5 Stars from The Golden Pen
“I loved all of the stories, they were thrilling and captivating.”
5 Stars From Manic Readers Reviews – Alberta
“I think you’ll like The Naughty List, either at holiday time or through the year. Lots of interesting characters, good story lines, and hot sex. Look for this one even after Christmas.”
“OK Christmas may be over but Santa’s elves keep an eye out for naughty behaviour all year round and have their Naughty List with them at ALL times. You have been warned! This collection from The Naughty Literati, a bevy of bestselling erotica authors contains some sizzling stories, encompassing a deliciously steamy smorgasbord of genres in which your fantasies can be indulged.”
“If you’ve had a chance to try one of the new Doritos Roulette chips, then you are familiar with the concept. It’s actually a win-win for the consumer because when you reach in the bag, you are guaranteed a Doritos chip. The kicker, though, is that you just might get a mouthful of one of the hottest chips on the planet–masquerading as a mere nacho chip.
“The boxed set, NAUGHTY LIST: THIRTEEN NAUGHTY HOLIDAY STORIES, reminds me of the same concept. It didn’t matter which story I picked, all 13 were enjoyable to read. However, there were a few that stood out with a much bolder appeal to me as the reader.
“I am always a fan of Charlotte Boyett-Compo’s paranormal stories, so the fact that she is part of this group of authors referred to as The Naughty Literati signifies a certain level of quality. From sweet to scorching, the selections in the boxed set offer a glimpse into the worlds of 13 different authors.
“Merry Christmas, Kitten by Nicole Austin not only provided an opportunity for me to enjoy the work of this author, but the story combined a shifter with an erotic storyline that probably needs a combustible warning.
“From ménage relationships to m/m love, the writers in this boxed set have presented some fun holiday stories that can easily be squeezed in between running errands. All of the selections are fast-paced, featuring interesting characters with a penchant for naughtiness.”
ARC Review of Naughty List By Harlie’s Books
November 25, 2014
“Outstanding about sums it up. Some pushed my limits, some used my favorite tropes and who knew that a lion shifter had her mate in front of her the whole time? You really need to grab this anthology and enjoy the holiday season with this offering from some of my favorite authors.
“I would like to thank Marianne Stephens for giving me the ARC to review. Again, outstanding and brilliant.”
The NightWind’s Visit by Charlotte Boyett-Compo
“Lord a mercy, what a way to start the antho. Steamy, paranormal and a twist that I didn’t see coming. Great job from a new to me author.”
Dear Santa…I Want A MAN For Christmas by Marianne Stephens
“If you have never read Ms. Stephens you are missing out. I love her work and Melissa and Nick are breath of fresh air. Believable characters and sweet ending.”
Prelude To A Most Unusual Marriage by Katherine Kingston
“This is the story that pushed my limits. Some harder elements of BDSM in it but in the end I loved the story. I would love to have a follow up with Elizabeth and the Earl. 😉 Great historical with a BDSM element.”
No Gentleman by Francesca Hawley
“Ms. Hawley has been one of my go to authors for a couple of years now and this is another one that I want a follow up too. Great characters, humor (oh yes) and a charming western town that seems ordinary on the surface.” *giggles*
Jewel’s Menage Christmas by Berengaria Brown
“For a menage, this is one of the sweetest stories that I’ve ever read. Sure the sex is smoking but underneath it all is what every couple goes through and has to figure out to put the spice back in their relationship. Great humor, too. 😉 Plus, the boxers need to be bought. LOL!”
Tune Me Up by Lainey-Jo Charles
“Trope alert!!! Friends to lovers! *swoon* Love, love this story. Plus their job roles are reversed and that just added an another element to the story. Plus, did I mention friends to lovers?” *swoon*
On the Eighteenth of January, ’78; or, A Night At Valley Forge by Regina Kammer
“I admit that this one pushed my limits too but once I thought about it and reconsider my initial thoughts, this one is a gem. Yes, its M/M and its not too graphic in nature. Pay attention to the dialogue and you will understand why this one is a true gem in my book. I can be dense but once you stop and think…brilliant.”
The Christmas Leopard by Lynne Connolly
“Ms. Connolly is one of those writers that I have read for years and she never disappoints. Menage at its finest with a paranormal twist that was fresh and new.”
Christmas Bad Girl by Trinity Blacio
“And I thought I had body issues. But what’s a girl to do when she’s taller than most. Loved, loved the sci fi twist with the Jolly Green Giant. Plus, OMG, the cute meet was one of the best I’ve read in a long time. Did I mention toys?” *grin*
How The Alien Stole Christmas by Belle Scarlett
*thud* “For some reason, I wasn’t too keen on this one because it was sci fi but Ms. Scarlett made me believe in aliens, humans and that her world is out there. It also had a bit of suspense element in it that just heighten my enjoyment of the story. Where can I get one?”
Merry Christmas, Kitten by Nicole Austin
“Another great story by Ms. Austin. Yes, I’ve read her before. *giggles* And as much as I don’t read much shifter stories, I loved this one. Especially since it had a lioness shifter with trust issues. The sex is scorching but the ending is sweet.”
Viking in Tartan by Suz deMello
“I hate when I read a story and there are like ALOT more in the series. *grins* Now I’m going to have to buy the whole series to find out if the curse stays within the clan or not. Damn it Ms. deMello! NOT! Thank you for opening my eyes to a wonderful series and it has Highlanders! Woo Hoo!”
Holdin’ On by Alexa Silver
“Overall, this one made me cry a bit. I hate when characters are sick. But Ms. Silver had me believing in the impossible. Plus, Max and Aislin were real, believable and sweet. Oh yes, big awe moment for me in the end. Ms. Silver is a new to me author and I will be looking at her backlist…pronto!”
