Summary

“Pure festive joy; fun, charming, cheery and a very delicious romance, everything you would want from a Christmas book is right here.” —Chicks, Rogues and Scandals  All I want for Christmas is you . . . or you?   Eve Halligan is back in her hometown for Christmas after a whirlwind few years touring with her band, the Molotovs. A lot has changed since she left, but two things have stayed the same. One: Eve is head-over-heels in love with Lucien Malikov, the Molotovs’ bad boy lead singer. Two: Lucien is completely indifferent to her.   Still, Eve dreams that this could be the Christmas where she convinces Lucien that they’re made for each other. But when childhood friend and local caterer Theo Wright comes back into her life bringing with him festive cupcake and sausage roll conundrums, Eve begins to question whether her Christmas dreams have been wasted on the wrong man . . .    “Full of sparkling snow and cozy baking sessions, this is a treat of a read for Christmas this year . . . festive reading like a huge hug.” —Books, Life and Everything   “Very addictive reading . . . a fun and festive tale told with warmth and humor . . . a fabulous read.” —gingerbookgeek   “I just love this book. It’s not sugary sweet with some humor and of course the much longed for happy ending. 5 stars.” —B for Bookreview

    Mom caught me mind controlling sis. She didn’t know why her precious daughter was behaving in such a slutty manner. She blamed me. Ha, if only she knew.
    
    Distraught, mom drank the wine that I had laced.
    
    Now she was also my cum slut and would do whatever I told her to. Including fuck the dog.
    
    Excerpt:
    
    "Mom, come down and let me explain." Randy said as he pulled his cock from his sister's warm mouth.
    
    "My sweet little angel would never do this!" Ruth screamed at him as her eyes blazed with fury.
    
    "I was just sitting in my room and she called me and then she started stripping." He said, knowing she wouldn't buy that. Monica never could do anything wrong.
    
    Hell, if his sister had a been caught in the front room fucking twenty guys, mom would have shrugged her shoulders and allowed her to do it.
    
    The opposite was true if he even glanced at a stacked girl. His mother would've whacked him over the head and told him the mind his own business.
    
    "Do you expect me to believe that garbage?" Ruth strode over to him and slapped him on the cheek.
    
    With great reluctance, Randy pulled from his sister's warm mouth and when his mother struck him again, he blocked it.
    
    "Take care of Fido, sis." He glanced back at Monica as she bucked her hips, groaning with pleasure.
    
    "How dare you! I'm your mother and I can do whatever I want with you." She snarled.
    
    "Mom, if you ever want me to free sis from this, then you'll do what I want. Or she'll stay like this forever." He stated as he looked in her eyes.
    
    She recognized that he was dead serious and nodded her head.
    
    "Now come over here and sit down." He commanded as he pointed to the sofa.
    
    She dragged her feet to the couch and sat down as he instructed. Her eyes were like an angry cat's, ready to strike out.
    
    "You're going to drive me to drink, boy." She stated as she waited for him to explain himself.
    
    "Oh yes!" Monica groaned as Bruno spilled his dominant dog seed in her fertile womb. "That's it! I want all that dog cum deep in me."
    
    His mother gasped at the words spoken by her precious little angel. Then she turned her attention to him.
    
    "What have you done to her?" She demanded to know. "My baby would never do such nasty acts with a filthy animal!"
