“A very sexy Christmas story with a sweet HEA.” ~Under the Covers

The first of three novellas in The Smutketeers Present: A Kinky Christmas Carol…

Holly Knight is the feisty and beautiful head of Knight Enterprises in Chicago. She’s almost 40 and married to her job. Her sex life is an endless line of one-night stands with business men that she meets in bars, beginning her encounters with one demand: no names.

Ebenezer Hall, known as Ben, is hired to close a merger between Knight Enterprises and his London publishing company. He’s a notorious womanizer and relishes the thought of the games he will attempt to play with Holly to get what he wants from this business deal. When these two come together, Holly realizes that their chemistry is beyond her ability to resist. Looks like her rule of completely anonymous sex will be broken. Can she come out of this merger with her heart still intact and in its shell?

This was a fast and hot story of two hedonists that find themselves shocked to the core that their hearts have been claimed by the very person whom they first saw as a game and nothing more. The chemistry between Ben and Holly is playful and teasing at first, but later turns into an inferno of desire. Ben is sweet and charming, blond with a sexy little British accent. He’s not the cookie-cutter character that you might imagine him to be, which is what really made the story for me. As you can see by the cover, there are three hot men that manage to get Holly in bed in one encounter. A threesome had been her fantasy for years and this foursome was definitely more than I expected. There is some scorching male-male action here that was seriously hot. I want to see more of Justin and Kit! A very sexy Christmas story with a sweet HEA and some very funny character names!

About Eden Bradley

I’ve been reading and writing for as long as I can remember. When I was 3 ½, even though I wasn’t quite clear yet on my alphabet, I decided there were never enough adults around to read to me and demanded to be taught to read myself. My Auntie Mo took the time to teach me. At age eight, I volunteered for summer school so I could take a creative writing class. My friends thought I was crazy; all they wanted to do was climb trees, go roller skating, swim. But I knew even then that what I was doing was even better.

I wrote my first novel at age twelve with a good friend who is also still writing, as far as I know. At a sleepover at her house, instead of sleeping, we stayed up all night crafting a rather horrible romance novel. Hopefully I’ve improved since then, and I now have enough sense to sleep at night and write during the day. Usually.

I didn’t get serious about my writing until the summer of 2000. I went into it writing romance novels, since that was what I thought I could sell, but eventually I returned to what I truly love: writing erotica, and eventually blended erotica and romance in many of my books. It’s been a difficult and wondrous journey, learning about the craft and business of writing, but well worth it. And now, here I am, doing what I love.

Fortunately, someone other than myself loves my work, too. I write for Bantam/Delta, Berkley Heat (as both Eden Bradley and Eve Berlin), HQN and Harlequin Spice, and Samhain Publishing, and I have a few self-published novellas out, as well. Sometimes it’s a struggle, but mostly it’s wonderful and exhilarating. I also love to cook, eat, go to the beach, hang out with friends, shop – especially for shoes – and read everything I can get my hands on. I’m fascinated by art, tattoos, and what goes on inside people’s minds, which is what I love to explore in my books. I’m dying to travel more, and would love to spend a few months at an Italian villa, cruising the Greek islands, or exploring Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, I get to write, and someone actually reads my books, which is a pretty good life!
