Today I am so pleased to welcome Erin McLellan to Joyfully Jay. Erin has come to talk to us about her latest release, Stocking Stuffers. It is a holiday novella featuring a bisexual heroine who hates the holidays but loves kink, a flannel wearing Romance reader, and a super queer book club all snowed in at an inn! Erin has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
She quietly unzipped her red bag and pulled out a box. There was a bright green ribbon on the Christmas tree in the corner of the room, so she filched it and tied a bow around the box. If only she weren’t such a Scrooge, she’d be the best Santa in all the land.
As she placed Perry’s gift on the bedside table, he reached out and caressed her wrist. She jumped out of her skin and dropped the box onto the hardwood floor.
“Sweet baby Jesus, you scared me. You’re always making me fumble shit.”
“Maybe you’re just not very observant.” His voice was sleep-roughened and sweet. She smiled at him.
“Is that for me?”
“Yes. I like giving you presents.”
He blinked sleepily. “I think you’re better at this Christmas thing than you give yourself credit for. You have a generous spirit.”
His words hit her in the chest and filled her with a strange longing.
“Go back to sleep. You’re not making any sense.”
His gaze flitted to the box on the floor, and she had to stifle a giggle. She was ridiculous.
“Is that a prostate massager?” he asked.
“Yes. It’s a parting gift.”
He laughed. “Well, Happy Holidays to me, I guess.”
Sasha Holiday is so over the holidays after getting left at the altar last Christmas Eve. But as the marketing maven for Lady Robin’s Intimate Implements, she’s stuck not-so-merrily pitching naughty toys at a romance book club’s Christmas party. Her loathing of the yuletide only intensifies as a snowstorm rolls in and traps her at the Winterberry Inn. Stranded with her is Perry Winters—a hot bearded book club member trimmed in flannel and tattoos.
Perry’s a romantic with an unerring belief in the magic of the season, and he recognizes a Christmas miracle when he sees it. Brave, smart, and confident—Sasha Holiday is a gift. And the gifts keep coming when she suggests they pass the time with some no-strings fun. After all, she has a big bag of toys that would make even Santa want to stay in bed on Christmas Eve.
But the frisky festivities turn complicated as feelings spark between Sasha and Perry. Perry wants to see Sasha once the snow clears, but Sasha is reluctant to take the relationship sleigh ride again. Perry will have to show her that love is more than just a holiday feeling.
