"Pete hopes the magic of the holiday season will help him to mend the friendship one night of teenage indiscretion tore apart. A successful software designer, he is bringing his girlfriend, Gina, to Avalon to meet his oldest friend, and first love, Andy.
A dozen years have passed and it will take all the Christmas spirit in Avalon to mend the rift and maybe, just maybe, bring the three of them together for a night of explosive sex that will catapult them into a happy ever after beyond any of their wildest dreams. If it can happen anywhere, it can happen on Catalina Island!" ~ From Goodreads
Avalon for Christmas had a healthy dose drama, still a very lovely main couple who fit together well. And as and added plus we have a third contender who is interesting on his own accord, this is the second part of the plot a very heated threesome.
The second part is the drift between Pete and Andy, and them working through it. This sorta sucked some of the Christmas fun out of the story, but it didn't put me off. I liked Gina, she was nicely sane and didn't go too easy or heavy into the thought of the threesome being more than just sex, which was refreshing.
This is a very hot ménage romance, it's bit serious but not too heavy. But the fabulous sex makes up for it!
Avalon for Christmas is 2/4 of The More The Merrier: Menage Holiday Collection see the rest come the following two days!
Niina : Welcome to For The Love of Reading, Ms. Richards, I’m glad you could make it!
Kate Richards : Thanks so much for inviting me, Nina!
Niina : Let’s get started! Can you tell 4 fun unknown facts about you so we can break the ice?
Kate : Wow…okay, well, I have a view of Dodger Stadium out my window, I love grapefruit juice and Perrier, I am an Angry Birds nut, and I met my husband online nearly twelve years ago ( not sure if that’s unknown, Finally, My Love, my first published story, is based on our meeting at the airport the first time ).
Niina : Oh, Angry Birds ( a Finnish import ;) )! How did you come about to write a Christmas novella?
Kate : I am one of the managing editors for the Decadent 1Night Stand series and had decided I was too busy to write anything for Christmas, then suddenly, after editing all these wonderful stories…I realized I didn't want to miss out on the fun. So I approached Heather Bennett and Lisa Omstead at Decadent and asked where I could fit one in. They said sure…there’s an opening in The More the Merrier, want to write a ménage? Why not, right? If one sexy, adoring fella for the holidays is good…
Niina : Then two is better. ;) Why do you think Christmas and Erotic Romance go well together?
Kate : I believe Christmas is the most romantic time of the year, Christmas Eve especially. There is no time when love is more out there—who doesn’t want a Christmas Eve proposal or a sweet gift that shows someone knows us oh so well.
Niina : What does it take to write a really hot love scene?
Kate : I love listening to music that suits the genre, sometimes classical, other times pounding rock…varies on the story, but music is a great help to setting the mood. I don’t require silence but if it’s too noisy, love my headphones. It doesn’t hurt if my own romance hero has been especially wonderful or ummm inspiring that day either.
