Add in a reindeer-ish donkey, a Christmas competition, and a rivalry to end all rivalries and you’re bound to end up in disaster, right?
Finn Mayberry has enough on his plate trying to keep his Grandparents Inn afloat. The last thing he needed was some California state of mind starlet bulldozing into his town and throwing up a five-star resort right next to his family’s Inn.
But, now she’s here and he can’t get her out of his town or his head.
Freya Anderson took one look at the snowcapped mountains of Hollyridge, and fell in love. She’s finally here and ready to take on the task of proving to her father that she can handle running Alpine.
She never expected to make enemies with the sinfully delicious lumberjack of a man who runs the inn next door. He’s moody, impossible and completely off limits.
There can only be one winner, but you know what they say. All is fair in love and… Jingle Wars?
As luck would have it his well-intended play goes to crap, so Beast involves his brothers from his club the Grimm Wolves MC. Not only is he out of options, but his ol’ lady and son are also in constant danger from a cruel and heartless enemy with the muscle to back him. This enemy is close enough to Beast so he knows how to manipulate him by using his love for his family.
When a threat involving everyone connected to the Grimm Wolves MC comes to their front door, Beast and his brothers fight against the enemy threatening to pull them back into the darkness as they fight for their survival.
With their club on the verge of a war and the holidays quickly approaching, Beast works to fix his mistakes and make amends to his family. With help from his brothers and their ol’ ladies, Beast’s surprise Christmas gift for Cathy and Rider is completed. Will his family come home for the holidays, or will he end up lonely and alone on Christmas Day?

Title: Christmas with the Single Dad
Series: The Single Dads of Seattle, Book 5
Author: Whitley Cox
Genre: Single dad/erotic romance/contemporary/Holiday romance/Christmas romance/romantic comedy
Will a Christmas love built on lies melt away just as surely as the snow?
Welcome to Seattle, the Emerald City and home to The Single Dads of Seattle. Ten sexy single fathers who play poker every Saturday night, have each other’s backs, love their children without quarter, and hope to one day find love again.
This is Zak’s story …
Single Dad of Seattle, Zak Eastwood plans to spend Christmas with fellow lonely hearts. His kids are supposed to be at an amusement park with their mom. However, fate has other plans. When a woman from his club finds herself stranded in the snow, he takes her to safety.
Drowning in student loan debt and her father’s medical bills, first-year law associate Aurora Stratford allows herself but one splurge—a pricey membership to Club Z Fitness to watch the gorgeous Zak flex his muscles. Though out of her league, fantasizing about his blue eyes and tattoos is the only thing that keeps her sane these days, especially since her Christmas will be spent alone with her dead cactus and money woes.
When the snowstorm of the century moves in and the hero of her dreams offers her a ride and a place to stay, Aurora’s Christmas begins to look up.
However, Aurora is ashamed of her current financial state—she’s nobody’s charity chase—and her lies of self-preservation begin to take on a life of their own.
Can Aurora spend Christmas with the single dad and win over everyone? Or will her deceit get in the way of not only their happy holiday but her happily ever after?
**Note: This book can be read as a standalone. It includes lots of steamy scenes, cursing, and of course as with all my books, this has an HEA and no cliffhanger or cheating. If you like single dads who take charge, this book is for you.

He was about to ask as much when she moved toward him, her pace full of purpose. She grabbed his face and kissed him.
And it wasn’t just a peck on the lips. No, this woman knew how to kiss. She knew how to throw her whole body into it. A low and pleasant hum warmed him from the center outward.
Her soft, slippery little tongue pushed its way into his mouth. Then she started to suck. She started to fucking suck on his tongue. He moaned as his cock stirred beneath the towel, his hands moving to wrap around her back.
This had been so unexpected, and yet he couldn’t get over how much he suddenly wanted it—wanted her.
A shrill beeping sound from downstairs made them both still. She was the first to pull away.
Her light brown eyes were glassy, and her cheeks held an adorable pink flush. He dropped his gaze to her plump, wet lips and he swept his thumb over the bottom one back and forth. He stilled when she pressed the tip of her tongue to his thumb, then parted her lips and lunged at it with her teeth, nipping the pad.
He tugged it away, grinning.
Oh, she was a wicked little thing.
Grabbing her around the back of the neck, he crushed his mouth to hers, taking control of the kiss this time, forcing her lips to part for his, to mold to his. She gave over all the power and melted against him, her arms wrapping around his neck and pulling him down to her. He was about to push the hem of her shirt up to explore her lack of a bra when the loud beeping of the oven timer downstairs had them pulling apart once again.
Her ample chest rose and fell rapidly, his did too.
“Hold that thought,” he murmured, grabbing hold of his towel and heading downstairs toward the kitchen. “Be right back.” Then he took off as fast as his legs could carry him, hoping that his chicken wasn’t burning, but even more so that the woman in his bedroom would still be there when he returned.

A Canadian West Coast baby born and raised, Whitley is married to her high school sweetheart, and together they have two beautiful daughters and a fluffy dog. She spends her days making food that gets thrown on the floor, vacuuming Cheerios out from under the couch and making sure that the dog food doesn’t end up in the air conditioner. But when nap time comes, and it’s not quite wine o’clock, Whitley sits down, avoids the pile of laundry on the couch, and writes.
A lover of all things decadent; wine, cheese, chocolate and spicy erotic romance, Whitley brings the humorous side of sex, the ridiculous side of relationships and the suspense of everyday life into her stories. With single dads, firefighters, Navy SEALs, mommy wars, body issues, threesomes, bondage and role-playing, these books have everything we need to satisfy the curious kink in all of us.

I’ve always thought of Valentine’s day as a holiday for the unmarried, despite the origins of the holiday originating around Saint Valentine and his marrying of young couples.
And I think it is a wonderful thing when children get to make boxes and get cards. I enjoyed it as a child and my children did as well. I sort of wish this had been a thing at the offices I worked at.
I don’t like the hecticness of it, the rush to buy a present and/or card, reservations for dinner, waiting for dinner, and then trying to have a conversation with your loved one when you can barely hear above the din of noise.
As a married person, I have a day just for my spouse and me, June 15th, our anniversary.
I have spent the holiday alone, when my husband has worked or when he was deployed. And I usually would get myself a box of chocolates, a microwave dinner and settle in with a movie, or better a good book.
This year, I’m planning on making my husband dinner and I’m hoping for a box of chocolates. 🙂
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day my dear reader, however you choose to celebrate it.
As those of you who have read my blog for years know, my husband is a Veteran of the Armed Forces. Every Christmas I play this video in honour of those serving for their country around the world. Thank you for your service and thanks to the families who miss them this Holiday Season.
I’d like to take a moment to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving!
I’m thankful for my family and friends. Our business that we started this year and came out in the black at the end of the season.
I’m thankful for my fellow authors who help me on my journey and those whom I love to read.
And last but not least, I’m thankful for you dear readers, who read my works and send me notes of appreciation. If you’ve never thanked an author for their work, take the time to do so, it keeps them going and it is a lovely thing to give during this gift-giving season.
