About the Author

It was in the 4th grade when Lisa Beth Darling discovered she was a naturally gifted writer. For her very first creative writing assignment, the teacher asked the class to pen a story about a baby bird's first flight and read them to the class. Putting pencil to paper, Lisa was instantly whisked away by a force she couldn't explain. When they were finished, all of the children read their happy stories to the class. Not Lisa. She got up and told of how the baby bird flew too high, hit a plane, crashed to the ground and died. She told of how the mama bird and daddy bird cried of how even God was upset sending the rains pouring from the sky. The class was speechless when she finished all they could do was stare at her. The teacher kept her after class told her the story was very good but it was different from the others. She asked Lisa if she'd ever heard of Icarus and did she base her story on him. Lisa had yet to encounter Greek Mythology or hear a whisper of Icarus. As Lisa left the classroom the teacher again told her how good the story was but suggested she might want to write something happier next time. When Lisa asked her teacher: "Why?" The teacher had no answer. Luckily for us, Lisa never took that teachers' advice. Today she brings us complex multi-layered stories rich with the trials and tribulations that make up the world in which we live. Not one to be pigeonholed into any single genre, Lisa's stories revolve around the intricacies of couples from range the intimacy of lovers, to mothers and sons, and brothers and sisters. Lisa Beth Darling is 49 years-old, lives in her hometown of New London, CT with her husband of nearly 30 years, Roy. She is the author of more than fifteen novels along with several short stories and non-fiction books.

Christmas Eve on Olympus was the first story I have read by Lisa Beth Darling. While reading it I couldn¿t help but feel like I was missing something in not having read the other books in the series. That being said the first part of the story read for me like a YA Fantasy. It was well written. For me it focused too much on the duties of Christmas Eve, like a list. I was able to keep reading because the author did create a fantastic world of the gods and goddesses of Olympus, and I love anything with a little bit of magic. It was a bit jarring when it smoothed into the intimate scene and it was like reading a totally different story. The sex scene was hot, well written, with very adult detail. A total clash with the first half of the story that made me wonder if this was a YA Fantasy book. The sex was steamy, it made me wiggle in my seat and I couldn¿t help but want more by the end. The main issue I had was the drastic jump from simple reading to detailed hot steamy sex in the matter of a few paragraphs. I couldn¿t get over the contrast in the moment. With all that being said it was for sure a good Christmas read! If you are looking for something to heat up your eReader, you should really grab a copy!

It's Christmas time in Olympia. Under Alena's instruction Ares teaches his son, Raven, what a Christmas celebration is. Of course this is Ares so you can imagine his contribution to the Mortal celebration. It's such a sweet story. If is Area and Alena so you know they make time for a sexy encounter. If you love the series like I do you don't want to miss this one!

Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews! Christmas Eve on Olympus is an entertaining glimpse of Ares, Alena, and Raven spending their first Christmas together. This story takes place during Child of War—A God is Born. Through Alena’s character, Lisa Beth Darling does a brilliant job of explaining and blending the traditions of Christmas and Yule. Alena’s nurturing and motherly nature shines in this story, as she teaches Raven patience while making decorations and describes the two holidays and their importance. Seeing Ares, Alena, and Raven as a happy family warms the heart since most of the time this family is anything but happy. After putting Raven to bed, Ares and Alena are able to celebrate in a more intimate way. The chemistry between Ares and Alena is always explosive. Their bedroom play is scorching hot, especially their use peppermint oil on each other. If you haven’t read the first two books in this series, you might feel like you are missing some of the nuances of their family dynamic. With that said, I still think this story works without reading the other books. For those of you who have read the other books, Christmas Eve on Olympus is a wonderful complement to the other books in this series. I thoroughly enjoyed revisiting this compelling and haunting couple.

I was enchanted by the warm and loving Christmas story about this unusual family. The love and indulgence Ares dotes on Alena is so charming and the delight of a child at Christmas time brightens and warms the heart. And then the adult portion of the story leaves nothing to be desired - Oh Ares, how I want thee, LOL! This author knows how to pull the heart strings and how to make you forget where you are for those few wonderful minutes that you are lost in her story. For that, I will always be a devoted fan!

I thought it would be fun to read a Christmas-themed sex story. While this story does have sex, what it mainly has is pages and pages and pages of description about preparing for the holidays (baking cookies, putting up a tree, wrapping presents). There's also a whole lot of narrative about taking care of a little child--tending his booboos, telling him stories, tucking him into bed. By the time the sex started (about 70% of the way into the text) I had long since lost interest. The sex scene might have been enjoyable if the 10 pages of banal domesticity preceding it hadn't killed the mood. Existing fans of the series might enjoy this piece. You might also like it if you love stories about stringing popcorn and taking care of children. If you're mostly looking for erotica, though, you can find better.
