THE CHRISTMAS PRESENT by Lori Foster
When Beth Monroe decided to get even with her cheating
fiancé, Brandon, by sleeping with his best friend, Levi, she
never dreamed that her one night stand would turn into an
entire weekend of mind-blowing sex. Beth is overwhelmed by
the strong emotions Levi inspires, but she's also
humiliated; what will people think when they discover what
she's done? So when Levi reveals that he's secretly been in
love with her for years, she panics, and runs to her family
for sanctuary, with Levi in hot pursuit.
Now that he has held the woman of his dreams in his arms,
Levi refuses to let her get away. He knows that their
friendship has always been stronger than her love for
Brandon, and if she can't see that right now, then he'll
just have to seduce her body until she surrenders her heart.
IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE by Karen Kelley
Jeremy Hunter loves his life as a Hollywood playboy until a
night of debauchery almost costs him his first "break out"
role. The studio offers him a choice; prove that he can live
as his character for a few weeks, or else. So, with dyed
hair, colored contacts and a fake scar in place, Jeremy sets
out to convince small-town America that he's really Trey
Jones, traveling preacher.
In Two Creeks, Texas, he meets and lusts after school
teacher Bailey Tanner, but manages to sprain his ankle and
is forced to accept Bailey's offer to stay in her
guesthouse. Bailey believes she's helping, and falling for,
a sweet, humble preacher, who just happens to be sexy as
hell. Jeremy knows he shouldn't seduce Bailey, but
abstinence has never been his strong suit. Can a wild
playboy reform enough to do the right thing?
HOME FOR CHRISTMAS by Dianne Castell
Soldier Sebastian Moore broke off his engagement days
before the wedding when he found his fiancée in a liplock
with another man. So when he meets Lulu Cahill, whose
previous boyfriend left her broke and pregnant, they agree
to a moment of shared passion and nothing more. But the next
morning, Sebastian's family decides to play matchmaker for
the couple, and they convince Sebastian to go through with
the "un" wedding festivities, with Lulu as the guest of honor.
Sebastian knows his family is setting him up, but he's
finding it difficult to protest when his instincts keep
drawing him to Lulu. With only days before he's scheduled
to ship out, he understands why Lulu keeps pushing him away,
but that doesn't stop him from wanting her in his arms,
I'M YOUR SANTA will make you appreciate the importance of
family. Lori Foster's novella is a real treat. I fell in
love with Levi, who is a drool-worthy hero with a heart of
gold. Playboy Jeremy in Karen Kelley's novella is more
difficult to like, especially because poor Bailey spends so
much time feeling unnecessary guilt while he's lying to her.
Dianne Castell's hero, Sebastian is honorable and sexy, but
I had a problem with him having sex with Lulu just five
minutes after they meet. However, the secondary characters
are fun, and the plot is unusual. This book is
light-hearted holiday fare.
He's making a list, he's checking it twice—and he's hoping
you're more naughty than nice. He's your own personal Saint
Nick—sans beard, belly, and red suit—and he's coming
special delivery in this sizzling collection...
