A Very Scandulous Holiday CoverDescription

Entangled Publishing presents…A Very Scandalous Holiday Anthology. Four very spirited vignettes of holidays past.

Erin’s Gift by Nancy Fraser Chicago 1920 Widower, Seth Harrison, has no intention of falling in love again but will he be able to resist the sweetness of his son’s nanny, Erin O’Mara—his sister’s best friend?

  An Eternity of You by Sophia Garrett England 1833 The Duke of Sharrington left Rebecca with more than a broken heart six years ago—he left her with a son. His return rekindles their passion, but only a Christmas miracle will convince the town surgeon to believe in his promises of eternity again.

  Letters at Christmas by Amber Lin England, late Regency After three years at sea, Captain Hale Prescott has the means to marry the love of his life and his best friend’s sister, Sidony Harbeck. However, she might never speak to him again. Despite their whispered adolescent promises, he never wrote her a single letter…at least, none he ever sent.

Eight Tiny Flames by Crista McHugh 1944 Ardennes, WWII Lt. Ruth Mencher has always secretly admired Capt. Joseph Klein, but it takes the lighting of a Hanukkah candle to uncover the spark of mutual attraction. Each night awakens a new facet of their relationship, but as the Battle of the Bulge begins, the approaching Nazi forces threaten to tear them apart.  

My Review:

I sat and read this book in one sitting. All four stories are very engaging, with wonderful characters that are well very thought out. The story lines are all interesting and different from each other. I found it refreshing that I didn't feel like I was reading a different version of the same story four times over.

In Letters For Christmas you will find a story of a young love that has been put on hold. There are misunderstandings keeping the young lovers from being together. Will Sidony forgive Hale when he gives her an unexpected Christmas gift? Will the young lovers finally marry, or will the misunderstanding always come between them? I really enjoyed this story. I love the imagery of sleigh rides in the snow and all the romance that can come with the Regency period. I found myself really hoping that the misunderstanding could be resolved and they could live happily ever after.

In Eight Tiny Flames you will find a Hanukkah celebration in a setting that would seem ill fitted for any kind of celebration. The romance quickly kindles between the two main characters and gets pretty steamy. You will find yourself eager to see what will happen when the Nazis start closing in! I love that  this story shows you that no matter where you are or what you are doing, love can appear in a blink of an eye.

In Erin's Gift a lawyer finds himself attracted to his son's nanny. She is his sister's best friend whom he met when his sister took her to a speakeasy and got her arrested. Now that is an interesting way to meat the woman of your dreams!

An Eternity of You is probably my favorite of the four stories. I really enjoyed how the Duke reacted to everything that was happening around him. The doctor is obviously a strong female in a time when females weren't considered equal. There were many elements to this story that makes it memorable, but the lovers finding each other and falling back into each others arms after years apart is my favorite.

This is a very steamy read, so you should be sure to have a cooling beverage and maybe a fan at hand! I recommend this to any reader that loves romances, steamy sex scenes, and historical settings.

About The Authors

Nancy Fraser Author (Holiday)  Nancy Fraser Like most authors, Nancy began writing at an early age, usually on the walls and with crayons or, heaven forbid, permanent markers. Her love of writing often made her the English teacher's pet which, of course, resulted in a whole lot of teasing. Still, it was worth it. In her time away from writing, Nancy dotes on her five grandchildren. She's currently happily single (let's face it, it's difficult to find a man who can live up to her sexy, fictitious heroes) and enjoying life as is for the time being.

Sophia Garrett (Holiday)  Sophia Garrett  

Sophia Garrett always knew she wanted to be a writer, and more specifically, a historical romance writer. Her teenage years were spent rabidly gobbling up the newest books from romance icons such as Johanna Lindsey, Sabrina Jefferies, Julie Garwood, and Kathleen E. Woodiweiss. She composed her first romance novel about the American Revolution, in high school. When Sophia is not researching...well, she's always researching! But in her non-working hours she enjoys studying historical events (yes, she's one of those girls), watching documentaries, taking in action-packed dramas at the theatre, and spending as much time as possible with her two young sons collecting bugs, racing Hot Wheels, and smashing things in video games. Her second passion is animals, so much so that at one time she considered a career in veterinary medicine. Chemistry, however, waged war on her sanity, and she decided training horses was far less harmful than trying to manipulate miniscule objects that can't be seen. Setting her sweatshirt on fire in lab might have had something to do with that. She still has her horses but has added a chicken...or two. And a duck. And a (house) pig. And several dogs. And cats. And... who knows what might turn up next! Sophia frequently attends conferences and signing events that take her throughout the United States. In addition, she often presents for her local Romance Writers of America chapters and is available to present to additional authors' groups. She loves to connect with readers and writers alike, so be sure to say hello!   Professional Affiliations:   Romance Writers of America Heartland Romance AuthorsMidwest Romance Writers

Amber Lin (Holiday)     AMBER LIN

Amber Lin writes erotic romance with damaged souls and deep emotion. Her debut novel Giving It Up (Loose Id, 9781611188431) received The Romance Review’s Top Pick, Night Owl Top Pick, and 5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies. RT Book Reviews gave it 4.5 stars, calling it “truly extraordinary.” The sequel is slated for release in early 2013. Her small town romance will be published by Carina Press in Fall 2013. Amber married her high school sweetheart, birthed a kid who’s smarter than she is, and spends her nights writing down her dirty thoughts. In other words, life is good

Crista McHugh (Holiday)  CRISTA McHUGH  

Crista McHugh is a multiple award-winning author of fantasy romance and paranormal romance with heroines who are smart, sexy, and anything but ordinary. Growing up in small town Alabama, Crista relied on story-telling as a natural way for her to pass the time and keep her two younger sisters entertained. She currently lives in the Audi-filled suburbs of Seattle with her husband and two children, maintaining her alter ego of mild-mannered physician by day while she continues to pursue writing on nights and weekends. Just for laughs, here are some of the jobs she's had in the past to pay the bills: barista, bartender, sommelier, stagehand, actress, morgue attendant, and autopsy assistant. And she's also a recovering LARPer.

  1. In my mind, love during the holidays just means family and/or friends being together, celebrating. It is the look on the children's faces when they see the holiday gifts and decorations.
