Baby it’s Cold Outside
A man receives the gift of pleasure at the hands of two expert lovers. Boyhood sweethearts get a second chance at romance. Two very proper gentlemen indulge their forbidden desires. And a Christmas tree farmer has an epiphany. It may be cold outside but these four holiday novellas will warm you up.
Stories also available for purchase separately.
With historical, supernatural ménage, western, and witty contemporary novellas to choose from, the Men Under the Mistletoe anthology offers a diverse collection of male/male holiday themed romances from four gifted authors. Reuniting lovers is the underlying theme of these heartwarming and very sexy stories.
Ava March’s My True Love Gave to Me is a gut wrenching second chance at love historical romance. Afraid of his feelings and what society and his family will think of their unconventional relationship, Thomas Bennett abandons Alexander Norton for four years.
My True Love Gave to Me is filled with anguish, love and lust as Thomas proves he is willing to do whatever it takes to win Alexander’s forgiveness. A wonderful story that takes the protagonists (and readers) through a wide range of emotions and some very steamy sex scenes!
White Knights takes a supernatural twist that proves very illuminating for Gavin Lowden following his breakup with longtime boyfriend Piers. Harper Fox’s richly detailed storytelling engages the reader in this dramatic and mystical novella. Gavin is a flawed yet sympathetic protagonist whose unexpected encounter with two rescue workers provides him new insight into his relationship with Piers. Exceptional character development, a unique storyline and a remarkable epilogue make White Knights a standout read.
Josh Lanyon’s Lone Star is a beautifully written story with a delightful down home feel. When Mitch Evans returns to Texas after a twelve year absence, he discovers that, sometimes, you really can go home again. Especially when you have a sexy Texas Ranger like Web Eisley waiting for you.
Mitch’s visit to his home town is a bittersweet reflection of his life past and present. It is a time of regret for words left unspoken. It is a lesson in learning from his past mistakes. Most importantly Lone Star is a sweet yet moving romance that will melt your heart as Mitch and Web find their way back to one another.
K.A. Mitchell’s The Christmas Proposition reunites Mel Halner and Bryce Campion for their mutual friends’ wedding at Mel’s Christmas tree farm. The passion between the ex-lovers burns hotter than ever but will they find a way to stay together after the wedding?
The Christmas Proposition is a humorous and sexy novella with a superb cast of characters. Mel and Bryce are well-drawn likeable protagonists. Their smokin’ hot chemistry leads to some very erotic and incendiary sex scenes. The dynamics between Mel and his family are realistic and provide additional depth to the story. The Christmas tree farm is the perfect backdrop for this charming second chance at love romance.
Men Under the Mistletoe is a marvelous anthology that is guaranteed to heat up your holiday season. Although the stories are available individually, I highly recommend the entire anthology.
