It used to be that as the Christmas holiday season approached I was unleashing my collection of Christmas music to listen to almost continuously. My heart would leap with joy when they started playing them on the radio. But that was when I had more time in my life, or so it seemed. Now the music that fills my head is more along the lines of Muse’s song “Time is Running out” as I frantically prepare for the fast approaching holidays.
But, I won’t play that one for you because there are a lot of beautiful holiday songs. I don’t know that I could choose one because it depends upon the mood I’m in.
So, here’s some ‘mood music’ for you to choose from:
- Happy music: “Step into Christmas”
- Nostalgic music: “O Holy Night”
- Christmas Eve music (to me): “Ave Maria”
- Music that always irritates the hubs: Any of my Beach Boys Christmas songs
- Music to kick off the season: “Happy Xmas (War is Over)”
- Music to rap/wrap to: “Christmas Wrapping”
I could go on, but now I’d like to hear some of yours. Pick a nice romantic one to listen to while you check out my guest, Rachel Lacey’s, book…Unleashed.
Unleashed by Rachel Lacey
Cara Medlen has a serious case of animal attraction. And it’s not because of all the foster dogs she’s rescued. She’s got it bad for her incredibly sexy neighbor. Her one rule: Don’t get attached. It’s served her well with the dogs she’s given to good homes and the children she’s nannied. Yet the temptation of Matt’s sexy smile might just convince her that some rules are made to be broken.
Matt Dumont doesn’t need his skills as a private investigator to detect disaster on the horizon. Cara is everything he thought he’d never find—gorgeous, funny, and caring. But there’s no way he can start a relationship just as he’s about to move to another state. Talk about bad timing. As their attraction sizzles too hot to deny, they’ll have to make a decision: forget the consequences and let loose, or forget each other and let go…
