'Twas a Dark and Delicious Christmas

From the keeper of Santa’s naughty list, delightful little Elves eager to please, and the sensual love of a toy soldier—the holidays are filled with orgasmic cheer. Where wishes come true, Frosty is itching for a melt-down, fairies and angels are randy to grant your every wish, ‘tis the season to be oh, so jolly-filled.

Unwrap your darkest desires…for this is Christmas, and it will never be the same.

I was planning on doing a general review of the book as a whole but I decided to do a mini review of each tale.

Santas's Naughty List by Stacey Espino
I admit it was a bit weird to read an erotic story starring Santa but it was hot. And don't worry, Santa's not the sex interest.

My Boys by Amarinda Jones
More elves here as well as angels. A worrying thought for me was that this story, as well as the above, had a female lead who got very turned on by intruders. I hope it's not a trend! Fun sex scenes though. *fans self* Very fun.

A Christmas Curse by Ericka Scott
As good as the previous two stories were, I was glad to finally read one that had a proper story attached to it. Otherwise I feel like I'm just reading porn!

The Little Red Ribbon by A.D. Blackburn
Nice story and a likeable male lead. Although, again, I felt like I was just reading porn.

Once Upon a Christmas Spanking by Rachel Clark
A very enjoyable BDSM based tale. Focusing on how a couple can be together and not let each other know what they want in the bedroom.

Yes Alana, There is a Santa Claus by Seleste deLaney
Nice story with a likeable leading lady. My only problem with this story is that I know the author personally, and consider her a friend (even if we live in different countries) so I couldn't help but picture her in the lead role. Which isn't a bad thing! Don't get me wrong, Sel's hawt as fuck but it's just weird picturing your friend having sex!

Carly's Delights by Lauren Pilla
What a kewl take on elves. Very cute story ~ well, cute and sexy ;)

Kingdom of Sweets by Gigi Brevard
A bit of a weird take on Nutcrackers, I'll never look at one the same way again.

Holly's Clause by Kerri Nelson
A demonic twist on a slightly porn-ish storyline. I do not mean that in a bad way but in a delivery man "I have a big package for you" way.

Hard for the Holidays by Skylar Sinclair
A few spelling errors in this one, instant turn off for a reader like me. Not too sure how I feel about an erotic story about Santa! It all seemed so .... wrong, lol.

The Christmas Fae by Emma Shortt
A sweet story about the cutest sounding fairy ever. I had the hugest crush on her after reading this one.

Jack Frost by Misty Burke
A hot little take on Jack Frost.

A Christmas Wish for Laura by Shannan Albright
Another nice (and sexy) take on Jack Frost

So all in all 'Twas a Dark and Delicious Christmas is the perfect book for making you hot on those cold winter nights. There's a bit of something for everyone in here ranging from oooh-hooo-mamma sex to grab-the-headboard sex.

Just became available in print form today as well, direct from Evernight Publishing.

Amazon UK: 'Twas a Dark and Delicious Christmas


  1. What a great, detailed review! And about imagining Seleste as the heroine, I bet that happens a lot to friends of romance authors:)

  2. Oh geez, a nutcracker erotica? !? That maybe makes me a bit nervous. Otherwise, this collection looks pretty good!

  3. Thanks for the detailed review. Glad you liked A Christmas Curse!

  4. I want this book but I'm on a book-buying fast. :( I liked the mini review of each one, that was a wonderful idea. Your comments re Sel made me laugh. I wonder how I'll react when I read it. :P

  5. Thanks for such a lovely review :-)

  6. Thanks for a great review!

  7. Oh break the fast Bea... you know you want to!
