3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 26 Oct 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
BEWARE - These stories have already been published in different novellas!

It would seem that as it is coming up to Christmas the publishers cobbled together three stories relating to "the Christmas season" and packaged it as a new book. The stories are all good and I would have been very pleased with the book if I hadn't already read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun holiday reading! 21 Sep 2006
By Laurie - Published on Amazon.com

When Osbourne "Ozzie" Decker is asked by his friend and fellow SWAT officer, Lucius Ryder, to keep an eye on Marci Churchill, twin sister of Lucius's new wife, Bethany, he hesitates. His hesitation stems from the uncontrollable desire he has for her. Marci turns him inside out with just a look, who knows what spending several days in close contact with her will do to him. Someone seems to be following Marci, and Lucius and Bethany won't leave her alone to go on their honeymoon unless she is protected. Osbourne keeps Marci close by his side, and when it turns out that she is equally attracted to him, even the cold temps outside can't cool them off. Marci's ability to "hear" animals is a blessing and a curse. There is always someone who wants to talk to her or interview her; she just wants to be left alone. Osbourne always thought that Marci, despite being totally hot, was a bit of a kook, but once he witnesses first-hand her very special gift, he finds himself falling in love with her. Osbourne and Marci are a perfectly sweet couple. Both are written to be caring and tender, typical of Lori Foster, who is incredibly talented at writing characters that feel like someone you know and love, comfortably common and just a little bit flawed.


Allison Newberry excitedly takes her sister up on her offer of the use of a mountain chalet in the Colorado Rockies town of Good Cheer for the holidays; she can't wait to spend some down time, all alone. No family, no work, no pressure, just her and maybe a ski hunk or two. Her plan is looking good until old flame Lee Simonson shows up at her door, when it suddenly becomes obvious that they have been duped into spending the week together by their meddlesome families. This is topped off by a huge snowstorm that has them completely snowed in. Despite a rocky start, these two take up where their relationship ended a year prior, but in the back of Allison's mind is Lee's dangerous job; how he could take off on a photo shoot to some drug-infested part of the world, not knowing if he would make it back. When the two walk into town a couple of days later and meet some very quirky townsfolk, reminiscent of days, no, make that years, gone by, they are filled with a loving warmth that comes with a sense of belonging. After they return to California, it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems in the town of Good Cheer. This is my first read by Gemma Bruce, but it certainly won't be my last. Allison and Grant are sensual, fun and well-written.


Madison Tierney finds herself stranded in the woods in the middle of a raging snowstorm. Sure, she wanted to avoid going home and needed some time away, but this is just too much. She sees a light in the woods and follows it, exhausting herself fighting the wind and blowing snow, and collapsing in a heap when she finally reaches the doorstep. When Grant Monroe finds a beautiful woman on the ground at his door, the first thing he does is make sure she's ok and begin to warm her up. After that he has to fight the strongest attraction he's ever had for a woman. He finds himself wanting Madison so badly that he can hardly stand it, but insists on getting to know her before acting on the attraction. Once these two finally do get together, they practically combust, but as the storm lets up and they return to civilization, Madison's attitude cools considerably, confusing Grant, who realizes that he has fallen madly in love with her. Janice Maynard never fails to write characters that are passionate, caring, and always respectful, and Madison and Grant are no exception.

This is a fun anthology by three very strong voices in women's fiction, you won't want to miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and sexy holiday love 9 Oct 2006
By Stacy ~ - Published on Amazon.com
Three warm and toasty love stories to get your blood pumping and your imagination going during those long cold nights. In Lori Foster's "Do You Hear What I Hear?", pet psychic Marci Churchill has had to deal with skeptics all her life, not to mention those who thought her talents might bring in big money. She's used to being alone, save for her twin sister, but now her sister is going off on her honeymoon and doesn't want to abandon Marci, especially during the holidays, so her new husband Lucius recruits his friend and colleague Osbourne Decker to keep an eye on her. Ozzie would love to do more than that with the sexy brunette, but he already knows Marci and thinks she's a little off-her-rocker, reading animals' thoughts and evaluating their feelings, and no matter how hot she is, he doesn't do crazy. But when the little do-gooder does something that might involve breaking the law, he has no choice but to get involved, and the more he gets to know Marci, the more he realizes what a special woman she is, and having her in his life is what Christmas is really all about. Foster pens another earthy and protective hero, one that perfectly matches the tender-hearted, passionate heroine. After all, who doesn't love a man who melts for his woman and her animals? Sweet and sexy, this quick story will bring happy tears to your eyes.

Lost love re-discovered is what Gemma Bruce's "Bah Humbug, Baby" is all about. Allison Newberry is rather happy with her sister, who has given her a generous Christmas present - a stay at a Rocky Mountain resort for the holidays. Just her and her laptop for 6 days. The perfect chance to get some work done. Only fate has other plans. After braving the elements, she walks inside the chalet only to find that her former lover Lee Simonson occupying her space. Realizing what both their families had done, Lee decides he'll just take off for his trip to Columbia earlier than planned. Only the weather is not cooperating, and he's stuck in closed quarters indefinitely with the woman he once loved. Will this charming town and its residents convince these two workaholics that there is more to life than deadlines and the next assignment? Get lost in this quaint yet sexy story about the true magic of the holidays.

Janice Maynard's "By Firelight" brings two lonely yet loving souls together for the holidays. Originally intending to spend Christmas with friends, Madison Tierney instead ends up at the cabin of mountain man Grant Monroe while walking through treacherous conditions. Once she thaws out and they get a good look at each other, their attraction is instantaneous, but both have been burned before and don't have much experience with real love, and Grant doesn't want to take advantage of her, especially after her recent ordeal, so they wait. However before long they give into their passion, which is every bit as explosive as they knew it would be. That part is easy, it's the emotional stuff that gets complicated and messy. Will their fears of commitment tear them apart, or bring them the love of a lifetime? This Christmas they learn all about the spirit of giving, and that includes ther hearts. Maynard fans will once again sigh with happiness as Maddy and Grant fall in love and realize it's more than worth the risk when it's the person you're meant to be with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heat up your holidays! 26 Sep 2006
By Jackie J - Published on Amazon.com
Who doesn't love a good sexy holiday story?


When Sgt. Ozzie Decker reluctantly agrees to watch over quirky animal psychic Marci Churchill, he's concerned about more than her belief that she can "talk" with animals; he's also worried about keeping his desire for her under control. These two couldn't be more opposite: Marci is exuberant about life, while Ozzie is more negative, due to some bad experiences. The sexual tension between these two, along with a stolen donkey thrown in the mix make for a funny, sexy story. The chemistry between these two is instant, and eventually smolders the pages!

I loved Marci when she appeared in Luscious' story in BAD BOYS of SUMMER, and was so excited when Ms Foster promised us Marci's story in this anthology. This story is everything Lori Foster fans have grown to expect from her: witty dialogue, loveable characters, and steamy satisfying romance.

BAH HUMBUG, BABY by Gemma Bruce

Allison couldn't wait to get away for the Christmas Holidays, until she learns she'll be spending time with her sexy ex, Lee Simonson. Thanks to their interfering families, the two of them are snowed in at the ski lodge, and neither is too happy about it. It doesn't take long for the old sexual sparks to flare up, though, and things heat up at the lodge quickly! This is a romantic, sensual read for the holidays.

This was the first story I've read from Gemma Bruce, but I'm definitely anxious to read more!

BY FIRELIGHT by Janice Maynard

When a half-frozen Madison Tierney winds up on the doorstep of Grant Monroe's cabin, he doesn't expect the instant attraction he feels for her. Grant wants to take things slow and get to know Madison, but the sexual heat between the two of them is intense. When these two come together, things get HOT! Janice Maynard always delivers wonderful sensual stories, and this one is no exception.

All three stories are wonderful, sexy, and romantic. DON'T miss this one...it'll get you in the mood for some holiday snuggling for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Anthology that jingles! 28 Sep 2006
By Naliny D. Negron - Published on Amazon.com
Super sexy SWAT member, Osbourne Decker thinks that Marci Churchill, pet psychic, yea right' isn't that a little nutty? Has a couple of loose wires. The problem is he is also having the hardest time to keep his hands off of her! When a donkey disappears he can't help but wonder if Marci has anything to do with it, and that is when everything gets complicated. When they are in the same room the heat generated is enough to keep you warm on a cold winters night!

All that Lee Simonson and Allison Newberry have in common is that they broke up last Christmas. At least that what they both think, until they are tricked into going to a cabin in the middle of nowhere on a bad snowstorm. Turns out that they discover that their attraction is still there and pretty soon fate interferes with the magic of Christmas to give them a second chance.

When Madison Tierney makes plans with her friend to go hiking on Christmas she never though she will be spending her days with handsome, sexy Grant Monroe. When her friends leave and she decides to brave the weather, a bad storm lands her on his door. He takes one look at her and feel the magic of Christmas. This is a tender and lovely story that packs enough heat to light the fireplace!

Lori Foster, Gemma Bruce & Janice Maynard join their skills in an Anthology to give their readers a special gift. Three different stories, unique as their authors make this a fabulous Christmas Romance. There's a lot of ingredients that will make this stories the perfect companion during the holidays, they are funny sexy and so very hot! . This is another page turner you don't want to miss!

5.0 out of 5 stars Will Get you in the holiday mood.... 4 Oct 2006
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
A Very Merry Christmas has three tantalizing tales to steam up your holidays.

Lori Foster's Do You Hear What I Hear has macho SWAT team member Osbourne Decker asked to keep an eye on his friend's sister in law Marci Churchill. Normally that would be no problem but Marci is a little quirky and she gets under Osbourne skin like no other woman. Marci and Osbourne though they are different types of people enjoy and embrace those differences. It was a joy to watch these two fall in love, they have a chemistry that burns up each page.. It takes a special man to except Marci and her talents. Marci has the biggest heart to show Osbourne what true love is all about.

Bah Humbug Baby by Gemma Bruce has former lovers Allison Newberry and Lee Simonson tricked into spending the holidays together. At first they can't leave cause of a storm but once they decide to stay they go exploring the village. This place works magic on them and they realize that a love like theirs is rare. Though they fight their passion at first, its explosive when they give in.

Janice Maynard's story By Firelight tells the tale of strangers meeting during a winter storm. Grant Monroe and Maddy Tierney are majorly attracted to each other from the start. Watching them trying not to give in until they know each other better is as sweet as it is hot. Once they go give in you will need the ac back on to cool down.

A Very Merry Christmas is a perfect treat for the holiday season. Each story in this anthology will just move you and will get your blood pumping as well. I would highly recommend it.
