Aloha to Cheryl Harper and SANTA, BRING MY BABY BACK

Cheryl Harper is celebrating the today's release of SANTA, BRING MY BABY BACK:

A bride abandoned at the altar . . . just in time for Christmas? 'Tis the season for second chances at Cheryl Harper's Elvis-themed Rock'n'Rolla Hotel.

After trying and failing at acting, modeling, dog grooming, and a dozen other jobs, Grace Andersen thought for sure she'd nail marrying a rich man. But dumped in a hotel chapel and strapped for cash, Grace needs a miracle—and a job.

If it were up to Charlie McMinn, Grace would be a married lady by now. Officiating weddings in gold lamé and a rock star pompadour may not have been his idea of getting into the holiday spirit, but with a gorgeous bride asking for his help, Charlie doesn't mind sticking around his mother's hotel a few more days. Especially if it means getting Grace settled …

Grace isn't sure what to think of sexy, rugged Charlie, except that she can't deny the attraction between them, or how good it feels to finally fit in somewhere. Is she ready to give a certain place—and a certain someone—a real chance? Or will she abandon a true Christmas miracle?

SANTA, BRING MY BABY BACK is available now at 

Amazon | B&N | iTunes | IndieBound

  1. I love watching all the old Elvis movies. That seems like such an innocent time now.

  2. My favorite Elvis movie was Blue Hawaii. He was the King!

  3. Kim, the photo's really cool! Thanks so much hosting me. And good luck to everyone who enters!

  4. I grew up with Elvis...loved his music and his movies.

  5. Elvis was the inspiration for the character Bubba, in the Charlaine Harris Southern Vampire book series.

  6. I know he liked peanut butter and banana sandwiches.

  7. He had a nice singing voice, was in movies, married Priscilla, and has a home that I would like to tour someday.

  8. I loved all of the Elvis movies. So much fun to watch. Great songs too.

  9. His music was wonderful! Christmas and gospel!

  10. He's buried at Graceland. If it hadn't been for Priscilla Graceland wouldn't have been kept in the family and we wouldn't be able to tour it today.

  11. I just found a wallet photo of the newspaper picture where Elvis is saluting my father. What an amazing memory.

  12. Daddy loves Rock&Roll music, so I attempted to sing along with Blue Suede Shoes at a very early age. Not speaking or understanding English at the time made it a comedy act for the other family members :D Whenever Elvis or that song comes up in conversation people burst out into laughter + remember my performance :D

  13. I too grew up with Elvis and Loved him like so many fans. I've collected and saved so many Elvis treasures. I know he was a very kind hearted man and some say he was generous to a fault. He loved his mother dearly and had a twin who died at birth. Thanks for the contest giveaway.

  14. I know that he made beautiful music and fun movies.

  15. I loved Elvis and loved his music. I also had the privilege of seeing him in concert in Oklahoma, when we were stationed at Tinker Air Force Base. I was heartbroken when he died, and had to take the day off of work.

  16. I know that they wouldn't show his hips move on television.
