As we approach the holiday season, I wanted to share the many novellas and novels that celebrate the season and romance. I, personally, am a sucker for a Christmas novel. The trees, the snow, the lights, the love, the steamy scenes are just my weakness. So, check out the list below for some great novels to snuggle up by the fire.
From the author of GET LUCKY comes a sexy, laugh-out-loud holiday novella!
Throwing a blow-out bash for hot rockstar-turned-music exec Ace Carmichael should be as easy as pecan pie. It’s my chance to prove my party-planning skills, but this bad boy client isn’t making life simple with his broody looks and aversion to shirts. If only he’d stop tempting me to jingle all the way to his hot tub, this could be my big break.
But thanks to four feet of snow, the event of the year is suddenly a party for two. So deck the halls with a dangerously sexy tattooed rocker, a dozen cases of champagne and … me.
When the snow melts, Santa might not be the only one who’s coming. So what’s it going to be this year: naughty or nice?
What happens when your life goes to crap the week of Christmas? You invite a hot Marine you met in an airport bar to come home with you for the holidays, to distract your crazy family from the truth.
With a handsy aunt, a meddling mother and a father concerned for the wellbeing of his daughter’s eggnog, there’s no chance Sam and Noel will have time to fall in love…or will they?
**The Stocking Was Hung is the first of three books about The Holiday family. It’s a full-length Christmas novel that will make you laugh, make you HOT and maybe even make you say, “Awwwww” a few times.
A blind date. A nervous sorority girl. A mean-spirited fraternity prank. What could go wrong?
As a sorority pledge, there are commandments that Katie Vickery must live by. One: thou shalt not show up for the party without a date. Two: the guy shall be an athlete, preferably an upperclassman.
Unfortunately, Katie just broke up with her jerkface football player boyfriend. Even worse, her last encounter with him resulted in utter humiliation. She’d rather hide under the bed than attend a party where he’ll be.
Yet staying home would mean letting him win.
Enjoying herself tonight was out of the question. She could only hope to get through the evening without her blind date noticing that he was spending the evening with a crazy person.
Andrew Baschnagel is living proof that nice guys don’t finish first. He’s had his eye on Katie since the moment her long legs waltzed into his art history class. So when her roommate sets Andy up to be Katie’s date, he’d be crazy to say no. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a lot of practice with either girls or parties. Yet.
All signs point north for Not-So-Saint Nick
After too many mugs of mulled wine, introverted accountant Holly North lets her best friend guilt her into filling in as Mistress Christmas at Sugar Plums, a Christmas-themed strip club. The combination of a velvet mask and a Mrs. Claus-meets-dominatrix costume gives Holly the courage to approach the hot-bodied man across the room who is as lickable as a candy cane.
Detective Nick West is working undercover to find the sexy vixen who supposedly robbed his buddy at Sugar Plums. His interest in the pole dancers vanishes faster than a flying sleigh upon his introduction to Mistress Christmas—a leggy brunette with smoky eyes and a lush mouth that begs for hours beneath the mistletoe.
One lap dance and their attraction flares hotter than a fireplace on a cold winter evening. And Nick is only too happy to oblige when Holly blurts out her secret Christmas wish…a night filled with sweet and dirty carnal pleasures that will land them both on the naughty list.
Here comes Mr. Santa …
Forbidden love bit Noelle Eastwick the moment she laid eyes on Micha Santa. He took her in, raised her, gave her the life she has. He’s been off limits since she was a teenager.
Until one fateful Christmas Eve …
When she comes to his aid, she can no longer hide how she feels.
But love and lust aren’t strong enough to stay hidden around the one man who leaves her weak and wanting.
Mr. Santa isn’t just anyone.
She’s her best friend’s father.
And she’s about to break every single rule in the forbidden love handbook.
Noelle and Micha are snowed in together, and the walls of this cabin are the only witnesses to how quickly lust can erupt in such close spaces. This Christmas is about to be the hottest of Noelle’s life.
If, that is, Santa doesn’t mind her being on the naughty list.
Mr. Santa is a sexy forbidden Christmas novella.
A dash of perfect for the holidays!
Dilyn Hart hates Christmas, so when her boss (and ex-boyfriend) hands her an assignment to interview champion snowboarder and gorgeous playboy extraordinaire, Dash Grainger, on Christmas Eve, she takes it. There are several things she doesn’t plan for—a surly driver, a chalet in the middle of nowhere, a freak snowstorm—but the biggest surprise of all is Dash himself.
Dash Grainger lives for the high, and so far in his twenty-six years, he’s never met anyone or anything he loves more. Nothing has ever thrilled him as much as slick snow, cold air, and breakneck speed.
Until he meets Dilyn.
But one perfect night doesn’t mean clear, blue skies the next day. Some storms can’t be weathered.
Christmas might just be one of them.
**This is a fun, sexy, standalone Christmas novella. If you want to lighten up your holiday, warm up your night or steam up your windows, give this a read. Mature readers only.**
When it comes to raising his only son, single dad Sheldon Truman will do whatever it takes to secure the best Christmas for his autistic child, even if that means marrying America’s leading pop princess and starring on Celebrity Newlywed Boot Camp to pay for it. After all, he doesn’t believe in marriage, monogamy, or happily ever after, so what’s there to lose?
With a failing handbag line, a perfume brand that stinks, and a singing career gone flat, actress Neve Adele will do anything that her PR firm, Brill Inc., throws her way. So when she’s cast alongside the hottest bad boy she’s ever met, the cameras start rolling, and they’re forced to share a bed.
Once the filming is over, the feelings that Neve’s been faking toward Sheldon suddenly become a reality. Can she stop thinking about him and get her career back on track? Or will she give up her hunger for fame and get real with the Manhattanite who not only took her virginity but her heart?
Since losing his wife five years ago, Derek Erickson has lived a life of lonely solitude. Focusing on work and incasing his heart in a protective shell of ice. Friends and family have begged him to put himself back out in the dating world, to find someone who can unfreeze his troubled heart. But Derek is content to live alone. He had and lost the great love of his life and to him no one can make him as happy as his late wife Sonia had. That is until he gets snowed in for Christmas with the vibrant and charismatic Eliza Edwards.
An American Christmas in the mountains sounded like a dream to Eliza Edwards. After four months of living in the Big Apple she was ready to get back to the small town vibe she had been missing since moving from her childhood home of Surrey, England. She was prepared for a weekend of watching cheesy Christmas movies, baking cookies and sitting by the fire drinking hot cocoa. The only thing she wasn’t expecting was to meet the charming and extremely handsome Derek Erickson. One innocent kiss under the mistletoe sparks a fire so intense that not even the coldest of hearts could survive.
Snow, a small cabin in the woods and the romance of Christmas is a recipe for one hot steamy holiday.
‘Tis the Season to Be Naughty

With a cheating ex behind her, all Faith wants is a relaxing holiday free from man drama. And even though every moment with gorgeous Connor is a sweet temptation, Faith is determined not to give in. But Jack Frost has other plans, and soon Faith and Connor are snowbound in a winter wonderland with only the sparks flying between them to keep them warm. As one hot kiss leads to another, they’ll have to decide if they’re ready to give each other the best gift of all-love.

25 Authors, Awkward Sex, Epic Cause
Holidays conjure up many thoughts – long, chilly nights snuggled up by the fire, bare feet tucked under the one you love. Some are hallmarks of summer when your skin is warmed by more than the sun. There is the after-Thanksgiving dinner nightcap, and the feel of the smooth, sultry burn of whiskey warming your chest, rendering your limbs heavy. Or lazy kisses and wandering hands beneath your best dress on a romantic Valentine’s Day date.
But sometimes, Grandma gets boozed up and passes out at the table, your brother gets caught rubbing one out under the fireworks, your kids catch mommy kissing Santa (and not on the lips), your special new toy winds up in the wrong gift bag, a goat steals and wears your sexy new thong and watching the ball drop takes on a whole new meaning.
In other words, the holidays can be magical, but sometimes, they’re also just f*cking awkward.
Special Foreword written by USA Today Bestselling Author, Tara Sivec’s dog, Fat Ralph.

A Christmas Eve snowstorm transforms one small town into a romantic haven, the kind you see only in movies. Well, kinda. After all, a cold and wet hike from a stranded train through the middle of nowhere would not normally end with a delicious kiss from a charming stranger.

Or that the way back to true love begins with a painfully early morning shift at Starbucks. Thanks to three of today’s bestselling teen authors—John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle—the magic of the holidays shines on these hilarious and charming interconnected tales of love, romance, and breathtaking kisses.

Let’s get one thing straight–I’m not your usual bad boy billionaire. I’m actually a nice guy. A very nice guy who also enjoys turning a woman over my knee and spanking her ass until she begs for mercy–AKA a good, hard, hold-her-down-and-teach-her-who’s-boss f*ck.
I’m a gentleman in the boardroom and a Dominant in the bedroom. I’ve also been secretly in love with my sweet, sexy, too-innocent-for-her-own-good executive assistant, Jane, for the better part of two years.
But like I said, I’m a gentleman. Any woman on my staff is strictly off limits.
Until the night I’m snowed in at the office with Jane…
The same night I discover she’s a submissive looking for a teacher…
The night I decide to make her mine…
“Are you ready to be possessed? If so, get on your knees, beautiful. The game is about to begin. Tonight, you’re mine.”
WARNING: This red hot holiday read contains spanking, dirty talk, and a Dominant alpha male who will melt your panties off–he doesn’t care how cold it is outside.

Yet despite his temperament, he consumes the air in her lungs and dominates her every waking thought. Especially when she sees him being as sweet as candy to his five-year-old daughter.
