Synopsis

Cowboys, Cops, and Kilts: 8 Seasonally Seductive Romances from Bestselling Authors
*~*~*~*
COWBOY JACKPOT: CHRISTMAS
Cowboy Jackpot Series, Book 1
Randi Alexander
Award Winning Novella. A lucky first kiss in front of a Las Vegas slot machine pays off big for bull rider Boone Hancock and college student Gigi Colberg-Staub.

Our 4 Star Review

Boone has just won at a rodeo and he's ready to have some fun. Gigi is in Vegas for her Birthday and the Christmas Holiday when Cowboy Boone shows interest in her and a lucky kiss helps her win big it's the start of something amazing. Or is it?

Gigi was a strong lead and Boone was fun as long as he let his feelings take hold. This one was a fun quick read and am excited to read more in the series.

*~*~*~*
A NAUGHTY NOELLE
The 19th Precinct, Book 1.5
Ann Bruce
When injured vice cop Sergio Ramirez accepts Noelle Mason’s offer to help him, she has no idea the danger she faces, most of it from her desire to share her bed with him.

Our 4 Star Review

This one was short but I loved the story line. I enjoyed Noelle and her compassion even with someone she didn't know. She allowed his past actions to show who Sergio really was and kept him safe even when she didn't know what was going on.

HOLIDAY SURPRISE: UNWRAPPED
Aliyah Burke
Recuperating in wintery Massachusetts, Heath Dixon gives cold-hating Kassia Green something much hotter to focus on. But can he keep her after Christmas? Like…forever?

Our 4 Star Review

Kassia is house sitting for her cousin over the holidays and when she comes back from a day of shopping she gets one heck of a surprise. Heath has just gotten home from his tour and he's a bit broken, but Kassia's spirit bring him back to life. Can what they have be more than a holiday fling?

Kassia was a firecracker and she was a blast to read about. I loved how she tells it like it is and didn't allow Heath to BS her. Heath had a hard exterior, but once you unwrapped him you got a real sweetie. Loved theses two and how they fit.

*~*~*~*
CHRISTMAS ANGEL
Opal Carew
Given one chance to break the curse which has held Angelique in its grip for two hundred years, she is faced with a heart-rending decision. Can she sacrifice Nick's happiness for her own freedom?

Our 3.5 Star Review

A curse turned her into a treetop Angel for more than 150 years. Now given the chance to escape her prison, but can she doom someone else to the same fate?

The story was ok I just needed more background and information from the characters. Even though I don't mind a fast paced usually but this one just a bit much since it didn't give allot of extra info added in. I also felt that her knowledge in bed was a bit unbelievable for a virgin.

*~*~*~*
A HIGHLANDER FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Dawn Halliday
In the wintery Highland mountains, Aileen and Niall unleash their forbidden passion. But Aileen is promised to another this Christmas, and the wicked Lowlander will stop at nothing to have her.

Our 4 Star Review

Aileen was 15 when she became married to a horrible man 10 years later and he's dead, but will her next arranged marriage be even worse? When Niall comes to take her to her brother to learn her fate feelings she didn't understand as a young girl come out and their attraction to each other is immense, but with their positions worlds apart can they ever truly be together? What will it take before they can truly find happiness?

Loved the journey these two took to get to each other throughout the journey and even though at the beginning no matter how much they wanted each other they both thought of their sense of duty until they realized how much was really at stake being apart. Aileen's strength to survive all she has made her a great character to root for to get their HEA.

ILLICIT CHRISTMAS
Yvette Hines
Even during the holidays a woman can have one reckless night that will change her life forever...especially when the man she was with is determined to prove they belong together.

Our 4 Star Review

Amber has finally left her cheating ex husband behind and is starting over in a new town, but on her way there she nearly runs over a man is the terrible weather. After helping him and feeling an intense attraction she decides to give into fantasy and offers him one night, her way. But after that night when they find themselves working together Chris decides to do everything he can to prove one night was never enough.

LOVED Chris he was such a sweetie and his persistence and fun ways of showing Amber he wanted to more were a blast to read about. I loved how he was willing to put himself out there to get what makes him feel alive and be happy again. Amber was stubborn and with good reason although there were times I just wanted to slap her and say "Get on with it already" in the end though they found their happiness and I loved it.

*~*~*~*
HER XMAS PRESENT
Christin Lovell
After being apart from each other for a year, Libby and Tyler realize their feelings for one another are more than platonic. Are they willing to risk years of friendship on a chance at love?

Our 5 Star Review

This one was my favorite of the bunch even though it was also the shortest.

After being best friends for years Tyler decides to go for it and tell her he loves her and hopes Libby feels the same.

Libby was insecure because of her weight but I loved that Tyler was able to show her the truth of her beauty, not in spite of but because of her generous curves. Loved seeing two best friends find their true feeling for each other.

*~*~*~*
ALL SHE WANTS FOR CHRISTMAS
Paige Tyler
Hayley Knowles has always fantasized about getting spanked by her husband, Conner. But how can she possibly ever get her husband to do it, especially since she’s too shy to tell him? This is the holiday season, though, so maybe Hayley might get exactly what she wants for Christmas!

Our 4 Star Review

Hayley wants to get spanked by her husband and when she lets that slip to her best friends they shock her by about their first times(getting spanked of course). Had a blast seeing each character tell their story and be open with their best friends. With each girls different personality you got to see their different reactions to how it happened and how it helped Hayley figure out how to bring the subject up to her husband.

Funny, kinky, quick read.
