The Writing Rose

Romance fiction in most genres are my favourite reads. Having travelled a fair bit in my misspent years, I'm now a solo-mum to a VERY energetic and adventurous little one and I've turned my spare time into reliving some past travel adventures and expanding on them to write entertaining (hopefully) works of fiction. Maybe they'll be published, maybe not. Either way I'm enjoying where my imagination can take me.

Naughty Nicks

Naughty Nicks - Christine d'Abo Synopsis
Kim and Nick first meet at Christmas and after a one night stand, Nick hires Kim to run his Christmas business, Naughty Nicks. So for the following three years Kim lusts after Nick around the holiday season as she manages the sexy stripping Santa's.Each year their attraction continues with lots of flirty banter and heated looks, but after a bitter divorce, Nick is not keen to jump back into the dating game, especially with an employee, so by his rules, it's been hands off since their first meeting.One passionate kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas and he realises he's had enough of looking and not touching.

The erotic sex scenes heat up the pages and the storyline that threads them together is a very easy read. At only 31000 words this is a great quick Christmas read.

The story of Kim and Nick is uncomplicated and based around Nick being badly hurt by a bitter divorce and hence, doesn't allow himself his heart to trust easily again. Plus as Kim is now his employee he has his ethics and keeps telling himself he can't have sex, or a relationship with her.

Kim is a no nonsense girl who knows her own mind and enjoys life, and all the adventures in it. She's hooked on Nick and has been waiting patiently for Nick to realise they could have fun together again. Which is a slight contradiction to how she comes across when first introduced to her. She knows her own mind and what she wants, and yet, she waits 3 years for Nick to realise they should be together again.

Even with gaps in the reasoning of character motivation I found it really wasn't needed in this read, it is just a hot, erotic Christmas read.
