This the season…anyone else in the mood for a little Naughty and Nice? Check out the new holiday collection by Lauren Dane, Megan Hart, Jaci Burton and Shannon Stacey. Sounds like exactly what I needed over the past few days.
A famous singer reunites with an old flame. A couple explores their desire to be truly bound together. Newlyweds heat things up when they’re trapped indoors. And sparks fly when the lights go out. Whether you are naughty or nice, you can still get what you really want for Christmas in this collection of four seasonal shorts.
Dark Faerie Tales and Tynga’s Reviews have gotten together to bring everyone a Dark Winter Tale and it’s already well underway. The first three parts of this tale can be seen here: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. To see who all will be appearing during the event, a Master List has been posted. For each section of the story that is posted, there will also be a giveaway, so make sure you keep an eye on this series.
