"Santa's Boss" by Adriana Kraft was a very good wonderful  well written novella that only this author can give its readers. Who would ever think that when Joy Danser who was the assistant mall manager who wanted all of her mall Santa's to have 'real beards' giving the children the sense of belief but she never thought their would be a  a fantasy for even for her.  We find that Nick Polaris loved to play this part  as Santa for the children, however what will happen when he was up for playing Santa in  Joy's bed...Was she having a dream  or what?   When Joy consults  the manager of the 'Magical Gypsy shop that was located in the mall will she get the answers that she was seeking after the reading of her palm?

"A Gift For Adam" by Adriana Kraft was one short  sexy, funny with a lots of humor Christmas novel.  I found it definitely one of those reads that once you start reading you will find it hard to put down.  Be ready for a hot steamy read that only the author is noted for.  Who knew that Adam Grant would get the gag gift from Evie Strand.  The only thing about this gift is it wasn't for him but for Evie's best friend.   So, just what was this gift that caused Evie to be so embarrassed?  After receiving the 'gift' we find that Adam will return it and from there...a dinner?  What will come from this dinner?   I found all the characters were all very captivating and oh so colorful really helping to give us such a good read.  Be ready for: "Sensible Evie Strand from Home-and-Garden, devilish rake Adam Grant from Automotive, and a Chr…
