A Red Riding Hood Retelling
 
Scarlett’s heart is heavy as she takes over her late grandmother’s estate. With many repairs needed, she hires the sexy lumberjack next door. He’s a little rough around the edges but he has kind eyes. With bills mounting, she gets a job at the local flower shop. A repeat customer that resembles a wolf in sheep’s clothing keeps coming into the shop requesting her services. Is he stalking her? 

My mate has returned. She doesn’t remember me and I’d like to keep it that way. If Red Riding Hood finds out I’m the one who broke her young heart all those years ago, she’ll never let me win her back. Another shifter is trying to make the moves on my mate. I’ll rip him to shreds before he lays a hand on her. She’s mine. 

Danger lurks around every corner in this shifter town. With a wolf hot on Scarlett’s heels, will her true love save her or will she be bitten into submission?

Synopsis:

You met James Wallace in Lost & Found, now it’s time he gets his happy ever after!

A guy walks into a bar… No too cheesy.
A girl see’s him across the room… Nope, not quite.

He’s a Grinch, she’s an Elf… That’s the one!

Grumpy about caving to his partner’s request, James Wallace dresses up as Santa to please some kids he doesn’t know. The girl playing his helper Elf has him intrigued from the moment their eyes meet.

All Georgina “Gigi” Grant wants for Christmas is to have some luck in love. Her brother and his wife suggested she help Santa at the local kid’s club. Dressed up like a helpful Elf, Gigi isn’t prepared to be snowed in with the Grinchy Santa.

Seeing her brothers’ friend is behind the Grinchy demeanor, she hesitates until he takes her in his arms and suddenly all she wants for Christmas is…

The Grinch.

📝My Review📝:

Lucky Christmas: A Novelette (The Possessed Series Book 4)Lucky Christmas: A Novelette by K.L. Donn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars!

Lucky Christmas was a short, sexy holiday romance. While this is book four in the Possessed series it can be read as a standalone. That said, I haven’t read the other books in this series. And while I had no trouble following along when characters from the last book made an appearance, my interest was definitely tickled. As soon as I get caught up on my current reading, I plan to read book three which features James’ sister and her husbands.

James and Gigi…..
James is described as a bit of a Grinch. And while he was grumpy and impatient with Gigi at times, I did not view him to be that selfish, green holiday miser. I actually liked James right from the beginning. Gigi was sweet; a lovely character. While she had attention issues and could be hypersensitive, I did not judge her by that. People are born with issues that don’t make them bad, just different. In fact, Gigi was downright perfect and I was completely endeared to her.

Circumstances bring Gigi and James together during a snowstorm. It is during that time, they realize their feelings for each other are strong and not going away. I don’t want to tell you anything more since this book is so short. You will just have to read and find out how things end on your own. I will say I loved James and Gigi’s happily-ever-after. Not only did luck and a snowstorm bring them together, but their future is going to be merry and bright. Ok, that was probably cheesy, but I meant it.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Beautiful young couple in pajamas on nicely decorated Christmas tree background.

My Review:

Claiming HollyClaiming Holly by Mila Crawford

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars!
Cute, sexy story featuring an OTT possessive alpha.
This book was pretty short and one that I gobbled up pretty quickly. Holly was a down on her luck single mom, just trying to afford life. I liked Holly a lot. Despite her unfortunate circumstances, she was strong and independent. Her daughter was sweet and adorable and her character added some depth to the story. Bryant was not my favorite. Unfortunately, because of his dominant, possessive persona, it took some time to warm up to him. Eventually he grew on me because of how he treated Holly and her daughter. Just like with any OTT alpha, Bryant was intense but he treated Holly with tenderness.

Holly interviews for a position which will force her to spend a lot of time with Bryant. He needs a hired girlfriend to prove to his boss he can be a family man. Bryant is a pro-hockey athlete and striving for the captain position for his teamHis manager convinced him that hiring a girlfriend will make him look better to managment. Of course, Bryant does not intend to keep a girlfriend once he gets the captain position. Ha! Once he set eyes on Holly, his attraction is instant and strong. Bryant has no intentions of letting her go. Ever!

As I said, this was a quick, fun and sexy read. A perfect addition to my holiday reads thus far.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

📝My Review📝:

Eggnog Makes Her Easy (Boys of the Big Easy)Eggnog Makes Her Easy by Erin Nicholas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars
I have been reading this author for a while now. I’ve always loved her books. As far as talent goes, she is a wonderful storyteller and always has me engaged in her books. This was actually my first book in the Boys of the Big Easy series. I definitely want to read the rest of the series. There are so many wonderful characters.

This story was so adorable and sexy at the same time. Lindsey and Matt have been married for ten years and have two young children, both boys. Matt is actively enlisted in the military, and the truth is he is away more than he is home. I’ll say right here that Lindsey is a one-in-million heroine. Not many women would be able to handle the absence of the man they love for most of the time they’ve been married. Lindsay never knows when Matt is going to be home or how long he is able to stay. I truly felt bad for Lindsey. This was not your typical romance. And I’ll admit, I expected more with the ending of this book. So, yes, I was a little disappointed after reading the last page. I just wanted more of the book and more for Lindsey and Matt as a couple. I don’t want to say much more; you’ll just have to read for yourself. I would like to add that my feelings about how the book ended is 100% a matter of preference and not based on the author’s talent for writing.

Because this is a fast-paced novella, I don’t want to give any details away. You can easily read this book in under a couple of hours. One more thing I would like to add, is after I finished reading this story, the characters stayed in my thoughts for very long time afterward. I just wish things would have been more easy for Lindsey and Matt. But one thing is for sure, their love was realistic and believable. I absolutely adored them as a couple. I respected them as well!

As I said earlier, I can’t wait to read the other books in this series. I absolutely recommend Egg Nog Makes Her Easy as a must read for the holidays. It will fill you with such emotions; your heart will be bursting with so many different feelings.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

COVER REVEAL ~ 🎄 ~ Santa Daddy Coming November 27 ~ By Allysa Hart & Rayanna Jamison

 

Santa Daddy

Coming November 27

My most important job as Santa is to rid the world of non-believers of all ages. But first, I have to make one of them my wife.

Crystal spent her entire life avoiding Christmas, and I have only two weeks to convince her otherwise. She is stubborn, but I am determined.

She will learn the magic of Christmas either on Santa’s lap, or over it.

The fate of Christmas depends on it.

Allysa Hart

I am a full-time mom to a sassy, strong-willed, loveable little girl. Okay, so she is all me. I am on the wrong side of 30, and I have been married to my best friend for over eight years. Like most couples, we have our ups and downs, but I could not imagine doing life with anyone else by my side. We are Southern California transplants, currently residing in a very rural part of the east coast. I have two crazy dogs that I adore, even though they drive me out of my ever-loving mind, most days.

I have recently rediscovered my love of words and decided to become a writer. My first story is my heart and soul, and it reaches into the depths of all that is me. I also create covers, promos, and logos for authors. I have met some amazing friends on this journey that I now happily call family. Without my family members, whether biological or chosen, I would not be half the person I am today. Their constant love and support keep me afloat.
