• On the 14th, 15th, etc. Of Christmas…

    Unfortunately, I have badly sprained my left hand fingers.   So I am going to finish my 24 Days of Chrisrmas in a bundle that I read a while ago. 

    12 Stocking Stuffer Bundle by various authors!

    On Amazon this Bundle is desceibed as follows:

    “Get out the mistletoe!  Twelve days of Christmas….twelve stories filled with tjw magic of holiday romance….perfect reading for a snowy winter’s day.  Bundle includes: Faith, Hope and Love; The Christmas Bride; Christmas Passions; A Seasonal Secret; Return of the Light; Dyat Bright; Naughty or Nice?; Christmas Fantasy; A Marriage Ultimatum; A Prince for Christmas; The Millionaire’s Christmas Wish; and Merry Christmas, Baby.”

    I agree whole heartedly.   Some stories are shorter and slower than others, but overall I loved reading them.  Unfortunately the bundle is no longer offerred as a bundle, however, you can purchase the books separately for about $1.50 each.

    Enjoy reading!  I probably won’t be blogging much so my fingers can heal.  If I can I will, but just in case, Merry Christmas!

  • On the Twelfth Day of Chirstmas…..

    On the Twelfth Day of Christmas my Kindle brought to me…..

    Holiday Games by Jaci Burton!
    Holiday Games
    “A Riley wedding is in the works, a Riley Christmas means a house full of family, and baby making is on Liz Riley’s mind. Chasing Gavin around and meeting in dark closets can be fun, but Liz is more than a little determined. Even with family in every corner of the house, Gavin is more than ready to do whatever Liz wants—especially when sex is involved. It’s a Riley family Christmas.”

    Holiday Games is a Holiday Novella in the Play-by-Play Series by Jaci Burton.  We followed Liz and Gavin’s romance in Changing the Game, the second book in the Play-by-Play Series.  Liz doesn’t say “can’t”, she is a determined professional sports agent used to getting what she wants.  And in the book, with all of her friends and family getting married and having babies she wants a baby of her own, and she will have one even if she has to tie Gavin down to do it!  There is always something about a strong woman that works in a man’s world who lets her womanhood out once in a while that touches my heart.  Gavin has snark, but a heart of gold. Got to love that in a man!

    I highly recommend this series in general.  I can’t get enough!

    The Play by Play Series in chronological order:
    Book 1: The Perfect Play
    Book 2: Changing the Game
    Book 3: Taking A Shot

  • On the Eleventh Day of Christmas…..

    On the Eleventh Day of Christmas my Kindle brought to me…..

    A Club Esoteria Christmas by Cooper McKenzie!
    “You are invited to Club Esoteria’s Christmas Party 
    Friday, December 23, 2011, 8 p.m. until ?
    Entertainment: A Sub’s Talent Show
    RSVP required; floggings will be administered to those who do not

    Antony returns from an eight-month deployment and wonders if Jenna will let him return for good. Gentry worries that he will be kicked out now that Antony is home. Whitney gets new toys for Christmas as Taurus pushes her boundaries. Sloan, Dane, and Merlin make their appearance though Sloan is seven and a half months pregnant. They leave early when Sloan goes into labor after she and Merlin dance for the talent show. Jackson is juggling bartending and keeping his lovely submissive satisfied. He grows more nervous about proposing but he is determined that she will marry him.

    Will Jenna let Antony back into her household? Will Sinclair agree to Jackson’s proposal? Will everyone have a spanking good Christmas party?”

    This is the Seventh Book in the Club Esoteria Series by Cooper McKenzie.  In this book we party BDSM style, as we catch up with those couples we were introduced to in the six prior books.  I have to admit I love Antony and Gentry. They are so caring and loving.  They tug on my heart strings.

    Not everyone enjoys stories about BDSM but my taste in books can go from Christian Romance to hard core BDSM Romances.  Remeber, here Love is Love.  As long as it is Safe, Sane and Consensual, then it is all romance to me.  Looking forward to the next book in this Series The Domme Who Wasn’t due out January 9, 2014.  This will be book 14 in the series.  
    Ciao!

  • On the Eighth Day of Christmas….

    On the Eighth Day of Christmas my Kindle brought to me…..

    The Christmas Throwaway by RJ Scott
    “Christmas is a time for giving – what do you do when no one gives a damn? 


    For Zachary Weston Christmas means sleeping on a churchyard bench in the freezing snow with nothing better in his future. Thrown out of his home for being gay, he is left without money or, it seems, anywhere to go.

    Until a stranger shows him that some people do give a lot more than a damn.

    Ben Hamilton is a rookie cop in his small home town. He finds a young throwaway, fresh from the city, sleeping on a bench in the churchyard on a snowy Christmas Eve. Can he be the one to give Zachary his own Christmas miracle?”

    If you saw someone laying on a bench on Christmas, would you bring him/her home?  That is what Ben does. This is a touching story that will warm your heart and get you into the holiday spirit.

    Ciao!
