About the Author

The moment Sandra Ross held her first romance novel when she was ten, she knew she was going to write romance. At thirty now, a prolific reader and a freelance writer, she's since then expanded her preferences from just romance to romance with a dash of now trending sub-genres—paranormal , fantasy, sci-fi even, and erotica. She loves challenging herself and would write on a dare. On a normal day, she would be found in her herb garden collecting spices for her kitchen or ingredients for her potions; in her huge eclectic Provencal kitchen with the big modern oven cooking pots and pans of food for her family of one husband and three kids (an ardent daughter and two boisterous sons) that'll probably last for weeks; in her library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and an e-reader in her hands as she reads the latest erotic hit; or scribbling pages upon pages of different erotic lifestyles, searching for the one that feels like it was inspired by just the right mix of passion, story line, and sex. Aside from these activities, the rest of the time she'd be found in front of her laptop typing the latest Sandra Ross concoction for her readers.

A Warm Christmas Romance Reading this book made me think of my Christmas Tradition. Ever year in the count down to December 25, I'd take in an old movie. There is a spirit that envelops you around the season that sometimes makes you do things you wouldn't normally do. All that giving and sharing brings so much delight. This sweet romance between Anna and Ian was like waking up Christmas morning just so you could get your presents out from under the tree. The story begins with the two lonely hearts living in the city and missing their families. A little bit of loneliness always paved the way for you to appreciate good company and that is exactly happened when they met each other on the bus. I have to admit in my travelling days when I did not have this stunning ring on my finger reminding me that I got to have my cake and eat too, I used to sit on the buses and the tube and hold out the hope that I would find someone that day. Just the idea of bumping into a handsome stranger on a long journey and quickly realizing that you had a lot in common is very warm and sweet. Ian was a painter and I had to admit I instantly got the whole Jack and Rose vibe from Titanic. I am always tickled by painters, especially good ones not so much the abstract style but the reflective and imitating life kind. When you pose for someone to paint you and they are able to capture you as beautiful and as natural as you are, its a very empowering thing. Ian and Anna experienced one of those never ending conversations that made you reveal your entire story in just one session. It was a very touching and romantic story and I had to admit I fought back few tears reading it. This was certainly one of the more softer and romantic books that Sandra had to offer. The story started out on a somber note with Anna having the deeper past. Some how Sandra managed to take me from sympathizing with the two leads to admiring them. The ending was very sweet. This was truly a warm Christmas romance. I almost wished I could got back to that time to enjoy the descriptions and much more. This is very well written tale. I have no real complaints. It will make a great Christmas present to give to someone who enjoys reading romantic tales.

A very Merry Christmas is in store for you with this book by Sandra Ross. For steamy leisure reads, Sandra is your girl. She knows what she’s talking about and she won’t leave you hanging.  This book starts with the main character Anna. She’s down and depress and Christmas is really not helping. That’s because the holiday brings back hurt feelings from her last breakup. She moved to a new town and plans to celebrate Christmas all alone. She didn’t count of meeting Ian on the bus though. They both felt the attraction from that first meeting. It was like 2 lonely souls finding comfort in each other. Ian is an artist. When he asked Anna to model nude for him, he was in for a big surprise. You can really feel the sensual moment and the arousal. It was funny how Ian tried to act professional even with a boner.  The started a bit sad but turned into good read in just a few chapters!  I like the easy flow of the story and how the characters played their part. The setting is very much like real life. Christmas romance is just the treat for those looking for a relaxing Saturday afternoon. The emotions are so well describe, you can feel them yourself.  Personally, I don’t like the start of the book because it’s depressing. The ending tipped the scale-- it won’t disappoint! It’s a modern day happily ever after tale. I would recommend this book to those who are suckers for fast romance, an even faster wedding and a cute bundle of joy soon on the way.

I was in love with Anna. Maybe that’s a bias because she shares my name but nevertheless I really loved how Sandra Ross wrote this book. A Whisper of Love to Come by Sandra Ross caught me at first because of its title. To me it was a strange title for a romance because well, in romances love is usually in the present, not promised. However, the book stood true to its name and is quite fitting. I found that the characters were characterized perfectly. If you buy this book you will really feel like you have come to know two new people by the time you finish reading it. Similar to how I have come to love the character of Anna, I think that you will find a character in this book that you love too. Sandra Ross writes with simple elegance, and I find that this is a consistent feature in all her books. The only thing I would change is the title of the book but as I said, it did live up to its name, so I guess that worked out fine. In terms of the quality of the story, I would say it is a pretty good one. Especially if you are a hopeless romantic.

This is consistent with this author, she gets someone to write some glowing reviews and the true ones tell the 'Hole' story. Too bad, I really don't feel she needs to resort to this. She can write well and tell a good story. Now she seems mass-produce a load of carappy little books.

This could have been soooo much better. It had potential but left too many questions. If you are going to insert mysterious strangers in the story then develop them.

I would like to believe that there is something about Christmas that makes the world a little better. People are kinder and more open to positivism. Strangers smile to each other and well-wishers greet each other “Merry Christmas”. Gift-giving is spread throughout the land and sharing blessings actually comes from the heart. These are all because Christmas is the spirit of festivities, giving, love and joy. For Ian and Anna, Christmas is also a start of a new and a beautiful beginning. Anna left her hometown to escape the hurt of seeing her ex-fiance and best friend together. Unfortunately, the two have fallen for each other without meaning to hurt her. She became the third wheel. Because of this truth, she was the one who first let go so one person will just go on hurting instead of three. But she can’t stand seeing them building a life together that although much as she accepted the situation, masochism is not for her. She left and tried to live a life of her own. On that fateful Christmas eve when Anna was thinking of her bitter past that Ian came into her world. And there they were looking at each other, Anna acknowledging her attraction to the gorgeous guy. Ian lends her his handkerchief when he saw her crying. They talked and for some reason, Anna finds herself pouring out her soul to him. I would like to think that it is the Christmas spirit why she is so trusting to a guy she just met. Or perhaps, it is fate calling. Also, it must be the season why she is bolder than before. She wants a change in her life. She doesn't want loneliness to linger in her life anymore. She doesn't want to go back to her apartment and spend the Christmas alone wallowing on a future that will never happen. She proposes something that I suppose she will not do had it not been the December twenty-five. She proposes to pose nude for him. But feeling the electricity between them and seeing the hunger on Ian eyes that is not on the professional side, she offers herself to him – a sexy, hot and steaming Christmas present. Aside from all that steamy sex scenes, I think this is a romantic story through and through. Perhaps, everything happens so fast for them – I thought the common rule is to not kiss on a first date? This clearly did not happen in the case of Ian and Anna. But as the teaser say, what the heck? There are so many ill-fated relationships that did not prosper because one of the party or perhaps both of them are too much concerned on that “certainty” attitude. The events in the story happens in one just one day. But that one fateful day is the beginning of their ever after. Who will contend that? I appreciate the story in a sense that it evokes feelings in me. Also, the fact that I do wish them happiness – especially Anna – even if they are just products of the writer’s mind and not real people tells something. This something is a good thing. And even if the story is somewhat overused as all plots are, I am really a sucker for happy endings.

‘Tis the season to be sexy Special holidays, especially during the festive season, have a tendency to become a rollercoaster of emotions as they are either extremely happy or extremely sad depending on past history.  For Anna, it is definitely the latter as Christmas is a very traumatizing reminder of her losing her ex fiancé to her best friend.  With Christmas just a few moments away, Anna finds herself alone on a bus, sobbing miserably… until she is whisked up by a knight… with a white handkerchief.  Ian is the perfect gentleman and after patiently listening to her woes and plying her with pastry, she ends up going up to his apartment to look at his paintings.  This is when her emotional rollercoaster starts to change direction and she is soon naked and posing nude for him… it turns out they both are going to have a very different Christmas than originally anticipated and they both end up getting a sexy and delicious present – each other! Whilst perhaps a little thin on plot and not very well-developed, Sandra Ross still manages to whip out a steamy sexual adventure that will keep your mind enticed and wanting for more.  Ross has a way of involving the reader in each scene, she has a very inclusive way of describing scenes.  I have never found her to be the best writer but I find her to be very enjoyable and  successful because she definitely has a way with words and telling stories that grabs your attention.
