Originally Reviewed For: Tea and Book

Holiday Gem is book Three in Paloma Beck's Seven Sin Sisters Series (say that ten times fast). And yes I started here, what can I say it happens. Having started in the middle I can say that while it can be read as a stand alone I don't suggest it. This books jumps right in with the assumption that the reader knows what is going on. Because of this it takes a bit to really get into the story. Which US mist definitely a negative as this is a short novella.

I received a copy of Holiday Gem from Netgalley in exchange for my review.

On his way back from a mission, Seamus is to pick up Gemma, one of the Seven Sinster sisters. When the mission goes wrong, and Seamus' best friend goes missing, he doesn't expect any other change to come along, and certainly not the change brought about by Gemma. Each of Gemma's seven sisters has a soul sin, and Gemma's is greed, which manifested itself in a gre

Ms. Beck serves up a tasty holiday morsel with the third in her Sin Sisters series. Slightly shorter but no less delightful, this Christmastime story embodies the spirit of giving without being so Christmassy that it can only be read in December! Standing on solid ground with this very enjoyable paranormal romance (super charged with erotic elements), Holiday Gem delivers the greedy little romance between scholarly Gemma and brawny Seamus.

This addition to the series was Fantastic! Not only did we have the romance of the paranormal mates, but we had the added suspense of the missing "brother"! I loved Gemma and Seamus together. They were another perfect match. Gemma's Soul sin was Greed, I was very curious how that was going to come about and I loved the direction Paloma took it.

This series so far is an absolute must read. They are short, hot and very well written. I am sure this is going to be a series I will enjoy again and aga

Thanks netgalley for a free read in exchange for a review. Although this book was a story along the lines of what I like I felt this book was rushed. It was the third in this series and I don't think I had read any of the others so it kind of rushed right at me. There was more erotica then plot, which turned me off a four and five star rating. Thanks for a chance to review this book, overall rating is three stars.
I received this from netgalley in exchange for an honest review. It was probably my favorite so far in the series. I liked how the Gemma was able to get rid of her anxiety. I hope the next one is as good.

Seamus and Gemma were a great couple. In this third book of the series we learn a little more about the secret government organization the Valendites are a part of. Nicely written action and a really great romance. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I read this short novella and thought I could get into it even though it was book three of the Seven Sin Sisters. I had not read the previous two books. Unfortunately for me it was very difficult. I believe I did not enjoy it because I had not read the others. I would not say this is a "also a stand alone" novella because it is not.

* Author's Review *

The next installment of Seven Sin Sisters takes place in Italy a few months after Eternal Envy ends. A new character is introduced, returning characters make appearances and another Valendite Breed finds his mate.

This book seemed to use a bunch of the exact same sayings as the other books. While I understood that certain things were a trait using the same wording made the book seem less exciting as the other ones.
