Briar Creek series! To join the fun, I must say Bradley Cooper is my pick. Swoon…

  17. nicholskathy

    Mr. Darcy, Sam Elliott, Kurt Russell, Brad Pitt and a host of others that I’d love to meet under the mistletoe! I could spend months maybe even a year meeting handsome, sexy men under the mistletoe if I could – lol. Thx so much for this opportunity!!!

  18. donnasquaw1952

    I don’t know if this counts but I would say Rowdy, Clint Eastwood’s character in Rawhide. I know I’m old, but I was young watching this show everyweek with dreamy eyes. I love cowboys and he was the hottest back then.
    Donna Harris
