Nat King Cole begins crooning “When I Fall in Love” in the background as I shimmy out of my clothes. Swoon!

How the fuck did Khephren know I have a secret soft spot for black-and-white movies and old love songs? I blame it all on my baba. She and I used to watch the Turner Classic Movies channel every day after I came home from school. Baba would make us tea and cookies, and we’d indulge in an era long gone by.

No wonder I’m getting all sentimental right now. It’s the childhood memories with my grandmother. That’s all.

Yeah, right.

Fortunately, I’m mostly able to shove my complicated feelings aside when Khephren distracts me by pulling the waistband of his loose-flowing pants under his hips to reveal his big, bright pink erection.

I stare at it. His cock is certainly more colorful than the average human’s but otherwise similar. He’s a good size and girth, but he doesn’t have some massive monster cock that could split me in two. With appropriate prep, I’m confident he’ll fill me up just right.

I bite back a giggle. Am I seriously having a Goldilocks moment about alien dicks right now?

Then I look closer and do a double take. Khephren’s cock doesn’t appear to have a foreskin but is instead lined with a series of ridges and bumps.

I swallow. “Uh…those things on your cock are different.”

He scrutinizes my own erection, which looks downright ghostly it’s so pale in comparison to his.

“Yours is very smooth. You do not have pleasure nodules?”

I squint. “Is that a joke or is that seriously what you call them?”

“I am very serious. They’re so named because they can bring greater ecstasy to a partner when they rub against sensitive interior linings of the body.”

Fuck me sideways.

With pleasure nodules.

My asshole clenches at the thought of his ribbed-for-my-pleasure cock inside me. I need to know what those funky nodules feel like.


Seasons greetings and alien abductions! Can two misfits find love together? It might just take a Christmas miracle! Let’s hope Santa doesn’t mind that tentacles can be both naughty and nice…


There’s no way in Helgar’s Nebula I’m marrying the candidate my parents have chosen for me. I don’t want to be the house-husband of some stoic warrior who only cares about training all day. Boring! Thankfully, I’ve learned a thing or two from all those rom-com human movies I’ve illegally downloaded off the intergalactic web. No one will see it coming when I pull a runaway groom maneuver on them!

Once I make my escape, I can go on the solo honeymoon of my dreams—to planet Earth. It’s almost that wondrous time of year when they celebrate their holiday known as “Christmas.” Human Hallmark movies make it seem so magical. I want to experience it for myself! Now, I just need to find a human who can make my wish come true and help me have an authentic holly jolly time…


Scrooge was right when he said “bah humbug” to Christmas. This time of year sucks balls, and not the fun kind. I’ve just lost my crappy part-time job and I’m slowly sinking under a sea of student loan debt and crushed dreams.

Just when I think my life couldn’t possibly get any worse, my cat and I are abducted by an alien who wants me to help him experience a “real human Christmas” on his ship. WTF? Clearly he’s chosen the worst possible candidate for the job.

But there’s something about Khephren’s enthusiasm and eternal optimism that starts to melt even my grumpy, cynical heart. Heck, I even agree to be his fake fiancé to get his parents off his back! I don’t know what’s happening to me, but Khephren’s charm is making me feel things I never have before. And those bright pink tentacles of his are strangely fascinating. I can’t help but wonder what all they can do…

As we spend more time together, I start to realize I might not want to go home and that maybe, just maybe, I’ve found what I’ve always been looking for. Could Khephren feel the same? If so, it would be a Christmas miracle and I don’t believe in those…right?

All I Want for Christmas is Tentacles is a standalone novel (74k words) in the Tinsel and Tentacles multi-author winter holiday MM tentacle romance series. It features a runaway tentacled-alien groom obsessed with Hallmark movies and Christmas, a grumpy human who’s down on his luck and says “bah, humbug” to the holidays, an alien abduction, fake fiancé fun, a cat named Jonesey, a droid named Rambo, a ship called the Sleigh Belle, found family, sweet and cozy vibes for the season, and a guaranteed HEA!
