Elena Hicks is the second leading party planner in Wellington SC but is quickly moved to the number one slot when her competition goes on maternity leave and plans to move to another state. It truly sucks to be her though because that means she's now the head coordinator for the Williams Family Christmas festival, a three-day bash leading up to Christmas Eve.

With a stiff-necked, rude, old-school matriarch of the family that holds little fondness for her, friends that are constantly side-eying her fashion choices, and conflicted feelings about her past flame pro football player Dante Williams...wait, sweet baby Jesus, is that Dante's new girlfriend? Elena is in for a wild Christmas affair!

If someone had told Nikki McCoy that one day the scrawny little brother of her best friend, Kimi, would evolve into a sexy, brooding, Viking of a man, she would've laughed. Come the week of Christmas, after she scheduled a last-minute vacation that gets canceled by inclement weather, she's pleasantly surprised to find the pesky teenager she grew up with was anything but a Cub that still needed protecting.

Kane McCoy, aka Cub, agreed to rescue Nikki from the airport during one of New York’s most brutal snowstorms. Despite her having rejected him in high school, he believed he held no ill will towards her until he saw her again for the first time in almost five years and feelings rushed to the surface.

Now faced with their confusing emotions of hate and lustful heat, will Nikki succumb to the taboo feelings raging inside her? Will Kane forgive Nikki for the torment of their past and devour her mind, body, and soul as she had done him in his late-night fantasies all those years ago?

Sometimes the Holidays cough up a tan, dark hair, and masculine surprises.

 

Two years ago, Shantel won the local annual baking contest, which resulted in an instant enemy when Javier James failed to accept it because he suspected Shantel of being a cheat. The cash prize is doubled this Christmas, and the local newspaper can’t wait to announce the winner in the next print. However, Javier isn’t set on entering the contest for personal reasons this year. As Christmas and the annual baking contest comes near, one faithful night lands Shantel steamy and hot for Javier at her front door; the wild fling instantly turns into love which gives Shantel hope, but when a nasty secret is revealed, Javier James may be right about Shantel, and he’s not sure if he can continue what they share.

 

With secrets on the surface, and Javier James entering the contest last minute, Shantel isn’t sure if she gets to keep her Christmas gift, and maybe some things are too good to be real, and Javier James is better off being her enemy.

An S.O.B.! Yeah, I said it because it’s true. That’s the only way to describe my boss, Antonio Luciani. Oh, he’ll fool you with his chiseled chin, perfectly placed hair, his millionaire wardrobe, and smooth-as-aged wine ways. But you see…I know the jackass. He’s been making my life as his assistant a living hell from the day I took the job. Long hours, barely any lunch, dealing with what seems to be his monthly man period…and sending out his expensive, but in poor taste, ‘Thank You for the sex’ gifts once he’s ready to move on.

My saving grace was the fact that I’ll be free of seeing his devilish mug for FOUR WHOLE GLORISH DAYS during Christmas break. It’s what’s been keeping me alive…and now…well... I should have known his punk ass would find a way to ruin the holidays.

“It’s just a last minute business flight. You’ll be back in time to join the, "Ho, ho, ho", choirs,” he said.

Look! Just look at this shit! A million miles from home, stranded in Italy due to the flights canceled because of the Coronavirus, and not staying in a 5 diamond hotel, but a goddamn old Tuscan cottage.
Oh, turn the other cheek my ass. Antonio’s on my clock…and payback is going to be sweet!
