One kiss under the mistletoe destroyed a friendship. Will another Christmas kiss remake it into something better?


Eli hasn’t been home since he left at eighteen with a heart aching from his best friend’s rejection and his father’s intolerance. But when his father reaches out, Eli figures it’s time to make peace with his family. He doesn’t expect to come face-to-face with Turner too — or to learn that the straight friend he’d foolishly loved is actually bisexual — but once the shock wears off, he knows exactly what he wants for Christmas.


Turner’s life isn’t everything he’d once planned, but he’s happy to be the shoulder his loved ones lean on. They keep him busy, which is just as well since none of his dates have really clicked. He hasn’t been able to connect with anyone the way he did with his former best friend. When Eli shows up for the holidays after years away, Turner doesn’t know what hit him. But he knows one thing: This time, he wants to give Eli a reason to stay.


All I Want Is You is a friends to lovers, second-chance romance with an HEA.

Today in The Loft: Fellow eXtasy author Cameron Allie!

November 30, 2018 Seelie Kay 0

Visiting me today in The Loft is Canadian author Cameron Allie. Cameron, who resides in Ontario, writes romance for my publisher, eXtasy Books, and is extremely active on the eXtasy Books/Devine Destinies Facebook Page, the Book Carousel. Despite the fact that she is a the mother of an eight-month-old daughter, Cameron continues to produce scintillating love stories. And today, she is offering readers a great special on some of her books!

S:  Good morning, Cameron! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Tell me, why do you write romance?

C: I believe that we need more happiness in the world. Romance novels for me are an escape. I get to write a HEA (Happily Ever After). I help a reader escape whatever is happening in their daily lives and help them find a bit of joy. It’s sexy and fun and a great distraction.

S:  I have to agree, not only as a reader, but also as an author. I think romance novels provide a safe and satisfying escape from the daily grind. 

Do you believe you fall in love only once?

C:  I don’t think so. I think there are all kinds of love, but if we’re talking romantic love, then I feel you can fall in love multiple times, even with the same person.

S:  I have always envied those who fell in love with their partners again and again, at different stages in their relationship. 

Where do you do your best thinking?

C:  When I’m driving in the car. I find this is the best place to get inspiration. That or as soon as I try to go to sleep at night!

S:  (chuckles) I guess I am too busy yelling at other drivers to do any productive thinking in the car! 

If you could “seize the day,” how would you do it?

C:  Right now, I’m fighting a cold and I have an eight-month-old daughter, who might be catching the cold. So for me right now seizing the day would be a good long nap, followed by some spa treatments, a bubble bath, and a nice dinner that I don’t have to prepare, followed by some baby snuggles. I totally sound like a typical mom now. “I’d have a ME day!”

S:  (smiling) I was so sleep deprived during that first year with my son, I could have slept for a month!  I would have been afraid to take a bubble bath for fear I’d fall asleep and go under. However, every new mom needs and deserves some pampering. Motherhood is hard work!

With everything going on in your life, where do you turn for inspiration for your writing?

C:  I find the group Imagine Dragons to be quite inspirational.

S:  You currently have special promotion with your holiday books. Tell me about that.

C:  Readers who purchase my book, “My Mistletoe Master”  directly from my publisher at https://www.extasybooks.com and then send me proof of purchase (either by email or through Facebook) will receive a free copy of “An Unexpected Christmas Gift.”


S:  Tell me more about “My Mistletoe Master.”

C:  Here’s the blurb–

Nick has always wanted Amelia Fuller, his best friend’s little sister, but is he capable of overcoming a past that threatens to come between them?

Amelia Fuller has been in love with her older brother’s best friend for the better part of two decades. After working up the courage to finally tell him how she feels, he broke her heart. Now, three years later, she’s home for the Christmas holidays and finds Nick’s feelings toward her suddenly changed.

Nick doesn’t like to make the same mistake twice. When Amelia arrives home after a three-year absence, Nick decides he’s no longer going to hide the way he feels about her. His friendship with his brother and a past that left him feeling ashamed were the only things holding him back, but missing her for three long years has finally put things in perspective  for Nick.

After Nick catches Amelia enjoying a little fetish pornography, he convinces her to agree to a hot fling, but much to Nick’s displeasure, she wants to keep their affair secret. Sneaking around and indulging in risky sexual play while staying at her parent’s home for the holidays won’t get Amelia everything she’s always dreamed of. Terrified to expose her heart once more, Amelia struggles to discover whether they can overcome their past.


S:  Where can readers purchase “My Mistletoe Master?”

C:  It’s available at all major booksellers, but for the purposes of this promotion, the book should be purchased here–www.extasybooks.com/my-mistletoe-master/.

S:  Cameron, thanks so much for visiting today. To learn more about Cameron, please visit–

There are two sides to every story, even those buried in the past.


When Sam spots the hot guy moving in next door, he’s all for going round to introduce himself. That soon changes when it turns out his new neighbour is in fact an old school acquaintance, Charles Whitmore. Sam didn’t like him back then, and fifteen years haven’t altered that.


Splitting up from his long-term boyfriend means a move across the city for Charlie. As luck would have it, his immediate neighbour is a guy he went to school with, Sam Gellar. While Sam is less than welcoming, his best mate is more than happy to invite Charlie into their social circle. Whatever problem Sam has with Charlie, Charlie resolves to get to the bottom of it, because, frosty beginnings aside, Charlie likes him.


With Christmas just around the corner, fate thrusts them together, and they get on so much better than they ever did at school. Despite his efforts not to, Sam develops feelings for Charlie, and they appear to be reciprocated. If Sam wants to take things further he needs to either confront Charlie about their past–a past Charlie seems to have forgotten entirely–or let it go and move on. Sam knows deep down that he can’t let it go, but it never seems the right time to bring it up. Until it is.

Marry me for 1 year. Payment: $1.2 million.


Hayden Somerset is convinced the ad is a joke, but he responds anyway because, hello, $1.2 million. He’s broke, living in a tiny apartment with two roommates, and exhausted from praying his ancient car survives just one more week. His skyrocketing rent and crushing student loans aren’t helping either. At this point, there isn’t much Hayden wouldn’t do for that kind of cash.


The ad isn’t a joke. Jesse Ambrose is absolutely serious. His father, the charismatic patriarch of a powerful Hollywood dynasty, has his eye on politics, and he’s counting on California’s liberals and progressives to elect him. But Jesse knows what his father believes when cameras and voters aren’t around. As the election looms, he’ll do anything to force the man’s hand and show the public who Isaac Ambrose really is.


Anything, including marrying a stranger so his father will make good on his promise to disown Jesse if he ever takes a husband.


Now he just has to wait for his father to take the bait… and try not to accidentally fall in love with his fake husband.

Mall Santas aren’t supposed to be hot.


Hunter Adams is hopelessly adrift after college. He’s still a virgin, can’t find a real job, and has no clue what to do with his life. In desperation, he returns to his humiliating old job as an elf at the Santa’s Village in his hometown’s dying mall. The Santa on the job is an unexpectedly sexy lumberjack, twice Hunter’s size and age. He makes Hunter feel very naughty—too bad he’s grumpy and intimidating.


Years after the tragic death of his partner, Nick Spini has his beagle and long, hard days on his Christmas tree farm. That’s plenty. But he can’t refuse a loyal friend’s plea for help and finds himself filling in as Santa at the local mall. Despite Nick’s attempt to stay aloof, the beautiful, anxious young man playing elf brings out his long-dormant daddy instincts.


When a surprise blizzard traps them alone in Nick’s isolated forest home, their attraction burns even brighter. Will they surrender to the sizzling connection between them and find the release and comfort they crave?


Santa Daddy is a holiday gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring an age gap, steamy m/m first times, daddy role-playing and light spanking, Christmas romance feels, and of course a happy ending.

CAN’T GET HER…
Deke Gregory has a type – petite, feminine, pliable. His ex-wife was his

joint custody and a family “village” raising his son, Deke sets
out to find a woman who ticks all his boxes and thinks he walks on
water. Enter Doctor Taylor De Witt: tall, strong, willful,
opinionated, and too busy to be bothered with soothing his rough
edges. Imagine his surprise when he falls for her – hard.
OUT OF HIS HEART
Taylor De Witt knew she would be a heart surgeon since college. Now a single
mother with a schedule that requires roller blades, she has little

Powderfinger
Nick Swann Investigates Book 1
by Keller Yeats
Genre: Horror

“Powderfinger” is a present-day scary horror story set mainly on the decrepit,
abandoned but soon to be redeveloped, bank of an old canal between
two towns. It centres on an old tar works known as Raven’s Gate. Nick
Swann is a world weary mid-forties widower and Assistant Probation
Warden at St Joseph’s Hostel for young male criminals, situated
overlooking the canal and Raven’s Gate. A woman is brutally killed on
the bank opposite the Hostel on a night when Nick is on duty. Nick
believes his lads had nothing to do with it, though consequently Nick
is suspended for issuing too many late passes at once. Then another
woman is killed and Nick becomes drawn into discovering the culprit.
He works with DCI Findlay and DS Deacon as the murder toll rises.
Together with help from his old friends Alan and Hugo, Nick’s
research uncovers a long series of similar murders in the same area,
stretching back through the centuries. “Powderfinger” as
the killer is dubbed, appears to be some kind of ancient mellifluous,
malevolent, murderous being that attacks anyone it considers to be
disturbing its peace and quiet. Eventually, as the story climaxes,
Findlay, Deacon, Nick and Alan set a trap to lure “Powderfinger”
to his doom and rid the area of this beast once and for all. Yet,
traps can swing both ways.

mysterious shores of Llyn Isaf, in Wales. He becomes intrigued by its
mist-covered lake island, Ynys Y Niwl and its dark, ancient and long
deserted mansion, Wyndwrayth.
Its moldering edifice holds many secrets and treasures, some of which
draw Nick and his old friend Alan, into dangerous realms. Death
stalks the island and as the dangerous spectral figures of The Millar
of Souls, The Paladin and Gideon reveal themselves, it becomes
increasingly difficult to discern between reality and dreams.
As the death toll rises, Nick finds himself, along with his new partner,
Wendy and her Wolf, Mir embroiled in a struggle not just to maintain
sanity but to stay alive.
