Now that I’ve enticed you with books, jewelry and gift cards, let’s talk to Karl Reed from A Christmas Together by Tara Quan
KC: Good morning Major Reed. Thank you so much for taking a moment to chat with me before your flight out of Dulles International Airport. How is D.C.’s weather treating you?
Karl: Please, call me Karl. As for the weather, well… Let’s just say it’s been a cold winter. I’m trained to tolerate extreme temperatures, but surviving the desert heat is my forte, not the capital’s current arctic blast. I can’t wait to go back to the Middle East.
KC: Is that where you’re headed this Christmas weekend? Which city are you planning to visit?
Karl: I’m headed to Dubai for a…umm… vacation. It’s the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates.
KC: Have you been there before?
Karl: Many years ago, yes.
KC: At the risk of sounding overly blunt—you don’t look like a soldier about to go on R&R.
Karl: In what sense?
KC: Well, you’re sure packing a lot of… equipment. I’m not quite certain how you got through airport security.
Karl: These little pea-shooters? They are the Airsoft variety, I promise. *winks*
KC: And that briefcase…
Karl: It’s a personal laptop. I like my electronics big and bulky.
KC: There seems to be a huge knife in your boot…
Karl: How else does a guy peel apples? By the way, I have to run. They’re about to board the plane.
KC: Okay. One last question–Is there anyone in particular you’re visiting in Dubai?
KC: And he or she is….
Karl: My wife, Brennan. She’s been living there for the past two years.
KC: It was a pleasure spending some time with Major Karl Reed, but he has to catch his flight to Dubai. (Don’t miss the blurb below!)

A Christmas Together
(Safe Harbor series, #2)
by Tara Quan
Despite Dubai’s oppressive heat, heiress Brennan Caruthers is gearing up to throw a holiday party. She has almost everything a modern woman could want–a tight-knit circle of friends, challenging career, financial independence, and an impressive shoe collection. But when armed men attempt to kidnap her straight off a six-lane highway, she’s forced to revisit her past, and ends up spending the nights leading to Christmas with a man she’d rather forget.
Major Karl Reed can’t imagine a worse end to his year. Cover blown and mission details leaked, his Delta unit and their families have become targets of a vengeful criminal cell. After receiving news of a failed attack on his estranged wife, he rushes to the Emirates to whisk her into hiding. But when his damsel in distress digs in her stiletto heels and presents him with a better plan, he’s forced to become her unwelcome houseguest. Assuming he keeps them both alive, they might just celebrate their first Christmas together.
This contemporary holiday romance will be available at all major eBook retailers on December 22, 2014. If you’re a fan of sexy stories with heroes who pack some heat (pun intended), check out Tara’s website: http://www.taraquan.com
