…And we ask why there is Global Warming? Meet Tanner, most probably the number one reason for it, especially when he butts heads with Trista, the boss’s defiant daughter. Alison Foster fires up the pages with strong characters, tons of attitude and off the charts heat with Take Me Home.

See Tanner through Trista’s eyes, red their story and you decide, are they doomed to be on opposing sides? Tanner is brash, self-assured and not afraid to dole out some shock factor. What he didn’t count on was h

This is the Ella that I fell in love with when I first stumbled upon The Art of Submission, 
her writing has grown so much over this amount of time, and I have loved being able to witness this. 
A Cub for Christmas will give courage to those who have lost faith in themselves. 
What you see as an old toy may be a brand new treasure to someone else.

Review for A Cub for Christmas by Ella Dominguez.

Sweet and steamy- this is a perfect Christmas read.

Aaron and Ari hit it off almost immediately and the chemistry between them is undeniable despite one little barrier. Ari isn't sure if this is a deal breaker for her and she has to make the choice between her head or her heart.

I found Aaron to be just the right amount of Alpha male with a softer side and a dash of chivalrous thrown in. A recipe for the perfect man that always makes me swoon.

Slow and Steady by V.J. Chambers

A quick enjoyable read. Started off with a rush grabbing you in and they sorted the problem with the baddies quickly, however I did keep waiting for something else to happen but it never did. An enjoyable sex scene and a happy ending.

Noel: a Blue Collar Christmas by J. C. Valentine

review for A Cub for Christmas by Ella Dominguez

“May I please unwrap my Christmas gift early?”...

OMG !!! it doesn't get hotter then this short intro into what is a smoldering, hot affair between Ari and Aaron.

So there she sat, a forty-three-year-old cougar, waiting for her twenty-something-year-old cub to show up and hopefully sweep her off her feet for the weekend...

Do you take a chance on a stranger on a night out or do you continue your safe life ? Do you trust your body and its response

Cub for Christmas by Ella Dominguez
A Cub for Christmas, brings joy and passion to the holiday season,heating up cold and lonely nights. Ella has captured the May-December romance in a way that makes you believe that out there somewhere your own cub maybe waiting to be found. Giving the story the touching words and attitude that all of us "cougars" need to hear, to know that we are still desirable.
Catherine Bibby (Rochelle's Reviews)
I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy to start my holiday season off with a bang. All of these stories are overflowing with heat and holiday cheer by 17 very talented authors. They will entice, enchant, and make you merry in ways that can be shared with your partner. Here are my thoughts on 7 of the stories and their amazing characters.

This review is for the contributed story - A Cub for Christmas.

I received a copy of this story for an honest review.

A Cub for Christmas is a phenomenal romantic novella that walks the fine line between sweet and spicy. I absolutely adored this read and cannot recommend it enough to other romance fans. Below are five reasons I think you should check out the story:

1. Well Developed Leads: Often when short stories fall flat for me it’s because the leads are one dimensional and the author relies too

This is a quick read but it's so worth it. If you're looking for a fun, steamy, hot romance then this book is for you. JC knows how to write a short story and keep you hooked until the end. You won't regret reading this story and it will put a smile on your face.

I haven't been able to read all 17 books in the boxed set yet, but I did read Noel: A Blue Collar Christmas by J.C. Valentine, and Bearfield Snowed In by Jacqueline Sweet. Here are my thoughts on the two.

Noel: A Blue Collar Christmas: Noel Walker has a strict policy of not dating patients. Officer Hunter Davis comes in to the ER with a gun shot wound. As soon as he lays eyes on Noel, he's determined to break her "policy". Noel regretfully refuses his advances. They meet again at a mutual friends

A Cub for Christmas by Ella Dominguez Review

This sweet little tease (author included) is the perfect precursor to Christmas. But it's more than that. The main character, Ari, is well written as a mature woman, however not too mature where I felt she should apply for AARP. Aaron, same thing, kind of. He too is written in a way where I think he should have been in a frat house, hanging upside-down while chugging from a keg.

As a cougar myself, I appreciate the way this story unfolded. It had good p

I was provided an ARC of this written work, in exchange for my honest review.

Just because a story is short doesn’t mean that it’s not well-developed. Short doesn’t mean you can’t fall in love with the characters in a short period of time. And in this case especially, short doesn’t mean that “A Cub for Christmas” wasn’t titillating and sexy, because it was every bit of that and more, and MORE is definitely what I want.

Rachel's Review on Noel by JC Valentine~

What a fun, easy to read, sweet holiday novella.

Noel Walker is a nurse. Her forte is the ER. She loves the adrenalin rush! At the ass end of an 18 hour shift she comes across hot as hell, built like a tank Hunter Davis. He's drop dead, (ahahah LOL) hot n hunky! So good lookin that Noel is momentarily speechless and staring! And he's the GSW that was brought in earlier. As she looks for his wound, he whips his hospital gown up, basically flashing his junk,

Noel is an ER Nurse and adrenaline junkie. She would rather work during the holiday period instead of nursing a glass of Merlot or two, at home on her own.

Hunter is a Cop who has been admitted for "copping" a bullet. When Noel goes to tend to him, she is mesmerised by his eyes and his physique. To her embarrassment, Hunter notices but he is not oblivious to her either. He asks her on a date but she has a "No dating patients poli

This is a review for Band Of Heather by Sarah Cradit

This is the story of how Colleen and Noah met, both of them coincidentally in Edinburgh at University and enrolled in the neuroscience program. I love how the story starts with letters from each of them to loved ones back home, neither of them very impressed with the other. 

They’re both, for different reasons, having to spend Christmas in Edinburgh and meet by chance in the university library. After an initially uncomfortable exchange they grew

Oh My Heck!! I LOVE Hunter & Noel!! When they meet, the way they meet, you would think that's it they will never see each other again.
When Officer Hunter asks ER nurse Noel out, even for a friendly drink, he's shot down. Noel doesn't have time for a relationship & she doesn't date patients. Life is funny, when you're suppose to be together, it definitely makes sure to make that

I have not read all the stories, but I read Noel: A Blue Collar Christmas. I thought it was something different, since I thought it would be only about Christmas trees and something similar. It was definitely a good surprise. Noel seems like a sweet hard working nurse and then she gets rewarded by working on a hot patient during her double shift. Mr. Davis made her feel more than she has felt in a while all by just his presence. Loved that he could definitely make her feel and change her way of ...more

I only read a few, but so far it has totally worth buying the book, I like Gillian Cherry story, My cowboy soldier. It made me cry, and pray that all the soldiers will be able to be home for Christmas or at least be with their families. In this collection there is something for everyone . So enjoy 17 Christmas stories for a awesome price.
