Her Christmas Pleasure by Karen Erickson

Damien Morton is madly in love. Unfortunately, it's with his best friend's widow, Lady Danver. Damien is not worthy of Celia. Or so he thinks. Desperate to escape his feelings for her, he plans to leave the country at the first of the year. Celia treats him as a family friend and nothing more—until they share a heated kiss beneath the mistletoe...

Celia is shocked by the passions that surge within her at her dear friend's kiss. One touch and one taste aren't enough to satisfy her cravings, and she is startled into action. Damien has stirred something inside her that she never expected to experience again, and she must have more. Full of shameless desire and emotions newly discovered, she decides to pursue Damien and won't be deterred. Will she be able to convince him to stay—both in her heart and life—forever?

About the Author

Karen has always loved the written word. From being one of the best readers in her kindergarten class to penning romantic tales that never ended about her favorite band members (Duran Duran) in high school, she always had a feeling she wanted to be a published author. It just took her a while to seriously pursue it.

With the birth of her third child came a realization—it's one thing to talk about writing a book, another thing entirely to actually do it. She decided to go for it in 2005 and began her pursuit in writing toward publication. After finishing a few clunkers that should and never will see the light of day, her first erotic romance novella was e-published in August of 2006. She's since published more than thirty titles with a handful of e-publishers.

On a more personal note, she's a native Californian who lives in the foothills below the gates of Yosemite with her husband and three children. Oh, and the dog, the cats, the rooster and his harem including two turkeys...

If you’re looking for the perfect way to pass an hour with a glass of wine this Holiday Season look no further. Her Christmas Pleasure is like a Christmas cookie, a little bon-bon, a piece of fudge. It’s short, sweet, and yummy… I didn’t realize when I requested this book that it was a novella. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the length when I opened the ebook… Short doesn’t usually mean good in the Romance genre… It usually means underdeveloped characters I don’t connect to… It means I feel gypped by a lack of fleshed out relationships and bedroom scenes that seem rushed and [pardon the pun] unfulfilling. I could not have been more wrong in my prejudice of this book. I’ve waited a bit to write this review trying to figure out exactly how Erickson gave so much body to such a short book. Right from the start I felt involved in Damien and Celia’s lives. Probably because Erickson throws you right into the middle of things. The middle of a Christmas celebration, the middle of their relationship, and in the middle of Damien’s decision to stay by Celia’s side and fight for her affections…or run away to a new job and a new country. These characters have a history and you feel that connection and the tension right from the start. By the time Damien and Celia make it to their first bedroom scene you’ll be thinking “What took you two so long?!” even though you’ll only be, like, 30 or so pages in! Erickson is just that good at setting her scenes and forming her characters. I was amazed to find that the novella was over. I think I kept clicking after the final page just hoping for a magical continuation of their story (hey, I’m sure some of Santa’s elves specialize in Romance novels…they’re the naughty ones Sorry couldn’t resist!) Anyway, know that I wasn’t sad this book ended so quickly because the story wasn’t complete. Nope. Damien and Celia’s story comes to a satisfying conclusion [again, me and the puns today!]. I just wanted more because I loved the characters so much. I wanted to follow them into their happily ever after. I wanted more from their newly formed family. Honestly, treat yourself to this little Christmas nugget. You’ll thank me for the hour you spent in the company of Her Christmas Pleasure…It’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the season.
