With only a few months left before she graduates and earns her teaching degree, she decides to make her move at the company Christmas Party. As if that wasn't nerve racking enough, her place of employment is an exclusive BDSM club and her plans to ensnare her Dominant bosses attention revolves around them bidding on her at the charity submissive auction.
Trent and Jack have been fighting a losing battle to keep their hands off of their beautiful waitress, Shyla, until she no longer works for them. Her gentle spirit and genuinely good heart call to them almost as much as her obvious submissive inclinations. When she surprises them by arriving at their Christmas party dressed like a wet fetish dream, and they learn she plans on being part of the submissive auction, the men quickly decide that the time to show Shyla who she belongs to and who truly loves her has arrived." ~ From Goodreads
Peppermint Passion was a sexy little Christmas story! The stage is set for a nice anticipation of a quite hot ménage, and when you add some light bdsm spices you got a hot read!
Trent and Jack share everything, and now they wanna share Shyla, but it's not just sex, they've fallen for her while keeping their distance - and now that there is no distance to be kept things look good for a nice happily ever after, with spanking, trio.
I liked the fact no one fancied another more than the other. Nice balance and nice emotional writing, it felt passionate but sweet and sexy as hell with two big guys ( one with excellent piercing ideas ) petting to get their woman.
Peppermint Passion is 1/4 of The More The Merrier: Menage Holiday Collection see the rest come the following three days!
Niina : Welcome to For The Love of Reading, Ms. Mayburn , I’m glad you could make it!
Ann Mayburn : So nice to be here, Niina :) I love your banner image! I've always had a thing for redheads, tried to be one myself a couple times but with an Italian background that just didn't work out. Not too many deeply tan redheads out there.
Niina : LOL! Thanks, it's new. Let’s get started! Can you tell 4 fun unknown facts about you so we can break the ice?
Ann : Ummmm, let's see. I swear like a drunken sailor, but because I have kids I've had to start substituting words...like fudge....and mother fudger...and fudge this. ;) I have the complete inability to just sit down and watch TV, I have to be doing something else like crocheting. Now that I'm a mom, I find myself gaining more respect for my mother everyday. I'm a research nerd and one of my favorite things to do is loose myself in some obscure topic. Oh, and I'm hopelessly addicted to using smiley faces. I'm rather sarcastic by nature so I throw a :) into the conversation so people realize that I'm being sarcastic.
Niina : LOL! Oh, fudge. ;) How did you come about to write a Christmas novella?
Ann : I love Christmas! I really do. While I hate that Christmas ate Thanksgiving and is trying to conquer Halloween, I still get excited about it. I love trying to capture that sense of anticipation and joy, and hopefully filling my reader with those same emotions.
Niina : Why do you think Christmas and Erotic Romance go well together?
Ann : What is Christmas about if not love?
Niina : Well ain't that true! What does it take to write a really hot love scene?
Ann : Music for sure. I have a pair of kick ass bass boost/noise canceling headphones that I wear when I'm writing a sex scene, helps drown out the sound of cartoons. ;) The book sets the mood for the music I'm listening too. My current WIP has both very emotional moments, and some super yummy BDSM. For the emotional moments I tend to listen to the Enigma station on Pandora and for the BDSM I listen to Nine Inch Nails. Oh, and for everything else I tend to listen to Dubstep. Bassnectar is a current favorite.
For the WIP that I just finished up, Guarding Hope, the hero has an injury to his eyes that he sustained in Iraq from a bombing. His pupils no longer dilate correctly so bright lights hurt his eyes. In his mind he equates the leading lady like the sun, something too brilliant for him to look at from his life in the shadows. I was listening to random music and stumbled across this song which instantly became Danny(the hero)'s theme song. http://vimeo.com/25938273 If you listen to this I suggest you turn the volume up and listen to it through decent speakers. Then be ready to have the bass vibrate you.--side note--The video is rather odd, and has nothing to do with the people in my head. ;)
