Minnesota Christmas series
The Minnesota Christmas series is a light-hearted escape into an idyllic Minnesota Northwoods small town. In Logan, Minnesota, you can expect shenanigans, snow, plenty of sex, and always a happily ever after. Book one, Let It Snow, features Marcus and Frankie. Marcus is a lawyer-turned lumberjack determined to scrub the Cities from his mind…until a freak snowstorm lands Minneapolis hairstylist Frankie in the cozy cabin Marcus shares with his best friends. Book two, Sleigh Ride, is about the jolly, brash Arthur and the fussy town librarian Gabriel, who hate each other more than they hate anyone else, right up until the point when those sparks ignite a fire they had no intention of starting. Book three, Winter Wonderland, is the story of Paul, the member of the “three bears” who’s pined for love the longest and has found it in the most unlikely of places, the swishy care center nurse Kyle, who once in the bedroom isn’t swishy in the slightest. Book four, Santa Baby, expands Arthur and Gabriel’s relationship with the addition of Dale Davidson, who is also developing Logan itself, turning it into Christmas Town.
The series is known for its highly-drawn secondary characters, idyllic small-town setting, serious subjects smoothed out with heartwarming holiday moments, and spicy (but not too spicy) romantic moments.Santa Baby concludes this series, but Logan isn’t done with its stories, and new characters and new series will be coming soon from Christmas Town, Minnesota.

Summary: Trimming the tree is more fun with three.
Twin Cities developer Dale Davidson has come to Logan, Minnesota, to turn it into Christmas Town, not to give in to Arthur Anderson’s offer to join him and his fiancé, Gabriel Higgins, for a Christmas Eve threesome. Dale is polyamorous, but it’s clear Arthur is offering a night of fun and nothing more. Maybe one night with the couple he admires so much won’t hurt…
Together the three of them light a fire hot enough to boil Lake Superior in January, and one night of fun becomes an extended engagement as Dale puts down some tentative roots in his new hometown. Everyone loves Dale, Logan’s own Santa Claus, and somehow no one knows what wild times are happening right underneath their noses. No one knows, either, the complicated ways they’re falling in love with one another.
But a shadow from Dale’s past emerges, an abuser threatening him with violence and shame. Ronny doesn’t want a happy ever after for Dale, only to draw him back into a consuming darkness. It will take the love of not only Gabriel and Arthur but all of Logan to convince their Santa he has nothing to be ashamed of—and that he will always have a home in their hearts.
Let it Snow (Minnesota Christmas #1)
The weather outside is frightful, but the cabin is getting pretty hot.
Stylist Frankie Blackburn never meant to go to Logan, Minnesota, but his malfunctioning GPS decided otherwise, and a record-breaking snowfall ensures he won’t be heading back to Minneapolis anytime soon. Being rescued by three sexy lumberjacks is fine as a fantasy, but in reality the biggest of the bears is awfully cranky and seems ready to gobble Frankie right up.Marcus Gardner wasn’t always a lumberjack. Once a high-powered Minneapolis lawyer, he’s burned out and back home in Logan to lick his wounds, not play with a sassy city twink who might as well have stepped directly out of his past.As the north winds blow and guards come down, Frankie and Marcus find they have a lot more in common than they don’t. Making a relationship last beyond a snowstorm could prove impossible when one man won’t live in the country and the other won’t return to the city. Yet the longer it snows, the deeper they fall in love, and all they want for Christmas is each other.Warning: Contains power outages, excessive snowfall, and incredibly sexy bears.
Minnesota Christmas, Book 2
Arthur Anderson doesn’t want anything to do with love and romance, and he certainly doesn’t want to play Santa in his mother’s library fundraising scheme. He knows full well what she really wants is to hook him up with the town’s lanky, prissy librarian.It’s clear Gabriel Higgins doesn’t want him, either—as a Santa, as a boyfriend, as anyone at all. But when Arthur’s efforts to wiggle out of the fundraiser lead to getting to know the man behind the storytime idol, he can’t help but be charmed. The least he can do is be neighborly and help Gabriel find a few local friends.As their fiery arguments strike hotter sparks, two men who insist they don’t date wind up doing an awful lot of dating. And it looks like the sleigh they both tried not to board could send them jingling all the way to happily ever after.Warning: Contains a feisty librarian, a boorish bear, small town politics, deer sausage, and a boy who wants a doll.
Minnesota Christmas, Book 3
Paul Jansen was the only one of his friends who wanted a relationship. Naturally, he’s the last single man standing. No gay man within a fifty-mile radius wants more than casual sex.No one, that is, except too-young, too-twinky Kyle Parks, who sends him suggestive texts and leaves X-rated snow sculptures on his front porch.Kyle is tired of being the town’s resident Peter Pan. He’s twenty-five, not ten, and despite his effeminate appearance, he’s nothing but the boss in bed. He’s loved Paul since forever, and this Christmas, since they’re both working on the Winter Wonderland festival, he might finally get his chance for a holiday romance.But Paul comes with baggage. His ultra-conservative family wants him paired up with a woman, not a man with Logan’s rainbow connection. When their anti-LGBT crusade spills beyond managing Paul’s love life and threatens the holiday festival, Kyle and Paul must fight for everyone’s happily ever after, including their own.Warning: Contains erotic snow art, toppy twinks, and super-sweet holiday moments. Best savored with a mug of hot chocolate with a dash of spice.
