By Tally's Mystery Man
From Wendy Lyn Watson's SCOOP TO KILL
Shhh! Don't tell Tally I'm here ...
Those of you who've been keeping up with Tally Jones through that Wendy woman's books probably know that she's got a new man in her life. That's me. Dalliance is a small town--no bigger than a minute--and both Tally and I have been in the public eye a fair amount lately, so we're trying to keep our (new, fragile) relationship quiet ...
But Christmas is coming up fast, and I need some serious help in picking out a present for Tally. I asked her cousin, Bree, for advice. I'm pretty sure this is a PG-rated blog, so I'm not going to pass along her suggestions. Suffice it to say that there were numerous references to "stocking stuffers" and a lot of throaty chuckling. Dang, that woman has a dirty, dirty mind. I sort of admire her for that, but in the end, Bree's X-rated recommendations don't get me much closer to finding Tally a gift.
See, here's the thing: I'm tail-over-tea-kettle in love with Miss Tallulah Decker Jones. But we haven't been dating for very long and Tally's a little gun-shy when it comes to romance. I want to show her how important she is to me, but I don't want to spook her. My gift to her has to be something special, but not over-the-top. Something romantic, but not too mushy. Something perfect, just like Tally.
Can you help this Secret Santa make his girl's Christmas merry and bright? What's the best present you've ever gotten?
