All I Want

Shy retail clerk Elliott Gaffney’s Christmas wish isn’t something Santa can grant him, but that doesn’t stop it from being his favorite time of year. Especially since he gets to work at Chicago’s prestigious Ashby’s department store in “the North Pole,” doing his part to make the magic of Christmas come alive for others.

All Bennett “Ash” Ashby wants for Christmas is to forget about it. Unfortunately, his father is forcing him to pay penance for the media frenzy caused by his latest public sex scandal. The Ashby heir, working as a lowly department store Santa? Only the fact that no one will know it’s really him can save Ash the embarrassment of being stuck in a fat suit instead of partying with his friends.

But when Elliott catches Ash’s eye, Christmas starts to look a whole lot brighter. And even though Elliott would never have the guts to say yes if he knew who Ash really was, falling for “Ben,” the new Santa, is another story all together…

Okay, so this is one of the books that I’ve read before – and adored! I loved the inclusion of a department store in this book, because it makes it feel like it’s one of those old time Christmas movies. Ash and Elliott are so adorable together, too!

 

Gingerbread

Alex MacElhaney doesn’t know what to do with children. He’s more than satisfied with his two English Setters, Molly and Duke, and his fledgling bakery business. But when an emergency with his sister in law’s family leaves him in charge of his two nephews in the weeks leading up to Christmas, Alex buckles in for a crash course in parenting.

Police officer Kellen Walker’s deepest wish is to have a husband and children. The happy families he sees all around him at Christmastime leave him feeling cold and alone. He’ll never have that – coming out as gay would break his ailing father’s heart. The only thing he can do to combat his loneliness is to throw himself even further into his work, burying his needs in service to others.

When Kellen investigates a break in at Alex’s bakery, he comes face to face with the one man who almost tempted him into defying his father and coming out – but that’s in the past. Kellen resolves to do his job and be the friend that Alex wanted all along. But when Alex suggests a Christmas fling, can they both love the other without their hearts getting attached?

A Family for Christmas

Riley is an alpha with a problem: his family. Coming home for Christmas means more comparisons to his older brother Ethan, more disapproval from his parents, and more insinuations that it’s high time he settled down with an “appropriate” omega—one his parents choose for him, of course.

Protective, kind, supportive: Riley is everything Chris’s baby daddy isn’t. For the first time, Chris starts to envision a real family and a future full of love for him and his child… with Riley, not with Ethan. But when his head says one thing and his heart another, which one should he follow?
