Christmas Come Early
by Bethany Lopez
Interning over the holiday's at an Easy Listening Radio Station may not be rock-lover Jules's ideal position, but she's eager to get her foot in the door and begin her journey towards her dream of being a DJ. When she meets co-intern Seth, she's not impressed by his farm boy, country style, but you can't always judge a man by his khaki pants.
At first glance, Seth knows that Jules is the kind of girl his mother always warned him about, and his brothers encouraged him to seek out in the city. More interested in music and lyrics than the DJ booth, Seth is interested in learning everything he can about the business, but welcomes the kind of distraction that Jules provides.
Can the magic of Christmas bring this country boy and rocker girl together, or will their spark die out when the holidays over?

by Opal Carew
Given one chance to break the curse which has held Angelique in its grip for two hundred years, she is faced with a heart-rending decision. Can she sacrifice Nick's happiness for her own freedom?
Hi. I'm Opal Carew, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. I write erotic romance for St. Martin's Press and Samhain Publishing, and I self-publish stories. I also write romance as Amber Carew.
So why do I like writing erotic romance? I like being able to push beyond traditional boundaries. I like dealing with a female character who is growing and evolving - questioning her sexual boundaries and pushing past them. My stories usually include menage a trois. It is great fun to write a heroine choosing between two equally appealing heroes... or more.
These aren't women who just jump into bed with anyone. They find themselves in an unusual situation - something exciting and erotic - but a situation where they have to push themselves beyond their comfort level. As a result, they grow as a person. So often fear holds us back - of what others will think of us, of what we will think about ourselves - and we don't follow our hearts. These women push past that fear.

Marley can’t believe Cindy’s thoughtful present.

USA Today Bestselling Author, but I'm still simply Yvette Hines, some people call me SASSE or SASSE Yvette. I'm an erotica author that loves pleasurable hours between the sheets.

I'm married to my best friend. A guy that makes me laugh 'til I can't breathe and one who steals my breath every time he walks into a room. I believe in happily ever after like the rising of the sun depended on it.
