on the 10th day of Christmas…



We not only have Ten Lords a-Leaping (must feel good to be able to do that!), we have the fabulous Nicola Marsh, Romance and Sexy Sensation/Presents author, here to give us a look at her Santa Wish list and give away a copy of TWO recent releases!! 



Ho! Ho! Ho! And a very merry Christmas to the lovely Desirabelles for inviting me to join in their 12 Days of Christmas.

May this Christmas be a special time for all of you.

 Today we have ten lords a-leaping.

 I don’t know about ten but in my house, we have 2 little lords doing loads of leaping come Christmas morning.  And that’s before they get stuck into the sweet treats!

Christmas is a magical time and with little kids I love seeing their eyes light up when they first spy the mound of presents under the Christmas tree.  This year, Santa’s been given strict instructions to bring a remote control tarantula, a bug catcher, a bug home…considering my aversion to creepy-crawlies, I think Santa’s going to be dumping his pressies outside this year!

nics-present1So if Santa could bring you anything this year, what (or who!) would it be?

I know the heroine, Beth Walker, in my current release THE BOSS’S BEDROOM AGENDA would ask for sexy archaeologist Aidan Voss wrapped up in a big red bow (and probably little else!  Come on, this book is a Sexy Sensation after all…)nic-marsh-playboy16

To join in the festive spirit, I’m giving away a copy each of my 2 recent releases, HOT NIGHTS WITH A PLAYBOY (Harlequin Modern Heat) and THE DESERT PRINCE’S PROPOSAL (Harlequin Romance) so to be in the running, please leave a comment and share your Santa wishlist!



THE BOSS’S BEDROOM AGENDA (Harl. Presents) OUT NOW in Aust/NZ, Feb 09 USA
TWO WEEKS IN THE MAGNATE’S BED (Harl. Modern Heat) March 09 UK, May Aust/NZ
THE BILLIONAIRE’S BABY (Harl. Romance) May UK/USA, June Aust/NZ

    On my wishlist is:
    a diamond tennis bracelet
    a bookstore giftcard
    a Kitchen Aid mixer

    Crystal, I’d hang out for the diamond bracelet 🙂 I love bracelets. When our Grandma died, to remember her, our mum bought us three girls a ruby and rose gold bracelet. Prettiest thing you’ll ever see. A good friend of mine bought me a gold bracelet for a significant birthday, and I haven’t taken it off since – except to go through those annoying airport doovies. When I was 10, my auntie and eldest sister bought me a gold bracelet with little gold hearts linking the circle for Christmas. I’ll never forget how surprised and moved I was. I don’t know what happened to it, but I’m sure I’d wear it even now.

    Guess I’ll be practical this year and have Santa bring me someone to clean my house and cook my meals. Two things I hate the most to do. I take a lord a’leaping but I’d never be able to keep up with one.

  4. December 16, 2008 at 2:31 am

    Ellen, I’m hearing you, loud and clear! What a fabulous, magical gift to have someone do all the cleaning and all the cooking. Oh happy sigh.

    If Santa could bring me anything, I would ask for Gerard Butler and Hugh Jackman. I also wouldn’t mind getting a new ipod and a big stack of books. Happy Holidays!

    ok I’m like super practical when it comes to wanting gifts. GC for grocery store,clothes or pjs, books

  7. December 16, 2008 at 3:10 am

    Lori Ann, I’m sorry to tell you, but the gorgeous GB is mine, all mine 🙂 Hugh Jackman I’ll share 🙂

    Christa, sorry for my ignorance..is GC like Gift Vouchers for stuff? I’m a huge believer in that. My sister mentioned she didn’t have jeans to fit her recently. Her birthday was last week so I gave her a voucher. Perfect! My dh thinks they’re impersonal, and I agree to a degree. But maybe times have changed?

  8. December 16, 2008 at 6:32 am

    I like the sound of that bracelet, Crystal.
    And the bookstore giftcard.

    Kitchen aid? Hmm…that would mean I’d have to spend more time there…so nah!

  9. December 16, 2008 at 6:33 am

    Wow Robbie, those sound like gorgeous bracelets!

    December 16, 2008 at 6:33 am

    I would love a gift card to Borders so I could buy some books when all the Christmas craziness is done.

  11. December 16, 2008 at 6:34 am

    Hope you’d be willing to share, Lori Ann!

  12. December 16, 2008 at 6:35 am

    GC would be gift card, I think, Robbie?

    I like them as presents too, Christa, that way the recipient has a choice rather than receiving something they don’t like.

  13. December 16, 2008 at 6:36 am

    Hope you slot one of my books in there, Maureen 😉

    December 16, 2008 at 7:45 am

    Oh I will take a who (Hugh Jackman) purely fantasy though. In reality A lovely candlelight dinner for two followed by a 18K White gold diamond and sapphire tennis braclet.

  15. December 16, 2008 at 7:50 am

    Love that wish list, LJ!

  16. 17 Mau J
    December 16, 2008 at 7:55 am

    Oh Clive Owen or Raoul Bova pretty please Santa. 😀 A day at a spa with the full works will do as a substitute.

  17. 18 Jane
    December 16, 2008 at 7:56 am

    I would love a Kindle, cashmere sweater, cosmetics and a Wii.

    A Vacation to Hawaii. Its been a long year of studies, I would so love this

  19. December 16, 2008 at 8:10 am

    Another great wish list, Mau J 🙂

  20. December 16, 2008 at 8:11 am

    Hawaii is glorious, Dina, and sounds like you deserve it 🙂

    It would a brand new laptop… I am asking my parents and I hope they are listening!

    December 16, 2008 at 9:14 am

    If I could have anything, I think I’d ask for an overseas holiday to somewhere exotic with my dh. Yvonne’s post a couple of weeks ago got me seriously thinking. 🙂

    Good luck with the creepy crawlies, Nicola!

  23. December 16, 2008 at 9:27 am

    Hope you get it, Nathalie!

  24. December 16, 2008 at 9:28 am

    Oooh…an overseas holiday sounds seriously fab, Rachel.

    Trying not to think about the creepy crawlies 😦

    My wishlist is short.

    I want gift cards for books so dh won’t be as bothered by all the books I want to buy.

    Hi Nic, I would like a real diamond bracelet to replace my diamonique one or a Ruby one would be great. Have a wonderful holiday and I hope you get your presents too.

    gc is gift card or gift certificate. while there is a dollar amount attached, I just feel it’s a little more personal than cash and a person can get what they want, in their size(if clothes), suited to their tastes

  28. 30 RobynL
    December 16, 2008 at 2:25 pm

    my wish list has on it the following:
    Word Search book
    nail polish
    dish cloths
    flat screen TV

    I want Santa to bring me a job. 😛 That and a passing score [?] on the bar. Haha – I don’t think that’s on Santa’s list, but hey – it’d be nice. Great post, Robyn!

    (Also I don’t know if it’s my computer or just the weird times I check this blog… but for a few days it’ll show one post as being the most recent… and then one day I’ll check it and somehow I’ll have “missed” 2-3 prior posts in between.) … that’s not making any sense. Ah well. 😛 As long as I can see the posts in the end.

  30. December 16, 2008 at 5:13 pm

    I’d like one of those new paper-thin Macs 🙂 And a two-bedroomed apartment with a balcony, a/c and furnishings from Ikea. But I’ll settle for a new contract – Desire are buying my next two books, yay! 😀

  31. December 16, 2008 at 6:00 pm

    Books are good, Ann M. 🙂
    Especially loads of Desires and Modern Heats and Romances 😉

  32. December 16, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Real diamonds sound lovely, Dena 🙂

  33. December 16, 2008 at 6:01 pm

    Wow, Robyn L, that’s a diverse list!

  34. December 16, 2008 at 6:02 pm

    I hope Santa delivers, Limecello.

  35. December 16, 2008 at 6:02 pm

    Congrats on the new contract, Paula!!! Yay! 🙂

  36. December 16, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    Well of course there would be a voucher for the never ending supply of books. And a shapeshifter male who can turn into Gerard Butler, Hugh Jackman, clive owen, and so forth 😉 massages, hmmm. A cleaner, Gordon Ramsey cooking for me, (i have my iMac so) a Macbook (snap with Paula), good health for all, and well, to be published 😉

    Paula congrats on the 2 book contract! Nicola good luck with Santa’s list. ewww!

    If santa could give me anything, I would have to say for a certain guy to actually talk to me, considering I try but it’s like talking to a wall.

  38. December 17, 2008 at 4:34 am

    My Christmas wishlist is a bit bare this year, but here’s what I’ve asked for:
    Books, books, books!
    Bare Minerals makeup
    Shoes and purses
    Jewelry (rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings)
    A new tattoo
    New haircolor at a good salon
    A winning lottery ticket (Santa can do this, can’t he?)
    A clean house (not done by me!)

    My husband home for Christmas(works for gov so often times misses those special holidays)

  41. 43 Karin

    Okay, since you threw in a ‘who’ there I’ll organize my wish list as follows:
    – a date with someone who doesn’t creep me out
    – a trip to Ireland
    – books

    Yeah, I know that I’ll probably only get the last one, but that’s why it’s called a ‘wish’ list. 😉

  42. 44 Kimmy
    December 17, 2008 at 6:41 am

    All I want is books and more books. I am pretty simple to please 😀

  43. December 17, 2008 at 6:59 am

    ooh, I’d love having a cleaner for the house 🙂 And washing clothes and dishes is a real pain…

  44. December 17, 2008 at 7:34 am

    like the thought of that shapeshifter!!!

  45. December 17, 2008 at 7:35 am

    Hope Santa makes that wish come true, funkywater.

  46. December 17, 2008 at 7:35 am

    Wow, Elisa, that’s some list 🙂

  47. December 17, 2008 at 7:36 am

    Not asking for much at all, Mona 😉

  48. December 17, 2008 at 7:37 am

    Hope you get to spend time with hubbie, Suzette.

  49. December 17, 2008 at 7:38 am

    Books and more books sounds good to me, Kimmy 🙂

  50. December 17, 2008 at 7:39 am

    Let’s hope we all get house cleaning elves this year, Paula 🙂

  51. December 17, 2008 at 7:51 am

    Congrats Eleni 🙂

    If you send me your details privately, I’ll pop the books in the mail to you.

    Eleni! Congratulations! I must say that was a prize wishlist. Might put in for one myself 🙂

    Thank you SO much Nic for joining us on our 12 days of Christmas! You’ve been a fab guest. Have a very merry Christmas and may the love be plentiful and the bugs not so much 🙂
