Wendy's Review

This book of 13 wonderful short stories by various authors was hot and sexy for the Christmas season. I rate this book a 5 Tea Cup and 3 heat index. The authors did a wonderful job incorporating each story to go along with the theme. Great Christmas read!

She was naughty and Santa knew it and sent Chris to take her in hand and over his knee. This Christmas Laura-Ann learned that through her punishment, love came with an elf. Santa wasn’t the man Laura-Ann thought he was—he did care for her.

On Christmas Eve Holly made sure a package was being delivered so that she made sure Liam would be there for her to tell and seduce.

This story is a lesson to read the small print on all contracts.

All I can say is I can’t wait for Chris Kringle to come down my chimney on Christmas Eve.

Laura lived in Alaska by herself and she liked it that way till lately, loneliness was settling in but the alternative was to trust not to be hurt again. That was something that she wasn’t willing to try again she thought. On a stormy night Laura was looking at the ice sculpture that took months to make and realized how lonely she was after her husband’s death. Elric was caught in the storm and needed shelter when he came upon Laura’s barn and broke in to face the sculpture of himself life size. Knowing that he wanted Laura from the first moment Elric gave Laura what she had yearned for the best sex a girl could ever want. In the morning decisions had to be made would Laura chose the right one. This story was wonderful and I hope that Shannan takes it further and makes a full length story—it would be great.

5 Tea Cups!
