Christmas sucks!

Or at least that’s what Sheridan Lewis believes. With plans to hide away for the rest of the season, she’s dismayed to be sent on a trip so close to Christmas with her boss and arch nemesis, Brady McGuire. Not only does she have to suffer through the season, but work closely with a man who thinks he’s hot stuff because he’s the CEO’s grandson. So what if he has dreamy eyes, broad shoulders and a physique any Olympian would be jealous of, nothing good could possibly come out of their trip together.

Insufferable brat!

There’s nothing more that Brady McGuire wants to do than take Sheridan Lewis over his knee and give her the spanking she sorely deserves. She’s loud, obnoxious, and has a Napoleon complex. It’s bad enough dealing with her on a daily basis, but being through together for a two week trip where they’ll have to work closely together. No way. The last thing he wants is his holidays to be ruined by this little Scrooge. So what if her very scent drives him mad and she has a body made for sinning. She’s still a pain in the ass.

Thrown together during the holidays, these two headstrong idiots may just find their common ground in each other and turn their hell into a holiday after all.

“Midwinter Night’s Delights – A Hot Historical/Fantasy Romance” by Kelli A. Wilkins

Hi everyone,Midwinter cover

Today I’m highlighting the second book in my Naughty Nobles trilogy, Midwinter Night’s Delights. The series includes Midsummer Night’s Delights, Midwinter Night’s Delights, and Ultimate Night’s Delights. Although the books are connected, each stands alone as an individual read.

In a previous blog, I wrote about Midsummer Night’s Delights. This novella introduced readers to repressed newlyweds, Julian and Annabelle. They are strangers trapped in an arranged, sexless marriage. To loosen them up, Julian’s father sends them to the Marquis of Demby’s estate to attend a Midsummer Ball. (And this type of ball isn’t for dancing!)

The second book in the series, Midwinter Night’s Delights, picks up six months after the last story and follows the continuing sexual adventures of Annabelle and Julian. (And yes, this novella is just as hot—if not hotter— than the first one.)

In the sequel, we discover that Annabelle and Julian have taken what they’ve learned and gone wild. Ever since the Midsummer Ball, they have been overindulging in all sorts of lewd activities. Instead of being shy and repressed, they are more than eager to give in to their desires whenever (and wherever) the mood strikes—even if it’s at a formal dinner party. Needless to say, Julian’s father sends them back to Vincent’s estate to be disciplined and learn self-control.

Although they have been invited to the Midwinter Ball, there’s a catch. Before Sabrina and Vincent allow them to participate, they need to learn how to control their insatiable appetites and undergo certain “punishments” along the way.

So, how did this sequel come about? At the end of Midsummer, I left the door open to a follow-up story, hoping that readers would want more. And they did! Readers and reviewers were interested in learning more about the characters and seeing what other erotic escapades awaited them.

Some people wanted a prequel—a story devoted to how Sabrina and Vincent met and where they learned to play their wicked games. Others wanted a follow-up story to find out what happened to Annabelle and Julian and wondered if they would still play games with Vincent and Sabrina.

This story satisfies both camps. I let Sabrina explain her sexual history and how she became educated in playing naughty games. Julian and Annabelle learn about self-control as they become Vincent and Sabrina’s submissives and take their “punishments” in stride.

Midwinter Night’s Delights is more intense than the first book. From the outset, readers know that Julian and Annabelle are learning lessons and being disciplined—but it’s all for their own good. I even sprinkled in some BDSM throughout the story to make things very interesting.

And what about the third book? At the end of Midwinter, I saw the potential for another, final, chapter in the saga. I’ll share more about Ultimate Night’s Delights in another blog, so stay tuned.

Here’s the summary and a mild excerpt.

Midwinter Night’s Delights

Julian and Annabelle are back for another naughty ball!

The Marquis of Demby’s Midsummer Ball transformed Julian and Annabelle forever. No longer shy about satisfying their sexual urges, the young newlyweds give in to their wanton desires whenever—and wherever—the mood strikes. Anything goes in their open marriage, and they’re not ashamed to share their passions with others.

But everything changes when they are sent to Vincent and Sabrina’s estate to be disciplined. Before they can participate in the Midwinter Ball, they must learn self-control. Carnal punishments and sensual lessons are just a few of the erotic surprises awaiting them… before the ball even begins!

A mild excerpt:

Annabelle clutched her dressing gown around her and stared at Lobo—or was it Lono?—standing at the foot of one bed. He wore a dark blue mask that covered his eyes and nose, but left his mouth and jaw exposed. She glanced from his barrel-like chest to his crotch and was relieved to see that he wore black breeches. How long would he keep them on?

“Strip and lie on a bed, facedown,” Vincent ordered.

She swallowed hard. What would Vincent order these beasts to do to them now?

Julian stepped past her and took the bed closest to the window.

“Go ahead, big boy,” he said, tossing his dressing gown on a nearby chair as he lay down.

Annabelle disrobed and climbed onto the other bed. The bedclothes were folded down, exposing clean white sheets. Her heart hammered out of control as she felt the feather mattress sink under Lobo’s weight.

She closed her eyes and breathed in deep. The sheets smelled like roses; but the sweet fragrance did nothing to calm her as Lobo placed his legs on either side of her buttocks.

She flinched as warm, wide palms caressed her back and shoulders. Lobo’s strong hands squeezed the stiff muscles between her neck and shoulders, working the tension out of her body.

“See, it’s not so bad, is it?” Vincent asked from behind her.

“No, it feels good,” she replied.

Lobo gripped her tightly, then rubbed her skin, releasing the pent-up anxiety she had carried all day. Before she realized it, his hands were halfway down her ribs and lower back. After being treated roughly all afternoon, this felt wonderful.

Lobo adjusted his weight over her and moved down on the bed. He stroked her buttocks, making her flinch.

“Easy,” he whispered. He worked her buttocks, tenderly fondling the underside of each one.

“Oh, that’s nice,” she murmured.

Lobo gave her buttocks an extra squeeze and glided his palms down the back of her thighs. He parted her legs slightly, then began massaging her tender inner thighs.

She let herself sink deeper into the feather mattress. The fireplace made the room so warm, and it had been an exhausting day…

“How to be a good friend: Right things to do if someone is sad (“Emotion of sadness” Bedtimes Story Children’s Picture Book Book 1)” by Betty Neal

Good Friend cover

How to be a good friend: Right things to do if someone is sad (“Emotion of sadness” Bedtimes Story Children’s Picture Book Bk1)

by Betty Neal

Genre: Children/Emotions & Feelings/Fairy Tales, Folk Tales & Myths/Dragons

FREE at time of posting! Kindle Unlimited!

Purpose of the book
Often children from 0 to 5 years do not think that other people also have feelings. Because of this, they may not notice that someone is sad. And even if they do notice, they often do not know how to react to it.

I wrote this book in order to arouse sympathy in a child. Reading the book, the child empathizes with the protagonist. The book causes specific emotions in a child. And when a child experiences these emotions, it gets easier to teach him something important.

The main results of the book.
When you read this book with your children, they will learn to:
– distinguish the basic emotions of sadness and joy
– support a friend in a difficult situation
– use the right words and phrases to support a friend in real life
– do not leave a friend in need, and pay attention to the fact that someone is sad
– be a true friend

This story will help the child to build relationships with parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents, and other relatives and friends.

Features of the book:
– The main characters of the book: Dragon Debbie – the favorite character of all children, and the boy Elvis – the guy who supported Dragon Debbie at a difficult moment
– stunning illustration on every page that immerse the child in the story
– illustrations perfectly convey the emotions of the characters, and this helps the child to feel what the heroes of the book feel.
– at the end of the book, there is a moral – what the child will endure after reading the book
– the book is written by a professional psychologist with 10 years of experience working with children
