‘Twas the night before…no, wait, wrong story…
Affinity and their authors, love the holidays, any and all holidays. And what better way to celebrate the holidays than with a book filled with several short stories centered around different holidays.
Erin O’Reilly (Auld) and Alane Hotchkin (Fire and Ice) start us off with their New Year’s stories.
Spend Australian Day with Erica Lawson in Slow Burn
Join Ali Spooner (Catch) and Lacey Schmidt (Love’s Luck) as they celebrate St. Patrick’s day.
Fly away with Jen Silver as she brings the Beltane party to us.
An anthology wouldn’t be complete without a little trick or treating, so grab your costumes and enjoy Halloween with Annette Mori (Vampire) and Charlene Neil (Trick)
And last, but certainly not least, we have Christmas to bring this anthology to an end. TJ Vertigo gives us a Reece and Faith styled Christmas in Merry Christmas Reece and Annette Mori brings Nicky and the gang back for Nicky’s Christmas Miracle.

This book contains ten wonderful stories from nine fantastic authors. Some are long, some short, some sexier than others, some more romantic. All of them are brilliant, excellent and entertaining! I love anthologies because they are good to read a little at a time but this set is so great you will want to read it cover to cover all in one go.
I tried to pick a favourite but just couldn’t. They all has such beauty, grace and love. I’m including a quick synopsis of each of the stories and I’ll bet you wont be able to pick a favourite either.
Auld Lang Syne by Erin O’Reilly:
Marta betrayed her true love. Alone and miserable she returns to the place they met in order to find some closure. It just happens Her love, Colleen, is there too for the same reason…Very touching.
Slow Burn by Erica Lawson:
Erin is on vacation and gets badly sunburned. Alison comes to her rescue and takes her home. Eventually neither wants Erin to return home.
To Catch a Leprechaun by Ali Spooner:
Belle and Blackie do back to South Boston for St Patrick’s Day to visit the friends they left behind. Beautifully written with an amazing love scene. This one made me really happy.
Love’s Luck by Lacey Schmidt:
Cara and Becca are married for a year when Becca disappears. A year later Cara finds her missing lover and convinces her that what has happened is nothing that can’t be over come. This is a great story about acceptance and unconditional love.
Beltane in Space by Jen Silver:
This one is a definite Awwww story. An all female crew of a spaceship celebrates Beltane. Captain Lexie finds her love who admits, over pillow talk, to having warned others away from her Captain.
Vampire Pussy…Cat by Annette Mori:
This one is too precious. Nicky is a new vampire with a knack of causing trouble. This time she has convinced the High Council to allow Vamps to go as themselves for Halloween. She rescues a dying kitten by turning him…. and of course since her wife is pregnant, she has to give up her favourite pass time, swearing. This is a follow up story to Ms. Mori’s Love Forever, Live Forever.
Trick or Treat by Charlene Neil:
Emily is out for a night of trick or treating when she meets Robin. Robin is a psychic and a medical examiner. Guess what happens the next day at work…. mmmm
Nicky’s Christmas Miracle X3 by Annette Mori:
Nicky and crew from Love Forever, Live Forever are back in this short. This time Nicky freaks out about a future event and has to get he act together quickly!
Merry Christmas Reece by TJ Vertigo:
Ive never read any of the Reece and Faith stories but I will now! This is a wonderful but long story of a family Christmas. Add in some insanely hot public lap dance and a 28 page fiery sex scene and wow….
Don’t wait til the holidays to get your copy of this great book. Anytime is cause for celebration when reading this awesome anthology!!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
