25 Days of Christmas Reader Celebration: Day 23

Up today is none other than author Brynn Paulin!!! Love, love, love her and all her books! Today she's talking super hot Yuletide Greetings!

Zach Colvin never believed in Santa, so filling in as Santa at the mall for one of his friends is not making his holiday bright. He’s supposed to be on vacation, not working. When his brother promises to send him a package full of holiday cheer he never expected it to be a near-naked woman.

Kate Morgan has made a mistake. After many emails, she’s meeting a man for a near-anonymous hook up, but she stunned to find a different man opening the front door—a man with a determined grin, mesmerizing eyes, and a naughty penchant for spanking.


They both froze as the door swung open. Her first thought as she stared into the blue eyes of the black-haired man was: this wasn’t Bill. Her second thought was, “Santa?”

Santa had never looked so good. His jacket hung open, displaying a perfect washboard stomach with a cute little navel that made her want to lick it. His red velveteen pants were too big and hung low on his hips, displaying what she’d always referred to as “the curve” on both sides and his were drool-worthy. A thin trail of hair led from his belly button to his waistband and pulled the breath from her chest—oh and his chest. Breathtaking.

With a swallow, she took in his smooth-shaven, angular  jaw and cheekbones. His lips curved as he broke the trance, and she recognized him—Zach Colvin, the principal at the local high school. They’d met more than once at various charity events over the years, and Kate had often had steamy dreams about him. She didn’t think he knew her name, but she saw a light of recognition in his eyes.

“You look like you’re on the naughty list,” he said. He grabbed her wrist and pulled her into the house. The door closed behind her, and he looked down at her with that same devilish grin. He pushed the coat from her shoulders, and she made a split-second decision. This wasn’t the guy she’d originally intended to meet, but he made her hotter than any picture ever had. Besides, she’d wanted him and been too afraid to make a move in the past. He’d seemed larger than life and so dominating. He still did. She could see why kids respected his authority. She would.

His callused fingers brushed her shoulders to her elbows as she looked up at him, mesmerized. Her body had gone from chilled to inferno in seconds under his gaze. Her cream flowed into her folds, begging her to let him take her for a ride.

“Have you been bad?” he asked.

She nodded slowly. “Very bad.”

“Do you know what happens to bad girls?” he inquired, his voice a low, sensuous rumble.

She shook her head.

“It’s naughty to lie,” he replied.

She bit her lip, afraid to answer. She knew what she wanted, but she didn’t know how to ask this man. What would he think of her if she told him what she really wanted?

He plucked her lip free with his thumb and ran the pad over the abused skin. “Bad girls get punished.”
