The Smutketeers Present: A Kinky Christmas Carol! 

 The Knight Family is a wealthy, powerful Chicago clan that knows everything there is to know about making money—but they have plenty to learn about love. In this three series novella—Eden Bradley’s Getting Scrooged, Robin L Rotham’s Not So Tiny Tim and R.G. Alexander’s Marley in Chains—you’ll meet Holly Knight, her nephew Tim, and her cousin Marley Knight-Williams as they face their ghosts, fulfill their fantasies and finally discover the magic of Christmas.

Blinded to the present…

Holly Knight doesn’t have time for Christmas. As the head of Knight Enterprises in Chicago, she doesn’t have time for anything, not even a personal life—other than her brief, secret liaisons with men who remain strangers. Until a new stranger comes to town…

Ebenezer Hall is a ‘closer’. His job: negotiate a merger with a woman who is as notorious for being a hard-ass as he is for being a charmer no one can resist—and he’s not above mixing business with pleasure as long as it’ll get him what he wants.

The chemistry is sizzling hot, and things get even hotter when Ben’s friends and long-time lovers Justin and Kit arrive in Chicago. Three gorgeous men are even more exciting than one, and Holly’s body is sated in ways she’s never even dreamed of. But she can’t allow herself to be distracted for long—her priority is always business…and protecting her heart.

Can an infamous playboy and a hard-hearted corporate mogul ever admit to their heart’s desires? Or will it take a little holiday magic for them to realize that all they want for Christmas is each other?

 

Warning: Contains all ingredients for the perfect kinky holiday: Three men demonstrating blow-job techniques—on each other—because the author couldn’t resist. Neither can Holly. Neither will you. A little sensual domination, because Ben can’t resist. Neither can Holly. Or Justin. Or Kit. Put it all together with some Christmas magic and mix—vigorously. Served hot. Best enjoyed with a side of sex toys.

This novella is the first in the linked holiday trilogy and it certainly started with a bang! As the cover suggests, this isn’t a simple one-on-one romance; this is a no holds barred sexy tale with a festive twist!

Ben Hall is in town to close a deal with the lovely Holly and he isn’t above using sex to get what he wants. When he finds her sexy bucket list, he realizes that working through it with her would allow him to have his cake and eat it!

Holly can’t believe her luck when the beautiful Ben (aka Ebenezer) starts treating her to her hearts desire (well, a little further down her body than that was writing that list to be perfectly honest…. :D) He involves her in a four-way, throws in a little Domination and a whole host of sex toys. But Holly isn’t aware that he’s found her list….will she be happy with him when she finds out?

Eden Bradley always writes sexy tales that I usually adore and this one was no exception. It was a very hot tale of sex between two very relationship wary individuals. I loved the chemistry between them both and it added a little more spice to an already panty-drenching tale. Holly was a very stubborn lady and it was a lots of fun to see her relax into her sexuality with the help of the much younger dream-boat. Ben was (of course) a Xmas hating man who was quite manipulative but gets shown the error of his ways!

Now, If only she’ll write Justin and Kit’s tale……

Running from the past…

Marley Knight-Williams has avoided the ghosts of her past for seventeen years. Now, after one thoughtless decision and too many margaritas, they’ve found her. Her memories, her heartache…and her men. Just in time for the holidays.

Boxer and gym owner Michael O’Shea is at the end of his rope. When his best friend Carlos comes home from serving his country, he’s a changed man—broken and wounded, inside and out. Michael knows there is only one person who can bring him back, one person who can make this a Christmas they will all remember. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her around.

Even if he has to break out the chains.

Time has changed them all, but it’s only banked the embers of their passion, and when the flames flare to life, they burn hotter than ever. Will the heat be enough to sear away the obstacles that stand between them? Or will it drive them apart before they can finish what they started all those years ago?

Warning: These characters shocked the author…Just sayin’…Menage and explicit sex. Schoolboy fantasies given a kinky adult twist. Voyeurism and exhibitionism. Spin the bottle, spanking, dirty sexting, and chains. Pervertable use of a poor innocent cane. Romance and magic and holiday love. With special guest appearances by Bob, Other Bob and Better Bob.

Marley was a female lead I really enjoyed reading about. She had run from the boys when she got caught in a tryst with the two of them and thought it would shame her family. When Michael turns up on her doorstep, she doesn’t quite know what to do. When he calls in his “chips” for her to spend the remaining time until the holidays between the two of them, she jumps at the chance. What results is some dirty, dirty action. Seriously, there is sexting, sexual simulation with inanimate objects, threesomes, MM contact, some BDSM and more….this is my favourite of all three of the novella’s as it was palpation-inducing-hot!

The boys were yummy… I felt so much sympathy for the war-broken Carlos and the best-friend who was simply watching him waste away. Also, mental visual I got when we see Michael covered in chains? Oh. My. God. The three of them together was simply delicious to read about and I wanted a HEA for them all.

This one was sexy, smutty and angsty…..a combination of all my favourite erotica aspects 🙂

Avoiding the future…

 

Video game mogul, philanthropist and heir to the Knight empire, Tim Crichton has three F-zones—the friend zone, the family zone, and the, er… fun-buddy zone. No crossover is allowed because it might create a fourth—the forever zone—and Tim knows forever just isn’t in the cards for him.

 

Miranda Girard has always known she and Tim were meant to be together, but when she got tired of waiting and made a move, he rejected her. Now it’s time for their Christmas reunion dinner and she’s damn well going to put on a happy face and attend—after she stops at the bar for a little liquid courage.

Peter Vaughn can’t wait for his new house to be finished so he can move out of Tim’s apartment—living with a man he wants and can’t have gets old quick. But work on the house has ground to a halt and he’s stuck there until after the new year.

 

It all seems hopeless until a jolly old doorman nudges Peter and Miranda together, and a little Christmas magic quickly escalates to a scorching holiday encounter that will either rescue Tim from a lonely future…or cost him the two most important people in his life.

First off, I must address the title. Genius!! Anyway, this book is by an author I haven’t read a lot by but this one certainly makes me want to start to read more! The writing was fluid and the characters had just the right amount of flaws to keep me reading more….I loved it!

Tim is, to be honest, a little bit of a douche. He knows how both his best friends feel about it, even feels the same back, but in his fear of wrecking their friendship, he sticks them firmly in the “friends to never sleep with category”. The twist makes this decision make a little more sense, but it still was quite frustrating.

When Peter and Miranda hook up (yes, it starts because they want to make him jealous and then gets a little out of hand), he is so jealous that he puts all his long held beliefs and joins them for one evening of fantasy sex. He watches as Peter tops the innocent Miranda and then allows him to force him to submit to. It was so HOT! Of, course this all convinces the lovely Peter that they all belong together (He was very yummy….ice-skating date anyone??)

The only thing that bothered me about this tale was Miranda. There was something that bugged me and I think it was that her actions didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. Nevertheless, the scenes with them all together were incredibly hot and made the whole tale worth reading!

This holiday series is worth the read at anytime of year. I think it could become one that gets reread time and time again. I loved that each tale was a menage, loved that in each tale not much was taboo and that everyone in the books was equally into their sexual trysts. A winning series for me!!
