12 Days of Kissmas

12 Days of Kissmas
Genre: Holiday Romance Novellas

Pine-ing for the perfect holiday romance? It’s love at frost sight with The 12 Days of Kissmas! A dozen standalone holiday romances so steamy they’re sure to melt that winter chill. From dashing doctors to dirty-talking mountain men, staying off the naughty list is about to get a whole lot harder.


On the first day of Christmas, I climbed my true love’s tree…

Dear Santa,

After everything I’ve been through this year, I think we can both agree that I deserve something special in my stocking this Christmas. And the burly, axe-toting, mountain man that just rescued me from an icy death sure fits the bill. At least, he would if he could pull that spruce tree out of his back chimney.

I’ve always been the nice girl, but all it’s ever gotten me is a cheating ex, a closet full of bridesmaid dresses, and one lonely Christmas after another. Maybe it’s time to try the naughty list…

Millie Partridge

Dear Santa,

I know I said I wanted to meet a woman. I just wasn’t expecting to find her in my pear tree. And yeah, I shouldn’t complain about getting snowed in with my sexy little trespasser, but it’s getting hard to keep my head on straight when she’s near.

Despite the off-key caroling, the baking disasters, and that one modest house fire, Millie Partridge is growing on me like a sexy little piece of mistletoe. I’m trying to keep it cool, but if she knew all the things I’ve been thinking, it might lead to a not-so-silent night and more than one thing getting laid under my Christmas tree…

Send help,
Sam Barnes

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love came to be my best friend

Mila Masters has her life figured out. Writing splashy stories by day while she writes dirty ditties at night, she knows better to want for more. Unless it’s the love and adoration it seems everyone else is finding. Sweet, forever after love is for romance books, not real life.

Or maybe she has had the best book boyfriend right in front of her.

Micah Townes busted his ass to get his life right. A troubled youth means he takes nothing for granted. Especially the most important person in his life, Mila. Even if he wants more from her, he knows not to ask at the risk of losing her.

A double date raises the stakes of their friendship—which maybe is not just a friendship after all.

On the fifth day of Christmas…he has rings in all the right places.

After years of traveling for my blog, seeing more of the world than I ever thought I would, there’s something tugging me home for more than just the holidays. I have no idea what it is, other than some sort of delayed homesickness, until I meet Levi Michaels.

I’ve been talking to him via text and email about a custom motorcycle for my brother, but I had no idea I’d be meeting the sexiest guy ever when I go to pick it up. Talk about bad boy biker vibes. He’s got a beard I want rubbed all over my body even if he is a Grinch. When we meet, I swear I hear carolers singing, but something makes him go colder than the North Pole.

Maybe he’s not a reason to stay. Maybe he’s a reason to keep traveling.

Anyone who tells you Christmas is the best time of the year is a liar and should be watched with great suspicion. It’s true. How can the big man in red even be trusted? Delivering gifts around the world reeks of conman.

When I meet Rowan Peters, I can feel a little bit of holiday cheer filter in for the first time in years. She’s a Christmas miracle if I’ve ever seen one, all sinful curves I want to lean into. Then I find out the motorcycle I’ve been working on for her is really for a man. It must be her husband. Somehow the lights, even the twinkly ones, dim with the knowledge that she’ll never be mine.

When I’m set straight, the only thing to do is go after my woman and show her one of my golden rings is just for her.

If you like alpha heroes and an insta-love story that is sweet but isn’t necessarily simple, then this is for you. No cheating with a guaranteed HEA. It is a standalone but is related to my Denver Family series (Banks Ink., Suburban Outcasts and Higgins Security). Meet Levi in Healing Her Home (Banks Ink. Book 5).

On the sixth day of Christmas, the geese aren’t the only thing a-laying…

Lorelei Cole thought she had everything together. Her Christmas Tree Farm was holding its own, and her flock of rescue animals was growing. Then, two pink lines showed up from a one-night stand and everything changed.

When a chance encounter at a small-town gas station brings Patrick and Lorelei back together, neither can deny that their past has collided with their future. Through ups and downs and a hard-won friendship with a flock of geese, both of them will find that the best miracles do come at Christmas time.

On the ninth day of Christmas, I was asked out on the Jumbotron…

The saying goes that nice guys finish last.

The more accurate statement is that nice guys and nerds finish last.

We don’t get the girl. We don’t get the happily ever after. Even if it is the one thing we’ve asked for from Santa Claus this Christmas.

So when Presley Dawson comes back into my life after twenty years, I don’t even try. What’s the point? As a Nashville Fury cheerleader, she is the fantasy of every man in Tennessee. What would the girl next door from my childhood want with a geek like me?

She’s outgoing. I’d rather stay inside. She’s adventurous. I think adventure comes in the form of a new video game.

We have nothing in common.

Except when we’re together. Then there are enough sparks to guide Santa’s sleigh without Rudolph.

But when she finds out that I never outgrew my geek phase, will she still want me? Or will our story be over before the ball drops at midnight?

It’s Complicated by Kindle Alexander

Cover Design: Reese Dante

“When looking for that love story that has all the feels and more, grab It’s Complicated. Every word is brilliantly-written and the myriad of emotions you’ll encounter will fill your soul like nothing else. 5++++++ stars all the way!” – emjaylovestoread
“No one gives us MM love stories like the very talented writing duo of Kindle Alexander and It’s Complicated lived up to all my expectations and so much more.” – Jackie Wright, Thelma and Louise Book Blog
“Whenever I pick up a book written by Kindle Alexander I know I am going to be reading a book that will draw many varied emotions from me; It’s Complicated was no exception. The characters have a great deal of depth and I fell hard for both Julian Cullen and Beckett St Clair.” – Erin Lewis, Thelma and Louise Book Blog

Nightclub manager Julian Cullen runs Reservations with impeccable precision and a deep sense of pride. But repressed memories from his abduction two years ago surface, leaving him struggling emotionally. Julian vows to reclaim his previous life but doesn’t factor in the biggest distraction of all: the handsome cowboy hanging around the club intent on gaining his attention.

Entrepreneur Beckett St. Clair built an industry-leading survivalist training company through hard work and dedication. The tough as nails outdoorsman can navigate any situation or so he thinks…When a chance encounter with a guarded night club manager leaves him tumbling head over heels into uncharted territory.

One man is lost to his past, the other dreams of a future.
Both men will soon find out love is never easy…it’s complicated.

“I’m being asked if table thirty-three can incorporate thirty-four into their party.”

Julian looked over to see a crowd of men gathered around the larger high-boy table. “No, give it some time. St. Clair’s a good customer. Get some barstools from the back, and let’s see if he arrives.”

“Hey, Julian. Have we heard from thirty-four? Is he coming in tonight?” Remington, another waiter, asked from about the midway point down the bar where he loaded his tray with cocktail glasses. “One of my guests wants to know.”

“Who wants to know?” Julian looked over to Remington’s section of tables as if a large red arrow would point him out.

“The older guy at table twenty-seven.”

Julian’s gaze locked on that table. All the men looked older, sophisticated, well put together, and handsome. Damn.

“Which one?” Julian asked.

“The older one,” Remington repeated, then turned with his tray full of drinks in his hand. “Is he coming tonight?”

So, the Marlboro Man had built a fan club involving more than just the club’s waiters and bartenders. Julian’s possessive side stood on guard. “We’re holding the table for him, but he’s late.”

Julian dug into the salad with his fork, stuffing a big bite into his mouth, and reached for the untouched glass of water nearby. He chomped out his frustration that the big, tall cowboy hat wearing mystery man was building some possible hookups.

Julian had watched as Beckett sat alone for hours at his table until some of the waiters were cut from their shifts and ended up joining the guy. Beckett had become a welcome patron in the club and his table a safe place for most of the guys who worked for Reservations to gather.

No, Julian hadn’t missed all the long lingering looks Beckett tossed his way. He liked the way Beckett watched him. Those intriguing brown eyes and that appealing gaze. Beckett was all man, every single inch of him. He knew that for a fact because he’d rubbed himself against all that masculinity when they’d danced.

An unexpected sensation had Julian dropping the fork in his hand to the plate, his gaze lowering to his trouser-covered cock. Holy hell, the way it plumped painfully against his zipper had his heart thumping wildly in his chest. The damn thing did, in fact, work. How long had it been since he’d grown hard? He couldn’t remember. Tears of happiness sprung to his eyes, making him fight to swallow the lump forming in his throat. Damn, it felt good.

How much had he had to drink? Regardless of his actions over the last few days, Julian had given up alcohol. Should he have been drinking this whole time?

“Boss, you good?” Ricco tapped the edge of the bar to gain Julian’s attention.

He paid the bartender no heed, not wanting to lose this moment. Julian had only had two cocktails over the last couple of hours. That meant he was practically sober, yet his cock was working again for the first time in a long while.

Under Ricco’s intense scrutiny, Julian’s cock deflated. He closed his eyes, bringing forth images of Beckett sitting alone at his table, rarely speaking to anyone. Every single time Beckett showed up or planned to leave for the night, his gaze sought out Julian. No matter how hard Julian fought the urge to turn Beckett’s way he eventually would turn, helpless to do anything but.

Beckett would smile and touch the brim of his hat. Fuck, what a sexy move. Beckett’s strong jaw and full lips, his dark tanned skin… Julian’s dick swelled at warp speed.

Hell yeah. Julian was helpless to stop the tear that built enough steam to trickle down his cheek. This had to mean he was healing, right?

“Julian. You good?”

He opened his eyes, prepared to share with Ricco exactly why he was great right now. His hand reached to wipe away the tear when the unique scent of outdoors, sunshine, and exotic spices hit his senses. Unmistakably Beckett. He looked over to see an expansive masculine chest and broad shoulders leaning into him as Beckett busted a move to avoid a collision with one of the busboys.

Julian lifted his gaze. Of course, he held all of Beckett’s undivided attention. They locked gazes for one, maybe two long seconds, before Ricco’s hand slapped down hard on the bar top, pulling Julian’s gaze toward Ricco.

“What?” He said the word with maybe three syllables of frustration.

Ricco showed zero cares about Julian’s obvious annoyance “Are. You. Goooda?”

“Mind your business. Concentrate on the job you’re being paid to do.” Julian motioned to the line of waiters standing at the bar, waiting for their drinks. But even that only held his attention for the briefest of moments before he happily lowered his gaze again to his dick. The damn thing was rigidly hard, straining against his form-hugging pants. Holy fuck. The relief was staggering.

Julian dropped his head between his shoulder blades, thanking the universe for this blessing.

“Mr. St. Clair, we were getting worried about you,” Ricco said.

“Call me Beckett.” The rich masculine timbre held hints of a deeply cultured southern accent, drawing Julian’s gaze to Beckett once again.

“A guy at one of Remington’s tables wants to buy your drinks tonight,” Ricco said to Beckett as he started to pour again. “He asked me to see if you’re interested when you came in.”

Julian’s head dropped forward; he couldn’t help his astonished stare. He got caught up in Beckett’s new look. Julian’s gaze narrowed to Beckett, admiring how he wore the hugely popular suit with the athletic cut. Beckett looked fashionable in a style that accented every one of his masculine curves and edges. He was clean-shaven with his hair styled and pushed back off his forehead. No cowboy hat to be found anywhere.

“Which table?” Beckett asked and turned toward the grouping of tables. His body angled to look where Remington pointed to a group of three men. Julian looked down the length of Beckett’s long body. He wasn’t wearing boots tonight or a tie. Instead, his collar was unbuttoned with a small amount of fur peaking from the opening. The look suited him. Julian’s fingers twitched to run over the man’s exposed skin. He’d bet Beckett had the same dark tan all the way down that expansive chest.

Beckett was mouthwateringly gorgeous in this new look. Who would have known the man could be even more handsome than Julian remembered?

Tonight, the man held an air of confidence that he didn’t usually have. Beckett lifted a hand to the men, grinned a sultry smile, and turned back to Ricco. “Buy his next round on me and tell him thank you, I’m flattered, but I’ve got my eye on someone else tonight.”

I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment.

That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.

Capturing Christmas


I never thought I’d see him again.

Until he kidnapped me.

Russell James was always untouchable.

Too dangerously beautiful. Too old for me. Too much my brother’s best friend.

But he was mine once—just for one night.

Then, he was gone.

Now, four years later, he’s kidnapping me off the street in a case of mistaken identity.

My cousin is married to the most notorious Bratva kingpin in Chicago.

Russell thinks I’m her.

Now, we’re on the run—from the Bratva, from the law, and from whoever wants my cousin—the real Mrs. Komarov—dead.

But Russell doesn’t just want to save me.

He wants to consume me.

He wants to finish what we started four years ago.

And God help me, I might just let him…

This standalone Bratva romance is guaranteed to leave your kindle steaming. Absolutely no cheating, no cliffhanger, and a happy ever after.

Welcome to a filthy dirty Christmas! Forget sugar and spice and everything nice … this year we want to show off our naughty side. Hot, dangerous, and over-the-top, we’re bringing you everything you were too scared to ask Santa for. **Don’t worry, these are still packed with the heroes you crave and the HEA’s you deserve!



I gasp, scrabbling for the railing of the staircase as my heels almost slip out from under me. My fingers curl tight around the frozen metal as my heart leaps in my throat. But I catch myself before I manage to slip onto my butt on the frozen stairs.

“First time in the snow, sweetheart?”

An older guy with a jackass smile and a Bears-logo puff jacket smirks at me.

Yes, kind of.

It’s not literally my first time walking on snow and ice. But this is my first winter in Chicago, and my first winter that hasn’t been spent in Georgia. Also, I’m in heels. On ice. Coming down the L staircase, at night.

Give me a freaking break.

“Just some ice, thanks,” I mutter back.

He keeps grinning at me as his eyes slide over me. I glare back as I pull myself upright and take the last step down the staircase to get away from him.

“Where you goin’ tonight lookin’ all dolled-up like that, sweetheart?”


“Yeah? How about you let me take you someplace nice, huh? Unless you already have a date,” he chuckles.

“I do, actually.”

I hear him turn to follow me, so screw it. I whirl and level my eyes at him.

“With the biggest crime Kingpin in the city.”

The guy grins widely. “All the tough guys say that to pretty girls who clearly ain’t from here. What’s his name, sweetheart?” He snickers. “I bet I know his goofy ass—”

“Viktor Komarov?”

The man’s face stills and goes white. I smile widely.

“He’s Russian. Maybe you’ve heard of him?”

“Have a good night, miss,” he says stiffly. The guy whirls and all but sprints up the frozen staircase.

I roll my eyes to myself. I probably shouldn’t go around name dropping “Komarov” like that. But whatever. Extenuating circumstances.

I turn and start to head down the sidewalk towards the restaurant. My name drop is mostly true. I mean, I amabout to have dinner with Viktor Komarov, whose not just the most well-known “gangster” in Chicago, he’s the international head of the Kashenko Bratva. I’m not just exactly his date.

My cousin Fiona—aka Mrs. Komarov—is.

Up until a year ago, I barely remembered her. We’d probably played together a few times at the odd family reunion when we were much, much younger. But then the Murray side of the family—that’s her maiden name—started to distance themselves from the Morgans, which would be my side.

I don’t blame them. Her dad was seeking political office. But even aside from that, no one in their right minds, family or not, would want to associate themselves with my family. Not after my dad died in a prison fight while serving a life term on federal drug and murder charges. Not with my junkie mom on a constant rotation of rehab, street corners, jail—rinse, repeat—until she finally disappeared.

After that, it was just me and my older-older brother, Jason.

And Russell.


I can go a long time without his name or his face entering my head. My longest streak is two months. But other times, he slips his way in, like a poison.

I scowl as I shake my head to clear it free of him.

Chicago is a clean start. Once Fiona and I reconnected when she heard I was applying to grad schools up here, she insisted I come visit to catch up. A weekend turned into a week, then two weeks, and then I just made the decision to stay.

Title: Fender
Series: Kings of Retribution MC Louisiana #5
Authors: Crystal Daniels & Sandy Alvarez
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: December 13, 2021


Sawyer Huntington, better known as Fender to his brothers, always knew he wanted more from life than his small town had to offer. He dreamt of fame and sold-out crowds screaming his name. The one person he loved more than music was Jo.
She was his inspiration.
His muse.
Until an act of betrayal ripped them apart.
Sawyer walked away and never looked back.
His journey took him to New Orleans. Sawyer would lose himself in the music he played until it numbed the pain. The Big Easy had a way of working her magic on the broken, so he stayed.
A gig playing at Twisted Throttle introduced Sawyer to the MC lifestyle. The Kings of Retribution gave him something he’d been missing for a long time; brotherhood and purpose.

Josephine Gates has only loved one man, her best friend, Sawyer Huntington.
Fate had other plans for them.
Sometimes the people we trust hurt us the most.
Josephine tried to undo what had been done, but it was too late. Sawyer was gone… taking her heart with him.
Moving on wasn’t easy, but Josephine was determined to make the best of the hand she was dealt.

The threat of an outlaw MC trying to overrun New Orleans causes mayhem throughout the city. Amongst the chaos, Fender comes face to face with a ghost from his past—Jo.
Old feelings resurface, along with the bitter sting of betrayal.
The problem is, he can’t stop thinking about her.

Truths soon reveal themselves.
One defining moment changes everything.

The Kings of Retribution are at war, and now, there is more at stake than his club or himself.
Blood will spill, and lives will be taken.
Fender would give his last breath to protect his future.
