Welcome to the Mistletoe Hop, today through Monday. Thirty fabulous authors have banded together to bring you prizes and entice you with excerpts.badge Mistletoe Hop 2014Sensible Evie, devilish Adam and a Christmas package mix-up in a hilarious holiday romp!

a gift for adam Have you ever grabbed the wrong package from your pile of carefully wrapped presents on your way to a holiday party? We haven’t either, but we were inspired to write this story after a shopping trip to Victoria’s Secret, where we found some great thongs with funny sayings. It didn’t take us long to go from “what if” to our story line, complete with a thong for every day of the week…

We’re thrilled to have this fun erotic novella re-released with new edits at Extasy Books just in time for the holidays!

BLURB

Home and Garden assistant manager Evie Strand has painstakingly embroidered a set of seven thongs as a gag gift for her best friend—only she brought the wrong box to the store Christmas party, and now Adam Grant from Automotive is holding them up for everyone to see: Kiss my…, Tight Fit—could things get any worse? Adam may seem like a total rake, but he can tell Evie’s deeply embarrassed and he resolves to make it up to her. Who knew where a simple dinner date would lead?

EXCERPT

Adam held up the pink Tuesday thong. He could hardly read it aloud for breaking up with laughter. Tuesday: Wish you were…A question mark below the lettering left little room for confusion about the intent—it would nestle comfortably over the wearer’s mound.

More hoots and hollers followed. The powder-blue Monday thong had been more shocking, probably because it was the first one Adam had held up, or maybe because it said Don’t Dribble across the front.

Evie pushed her chair back from the long banquet table where she sat with her fellow Grafton Department Store employees. Leslie grabbed her wrist. “Don’t let him get the best of you. Mistakes happen. At least half the people here think you did this on purpose to get the rake’s goat. If you leave, they’ll know you screwed up.”

Evie gulped and nodded at her department manager. She drew in a deep breath. “All right.”

She glanced back at Adam in time to see him holding up the yellow Wednesday thong: Kiss My…with a broken arrow pointing suggestively toward the backside.

Sensible Evie, devilish Adam and a Christmas package mix-up in a hilarious holiday romp!

As soon as Evie had told Adam she wasn’t inviting him in, he’d slid across the seat until his hip settled against hers. His male scent teased her nostrils. He held her hand, waiting for her answer. The soft, dim light from the dashboard cast them in dreamy green and red colors.

“I doubt a kiss will make me jump out of my skin,” she said lightly.

“We’ll see about that,” he countered, slanting his lips across hers.

She breathed through her nose as he seemed to swallow the air from her lungs. A moan escaped her lips. It wasn’t a harsh, demanding kiss—not at all like what she’d expected. It was a soft kiss. A gentle kiss. A coaxing kiss that made her want to respond in kind, and she did.

EXCERPT

The Best Man“Kneel in the cushion chair,” Kitty ordered, “facing away from me.”

Jared nodded, draped his arms over the back of the chair and peeked behind him. She was smiling.

“Raise your ass more. That’s right.”

“Put your wrists together,” she said, stepping around the chair. Only then did he see that she carried a leather strap, which she quickly secured around his wrists.

“That should hold you,” she muttered before kissing his head. “I wouldn’t want you trying to turn the tables on me midcourse. Are you comfortable enough?”

“Yeah, get on with it.”

“Oh, I give the orders. Don’t go anywhere—I’ll be right back.”

BLURB

Enter Jared Jacobs, wealthy rancher and race horse owner, who views his sex life as a series of splendid love affairs and sets out to make Kitty next on the list.

REVIEWS

The Romance Reviews: Top Pick Boundaries are pushed and it’s a race to see who wins. But falling in love lets everyone win, as Kitty and Jared find out. Everything about Kitty and Jared was amazing. Laurie P.

Amazon Readers: Kitty and Jared are my new favorite characters. I love this book. It kept me on edge because Kitty was so unpredictable, which gave this story its twist and turns. Cheryl B.   The writing is excellent, and there’s more to the wounded heroine than the facade she presents. Nicely done, Adriana. M. Varhalmi

Goodreads Readers: I loved Kitty and Jared.  Both are strong willed characters who will not run from their attraction. The Best Man is excellent. Sheila G. This is my first experience with these authors (co-written) and I loved it! Kitty has no clue what is going to happen when she meets Jared at her daughter’s wedding. Jared sees a vision in yellow and knows that he’s got to conquer. And conquer he does, in all the right ways. Kathryn.
