Merry Mistletoe Blog Hop - Hot Guys, Hot Stories, Hot Deals! #MistletoeHop

Welcome to the Merry Mistletoe Hop, I'm thrilled that you're here. If you're looking for holiday reads full of snow, sex, roaring fires and raunchy couples you've come to the right place!

My first offering is a bargain novel titled Cold Nights, Hot Bodies. At only 66c/37p from Amazon, 99c from Ellora's Cave this first-time tale featuring gorgeous Shane Galloway, a beautiful hotel in the Cotswolds and a virgin with some seriously sexy novels on her shelf should be just the thing to get you racing for that mistletoe!

Back cover blurb...

All my life I’ve been the quiet bookworm, the office mouse. It hasn’t bothered me. Immersing myself in erotic novels has kept me wriggling on the edge of my seat at work and firmly entrenched in my own fantasy world at night.

Though one thing is bothering me—my damn virginity. If only I could find a sexy bedroom expert to introduce me to the delights of having a lover. Someone handsome and charming, who can rival the hunky alpha males in my books. I have a very vivid, very well-fed imagination—he’ll have to keep up.

Then, one bitterly cold night, thanks to a devious, conniving, so-called friend, the perfect opportunity to rid myself of this pesky virginity problem comes along. Before I know it, the heroes in my novels have come alive in the person of Shane Galloway, who’s pleasuring me with every trick in the book and wheedling into my heart in the hottest ways possible.

Buy at the discounted price from Amazon Amazon UK Ellora's Cave or click for more options - please note, this book is only on sale until the 5th of January!

Reader Reviews for Cold Nights, Hot Bodies

"I have read a good number of Lily Harlem books, but this might be my favorite. Sure, the cover is worth the price of admission alone (although I suppose there's nothing preventing you from staring at him on Amazon all day long). But I digress. Lily Harlem's characters are always fun and the sex is always white-hot, but I would say she amped things up in this one. I could totally identify with Ashley's reluctance to come out of her shell and how much she was rewarded when she finally did. Shane is super sexy, but has a heart of gold. I liked him from his first appearance on the page. The story pulled me in and didn't let go as it became apparent that their connection was not only instantaneous and physical, but deeper and quite emotional. Both characters risk their heart and I loved them for it. The ending is wholly satisfying. You won't be disappointed!"

"This was a great book that really showed two characters that had amazing chemistry and how the author was able to tweak them in just a way as to make the story different from all the others on the market today. The story of Shane and Ashley was great, not only in that it was very believable but that the story flowed so well that it didn't even feel like reading to me. When the final page came I was sad to see it end, but also anxious to see what other works Lily Harlem had up her sleeve. If you are looking for a cute read with lots of great sex and a HEA than this is the book for you!"

"If every girl's first time had a Shane in it, the world of womanhood would be a better place! This book is steamy and will leave you looking for a steamy scene of your own. I look forward to other books from this author."

My next sexy seasonal offering is a novella from Totally Bound and was the first story over 10k words that I ever had published. Candy Canes and Coal Dust is a steamy menage a quatre story set in Finland. If four in a bed is your thing, then this might be just the ticket to get your pulse racing.

A Finnish skiing holiday is the perfect winter wonderland for Bridget to escape her ex at Christmas time - beautifully decked trees, roaring log fires and plenty of mulled wine. What she doesn't count on, however, is a very erotic, very dirty dream on the plane from London to Levi - three perfect lovers all indulging her every whim and desire, how could she not moan and groan and beg for more?

But every dream must end, and as Bridget wakes, with toe curling embarrassment, she realises every passenger on the plane has heard her frantic orgasm…including the gorgeous Irish guy sitting to her left!
