Reindeer Games by Jessica Clare
When mouthy Luna is voted off of Endurance Island: Alaska first, she's a little bitter about it. The only thing that assuages her pride is knowing that Owen(the sexy-but-douchey guy that ousted her) was out next. This means, unfortunately, that they're spending a lot of time at the Loser Lodge together. But will their fiercely competitive natures bring them together for the sexiest Christmas of all?
Undressed by Jen Frederick
Noah and Grace's happy ever after hits a stumbling block in the form of one shady professor threatening Noah's scholarship eligibility. Noah is given the choice of throwing his New Year's MMA fight for a big payoff or accepting that the true meaning of love isn't measured by the thickness of his wallet but the depth of Grace's big heart.
The Sound of Snow by DS Linney
Widowed billionaire Gabriel Trentham never expected that the new nanny he hired would be the same woman he spent an unforgettable night with six months earlier. She's determined to keep it professional between them now, but will a blizzard provide him the opportunity he needs to change her mind?

It's no longer the Christmas season but these are still fun for the inevitable snow days still to come. They practically beg for you to be snuggled under a blanket or sitting by a fire as you read a freezing cold day slip away. Right! I loved the winter feel and the steaming up the sheets, both in these character's beds and the pages of our books!
When I started this collection I had only read Jen Frederick's work so this was a nice introduction to the writing styles of Jessica Clare and D.S. Linney. Here's what you have to look forward to:
In Jessica Clare's "Reindeer Games" you'll get to experience two people learn to adapt to harsh conditions (think Survivor in the dead of winter in Alaska Ack, that would just be awful) and each other. She writes screenplays and he is a pastry chef...a very interesting dynamic between these two. This one reads super fast. I loved how much fun this one was! It is a lot of fun!
In Jen Frederick's "Undressed" we get to see how Noah and Grace get to their HEA as we gain more insight into Noah's insecurities and Grace's "family". I loved seeing how these two ended their story. Me too! I am now fully connected to Grace, as much as I have been Noah! Yay!
In D.S. Linney's "The Sound of Snow" we see two people meet with a bang and find each other, surprisingly, a few months later. It was a sweet ending with very little angst and some seriously steamy scenes. I wanted even more out of this one to develop their relationship a little bit more, but being that it is a novella it was a very nice introduction to this author!
These are novella length stories so be prepared to wish for more about these characters. Luckily it looks as though things are in the works for all of these writers so keep your eyes open so you can buy their books! I did want way more too, but I had a great time reading these. I've been all about the novellas lately. I think y'all will like these even if you're not familiar with these author's yet...You'll wanna get to know them a little better before you're done!
