"A cute, fun holiday story with a lot of tropey goodness that is right up my alley — virgin hero, age gap, snowbound, a little daddy kink…"
~Joyfully Jay LGBT Romance Reviews

Hunter Adams is hopelessly adrift after college. He's still a virgin, can't find a real job, and has no clue what to do with his life. In desperation, he returns to his humiliating old job as an elf at the Santa's Village in his hometown's dying mall. The Santa on the job is an unexpectedly sexy lumberjack, twice Hunter's size and age. He makes Hunter feel very naughty—too bad he's grumpy and intimidating.

Years after the tragic death of his partner, Nick Spini has his beagle and long, hard days on his Christmas tree farm. That's plenty. But he can't refuse a loyal friend's plea for help and finds himself filling in as Santa at the local mall. Despite Nick's attempt to stay aloof, the beautiful, anxious young man playing elf brings out his long-dormant daddy instincts.

When a surprise blizzard traps them alone in Nick's isolated forest home, their attraction burns even brighter. Will they surrender to the sizzling connection between them and find the release and comfort they crave?

Santa Daddy is a holiday gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring an age gap, steamy m/m first times, daddy role-playing and light spanking, Christmas romance feels, and of course a happy ending.

Challenging Mountains (settlers Book 3)
5 stars "A Journey through History" Rosemary Morris Some of the characters in Mystic Mountains and Distant Mountains feature or are mentioned in Challenging Mountains the third novel in the Settlers series set in 1840 in the colony of New South Wales. The colony is expanding now that convicts are no longer transported to the East Coast, and free squatters settle on lands between Sydney and Port Philip in the south. Tim is bored by his position in a government office. Jo, whose parents were killed at the gold mines by bush rangers, is equally bored with her life. She is determined to join them and insists she can cope with the month-long-journey, says she has enough money for her needs and that Billy, who promised her father to look after her, will be an asset. In search of adventure and a new life in Port Philip, a new settlement, they set out. Jo thinks she can take care of herself. She ignores Tim's advice about avoiding predatory males. "Despite Jo's, at times, stubborn ways, she is a beautiful, talented woman." The author introduced me to the history of New South Wales, which I knew little about. She also took me on an interesting journey from place to place, during which the characters encountered ‘the good, the bad and the ugly'. After naive Jo, dressed as a young man, is assaulted, they are deserted by their wagon master and his team. From then on, they encounter almost naked natives, are attacked by bushrangers, make dangerous river crossings and are horrified by a murder. Halfway to Port Philip, they no longer think of their expedition across challenging mountains as an adventure. When I reached the end of Challenging Mountains, I was completely satisfied and, with regret, parted with Tim and Jo.
Bodice-ripper Becomes Breeches-ripper!
Will a virgin captive surrender to this pirate's sinful touch? "[L]oads of very hot dirty sex in which Nathaniel is a very willing participant.... Just as their relationship is developing, the action kicks in with battles at sea, treachery, daring rescues, heroic actions, and suffice it to say that your swash will be thoroughly buckled, and your timbers definitely shivered!" ~ Gay Book Reviews Nathaniel Bainbridge is used to hiding, whether it's concealing his struggles with reading or his forbidden desire for men. Under the thumb of his controlling father, the governor of Primrose Isle, he's sailing to the fledging colony, where he'll surrender to a respectable marriage for his family's financial gain. Then pirates strike and he's kidnapped for ransom by the Sea Hawk, a legendary villain of the New World. Bitter and jaded, Hawk harbors futile dreams of leaving the sea for a quiet life, but men like him don't deserve peace. He has a score to settle with Nathaniel's father—the very man whose treachery forced him into piracy—and he's sure Nathaniel is just as contemptible. Yet as days pass in close quarters, Nathaniel's feisty spirit and alluring innocence beguile and bewitch. Although Hawk knows he must keep his distance, the desire to teach Nathaniel the pleasure men can share grows uncontrollable. It's not as though Hawk would ever feel anything for him besides lust… Nathaniel realizes the fearsome Sea Hawk's reputation is largely invented, and he sees the lonely man beneath the myth, willingly surrendering to his captor body and soul. As a pirate's prisoner, he is finally free to be his true self. The crew has been promised the ransom Nathaniel will bring, yet as danger mounts and the time nears to give him up, Hawk's biggest battle could be with his own heart.

Guts & Glory: Hunter (in The Shadows Security, Bk 3)
When a simple assignment becomes a whole lot more... For Hunter, what should be an easy job of finding another veteran's long-lost brother has turned up nothing but dead ends. Even worse, it uncovered problems his team thought had long since been buried. Down to his last lead, he tracks down a woman who has his protective instincts kicking in for reasons he can't fully understand. While her expressive dark eyes and generous curves catch his attention, it's her fiery temper that holds it. Back in her hometown, hiding from a man who almost destroyed her life, Frankie's thrown off guard when a bossy bearded stranger shows up looking for information on the biker she'd rather forget. And he's not taking no for an answer. With more to protect than herself now, she knows firsthand what can happen when you place your trust in the wrong person, but something about the former Green Beret has her not only letting him into her home but also her heart. Hunter's determined to complete his mission and keep Frankie safe—no matter the cost. Though he didn't expect that cost to also involve his heart. Note: Hunter is the third book of the Guts & Glory series, a six-book spin-off from my Dirty Angels MC series. While it's recommended to read both series in order, each book can be read as a stand-alone. As with all my books, this has an HEA, no cliffhanger or cheating.

Powerful Destiny
5 stars "Powerful - an excellent word to describe this story." S. Peters-Davis Rolf, a valiant Norseman, warrior, and leader of his people, in one lifetime, and a recluse and artist in another lifetime. Brigid, a Celt, beautiful daughter of the leader, and captured prisoner, in one lifetime, and an outgoing, ready-for-life-to-happen woman in another lifetime.
