Christmas at the Firehouse ~ A Bachelor Firemen Short Story

 Christmas at the Firehouse   A Bachelor Firemen Short Story Photo courtesy of Bill Bailey, The Calhoun Chronicle The sexy, smoldering “Bachelor Firemen” of San Gabriel were usually seen in turnouts, SGFD t-shirts, or without any shirts at all. But on a day shortly before Christmas, Station 1 was awash with Santa gear as the firefighters competed for a role only one could play. “Why shouldn’t a woman be Santa? We’ve never had a female Santa.” Sabina Jones wore a Santa hat that kept falling over one eye, probably because it belonged to her husband, Chief Roman, who had the build of a gladiator. “Only one person here has the belly to be Santa.” Double D patted his stomach, which always grew a few inches around the holidays, what with all the baked goods the citizens of San Gabriel kept dropping off at the firehouse. “Santa Claus isn’t about the...

Sinful Rewards And Dating Naked

One of my guilty pleasures is watching episodes of Dating Naked. Dating Naked is exactly what it sounds like—the participants go on blind dates while completely naked. The premise is that when people bare their bodies, they bare themselves. This is similar to one of the premises of Sinful Rewards. When Bee first looks at Hawke, he’s standing on his balcony, completely naked. He has tattoos and scars. She reads his past on his skin. He’s open about who he is and what he wants. In contrast, both Bee and Nicolas are very careful about who sees their bare bodies and who sees their true selves. They keep secrets, hiding under layers of clothing. Thanks to Friendly, the mysterious texter, Bee engages in more and more daring displays of exhibitionism, revealing her body and her true self. Nicolas doesn’t reveal his body until Sinful Rewards 6, when he showers at...

Unwrapping a Review of SWEET COWBOY CHRISTMAS, a Sweet Texas novella by Candis Terry

The Sweet, Texas Series by Candis Terry is one of my favorites and one of the things I enjoy most about her Sweet characters is their complicated stories, which draw us in deep and endear them to us. So when Candis released a novella, featuring characters other than members of the Wilder family, I approached reading it with some hesitation. Would it be as good as the full-lengths? Oh. My. Yes! ***purchased for my own personal reading and am sharing my honest and unscripted review. Blurb for SWEET COWBOY CHRISTMAS: Mistletoe, holly, and cowboys, oh my! Christmas in Texas has never been sweeter. Years ago, Chase Morgan traded in his dusty cowboy boots for the shimmering lights of New York City and a fast track up the corporate ladder. But when his shiny life is turned on end just in time for Christmas, Chase knows he needs to re-evaluate even...
