Description

From six of your favorite New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors… Six ALL NEW Christmas stories guaranteed to warm up your holidays…

Melt for Me (Against All Odds #2.5) by Elisabeth Naughton

Yuletide Spirits pub owner Ella Maclean doesn’t do holidays. In fact, Ella would be perfectly happy if the calendar jumped from November to January, bypassing December all together. Known as Holly, North Carolina’s infamous Scrooge, Ella’s singular focus is to capitalize on the silly tourists who flock to the winter-wonderland-themed community so she can forget everything she lost on a cold, snowy night not long ago. Until, that is, rock’s latest “it” guy, Tate Kendrick, rolls back into town.

Ella hasn’t seen Tate in years, but Tate’s suddenly determined to break through her icy barriers. She tries to resist the rocker’s wicked charm, but one touch is all it takes for the heat they shared as teens to burst right back into flame. As first love rekindles, Ella’s frozen heart slowly begins to thaw. But when trouble linked to the rock star strikes at the pub and threatens to shatter everything she’s built, Ella can’t help but wonder who this new Tate Kendrick really is. Because as much as she wants to believe he’s the holiday miracle she’s been too afraid to hope for, something inside her warns he could be nothing more than her nightmare before Christmas.

Sweet Rapture by Alexandra Ivy

Meg Anderson has returned to her home in Holly, North Carolina after she discovered her relationship with Dylan Cain was nothing more than a lie.  The last thing she expects is for Dylan to be her new tenant.  Or the realization that he might be the only thing standing between her and a killer…

THE SPY WHO CAME FOR CHRISTMAS by Cynthia Eden

Everyone in town thinks that Jemma White is as sweet as the delicious treats she makes at her chocolate shop—but they’re wrong. Jemma is ready to let her wild side out, and she’s just found the perfect man to make all of her fantasies come true. Grayson Cole is a too-sexy-to-be-true stranger who has escaped to Holly for the holidays. He is her perfect temptation, and Jemma can’t wait to steam up the cold winter nights with him. But when danger from Grayson’s past follows him to town, she realizes that the man she is falling for has been keeping some very dark secrets…secrets that may just get them both killed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, BABY by Katie Reus

After unexpectedly inheriting a bookstore, Nora and her younger sister settled in Holly, NC, a place where it’s Christmas year-round. As the legal guardian for her sister the past few years, romance has been the last thing on Nora’s mind. But she broke her rules for the town’s golden boy—former SEAL Jackson O’Connor. When Jackson does something stupid and almost loses Nora for good, he realizes just how far he’s willing to go for the woman who’s stolen his heart. But it might take a Christmas miracle to get Nora to give him a second chance.

SINFUL IN SNOW by Laura Wright

Billionaire Back In Town: Gabriel Fox is a ruthless, heartless, soulless grinch. His only goal in coming to Holly, North Carolina is to ruin Carol Cardini’s Christmas. Like she ruined his—and his life—ten years ago. Now that her business is in trouble, he’s finally found the way. But the beautiful owner of Christmas Carol’s Shop and Crafts won’t allow her dream to be destroyed. Not by revenge, and certainly not by the sexiest man she’s ever known. She can, however offer an apology, and a chair at her holiday table. But can a grinch’s cold heart be warmed and healed by the love of a good woman—and the magic of Christmas spirit?

HOME ADVANTAGE by Skye Jordan

NHL super star, Meier Grant, finds himself sidelined for a bum shoulder and sentenced to three weeks recovery—in his hometown of Holly, North Carolina. But an extended family stay isn’t on his holiday wish list, especially when his parents are more interested in capitalizing on his fame than much needed family bonding. So when he learns the high school beauty and so out-of-his-league Faith Nicholas is suddenly single, and even sexier ten years later, home doesn’t seem so bad. Not when it includes spending some quality bonding time with Faith. Meier may have some of the best moves in the league, but will they be enough to win a woman deserving of forever?

Review

These six bestselling authors have put together an all around NAUGHTY good holiday read! The stories can be read in any order. The primary connection between stories is the beautiful setting of Holly, North Carolina. Each author presents a delightfully written holiday tale; putting this reader in the mood for the upcoming holiday season. 

Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I love absolutely everything about it - except the shopping part. However, even I do not think I could take up residence in a town that celebrates Christmas 365 days a year. However, it is the perfect place to find love this season. I recommend visiting Holly, so you can witness the locals find romance for yourself. 

This is my list in order of preference
The Spy Who Came For Christmas by Cynthia Eden 5~Stars
Sinful In Snow by Laura Wright 4~Stars
Home Advantage by Skye Jordan 4~Stars
Melt For Me by Elisabeth Naughton 3~Stars
Merry Christmas, Baby by Katie Reus 3~Stars
