We’re in a world of Santa, elves and pixes. There’s also shifters and mates. That’s exactly what happens when Magnus sees Melody. He knows she’s his mate but Melody is a half pixie. How can anyone possibly love her?
Melody has no self confidence being half pixie so she doesn’t understand Magnus’ interest in her. Magnus knows she’s his mate from the first moment they meet. The Santa world is a cute addition. I like how Santa has an app and that there’s a real problem with marketing. Comedy comes off subtle and entertaining in this story. The romance really shines through. I absolutely love that even though they’re mates and that they’re attracted that the romance is a slow sizzle. It doesn’t feel rushed or slow but it’s the perfect pace to get you hot and bothered. The sex is seriously hot! They have such great chemistry.
Bear’s Beauty is a sexy tale you can read all year long!
Jenna loves her musical career but the problem is everything else in her life. Her marriage is falling apart and she becomes unhappy with the direction of her future. When her high school sweetheart returns it may just be the miracle she was hoping for but secrets still keep them apart.
I don’t even know where to start this review. It’s one of those books that so amazingly romantic that it’s hard to sum it up in one sentence. Jenna, oh Jenna. I want to scoop her up into a hug. Her husband’s a jerk and then Brand is back in her life. Total swoon. Talk about complicated. He’s also got a medical secret that’s really heartbreaking. Oh, Jenna’s got a freaking huge secret of her own. When Jenna final breaks it off with her husband she knows life is too short to pass on what she wants. And what she wants is Brand. Although I’m not musically inclined I had no problem following this genre story. In fact, I found it wonderfully interesting.
If you like contemporary romance you’re going to love Winter Symphony!

This is such a weird idea. A vampire working at the north pole. Yeah, it made me giggle. It is actually a really great story! Christopher is a tired Chief Toy Officer who happens to be a vampire. Samantha is tasked by Santa to be his assistant but both of them are having a hard time keeping it professional…
Quirky. Yeah, that describes this book. I love the twist in the story with Santa being a businessman rather that the jolly guy we know. The world is more of a modern factory type of place. I really like that twist. The chemistry between Christopher and Samantha is immediate. Both of them feel that pull but sneaking off to make out when toys are due is seriously frowned upon. I love, love, love (yes that needed to be written three times) these characters. Once the lust goes over the edge for these two it’s a steamy sleigh ride. (See what I did there?) Samantha is a bit awkward and Christopher is so damn sexy. But Samantha isn’t going to just fall into his arms, despite how hot he is, which makes me like her even more. I love this story and I’m not usually one for Christmas tales. The Beauty of Forever may have just changed my mind about reading more holiday books.
A must read no matter the time of the year! I cannot wait to read more books in this series!
Christy is Santa’s daughter and the sexy muscular frosty has had a thing for her. He resisted and left but on his return, he may just give in. When Christy is taken by his old enemy he knows it’s time to claim his mate…
I found the beginning of the book very stiff and telling. The plot itself is fun and interesting if not very fleshed out. I don’t understand why there are mates like a shifter book and are they in the North Pole? Did I miss that part? The world building isn’t very extensive. The editing is also rough in places. Anyway, Christy is stiff but the Jack point of view is fantastic. I had no problem connecting with his character and wishing I ‘m a baker so I could catch his attention! There’s even a bit of action and suspense. The romance is good but again not quite there. She accepts him too quickly. The plot shows real imagination! This is a cute story that has the makings of being fabulous. I’m really looking forward to seeing what else this author can create.
This is a collection of three of RJ Scott's stories set around Christmas. Each story is very different from the rest. But each story has its own emotional pull to it. The first two are stand alone. Number three, you need to read the first book, Deefur Dog to understand the relationship shown in Deefur and The Great Mistletoe Incident. As always, this author writes great characters, full of human fragility, flaws and failings.
Angel in a Bookshop:
After a meltdown and the loss of his father, Josh is back at the book shop his dad owned. Does he want to sell it or keep up with the family business? Michael has the shop next door. He’s the exact opposite of Josh, carefree and easy going. What is it about Josh that is different than the thousands of other humans he’s dealt with? Watching the relationship develop between the two is beautiful. Each has their own worries and fears. Josh with his health, his mom, the shop and what to do. Michael wonders if Josh is worth giving his immortality up for.
Jesse is still not over the betrayal of his ex boyfriend. Everything about Christmas is a reminder of the worst time of his life. He hates Christmas. It’s been two years, but he’s not over it. His agent sends him on an assignment to Eden Vale, a town he’s calling Christmasville. There he meets Gabriel, who still believes in the magic of the season. Can Gabriel help Jesse stop hurting and find the magic in the season? The author wrote Jesse so you feel his pain. You want him to find happiness in life again, to find the passion that fueled his art and photography. Gabriel is a gentle soul, happy with who he is and his place in life even if he is a bit lonely. I love the journey as Jesse and Gabriel find each other. And when Jesse finds meaning in Christmas again.
Deefur and The Great Mistletoe Incident:
Deefur is a Great Dane; his family consists of Cameron, who lost his first husband at Christmas time. There is Emma, who is Cameron’s daughter. And Jason, the new love in Cameron’s life. But Christmas is back and for Cameron, with it all of the old memories and fears. When Jason goes overboard with Christmas decorating, Deefur eats mistletoe. This causes tempers flair, and anxiety to rise along with fears that show in both Jason and Cameron. All of these characters and the dynamics of the relationships are found in the first story. You need to read it. I love this story! I love having another glimpse at Cameron and Jason’s relationship.
RJ Scott's Christmas Collection is a must read for the holidays!
EB Scrudge owns a wealthy insurance company. He’s angry at the employees that talk behind his back and doesn’t mind firing them even though it is Christmas Eve. Willie Simpson is his person secretary who has a mother with dementia and a crush on his grumpy boss. Oh, and they’re having sex in the office. And then, as the old tale goes Scrudge gets visitors...
Are you getting the similarities yet? I think they’re adorable and unique. There are so many moments in this book when I literally laughed aloud. Strange looks be damned, it is funny! And then there’s the scene with Scrudge’s family that had me all teary eyed and angry. This book is positively fabulous! A must read for Christmas!
Entrusted with their care, Kirby is on the run with his young nephew and niece. Hiding at a train station, the bad guys find him. He’s getting beating up in the bathroom while trying to protecting them. He’s rescued by Stefan, who takes down all three of the thugs. Then Stefan whisks them away to his friend’s business, Bodyguard Inc. He thinks it’s a safe place for them to hide. Stefan works for the CIA and is hanging out in the UK till the mess in the States can be taken care of. He can’t go home till the people trying to kill him can be caught. Taking care of this little family he’s found might take his mind off of his troubles.
Kirby thinks he has nothing and isn’t worth much. He can’t understand why his brother trusted him with the care of his kids. It is beautiful to watch as Kirby comes to the understanding that he is worthy. That he is capable of caring for his niece and nephew. That he deserves the love of Stefan. Watching Stefan go from protector to lover and then seeing the relationship bloom is wonderful. I love watching as these two grew closer. As always, this author writes great characters, so real and believable. You get pulled into their lives. This story has enough suspense and action to keep me reading and not wanting to put it down. This is book 5 in the series; you do need to read the series in order. This will let you understand and follow the secondary characters and their interactions.
If you are a fan of the series, Love's Design is a must read. If you haven’t read the series yet, you need too!
