Kyraryker’s quotes


"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Lacking holiday feel

Once Upon a Holiday: Holiday HeatCandy ChristmasChocolate Truffles - Beverly Jenkins, Adrianne Byrd, Kimberly Kaye Terry

 

Task the Fifth: The Kwanzaa:
- Read a book written by an African-American author or set in an African country.

I was impressed that all three felt like complete stories, not rushed, which is usually my biggest complaint about novella/short stories. The first story Holiday Heat had a very believable compatible couple, the second Candy Christmas was the most sexual with plenty of dirty little scenes, and the third Chocolate Truffles was my favorite with the build up of love with the balance of sexy times and relationship building being fantastic.
I rounded down because I didn't really get a holiday feel from the stories, they take place on or around the holiday season but it wasn't really focused on.
