by Kimberly Kaye Terry, Pamela Yaye, Farrah Rochon

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Anthology, Multicultural
Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

Terry’s tale has more heat than usual, and the added sensuality makes her story a page-turner. The plot is predictable, but the sexuality is enough to entice the average reader. Yaye’s storyline is predictable as well; nothing about it is extraordinary and the characters are one-dimensional. The ending to Rochon’s story feels unfinished, but the emotion attributed to the main characters is palpable.

In Terry’s “‘Twas the Season,” Nikki Danes has set her sights on Max Hardaway, her tall, green-eyed co-worker. Nikki, a hardworking grad student, is only looking for someone to scratch an itch, but Max may give her more than she bargained for.
In Yaye’s “Mistletoe in Memphis,” TV chef Essence Sinclair has landed a dream job: catering holiday parties for wealthy tycoon Lincoln Davenport. Essence hopes the exposure will save her floundering business; she doesn’t count on falling for her boss, a man who runs hot and cold in his emotions.
Rochon’s “Second-Chance Christmas” reunites Ayana Taylor and Jackson Richards after a decade apart. Jackson got married weeks after taking Ayana’s virginity, and she vowed to never see or speak to him again. But when the two get snowed in together during her brother’s wedding weekend, they have no choice but to clear the air and see if there is hope for them to try again.
