Get Warm and Fuzzy. New Holiday Romance Story That’ll Give You All The Feels…

Someone wants me dead… This is not going to be a very Merry Christmas.

If arsonists setting fire to my barn right before Christmas isn’t bad enough, a sniper shooting through my bedroom window is like getting a lump of coal for Christmas.

But I don’t want protection. My father thinks otherwise and hires two rugged former military wolf-shifters—Axel and Tucker—to protect me at all costs.

But I’m not your ordinary damsel in distress. I’m a curvy, independent woman, used to running things my way. But when I’m trapped inside my cabin with my gorgeous bodyguards during a blizzard, sensual boundaries are crossed, leaving me attracted to not one, but both of my wolf-shifter protectors.

Now, not only is my life on the line, but so is my heart…

Renata: My sweet personality is one of my best attributes. At least, that’s what I thought until my friends staged an intervention on my behalf and demanded I attend racial sensitivity training. What? The suggestion filled me with special, individually wrapped curse words for each of them…until I met Rook.

Rook: My caring and unselfish ways were often complimented. I assumed the praise was genuine, until my best friend of thirty years called me a “privileged prick” and suggested a therapist for my racial sensitivity issues. What issues? I was prepared to tell him what he could do with his suggestion…until I met Renata.

Warning: This novella is an interracial romance that contains subject matter that may be triggering to some individuals, explicit sexual content and is intended for adults.
