Here's what reviewers are saying, followed by an excerpt from a Seasonal Shenanigans's story.

"This was such a great compilation of sexy holiday short stories. I definitely recommend reading this if you are craving to get in the holiday spirit!

The thing that these fun stories had in common was that the female leads weren’t afraid to get what they want in the bedroom. There is a lovely mix of contemporary romance, science fiction romance, paranormal romance, regency romance, and erotica in this collection, and they are typically a 30-minute read. Even if you don’t usually go for one or some of those genres, I highly recommend snatching this up. You will enjoy them no matter what, and you may even find yourself a new genre to add to your list!" DC

"I was impressed how compelling these were, and found them to be generally well-written, nicely paced, and most of all erotic. I do enjoy my fantasies about hot men, and these guys didn't disappoint." Jelly Bean

"This anthology is faultless. Each book I read I found it to be well written and really enjoyed them. I’m looking forward to popping in and re reading a few over the Christmas period." Cheekypee

"What a wonderful Anthology this is for the holiday season. There is something here for everyone to enjoy - nothing is missing." Ria - Reading is Our Satisfaction

Excerpt from The Promise of Love by Maya Bailey

It was nearly noon and Elizabeth was finally leaving for a long-anticipated walk. Sketchbook under her arm, she was descending the main staircase when she saw him framed in the front door. Not Lord Holden. No, this was the most handsome man she had ever set eyes on. He was tall, nearly six and a half feet of lithe muscle. His shoulders were broad, narrowing to slim hips and long legs encased in grey breeches tucked into mud splattered walking boots.

Her eyes travelled back up to his face. Her cheeks bloomed scarlet to find his eyes locked with hers, a sardonic lift to a black-winged eyebrow. And what eyes they were! Bright peridot green! She was mesmerized. Her chest constricted, and she wondered in panic if her serviceable walking dress rendered her too plain to this god in flesh.

“Lizzy!” Lord Holden’s voice was replete with cheerful affection.

Elizabeth started at her inattention. She had not even noticed him. Her eyes darted away to find Lydia standing at the door of the blue salon looking decidedly amused.

Elizabeth walked down the stairs, feeling sheepish. She wanted to look anywhere but at the visage of the stranger in the front hall. But, against her will, her eyes kept returning to that handsome face. His nose was a sharp, straight blade under a high, wide forehead, his cheekbones high, his mouth sensual over a stubborn, clefted chin. His hair was black as pitch, hinting at mysterious origins, his skin an olive not native to England.

She completely missed any introductions that might have been made, so hard was she fighting to control her visceral reactions to this remarkable man. She could not stop the shiver which ran through her as she felt the sensual gravel of his voice caress her, while he bowed and murmured, “It is indeed a pleasure to make your acquaintance, my lady.”

Sensual Sunday

Sundays are becoming a more popular date day. Whether the bad weather forces you and your honey indoors for the day or you are hosting a small gathering of friends to watch the game, romance is always right around the corner.

Start the day making brunch. (Assuming you slept in.) Pancakes and sausages with a batch of mimosas. Working together in the kitchen can get romantic so don’t rush the meal. Enjoy the time together.

If you have a group of people together, stealing secret moments adds a little fun to a relationship. Find a game for couples to play. If football is your thing, wear matching jerseys.
If it’s just you and your honey, curl up on the couch under a cozy blanket to watch a movie marathon. Go for a drive, listening to music and maybe singing along. Laughter and romance often go hand in hand.

Make a point to touch each other often. Tease with slow, soft caresses on the arm followed by a sexy smile. A hug from behind is like a full body embrace heightening the senses. Lean against each other and enjoy the warmth of your bodies coming together.

Enjoy your Sunday and the little sensual moments.

This is not just a love story, it’s an obsession…


I can’t keep my eyes off the tall, dark, and confident man who stops in the coffee shop every morning. I want this stranger more than I’ve ever wanted anyone before, even though I only know his first name. As an author, my imagination is my ultimate writing tool, men like Kane my muse. And the minute he leaves, I’m overcome with fantasies I can’t control and my fingers fly across the keyboard… until one day, I almost snap. My embarrassing outburst has me running out the door when he catches me and takes me to his home.
Though it’s risky, I can’t resist him. And with one kiss, he now owns me. This man will capture my sanity and trap it forever. He’ll steal me one piece at a time until he possesses me completely. He’ll ruin me for any other man. But I don’t want anyone else, for it’ll always be forever him.



Never in my life did I think my high school obsession would move right next door. I’ve never wanted anyone but him. Reid Turner is my ultimate fantasy. And I still want him. Badly. When he watches me through my bedroom window taking matters into my own hands, things suddenly take a turn…

And now that I have him, I’m not letting him go.


I never knew she existed and now I can’t get enough of her. She consumes me. When this night ends, there may not be anything left of me, she may own me completely. She my master and I her slave. In one way or another I will atone for never noticing her all throughout high school. I will gladly grovel at her feet to make up for what a fool I was.

Besides, who can turn down that luscious body of hers? Curves in all the right places, a mouth that could make a grown man cry, super responsive during sex, and none of my twisted desires so far have made her bat an eye. And did I mention? She lives right next door. She may be the perfect woman for me.



The same week every year he comes to my little resort in Maine for five days, then disappears. His darkness, his demons, intrigue me and I need to know his story.
I hope he shows up again this year, because I’m determined to talk to him, make him see me and not look through me like I don’t exist. Make him realize I’m not just some anonymous person who hands him a key.
No, this year will be different.
I haven’t gotten laid in a long time. So, tag, he’s it.
For the past three years, I’ve come up to this remote area to forget, to bury my grief. But this year, I don’t need a trip to this run-down resort, this little cabin on the lake, to survive this week. However, there’s one thing I’ve left behind each year when I head back to reality…
I’ve found the right woman who’ll fill the emptiness deep inside of me, the hole that’s lurked there for years. I can’t get her out of my head. Funny thing is, I don’t even know her name. I never asked.
This year that’s going to change. And I hope she’s willing because I’m taking complete control.


I’ve loved Bree my whole life. We were each other’s firsts when we were young and inexperienced, and I totally screwed up. I disappointed her, causing her to cry and run away. But over the years, I’ve learned, I’ve perfected, and I’ve dreamt of one day getting another shot with the love of my life.
When I finally get the chance never in my wildest dreams did I think Bree was like this. The girl who used to wear yellow sundresses is no longer Bree, she’s Brianna, my new mistress. I’ll do whatever needed for her forgiveness, even go to my knees and grovel.
However, there’s just one thing... I want Bree back, not Brianna. Once I get Bree, Brianna can do to me what she will.

Maybe Noah doesn’t realize it, but he’s been mine ever since we were teens. I tried to apologize for disappointing him our first time, but never got the chance.
Now, when he approaches me at the bar, I can only think about all the things I want to do to him and with him. I plan to show him the skills I’ve honed over the years.
Little does he know what’s in store for him because I know his secrets, his desires, his needs. And I plan on giving it all to him.
However, just when I think I’m in control, he turns my world upside down.

Note: All books in the Obsessed series are standalone novellas. It is intended for audiences over 18 years of age since it includes explicit sexual situations, including BDSM.
