I am a recent fan of short stories. Until I started interacting with people who wrote them, short stories were something I read in magazines. Now I’m actually seeking them out! If you haven’t fallen in love with the short story yet, these four will reel you in!
The Passionate Christmas quad of novellas are all centered around the town of Five Oaks at Christmas. They include: Holiday Headlines by R.M. Gilbert, Mid-Winter Magic by Nina Croft, Smitten by Silke Juppenlatz, and Snowy Encounter by Clarissa Yip. All are available from Decadent Publishing.
Of the four, three are paranormal novellas. I’ve never had an opinion about paranormal characters before: I didn’t mind them, but I didn’t need them. But after reading about these sexy angels, vampires, and paranormal investigators I want more! Snowy Encounter is the only non-paranormal, but is a hot sweet romance with an equally sexy hero!
I’m intrigued with the entire process of writing related, intertwined novellas! I might have to interview the authors to get some insight into the process! I’m also impressed with the ability of these writers to make you care about the characters–and want to know what happens to them next!–in a novella! That’s talented writing!
I don’t want to give away much about the stories. Suffice it to say that all four are sexy, hand-fanning required, romances. And I want more. Hear me ladies? More, please!
