All I wanted for Christmas was a date…

I posted one personal ad on a free, dark web dating site. I expected a Nigerian Prince who wanted my bank account number or a phishing scam. I didn’t expect to receive lavish gifts from a beautiful stranger.

A plane ticket.

A weeklong vacation in Bora Bora.

Saying yes to everything was easy because in exchange for my insane compliance,

A Fun Delightful Steamy Christmas-Themed Novella!

If you want some heat to warm up your Christmas this season, look no further than this book! I found the premise intriguing and the physical relationship between Luca and Elizabeth was so hot I had to check a few times to make sure my phone literally wasn't melting in my hands. Wow! I really enjoyed this novella and it was perfect if you've only got time to read for a few hours - you'll devour this story.

The Christmas Con was the perfect read to get you ready for the holiday season! It was a quick read filled with bad decisions (so worth it though), steamy scenes (prepare too fan yourself) and witty inter thoughts (had me laughing). This was my first book from this author and I'll definitely be checking out more because I loved this read so much!

This book is going to be spicing up the atmosphere just in time for the holidays!
Enveloping the readers in the Christmas magic right from the beginning, this story is going to grant them precious gifts such as immense pleasure and infinite joy. Also, they will be, immediately and irreversibly, spellbound by this glamours and spectacular world which the author so meticulously crafted.

The Christmas Con by Rachel Robinson was a mess of a novella that had so many moving parts it felt like nothing was fully developed. Elizabeth, aka Lizzy, decides to post an add to a sketchy website on the dark web in the hopes that she'll find someone who will play the part of her boyfriend during Christmas at her family's house. She ends up meeting Luca, who in turn wants to spend a week with her in a no-strings-attached relationship. Elizabeth has no clue who Luca is, just that he's paying fo ...more

If you're looking for a book with an insane level of hotness, then The Christmas Con by Rachel Robinson is just the spicy holiday novella that you need in your life!

Lizzy and Luca's story is what makes reading so epic and captivating—it's a journey, an opportunity to walk on the wild side, a chance to escape reality and live inside someone else's world through the magnetic art of storytelling.

The Christmas Con is a fast-paced, sexy read with a cute ending that nicely wraps up the insta-love st

Not at all what I expected. These two meet via the dark web and she accepts a plane ticket to Bora Bora. Ya, that sounds like she will be getting murdered, right? And then add in the fact that when she arrives a doctor wants to draw her blood and give her an exam. I would have walked away. Lizzy is CRAZY!
Anyways, these two meet, have a wonderful week vacation and then she goes home. Can they make there relationship last???
This is novella length and only have Christmas as a backdrop.

Ready for a sizzling hot Italian, a desperate sweetheart and a little white Christmas Con??

Christmas Con is a steamy little novella!

Lizzy is swept up in a dark web hook up, to make her pathetic love life look a little more satisfactory.
When arriving in Bora Bora and meeting the mysterious Luca, Lizzy and Luca have an intense week of vacation fun, which ends in an insta-love situation which I’m totally not even mad about.
