Working Holiday by Bea Stover
Ellen’s husband Matthew is a professional chef, whose most lucrative work comes around the holidays. But this year, Mathew’s newest client, the obnoxious and aggressive socialite, Lillian Marsh, takes the cake, and Ellen has had it with Mathew working some private dinner or another every Christmas. Ellen has already experienced one serious spanking for throwing a tantrum over Matthew’s working this holiday, and she’s resigned to spending yet another one alone. Unexpectedly, Matthew offers to let Ellen come along to the dinner as his helper. But he reminds her to watch her Ps and Qs; this is one client he can’t afford to lose.
Or is it a client he can’t afford to keep? Will the cost be more than a client for Matthew or a spanking for Ellen? Will it be their marriage?
The Toy Solder by Kate Tanner
On Christmas Eve, in 1875, Abby thinks cannot get worse. Her father has died, and she and her younger brother have been reduced to living in poverty with a step-mother who despises them. She makes a frantic wish that the spirits of Christmas give her what she needs.
Her plea is answered, or is it? There is suddenly a toy solider in her Christmas stocking, and then the toy is gone to be replaced by a living breathing Union officer. Maybe what Abby really needs is to look at her life from a very different perspective. Maybe Abby is confusing what she wants with what she needs—.
Elf Magic by Melinda Barron
Naughty or nice? The eternal question. And in this light-hearted fantasy romp, Melinda Barron gives us a very different sort of Santa’s helper, the spanking elf.
Violet Marvin is definitely on this year’s naughty list, and she gets assigned to Klein, who is reserved for only the toughest cases. And Klein achieves his Christmas miracle— Violet comes to see that her behavior has hurt herself and others. Then Klein leaves, with the promise that she’ll forget it all— only the change will remain.
But that doesn’t quite happen. Can the elf do some real magic?
A Christmas Smile by Joannie Kay
Reni hated Christmas shopping, but with her hectic schedule she had no choice but to shop when the Mall was packed. To her surprise, the man who jostled her and stepped on her foot at the coffee shop was none other than Daniel, her old high school sweetheart… the man she broke up with because he wanted to spank her for behaving like a spoiled brat. Daniel and Reni had loved others, but was it too late to rekindle what they once had?
