Put some sizzle in your holiday season with these erotic novellas penned by three of the best-selling authors in the genre.
In Sue Lyndon’s His by Law, Lucia, a homeless trespasser, finds herself on the wrong side when she enters the home of a wealthy stranger. But she finds more heat than she bargains for when she encounters handsome, dominant Jackson McNabe. Jackson sees potential in the beautiful waif, for he’s in need of a wife. But what seems like a fairy tale for Lucia comes at a price, for Jackson demands obedience and plans to enforce it with spanking. Will the two find love? Or will a sinister plot tear them apart before their holiday marriage can take place?
In Ava Sinclair’s The Christmas Fig: A Tale of Victorian Correction, pretty Millicent Hargrove, finds it hard to wait to find out the contents of her gifts. But her husband Edward, while indulgent, is also firm and warns her not to peek. When she disobeys, Edward decides that her disobedience warrants more than just her usual spanking; he plans to introduce her to the practice of “figging.” Such a punishment is sure to gain her obedience. But can Millicent forgive herself for selfishly violating her husband’s trust and ruining his special surprise?
In Vanessa Vale’s Mistletoe Marriage, Julia Belmont dreams of being married, but she never thought it would take place in a jail to the man she hates. But being forced to the altar through trickery doesn’t diminish her feelings for the man who truly has her heart. When Garrett Rivers discovers the woman he loves has married a dangerous criminal, he is determined to save her. But can he heal Julia’s heart and awaken her deepest passion now that they’re back together? Mistletoe Marriage is a story of Christmas miracles, and Christmas hope.

His by Law by Sue Lyndon – 3.5 stars
His by Law is a relatively cute domestic discipline story. There’s not a lot to it: A homeless Lucia breaks into Jackson McNabe’s home one frigid winter night. He catches her but instead of turning her in to the authorities he marries her.
The beginning of His by Law is pretty cute but the ending bothered me a bit. View Spoiler »The unscrupulous uncle showing up the very day of Lucia’s unexpected marriage did not work for me. It should have been impossible for that to happen – Lucia has been homeless in that town for months with no prospects of any marriage or even a decent job. The text also stated that the reason Lucia stayed in the town was the extreme dangers of travel. So how on earth did the uncle show up, find out the particulars AND get Jackson arrested considering the townspeople have seen Lucia homeless for months?? « Hide Spoiler I still enjoyed this little short for what it was, however.
The Christmas Fig: A Tale of Victorian Correction by Ava Sinclair – 3 stars
The Christmas Fig was ok. I never really warmed up to Millicent – I found her to be a horribly selfish brat – although I appreciated the growth she achieved by the ending. What I did enjoy about this little short was the figging Millicent received and deserved.
Mistletoe Marriage by Vanessa Vale – 3 stars
Mistletoe Marriage was cute-ish but it did NOT fit with the other stories in this anthology. I wasn’t very involved with the story and found it to be rather boring.
