Greg finds a letter mysteriously appeared right next to his fireplace, originally addressed to Santa. In the envelope, there is also a photo about a man held captive in a cage and more likely abused. Greg has no idea how the letter arrived to him, but he is determined to find that man, and rescue him.

It is a sweet, sexy Christmas story with a touch of mystery. I loved Greg and Bobby together, and I’d love to read more about them.

*It is not a BDSM erotica story.

Greg solves the mystery about the letter and pic he found...

(view spoiler)

The insta-love was little bit too much for my liking but I'll pretend it's not there because the story was too short for a great build up and I liked it very much.
A short, cute Christmas story. A mysterious letter, a caged stranger, a heroic rescue and then some hot lovin'.

This free story only comes in PDF, which never converts all that well to mobi (this time was no exception). So, I converted to epub and reformatted it in Calibre so that it would not drive me crazy. All so I could read a 20 page story on my Kindle. The things I do ;)

All Romance will soon have the mobi and epub formats for this story. Yay.

Another book I read, just to pass the time. This one was a bit ridiculous. Not worth the time or money, just an excuse for a 20 page sex scene.

Another excuse for a sex scene. This one does have an interesting premise: specifically, a mysterious envelope appears in MC Greg's house one morning just before Christmas. Inside the envelope is a photo of a man bound, hooded, and locked inside a small cage. There is also a cryptic letter asking "Santa" to save this kid for Christmas.

Unfortunately, everything goes downhill from there. This could have been developed into an interesting mystery -- but, instead, (view spoiler)

Wonderful short story. Lovely read!

After seeing the prompt picture, I wasn’t sure if this story would be something for me. But it was; I really enjoyed the sweet interaction between those two lovely MC’s. Of course, the insta-love isn’t always very credible, but it didn’t bother me in this story. One of my favorites in this anthology. 5 stars!

This is a cute little story that moves very fast. Greg somehow saves Bobby from a bdsm party gone wrong, and they seem to hit it off right away. They take things a bit further while Bobby is staying with Greg.

It's hard for me to give any story less than 20 pages more than three stars, but this was very cute. I liked it.

A free short. Nice story that moved Bobby quickly from bound captive to lover.

This was a really fun little story.
This one moves to fast to really be believable ultimately, but the premise was interesting.

Greg mysteriously finds a letter in his house, left like it'd been delivered down the chimney. What's funnier, it's addressed to Santa. Inside is a picture of a man locked in a cage, in a hood, and clearly not there because he chose to be. Greg can't let it go, he has to find the boy and free him.

Bobby thought his one night at a BDSM club would be just fulfilling a dare from a co-worker. Finding himself k

Like most short stories there's just not time for a lot of character development. Thankfully this book was free or I'd have been disappointed.

Greg receives a mysterious letter & photo about a young man bound in a cage suggesting that the young man needs rescued.

Bobby is tricked by a sadistic co-worker into going to a BDSM party, where he's essentially kidnapped, bound, & caged.

Greg gets help from a police buddy, they rescue Bobby (no details on how they found him or anything). Greg takes

This was a quick, short read, but I enjoyed it very much :) It's a cute story with a bit of mystery thrown in.
Bobby was a cute little imp ad I think he and Greg were very sweet together. Greg is a cool hero :) very unherolike, so to say. He's just a normal guy who gets tangled in Bobby's problems.
I just wished the story had been longer, but I guess that's an ongoing problem ;) Readers always want more and more and more.

Il s’agit là d’une courte nouvelle sur le thème de Noël mais l’auteure l’a épicée comme un vin de Noël, le jeune homme est tout de même enchainé dans une cage…
C’est romantique et mignon et cela se laisse lire très facilement. Les personnages sont mignons et bien sympathiques.

An interesting little read. It would have been nice to know a little more about how they located Bobby as there seemed so little to go on from the clue(s) that had been left.

A free short(16 pages)story. And the end has more of a Happy For Now feel to it because of that.
