Thank you so much for hosting me for the GRL Blog tour.

Today I have brought a COVER REVEAL!!!

Yes, I finally have news about the fifth installment of THE NAUGHTY NORTH POLE series from Decadent Publishing. If you are unfamiliar with my series, let me invite you to a North Pole like none you have ever read about before.

For starters, Santa and Ms. Claus are twins–don’t know how we humans messed up that detail, but it is what it is. As half-human descendant of Odin, they are every bit as gorgeous as you would expect a demi-god to be. And every year Ms. Claus, Frieda, hostas a HUGE party with all of the elves. And believe me, these elves are one horny lot! And they don’t have any inhibitions! To an elf in THE NAUGHTY NORTH POLE sex is as important as cookies!

And before you get the heebie-jeebies, the elves in THE NAUGHTY NORTH POLE are not the cutsie little guys you see at Macy’s. These Nordic elves, the Dark and the Light, are HAWT! The Light Elves are lean, fair-haired with hairless, sexy bods for you twink lovers out there And the Dark elves, well, they are big, hairy and dark. Yummy!

Like the hero of my latest book EVERYBODY HATES FRUITCAKE. Ivan is a reindeer handler who recently moved to the North Pole and while he isn’t having any trouble getting laid, that’s because he has a secret.

Oh wait! Lemme fill you in first!


LOL, that’s right, and if you can guess the reason for the title of my latest NAUGHTY NORTH POLE book, Ivan has fruitcake flavored cum!

Poor Ivan is afraid if he lets out his secret, he won’t ever get laid again. Worse, he fears the guy he likes the most will be disgusted.

But, have no fear. This is THE NAUGHTY NORTH POLE!

Everyone gets a happily ever after!  And here is the cover…

Everybody Hates Fruitcake


Once I finished with the stalls and made sure all the reindeer were tucked in for the night, I headed for the exit, the soft bed in my apartment calling my name. On the way, I found my co-worker Adam still polishing harnesses. I could tell they belonged to the second team, but they still had to be perfect, just in case.

“Hey, Ivan,” he said, barely glancing up.

I hadn’t expected anyone besides me to still be working at this hour. “Need any help?” I offered.

The ruddy Dark Elf pointed at the jar beside him. “Actually, I’m almost out of wax. Would you mind?”

“Coming right up.” I headed for the closest supply room.

I loved the earthy musk in the barn, the scent of animals, feed, and leather. I still couldn’t believe I had been lucky enough to get this job. Rounding the bend into the small alcove at the back of the barn, I drew up short when I heard a grunting sound.

Then I heard a voice.

“I missed you so bad. I couldn’t wait to get here.”

Knowing Lars must be with him and unable to deny my curiosity, I peeked around the corner and into the supply room.

The Light Elf had the much bigger Rudy up against the wall, arms pinned over his head as he nibbled on his neck. Coats on the floor and shirts undone, their naked chests were pressed tight, and Lars had one lean thigh tucked between Rudy’s. The wanton look of submission Rudy wore and Lars’s dominance surprised me somewhat.

“I’m going to tie you to my bed and fuck you till you can’t walk,” Lars whispered, sending a shimmer of arousal up my spine.

Rudy let out a breathless laugh, his brown eyes locked on his lover’s face. “Yeah, but you did that last time. I thought you didn’t like repeats?”

“Shut up and kiss me, would ya?” Lars kissed him quiet and made the other elf moan.

My cock started getting a little twitchy, so I reached down to adjust it in my trousers. Watching them intertwined in a passionate kiss aroused me, but it made me jealous, too. Sure sex with guys like Kenny was fun, but when it ended it was, well? Over. Lars might not want to label his relationship with Rudy, but it was plain to see they were in love, not just lust.

I wanted that, too, but I didn’t know if it would ever happen.

Unbidden, my mind conjured Jimmy. I could all but feel the two of us twined together in desire. Me pressing his petite body up against a wall in the barn, kissing him. Tasting him. Making him taste me….

If I wanted more with Jimmy, then why did I keep turning him down? Was I overthinking it all? As much as I wanted to believe I could find love with someone, I was too embarrassed to share my secret.

What if Jimmy hated fruitcake like everybody else?

“Are you going to stand there and watch us, or do you want to join in?” Lars asked, shocking me back into the now. “Because Rudy here is in serious need of a good cock sucking.”

“Or a rimming?” Rudy suggested in a whisper. Arms still pinned above his head, the big man looked almost docile, his gaze hopeful and begging.

“Really? That’s what you want?” Lars asked him in a normal voice. “Okay, I can do that. Or Ivan can.” He looked back at me, his long hair moving seductively over his shoulder. “You in, Dark Elf?”

My face flamed. “Um, no, sorry. I just needed wax.”

“You sure?”

“Or you could stay and watch,” Rudy offered.

“I like how you think, babe.” Lars gave his lover a congratulatory grin.

Cheeks redder than Santa’s suit, I stepped into the room. Not embarrassed in the least, the two elves watched me grab the jar. “Sorry, didn’t mean to interrupt. Carry on.” Then I scooted out the door, the soft echo of their laughter dancing behind me.

Adjusting my semi-hard prick, I shook my head, laughing at the bizarre situation. When I rejoined Adam, he noticed my flustered expression.

“What?” he said suspiciously, holding his hand out for the wax.

“You’ll never guess what I just walked in on,” I whispered, looking over my shoulder. “Lars and Rudy are doing it in the supply room.”

“No way!” Adam cried, laughing. “Did you watch?”

I made a “duh” face. “A little bit, until they caught me and asked me to join them.”

Sniffing with amusement, Adam returned to polishing the leather of the reindeer harness. “Those two are such freaks. I heard they shared three guys the last time Rudy came into town.”

I pretended to laugh along, thinking, however, that Lars and Rudy could keep their threesomes and kinky group sex.

All I wanted was one man to love me.


Everybody Hates FruitcakeIvan has the bad luck to be the only elf at the naughty North Pole with fruitcake-flavored cum—and he’s not telling anyone. When fellow elf Jimmy hits on him, Ivan fears revealing his secret and losing a chance to have a real relationship with the sexy elf.

After all, everybody hates fruitcake!

Danni’s wife Sheila is the Head Chef at the North Pole. Unfortunately, while Sheila hunts for the perfect recipe for fruitcake, she neglects her wifely duties. So when Ivan tells Danni about his dilemma, she devises a plan to solve both of their problems.

Can these two girls help Ivan realize he is perfect just the way he is? Will Danni’s wife perfect her fruitcake recipe with Ivan’s special ingredient? But most importantly, will Ivan have the courage to take Jimmy up on his offer?


Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.
