In The Naughty List, Detective Kristian Kindl works as a NY police detective 364 days of the year. On the last day, he goes to his other job, handing out gifts to all the good little boys and girls. When Kris has to deal with a bad case, a best friend who wants to be more, plus his usual holiday stress, will he be able to work it all out in time for Christmas?
Evan is the owner of Holiday Greetings, a company that's flourishing in spite of the bad economic climate. The problem is that Evan doesn't much like Christmas, even if the holidays are what keeps his company in the black. In fact, Evan doesn't care much for anyone or anything, not even charming Carter, an artist with a portfolio almost as impressive as his physique. When Evan is confronted with the consequences of his selfish ways, he may already be too late to save his company and his fragile new relationship with Carter.
In A Green Christmas, Noël Chester is a practical man who dislikes the bustle of the holidays and completely detests his name, but when Noël meets Jack, a satyr with one foot in Noël’s world and one in a fairy realm, he discovers that sometimes what the heart wants isn’t practical at all.

I really love the writings of author Kiernan Kelly so I was really looking forward to see how this author would see Christmas.  I was not disappointed I love the originality and sense of bitter sweet romance in these three stories.  There is the story of Santa in the first story. You will not recognize this Kris Kringle at all.  Then we have a twist on A Christmas Carol. I loved this story such heart and soul. Made me smile and cry at the end.  Then we have a very unusual Christmas tree in the last story.  I loved the humor and intrigue in this story.
 There is something I think to stir the imagination in everyone in this anthology. I cannot say I had one particular favorite, I loved them all!! I hope to read many more stories from this author. The love connection and originality keep me coming back for more.
