“Night of the Moving Parts?” Ian asked, looking skeptical. “That sounds like a porno.”
“It’s not a porno.”
“How would you know, though?” he pressed, grinning at me. “Have you ever seen a porno, Nettles?”
Jingle My Bells by Meredith Spies
Less than two weeks till the winter solstice and somehow it’s my fault the witches have misplaced their damned bells. If they weren’t such jerks about demon-borns being part of the Grand Council and their plans, maybe they wouldn’t need to use the stupid things anyway. But until they’re ready to admit that without us, there’d be no them, I guess they’re out of luck. It’s just dirty pool to send Whitaker Frost, scion of the Frost witch clan and sexiest man alive ohmygods to my shop when I’ve been accused of hiding those damned bells and endangering the witches’ annual winter solstice ritual to maintain their powers.
No matter what Rowan thinks, I haven’t forgotten our encounter at the summer solstice, and I know for a fact he hasn’t. The way he looks at me when he sees me in his shop just before the winter solstice is enough to set me on fire without the help of any of his demon magic. I don’t blame him for being hesitant with me—I am a witch, after all, and witches have been doing their damnedest for centuries to keep demon-born out of magical communities and gatherings. I wish he’d understand that I not only want him in the council, but in my bed, my life…
Jake’s Heart for Christmas by Angelo Diaz
Two online friends meeting up for an unforgettable Christmas vacation.
After facing some trouble back home, Declan was more than eager to spend Christmas with his online best friend, Jake, in his hometown of Winterwood. It was everything he’d hoped it would be. The town was friendly, Jake was a ray of sunshine, and the spirit of Christmas was in every corner. What he didn’t expect was the growing connection between him and Jake. The more time Declan spent with Jake, the more the line between friendship and something more started to blur. Maybe the trip to Winterwood was exactly what Declan needed to find himself again.
Now, all he wanted for Christmas was to win over Jake’s heart.
Jake’s Heart For Christmas is a sweet and spicy Hallmark-style Christmas romance featuring best friends becoming lovers, sexual awakening, first times, hot kiss under the mistletoe, and a happy ending!
Excerpt: Jake’s Heart For Christmas by Angelo Diaz
I felt my whole body sweating before I even looked up, already guessing what it could be. When Declan and I lifted our eyes, my assumption was correct. A mistletoe hung right above us. Its red bow had little gold outlines with specs of white along the leaves to represent snow.
Declan and I looked at each other with widened expressions on our faces. This couldn’t be happening, right? Not after the awkwardness we experienced earlier that day.
Looking to Bruce and Cassidy, I shook my head. “Oh, I-I don’t think this is a good idea. I mean, Declan’s–”
“Jake,” Declan calling my name stopped my rambling.
When I faced him, he gave me a reassuring grin.
“Are you sure?” I asked, but it came off as more of a whisper.
Now, I was positive that I was sweating underneath all my layers. My heart was drumming so loud, my ears were ringing. Declan and I were under a mistletoe, and he was giving me the okay to kiss him. I studied his face for any signs of awkwardness or discomfort, but I didn’t find any. All I saw in those dark chocolate-colored eyes of his was…something. Fondness? Tenderness? Caring? It was hard to decipher.
I took a step closer to him, inhaling the scent of my soap he used to shower with this morning mixed with the subtle hint of his cologne. He licked his lips for a brief second, and the sight had my cock swelling in my pants. I remembered how hard I felt when his body was against mine. The way his hands felt in mine when he pinned me down. It was playful, and erotic all at the same time.
I gulped, slowly lifting my hands to cup his cheeks. His skin was cold from the air outside. The faintest stubble tickling my fingers. Declan’s eyes slowly closed as he leaned his head down towards me. Mine closed just as I lifted my chin, and I nearly cried out at the feel of his lips pressed to mine. It was warm. Electrifying. Amazing.
When our lips parted, I stayed put, waiting to see if Declan would pull away or not. He didn’t. Instead, he brought his lips back to mine, deepening the contact. I felt his tongue pressing my lips, seeking entrance. I willingly opened up, allowing his tongue to explore my mouth. I groaned at the sensation, wanting more. Needing more. When I felt his fingers running into the curls of my hair, I felt my eyes burning with unshed tears.
How was it that I was kissing a straight guy, and it turned out to be the best kiss of my life?

“Back off, I saw him first.”
Gabriel glanced at me, smirking. “What are we? Five-year-olds fighting over a new toy! If he saw you with your nose pressed against the glass, peering out like some crazed stalker, you’d stand no chance. Anyway, I’m the cute one.”
