    After catching her boyfriend cheating two weeks before Christmas, Brinn is seriously lacking in holiday spirit. So when she looks into the eyes of a last-minute shopper after closing on Christmas Eve, she’s sarcastic rather than sympathetic. But Brinn is ever the good girl and her conscience wins out. She offers the handsome stranger ten minutes to select a gift and ends up with a present of her own—a date. On Christmas Eve.

    Davis hates Christmas. Especially this year, since a neighborhood heist liberated him of his hard-earned belongings and the few gifts he’d purchased. But the robbery led him to a cute store manager with a sense of humor, smokin’ body and no plans for the evening. Mistletoe might be in order after all.

    Their Christmas Eve date is like gift-wrapped, sexy satisfaction. But the best gifts keep on giving, and one naughty night may not be enough—for either of them.

    Sunday Snippet—GIFT WRAPPED—Good Girl

    This week’s Sunday snippet is a continuation of the kitchen scene from GIFT WRAPPED. In the excerpt a couple of weeks ago, Davis told Brinn what he’d do to her (and the pudding they’re making) if she continued undressing him. Last week the clothes came off. And here’s eight sentences of what happens next…

    Gift Wrapped book cover“Are you really a good girl, Brinn—I need to know.”

    “Yes, I’m a good girl,” she said, her legs shaking and heart racing.

    He leaned over her back, molding his body tightly to hers. “Do you like being a good girl?”

    His warm breath on her neck made her shiver. Or maybe it was the question, so loaded with naughty promises.

    “No,” she whispered, “I don’t like it.”

    “Then I’m going to fuck the good girl right out of you tonight.”

    Sunday Snippet—GIFT WRAPPED—Gift Exchange

    Thanks for stopping in to read the Sunday snippet, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. This week’s morsel from GIFT WRAPPED follows hot (and I do mean hot) on the heels of last week’s offering.

    Gift Wrapped book coverA deep growl rumbled near her ear, then Davis’s hands were everywhere, stripping away her clothes with a combination of efficiency and impatience. “Jesus, you’re sexy.” His gaze moved over her naked body. “Merry Christmas to me.”

    “My turn to unwrap a present,” she said, reaching for the bottom of his shirt and tugging it upward.

    He helped, peeling the fabric away and tossing it onto the growing pile of castoffs. His jeans followed—then boxers and socks, leaving him head-to-toe naked and hard all over.

    “I’ve obviously been a very good girl this year, to get a present this size,” she said, taking his cock in hand.

    Sunday Snippet—GIFT WRAPPED—Slippery

    It’s time for another Sunday snippet from GIFT WRAPPED. You can catch up on previous snippets here. This week, I jumped ahead several pages. Davis has been attempting to teach Brinn how to make pudding from scratch in his kitchen, but I’m not so sure they’re ever going to get it finished…

    Gift Wrapped book coverHe stopped her before she popped his button. “I want you. A hell of a lot. But you touch me now and I’m done with self-control. I’ll bend you over this counter and slide your sexy body through half-made pudding while I fuck you.” The scenario had come out of nowhere, but damn.

    Brinn blinked up at him—once, twice—then tugged his button open.

    Things were about to get slippery.

    Sunday Snippet – GIFT WRAPPED – Cooking Lesson

    Welcome back for another Sunday snippet from GIFT WRAPPED. This little morsel follows very close after last week’s bite. Brinn and Davis are on their spontaneous first date—they’re in his kitchen, where Davis is attempting to teach Brinn how to make homemade pudding. Enjoy!
    (Then head over to the Weekend Writing Warriors site for the full list of this week’s participants.)

    Gift Wrapped book cover“Measuring cups and spoons are in the drawer beside the fridge; so’s the big whisk, a wooden spoon and a rubber spatula.”

    “Is the wooden spoon for stirring, or for punishment when I screw up your fancy pudding?”

    And he’d just mentally added another item to his do-to-Brinn list. He delivered a firm smack to her sexy ass as an interim measure. “Now I’m half tempted to lead you astray during your lesson.”

    “Only half?”

    He groaned when she snuck her hand down the front of his jeans and curled her fingers around his cock. “Sixty percent—and rapidly rising.”

    Sunday Snippet – GIFT WRAPPED – Timing and Execution

    Welcome, it’s Sunday snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. We’re still with Davis and Brinn on their spontaneous date, following their initial meeting after hours at the mall where Brinn works. They’ve just finished the delicious meal Davis (a professional chef) cooked, after which Brinn admits to a chronic lack of luck in the food-preparation department.

    Gift Wrapped book cover“Ah,” he winked, “you burn stuff.”

    I don’t burn anything, I just haven’t met the oven of my dreams yet.”

    Dimples, he had them. Not a feature she usually cared for on a man—too boyish. On Davis, they didn’t look the least bit juvenile—in fact, they were panty-melting hot.

    He leaned forward and curled his hand over her leg, very high on her thigh. “Cooking is like sex. You don’t have to have the best equipment to get great results—it’s all about timing and execution.”

    In today’s little bite, we’re with Brinn at Davis’s house. They’re in his kitchen, waiting for the dinner he prepared to finish cooking…

    Gift Wrapped book cover“Want a full tour of the house while we wait for the chicken to finish up?”

    “How much time do we have?” More fluttering in her belly — this time, from straight-up anticipation about getting naked in one of those rooms down the hall. Might as well go big since she wasn’t going home. She joined him by the stove, slid her palms over the hard wall of abs covered by a snug black t-shirt, then around his waist to his very squeezable butt.

    Hint taken. He copied her move—the last part, anyway—and pulled her tight against his body. Either he had a flashlight in his front pocket or he was equally eager to move things down the hall.

    “Okay.” Minty breath tickled his nose. She caressed every inch of his head, leaning into him until her tits mashed against his chest. “I didn’t expect it to be this soft.”

    “Not what a guy wants to hear when a beautiful woman has her hands on him.” The vibrations from her giggle shot straight to his groin. “Believe me, babe, not everything’s soft.”

    Sunday Snippet – GIFT WRAPPED – Stamina

    It’s Sunday snippet time, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. I’m posting from my new Christmas romance, GIFT WRAPPED. If you haven’t been following along, you can catch up here.

    Brinn is a recently jilted retail store manager who allowed a handsome shopper into her store at closing time on Christmas Eve to buy “one more gift, it’s kind of an emergency”. After some spark-filled banter, they’ve wrapped up the transaction, and Davis has left the store, but he stopped before he got six feet into the empty mall corridor…

    Gift Wrapped book cover“Did you forget something?” she asked, doing her best to sound like a store manager, not president of the local lonely-hearts club.

    “I know it’s Christmas Eve, but do you want to do something tonight?”

    “What about Alicia, don’t you have plans with her?”

    “Yeah, but that’ll only take five minutes.”

    “Ouch—is improving your stamina on your list of New Year’s resolutions?”

    His gut-deep laugh echoed through the empty mall corridor. Then, alpha as hell, he stalked back to the door. “I don’t do resolutions, but if I did, improving my stamina wouldn’t need to be one of them.”

    Sunday Snippet – GIFT WRAPPED – Curvy

    Time for another Sunday snippet from GIFT WRAPPED, my holiday romance, part of the Weekend Writing Warriors meme. This little bite follows immediately after last week’s excerpt. Store manager Brinn has let a handsome shopper into her store after closing on Christmas Eve, to find “one more gift…it’s kind of an emergency”.

    Gift Wrapped book cover“So, give me the specs on this not-a-wife, not-a-girlfriend, who doesn’t wear perfume.”

    His hands disappeared into the front pockets of his jeans, taking her mind along with them. “I’d say Alicia’s about your height and build, but younger, and less…curvy.”

    “And on that note, guess I’ll start my New Year’s diet a week early and pray that Santa brings me some anti-aging cream.” When he dared to chuckle, Brinn pulled a pair of black, size-small pants and a soft, white hoodie from the rack and stabbed them at him. “How about this set—it looks fantastic on trim, younger women.”

    “Do you like it?” he asked, not even bothering to look at the stuff, just keeping his gaze on her.

    “I do—I have the same ones at home…slightly stretched out from my curviness.”
