Twelve Days of Xmas: Last Day!!
by robinrotham on Dec 20th, 2014 146 Comments »

RG the Xmas Elf:

The last day is here and I’m happy and sad. Happy because we had around 100 authors who donated their time, their goodwill and enough gift cards and books to last a few readers months (honestly they really stepped up, the prizes all together are super impressive). Happy because nothing crashed, we got the video made despite the obstacles and I think we were fun hosts. Happy because I really do love elfing. The sad comes from knowing we’ll have to wait another year for next Xmas.

But The Smutketeers, like elves, are busy all year long. We have Paloozas and other gatherings in the summer time, we have book releases all year long and then we have the conferences where the Smutketeers enjoy having fun with readers in person. At RT convention in 2015 in Dallas? We’ll be together again, having our 4th annual Cover Model Karaoke party! Check out last year’s finale for our Pitch Perfect homage!


…Most of the year we spend our days at our FB group THE BRASS CHATTERY talking to our Smutkedettes, sharing “research” pics and visiting in between book releases and parties. We also have a lot of contests there *G*, but I promise, it’s a fun place to hang out.

And our readers get sneak peeks, contests and news when they join our monthly NEWSLETTER!

Then there is Xmas…We started making videos in 2012

And the tradition will definitely continue :) One last look at this year’s offering and thanks to Christine D’Abo, Joyfully Reviewed, PJ Schnyder, Samhain Publishing, Melissa Blue, Bianca Sommerland, Lexxie Couper and her personal trainer *wink*, Zoe Archer and Nico Rosso, Smutty Kitty Reviews, Mari Carr, TJ Michaels, Jennifer Leeland, Jayne Rylon and her socks, The Book Tart, Lila Dubois and her baby bump, Becky Asher from Village Books, Erin Nicholas, Dawn from ARe and Daydrmzzz Blog, Jennifer Kacey, Saranna DeWylde, Lauren Hawkeye, Seleste Delaney, Charles Paz, Lexi Blake, Jeffe Kennedy, KM Jackson, and Heather Long (also the Smutkepuppies Rouxgaroux aka Roux and Voodoo Romeo Foxtrot Sweetpea)

They joined the Smutketeers Eden Bradley, Robin L Rotham and RG Alexander in making this video GREAT

LAST BIT OF ELFY ADVICE: You have until midnight Pacific time to comment on all the days and be entered to win the 11 giant bundles of prizes and the Grand Prize offered today. The winners will be chosen tomorrow afternoon after the elves recover from their hangover. Here are the links for you to follow Day 1, Day 2 , Day 3 , Day 4, Day 5 , Day 6 , Day 7 , Day 8 , Day 9 , Day 10 , Day 11

Eden Bradley

Hey there Smutkedettes and new visitors-I can’t believe it’s almost over! I hope you’ve been enjoying our yearly 12 Days of X-mas bash as much as we have! I’ve giggled like a loon over my darling RG the X-mas Elf’s poems, laughed until I cried over this year’s video, and loved reading every single one of your comments each day! Thank you for coming!

Now onto the book stuff!

She trusts him with her body…but can he trust himself with her heart?

San Francisco Doms, Book 1

Devin Delaney has never described herself as kinky, despite a rich fantasy life filled with submission scenarios—until her best friend takes her to the Ring, a San Francisco BDSM club, and her senses hum with awakened urges.

One pro Dom in particular works scenes that leave her breathless, and when he unexpectedly invites her on a journey to the darker side of sex—right then, right there—she sinks readily into the sting of addictive desire.

Shaye’s past makes him wary of getting involved with any woman, but when Devin willingly gives herself over to him, something inside him opens up. And he finds himself breaking his own rules to keep her in his arms all night.

When Shaye takes Devin to an exclusive club named Sanctuary, leading her deeper into the BDSM world, Devin’s kinkiest fantasies—and emotions—shift into overdrive. The experience brings them both to the edge of an inner darkness that could seal their bond—or permanently tear it apart.

The island always knows what you need…

Miranda lives in paradise— the exclusive Eden resort, the ultimate in fantasy retreats.

Roan, the resort’s dungeon consultant, lives part-time on the island and full-time in the past.

When the sexy Dominant and the sultry pastry chef both receive one of the island’s mysterious invitations they spend a sizzling week together in the dungeon suite. They’re left breathless, wanting more… and hopelessly falling.

Both have been scarred by loss, both have created a nearly impenetrable shell. The intensity and intimacy of kink might be the perfect recipe to open Miranda’s heart again. But can the man who fulfills her every secret desire ever give her what she needs the most?


 photo Dangerously-Bound.jpg

She wasn’t as innocent as he remembered. He’s twice as wicked as she ever imagined.

“For those who are born to New Orleans, it’s in your blood. It lingers there no matter where you go. BDSM is the same sort of thing. If you’re born to it—the way you were, the way I was, whether or not you want to accept that—you can never shake it. It shapes the way you think, the way you respond to…everything. And those who were a part of unleashing those desires…you never forget them, either. That’s what you did for me, Mick. For me, not to me.”
~Alessandra ‘Allie’ LeClair

She can whip up something sweet…

Allie LeClair has finally returned to the sultry city of New Orleans. After ten years of studying and working as a pastry chef in San Francisco and all over Europe—and feeding her submissive side at BDSM clubs—Allie is home, and she has something to prove to the man who once fueled her desires. She’s not a child anymore.

But with two in the kitchen…

When security specialist Mick Reid hears that Allie is back in town, he knows he won’t be able to stay away for long. Ever since he discovered his darker side, Mick has tried to protect Allie from the aggressive beast within him—but that power and wildness is exactly what she wants.
Can they take the heat?

Allie has made the first move, but now it’s up to Mick. The game has begun, and playing has never been so rough.



~~Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? Yes or No? No? What about the elves…?
I have a pretty intense elf fantasy that involves Legolas, but that’s not what we’re asking, is it…? Okay—yes. I want to be turned over Santa’s knee and spanked for being on the naughty list. A hot, shirtless Santa. Who’s with me?

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…
Ooooh, rock stars, book boyfriends and hot actors, oh my! I’d take Jared Leto, Adam Levine, Lenny Kravitz, Jason Momoa, Charlie Hunnam, Kit Harrington, Shemar Moore, Johnny Depp, Tim Olyphant, Mr. Darcy, Roy Batty (not exactly a hero)…then I’d have a shower and invite Scarlett Johansson in. ; )

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

I LOVE Holiday movies! Some favorites are Love Actually, The Holiday, Elf and Bad Santa. Why is Billy Bob Thornton sexy in his Santa gear with that sneer on his face? Sometimes I wonder about myself…

~~What’s your favorite holiday read?

The classic LITTLE WOMEN. I know it’s not all holiday, all the time, but it always feels like Christmas to me. : )

~~ Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all!

It starts off sweet with some chocolate-dipped strawberries in the bottom of a champagne glass, then things get dirty! Stretched out on a fur rug in front a roaring fire, hands bound in leather cuffs as I give myself over to his every wicked desire…which I hope will include a full toy bag and a man with a creative imagination and who’s great with his hands. Hmm…maybe time to write another holiday story?

~~What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow?

I did some lingerie pics in the snow a few years ago. Not too dirty. Except for that one shot…

The roaring fire on the other hand? That was just last winter with a guy who looks exactly like Lenny Kravitz, and may have involved an evil stick (Google that one!) and his talented, lush mouth….oh, yes…

~Thank you to all our wonderful readers who have supported us and our treasured author friends all year! You are the reason. : ) Wishing you all a magical holiday season, no matter what or how you’re celebrating—it’s the celebration itself that counts!

Robin L. Rotham

Since I’m behind deadline and writing for all I’m worth, I’m just going to say Happy Holidays and thank you to my friends and faithful readers. You’ve been a wonderful inspiration to me–not to mention a great pick-me-up when I’m down. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know.

I wish you all health and happiness, kinky books and all sorts of wonderful suprises in the new year!

 photo ACarnalChristmas722.jpg***NEW BOOK*** (buy links will go up as soon as they become available)

Custom farmer Joe Remke once thought he would never be happy again. Fortunately, Ariel Jane Pender and Brent Andersen had other ideas, and now the three of them are building a farmhouse—and a future—together. Toss in the occasional orgy with Hake and Mandy Stivers, and life just doesn’t get any better.

Or so Joe tells himself when his darkest fears whisper to him at night, urging him to leave while he can still survive on his own.

But it may already be too late—Mandy and Hake are coming for the holidays, and they’ve got a lot more than visions of sugar plums and noncon role-play dancing in their heads. The gift they’re about to offer AJ could put an end to Joe…Or give him the faith he needs to stay forever.

 photo ACarnalPrelude72.jpg

***Free  Short Read Prequel***

A birthday surprise, a carnal party, a passionate conclusion…

Erotic romance writer Mandy Stivers gets the surprise of her life when her husband Hake pulls out all the stops for her birthday. Their weekend in Denver with her favorite triad promises to fulfill her most carnal fantasies. But will Mandy’s heart still be in once piece when it ends?

 photo amorousovernight72lg_zpsa28a9e77.jpg

What’s better than one hot alien at your service? Two hot aliens in your bed.
After four months of orbiting Earth in a spaceship bursting with sex-starved aliens, nurse Shelley Bonham will do just about anything to get off. The ship, that is.

Not that the aliens aren’t hot enough to put her hormones on red alert. In fact, the more time she spends with the Garathani leader Cecine and his personal guard Hastion, the more she wants them. Knowing what Cecine and Hastion are doing to each other when nobody’s looking only makes it harder to keep her hands to herself.

But she’s already been betrayed by one alien–her dead douchebag of a husband. Can she trust her future–and her children–to another?

Warning: Contains the usual Robin L. Rotham smorgasbord of m/m/f menage and D/s elements, plus a shipload of alien alphas in outer space.

Book 3 in the Aliens Overnight series


 photo frankendom.jpg

A brilliant woman, a couple of mad scientists, and an erotic experiment with shocking results…

Vascular surgeon Dr. Rachel McBride knows she’d be insane to pass up the chance to work on Julian Kilmartin’s cutting-edge research project. The reclusive neurologist has been the object of her submissive daydreams since residency, and time and distance have only strengthened the dark compulsion.

To complicate matters, a former lover who was all too aware of her attraction to Julian is also on the team. Charmingly obnoxious Dr. Colin Carter was Julian’s protégé back in the day, and nothing appears to have changed…or has it? There’s an earnestness to Colin now, an urgency she’s never before seen in him.

When she accepts the offer and travels to Eastern Europe, Rachel discovers that research is only part of her job description—and her total submission is only the beginning of the sexual excesses Julian and Colin will demand from her.



XMAS Questions
~~Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? What about the elves…? Um, I didn’t until you asked that question…

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star… Benedict Cumberbatch. I think that’s all I need to say, isn’t it?

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie? White Christmas, with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. I’ve watched it a thousand times and can’t wait to see it again.

~~Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all! The fantasy? Nestled away in a Rocky Mountain hideaway, curled up on the couch in front of a roaring fire with Benedict Cumberbatch, a hot toddy and a good book. The reality? Nestled away in rural Nebraska, curled up on the couch in front of the gas log with hot tea and a hotter book, while Mr Robin looks at porn on his computer.

~~What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow I’m not even going to tell you. But a crop might have been in my hand at the time…

R.G. Alexander

Happy Merry! This year has been crazy for me. Between being sick, having my roommate fly off to hipper, greener pastures (I miss Eden!), being a part of the Inkheart authors, the Invitation to Eden series, the Riding Desire Anthology and releasing 9 new books, including all 3 novellas in the Billionaire Bachelor Trilogy and book 2 in the Fireborne trio-Make Me Burn…Yeah, crazy and busy. I was so frazzled I almost missed Xmas, but I’m really glad I didn’t.

Thank you to all of our patient readers and friends, thank you for always being there through good times and bad. For letting me share my stories with you. It is an honor. I can’t wait to do it all again next year.

A special thanks has to go to my fellow Smutketeers who have put up with me during this year of madness. Love you and wish you were both under my tree!

Happy Holidays! Whatever you celebrate…celebrate loud. *G*

Glass slipper shopping can be a dangerous pastime…

The CEO’s Fantasy-Book 1
Dean Warren is the billionaire CEO of Warren Industries. He’s spent the last five years proving his worth and repairing his family’s reputation. But the rules he’s had to live by are starting to chafe, especially when it comes to one particular employee. He doesn’t believe in coincidence, but when Sara Charles shows up suddenly unemployed and asking him to agree to a month of indulging their most forbidden fantasies–there’s no way he can refuse.

When reality is better than his wildest dreams, will the CEO break all of his own rules to keep her?

The Cowboy’s Kink-Book 2

Tracy Reyes is a man who enjoys having control. Over his family’s billion dollar land and cattle empire, over the women he tops at the club, and over his life. When teacher Alicia Bell drops into his lap with a problem that needs solving and a body that begs to be bound, he can’t resist the opportunity to give her the education in kink she needs. But can he walk away from his passionate pupil when it’s time to meet his future bride?

The Playboy’s Ménage-Book 3

Henry Vincent and Peter Faraday have been friends forever. The royal rocker and polymath playboy have more than a few things in common. They’re both billionaires, they both love a challenge…and they’ve both carried a long-lasting torch for the woman that got away. Finding Holly again brings back feelings and memories neither one of them wanted to face. But they’ll have to if they want to share her. Keeping her from running again and making her admit how she feels about them will take teamwork. Hours of teamwork…and handcuffs.


 photo RG-Alexander-Make-Me-Burn.jpg

One wrong move and it all goes up in flames.

Fireborne, Book 2
Aziza Jane Stewart is the last of the Fireborne, and so far it’s been nothing but a curse, destroying her family and putting everyone she loves in danger. Now she’s on a quest to find her brother’s portion of the power that flows in her veins and track down the murdering Jiniyr who are a threat to her loved ones.

She and her Enforcer lover Brandon are officially “in a relationship”, but she’s still torn between two men who both set her on fire. Brandon’s duties are driving a wedge between them, and her need to protect her Jinn guardian isn’t helping. Exiled and stripped of his powers, Ram is focused on satisfying his darkest urges…and tempting her to come along for the ride.

When Aziza discovers Brandon has been keeping news of ritualistic murders from her and the evidence is pointing at Ram, all bets are off. It’s time to find her own answers, embrace what’s inside her and make her own rules, damn the consequences.

Warning: Explicit content, and even more danger and heavy drinking than book one. Fetish clubs and role-play, whips and chains, voyeurism and exhibitionism. More inappropriate use of supernatural powers for deviant activities. In other words, burning down the house.


 photo 21939067.jpg

Mr. Big Stuff…who do you think you are?

Caroline Aaron has kissed a lot of frogs. The last thing she needs is some cowboy-turned-reality star promising to come after her with his dangerous dimples and wicked smile. Especially not when the cowboy is eleven years younger, the brother of her best friend and doesn’t meet any of the requirements on her List. Still, when he doesn’t show up after she’s waited three months to knock him down, it puts a dent in her pride.

Book 2 in the Bigger in Texas series (Big Bad John, Mr. Big Stuff, Big Trouble)


XMAS Questions
~~Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? What about the elves…? I dress up like an elf every year, my husband has a beard and likes it when I sit on his lap and tell him what I want…enough said :)

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star… Joe Manganiello, Jason Momoa, Jon Snow (who knows nothing), the 10th and 11th Doctor Who at the same time (they’ve done it before), and Dean and Castiel from Supernatural. This is a big cabin right? Will there be pie? *G*

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie? Classics: White Christmas, It’s a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, The Bishop’s Wife (with Cary Grant), all those animated oldies.
Modern: Love, Actually, While You Were Sleeping, The Santa Clause, Elf, and I love the dancing scene in Fred Claus.
Yeah. I really love Christmas.

~~What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow If I told you, Cookie might be upset. Just know…stuff happened…and it was good. ;)

Twelve Days of Xmas: Day Eleven!
by robinrotham on Dec 19th, 2014 154 Comments »

RG the Xmas Elf: This has gone by so fast! Tomorrow is the VERY LAST DAY! Weren’t we just playing Dirty Boggle and the Smutketeers Word search? Wasn’t I just slaving away to create our parody video? The Xmas Elf was really hoping it would go viral, since dancing authors are even cuter than kittens…so share it if you haven’t yet *G*

Is time just speeding by because I’m so very old? (that’s possible, elves live a very long time)
Day 11 is full of goodness, which should ease the pain. And tomorrow? Well just blink and it will be here.


If you want to be entered to win the 11 bundled prizes and the Grand Prize of $300 worth of gift cards from Amazon, Best Buy and Target, then you should make sure you’ve left a comment on all 12 days! 1 , 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 10

Sending you warm holiday wishes (or hot ones, if you’re reading REVENANT!) I also want to thank all of my readers for an AMAZING year of releases…you have been so encouraging and generous and I am so lucky to have you! Raising my mug of hot buttered rum to you. Cheers, and happy holidays from the Ione household!

A very happy holiday season to one and all. If you’re a Christian (noel!), I wish you glad tidings, with plenty of hot shepherds and angels poking around your manger. If you’re Jewish (gut yontiff!) may you be blessed with enough extra oil to keep things slippery and lit even longer. If you celebrate Kwanzaa (Habari Gani?), may your Mkeka overflow with potent beauty. If you’re a capitalist consumer (Prosper!), I hope Santa stuffs your stocking and slips up and down your chimney with rampant Daddy Bear sugarplums. If you’re a Pagan (Blessed Yule!), I pray that Sol Invictus drops in and out of your Underworld’s backdoor with extra dazzle.

A glorious new year to all. Dream hard!
~~What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow?
When I was in my early 20s, I attended a huge, schmancy Christmas getaway in Sun Valley, ID hosted by a group of local A-gays. The last night was a Xmas Eve dinner on the side of a mountain inside a deerskin yurt. (yes, really). Anyways, an intensely sexy lumberjack type (e.g. 6’5” 250lbs, beard, giant hands, softball bulge… the whole nine) who had been pursuing me on the ski slopes for several days made his play over venison and mulled wine then dragged me outside into 3 feet of powder, to blow me twice, once under a tree in the middle of the Silent Night, then again quietly under a blanket in a horse-drawn sleigh under a sky pocked with stars before he tried to convince me to move to Idaho. So yeah: jolly crowd of guys on the other side of a leather partition while I had public musclebear sex in snow up to our knees and then had a rematch smeared with drying spunk listening to actual jingling harness bells. Doff we now our gay apparel…

~~What’s your favorite holiday read?

I can’t take too much insistent holiday cheer, but I really love Heidi Cullinan’s Let It Snow and Sleigh Ride and also Tere Michaels Holiday Roommates. They both write the hell out of everything they hit, but they also know how to deliver the seasonal sauce without making me Scrooge out. Dreamspinner does a naughty/nice advent calendar each December and there are always a couple stunners in there as well.

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

I have two:
§ Home for the Holidays, a stunning romantic dramedy directed by Jodie Foster starring Holly Hunter and Anne Bancroft which is required viewing for my family every year.
§ Scrooged… Bill Murray is a mad, sick genius and somehow the movie manages to serve up a perfect balance of ruthless comedy and mind-bending schmaltz with a stellar cast.

Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? Yes or No? No? What about the elves…?
Not so much Santa as the elves but only in the way my favorite erotic authors would write them.

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…
Ian Somerhalder….These days its all about Ian Somerhalder.

Happy Holidays from Michelle M. Pillow & Mandy M. Roth!

Q: If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you?

A: Mandy M. Roth(who is refusing to pass this question to Michelle M. Pillow): I think we should pick hot Italian guys. After some thought, I realized Michelle will pick the pizza delivery guy mainly because she’s a big fan of food so I’m going to pretend she too voted for hot Italian men. Trust me, in the end, she’ll thank me.

Michelle M. Pillow: But they’ll still have the pizza, right?

Mandy M. Roth: Sigh. Yes. They’ll still have pizza.

Q: Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

A: Mandy M. Roth: White Christmas. I cry when they open the doors at the end to show the snow while singing.

A: Michelle M. Pillow: A Christmas Story. Mainly because it’s so quotable and I can drive Mandy crazy during the holidays telling her she’ll shoot her eye out.

I am wishing you all a happy holiday! May it be filled with good food, Netflix bingeing and gratuitous foot rubs.

~~Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? Yes or No? No? What about the elves…?

I think Jack Frost is probably the most interesting Christmas figure. Now imagine Jack Frost played as Idris Elba who has a dark past but is charming…Yeah. That’s a fantasy I can get behind or beneath.

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

I’m currently half in lust with Jessie Williams. He’s not just pretty he’s smart. Smart is like a well-cut tuxedo, baby. Panties will and can spontaneously combust.

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

Every year I watch The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and When Harry Met Sally. My holidays just don’t feel like they’ve rolled around until I’ve seen those two movies. And I’m not a holiday cheer kind of person. I can also be easily talked into watch Love, Actually.

Heidi Cullinan

Thanks for having me, Smutketeers! I’m so excited to be part of the 12 days of Xmas. I have two goodies for you: books one and two from my Minnesota Christmas series, featuring the snowy, sexy, and sometimes sweet adventures of three bears and the men who fall in love with them in a fictional small town in northern Minnesota. I’m working on writing book three for you right now, ready to put under your tree next year.

What’s your favorite holiday read? My favorite all-time holiday read is Samantha’s Heart by Pamela Quint Chambers. Super sweet and cute small town, until the hero and heroine spill out of a sleigh, and then they’re making out everywhere they get a chance, up to and including the hero’s schoolroom. Wicked and sweet, just as I like it.

Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all! I’m a homebody, so I’d love to stay home, watch some television or read by the fire, have some wine and a bowl of soup and bread. Maybe a bath, and then either a retreat to the bedroom, or maybe we go back to that fire and teach it a thing or two about getting hot.


PRIZE: Let it Snow and Sleigh Ride in e-format!

Howdy everyone, and I hope you’re having a smashing holiday season! Enjoy the sights, the smells, and the traditions. Make new traditions of your own. And in the middle of all the hecticness, remember to take five seconds to stop and appreciate your loved ones! Because holidays, like romance novels, are all about relationships. On the other hand, you may want some time to think about being anywhere else but with all those dang loved ones over the holidays…and if so, I suggest escape through reading a short novella about an ex-ballerina having hot second-chance-at-love sexytimes with her composer hero in Paris. Just sayin’.

Have a merry whatever-you-celebrate!
Do you have a favorite holiday movie?
“Scrooge” (the 1970 Albert Finney one), because nothing says Christmas like people singing while dancing gleefully on a coffin! I guess that reasoning could also apply if my answer was “Nightmare Before Christmas”…

Dirtiest thing I’ve done in front of a roaring fire?
Exactly what you’d expect. And my only regret was that it didn’t also involve, like, a huge bearskin rug or something. You know, for effect.

RG the Xmas Elf: Big send off for Day 11, huh? But then, I think this year might be the best yet. So many authors…and now *sniffle* and now all we have is tomorrow…

Twelve Days of Xmas   Day Ten!
by R.G. Alexander on Dec 18th, 2014 163 Comments »

RG the Xmas Elf:

The clock on the mantle goes tick-tock-tick, it’s chiming 10 again

The elf is a-typing all click-clack-click, to-do lists never end

Though I might be running low,

on rhymes and games you know

Still I won’t show you my tears

As I’m sittin’ here wishin’ Xmas was all year.

The authors keep coming out “Here! Here! Here!” We love finding new reads for you

Our song you keep humming let’s give a cheer, The Smutketeers always come through!

Yeah this tis the season stuff

Is sure reason enough

To wear the stockings and ears

Still I’m sittin’ here wishin’ Xmas was all year.

I know we’ll have our paloozas, we can’t help it that’s just what we do

And at RT, you know you’ll see us singing again for you

And we’ll always have the Brass Chattery, for private picture shows *G*

But Xmas is my favorite time, I’m sad to see it (almost) go

Day 10 is impatient to have it’s start, I’ll have to stop singing real soon

I’m glad that we had this small heart to heart, now for today’s authors you’ll swoon

Singh, Holly, and Kennedy

and many more you’ll see

soon will be bending your ear

While I’m sittin’ here wishin’ Xmas was all year.

The joy of the holidays . . . merry, happy, filled with bustle and cheer. All sorts of words take on special meaning this time of year, some of them so old-fashioned they’re rarely used otherwise. Joy is a big word, yes? You almost have to smile when you hear it, it goes so deep. Joy feels like peace and love wrapped together. Hope too. That the present beneath the tree, the one with your name on it, is what you’ve been waiting for. That the presents you’ve given others will be enjoyed. That the world—yours and everyone else’s—will be safer than it was before, with more cheer and plenty spread around. Riches is an old-fashioned word as well, implying more than material wealth. So I wish you riches aplenty this holiday, of any other sort you desire. Dream big, live fully, be merry . . . and may the year to come bring you joy.

Happy Holidays romance lovers! This year my wish for you all is one of peace, love and almost more joy than your heart can handle. So with that in mind I’m inviting you to share in a holiday tradition with my family called: Paper bag Wishes…
Every New Year’s Eve my husband, the twins and I gather around and each decorate a brown paper bag with magic markers and on them we each write a wish or wishes for the New Year to come. We then blow up the paper bags and as one, on the count of three, we pop them all together, sending our wishes out into the universe with a loud boom. I don’t remember where I got this idea (I think I may have read it in a magazine in the doctor’s office years ago) but it’s become a family tradition that always makes us smile and brings in the New Year with hope and laughter.
Cheers to all our wishes coming true in 2015!

With love,
K.M. Jackson

Twas the Night Before Xmas (MAKE ME, TAKE ME-style)

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, except for my mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
But revisions were due, and I wasn’t quite there.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
And I stared at the screen, with swears in my head…
My editor doubted that Quinton and Betsy,
Could get it on like that without getting pretzel-y!

I called to my husband, who was starting to snore,
“We’ve research to do! C’mon, hit the floor!”
Into the kitchen, he flew like a flash,
Ripped off my pajamas and lowered his sash.

With my feet on his chest, we fought the good fight,
But discovered with a gasp…my editor was right!
Groaning and cramping, I heaved my feet higher
And he fell into place, no gymnastics required!

What a difference it made, a simple adjustment.
We could screw like drunk ferrets, without anything busting!
“Thanks, hon’. We’re done. Can you get off me now?
I need to finish the book, now that I know just how!”

MAKE ME, TAKE me is tested, it’s tried and it’s true.
Dear Readers, you’re welcome—I did it for you.
Try it! Get wicked under the Christmas tree lights,
To make a Happy Christmas for all, and for all a Hot Night!

Book slut that I am, I usually want to sleep with the hero of whatever book I’m reading at the moment. Currently I’m reading Jenna’s Consent by Jennifer Kacey, so Nick is giving me the soaking wet *shivers*. He’s so observant, and Jenna likes to hide her dark needs and deep emotions. Things are about to get tied and tense! I would very much like to be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains with Nick…and probably with Ian, too, once he shows up in the story.

As for my perfect, romantic winter evening, Nick and Ian could stoke the fire in our cabin (I hate to be cold) and tie me up in a clever suspension. I’m sure I could count on them to do all sort of wicked things to me until I was completely wrecked (in the good way). Then I’d like to come to my senses tucked in a nice, warm man sandwich in front of the fire. Hopefully dinner will be ready (prepared by magic mountain elves) and they will feed me chocolate, pizza, and wine! Yes! Sexy *and* romantic. Perfection!

To celebrate the holidays and the release of MAKE ME, TAKE ME, the third book in the Hot Nights series, I’m giving away a print copy of SEDUCING THE PLAYBOY and a swag pack! International! Warm and Happy Holidays to all!

He’s every fantasy she’s ever had…

Betsy Mouton knows that easy doesn’t last forever. She’s working her butt off to launch the Last Call Café so her family can leave the New Orleans bar business—and its heartaches—behind forever. That is, until the hottest one-night-stand of her life shows up next door, twice as uncompromising and two million times hotter, offering to buy the bar and send the Moutons to Easy Street.

Hotelier Quinton James has never forgotten the unbelievably hot night he and Betsy shared. Never forgotten how beautifully she submitted to him, or how he found the only peace he’s ever known in her arms. Now that Betsy is the only thing standing in the way of his new hotel, she’s the one in control. But there’s more at stake than her cafe or laying their past to rest—Quin wants a future. With her. All he has to do is convince her…one sensual command at a time.

Happy Holidays from over here in LA LA Land. No matter what you celebrate, I love this time of year! I think at the end of the day I’m mostly a Rankin and Bass girl. Go stop-motion animation. I’m definitely team Heatmeiser and Snowmeiser!

What’s your favorite holiday movie?

I know it is truly the holidays when we do our yearly screening of It’s A Wonderful Life. I am a sucker for this movie with a sweet love story and intrigued about looking at life if you weren’t in it. Though I know most people feel the movie has been done to death, there is a bit a magic to the whole thing. I still get teary eyed when the bell rings on the Christmas tree each year.

Strange, isn’t it? Each man’s life touches so many other lives. When he isn’t around he leaves an awful hole, doesn’t he? – I think that quote from Clarence says it all.

Also on another note, Mr. Potter is one of the only villains to not get his comeuppance. Interesting? Yes.

Anyways, as long as you don’t watch it for the whole month of December, it is an awesome movie!

(Runner up goes to anything Rankin & Bass!)

Solera Winters

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy Birthday, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Winter Solstice or however you celebrate or don’t, I hope you have the best ever, and a Happy New Year for 2015. I know many of you don’t celebrate your birthday during December, but I do, so for all the December babies who sometimes get lost in the holiday madness, I had to include them too.

What’s your favorite holiday movie?

My favorite Christmas movie okay I’m cheating here—I have two. The classic Miracle on 34th Street with Maureen O’Hara and Natalie Wood is all about the magic of believing. I giggle every time the prosecutor gets the funny little look on his face when his father has to admit to his son there is a Santa.

A more modern movie, The Last Holiday with Queen Latifah and JJ Cool J always warms my heart. She’s so beautiful and poignant while she thinks she’s having her last holiday and I wish I had the guts to para-suit jump off the bridge.

Both movies have exactly what I require in a good holiday story—plenty of sappy sweetness, a love story, and an aww ending.


Sascha Illyvich

Hey Ladies, this is typically a time of thanks and gratitude. My career is the longest running of our little group and I’d like to wish them all happy holidays. I’d also like to thank my Honey Bunny for her new support in me and my career, and of course to all the readers who have discovered us and begun to look into our back lists. Most of us write for the fact that we can do nothing else, but this is a dream for many of us, to be able to live off our passion. Thank you and may the holidays be everything you need.

If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

Strand me with the ever sexy Bernadette Peters. That’s all I’m going to say ;)

Dorothy F. Shaw

Hello everyone!
I hope you’re all amped up and ready to handle the holidays. They’re not for everyone… I definitely know.
But… some people LOVE the holidays with a great passion. They bake cookies upon cookies and wrap presents with bows and labels and ribbons with curls on the ends… all done with such care, they rival anything the wrappers at the Hallmark store could do.
So, to all of you out there who take the time to do all of those wonderful holiday things – thank you! You definitely amp up the wonderful for me. And could you come to my house and wrap these gifts and then make me some cookies? That’d be great!
Also, a big thank you to The Smutketeers for hosting the Three Times Lucky boxed set crew. Best Christmas gift ever!
Happy holidays everyone and I hope you get a sweet kiss under the mistletoe!
Love, Dorothy

If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

Ciao. Buon Natale! Thanks so much Smutketeers for hosting the Three Times Lucky crew. It’s a great way to close out the year.

PRIZE: The Vampire & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Christmas (M/M)

Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all!

Can I turn that snow in for some sand? I’ve never been much of a cold-weather person (although we do have a family cabin up in the mountains). The perfect winter evening includes champagne with raspberries, smuggled into a cooler. We’d lay out a blanket, dig a spot on the beach – you know how the sand molds to the indentations of your body – and watch fireworks overhead, the shimmering lights reflecting onto the ocean waves. My man lies behind me, with his knees bent and along the sides of my body, and I perfectly tuck into his chest.

There’s a stark contrast between the warmth of his body, and the cool air surrounding us. I dig my feet into the damp sand. He pushes aside the back of my hair, and leaves a trail of gentle kisses.

Excuse me, while I go pack a picnic!

Happy holidays!

Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas. I love the holidays, especially Christmas. A favorite tradition of mine is to my a few special ornaments every year. I’ve been doing this now since I was in my early twenties. Let’s just say I have A LOT of ornaments that I’ve collected over the years. What are your some of your favorite holiday traditions?

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?
My favorite holiday movie is the movie Elf with Will Ferrell. I don’t care how many times I see that movie, it never fails to make me laugh my ass off.

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

Luke Evans. He just does for me. I love British men. Their accent is so sexy. Yummy!!

Happy holidays from the Southern Hemisphere! If you’re celebrating where it’s cold and snowy, I hope you have fun playing in the snow, drinking hot chocolate, and snuggling up with your own personal Santa Claus. ;-) If you’re like me and having a summer celebration, I hope the beaches are awesome and the surfers gorgeous eye candy! But however you celebrate, have a joyful, wonderful time with your friends and family whether they’re near or far (and don’t forget your cyber buddies!). xoxo – Nalini

Happy Holidays to the Smutketeers! I just competed on stage November 1st as a physique model at the 2014 NPC New England Championships in my home town of Boston, Massachusetts. There is nothing like show day, being on stage in front of a sold out arena feels so great.

Also this November I was selected for the 2nd time as a featured model in Duemila Magazine of Italy. I would like to personally thank Simone Soldera for believing in me as a model to represent the United States in such a prestigious publication. Being named the official spokesmodel for Sandra Shrewsbury’s Addiction Series that campaigns nation wide for awareness against drug addiction is something I am very proud of as well. My latest interview with author Cynthia Sax was released Monday, November 17th and I am in line for several more.

I am the 2014 most tattooed romance cover model in the world. It is nice to have that title. Eventually when another model comes along with more body art than me and takes the title I am proud to say I was the very first guy who broke the tattoo stereotype in the romance world. I paved the way for these guys to showcase their talent to the world where as before they might not have been able to.

Looking forward a little bit into the future, 2015 will be a busy year for John Quinlan. I have a few projects lined up and we will see how they all play out. There is a fitness model reality TV show in the works which I really excited about along with a huge Boston based project set to begin in the spring which I am sworn to secrecy about from agents & lawyers due to copyrights and things of that nature at this time. I have already been signed on as a featured cover model man of romance at the 2015 Romantic Times Convention in Dallas, TX as well as being invited to appear at several book signings. I have been signed by producer Jillian Bullock to play the character role of Sgt. Jason Garrett, a mixed martial arts instructor, in her 2015 film, ‘A Sense of Purpose: Fighting for Our Lives’ which is set to begin filming in Philadelphia this summer.!/JohnJQuinlan

Twelve Days of Xmas:            Day Eight!
by R.G. Alexander on Dec 16th, 2014 167 Comments »

RG the Xmas Elf: We are going to be relaxing with a smaller group for Day 8…so you can catch your breath.  Today’s authors have something in common…Sexy accents and creative, dirty minds *G* I also happen to adore most of them and am working hard to convince them to adopt me and come to conference because it is very sad without them…but that’s another story. In honor of their presence on Smutketeers today, I’ve made an Xmas song to the tune of Land Down Under by Men At Work :)

Travelin’ to the Smutketeers blog

On a tricked out sled head full of eggnog

I met a strange reindeer, he made me nervous

His nose was red but he made me breakfast

And he said, “Nothin’ like Xmas Down Under!

Where readers gather their plunder

these books make hearts pound like thunder!

Come over here, and look at these covers” *G*

Buying books from a gal at RT

She had, Tim Tams and she gave them to me

I said, “Yeah, you’re speaking my language!”

She just smiled and called her menage a man-sandwich

( lol)

And she said, “Nothin’ like Xmas Down Under!

Where readers gather their plunder

these books make hearts pound like thunder!

Come over here, and look at these covers”

Okay, I’m done now lol

Enjoy Day 8! And look at those covers! :)

If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

Oh boy, I have to choose just one? Oh wait, this is the Smutketeers, so I’m assuming we can be more inventive that that ☺. I have this recurring fantasy involving Bradley Cooper AND Ryan Gosling that could definitely work in a remote cabin… hmm… If I ever do get stranded anywhere with those two, be sure not to save me, okay?

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

I just love While You Were Sleeping. It’s maybe a little too sweet for some people’s taste, but for me it’s a great feel good movie for when I need cheering up. And Bill Pullman and lean into me anytime…

~~ Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all!

It never gets very cold where I live in Australia, but we have about two weeks a year where I have to put on a jumper (that’s sweater for you folks *wink*). When it is cold outside I love nothing more than to stay inside, curl up with some takeaway (because no dishes for me!), my man and a good movie and have a good laugh together. And maybe bonk too. Yeah probably the bonking as well.

~~Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? Yes or No? No? What about the elves…?
Oh myyy. No! After seeing Tim the Toolman as Santa and Will Ferrell as an Elf, I’ve been put off having ANY secret Santa or Elf fantasies for a millennium. Ick!

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…
Someone warm? Lol
I’ve never seen much snow, since I live in a semi-tropical part of Australia, and so this would be a real stretch of the imagination. Let’s see. Andrew Lincoln from The Walking Dead. I think he’s both sexy, badass, a great protector in times of trouble, and he’d be interesting to talk to!

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?
I couldn’t go past the Muppet version of Christmas: The Muppet Christmas Carol. The fun is always front and center with Muppet movies. Michael Caine made a great Ebenezer Scrooge and Kermit and Miss Piggie were there too. Awesome. Love it!

~~ Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all!

Since children have been a constant since forever in our lives, I guess a romantic evening with my husband would be wonderful. Time together, where there are no screaming children (with joy or angst!), can be precious. Great gourmet meal, cooked by someone who can cook better than me, and then watch a movie together, talk, and yeah, sexy times as night rolls in.

Twelve Days of X-mas:            Day Seven!
by robinrotham on Dec 15th, 2014 180 Comments »

RG the Xmas Elf: Once upon a time on a cold dreary day,

there were authors who lived in the same lonely way.

All alone in their caves they would type and they’d putter.

For their deadlines they’d write, to themselves they would mutter.

For they loved telling stories with all of their heart

It was reaching the readers that was the hard part.

Then one got an idea, so good it felt like cheating

“If we all worked together instead of competing

We could share all our stories, write anthos and more”

This was an idea that each author adored.

It has Xmas appeal to the elves this is true.

The Smutketeers like doing things in groups too. *G*

Merry Christmas, Smutketeers! I’m super excited to be here and truly honored to be among so many talented authors. For anyone who doesn’t know me, my favorite drink is an Irish coffee. But I’m a sucker for Bailey’s and whipped cream too. So, I’d like to share with you my version of the perfect (not so authentic) Irish Coffee. It’s a wonderful beverage for the holidays or for curling up with a great romance novel. Hope you enjoy!

~ add 1 shot of Jameson whiskey (or Feckin’ whiskey if you want a good laugh among friends at the name) to an empty mug
~ add 1 shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream
~ fill rest of the mug with hot coffee
~ add a dollop of whipped cream (optional)
~ shave dark chocolate on top (again optional, but why would you not? It’s chocolate!

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

At the risk of sounding self-serving, I would LOVE to be stuck in a cabin with my favorite medieval history professor, Dean West from my Spiral of Bliss series. He is brilliant, extremely well-read, and incredibly warm and sexy – what more does any girl need to keep her occupied during a snowstorm?

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

The classic A Christmas Story. The Chinese restaurant scene gets me every time.

~~What’s your favorite holiday read?

I have two – The Polar Express, which is endlessly magical, and O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi, which is the most selfless love story ever.


PRIZE: $15 Amazon gift card, plus e-copies of BREAK THE SKY, and ALLURE and AWAKEN, the second and third books in my Spiral of Bliss series (the first book AROUSE is free)

I love holiday romances as much as the next girl, but this year, my new release has Jake and Dani quite miserable at Christmas. Alone, not communicating, and without a clue as to how to get together. But by New Year’s, everything has changed…and then the real fun begins.

release date: December 16
Pre-order today!


PRIZE: To celebrate, the first book in this series, LOVE IN A SMALL TOWN, is available for just 99 cents, but I’ll give one Smutketeer fan who comments on this post a digital copy for FREE, as well as Pine Harbour mini swag pack by post.

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?
My favorite movie is White Christmas. I love the singing, the fabulous dancing, the costumes, and the underlying message of not forgetting about and honoring our veterans (though when I watched it as a child, that completely went over my head, lol).

~~What’s your favorite holiday read?
O Henry’s Gift of the Magi, because of how selfless the two main characters are for each others. It’s beautiful. I cry every time I read it.

If I were snowed in a remote cabin, I would want Gerard Butler with me. I mean between his smoldering good looks, that amazing singing voice (hello Phantom of the Opera) and his hilarious sense of humor, what more could I ask for?!

Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

My favorite holiday movie isn’t necessarily a holiday one, but it’s something I never fail to watch during this season. It’s the Harry Potter movies. My daughter and I curl up on the couch under our soft, fleece blankets with a ton of junk food and just soak in the stories ONE more time.

Happy Holidays!

2014 has been an amazing year for me, and keeping up with your ravenous reading habits has been more exciting than I could have imagined. I’ve connected with so many incredible readers on social media and you’ve helped me name characters, shops, and even choose careers for our heroes. Thank you! Wishing you a healthy and happy holiday season!


~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…
I assume we’re talking fantasy, as in our fantasy guy wouldn’t be married and neither would we? If that’s the case… I would want to be stranded with Hugh Jackman. He’s wicked hot and sexy, seems bright enough to enjoy a good read, and not too jealous to share with the other naughty heroes who would probably already be on my mountain…Liam Helmsworth, Brad Pitt, Chris Pine (Why do you think I picked this mountain!?). You know, the usual, lol.

~~What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow?
Pick any sexy scene from any of the Love in Bloom novels and…er…yeah…Been there, done that, but not in the snow. Research is always fun! Hmm…snow…now there’s an idea. What month is it?!


PRIZE: GAME OF LOVE, The Remingtons (ebook)

Happy Holidays everyone!

I’m so happy to be here celebrating with the Smutketeers! These are the only girls who could get me on camera bopping to All About That Bass. ;)

I love Christmas and all of the parties and celebrations and traditions that go along with it!

One of my favorite things at Christmas is to stuff my kids’ stockings. I love searching for little things that are fun and meaningful to surprise them with on Christmas morning.

I wish you the very best this holiday season, however you celebrate!

Erin Nicholas

~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

No question—Ryan Reynolds. The one in The Proposal, not the one in Green Lantern. Or no wait, wait, my other favorite Ryan… Ryan Gosling. The one in Crazy, Stupid, Love. No, no, no, Matthew McConaughey. For sure. The one in How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days. No,I’ve got it! Josh Lucas, the one in Sweet Home Alabama. Or… Jamie Dornan! Yes, Mr. Dornan. And I think we all know which role I want him playing ;)

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

Absolutely! SEVERAL! But nothing will ever replace It’s A Wonderful Life in my heart. Ever. Watch it every year.

~~ Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all!

All we need is a fireplace, a lighted Christmas tree, some hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps ☺


PRIZE: So here’s my question for you: You wake up on Christmas morning and find four things in your stocking– a book, a CD, a gift card and candy. Santa got it all exactly right, so…what’s in your stocking? ☺

All answers will get entered to win my prize pack, including the first three books in the Sapphire Falls series (Getting Out of Hand, Getting Worked Up and Getting Dirty) in print and signed, a Sapphire Falls tote and a travel mug along with an ebook copy of my new Sapphire Falls Christmas novella, Getting In the Spirit!

Suzanne Rock aka Ava Conway

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for having me here today. I love a party!

One of my favorite things about the holidays is the great holiday music. There is such awesome variety, from the old classics to the modern hits. One of my favorite songs is a medly sung quite a few years ago by the Bare Naked Ladies and Sarah McLachlan. (Oh God, am I dating myself? lol). The songs are centuries old, but they did a great modern twist.

Do you have a favorite Holiday song? Tell me about it in the comment section. I’d love to hear from you!

Hi everyone! I’m Cari Quinn and I write steamy contemporaries/category romance, plus super sexy New Adult romance, particularly about rock stars and MMA fighters. I’m so happy to be here to be ho-ho-hoing with all of you! I love the Smutketeers and I love Inkheart and I love Christmas—so that sounds like a threeway winner to me! ;) Read on for my answers to some hot holiday questions and check out my giveaway! (Hope you like freaking HOT rock stars that will keep you warm on even the coldest nights!)
~~If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

I actually just wrote some cabin lovin’ scenes in TWISTED, because some of the band members are sequestered in one for a week. And when a sexy guitarist is in a tricked-out cabin with a Jacuzzi, well, things happen. Oh, right, what was I saying? Who would I want for my fantasy…that’s an easy answer. Ian Somerhalder (Damon from The Vampire Diaries) basically makes my world go round. Those eyes, that hair, the smirk. The wise ass comments. The fact that he inspired Oblivion’s lead singer Simon Kagan is just icing on the man cake.

~~Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

Yes! While I enjoy a lot of holiday movies and TV shows – Charlie Brown’s Christmas, anyone?—my favorite is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. I can recite the entire move by heart and I don’t care, because I love it. I watch it probably five times every holiday season. Cousin Eddie always makes me giggle.

You ever really think that you’ll win the lottery? Meet Mr. Right? How about two Mr. Rights?

Somehow the universe is handing me everything I want (except for that lottery part…), and I don’t like it. Not one little bit. Because just when you get all your dreams handed to you on a silver platter, that’s when an airplane dumps its sewage on your house. Or your mama’s diabetes takes a bad turn. Or your mobile phone gets stuck in your hoohaw.

(What? It happens…)

Boring old average me got everything I wanted already, moving from small-town Ohio to big-city Boston to follow my heart. So when the fancy invitation offering me a pile of money to come with the band, Random Acts of Crazy, to perform on an island resort and be their manager arrived, I thought it was a cosmic joke. Enough money to help my mama get what she needed, five days in sunny paradise, and a shot at greatness for the band? Unreal. One big shoe was waiting to drop. On my head.

Just like no one really ever finds a naked man wearing only a guitar standing by the side of the road hitchhiking and ends up falling in love with him and his friend and moving halfway across the country for true love, no one gets an invitation to come to what turns out to be a resort where people make what me and Joe and Trevor do together look like a chaste peck on the cheek. But…

Well. I guess these things do happen.

To me.

When curvy single and struggling romance author Leila Connors receives a mysterious invitation to spend an all-expense paid week on a tropical island, it simply seems too good to be true.

Who is responsible for sending the invitation? Why does the envelope smell of dominant male possession? And most importantly, why her?

With a string of failed relationships and a career on the down-slide, Leila feels she has nothing to lose and agrees to the trip. But when she arrives at her destination, far away from everything she knows, she can’t help but wonder if she made a mistake. That is until she comes face to face with the incredibly handsome Sebastian Phillips, a tortured stranger with dark secrets, and a man who will take without asking. With just one touch he awakens a desperate need within her.

Before too long Leila finds herself caught up in a game of irresistible obsession, where truths are exposed, and the dangerously blurred line between fantasy and reality threaten to drive her to the point of no return.

Getting to Martinique for a modeling assignment with three of Europe’s hottest magazine photographers—Gustave, Fabian, and Leon—should’ve been easy, breezy beautiful. Never did I expect to look up and see a hole in the ceiling of our plane that was bigger in size than my Birkin bag.

Shit! We’re nose-diving toward Eden Island. I pictured how my New York Times obituary might read when I’m gone, “Taddy Brill, Manhattanite, dethroned descendant of the Austrian House of Brillford royalty, dies at age eighteen, penniless, unloved, and a virgin.” I swear this crap only happens to me. Suddenly, Leon pulls me with Fabian and Gustave. Adrenaline racing through me, our bodies clung as one. We prepared to…crash.

When Jenna Sanders leaves her dead end job and accepts a management position at exclusive spa on the island of Eden, she hopes to put the past behind her and move on with her life. Unfortunately, the past refuses to be buried, and when she discovers that her sexy boss is her former lover, old wounds reopen and shake the walls she has so carefully built around her heart. Caine is offering her everything she’s ever wanted, but can she trust him? As they rekindle their passion in the bedroom, secrets rise up from Eden’s waters and threaten to tear them apart. Only by diving deeper can they move forward, and Jenna must decide if she’s willing to risk her heart for a second chance at love.

I had to drop out of college to raise my son after his dad, notorious MMA fighter Ryder King, and I broke up. Ryder is so haunted by demons he won’t let anyone touch his heart. Fame, fortune, and fighting didn’t bring him any peace, and I knew, for the sake of our baby, that I had to leave him.

That’s when I met Ryder’s best friend, Xavier Malone, a former fighter who built a billion dollar empire. Xavier is gorgeous, sweet, and wonderful with my son. I’m falling for him—but I’m scared to commit.

Then I receive an invitation to the island of Eden, a luxurious resort where I can live my every sensual fantasy. I’m certain Xavier sent it. But after I leave my son with my mom and fly to Eden, I discover I’m in the middle of a grudge match between Xavier and Ryder. They are going to fight for me: inside the ring in a televised match, and outside it—where they both plan to seduce the pants off me. But I have a surprise for them too.

The royal family has given Prince Julian an ultimatum: take a much-needed vacation or lose all their support when he makes his bid for Ethereal’s throne. Their choice of destination: a whimsical exotic paradise called Eden, which travel guides describe as a place where every person’s fantasy becomes reality. The cynical workaholic prince expects the island’s magic to be lost on him until he stumbles upon Cass, a blind girl whose face has been mysteriously haunting Julian’s dreams for years. As their time together on the island becomes preciously short, Julian knows he must force himself to accept the truth. Cass may own his heart, but another woman shall be his princess.

Spring Break at college is supposed to be a time of fun and parties, but Alaska Rossi, AKA Jane Smith, is on lockdown thanks to her father’s mafia dealings. She wants only to party down with the rest of her classmates. At least her hot, darkly mysterious bodyguard— deep undercover as her dorm’s resident assistant—gives her something to fantasize about during her boring nights in confinement.

When she wins a campus radio contest, and is gifted with a special invitation to an exclusive island, she knows it’s her chance to break free. After all, it’s a place where no one knows her name, so what danger could possible come to her? But when danger appears in the form of a masked man who takes control of all her pleasures, tapping into her darkest fantasies, she begins to wonder if her undercover lover, and the mysterious bodyguard who’s deep undercover, are one in the same…

Sometimes you need to cut and run and sometimes the ties run too deep to abandon. Bonnie’s job at Purgatory keeps her on edge in more ways than one. Every day the pain of her grief over losing her Dom threatens to consume her. Her only escape comes at the hands of the resident tattooed bad boy who likes to keep things light and loose with a variety of women. He may not be the Dom of her dreams, but he chases away the darkness if only for one night…

Dex is used to unattached submissives coming to him for a chance to feel the kiss of his flogger or the sting of his whip until they find their own Doms. With his busy life of ink and kink he likes keeping his women at arm’s length. Except one night a month when Bonnie shreds him every time she asks him to hold her close.

When a secret invitation to an island resort arrives, is it the answer to their problems? Or their worst nightmare?

Evan McQueen had his entire life planned out. Poised to potentially take over a multi-billion dollar corporation, this trip to the island resort of Eden is Evan’s last chance to make a good impression on the billionaire CEO. He thought he knew where his life was going, was so certain of what he wanted…until a blonde vision stomping across the hotel lobby wearing motocross boots shattered all his preconceived notions.

Dani Knight is a woman who isn’t afraid to defy convention, and unlike anyone Evan has ever met. The island’s tour guide and a world motorcycle traveller, she immediately fascinates Evan, and he can’t get enough of her.

Serving temporarily as the island’s tour guide and resident mechanic, Dani has seen countless guests come and go from Eden. She should be focusing on her upcoming ‘round-the-world journey and the day to day life of the island, not the man who sets her heart on fire. As much as she knows it’s temporary – they both have their own lives to lead – Dani can’t get Evan out of her head…or her heart. The more he reveals, the more she sees a kindred spirit in need of guidance, but she can’t make his decisions for him. She’s seen the island work miracles before, but can it bring together two souls going down vastly different paths?

After ending a relationship to a cheating, domineering man, Isabelle Masters takes off in her leased Mercedes, only to be arrested for grand theft and hauled to a local police station. To her surprise, she is rescued by the most unlikely person possible, Gabriel Dare, a man she’s been attracted to for far too long. Gabe offers Isabelle freedom along with an invitation to Eden, an exclusive island resort where everything and anything is possible.

Although Gabe yearns to possess Isabelle, he knows all too well he must fight his primitive need to bind her to him, and instead help bring out the independent woman she yearns to become — or risk losing her for good.

A woman who needs to run her own life. A man who needs to exert control. Can she surrender to his erotic demands without losing her sense of self once more?

When Kylie Wilson receives a mysterious invitation for an all expenses paid trip to a tropical, all inclusive resort, there’s no doubt in her mind who it came from—Marcus Stone, the only man she’s ever really loved. The same man who’d promised her forever and then promptly left town to pursue his dream without so much as a backward glance.

Kylie owes it to herself to take a chance, and despite her conflicted feelings, she decides to risk her heart again and is soon jetting toward the island of Eden and the man she hopes will finally fill the void in her life.

But when she arrives, all is not as she expected it to be. More to the point, he is not who she expected him to be. And on an island that is supposed to ‘know exactly what you need’, can Kylie open her body, mind, and more importantly—her heart to someone and something, she’s never considered?

Capture, bondage and fantasies fulfilled. It’s all fun and games until someone gets killed.

Bestselling crime novelist Jett Lewis is stumbling over a wicked case of writer’s block, his fast-flowing words having run dry. His publisher’s screaming “deadline”, the fans are ready to riot, and Jett just wants to disappear. His friend Carissa suggests he get away, clear his head…get laid. And she has just the ticket. Literally. Two passes to Eden, an exclusive island paradise. Recently sans girlfriend, Jett convinces Carissa to go with him, and the resort is more than either of them bargained for—especially when the simple beach trip turns to murder. Thrust into a plot sinister enough to rival Jett’s books, the couple embarks on a search for the killer.

The most shocking revelation of all might be their mutual attraction…and how much Jett and Carissa love working undercover.

Roni Loren

A year has passed since Gretchen lost her fiancé, but she still can’t sleep. Or paint. And her new home in New Orleans is either haunted or she’s finally going crazy.

Her bet is on the latter.

So when her best friend, Burke, offers to sweep her away to a private luxury island for a break, she can’t say no. Maybe if she can be someone else for a few days, the ghosts of the past will quiet. At least for a little while.
Burke knows what she’s going through. She lost her fiancé, but he lost family. He gets her in a way no else can. But lately she’s noticing things she shouldn’t about her former fiancé’s younger brother—his sexy smirk, that spicy Cajun accent, and the way he looks at her when he thinks she’s not paying attention. A week alone with him? Dangerous. If she blurs the lines between them, she could ruin the only friendship that means anything to her.

She could ruin it all.

But the island of Eden has its own agenda. The island knows what you need. That’s what the invitation says. She just never imagines it will grant her the one wish that could destroy them both.

Steena Holmes

Lauren Summers is the stable sister, the one who runs the family company while her sisters take off and travel the world. One weekend a year she hides herself away and mourns a love she lost six years ago. That weekend is now, except she’s being whisked away to a mysterious island despite her protests. After being pampered with luxury, massages and the best chocolate a girl could taste, she starts to realize that its time she left the past behind and moved forward with life, and maybe with love. What she doesn’t know, is that someone from her past has other ideas…

Eden Bradley

The island always knows what you need… Miranda lives in paradise— the exclusive Eden resort, the ultimate in fantasy retreats.

Roan, the resort’s dungeon consultant, lives part-time on the island and full-time in the past.

When the sexy Dominant and the sultry pastry chef both receive one of the island’s mysterious invitations they spend a sizzling week together in the dungeon suite. They’re left breathless, wanting more… and hopelessly falling.

Both have been scarred by loss, both have created a nearly impenetrable shell. The intensity and intimacy of kink might be the perfect recipe to open Miranda’s heart again. But can the man who fulfills her every secret desire ever give her what she needs the most?

Opal Carew

Her friend told her dreams come true at Eden, but this is more like a nightmare.

Marissa is shaken when her bad-assed biker ex-boyfriend begins to stalk her. After receiving an invitation to an exclusive resort called Eden, she jumps at the chance to get away.

But even in paradise, she can’t escape the man from her past. As he’s closing in on her, a passing stranger on a motorcycle pulls up and orders her onto his bike. Frightened and willing to take any chance to flee her dangerous ex, she does as he says.

Her knight in supple leather manages to lose her ex and take her to a secret hideaway, but now she finds herself overwhelmed by his potent masculinity and submitting completely to his authoritative commands.

Killer didn’t want to be her saviour. He had problems of his own. But once Marissa’s under his protection, he will do whatever he can to keep her safe. Even force her to face her deepest fears.

There isn’t much that Jillian Noble can resist when it comes to her sexy, gorgeous husband, Dean. She’s become very independent in her daily life, but privately, behind closed doors, Jillian finds she loves submitting to her husband’s more dominant, erotic demands.

When Dean surprises her with an invitation to Eden and promises to fulfill one of her secret fantasies, she can’t wait to find out what’s in store. On her first night on the mysterious island, she’s captured by a rogue pirate and imprisoned as his mistress. What he commands of her is shocking, but there is no denying this dark, forbidden stranger, or the exquisite pleasure that comes with her ultimate surrender.


RG Alexander

Joely knows the island of Eden and its moods better than most. A pilot for its exclusive clientele and the eyes and ears of Eden’s reclusive Master, she’s finally found a place where she truly belongs. Though kink is as common as coconuts in Eden, she’s not about to risk her position—or her heart—by indulging her private fantasies with invited guests.

Austin Wright’s first invitation to the island was meant to mend his spirit after an accident that changed his life, but each time he’s returned, his desire for the pilot of his dreams has gone unfulfilled. Not this time. Austin’s carefully laid plan for learning her secrets and capturing her heart has already been set in motion. His friend Court’s arrival on Joely’s plane is unexpected…and so is everything that happens next.

Eden has a way of making plans—and routine flights—veer wildly off course, and when Joely and Austin find themselves marooned with the wicked Court and his good intentions, it’ll take a sexy shove, a leap of faith, and a little island magic to bring love home.

Joey W. Hill

Vampires drink blood, they’re superior to humans, and they’re sexual Dominants. Every vampire knows those truths. A vampire’s human servant is property, plaything, pawn—and the only living being a vampire can trust. Though she may own him, body, heart and soul, a human servant keeps a vampire from feeling alone in her dangerous, political world. But Kaela has a secret. She’s a vampire with a burning need to submit, to belong to a Master, and definitely not a vampire Master, who will use the advantage for political or emotional domination. But what kind of human male will consent to becoming a vampire’s servant, a 300-year life of utter servitude, to be her Master behind closed doors? An invitation to Eden offers her the chance to discover her elusive hero…and indulge the bliss of surrender.

Lauren Hawkeye & Tawny Stokes

Billionaire Theodosius Vardalos has lived on the island of Eden for over ten years. Though his horrific scars have made him a recluse, he has turned Eden into a resort where the lines between fantasy and reality blur… A place where he sees noone face to face, not even his staff, who have dubbed him “Master of the Island”. Even as Theo helps fulfill the fantasies of his guests, he waits… Waits for the mysterious woman who was shown to him when he first arrived on Eden. He recognizes Noelle Davis the second the nosy reporter steps foot in his castle… But the dream woman is nothing like he anticipated.

He yearns for her submission. But he wonders… can a woman as beautiful as Noelle truly be happy with a beast?



Jessica Clare

Glass artisan Juno Ashmore’s bank account has hit the skids lately. When she’s invited to mysterious Eden to film the reality TV show Pleasures of Eden, she’s not interested. Swanky island location? Billionaire bachelor? No thanks. But when she hears the contestant payment fee of fifty thousand dollars — just for showing up, Pleasures of Eden suddenly sounds more interesting. Screw the billionaire bachelor! Juno will take the contestant fee and have herself a nice beach vacation.

But the billionaire bachelor is none other than Heathcliff Forester, the sexy, arrogant man who broke her heart in college. And Heathcliff’s made it clear that he’s not interested in any girl but Juno. In fact, it’s looking more and more like he’s rigged the entire show just to bring her into his arms again. It should make Juno furious, but all she can think about is what it’d be like to spend her nights in Eden in his bed…

*Part of the Invitation to Eden multi-author series but can be read as a standalone.


Daire St. Denis

Meet Tessa Savage. With no fixed address, Tessa travels the world for business and…pleasure. From the Rocky Mountains to the Greek Islands, there’s no place Tessa won’t explore and very few sexual positions she won’t try. She may not believe in a happily ever with just one partner, but she certainly believes in falling in love–hard–with as many partners as possible.

Tessa Savage has traveled all over the world but she has never been to Eden. So when she receives a personalized invitation to this enigmatic island location, there’s no way she can refuse. She’s been told that Eden will fulfill her every fantasy but instead Tessa is faced with the choice of overcoming one of her two greatest fears; total vulnerability or total submission. To Tessa there is very little difference between these two things…except that the choice means she must make a decision between two very special men, one from her past…the other from her future.

Tessa doesn’t know what to do and she needs help. Your help. Help
Tessa decide what to do in this smokin’ hot, emotionally charged interactive

Warning: Beware of billionaire playboys, hot ex-husbands, bad-boy bikers and an island that makes even the deepest, darkest wishes come true. Recommended for a mature audience.

Falling in Love Can Be Lethal

His slow smile may be Delicious, but she won’t taste it, not again.

Being famous and wealthy isn’t everything it’s cracked up to be. Oscar Zamani learned that life lesson the hard way when he let the seductive Emma slip through his fingers. Now an Invitation To Eden has given him a chance to show her that, this time, he can be trusted.

A secret that might be Deadly to his heart.

Jodie Griffin

If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star… If I were snowed in at a remote cabin, I’d like my husband to be stuck there with me. After 18 years of marriage and a teenager and an elderly parent in the house with us? We could totally use the time alone.

If I’m going for pure fantasy? I’d beg for Joey Hill’s Tyler Winterman. Please and thank you.

Do you have a favorite holiday movie? Miracle on 34th Street. In black and white only, the original version. John Payne, who played Fred Gailey? Holy hot guy. When he kisses Doris? *fans self*

What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow? Well, I’m sure it’s not all that creative, but my husband and I used to celebrate Christmas Eve (before kids/parents living with us!!) under the Christmas tree. There might maybe have been garland involved. Possibly. As in decorating with ropes of glistening white, er…blowing…snow :)



PRIZE: A print copy of Matzoh and Mistletoe and those pervertable clothespins! (US/Canada only)

Rebekah Weatherspoon

Happy Holidays, Readers and Friends! In this season of giving I’d love to offer up all three stories in the FIT TRILOGY. The winner will nab copies of FIT and TAMED, and a copy of SATED upon its release in early 2015. It’ll be like a surprise in your inbox.

Do you have a favorite holiday movie? I love Home Alone, but I think Love Actually is my absolute favorite.

Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? Yes or No? No? What about the elves…? Oh I could totally see myself as a naughty Mrs. Claus. I love kids, helping people and making people happy. What better way to celebrate the day after Christmas and a job well done, than with a few sessions bouncing on the Mr.’s lap. (I can’t believe I just said that.)

If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star… This remote cabin fantasy involves me being in a Bekah sandwich between Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba. Need I say more? :D



PRIZE: Digital copies of FIT and TAMED, and a copy of SATED upon its release in early 2015!

Crystal Jordan

Holiday message: May your holidays be jolly and spiked with some seriously potent eggnog. (Hey, we all need it to get through the shopping madness and all that “togetherness” with family, am I right?) Cheers!

RG the Xmas Elf: Welcome to Day 4! The authors are still arriving, the elves are definitely tipsy, and the music is starting to get loud. So I think today is the perfect day to play a party game with Robin the XXXmas elf.

Let’s play The Smutketeers Dirty Boggle Poetry Slam!! lol

We’ll each take a minute to find the words we can use for our Xmas poem, then we’ll play a practice round and let you take your turn in our next round. *G* Ready?


Now that we have our words…it’s time to write our poems!

RG the Xmas Elf: Wait…I think the XXXmas Elf and I exchanged places for a minute. I’m the innocent one lmao…I know it’s true, I say it all the time. And yes, for those detail-oriented readers, I forgot to add the word PLOW to my poem. Just know…plowing probably happened lol

We’ll have to revisit this conversation later, for now enjoy all the super sexy authors of Day 4, and play Round 2 with us!

Jennifer Leeland

HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all you awesome Smutketeers!

I’m so grateful to all my readers especially this year. What an awesome year I’ve had! You all made me (along with Emily Ryan Davis) a New York Times Best seller (not to mention being in a box set with my hero Joey W. Hill) which was one of the most amazing experiences ever!

Also, I finally found my courage and self-published for the first time under my own steam. I hope you love Edward as much as I have. As a gift to you, I will give one commenter a free ebook copy of “Christmas At Arundale Hall”. And if you subscribe to my newsletter, I’ve got a free gift that’s only for my newsletter subscribers until December 26th.




PRIZE: An ebook copy of Christmas At Arundale Hall!

Tymber Dalton

Happy Holidays from the Sunshine State, where we do wrap our palm trees in lights. LOL Where the only white we shovel is sand, and where if the power goes off during a cold snap, it likely won’t kill you (as long as you have enough blankets). :) I’m a Florida native born and raised here, who’s never lived anywhere else, and I cannot imagine how people even settled the northern climes. LOL Hope everyone has a safe, happy, and stress-free holiday season! :) Hubby and I will be very low-key this year. A 60+ year-old house with an unexpected plumbing problem has really put a crimp in our plans. So this holiday season, I’m just grateful for a flushing toilet that doesn’t leak or fall through the floor! LOL That will be our present to each other. LOL


If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star… Probably that Bear Grylls guy, so I don’t die. LOL (As long as he doesn’t make me eat any damn bugs! Grrrr.)

Do you have a favorite holiday movie? A Christmas Story, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, but I watched the Grumpy Cat movie the other night and fell in love with that, too. So that one is now on the list. :)

Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all! Both. :) Cuddled up in front of a good movie, no lights but the Christmas tree on, and no interruptions. :)
What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree/a roaring fire/in the snow? There might or might not be pictures Hubby took of me and Sir dressed up in our leather pup gear wrestling in front of our Christmas tree one year. I said the caption could be, “I asked for a puppy for Christmas, but not THAT kind of puppy…”



PRIZE: $10 in Strandbucks for Siren-BookStrand’s site!

Jennifer Kacey

Hi, Everybody!!! *waves frantically*

First, let me just tell you that this year I had the BEST Thanksgiving ever. As in, ever EVER. Think the most excellent, naughtiest week you can imagine and then triple it. Yeah. It was that good.

*straightens out halo, blows bangs out of my face and puts on white angel wings*

So…CHRISTMAS!!! I love Christmas time! It’s colorful lights and holiday food and time with friends and family. Not to mention time off from work and some really good writing time if I can work it in. Love getting to participate in spreading the kinky joy to each of you as you prepare for your holiday season!!

Onto the questions!!!

Favorite Holiday Movie – Has to be A Christmas Story! So many memorable one liners. “You’ll shoot your eye out!” The “F********CK!” scene by the car while changing the tire. And the oh so tackytastic leg lamp!! I’ll admit to not really slowing down over the holidays. We make hard candy and cookies to pass out to neighbors. I crochet and make things most years for gifts as well, not to mention my writing schedule. I have another two novellas due in January. Whoot! But if this movie comes up on a channel surf I just have to watch it!!!

Snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains who would I want to be stranded with – OK, so….I read this book years ago by Diana Palmer. Lord of the Desert. It’s one of my favorite books ever because of the hero. He’s a sheikh and a business man and he can ride a horse (Arabian of course) and shoot and fuck like there’s no tomorrow. He’s dark and delicious with a sense of humor and a fair share of domination in his broody stare. So I pick Phillipe Sabon to be stranded with. YUMMO!!!!

Now for…..the giveaway!!! I’m giving away a shiny and fantastic autographed copy of Together in Cyn, the first book in the Members Only Series!! Plus some swagtastic extras thrown in just because they’re kinky and fun!! So everybody comment lots lots lots so you can win!! (US winners only please – ebook will be substituted for any international winner)

The info below is for Jenna’s Consent the latest in the series. With all of the shorts and novellas there are currently 9 books all together. Hope you love it and I hope each and every one of you has a wonderfully kinky Christmas season!!!



PRIZE: A shiny and fantastic autographed copy of Together in Cyn! (US winners only please – ebook will be substituted for any international winner)

Emily Ryan-Davis

Do you have a favorite holiday movie? I have three favorite holiday movies – Die Hard, Hogfather, and Survive Style 5. If you need me this winter, you’ll find me snuggled in bed with John McClane, DEATH, and the Hired Killer. (I think I need to write that book…)

Do you have a favorite holiday read? It just isn’t Christmas until I blow the dust off my dog-eared copy of Terry Pratchett’s HOGFATHER and let DEATH remind me of life’s important things.

What’s the dirtiest thing you’ve done in front of a Xmas tree? Lying in front of the tree in three-day-old pajamas binging on the last of the Christmas cookies. (Don’t look at me like that. Those cookies have to go somewhere before the New Year’s diet kicks off!)




Indulge yourself this holiday season with an autographed copy of Season of Seduction, a Jamberry Nails holiday exclusive manicure set, and a luxurious soak in the tub with a LUSH bath fizz!

Angel Payne &
Victoria Blue

Do you have a secret Santa Claus fantasy? Yes or No? No? What about the elves…?

Angel: I always have imagined Santa to be a hot, gorgeous man in disguise…and loved exploring that fantasy in my book Star of Wonder. Writing the scenes with Dante Tieri doing naughty things to Celina Kouris, while still in his Santa suit, were VERY fun to write! There’s something inherently kinky about a “character” as wholesome as Santa doing illicit things…that juxtaposition…just makes me hot.

Victoria: I have to honestly say I never thought about it. But now that you mention it…me and a bunch of typical man sized “elves” could probably get into a whole bunch of fun in a “toy” shop around Christmas time, couldn’t we?

If you could be snowed in at a remote cabin in the mountains, who would you want to be stranded there with you? And we’re talking fantasy-land: a book hero, a film hero, an actor, a rock star…

Angel: Okay, this question was made for me because I have an answer for every category; LOLLL! For book hero: Eden Bradley’s Shaye, from the San Francisco Doms series! For film hero: Han Solo from Star Wars still does it for me. For actor: Benedict Cumberbatch from movies and Daniel di Tomasso (Witches of East End) from TV. For rock star: Muse’s Matt Bellamy.

Victoria: That does make it easy—categorizing them, doesn’t it? Book hero fantasy right now for me would be a tie between Finn from Dirty Rowdy Thing (Christina Lauren) or Ashton from The Invitation (Roxy Sloane). Film hero I will go with, hmmm *taps chin* Daniel Craig, and rock star is without a doubt Jared Leto.

Do you have a favorite holiday movie?

Angel: Hands down, Nightmare Before Christmas. The music is incredible and the theme, about being happy and embracing who you are, is really uplifting in a very cool, non-traditional way. Tim Burton is a genius.

Victoria: My favorite is from childhood called The Year Without Santa Claus. It had this great song with the Snow and Heat Misers in it! Loved that one!

Give us your idea of the perfect, romantic winter evening. Is it sweet or sexy—or both? We want to hear it all!

Angel: Ideally, mine would follow a full day on the slopes somewhere. I love being physically active, and alpine skiing is so much fun. (And let’s face it, guys look HOT in ski wear.) After a great dinner, we’d come back to a chalet with an awesome outdoor hot tub beneath the stars. Since incredible sex would absolutely ensue and this IS my fantasy, I’ll write in a heated deck to go along with the hot tub…perfect for doing it in a variety of awesome positions. So I guess you can say mine’s sweaty, sweet, and sexy!

Victoria: Mine would be very romantic, and all indoors. I get cold very easily, so I would like to see the snow, but from the warmth of a candle lit room. I can picture a big, sumptuous bed with tons of faux fur covers and pillows, with a roaring fire in the fire place. There would be soft jazz music playing on the stereo, or maybe something new agey, that seems to be pretty hot mood music too. And then…surprise…it would be all about me. My fantasy man is consumed with my pleasure, and he knows so many ways to bring it to me. Ways I never dreamed of. But I’m open to everything he suggests, because tonight, we have no boundaries, I am his willing slave. OK, shit, that could just keep going.




PRIZE: A signed print copy of NO MORE MASQUERADE and a pair of imprinted NO MORE MASQUERADE wine glasses!
