Short vignette linked with 2 other vignettes to show a Christmas scene with our favorite Halle Puma couples.


Our Puma men are up to no good when they decide to decorate for Christmas without telling the lades. 8 Page Vignette

My Thoughts:

Loved this like peek into the world of Max and Emma sharing a moment at Christmas time to express love...not much to say about this other than it is worth the few minutes it takes to read it.

*note: I do not give short stories a 5 star read as I belie
A very cute little chapter that just adds more info about the characters in the series, and as I've come to expect from Bell, great laughs and hot sex!

A quick 10 page FREE read on Dana Marie Bell's website.

A cute chapter into Max and Emma our favorite Halle Puma couple. I enjoyed how the guys were worried about the girls reactions to what they were doing and the girls initial reactions especially Emma; "wondering if Lion-O’s dead body would fit in the snow globe" and how they all worked things out. We also get a little HOT sex scene.

This was an adorable and smutty quick read. It's set during the holiday season and gives a little peek at how Max and Emma spend their holiday. What starts as a plan to decorate in the most gaudy way possible (complete with everything they can find at the store) turns into a very sweet surprise.

I love it when authors do this... give us a little peek into the lives of our favorite characters. This story was cute but short.

Very nice and "warming" continuation of Max and Emma's relationship into the Christmas Season!

A somewhat horrifying (in a hilarious way), yet sweet Christmas visit to Max and Emma.
