A Hundred Promises of Love by Aidee Ladnier πŸ’• Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway πŸ’• (M/M Holiday Romance)



For Ethan and Nico, a broken millefiori ornament is more than a few shards of glass−it’s a chance at finding love at Christmas.

Ethan Carson wants to treat his mother to the perfect Christmas while she’s visiting over the holidays. He’s spent all his savings on presents and bought an enormous tree that takes up half his living room. But when he starts to trim the tree with the family heirloom decorations, he finds her favorite ornament, the one his late father bought on their honeymoon, is broken.

Glassblower Nico Kazan doesn’t celebrate Christmas—unless you count trying to sell the art glass in his gallery to holiday shoppers. When Ethan, the object of his secret crush, asks him to recreate a broken Murano ball, he knows it will take more than his skill and time. Can he risk his heart to give Ethan back a symbol of love and family for Christmas?


They exited the back of the shop. The sound of carols from a radio traveled on the chill breeze that blew in their faces, stealing Nico’s breath. He led them down the few blocks and one street over to the loft apartments converted from an old factory. Juggling his box, Nico punched in the security code, and he hauled open the door for Ethan to scoot inside the warm lobby. They took the industrial elevator converted for tenant use to the fifth floor. Nico couldn’t take his eyes off Ethan and his smiling face. The elevator stopped on Nico’s floor and opened into his loft.

“This is it. We can put the boxes there.” Nico gestured to the kitchen counter. The contents of the box rattled as he put it down but he didn’t step back. Ethan stood close to him; his fingers brushed Nico’s again. Nico rooted to the spot, knowing what came next but unsure how to get to that place. It had been years since he’d wanted someone like he wanted Ethan.

Ethan glanced at his feet and shuffled nervously.

“I hope I’m not reading this wrong.” Ethan’s voice barely rose above a whisper, still loud in the silent loft. “But I find you devastatingly attractive, Nico Kazan.”

“I’ve…I’ve been trying to ask you out for the last three months.” There. He finally said it. Electricity zipped through Nico’s veins, enough to leave him tense and on edge, but not enough to make him move after the confession.

Ethan leaned closer. His cheek brushed against Nico’s face and he turned to it, lining up their lips for a silken slide. Ethan groaned then, opening his mouth. Nico licked into him, grasping Ethan’s hand and hooking his fingers over it. Nico’s other hand rose to Ethan’s neck, to guide him closer for a deeper kiss.

    1. Hi Brooke! My favorite time to write is when I can steal a moment of quiet. Although I spent a year getting up an hour early to write, I only do that sporadically now. I also will wait until my DH has gone off to work on something after dinner and then quickly switch the tv off and grab my laptop. I can sometimes get in a thousand words when he's not looking. LOL!

  22. I believe that experiences, at all ages, are the best teachers and the author was fortunate to be able to experience so much at a young age and it has served her well.

  26. The first time I ever saw a hot air balloon was in the 1980's James Bond movie, 'Octopussy'. When I was younger, my family and I moved to Abilene, Texas, where they have an annual hot air balloon festival. Have you ever gotten to ride in one, yourself?
