I’ll be honest, the main reason I picked this anthology up was to get One Cruel Wedding Night by K.A. Linde. I adore Katherine and Camden and I was desperate to get their wedding story. It was perfect and a full five stars. And the Sierra Simone one was also a full 5 stars.

A collection of hot and steamy stories with proceeds going to benefit suicide prevention. The theme of the stories is based around the song A Partridge in a Pear Tree which I love so that was an added bonus. When time permits I look forward to reading the other stories by the following authors:

This is a fabulous collection of stories and all the proceeds go to charity, and I think that is tremendous and so kind of all these authors.
Two Turtle Doves by Skye Warren took me an trip down memory lane, catching up with old friends, and looking into their lives in present day. Gabriel and Avery are pregnant with their second child, and are so full of love and happiness. I loved seeing them as parents

Little morsels of Christmas romance are the best. Especially when you're busy and you just want the best feelings right away.

This bundle includes the wonderful Two Turtle Doves by Skye Warren. How does this author manage to write a tale both cosy and majestic? She's so talented. Feelings evoked by this story are as beautiful as the words themselves.

Imagine a Christmas season decked with family love, handmade garlands and a surprise. Avery is still unsure of her worth in the midst of such fortu

I enjoyed all these novella Christmas stories. They all were all hot steamy and naughty stories.
Average rating: 3.5

☆One thing that I found to be missing from the audio version, was the intros by the author at the start of each story. Some of these are important to fully understand the story and/or how they relate to the song.

One Cruel Wedding Night, by KA Linde -narration by: Erin Mallon/SebYo. 3 stars. 1-10%, pgs 7-47. For some reason, I didn't like the writing on this one, and yet I still thought the good was story. I love an arranged mar

This anthology is a take on the 12 days of Christmas, and makes them naughty. I personally love anthologies like this one, you get to meet different authors and also read some favorites.

Goner By: Fiona Cole

Fiona Cole us and always will be one of my favorite authors. She has a way of writing… that I can’t get enough of. She can write the most steamy books and still give the most compelling plots. This story was pretty short and sweet. We get to revisit the Voyuer world… and I get to find out tha

I absolutely loved this action packed suspenseful heartwarming short novella! Curtains backstory is so heartbreaking!

~ Swan Song by Giana Darling

Im not a huge fan of shorts stories, but I think no one does them as Giana!! Besides how short it's, I was so entertained with Curtains story, that I didn't realize I finished until I saw I was into another story.

That's how captivating Giana’s stories are. If you want a short novela that is fun and fast paced, go grab it asap. The book has several short stories to keep you entertained for a while and the benefits go to a fundraiser, so keep that in mind.
This was a collection of deliciously steamy holiday short stories. Some I enjoyed more than others but there was definitely a little something for everyone. Various levels of steam and kink. Lots of sexy fun and a surprising number of heist stories but overall definitely a fun holiday read! Great on audio with a full cast of top notch narrators!

Sierra Simone is why I bought this and really she was the only story I actively enjoyed. A few others were fine, and some were very meh in my opinion. Still. Sierra gets my vote every day of the week.

Oooh, I loved these bite-sized stories! Little morsels of characters I grew to love and some I hadn’t met before and am now dying to get to know better.


SWAN SONG by Giana Darling

Curtain’s (hi)story (from her Fallen Men series). It’s action-packed and suspenseful. I totally didn’t expect that. Ooh, and it’s a hacker story to boot! I was looking for more hacker-themed love stories just recently, haha. Ms. Darling just knows how to make her readers happy! PS: We get a glimpse of Zeus too!


Kelly G (Now Accepting Book Boyfriend Applications)
This anthology is HOT AF! OMG! These are short stories that coincide with the 12 days of Christmas.... kind of. The heat level is seriously off the charts! These are about some couples that we have already met in some of the authors' other books, or a secondary character that was mentioned. But the did not fail to pull me in 100% to these stories.... even though some of the authors were totally new to me!

Swan Song by Giana Darling

I couldn't get enough of this fast-paced, suspenseful short story for The Fallen MC character, Finnegan (Curtains). I loved every crumb and morsel that G Darling gave her readers and it left me wanting more of these characters. It is the perfect short - it drew me in, kept me captivated, and I am intrigued and sitting on the edge of my seat ready for more. Can't wait for what's to come for these two! Well done once again G Darling!

One of my favorite things about anthologies is how different the stories are going to be inside the collection. I was, especially, excited about this one because I was curious how the authors were going to tie their stories into a particular day from the 12 days of Christmas.

Woah. If this isn't the perfect story to read to introduce me to KA Linde's storytelling and writing, then I don't want to know what you think is, because this WAS the perfect story to read to introduce me to KA Linde. In eight chapters alone, she showed me her talent. In eight chapters alone, she delivered the steam I love to see in an enemies-to-lovers story, the chemistry I love to feel between characters who love to hate and hate to love each othe

Twelve extremely talented and amazing authors put their own spin on the twelve days of Christmas and Twelve Naughty Days is here. It was a dazzling combination of festive mood, holiday cheers, dirty times and sweet emotions. A not to be missed anthology for sure.

I absolutely loved this anthology. These authors did a great job putting a twist on the 12 Days of Christmas. What a great read this anthology turned out to be. The 12 authors came together to give us readers a different and very special take on the 12 Days of Christmas. Some of the stories were more holiday-ish than others, but more than anything the stories were quick, fun, and did I mention steamy.
