In the spirit of giving and paying if forward, all of the author’s proceeds for Kissing Kris Kringle will be donated to The Animal Welfare League, an amazing organization dedicated to saving animals lives and working to improve the way they are treated and regarded by society.
Kris Kringle is just an average guy living in the tiny town of North Pole, Maine where Christmas isn’t just a holiday—it’s a way of life. But not for Kris. He might be named after the big guy in red, but Kris is more Scrooge than Santa.

Until he wakes up from a night of partying with his friends to find himself in possession of a Santa suit, a toy bag and a puppy. Kris soon discovers that he’s been relegated to Santa’s naughty list and there’s only one way to get his name removed….put on the suit and spread some cheer.

Lucky for Kris every cloud has a silver snowflake and his quest to get off that list lands him in the arms of the woman he’s been lusting after for years.

It takes a little magic, but Kris is about to get everything he didn’t even know he wanted for Christmas.

Erin Quinn is an award winning author who writes haunting romance for the thinking reader.  Her books have been called “riveting,” “brilliantly plotted” and “beautifully written” and have won, placed or showed in in number awards.  Look for THE THREE FATES OF RYAN LOVE, coming in January from Pocket Books.  Go to www.erinquinnbooks.com for more information.

This was a great wee novella. The whole book is just one big Christmas theme – the town is called North Pole, Maine and the characters are a whole host of festive names. I loved it!

This book is a quick romance between Kris and Holly – both of whom have had liked each other from afar since childhood. It’s a book that will have you wishing Christmas miracles come true.

‘Tis the season for Christmas miracles…

Having landed himself on Santa’s Naughty List, Nick Santos is given a chance at redemption. Granted, he’s tasked with some daunting challenges—pimping Santa’s ride and fixing the town’s holiday bling in the once year-round Christmas Capital of the World, North Pole, Maine. But playing Secret Santa comes with some unexpected perks, like finally catching the eye of the woman who sparks his deepest desires, Vixen White.

Vixen has no idea what’s come over Nick this holiday season, but his good deeds around town help her to remember the magic of Christmas, long forgotten. And his sexy grin and a searing, stolen kiss under mistletoe have her wishing her dream of being Naughty St. Nick’s one and only will finally come true.

All she has to do…is believe.

 Calista Fox is a former PR professional, now writing fast-paced, steamy books to set your pulse racing–including the BURNED DEEP trilogy, coming in 2015 from St. Martin’s Press! She is an Amazon bestseller and has won Reviewer’s and Reader’s Choice Awards, as well as a Best Book Award, and competitions with publication as the prize.
 

This is the second in the secret Santa series and this was again an enjoyable romantic read. Though a little quick on the romance front I am a sucker for these short books centred around the Christmas theme.

Nick has loved Vixen from afar and finally gets his chance, it was was a little rushed and I really would love to see their romance develop a bit more but hey I still loved it.

Romancing Rudy Raindear

by Mary Leo

Category: Fantasy Romance
Sub Categories: Holidays, Secret Santas, Fantasy, Christmas, Bad Boys, Sexy
North Pole, Main is a curious town where Christmas is celebrated all year long. And this Christmas is no exception. Unfortunately, Rudy no longer believes in Christmas and has gotten on Santa’s naughty list. Rudy’s red nose proves it. That is until Jenny Bells takes on the challenge of showing him just what ‘being good’ really means.
USA Today bestselling author Mary Leo writes contemporary romance, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, and mystery. She loves to travel for research while she’s writing a book, or for that matter, even when she’s not writing a book . . . which always leads to yet another book.

This is the final in the secret Santa series and this was a fun read. Rudy Rainder gets himself on the naughty list that leads him to have a red nose when he lies. I found that element funny.

These were 3 great short Christmas stories that give you the feel good factor at this time of year.
