When the man of her dreams decides to fight fire with fire, this curvy girl might just go down in flames…
The moment I set eyes on Emma Cooper, I knew she was meant to be mine.
Unfortunately, my shy little lamb loves the word no.
She's been rejecting me since day one.
So I'm breaking out the big guns and fighting fire with fire.
She's got too much on her shoulders.
Mine were made to support her hectic world.
By the end of the week, this curvy goddess will be mine.
Even if I have to lie my way into her life and charm her whole damn family first.
Hot, bossy, and relentless. That's Zayne Carmichael.
And the crazy man has his sights set on me.
He has no clue just how different our lives really are.
He owns his own private security company.
I spend half of every day chasing after my grandma and her sister.
Believe me, it's more complicated than it sounds. They're both eighty going on eighteen.
I know Zayne's lying when he says I'm in danger, but he insists on following me anyway.
Fine. He wants to play that game? I'll let him.
If he hasn't fled by the end of the day, it'll be a miracle.
There's just one problem.
The longer I spend with him, the less I want him to flee.
If you enjoy over-the-top men, steamy, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, age gap romance, and sassy heroines, you'll love Zayne and Emma's story.
All this curvy girl wants for Christmas is the scarred, growly former stuntman who sets her world ablaze.
Call me a Scrooge, but I've never been big on holidays.
When you spend them alone, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about.
Until Laura Groves waltzes into my life and turns it upside down.
Hollywood's curvy It Girl is too young and beautiful for a scarred, used-up man like me.
But that doesn't stop me from claiming her anyway.
Except now the world thinks she's hiding a big secret, and it's up to me to put the rumors to rest.
I'll protect her, even if it means taking a job on her new Christmas movie, The Naughty List.
I have one Christmas wish this year: Kaiden Huxley.
He's the sexiest man I've ever met.
When he kisses me, the whole world falls out of focus.
There's only one problem.
A horrible accident left him scarred, and he doesn't think he's good enough.
But when my life spins out of control, he doesn't hesitate to face his past for me.
Now, it's up to me to teach this incredible man just how perfect he really is.
Before this movie wraps on Christmas, this grumpy former stuntman will be all tied up in a bow.
If the world stops throwing us curveballs, that is.
Eight of your favorite authors are putting the "Naughty" into "The Naughty List."
When the cast and crew are summoned to Heart and Soul studios to film a last-minute Christmas movie The Naughty List, the mood is more bah, humbug than merry and bright.
But when the lights illuminate and the camera rolls, the action on set transforms from frosty to steamy faster than Santa can empty his sack down the chimney.
As Christmas Eve approaches, will these star-crossed lovers go their separate ways, or will they choose to stay on The Naughty List... together?

This over-the-top goalie refuses to crash and burn when it comes to the woman of his dreams.
The moment I set eyes on Gabbi Sterling, I know she's mine.
Unfortunately, she doesn't agree.
Her brother owns my team.
Her best friend told a little white lie.
And my girl is giving me nine kinds of hell.
Right up until we get lost in the woods together.
Now, it's up to me to get her out safely.
There's just one problem.
I have a concussion and no clue where we are.
Atlas Jacks makes my blood boil…in more ways than one.
The oversized goalie is infuriating. He's also infuriatingly hot.
I thought he slept with my best friend, but I was wrong.
Now, I have no excuse for keeping him at a distance.
Except for the fact that my brother will kill us both.
I didn't mean to get us lost in the woods.
Or to end up in his arms.
But now that we're here, I'm not so sure I want us to be found.
Right up until his life depends on it, anyway.
I'll do whatever it takes to save the man I love.
