One year ago, one of the best BDSM anthologies came out and we were all treated to some of the best kink stories by some of the hottest authors out there, including Livia Grant, Jennifer Bene, Renee Rose, Maren Smith, Measha Stone, and more! Those incredible authors are included in this year’s Redux, along with Sue Lyndon, Alta Hensley, Maggie Ryan and Jane Henry!
I don’t know about other readers/bloggers, but I don’t always read or enjoy every story in an anthology. It’s very rare that I get this excited over one, and I got super excited when this hit my e-reader! I read every single story in this anthology because I love ALL of these authors, and let me tell you, it was AMAZING! HOT! Totally turn on your air conditioner if you have one, because OMG….these ladies know how to make a girl sweat!
Livia Grant and Jennifer Bene: We start off our anthology with our beloved Jaxson, Chase, and

Emma discussing what to do for the current year’s Valentine’s Day party along with Dungeon Master Spencer Cook, who is concerned about what Jaxson was doing on the West coast!
Unrestrained by Jennifer Bene: One of my favorite dark erotica authors, Jennifer is one of the two creators of this amazing series! Our D/s pairing for this story is strong sub Bianca who needs a dom who is even stronger than her. She finds that with tall, built, and tattooed Viking Silas. Jennifer writes an extremely hot couple here that doesn’t hold back. Their scenes aren’t for the faint of heart, (Though Black Light isn’t your usual lighter side BDSM). She proves she knows how to make her fans squirm. (In all the good ways!) 5 Stars
Bent by Livia Grant:  Livia is the second creator or the Black Light world, and another hot BDSM author (ok, they are all pretty incredible!) Gaby is a socialite who steals lawyer Connor’s invite to the event. Gaby ends up paying, and lands on ABDL. I’m not telling if you don’t know. I will say that it wasn’t for me and it rather icked me out, but in the lifestyle, as they say, “Your kink is not my kink, but your kink is ok.” Livia is a great author and this is still well written like everything else she does. 4 stars.
Forced by Renee Rose: Renee is another one of my favorite authors. She’s done so many books that I love, and there are way too many to name here. (I’d be here all day!) Mari ends up at the event because her sister is going and she is worried about her. She also bet her that she wouldn’t last through the night. She ends up with Victor, who thinks she’s more of a domme. But he soon finds out that she likes it rough. And you’ll really love this 5 Star read!
Doctored by Sue Lyndon: Sue Lyndon is a really awesome author who writes some of the steamiest D/s romance there is! Her pair in this story, Hunter Knox and Natalie have one of the sexiest medical play sessions ever! 4.5 Stars
Shameless by Maren Smith: Maren is the creator of another series that has just knocks my socks off, and this Black Light Novella is no different. Hadlee is fresh out of a relationship with a wannabe dom who has turned her into a woman who dislikes herself and sees herself as “Piggy Girl” It’s up to Gareth to show Hadlee that she’s a beautiful woman, but Ethan doesn’t plan on making it easy on him. This was one of my favorites in the Novella! 5 Stars!
Edge by Alta Hensley: Alta is one of the queens of kink, and she shows it here in her novella. Melinda finally divorces her senator husband after a year of cheating, verbal abuse, and changing her personality. She is finally free to go back to her dom and the man she truly loves, Dean Casey. Though Dean isn’t going to make it easy for her to just walk right back in. 4.5 Stars
Confessions by Measha Stone: This one is one totally hot friends to lovers steamy kinkfest as dom Grayson finally makes his move on his best friend’s little sister Dani. He has had enough of her sass and going out to underground clubs. Now, she’s going to be his! Measha writes a great build-up and get together of these two and you are definitely cheering for them by the end! 5 stars!
Surrender by Maggie Ryan: Another writer that I truly love, Maggie writes a truly terrific story of a woman who needs to learn how to stop topping from the bottom. Marty is a sub who acts more like a domme and bosses all of the doms around. She also has given up on trying to get the attention of her best friend Charlie’s brother-in-law Owen. But Owen is not a man who will tolerate a sub topping from the bottom. He decides to teach Marty what the meaning of submission is. A truly sexy and hot story! 5 Stars.
Taken by Jane Henry: Jane Henry is truly a mega star of this genre and proves it with this story! The best of the anthology, a woman who tightly controls every aspect of her life is about to lose control to the one man she can’t keep her control with! Della ends up getting paired with a blast from her past, her ex-husband Brayden, and she’s about to find out that their stubborness may just be the thing that rekindles their relationship! Part of what was so fantastic about this novella was that Jane had an epilogue to this story that wrapped it up nicely. 5 Stars!

As we come to a close on the night, Spencer grabs Jaxson before he retires for the night with his subs and his own sub and goes over the events that happened that evening. You’ll want to read, as this will be the basis for even more Black Light! So pick up a copy of this amazing novella anthology and Happy Reading my kinky friends!!!

TIED UP FOR CHRISTMAS By Desiree Holt

THE DOMINANT WISH By Robin L. Rotham

Review

Wicked Winter is a totally amazing anthology with some of the most incredible authors in erotic romance today! I completely enjoyed just about every single story in this set. Some of my favorites are:

The Dominant Wish by Robin L Rotham: 60 Year old Grace has a special visitor on Christmas eve who grants her a special christmas wish. She longs to be with her dominant lover again.

Winter Solstice by Eden Bradley: Destiny Walker ducks out of a rain storm and sees a psychic who tells her she’s about to meet her soul mate. She ends up running into a man in the pouring rain. He might just be her destiny.

Claiming Tiny: Missy is a club girl and Tiny wants her for his own even if it’s not the norm. But a misunderstanding has her past rearing its ugly head, and Tiny and the boys have to run to rescue her before it’s too late.

The rest of the stories were all wonderful too, but these were my favorites of the bunch. It was just a spectacular read!

TIED UP FOR CHRISTMAS by Desiree Holt

Dealing with a messy and humiliating breakup with her Dom, Bree Donovan welcomed the invitation to leave Chicago for a meeting in Texas. An impulsive attendance at a private BDSM gathering wiped all other thoughts from her mind the moment Rafe Morales claimed her as his for the evening…and maybe beyond.

THE DOMINANT WISH by Robin L. Rotham

Once upon a time, Grace Kendrick loved a dominant man. But when Jared McLain asked for more than she was ready to give, she ran away…and paid dearly for thirty years. Now a birthday wish has landed her in the past and back in Jared’s bed, and this time there’s nothing she won’t do for him.

But there’s a catch. The clock is ticking on Grace’s youthful new body and she has only a few hours to explore the erotic delights of her own submission with Jared and his best friend Alec before the clock strikes twelve, returning her to a lonely future. How stupid to wish for just one more night–she should have gone for happily ever after!

Fortunately, fairy godmothers usually have contingency plans…

WINTER SOLSTICE by Eden Bradley

Do soul mates truly exist? A chance reading with a psychic on Winter Solstice eve has Destiny Walker wondering. When she runs into the gorgeous Reece Kellan, their sizzling connection goes deeper than mind and body—but is it really fate, or simply the most intense sensual experience either of them has ever had?

REMEMBER WHEN by SL Carpenter

Sometimes memories of the past hold lessons for the future. Bride-to-be Pam learns hers as she spends some down time with her Grandma—a woman who sure knows how to tell a spicy, funny tale. Lust, laughter and love…Pam will hear reminiscences of all three. And understand why the most important of all is love.

UNDONE TOY by Lila Dubois

Kiara is happy to model for a winter wonderland BDSM photoshoot, until she learns that the man who will be topping her is the only man she’s ever called Master. Ice is cold, but the scenes they perform are scorching, and in the end she’ll have to decide if she can overcome her fear of the past, and risk her heart for a chance at love.

CLAIMING TINY: A Charon MC Novella by Khloe Wren

Badass biker Ryan ‘Tiny’ Nelson has no plans to settle down. But when the feisty Mercedes ‘Missy’ Soto shows up at the Charon MC clubhouse, it only takes one taste before they’re both hooked. When Missy’s past catches up with her and she goes on the run, can Tiny find the woman he’s fallen for in time to give her a Christmas to remember, or is she lost to him forever?

A SECRET CHRISTMAS by LK Shaw

Four couples all want something different for Christmas this year. Penny and Marcus want a baby, Connor and Bridget need to feed their sadist and masochist sides, Miles want to marry Josie, and Phebe is ready to fully submit to Donovan. With sex so hot it’ll melt the winter snow, A Secret Christmas will have you begging for more.

RIO: Christmas in Paradise by Sabrina Sol

When workaholic CFO Chase Simon is forced to take a tropical Christmas vacation, he sure as hell doesn’t expect to enjoy it. But when he finds out that he’ll be spending the next seven days with Rio, a sexy celebrity dancer from his past, his doubts begin to fade.

 

SNOWBOUND AT CHRISTMAS by Christine Ashworth

Trapped with her boss in a remote cabin during a snowstorm, their pent-up passions explode into the hottest sex Kitty has ever had…but Logan has decreed once she leaves the cabin, their professional and personal relationship ends. Now, all Kitty wants for Christmas is Logan’s heart. To get it, she’ll have to do battle with the ghost of his Christmas past.

KG Logo

Enter one of the kinkiest, most Daddy-centric anthologies on the market to be released this holiday season! It’s a Daddy Dom Christmas! Chock full of tales about daddies and their baby girls!
There are lots of stories in here to entertain, and I can honestly say I’ve read this from cover to cover, and while age play isn’t a big favorite of mine, some of these stories made the book worth reading.
My absolute favorites were Build-A-Daddy by Maren Smith, where a lonely young woman tries to build her perfect daddy in a Build-A-Bear store and finds much more than she bargained for when she gets stuck in a snow storm.
While I’m a big fan of Sue Lyndon’s, Papa’s Little Bride was a bit of a conundrum for me. It’s supposed to be set in the far future, but reads very much like the Victorian times, maybe a later era, and that for me soured the story.
Santa Daddy by Katherine Deane was a big hit as it was a continuation of a favorite story from Undercover Doms, an Anthology from last year We revisit Connor and Alex, our undercover duo. This time they are playing mall elf, (Alex) and photographer, (Connor). They are at the mall trying to figure out where a group of teens are getting drugs, but whenAlex is pulling away from Connor, it’s the spirit of Christmas that comes through for them all!
Mountain man Daddy’s Christmas Surprise by Kara Kelley was also enjoyable enough that I purchased the original book. I’m not going to ruin the surprise and say what It is, but it was fairly obvious from the start what Avery’s big surprise is for Mike. Nuff said.
The rest of the stories in this book were certainly enjoyable as well, again, I’m not a fan of age play so much, and while a certain amount of the daddy dynamic is fine, regressing to a 5 year old just doesn’t do it for me personally. But everyone has the right to their own kink, as long as it’s Safe, Sane, Consensual, and everyone is of legal age.So have fun!

Excerpts/Bios/Social Media

Excerpt1

Papa’s Little Bride by Sue Lyndon

PG-ish excerpt for Papa’s Little Bride:
He runs a hand through his hair. “I want you to live here, Faith. With me. I will give you a room of your very own. I will take care of you, and you will want for nothing.”
“You want me as your mistress?” I ask hesitantly. As I await his response, I decide being Mr. Freemont’s mistress would not be so bad. Belonging to one man would surely be better than spreading my legs for multiple men a day at Madam Angelic’s establishment. In the back of my mind, I’ve always known it would be a possibility that I’d end up working as a prostitute in order to survive. Of course, I had intended to exhaust all other avenues of work first.
“No, not as my mistress.” He grasps my hand. “As my wife, by trial.”
“I’m afraid I don’t understand.”
“We would be married for a trial period of thirty days. At the end of those thirty days, we can decide whether to remain married or to separate. If we decided to separate for some reason, I would see that you remain taken care of for the rest of your life.”
“I see. So at the end of the thirty days, we both decide? You would not force me to stay with you if I did not wish it?”
“Precisely. I’m not in the habit of keeping wives against their will,” he says with a wry smile that serves to ease the tension. “However, I will be upfront with you about my expectations. I am not looking for an ordinary wife or an ordinary marriage.” He pauses for a moment. “You would live as my little girl, and you would call me Papa. I would care for you, and guide you, even discipline you when necessary. I would be a strict but loving father figure to you, Faith, and in time, when and if I think you are ready, I would take you as my wife-in-truth. I couldn’t help but notice how you blushed when I called you little girl and young lady, and I see that you keep squirming. The very idea of being my sweet little girl, and my wife, has no doubt shocked you, but it has also made you feel achy between your thighs, hasn’t it?”
I’m stunned speechless.

NSFW excerpt from Papa’s Little Bride:

My sweet, but naughty, little girl obediently lays over my lap. A thrill jolts through me to have her in this position, with her bottom jutted up high and her legs slightly parted to reveal the slickness glimmering at the slit of her smooth pink cunny. She soon gasps and tries to place her thighs together, and I respond by shifting her over one knee, forcing her legs to fall open. I clamp my free leg atop her fidgeting ones and cup her behind cheeks, each in turn, massaging and inspecting her luscious pale globes.
“You will remain spread like this during your punishment, young lady. There will be no hiding from Papa. Your cunny will remain on full display at all times while I’m reddening your bottom cheeks. I realize this might embarrass you, especially because I’ll be able to see every little glimmer of moisture, and no doubt when you squirm, your secret inner folds, but you were a naughty little girl and this added embarrassment is part of your punishment. This is what happens to naughty little girls. They get turned over their papa’s knee for a good, hard spanking.” With that, I raise my hand and let the first strike fall. My palm descends on her right cheek with a resounding smack, and I waste no time in delivering the second blow to her left cheek.
“Oh! Ouch!” She wiggles, but I easily hold her in place.
“None of that,” I scold, alternating smacks from one reddening cheek to the other, peppering her entire bottom with sharp swats. “You’re getting this spanking whether you like it or not.”

Build-A-Daddy by Maren Smith

Excerpt:

She wished she hadn’t stopped in Wichita for that Five-Hour Energy shot with a forty-ounce Code Red chaser.
“I really have to pee,” she told her bear. Supposedly, somewhere in all that fast-falling snow was a bathroom. She couldn’t think of anything more stupid than blindly setting out in search of it. On the other hand, if she just sat here, she was going to wet her pants and these were cloth seats. Also, her Little didn’t like diaper play.
Wind buffeted the car. Already swirling snow was building on the windows. Even with the heater running, it was storming hard enough to blanket all but the sections of glass closest to the vents. The underside melted, but the upper layer accumulated, growing thicker by the minute. She watched thin rivulets of water slip along under the snow like tears.
Why was it that the longer a person thought about having to pee, the worse the sensation became? The pressure of the seatbelt was too much, so Aubrey took it off. She tried to find a more comfortable, less bladder-crunched way to sit. She bounced a couple times. It wasn’t working. In the short amount of time she’d spent parked here, the swirling storm had completely covered every window and presumably, the rest of her vehicle. Getting out was a bad idea, but she had to do something to relieve the pressure.
Leaning over the backrest, she hooked her jacket off the rear seat and pulled it on. She shoved open the driver’s-side door just in time to see bright, yellow light splash over the door and her arm. She yanked her arm back in just as the pickup truck slid to a stop beside her, shaving the door clean off her car.
In the half-second of heart-pounding quiet which directly followed, there was a lot Aubrey couldn’t remember. She didn’t remember crab-crawling into the passenger seat until her back butted against the other door. She sure didn’t remember grabbing Potentially Demonic Bear because never in her wildest imaginings did she imagine hugging him would have saved her from anything. At best, he was only a Build-A-Bear, he just didn’t have that kind of power. At worst… well, the jury was still out on which side of the whole Good vs. Evil Spectrum he swung.
Staring wide-eyed and horrified at the jet-black truck and gaping snow-filled hole where her door used to be, Aubrey honestly didn’t know if she’d screamed. She couldn’t remember making a sound. Not until that truck rocked, the window cranked down, and a dark-haired man in a well-worn brown felt cowboy hat popped his head into view. The truck was high enough, so he had to scrunch down to see her, but his eyes were no less wide than hers, and when he saw her, his face paled.
“Christ on a cracker,” he swore, peering through the narrow gap between the bottom of his window frame and the top of her now quite broken car. “Lady, I’m so sorry. I couldn’t see a thing.”
In that instant, two thoughts centered themselves in her mind—a mind blown empty by the shock of what had just happened. First, how was she going to get to Nebraska or hell, even the next town, in a car without a driver’s door? And second, from his hat to the white collar of his t-shirt to the black collar of his leather jacket, the man looked just like her Build-A-Bear. And her Build-A-Bear looked exactly the way she had imagined her cowboy Daddy would when she’d been hugging the little cloth heart.
“Holy shit,” she said stunned, her breath steaming the snow-flecked air as it came swirling into her car. She hadn’t built a bear. “I built a Daddy!”

Maren Smith
“For me, romance and kink have always gone hand in hand. I love strong, authoritative men—men who are both ready, willing and able to leave the lady of their choosing red–bottomed and weeping for her own good. Writing has given me the wonderful freedom to explore my kinky side without feeling ‘weird’. Even better, with the invention of the Internet, I can write what I love and know it will be appreciated by people with the same interests. Although I’ve been writing spanking romances for more than twenty years, it’s only been in the last five that I’ve truly broken out of my self-imposed shell to explore the other aspects of my submissive nature. Fortunate enough to live with my Dominant, I am an author, a Little and a submissive for the love of my life. Between that and my membership at my local Dungeons, there are very few things that I write about that I haven’t tried at least once.”

Santa Daddy by Katherine Deane

Excerpt – Rated R
Kris Kringle Candy Cane Treatment

Connor was so proud of his brave, little girl. She played hard, she wore her emotions on her sleeve. And he’d known for a long time now that she wanted to go further, but she was scared to try. Luckily, he had gotten an early Christmas present to go with their cane. He laid the cane down on the table and picked up the other item he’d brought back that she hadn’t paid particular attention to. She would soon enough though.
“Okay, little girl. Daddy is going to punish you for being so naughty. He’s going to give you the extra special Kris Kringle candy cane treatment.”
He opened the large candy cane and held it front of her mouth. It was only four inches long and approximately an inch in diameter. The perfect implement for what he had in mind.
“Open your mouth and suck, baby.”
Her eyes widened, but she opened her mouth and accepted the huge peppermint candy with the hook on the end.
He pulled it out and some of her saliva dripped down as he held it in her line of sight. “Do you know where this is going, baby girl?”

USA Today bestselling author Katherine Deane is a multi-published, top 100 romantic and BDSM author and romantic at heart.
She loves cheese, red wine, chocolate, and snuggling up with her daughters’ kittens while reading a good book.
When not reading, or writing, you can find her knitting, sewing, crafting, or doing pretty much anything to keep her hands busy. She has taken over the dining room AKA craft room, much to her husband’s dismay. In one of her books, an energetic “craftaholic” would find herself over her husband’s knee for losing an important document in a pile of bi-cone crystals and mod podge. Her real life, and the people in them, give her plenty of ideas to work with.
Katherine has dubbed herself the queen of cheese. Not only is she a former Midwestern Cheese Head; she also loves to incorporate it into her books.
In her opinion, all romance deserves at least one cheesy scene that makes you cry.

Excerpt1
Mountain Man Daddy’s Christmas Surprise by Kara Kelley

Excerpt: “You weren’t coming outside like that, were you?” He yanked off his toque with a growl, kicked off his boots and shucked out of his coat. Snow landed at his feet and began melting.
“I was hot,” she said meekly. “But, no. I just realized what I was wearing and was going to change when you came through the door.”
He hung his coat on the hook and took the mugs from her, holding both handles in one of his large hands so he could brush the snow from his hair and beard.
“Go ahead then, little girl.” He gave her a half smile and her heart fluttered happily. “Not that I don’t enjoy looking at your legs, but you’re going to catch a cold.”
Her brows rose at his words. “Every time you say that I tell you that you don’t catch a cold from the weather, you catch a cold from a virus.” She watched as he rubbed his big hand over his beard seemingly in consideration of her statement. Rocky seemed to grow bored by their conversation and walked to the woodstove, grunted and threw himself down in front of it.
“And every time you say that, I’m usually taking care of you, making you soup and handing you tissues the next week.”
She rolled her eyes. “That’s just a coincidence. I’m the one who goes to town and people give me germs.”
“Did you just roll your eyes at me, young lady?” His voice was deep, low and threatening.
She shivered but grinned cheekily. “Umm, I sure did.” She turned, spun on the balls of her feet, and ran into the bedroom, knowing he still held the two cups and would have to set them down before chasing her.
Just as he flew into the room, at a speed a man of his size shouldn’t be capable of, Rocky bustled in behind him.
“Stay back, Mountain Man or my bear will attack,” she said with a giggle, pointing at Rocky. “You hear him growling?”
“Black bears don’t growl, little one.” He stalked closer to the bed, and she scrambled off the other side. Rocky was silently but intently watching.
“Hmm, learn something new every day,” she replied and shifted to match his movement, keeping them an equal distance apart.
“I plan on teaching you something else.”
His smirk was hidden, but she knew by the sparkle in his eyes that he was being playful. Oh, she’d end up over his knee, but it would be for fun and it would end in the most delicious way.
As he lunged across the bed at her, Rocky made a deep pulsing throaty noise that made Mike freeze.
“I thought you said they don’t growl?” Avery’s stomach quivered.
“That wasn’t a growl, Avery, but it was a threat.”
Avery looked at the bear, large and intimidating, filling the doorway with his mass. He hadn’t moved his eyes from Mike for even a second. Mike rolled and sat up on the bed.
“Do you think a huge storm is coming and Rocky’s trying to warn us?” she asked.
“No, he’s protecting you. I’m just not sure why.” Mike scratched his beard, eying the bear warily.
“He’s never done this before. He sees us play all the time. Hell, he’s seen you punishing me.”
“Right.” He narrowed his eyes and shot her a quick warning glance. “Don’t go anywhere alone.”
His deep voice reverberated through her. “What?” Her brow furrowed. “But this is why you taught me how to use the gun, and made me pore over books on wildlife, and got me the car. So I didn’t need a chaperone all the time.”
“Avery, I won’t argue over this. Something’s changed and until I know what it is, you’re on lockdown. You don’t leave this cabin without me.”
He looked at her, the playful sternness replaced by the real kind that made her belly sink like a rock and her nether cheeks tingle in dread.
“Understood?”
“Yes.” She nodded and he rose from the bed. If she couldn’t tell how concerned he was by his pallor and tight expression, she could tell by the way he hadn’t made her repeat her ‘yes’ and add ‘daddy’. Mike was worried. Avery chewed her lip. And that made her worry, too.

About Kara Kelley:

Kara Kelley is a naughty Canuck (that’s a Canadian for those of you that don’t know), who loves spanks, a little bondage, tantalizing creative sex (trust me, honey this sh*t is gonna rock our world) and TIM HORTON’S. She’s full of playful mischief, loyalty and maybe some stubbornness, but she’ll never admit it. And she believes living in a secluded cabin in the woods (including good WIFI, a stocked Kindle, and plenty of chocolate) with her husband would be absolute bliss.

The Daddy Contract by Adaline Raine

Excerpt:

PG:
“Did you see me on the couch last night?” She twirled a piece of her hair around her finger as she waited for his answer. She was afraid her nighttime recollections might be real. “I thought I fell asleep there.”
“Yeah, you feel asleep mostly sitting up. Your body was all scrunched, so I carried you to bed.”
“Oh. Well, thank you.” She forced a smile. “I don’t really remember all the details, but I dreamed you kissed me good-night.”
“You opened your eyes and appeared to be wide awake, but I didn’t kiss you.” He winked. “You did grab my face and kiss me for a while though.”
“Hm.” She forced her focus on the coffee pot, willing it to brew faster to get her out of this awkward conversation. It hadn’t been just a simple peck. No, in her half asleep state, it had turned into a full blown make-out session. No wonder it had felt real. It had been! “So, uh where were you headed before the storm came through?”
“I was on my way to stay with a friend. He and his wife throw a big party every year after Christmas, but I was going to stay a few extra days. The weather thwarted the trip, so I headed this way. I hope you don’t mind too much.” He grinned. “Am I imposing on your holiday plans?”
“No. I didn’t have any to start with. Did Rhett send you out to check on me?” When was the last time they had seen each other? Probably a year to the day. Even without her snowbird parents, this house was the gathering place for Christmas Eve except for this year. Kayleigh had told Rhett she wanted to be alone. Stupid blizzard messed up her agenda of getting drunk and watching sad movies.
“Your brother had nothing to do with the weather. Maybe this storm was supposed to send me here. No one should be alone on Christmas.”

18+:
“Oof.” Kayleigh landed with a groan and knocked her thoughts back to the present. Three sharp taps hit against the very top of her right thigh followed by the same number and intensity on the left. His palm seared the sensitive juncture, still sore from the earlier round, and she kicked her feet out. Bastian hooked a leg over hers, locking her in place. Part of her regretted the challenge she’d thrown out, but the other sang in relief. She’d tested. He’d responded. “I’m sorry!”
“You’ll be more sorry when I’m done with you.”
“I didn’t mean whatever you thought I meant.”
“No more talking. I made a shiny new ball gag last weekend, and I’m happy to test it on you.”

His Little Noelle by Maggie Ryan

Excerpts:

#1: R

Davis grinned as he stood beside the bed. “Close your eyes, and don’t open them until I say.”
She immediately obeyed, nipples protruding like hard little bullets at his instruction and the endless possibilities of what her daddy had planned. His roaming fingers and gentle tugs on her nipples had kept her aroused throughout. His strokes across her sex, his quick flicks against her clit had her entire body thrumming. She felt like a fine instrument that he played with expertise, surprising her with the tempo, the cadence of every stroke, every probe, eliciting her vocal accompaniment as he conducted his symphony. He’d left her panting, primed, and so very eager for him to reach for her again, to play the final chord, the crescendo that would fill the air with the sounds of an extremely satisfied woman. Instead, she knelt, her eyes tightly closed, straining to hear his movements, wondering what he was doing.
So badly wanting to peek as she heard him moving about the room, she denied herself, not wanting to ruin the surprise. Even the sinking of the mattress as he joined her on the bed did not cause her eyelids to flutter open. After another moment or two, with a bit more jostling that she couldn’t quite figure out the purpose of, he spoke.
“You may open your eyes.”
Once she did, she could only gape and then giggle. He was sitting with his back against the headboard, a big grin on his face.
“What’s the matter, little girl? Haven’t you ever seen Santa Claus before?” She couldn’t really yet speak as he shook his head, causing the huge pom-pom on the tip of the red hat he wore to sway. Large fingers stroked down the long white beard hanging down to his chest, but it was his free hand—the hand that could deliver devilish pain or provide exquisite pleasure—which encircled his erection, that captured and held her gaze.
“I believe some little girl never got the chance to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what she wanted for Christmas.”
He released his beard and cock and reached for her. Crawling to him, she could feel her face flush and her pussy gush… not to sit on his lap, but to straddle him, her hand replacing his to guide the head of his cock to the entrance of her sex. Lowering down slowly, she moaned as inch by inch she took him inside. His girth always caused a bit of discomfort, yet she didn’t even try to disguise the mews of pleasure she experienced as he slowly filled her.
“Need some help?” he asked, his hands slipping to hold her waist.
“Yes, please,” she managed, gasping when he lifted his hips to drive the final few inches of his shaft deep inside her, pulling her down until her bottom settled on his groin.
“Comfy?” he teased.
“Very,” she said softly, amazed as always that he actually fit inside her.
Davis grinned and allowed his hands to slip behind her, fingers splaying against her buttocks. “I’ve heard you’ve been a very good girl this year.”

#2: PG

She followed the direction his finger was pointing and shook her head. “No way I’m going to climb up a mountain and then careen down on some flimsy sled. I don’t have a death wish!”
“Don’t worry, we’re not going sledding,” Davis said.
“He’s right, and you don’t have to climb. We take the T-bar lift up and then we’re going to race down on toboggans,” Steven confirmed. “Unless, of course, you just want to concede now and go join the little snow babies.”
Noelle just gaped up at the mountain again and then looked at Davis before turning to Steven. “We are so going to beat you! I’ll expect an apology and the biggest funnel cake in Wyoming after you finally slide over the finish line.”
“That’s the spirit,” Steven said, giving her a hug.
“Who knew you were as competitive as the rest of us?” Davis said, pulling her to him.
“You’re a bad influence, Davis Waterford,” she said. “If I die on this mountain, I swear I’ll come back and haunt you for the rest of your life, and it won’t be pretty!”
“You’re not going to die, babygirl. You are going to have a blast!”
All of Davis’ siblings except for Colleen and Paul joined them. Noelle was sure she’d made a huge mistake as soon as she jumped off the lift. She’d not truly expected to be taken so high up the mountain. Though she’d skied before, it had been after taking lessons, and her fate had been in her own hands.
“You know, when I was in ski class, the very first thing the instructor taught us was how to fall. And the girl next to me broke her arm the moment she hit the ground.”
“You don’t have to worry about falling, babe. You’ll be sitting down,” Davis assured her. “Even if something did happen, you wouldn’t have far to fall.”
“You just said I didn’t have to worry about falling!” Noelle protested, punching his arm.
“Of course, keep punching me and you might want to slide down the mountain on your tummy, if you get my drift.”

#2: PG-13

“What’s this?”
“I don’t know, Santa doesn’t tell me everything,” he said with a shrug.
“Well, it has your name on it,” she said, looking at the tag hanging from a ribbon.
“It does?”
Noelle rolled her eyes but giggled and played along. “Yes, see? It says Daddy.”
Taking the package from her, he read the tag. “Actually, it says for Noelle’s Daddy.”
“Same thing, go ahead and open it,” she said, tugging on her second boot.
Davis tied it and then sat next to her on the bed and opened the package. Lifting it up, he watched her eyes and saw the puzzlement in their depths.
“What is it?”
“Bells,” he said, giving the string a shake and hearing a soft chiming fill the room.
“I can hear that, but why would Santa give you bells? They’re pretty, and I guess you can hang them on the door or the tree.”
“You don’t hang them, babygirl, you wear them.”
“Wear them? How?”
“Well, not wear them exactly, you hold them.”
Noelle shrugged. “Okay, have fun with that.”
She was about to jump off the bed when he reached out and laid his hand on her arm. “Not me, you’ll hold them.” He paused and then reached down and patted her bottom. “In your pretty little bum.”
Her eyes grew huge as she looked at the silver bells. “You can’t be serious!”
“Oh, baby, I assure you I am. Now, drop those pants and panties and climb over my lap.”
“Daddy, I can’t wear those! People will hear them!”
“They’ll be muffled all tucked up inside, but, if you want to be a Grinch—”
“I can’t believe I’m doing this,” she said, sliding off the bed and unfastening her jeans. “The last time you put something up my… um, anyway, it wasn’t very comfortable.”
“That’s because it was punishment,” Davis said. “This is funishment.”
“You are nuts,” she said, but he watched her tug down her clothing and saw the gleam in her eyes.

What Happens During The Holidays is an anthology of short stories by 10 different authors. While I’ll admit I haven’t read any of the authors in this anthology before, I really enjoyed the stories in this anthology, though I was a bit frustrated with some of them when they ended abrubtly, probably to continue in another book from the author.

Among my favorite stories in this holiday anthology were the following stories, The Meeting by Lucy Gage, Love Square by Jessica Ingaro, Mahalo by Kelli Jean, (my favorite!) and Big Mistake by Elle Jefferson, (although this is one of the books that ended on a cliff of sorts.)

Not all of these stories were necessarily holiday themed, some happened around the holidays. But it was still an enjoyable selection of stories nonetheless.

About the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Twelve Authors-

Alexandra Ivy is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Alexandra: “I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library.
Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.

Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.

Laura Wright is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. From Laura: “Unlike many of my peers in the writing world, I wasn’t a writer or a reader until I left high school. During my youth I was into theater, song and dance, commercials and boys. I loved romance surely, but I had never read a romance novel until my late teens. With that said, I remember the day I did like it was a moment ago – my aunt gave me the Jude Deveraux novel, Knight in Shining Armor and I couldn’t put it down until the very last word. Then I went straight to the library and got another – then another until I’d read everything she’d ever written. After that, it was McNaught, Howard, Schone, Kleypas, and the Silhouette line, Desire. I instantly loved those emotional, sexy reads, so much so that I began to carve out ideas for my own stories, themes that were unique to me and moved me. In 1997 I enrolled in UCLA extension writing classes, met my mentor and critique partners and since have never stopped writing. I was committed then and I still am now; the need to tell my own romantic stories a full on obsession. My first manuscript was rejected, and though the second one was as well the editor who’d rejected it wanted to see something else from me. I had something (note to authors; always keep working, even after you’ve sent in a proposal) and sent it right away. The day I got the call telling me Desire wanted to buy Cinderella and the Playboy was the best day of my life. That is until I married my husband, and had my two beautiful children. But I must say, writing is much like motherhood – tough, grueling, surprising, delicious and for me, a dream come true.”

Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award.

From Lorelei: “Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns.

About 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Ten:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Tessa Bailey, Lexi Blake, Larissa Ione, Laurelin Paige, and introducing Jenna Jacob and Sierra Simone.

 

Six Dark Tales. Six Sensual Stories. Six Page Turners.

 

ROUGH RHYTHM: A Made In Jersey Novella by Tessa Bailey
Band manager James Brandon never expected to find the satisfaction he’d been chasing, let alone stumble upon it in some sleazy Hollywood meat market. Yet the girl’s quiet pride spoke to him from across the bar. But after losing the grip on his dark desires that one fateful night, James has spent the last four years atoning for letting her down. Rock band drummer Lita Regina has had enough of James’s guilt. She wants the explosive man she met that night in Hollywood. And she’ll stop at nothing to revive him.

DEVOTED: A Masters and Mercenaries Novella by Lexi Blake
Amy Slaten has devoted her life to Slaten Industries. After ousting her corrupt father and taking over the CEO role, she thought she could relax and enjoy taking her company to the next level. But an old business rivalry rears its ugly head. When Flynn Adler realizes the woman he’s falling for is none other than the CEO of the firm he needs to take down, he has to make a choice. Does he take care of the woman he’s falling in love with or the business he’s worked a lifetime to build?

Z: A Demonica Novella by Larissa Ione
Zhubaal has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her. But as time passes, he’s losing hope… As an emim, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…

FALLING UNDER YOU: A Fixed Trilogy Novella by Laurelin Paige
Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway. But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom. Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.

CRAVING HIS COMMAND: A Doms of Genesis Novella by Jenna Jacob
Mercy O’Connor—known as Symoné at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender. The only problem is, she’s set her sights on sexy, commanding Sir Justice, who studies her with his dissecting, arousing stare…but never offers to show her his ropes. If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, Symoné would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight.

AMERICAN QUEEN by Sierra Simone
It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.

I was totally excited when I saw that this bundle was being released, first because it was from the 1001 Dark Nights franchise. I can’t begin to tell you how many of their novellas I have purchased over the years since the concept was introduced. So many of my favorite authors have written stories for them…Cherise Sinclair, Lexi Blake, Jenna Jacob, Lara Adrian, Shayla Black, and a whole bunch more.

2 of my favorites are in this very bundle, so I had to have this! Lexi Blake’s Masters and Mercenaries novella, Devoted and Jenna Jacob’s Doms of Genesis novella, Craving His Command.

Rough Rhythm by Tessa Bailey was a 3 star read for me. While I liked James, I had some issues with the heroine and her constant negative behavior. Maybe it’s because I’m a brat? But it was a bit much.

Z a Demonica Novella by Larissa Ione was a definite 5 star and was just as dark and juicy as the rest of her Demonica series!

Falling Under You by Laurelin Paige. The oh so hot and dominant younger assistant meets the older boss woman who craves submission in the bedroom? Right up my alley and gets 4.5 stars!

American Queen by Sierra Simone is a new author for me, but a president, his bestie and a woman they woo? Hot menage! This was a solid 4 stars!

This brings us to Lexi’s Devoted. LOVED IT! Take 2 company owners, both up against each other. But one is a dom who is determined to find out if his trainee sub, Amy Slaten, is playing him for her company’s sake, or is she really the sassy subbie she appears to be. But Amy has no clue that the dom she’s been falling for is really the CEO of the company set to take her over. So what really happens? So much hotness!

Last, but certainly not least comes Craving His Command, a Doms of Genesis novella and one of my favorites in the series. It is one of the few that are written in third person. (sorry Jenna <g>) I’m not a huge fan of first person, so though I LOVE this series, this one is a huge favorite of mine. Plus, I love Sir Justice and anything that has Kerr getting a hurt on gives me a happy feeling.

Overall, this is one of the best compilations that 1001 Dark Nights has put together, though I love them all!

5 Super Sexy Summer Stars!

About the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Ten Authors-

 

Tessa Bailey Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans and laptop, driving cross-country to New York City in under four days.

Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband of eight years and four-year-old daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Larissa Ione – Larissa Ione is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. An Air Force veteran, she traded in a career as a meteorologist to pursue her passion of writing. She now spends her days in pajamas with her computer, strong coffee, and supernatural worlds.

Laurelin Paige –Laurelin Paige is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestselling Author of the Fixed Trilogy. She’s a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender. She’s also a proud member of Mensa International though she doesn’t do anything with the organization except use it as material for her bio.

Jenna Jacob – USA Today bestselling and award winning author Jenna Jacob lives out her happily-ever-after in Kansas with her Alpha husband, adult children, and animal babies.

But don’t let her conventional innocence fool you. Jenna has been involved in the BDSM lifestyle for over twenty years. With experience and knowledge she delves deep into the emotional psyche of strong Dominants and sassy submissives with her Doms of Genesis series and The Doms of Her Life series (co-authored with Shayla Black and Isabella LaPearl).

Her works have been called: savagely beautiful, captivating, and emotionally riveting.

A hopeless romantic, Jenna paints a softer picture with her contemporary romance: Sky Of Dreams. A lover of life and laughter, she sets her zany sense of humor free in the romantic comedies: Sin On A Stick and Wet Dream.

No matter the genre, you’ll want a box of tissues handy, Jenna tugs hard on the heartstrings.

The Alpha lives for the hunt…

Driven by instinct, an Alpha shifter recognizes his fated mate from one scent, one touch. He’ll pursue his woman, regardless of the cost, and anyone else would be smart to get out of his way. He won’t stop until he takes possession of his prize.

Although the hunter doesn’t need convincing, his mate certainly does. The Alpha will have to prove himself as a lover and convince his woman that he plays for keeps.

Scent of Destiny by Rose Wulf

Taken Mate by Sam Crescent

Finders Keepers by Stacey Espino

The Hunt by Doris O’Connor

Alpha at Altitude by Lily Harlem

Fated to the Razorback Demon by Maia Dylan

Running Home by Michelle Graham

Alpha’s Sunshine by Elyzabeth M. VaLey

Checkmate by Wren Michaels

Frozen Heart by Beth D. Carter

Wolf Hunter by Elena Kincaid

Returning to the Coyote by Roberta Winchester

cropped-reviewfbknotty1.jpg

Evernight Publishing has put out two anthologies with the same theme and that is being taken by an Alpha male. A shifter in most cases, (I did not read the M/M version so I can only speak for the F/M version) But in both books they managed to snag some truly incredible authors.

To say that Evernight has a plethora of talent in their stables is an understatement at best, just the talent in the 12 author anthology I read alone proves it. Some of my favorite authors were in this anthology, Doris O’Connor, Sam Crescent, Lily Harlem, Maia Dylan and Elena Kincaid. Incidentally, their stories also stood out in this amazing anthology.

I also enjoyed the rest, especially Stacey Espino andElyzabeth M. VaLey’s contributions. My absolute favorite though, would be The Hunt by Doris O’Connor. Raphael is a wolf shifter who finds his mate in a doe shifter named Aubrey. He saves her but finds out mating is not always easy, especially when a rival is involved. My runner-up story is Taken Mate by Sam Crescent about a wolf shifter who after abducting his mate, just can’t quite get the courting part right.

All in all, every story in this book is a hit and deserves 5 Stars!
